My daughter and I spent our birthday weekend at Desparado Inn and shared the large Butch Cassidy room. The home is clean & comfortable situated on a knoll overlooking golden hills and green vineyards. Tom created a relaxing ambiance, shared his knowledge of the local wineries and his breakfasts were simple, tasty, creative fare. This place is exactly what we... More

Desperado Inn is the real wine country experience! From the breathtaking view overlooking the vineyards to the relaxing music that plays overhead while you relax with a glass of wine on the patio to the delicious, homemade breakfast that the owner, Tom, makes every morning ... This should be your destination when visiting Paso Robles. Tom is the perfect host... More

this location needs a lot of work. the view is nice, location is fine, but the property is not in good shape. we spend a lot of time in this area, and this is the worst place we have experienced. the woman who made breakfast was focusing on caring for the host who had just had surgery, to top it...

Stayed in The Butch Cassidy Room and it was lovely and very comfortable! The house is truly amazing inside and out! Mr. Rigby made two amazing breakfasts for everyone. If you are in a hurry to get fed before you have plans for the day, you need to let him know as it is a very laid back atmosphere and... More

Stayed here a couple nights as we attended the Oyster festival in Avila beach and the pinot and paella festival in Templeton. Very clean and quiet. Good sized room, however, no way to adjust room thermostat. Just a few miles from restaurants and wineries making it a convenient place to stay. Tom the proprietor makes a lovely breakfast with local... More

Overall, we were very comfortable staying here. We found the owner, Tom, to be gracious and pleasant - we liked him very much. This property has beautiful views and it is quiet. However, we felt the accommodations were a bit shabby. We stayed in Katchina. The bedframe was cheap and squeaky; however, the bed itself was comfortable. There were only... More

Should have read reviews before making reservation. We have been to at least 40 to 50 B&Bs and this was the worst one ever. Owner did not answer door when we arrived, tried calling both numbers and no one answered. Drove around for half an hour, drove back and called and he finally answered phone. Was at Inn whole time.... More

I travelled with my husband and 2 friends to the Desperado Inn and we really had no complaints. The property is located in a very quiet area and quite high up allowing for some spectacular views. Tom was really friendly and joined us for his homemade gourmet breakfasts. There is no TV as such in the rooms as he doesnt... More

My husband and I will be celebrating our 14th year anniversary this end of May. We thought this would be a great place to just relax and get away. My husband called and made a reservation on April 17th and spoke to Tom who was initially "pleasant". We paid for two nights. The following day, we saw lots of negative... More

Wonderful serene property, accommodations welcoming and private. The view from the Desperato Inn is absolutely amazing if you are looking for a relaxed getaway that is far enough away from it all yet a hop jump and a skip away from town this is the place for you. Tom is the perfect host, he has multi talents, he has wonderful... More
