Historic Santa Maria Inn

Marilyn slept here.
I am a sucker for old Hollywood. The emotive glamor of the screen stars of Hollywood's golden age never seizes to enchant and impress me. So, when I arrived at the Santa Maria Inn and saw the names of Hollywood icons like Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson, Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe displayed on the doors of the rooms where they'd stayed, I was absolutely thrilled. Also, the hotel is situated in an ideal location (just off of HWY 101) for visiting/touring the Santa Ynez/Barbara Wine Valley, which is a wonderful wine region in California.
