Stayed here one night for a work related trip. Great location, right across from the town square with all the shopping and restaurants and the grounds seem well cared for. Not crazy about the motel/outside entry and the brown carpets so the rooms seemed dark. Rooms were large as was bathroom. Didn't use the mineral tub on balcony.

The PRI is located in the main area of Paso Robles, a few minutes walk from the majority of shops, restaraunts & bars etc. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the town but if you are visiting for whatever reason you can't fault the hotel's location.

Rooms are comfortable and clean with the usual facilities you would expect to find. The decor is based on dark wood for the majority of rooms and this gives an overall dark decor. My opinion is it gives the place a bit of character but it does mean you need the lights on when in your room. Deluxe Spa rooms are larger and have their own whirl pool which is fed either from the local water supply or from the natual mineral springs. Unfortunately, the mineral springs do tend to release a 'sulphur/bad eggs' smell. Some days are more noticeable than others but this is the price you pay for the hotel being fed by the springs. Whilst not a fan of the sulphur smell it is not overpowering by any stretch of the imagination and has not prevented me from re-visiting the hotel.

The grounds are pleasing to the eye and well maintained. The steak house restaraunt offers good food at reasonable prices. The staff were always very helpful; in fact on one occasion when I was trying to tee up a round of golf (if you'll excuse the pun) one member of staff gave me a dozen or so of his golf balls so I didn't have to buy any.

Without being elaborate I'd suggest this is a comfortable hotel that offers value for money. If you can afford it, it is worth spending the extra and trying the Deluxe Spa rooms.

We stayed at the Paso Robles inn during Jacko's funeral week. Great TV to watch it all on CNN ;0)
Lovely pool, good beds and well tended gardens. Bathroom was good size but bath had a very side which could be problematic for some. Inhospitable welcome, the receptionists couldn't get rid of us fast enough and weren't very helpful in organising wine tours. Bar staff were lovely and more than helpful. Don't feel obliged to eat in the restaurant as there are good places nearby for breakfast and dinner that are much cheaper. Free parking.

We recently stayed a couple of nights at Paso Robles Inn. I researched TripAdvisor before going and noticed quite a few negative reviews in recent months. This had me concerned since this would be our first visit to the Inn. We are pleased to report that our stay was very nice. The folks at the front desk were very nice and helpful. Our room was nice and the bathroom was big. We stayed in the building where the Ball Room is (right over the Ball Room) - no events - so it was nice and quiet. The grounds are immaculate. The location of the Inn is very nice for walking and shopping. I would recommend the restaurant Artisan if you get a chance - exceptional!

We attended a concert at the fairgrounds and it was very nice that the shuttle bus picked up right in front of the Inn.

Thanks and we will come back.

We booked a room for our wedding night while in town getting married. The building stunk of sulphur,smelling like skunks or bad farts. My wife stayed the night before so when we arrived the hotel had not even cleaned the room or made the bedding.The room stunk of skunk smell the bed was a mess ,they charged us for water even.when she explained the room wasnt cleaned and our situation ,the staff laughed it off and said they were busy cause it was saturday...oh well. we are both disscusted and will never go back. The only thing i could do was to tell others not to stay.ive notified my family and friends in paso robles too and told them and they too are not recommending the hotel to any of their out of town guests ever! I recommend some of the other hotels in the area like the new marriot or the carlton in atascadero,also the apple farm in san luis obispo is nice , but stay away from the dump- the paso robles inn.

Pro: right on the park with 'out the door' access to this small, elegant city. Helpfull staff, good parking, resort atmosphere. By far, the best hotel location in town.
Cons: Rooms and facilities in general are out of the 70's and the whole place is in need of major updating, ie, you can feel the 40 plus years of use once you walk in the rooms. Nothing seems fresh. TV did not work. Paid big bucks for the private balcony jacuzzi suite but the thing was full of scum and stains. Really disgusting. WAY OVERPRICED. Needs owners with a commitment to making this the flagship Paso Robles 'go to' hotel, instead of milking the hotel history and ripping us off.

A miserable, condescending woman named Nicole checked us in after we waited twenty minutes to even be acknowledged. Details about the reservation were incorrect. Instead of apologies offered, we were spoken to rudely. The process took absurdly long considering that she kept answering the phone for in depth conversations. The room itself was dirty and outdated! We expected much more for the high price. (Like clean bedspreads for one.) A "do not disturb" sign wasn't available and the maid woke us up long before we were ready to rise. And then knocked again, moments later. So rude!!! When we checked out, there were two bags of trash right beside our door. I went into the restaurant and grabbed a coffee to go. I waited for ten minutes before the server greeted me. Three dollars for a cup of lukewarm joe. Awful! The location is perfect. The air conditioner worked well. The grounds were well maintained. EVERYTHING else; a major disappointment! Stay anywhere, but here!
