Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaliGirl93035 Holiday Comforts
Our stay made our holiday with family so enjoyable. My son said it was his favorite holiday memory ever. Our check-in was pleasant and quick. The room was clean and comfortable and HBO makes it that much sweeter. Quiet rooms close to an amusement park was excellent for our son. The convenience to the freeway and shopping needs was perfect - freeway on and freeway off. Even went to the Drive-In theater in town (double feature too). Now that was a true treat to experience. Will be staying again soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eric3768447 I stay here a lot
I stay at this hotel often while visiting family. It's right off the freeway and only 15-20 minutes from Pismo Beach. Staff is nice. Rooms are clean. I've never had a bad room or a bad stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trace10808 Well kept older HI
Second stay at this facility due to proximity to UCSB; much better than first. Like the suite-like rooms (very large room for two beds); very comfortable and clean. One of the best rates in the region for value. Two cons; staff acted like they were doing me a favor by checking me in-very disengaged and not particularly welcoming; and unbelievably poor television reception, so don't plan to watch a football game in your room with any enjoyment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Winefiends Don't get rid of the kitchens!!
We have stayed at this property for several years because of the suite nature of the rooms. We really like the kitchens and the ability to make your own meals. In that respect, this HI property is our favorite, by far. Wished that more of your properties had this option.
The restaurant and bar are great (love those tri-tip quesadillas and sandwiches), but sometimes you want some down time, especially after staying a few days. The rooms with the kitchenettes make it feel like home. I hope you don't get rid of them. We stay here on business simply because of their uniqueness.
The staff is very friendly and always acknowledge the Priorty Club Membership. I wish other HI proprties would follow your lead in treating Club members with a little appreciation. The rooms are generously sized and very clean; if only the TV reception was a bit clearer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tarbabe50 Excellent accomadations
Was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room; King size bed and a small kitchen with a serving/eating bar, large comfortable chair. Bathroom was spacious and the closet actually had a door.
The staff was the friendliest I've seen for a long time . . . front desk extremely pleasant and helpful at check in, everybody gave us a pleasant "Good morning" with a genuine smile the next day, waitress very friendly and patient at breakfast . . . all in all a great travel experience. Did not use any of the facility amenities since it was only overnight, but the pool looked great.
The only downside was early morning traffic noise and walking from room above not deadened.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jtsbb Great service, except for housekeeping
Previous occupants left fridge full of stuff, when I called down to front desk they said "sorry" never bothered to send someone to clean it. When I asked for extra pillows, they said "sorry we don't have any". When I asked for an extra blanket, they said housekeeping was already sent home but they would see if they could find some, 1.5 hours later, it arrived. When I asked for extra towels the following morning, they never arrived. A little pricey for an inland hotel,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rochelle54 great staff!
I needed a place to stay as I was working in Arroyo Grande. I had called the 800 number and the Holiday Inn in Arroyo Grande was wayyyy too expensive.. So I got stuck in Santa Maria... Thank Goodness.. The staff was so nice from the moment I walked in the door. My room was spotless, smelled fresh,spacious and very comfy.. The Bed was cozy and the bath room was perfect. I would so stay there again next time I have to work on the central coast!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by e135 Second time here. Clean. Comfortable.
Spacious rooms. Comfortable beds. Nice that they have kitchenettes. The front desk needs to pay more attention to service, but that's the only small complaint I have (zero IHG recognition here).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SPLA Internet Service
I was very disappointed with the WiFi service. I could not connect the entire evening. I called the front desk and was told that the WiFi does not have te capacity and I had to wait to see if some one gets off. I did not expect this from the HI brand. I have stayed at many properties last month, both HI and HIExpress, and have come to expect this issue with HIExpress properties.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by calkid Soft bed and noisy ventilation fan
The bed in our room was too soft for good comfort. Our room was on the 4th floor -- we intentionally chose the top floor so that we wouldn't have noises from the floor above. However, the ventilation fan above our ceiling squeaked and rattled all the time it was running. Although we complained to the front desk clerk each of the first three days we stayed here, it never got fixed. Another annoyance was that we were awakened at 3:30am one morning by people talking in the room next to ours -- it appears that there is little sound insulation in this property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linette Miscommunication corrected
Due a series of miscommunication by the front desk this visit could've turned out to be a nightmare. The hotel manager however took control and made it all right. She credited back the rewards points we used and gave us complimentary dining for the duration of our trip. It turned out to be one of the most relaxing visits ever! Thank you to Rachel, the Manager.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Arkush55 Room clean and comfortable bed
Room was clean and bed comfortable. Front desk staff seemed to have trouble understanding what dates where do be charged on which card. Due to the fact that part was pleasure and part was for business therefore two credit cards were used for different days. Even after explaining several times and the manager had to be called to straiten things out.
This hotel does not have continental breakfast , their is a restaurant on site opened until 10:00 a.m. for breakfast and for dinner only. It is not included with room price it will be an extra cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by resp3211 Good, but poor water pressure this stay
On this visit I recieved a different room and the water pressure was very poor. I was there for three days and showered/bathed at different times throught the day so I know it wasnt due to high use time. However, I still enjoyed the stay.I felt bad I was so tired the first morning that I forgot to tip the waitress when she did a good job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hamakanga Brief Stopover at Santa Maria
We made a brief stopover at Santa Maria on our way from LA to San Francisco with Santa Maria being a good point to break up the trip. BBQ fame helped seal the deal as our hunger was peaking at the time.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms large, clean and in good condition. The BBQ sandwich and locally brewed ale from the in-house restaurant were tasty and well and truly hit the spot.
The guest laundry and in-room kitchen facilities were a bonus.
In all excellent value. Very satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Klimero One night to relax while traveling PCH
We needed to rooms to sleep that night as we were traveling along the PCH. Very great hotel right out the HWY with lots of services and amenities in the hotel and the rooms. The staff was very helpful, courteous and make you feel welcomed. Was a shame that we only had time to stay one night, as the little towns around deserve to be visited.

Room was great and it was commfrotable to make breakfast and lunch in your room. One thing I did not like was that the maids throw away stuff that you place in the sink and also room doors were horrible wrong that maids never bothered to close the door completely. That was my main concerned about This hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin67 Great customer service; horrible internet
The staff was very nice. Rooms were nice size with plenty of ammenities, fridge, stove, microwave, etc. However, no internet service. I contacted IT and they tried many things and she finally said, "Are you at the end of a hallway?" I was actually in an odd corner that provided the end to two separate hallways. She had me step in the hall and then the free WiFi would come on, however, after returning to my room, I once again had no service. This was extremely frustrating and through our stay, there were many times in other areas of the hotel that I could not receive service. IT said they'd re-contact me but they never did, and I remained without internet service in my room the entire stay. Customer service and value at the hotel was great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HJII Too many kids running from floor to floor
The folks at the front desk must have been busy that day as I was not offered anything on check in which is unusual at Holiday Inn. The restaurant staff was extremely slow with two or three wait staff for no more than six tables.
