“Great Blast From The Past Motel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

You simply can not beat the rate for this motel. AAA gets you a better discount as well. Try and remember your card because they do ask. The place is clean and convenient. Check in was really pleasant. We took the advice of the owner and went to the Italian restaurant next door and it was great! So nice to be able to just walk right there. There were a few other people staying at the Melody that come back every year when they tour the local wineries. There's a small pool for the kiddos or if you want to have a splash. I would definitely stay here again.

spent 4 days over the 4th here, great times around Paso, et al. Frank the owner takes good care of te property, and the rates are great. a trip back to simpler times when compfort meant comfortable not glitzy, not fancy, just homey. even has RTV channel for us old timers, channel 13. relax enjoy and take a walk in the evenings, best place to get away. without paying too much.

Room Tip: don't stay next to the laundry room

We were greeted by a lovely lady who was polite and very friendly, the property is well looked after and maintained, the rooms are in a time capsule of the 60's and this is refreshing in this time of uniform motel chains. The beds are so comfortable (up there with the Wardolf Astoria) and the rooms are so well presented.
We like it here so much we stayed another night, spent the day by the pool, in this busy and hectic world we live in today this is a great place to escape.Highly recomend you come and stay here when in Paso Robles

It was like stepping back into the 70's or maybe even the 50's. All that was missing were the metal motel chairs sitting out in front of the rooms. The TV was a tube model and the rooms look as if they haven't been redecorated in decades but the place was immaculately clean, the beds comfortable and the owners friendly and helpful. Not for everyone but, for those who can look for something beyond glitz, it was a real find and value.

I'm surprised that I haven't written a review for this gem. My wife and I have been staying here for many years, especially during the May Wine Festival. We have a standing reservation, as the place is always booked during the Festival many month's in advance. The motel is clean and comfortable, and is a great value. Convenient? It's right across from the park and the center of town, with a great Italian restaurant right next door (Buona Tavola).

It's nice to drive in the parking lot and have the owner greet you by name. Internet is free, BTW. Small motels offer this service that the large chains charge for.

Once again I sit here trying to find the right words about Melody Ranch. Since I was 6 years old I can recall coming to Paso to visit family and staying at Melody. Thru the years the tradition of staying at melody ranch has carried on. My mom love coming to Paso to just visit with the family that owned the motel, and to this day it is still family owned and operated. I am almost 40 years old and wouldn't break the tradition my family started 34 years ago! I love the location, love privacy, love the people and love the fact I am family when I walk thru that front door and hear "Welcome to Melody Ranch...How are you?" No matter how old I get I will FOREVER hold melody ranch in my heart. Thank you Melody Ranch!! Not just for the awesome memories but the welcoming feel of "coming home" everytime my family visits! See you in a few weeks!!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are nice. I would like to add, that no matter the room it's very quite

Stayed a couple of nights here at Melody Ranch Motel as our budget hotel had no vacant. I was surprised of how quiet and nice is was, and was about $10 cheaper than the motel I usually stay in. I will make this motel my first choice the next time i'm in Paso Robles.
