    Historical Traveler Reviews O'Cairns Inn & Suites Lompoc



    I stay there for 5 months. Gene and his staff are the best. I work for NexusIS and we worked on the LUSD project. Great sevice always there to meet your needs.

    miss them.

    What a nice hotel! We only stayed there for 1 night but I would definitely stay there again the next time Im in this area. Very friendly staff, very good breakfast (with a huge choice of danish, muffins, bagels, toast, fruits, cereals, oatmeal, coffee/cocoa/tea/juice, cereal-bars, eggs ...), nice pool area, great spacious rooms with THE most comfortable beds EVER and equipped with a BIG refrigerator, microwave and TV. We were very satisfied and would definitely recommend it to anyone on his way to/from L.A. - SFO!

    The Best


    I stayed at the O'Cains Inn with my daughters and found the rooms large, the beds comfortable, the furniture beautiful. The rooms were VERY clean and the staff friendly! The flowers surrounding the property are just gorgeous! I would definitely come back the next time I am up in Lompoc. Gene Baker and his assistant, Sherry are wonderful people. Definitely go and see for yourself!

    June tour visits 'Best Western OCairns'


    We stopped here for 1 night on 11th June 05 as we were passing through. It's pretty much what you'd expect to get at one of these roadside motels (the road isn't noisy). Usual paper thin walls, but it was a quiet hotel in general and we weren't disturbed.

    We had a standard room which was of a good size with modern furniture in good condition. It was a new looking complex, easy to find and well equipped. Room included microwave, TV, video, coffee maker, heater, fridge.

    Breakfast was a few chairs in the main lobby, you would think it wouldn't work very well but it did when we were there. There were only a few visitors at a time for breakfast. The food was simple but good quality and plenty to go around, served buffet style.

    Ok for 1 night and would stay again on that basis but only if the price was right.

    To put our review into context, this was part of our June tour of California and New York that included the following hotels, also reviewed on tripadvisor.

    Sofitel - Los Angeles, Best Western O'cairns - Lompoc, Travel Lodge Monterey Bay, Serrano - San Francisco, Wuksachi Lodge - Sequoia Nat park, Yosemite View Lodge - Yosemite Nat park, Furnace Creek Ranch - Deach Valley, Aladdin - Las Vegas, UN Millennium Plaza - New York

    Great Hotel, good rate


    One of the best Best Western properties. Everything was fine with my stay. Large, clean room with nice furniture. Exceptionally clean and lovely pool area, very warm and friendly front desk staff. I left a letter at the front desk for my friends who were staying a few days after my departure and my friends told me that they were given the letter immediately at check-in. They, too, shared my positive experience about this hotel.

    A very good experience


    We agree with the positive reviews of this motel. It deserves it's 3 star rating. We also liked the 1950's feel of Lompoc.

    Best Value in Lompoc


    I am tempted to list this motel as "bad" in order to keep people away so I can be sure to get a room but can't. I stayed at most motels in Gallup due to my business at VAFB. None can compare with the value, service, rooms and staff of the Best Western, Their High Speed Internet Access is the best I have witnessed. The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to be of service. The manager takes the effort to meet you and actuallly asks what he can do to improve the hotel and service. The furnishing are exceptional.

    This hotel goes out of its way to keep guests coming back and one of the few that I know that spends money in keeping the place up to par.

    Highly recommended


    Stayed in a suite July 9 - 12, 2004. Found the rooms to be very clean and spacious. Did not get the two extra pillows requested on the first day as I was told that they are out. However, did get them for the next two nights. The ladies managing the front desk are more friendly than the gentleman who checked me in the first day. Pool was well managed, and free continental breakfast was pretty good too. Laundary wise found only one machine for the whole complex a little inadequate. Overall, a great place for families to stay. Good rates too.

    Horrible Experience at O'Cairns Inn


    First of all, I booked a room at this hotel through Best Western's website. When the room I was assigned was lacking some important ammenities I was promised upon booking (the most important of which was DSL access necessary to conduct the business I was traveling for), I requested a room change. The hotel was supposedly booked, so I politely asked if my prepayment for the evening could be refunded, since neither my bed nor bathroom had been used, so that I could look for another hotel. Well, here comes Gene Baker, the hotel manager. Before I could explain my reasons, he began raising his voice and using foul language, saying, in short, that he wouldn't give me a refund. After storming to my room, he proceeded to throw my bags out of the door and push me (I'm a female and was traveling alone). To make a long story short, the police came and filed a report, but I never received a refund or an apology from either the O'Cairns Inn or Best Western...I have absolutely no idea why they would let this guy manage one of their hotels. Beware of O'Cairns and Gene Baker!!

    Best value


    Large rooms, exceptionally clean and furnished. Was surprised at the rate they quoted, the can and should ask for more.

    ... to squeeze 3 into the back and one onto the backseat. Ryan drove the first stint & we followed Maurice onto the freeway, he turned off and we kept going. We realised at this stage that our GPS navigation system was a dud; it wouldn't turn on, the charging port to go into the 12v car charger was broken, and there was no attachment to connect to the dash or windscreen. So we drove on & stopped in at San Luis Obispo Avis to get a new GPS.. Who thought this ...

    With an inland and mostly agricultural route ahead, it was a day we just had to get through but ultimately the scenery was a lot better than we thought. And supposedly this contained the last big climb of the tour - heard that before.

After getting out of Pismo and avoiding the campground we were soon ...

    ... full swing here and there are pickers in most of the fields.

    Our first stop was the tasting room at Rancho Sisquoc Winery. We enjoyed 5 tastings for $8.00 and got to keep the wine glass. It was an informal, quiet setting and the ladies who poured were friendly and helpful when we asked where we might find olive oils and flavored vinegars. We drink a lot of red wine, but enjoyed their white wines the best….bought a Reisling ...
