PS this is HOTEL not a B & B and is misclassified by Trip Advisor!
My wife and I have traveled throughout the world and have also been fortunate to have traveled throughout California and in particular in wine country and absolutely love this place.
This is a beautiful hip and amazing downtown hotel in heart of SLO (only one in the area). We usually stay in Paso Robles and have enjoyed our stay there however you cant beat parking your car in the back lot and walking to downtown area and having nice meal, drinking and walking back to the cool Granada Bistro with terrace with heat lamps and sipping some more wonderful wine (they actually have an amazing wine selection .. . .not just from California as we had an amazing Spanish wine from R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia, S.A. kudos to their Sommelier for such an amazing selection!)
Pros: Downtown location, hip vibe with beautiful terrace in restaurant and terrace on 2nd floor which is only open to hotel guests, free parking, amazing friendly service, beautifully appointed rooms which we loved they even have C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries toiletries from NYC (really cool touch!)
Cons: No fault of their own but Thursdays is a Farmers market so the streets are closed off however they called and let us know where we can park and that they would validate the parking at that location (really nice service related touch), there is no elevator but there is only two floors but that might be an issue for mobility impaired individuals (they might have a service elevator that people with those issues might use but I would inquire with hotel staff first as we arent mobiliy impaired) Otherwise no cons from our end!
This is absolutely a cool spot . . . the exposed brick and beautiful furnishings and top notch service makes this a great spot to be a base for exploring wine country and one of the best things is you can actually walk to downtown SLO attractions which we loved ! and of course there is a cool bar/restaurant with wonderful wine. You cant lose staying here.
This will now be our go to place in Paso Robles/SLO wine country as we absolutely loved this place!
