We just returned from a 2 night stay at Desperado Inn. We stayed in the desperado room. The heating was not working properly and it was very cold. Tom was not around when we arrived and just found the key in the door. The next morning Tom explained he just installed solar, which might have something to do with that.... More

This was one of the most horrible experiences we have ever had. The owners were in Europe and manager they had in place never showed up to give us our room. We spent 3 hours waiting around. The place looked deserted and run down. No one showed up or return our numerous voice mails. We ended up having to book... More

So I purchased a Groupon offer and once I contacted the owner Tom he went on about how Groupon did not work out for him as a business owner. ( from the first time I spoke to him on the phone, via text, and during our stay) As a guest this was not a first great impression, I felt like... More

We really wanted to have a good experience here. Tom was very friendly on the phone, and we looked forward to a good time. Unfortunately, the inn has not been kept up as it should. We had hoped to use the pool on those hot days, but the water was not only dirty and in need of cleaning, it also... More

We booked it based on the gorgeous pictures and description on the website. Anyhow, the condition of the hotel isn’t as quite as described. Cons • The main concern I have is the lack of privacy. The middle section of the door is semitransparent and the bed is just next to it. The sunlight also came in the morning and... More

Very nice B&B in vineyard country close to Paso Robles. Lots of wildlife. Nice rooms and very relaxing. Nice breakfast by the owner and wine tours by Rolks Royce if you are so inclined. All in all a relaxing and pleasant experience.

A bit out of the way, but a pleasant drive through the rolling hills of the east side. The B&B is on a hill with great views. We stayed in one of the larger rooms off the main house. It was comfortable and very quiet. The breakfast and conversation with the owner were most enjoyable. A good value.

Loved this quaint bed and breakfast. Haven't been to paso Robles for awhile and wanted a cute place to revisit the SLO area. The rooms were comfortable. The view is outstanding and the breakfasts were first class. Tom, the owner, is friendly and I love his stories. We will be back!

I waited a week before writing this review. I wanted to like this place, had seen mixed reviews and was hoping I could overlook some of the negative comments, without being rude, or disrespectful to the owner, this place truly needs a lot of work. It is very outdated. We paid (quite a lot in my opinion) for 2 nights... More

It is indeed unfortunate that you choose to to save your responses until weeks after your stay here. You were asked if you enjoyed your stay and encouraged to give us feedback but instead you chose not to. It always amazes me how some people embellish their negativity to make themselves feel justified for trying to bring other people down,... More
