I am extending a business trip to travel the central CA coast. Melody Ranch Motel is a friendly, quaint, old-school, very clean, very well maintained, safe, and very comfortable motel with well chosen updates (windows, A/C, mattress). It is within walking distance of "downtown" Paso and 30+ great delis, restaurants, shops, bars, etc. I recommend that you bring a power... More

Nice traditional motel in a good location in Paso Robles. Efficient reception service, good spacious room and wonderful, yellow-tiled retro bathroom! Everything clean and well-presented. Good place to stay for a couple of nights

I have been staying at his motel for nearly 15 years. The owners are very nice people and aim to please their customers. The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable for me. The price is very reasonable. I highly recommend this motel. It is across the street from our favorite restaurant in town the "Dragon Palace Buffet". The... More

We stayed here July 6th while cruising around California's Central Valley and Coast. This place is your quintessential motel from the 50's and 60's. Clean and as inexpensive as you'll get in Paso. Staff friendly and helpful. Cute pool too! Bed was on the firm side and tv small but great value for being downtown. You can walk to the... More

We've stayed at the Melody Ranch six times in the past several years in get away trips up and down the state. We try to make Paso a stop in all our travels and this motel is the place to stay in Paso. It's old, it's been used, it has character. If you're looking for squeaky new high-tech you won't... More

My husband and I stayed here truly based off other reviewers. This is motel is located within walking distance of downtown. There is a pool on site. This hotel was clean and reminded my of growing up in the 60's so if you are looking for an updated hotel--this isn't the place. The front desk was very pleasant. We would... More

Our travels brought us from Yosemite to Paso Robles and it's well worth the stay. Melody Ranch Motel is a right out of the 1960's. But this little jewel is well taken care of by Frank Fritschle and his parents would be proud. The room was clean, shower hot, the price was great, and Frank even provided a small refrigerator...

It's a flash back to a 60's motel but VERY clean and pleasant. We were very happy with our stay and you cannot beat the price. Great location. Walking distance to downtown and many good restaurants near by.
