“Worst Place Ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2010

This is a place to definitely NOT go. Just because it has a fancy name does NOT mean it is a fancy place to stay. Despite reading all the previous reviews, we still ended up there.

Upon arriving, it did look rather 'shabby' but we thought we'd give it a shot. But by 2am we were out the door and onto a Holiday Inn Express. And what got us out of the place were the BUGS in the bed. In the two beds there were at least bugs each in them. I'm sorry, the cleaning staff had to know there were bugs there, they weren't tiny things, big enough to be seen.

PLEASE, take this into consideration when going there... bugs do NOT belong in a bed!

The outside of this dive motel looks much more charming in photographs than in real life. The room (#7) was so disgusting! There was blood and other bodily fluids on the comforters, no matress pads on the beds, the carpet was filthy with debris like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks, the toilet tank was coming out of the wall with plaster coming off in chunks, the towels were dirty, the shower mildewed, holes in the walls, questionable substance in the toilet. We immediately went back to the office to complain and they insisted the room had been cleaned. They refused to give us a refund and we asked to talk to the owner, who they called. The owner refused to talk to us and refused to give us a refund. I've stayed in $5 hostels in third world countries that were MUCH nicer than this! Thank god our friends who were staying in the beautiful Paso Robles Inn got a free upgrade to a suite so we high tailed it over there and shared their suite! I paid with American Express and have filed a dispute so hopefully I will get my refund.

My wife and I and friends made reservations despite the reviews: BIG mistake!

When we got there we found this wrong between the two room:
non-smoking room smelled like smoke (a lot)
graffiti on the wall
dead cockroach in bathroom
cereal under the bed
and, wait, wait

an almost empty bag of meth under the mattress.

After we decided not to stay there for obvious reasons, Suzie, the front desk lady, who was very friendly, credited our credit cards and we thought all was well. Unfortunately, she or the owner charged our credit card the next day as we had not cancelled 24hrs. in advance. Our credit card informed us that this qualifies as a fradulent charge and were are disputing the charge.

Stay at your own risk!

My room when I stayed there with my friend was VERY, VERY nice. Had no problems at all, room was very clean & smelled very good. The front desk clerk was very nice & helpful for places to go and eat & places to see while there visiting. Which was nice, seeing that I'm not from around that area.. :) :) Nothing was wrong with anything in our room, everything worked GREATTTTT.. I would recommend this hotel to anyone of my friends to stay there & I'd go back there again. The location that it is in is out on the other side of town, but that was nice also.. cause it was peaceful to US....

It was a real bargain during Wine Festival Weekend. Our room (right across from the office) was very clean.with plenty of room The owner was helpful, even provided cups for the wine we purchased.. The buildings and the neighborhood were old but not "seedy". We'd go there again

This hotel is absolutely awful There was graffiti on the walls INSIDE the room, chewed chewing gum stuck to the side of the nightstand and BUGS in the bed!!! The bathroom was covered with mold and the room was filthy, seriously filthy. Not sure if it has been cleaned this century. We left the hotel at 5am after discovering the bugs crawling all over us and the manager refunded our money only after yelling at us for a few minutes. The location wasn't very good either, in a bad neighborhood. The worst hotel experience I have ever had. Disugusting. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere else. It's not worth it.

It does not state anywhere online that their cancellation policy is 48 Hours Prior to check in date so hows that possible if you book a room the day before and then get there and go oh my gosh im not staying at this place in this neighborhood and find out your screwed. Better off staying at a chain hotel or one of the nicer ones in town for the extra dollars and more welcoming stay. Was so bad I was there 5 minutes and now im fighting to get my money back. Also a different rate was charged. Just bad business. Paso Robles Inn is a far more enjoyable place to stay and experince this little town.
