From the moment we arrived to John's very warm welcome, to the great breakfasts, the afternoon cookies in the lobby lounge, the outdoor fireplaces and a gorgeous guest room, we were impressed! The hotel is small, charming and a wonderful place to be. The rooms are tastefully decorated with large comfy king beds. Even the "do not disturb" sign is unique; it's a horsehair hanger! Hotel Cheval is expensive but it's worth every penny. Also, the town of Paso Robles is a quaint little town with great boutiques and the 2 days we were there, weren't enough. We shall return!!!
