Rated just 2 1/2 stars by Priceline, it was a real surprise to find this very large, new location just off of Highway 101 and at the edge of Santa Maria. The room was extra large, extra clean with a refrigerator and microwave...a eating table for two, Wi-Fi. We did not spend any time in the hotel but I think...

We've tried a variety of hotels in the Santa Barbara winery area, and so far this Holiday Inn is the best. The property was just renovated a year ago and looks great. The rooms are large, with a kitchenette and pristine bathrooms. It's quiet despite being right off the highway. The pool and spa were sparkling, and the spa was...

The rooms are pretty big and clean. They have a small kitchen with tile floor.the bathrooms are clean and a little larger than most hotels. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Santa Maria.

Stayed here for just one night. Greeted by an enthusiastic front desk associate and was checked-in very quickly. Just off the 101, it is great for a stopover. I was surprised to find that my king room was extremely spacious (in fact, I didn't really need a room that large) and had a kitchenette. I can only surmise that this...

Older hotel with some recent upgrades. Bed was comfortable and room was spacious. We had a recently remodel kitchenette in our room, but I think the microwave was from 1979... One of the elevators was kinda scary, probably should be inspected a little closer. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We got in late an...

Was traveling down the 101 late at night with hopes of making it farther down the road to Santa Barbara but got tired and stopped here and boy am I glad that I did. I got in around midnight and the nice front desk guy noticed I was a regular to Holiday Inn's and upgraded me to a suite. I...

I enjoyed my stay here. I was a little down that there was no free breakfast, but this place is nicer than the BW down the street, and much much newer, not to mention that it was priced better as well. For my short stay, it was nice to have a lot of space, and a little kitchenette. The bathroom...

Stopped here for one night driving home on Thanksgiving weekend. Many things went wrong, First, the jacuzzi was cold and the jets didn't work. The front desk supposedly was having it fixed, but by 10 PM pool closing time the water was only luke warm. Same thing in the shower - barely warm enough to use. The sheets were second...

We stayed for five days at the Holiday Inn. Our room was on the 2nd floor and it was fairly close to the elevator, so no issues there. Since we were there on family business, it was nice to come back and have dinner and drinks at the bar, as well have a good breakfast in the morning before we...
