We stayed overnight here and that was just about enough. For me, I can't see staying more than a night or two. The room was large and comfortable. We parked just outside our room which was nice. Although, there is an in-room coffee maker, we were only provided two packs of decaf. There was no in-room safe. The thermostat seemed to go no lower than 68, so the night was uncomfortably warm. I wrestled with opening the old and rusty window. Breakfast was included which I appreciate. The breakfast was fine, but they have it set up in a hallway so it got very crowded. I suggest going early to eat. I just don't feel we got reasonable value for what we paid. As we left, and drove north on the 101, we passed a Motel 6 which flashed its room rate. It was half of what we paid and I wished we had stayed there. Bottom line: not a bad place at all. Just over priced for what we got.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit with us. I am sorry about there not being enough in room coffee in your room, that is unacceptable. I will speak to our team in regards to this.

As for our thermostats, they do not go lower than 68 degrees, due to our green standards. We do our best to regulate our energy usage, so we remain green rated. I know this doesn't help now, but we do have an oscillating fan that is available to borrow.

We are aware of our breakfast area being in an awkward setup. We are looking to renovate our breakfast area in the next couple of years.

We are reasonably priced for our value and the location of our hotel. This time of year is still considered our peak season. We have many lovely events going on weekly that make October and the beginning of November an exciting time to visit. For the future, we do offer online specials and promotions.

I really appreciate all your valuable feedback. I will utilize your input for the future.

I do hope that you will give us another chance to serve you.


Sincerely,


Robin Ewing

Was very pleased with this hotel. I loved that they had a shower vs. a bathtub shower. The breakfast was pretty good but it's very disorganized. Get to it early before the crowd. I would stay here again next time I go to Paso Robles. Paso has the best wine tasting of any area I have ever been.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. I am happy to see you enjoyed your time with us. We are aware that the breakfast is not in a great location. We are hoping to build a new location within the next two years. You had a poolside room, which has a really nice three headed shower. Only our pool rooms have this great accommodation, so make sure if you get to stay with us again that you request that room type.

Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,

This was a perfect location to finish our Wine Tasting during the day in the Paso/Templeton areas. Would stay here again, staff was great and location very quiet. The Breakfast room is small although the guests come and go very quickly and the staff in attendance was very helpful. The only thing that looked like it was being repaired was the waterfall and bridge area. This is a Great Place.

We selected this BW based on location. Very comfortable and a good value. Good breakfast, close to highway, minutes from the wineries - quiet; comfortable bed, friendly staff. 20 minutes from SLO and about 10 minutes to South wineries - will stay here again...

This hotel should be rated a PLUS...PLUS! The front desk staff were terrific. Answered all our questions and provided excellent customer service. They went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. The room size is larger than most standard Best Western hotels. You can see that the hotel owner has invested a considerable amount to upgrade its facilities. This is a great place to stay and close to all local attractions. CA SR 1 is a breath-taking adventure and would highly recommend it to all visitors.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor for easy access
