We get spoiled easy; We could hardly watch their lousy “standard definition”, SDTV. The rate was $110us/ $151c. A little above average for our month long road trip down and back up the coast.

Paso Robles is a neat town that makes some of the best wines in California, IMO. After we got checked into the motel we went out for a lovely Thai dinner at Basil Thai, downtown Paso Robles. See separate review!

The Melody Ranch Motel is a charming, vintage and affordably priced motel. It is centrally located on Spring St in old Paso Robles. This nostalgic motel was built in the late 50s and is very well maintained. There is a small out door swimming pool to entertaining the kids. Our room and toilet was clean and comfortable. The mattress to our beds were firm. There was a coffee maker, small frig and an air conditioner in our room. We booked our one night thru Booking.com and the price for a Friday night was just over $100.00 with tax. There are many nearby restaurants and entertainment options i.e. fine dining, shopping and a movie theater all within walking distant. The manager Frank was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to visit and where to dine.

Room tip: This is a one story structure with parking located in front of your room.

We stay here every three months or so. Paso Robles is an easy drive from our home. So we visit as often as we can.

Melody Ranch is a nice, clean, friendly place within walking distance of every downtown Paso wine tasting room. What's not to love?

Our strategy is to drive around Paso -- visit two or three new wineries. And then return home, offload our treasure and walk around town, visiting more tasting rooms.

The proprietors know us by name and are always there to try to make special requests happen. We haven't had a bad night here.

And my wife just loves the gigantic oak tree growing on property. I think she's secretly a druid.

My friend and I were booked for a 3 night stay in early April. Upon arrival the hotel was not able to complete the check in process because their card reader was not communicating with the bank so they gave us our room keys and told us to come back later. We unloaded our belongings into our room, closed the windows which were wide open, and promptly went out to get dinner and walk around town. Upon returning to the hotel, we unlocked our room and when we entered we were immediately hit with an overpowering smell of natural gas from the heater. The smell was strong enough to signal a high concentration of natural gas in the air and both my friend and I started getting headaches from it almost immediately. We went straight to the front office to bring the situation to their attention and the staff member who was working proceeded to light a match in a room filled with the smell of gas in order to re-light the pilot light that had gone out on the heater that is as old as the building. Because no other rooms were available at the property that night, she first tried to convince us it was OK to stay there and just sleep with the windows open so the room would air out. When we told her that was not acceptable, she finally offered to let us cancel the reservation and find a new hotel at which to stay but she offered absolutely no help at all in finding another hotel room at 8:30 pm on a Friday night. Luckily we were able to find a room at a different hotel for our 3 night stay. Needless to say, I will never book a room at this hotel again and would never recommend it either.

This motel seemed authentic to the 1960s, but was clean and well maintained. The room and bathroom were small, but the room included coffee service and a small refrigerator. Our bed was very comfortable and it was a good value for an overnight. The owners/staff were friendly and helpful. There is free parking and it is an easy walk to the shops and restaurants in the center of town.
