    Loved this beautiful historic hotel

    The staff were so friendly and they like big dogs (yay!). The food here was DELISH, and the historic pictures and old phone booths and carved wood and mirror decor throughout the hotel were cool. Lots of famous Old Hollywood stars stayed here and you can see their pictures on the wall. Felt like I got to be somewhere special with mom and dad rather than just plain or fancy. Plus the restaurant sign says "Old English Tavern," so as an Old English Sheepdog I loved that.

    Very nice

    Great room, location was central. Several nearby places to eat. Park and neighborhood nearby that you can walk your dog on. Very dog friendly.

    Super fun experience in gorgeous historic hotel

    We LOVED our stay at Historia Santa Maria Inn. Everyone was friendly & welcoming. Our room (the Joan Crawford room) was huge & easy access to an outside garden area for the pooch. We will definitely go back again!!

    Nice historic hotel.

    The hotel is old, but has nice historic character. They are dog friendly, with a courtyard complete with extra bags if needed.

    Super casual for dogs

    Cool old bldg that needs lots of deferred maintenance. I don't mind old and even dated, but it's a little dingy. However, restaurant was surprisingly excellent. Pool is lovely (tho way too many in it during covid). Staff was wonderful overall and especially with dog. That also means that leashes were not enforced, dog was allowed at pool , etc. Great for me, but I'd rather pay $150 instead of 119 and know the windows were clean, operable, walkways were power-washed, etc. Little things. But I'd stay again in the same situation (3 week road trip partly camping and just wanted to sit and read by the pool).

    A surprising gem!

    We were traveling up the Pacific Coast Highway and made a one night stop in Santa Maria on our way to Monterey. The Santa Maria was listed as very pet friendly, so I booked it without expectations. Boy was I surprised! Our room was huge! Plenty of room for the dog's kennel. The beds were so comfortable. The historic decor of the hotel was beautiful. They had a full restaurant and bar. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone, whether they are traveling with pets or not.
