I purchased this stay through living social prior to reading the reviews, so we went with low expectations. We arrived at 4pm and was greeted by Tom...(I think we woke him up from a nap). Luckily our room had its own private entry and our stay was what we expected by the previous review. Tom was pleasant and hospitable. However,... More

The reviews are pretty accurate in the sense that this place is beautiful but the inn-keeper is not a typical innkeeper. It makes for an interesting experience that you will remember for years. Yes, if you want a good story to tell at dinner parties- go for the experience. Here are some suggestions to make your stay a bit more... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our weekend. Lots of wineries close by. One is walk next door. Wine tour picked us up at this country B&B for our day tour. The owner was very helpful and informative about area, places to visit, eat and history of the region.

My wife and I booked the Desperado Inn through an Amazon Local deal - didn't read the reviews beforehand. People seem to either love or hate this place, and love or hate the proprietor. It was our first B&B experience, so we had no preconceptions about what a stay should entail. The hotel is in a great location. It's about... More

Terribly mid-represented on their website. Awful communication by owner/manager, ants in bathroom, sink falling off wall, early morning light and evening door light pour into room to make sleeping difficult, curtain tie-back falling off wall, small flat-screen TV on bureau not mounted on wall and bracket on back was broken. Wine served at evening wine tasting was cheap, bad wine... More

I received a Living Social voucher for a weekend stay here as a birthday gift. My husband and I decided to use it for our anniversary celebration. The town of Paso Robles was wonderful and we will definitely return, but we will never stay at the Desperado again. When I contacted Mr. Rigby to make our reservation, he requested my... More

We just got home from a teriffic weekend at the Desparado Inn, Paso Robles. We chose to meet long time friends there because it was half way for each of us. First of all the inn is in a beautiful setting just outside of "town", maybe 20 minutes from the freeway. Close to several winerys. The accomodations were more then... More

The pictures look much better than the actual place The rooms were run down, broken blinds, cobwebs and spiders. The worst was, the owner left for the evening so we did not have the use of the main house to get movies, ice, use the fridge for our own leftovers. It was a hot weekend, and there was no air...

If you are looking for everything to be cookie-cutter perfect, choose a chain hotel. If you are looking for a lovely, quiet Bed & Breakfast, with its own quirky individuality - choose Desperado Inn! We recently spent a weekend here, and had a very good time. We wanted peace & quiet, and to not be bothered by others, and that's... More

This is the worst experience I have ever had in a "B&B". Tom, the owner, is non-communicative unless he wants money or he is complaining about having to spend money. There are little notes all around about what you CAN'T DO, nothing about how to make you comfortable or even welcome. It is extremely unfortunate because the property is nice... More
