Whether you are traveling on business or traveling for pleasure the Best Western PLUS Big America hotel in Santa Maria , California has something to offer for everyone. Located between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo , the Big America hotel in Santa Maria offers its guests many luxuries for an affordable price. Join us in our lobby every morning for a complimentary, deluxe continental breakfast, and while you are eating your breakfast help yourself to a couple of complimentary newspapers.Our Santa Maria hotel rooms have been called by many “the best hotel rooms in Santa Maria ” because of the size of the rooms and the cleanliness of the rooms. Each of our Santa Maria hotel rooms contains a mini refrigerator, microwave, iron and ironing board, coffee maker, cable TV, air conditioning, wet bar, voice mail, and each room is equipped for High Speed Internet Access, both hard wired and wireless. Santa Maria is known for its Santa Maria style barbecue and the Big America hotel is close to many fine restaurants, and the meals they usually serve are big, so there are bound to be leftovers. We also have a restaurant located on the premises, which is called Francisco's Country Kitchen. We keep on hearing good things about the food, so why not give it a try. The microwave and mini refrigerator would come in really handy if you are looking for a midnight snack.Our Santa Maria hotel has rooms that can accommodate just about anyone.

Thank You for staying with usfabby90502! We are so sad to see you didn't thoroughly enjoy your stay with us. We do hope that you let us know at the front desk about any issues that we can amend to make your next visit better! I did want to let you know that we do have an elevator, it is located near our lobby. Also, we don't put trash bags in the trash cans due to a Law that was passed to lower the plastic use in our County. We do hope you'll choose to stay with us again in the future!

Hotel's Favourite
Outside of the hot tub, which never works and I have been coming here for years, most things work fine-- great WiFi, hot water, lots of water pressure, multiple cable TVs, heating and AC, etc. The King Size with the extra room is the best deal in the area (if a couple can sleep on the pull out soft and another couple on the King bed, two couples can have their own rooms for around $100. Thats unbeatable!). Both the front and rear windows open, which allows air flow which is SUPER important to me. Also means there is a rear exit in case of emergency, if on first floor anyways. Liquor store, Starbucks, 7-11, Taco Bell, Burger King, Pizza and much more is all within walking distance. BBQ grill works great. Last, pool is never heated (gets plenty of sun though) and as stated hot tub never works.

Thank You for Kendall D for staying with usand for taking the time to leave this glowing review! We are so glad to see you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us from start to finish. We are sorry that the pool was not heated to a temperature you would like, we keep it around 83 degrees so it is still refreshing during super warm days. As for the spa, it has been closed due to Covid recommendations but it up and running soon so hopefully during your next visit you can jump in the pool to cool off then soak up the warmth from the spa! We do hope that during your next stay you'll get the chance to enjoy some of our amenities such as the fitness center and our full buffet breakfast! Come back again soon!

From check in to check out everything was great. The staff were extremely courteous, friendly, and helpful. The location was good. Really enjoyed the layout of our room. It was a first floor room with a king bed

The room has TV, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, study desk, lounge chair, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There is a separate sink for the coffee maker. There is a separate sitting area in the bathroom for those who need to apply make-up. This "stall" has extra mirrors and lighting. The place is well kept with no signs of wear and tear. Upon walking in, the room is very clean. I would come back again if I am in the area. It was a short drive off of Highway 101.
