We LOVED this hotel! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. To close out a cool fall evening, we sat at the outdoor fireplace where we were served a selection of creative and tasty s'mores! It was so much fun. Wish we had stayed longer! Our room was lovely-warm and inviting as were the common areas. The library with the candy bar is such a cute touch! So nice to be able to walk to all the restaurants! Will definitely go back!

My husband and I finally were able to book two nights here on Thanksgiving weekend. I can’t recommend highly enough this amazing inn. From the small details of creamy bath soap to fluffy white bath towels to a complimentary bottle of merlot set by the fireplace, the included breakfast on the weekends, on and on...The interior courtyard is oh, so charming, with two fireplaces, decorated for Christmas throughout. I could go on and on, but this is THE only place to stay in Paso!

In a nutshell the reason for my poor rating is the initial greeting was poor and the service in pony club was unfriendly. Leaving me feeling unwelcome in the first case and embarrassed in the second. Not what you expect for $500 a night. When we first arrived around noon the woman at the desk did not greet me. She made eye contact and said nothing. I had to stand awkwardly for a minute, finally letting her know we were just arriving, wanted to park our car and check in. Her answer was to answer in an annoyed voice “you’re early!” Followed by nothing after. I understand that sometimes you need to wait to get into your specific room, but at any standard hotel we would have been offered a seat in the lobby, to leave our bags at the front desk, and some recommendations for local lunch places to walk to. I had to ask for each of these. To top it off she claimed the electric vehicle spot we called ahead for was not reserved. Our second evening at the hotel we decided to have a pre-dinner drink at the lobby bar before heading out. The first thing the waiter said was “there is a 15 dollar minimum.” I let him know that we were hotel guests staying for one drink and he said that I would need to go inside and ask the bartender because “sometimes they’re ok with it.” I found this to be extremely rude. There were plenty of open seats. In both of these cases, the person I interacted with next was good (the person who checked us in when we returned at 4pm and the main bartender). But bad first impressions at key moments really colored my perceptions of the whole experience. Despite wanting to love this place for its charm, great decor, and s’mores I would not stay here again.

Loved this hotel! I’m so glad there’s finally a nice place for us to stay when we visit Paso Robles. From the amazing service to the comfy beds our short stay was flawless. They’re dog friendly which is always nice to find. The staff was super helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

This is a well designed hotel with spacious rooms and welcoming staff. Our room had a gas fireplace and plenty of space. It is conveniently located in the downtown area near many shops, restaurants, and tasting rooms. (However, the best tasting rooms are located out of town at the wineries.) There is a small bar/restaurant, which serves breakfast in the morning and drinks at night. There is also a large outdoor patio with an outdoor fireplace.

This is a lovely small boutique property. The small bar is very nice, and the patio seating area is cozy. Live music on the patio on the weekends from around 6-8 ish. The "S'mores Butler" in the private courtyard in front of the roaring fire is a favorite. They had gluten free graham crackers for me so that I could partake (notified GF restriction when making the reservation). The rooms are lovely. It's a great spot.

Hard to rate this place with 3 stars only because it is a great place, and we had a great time. The staff is super. The outdoor fires and smores were great. The room and its private patio was nice. So why a 3 star? Simply put, its way overpriced for what you get. We have stayed in some of the top Inns in America and this one cant compete for the price they charge. For example, the breakfast was a big bust. Frozen type bagels, cold scrambled eggs and a fruit salad made up of not ready melon. Just a step up from an average Hotel 6 breakfast. Certainly not worthy of a class of hotel this places advertises to be, and charges for. The candy bar was nice. But then again they serve cheap, stale red vines. I am a Liquorish gourmet. If you are going to serve red liquorish, you should make it Australian which is expensive but worth it. Its those kinds of details that make this place not worthy of its hefty price. One night we returned for dinner and I found in my room on top of my laptop a Hotel cloth for cleaning my screen. Nice. But that's not enough to justify the price. But it seems like the hotel can book patrons even at their inflated prices, so good for them. So, do I like the hotel. Absolutely! Do I think it is priced anywhere near correctly and worthy of a repeat visit. Nope.

The staff is polite and helpful. The room was clean. The courtyard and evening fires were lovely and pleasant. However, the bed was extremely firm and my back was sore after sleeping on it for 2 nights. The insulation in the walls is thin. We could hear coughing and the conversation in the next room. Unfortunately, the sounds were transmitted next to the bed where we were trying to fall asleep. The shower needs a sweep to block the water from running through the door gaps and getting the floor wet. Otherwise, it was fine

Very unique experience and worth the price. From the personal welcome upon check in, the beautiful and spacious room, the delicious breakfast and - s'mores by the outdoor fireplace - this place has it all. The town is lovely to visit with nice shops and restaurants but I really could have happily stayed in the comfortable courtyard the whole time! Hoping to get back here for another visit and have already told many friends to book their rooms. Forgot to mention the candy bar!

We booked for an executive retreat, with people coming from Texas, Canada, and California. Everyone was very happy with their rooms, the meeting space worked out perfectly, and we made good use of the many fires and other seating areas in the courtyard.
