I enjoyed the Santa Maria Inn. It has historic charm and the minor frayed edges add to the experience rather than subtract from it. The price is very reasonable and the front desk personnel are very helpful. The wine bar one flight below reception is...More

Sorry, I am just seeing this question. If I remember correctly our rate was $175.00 for one night which included fees and taxes. We were there in October 2016.

I don't have any pictures. it's not a jacuzzi but a jetted tub. Think of a regular sized bath tub with water jets, that's what they have.
