Excellent management and staff. Beautiful and clean hotel. Great breakfast, beautiful rooms, super comfortable bed. Love the amenities such as internet access, refrigerator and microwave. Great to have access to a fitness center. Long time visitor and will go back again and again.

very clean, very good service and a good location. near the zoo which was fun, near some beautiful movie theaters, and Pismo Beach and quite a few great eating places. My friend enjoyed it just as much as I did and we both agreed we will be back.

I stayed there this summer and had a great time. I had a room with patio doors straight out to the pool and it was brilliant. The gym next door has a glorious outside swimming pool. They provide a good value breakfast and all staff are very helpful.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a patio door room on the ground floor

I agree that the Colony Inn is a basic Best Western hotel. The bed and pillows weren't as comfortable, nor the breakfast as nice, as the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Paso down the road where we stayed another time. Breakfast was not a pleasant experience. The food was mediocre and it was served in a very narrow corridor that got quite crowded when people were trying to get their food. The hotel should at least ask the maids not to use the breakfast corridor during the breakfast hours, and certainly not to push their big wheeled baskets full of linens between the breakfast tables where people are eating and the counter where the food is served.

I've stayed here before and would definitely stay here again. The rates seem to double on the weekends though (same with the other hotels in Atascadero) so if you can manage a mid-week visit you'll save a bundle. Convenient to Cambria, Paso Robles and the whole area is full of wineries and tasting rooms. Friendly front desk staff and a cookie upon arrival.

The Colony Inn is your basic Best Western hotel/motel. Everything was neat and clean, and the staff is cordial.
The room includes a fridge and microwave, and the wifi worked fine with no dropouts.
Breakfast is standard fare with a nice presentation.
Not fancy, but a comfortable stay and recommended.

Our stay was for 4 days, on a brisk November weekend (We've stayed here several times over the years.). The room is large with a nice desk, office chair, a comfortable arm chair/ottoman combo, nice king size bed. There were plenty of pillows. The room was very quiet and had a "homey" feel to it. The Colony Inn staff is very friendly and helpful. They look up phone numbers for you and provide a "cheat sheet" of all the amenties provided when you check-in. The lobby is very attractive with comfortable, well decorated seating areas. The local paper does not publish on weekends and they provided US Today as well as a copy of the New York Times for guests. The buffet breakfast had lots of fresh fruit, including watermelon slices, the usual breads and a waffle maker, scrambled egg and meat (alternating bacon and sausage). There's lots of cold cereals, yogurt, milk, juice as well as condiments (peanut butter, jam, cream cheese, butter, etc). We usually get a quick breakfast and grab a piece of fruit for a mid-morning snack. Instead of a small exercise room, you get a pass to use the full sized, large gym (Kennedy) next door. We had no time to do this, this trip. In the past, this was an awesome place to workout. The outside was well landscaped and maintained. For this part of the Central Coast, this Inn is quite nice and comfortable. We've stayed at several other hotels in the area over the years and are quite willing to pay a little extra for the cleaner, more comfortable (and safer) rooms and property at this location. The Inn is a bit away from the freeway exit, along a nice tree lined street, and the driveway slopes downward towards the hotel. Be careful to look for their sign!

Room Tip: Mid-week, the room rate drops quite a bit, with weekends being much more expensive. While there were...
