Santa Maria--The Santa Maria Inn is a registered Historic Landmark which was built in 1917. Recently restored to the style of an old English country inn, old palm and magnolia trees directly in front of the Entrance are reminders of the Inn’s floral heritage. 

Frank J. McCoy, who came to the Valley in 1904 to work for the new Union Sugar plant, saw that a comfortable hotel was needed, and proceeded to build the Santa Maria Inn. His love of flowers can still be seen throughout the Inn such as the award-winning Rose Garden, which to this day contains some of his original plantings and has become the favored backdrop for weddings. The Patio, which hosted McCoyy’s first flower gardens, is now a quiet retreat with its antique water fountain and brick courtyard. The Inn’s famous daily floral arrangements of years past have been immortalized in the beautiful stained glass windows. 


Presidents, ambassadors, actors and actresses, and corporate magnates stopped here while winding their way along California’s historic El Camino Real between San Francisco and Los Angeles--first via buggy, later by motorcars. Whatever the mode of transportation, in the Grand Old Days or yesterday, road weary travelers have come to the Santa Maria Inn to rest and refresh.
