    Good value for the price
    It's my second stay at this hotel. It's a nice, historic building that must have been amazing back in the days. These days it has certainly seen some wear and tear but it is still kept clean and neat and is good value for the price offered. It's also located in the heart of Santa Maria with some restaurants and bars in walking distance just across the street.

    Historic should not mean rundown
    The lobby and hallways smell musty and the front desk clerk could barely smile. They provided incomplete WiFi information at check-in, the smoke alarm in my room went off during my stay. The tv, coffee and microwave are all Plugged into a power strip, which was not turned on, so I needed to move the entire shelving unit to find out why nothing worked. Overall terrible experience

    Don’t stay here!
    Room was small, lamp wasn’t working by my bed, took 3 hrs and 2 notifications for them to replace a lightbulb. Bathroom was extremely dated and didn’t feel clean. Room had a musty odor. Would not ever stay here again.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Always clean at a great price.
    I always try to stay here. The only recommendation I have is to add somewhere to plug your charger in for your electronics near the bed. It’s difficult to reach the socket behind the bed, but it’s not that big of a deal.

    Lovely hotel and amenities. Our room was too far from elevator, though can't be helped on busy weekend, I'm sure.
