... s four windmills. A little later, Earl Petersen, a local architect, gave the older buildings a new look, adding facades in so-called "Danish Provincial" style. Buildings in the half-timbered style of Danish rural houses proliferated, creating a new tourist attraction. While much was done to create an "authentic" Danish atmosphere in the town center, it has been pointed out by Scandinavians that fake thatched roofs and artificial timbering ...

We headed in to Lompoc and through it to get to the La Purisima Concepcion Mission. This is on of the Spanish missions built when Spain was trying to convert the Native Americans in the area to Catholicism. This is not actually the original mission. The original mission was founded in 1787 and was ruined in an earthquake. They decided to rebuild though on a ...
... fathers. We sit in the cabin, or on a log at the hangar's entry, and simply gaze out at this or at that, and need only look to one another with a smile to know how worth it it really is already.
That's not to hint at an easy road, of course, and it's not to say that bumps don't lie ahead. Where we thought this sort of plan would be somewhat simple -- you buy a bus, you make a plan, you put in a fridge with beer and you find ...

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.
What a nice hotel! We only stayed there for 1 night but I would definitely stay there again the next time I´m 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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!!
Large rooms, exceptionally clean and furnished. Was surprised at the rate they quoted, the can and should ask for more.
