Historic Santa Maria Inn
amazing hotel steeped in history
Amazing property with so much history. We were in the original part of the hotel across the corridor from themed rooms that had been occupied by many famous people such as Lee Marvin, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, James Stewart & Kiefer Sutherland to say the least.Worth a stay for this reason alone. The rest was better than expected with facilities second to none. & the grounds were exceptional. I can only say that if you are in the area, a stay at this hotel is a must.

A Gem!
This hotel was the best we have stayed in during our trip. All areas get 5 stars, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. We will definitely return again.

Dated and in need of significant improvements
The hotel could be great but is old and tired. The carpets give off a musty smell that makes the experience of staying there one of being in a building that has had its time and suffered a little bit of neglect. My analogy of the room was that it was clean, functional but reminded me of a room from 30 years ago that had not been updated or modernised since, a shame really after all of the great review I had read. It doesn't need transformation as that would destroy some of the character but it could do with some significant TLC (and new carpets)
