    The bed was a little harder than others that I have had there.

    I have a problem getting the curtains to fulling close, to block out parking lot lighting.

    Nice hotel with helpful amenities


    March 22, 2015


    The Candlewood Suites in Santa Maria was clean and comfortable and offered some nice benefits. Location was nice - right off Hwy 101, but a bit goofy - finding a way into the parking lot was a challenge. Hotel staff was very helpful, pleasant and professional. Rooms have comfortable recliners in them, which I love because I have a back injury that won't allow me to sleep flat on a bed. We checked in around 8 p.m. and were pleased to find that we could borrow DVDs and buy ice cream sandwiches for a little desert. In the morning, we used their small business center to check our email. This hotel allows pets, and at some future time we might bring our little dogs along.

    Nice stay. Windows open enough to create good ventilation. Kitchenette has enough stuff to make it possible to make simple meals.

    Good place for an extended stay


    March 18, 2015


    The staff at this hotel were all very warm and welcoming, and it's a fairly good value. Everything you need is there, and the staff will go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable. Only major negative was that our room was facing the main road, and there was constant noise from that. I would recommend asking for a room on the parking lot side.
