As evacuees from the Santa Barbara fire, we couldn’t have had a better experience at Hotel Cheval. We had intended to stay here earlier, but could never find the right time. So, our stay, on the spur of the moment due to the fire, gave us a wonderful 2 days in a deluxe room with lovely gas fireplace. The hotel is dog friendly, which is huge for us as we love to travel with our dog. The bed, shower, and room were lovely although there is no elevator, so be aware if you are booked on the second floor...not a problem for us. The breakfasts were terrific and far beyond any continental breakfast. Loved the courtyard beautifully decorated for Christmas and the evening s’Mores are a delight. Another great benefit is that the hotel is close to the town square so you can walk to many good restaurants. Parking at the hotel was fine...No doubt we will be back in the near future!

Our second time staying at this charming hotel. We and our dog made very welcome, nice bar and walking distance to good restaurants. And the bed was very comfortable. Open fires in the courtyard and in the elegant library made for a great atmosphere on a cold evening. We will definitely use again.

My Girlfriend made all the arrangements for this vacation, but she does amazing research and always has the best taste when it comes to travel! It was therefore no surprise she chose Hotel Cheval!! This place is beautifully done, quaint, and centered around a courtyard with multiple blazing fireplaces!!! The nights in California (especially in December!) can be quite chilly and sitting around these fireplaces chatting with the other guests about the days wine outings and the next days plans was not only lovely, but also extremely helpful as we got many great tips and suggestions! To top off these evenings, they have a "S'mores Butler" that comes around with a little cart of treats and makes you s'mores right there in the fire.... OK, youre skeptical like I was, DONT BE!!! EAT THEM!!!! The room was lovely and spacious, well maintained, and very clean. The "continental breakfast" went above and beyond too, offering lox, ham, cereals, fritattas, and much more! My only complaints would be that the bar closes at something like 8-8:30pm even though people sit outside eating s'mores until 10 or so... an activity that basically DEMANDS a glass of wine. This whole dang town closes by 8-9pm, for that matter, so plan accordingly! I was also surprised to find that the rooms didnt have mini fridges or safes. The safe wasnt a big deal, most people here have a car with them, but a mini fridge would have been extremely helpful, especially while we spent each day buying wines! (Paso is known for its reds, etc etc, but a fridge would be helpful!) Lastly, I asked the woman at the front desk what activities and wineries she would recommend and was rudely deluged with a barrage of statements about how vague and unspecific my question was and she indicated she didnt have time for that. True, it was vague, but jeepers lady! My girlfriend asked another hotel staffer and was told about the elephant seal mating season, which we saw and loved! We would never have known about this had we not asked a broad and vague question. My advice: Plan your trip, stay here, avoid the 'concierge' and definitely DO NOT avoid Roberto and his S'more trolly!!! Cheers!!

This quiet charming boutique hotel embodies warmth and attention to detail. The beds are beautifully made and comfortable. The breakfast is beyond your expectations—including the best bagels you will ever eat and smoked wild salmon. Arrive early/Leave late!

Excellent hospitality; cozy setting; thoughtful service. Everyone we dealt with made an extra effort to make us feel at home. Central location. We enjoyed staying there and look forward to going back. Smor’llier is not to be missed

What a great hotel. The hotel was so charming and needless to say, the bed was amazing. Great mattress and bedding. I thought the room was extremely comfortable and cozy. The bathroom was great and the shower was excellent. We loved sitting by the fire in the courtyard at night and drinking a bottle of wine. They have an awesome little bar and patio and the night we were there, they had an excellent woman singer songwriter perform. Don’t miss the s’mores at night. Breakfast was perfect, generous and very tasty. Great spot to hang in Paso Robles. Charming.

We have stayed at Hotel Chaval for the last three years and we have never been disappointed. The rooms and property are beautiful and immaculate. The breakfast is delicious and with something for every appetite either on the self service bar or from the kitchen. There are several outdoor sitting areas, two of which have fireplaces where the S’mores butler will make you a heavenly treat in the evenings. The staff at Hotel Cheval are marvelous, they really know how to take care of their guests, no request is too big or too small. We are already looking forward to next year!

We only stayed a single evening, but absolutely loved every moment of our time at Hotel Cheval. As a self-professed Type-A, lover of details, I was blown away by the clear time and attention that went into everything from the s'mores butler, to the tea options, to the display of breakfast items. Small touches like freshly baked goods in the afternoon, smartly packaged bottled waters, and personal itineraries were the perfect compliment to the incredibly comfortable linens, tasteful and beautiful decor, and attentive service. We hope to have the opportunity to visit this stunning property again in the near future.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a main floor standard room. It was a very nice room, with a great bathroom and a beautiful patio. There was a nice breakfast in the bar each morning and every night there were s’more’s around the fireplaces. This hotel is very well maintained and well built. Looking forward to coming back again.

Hotel Cheval has now become our boutique hotel of choice in Paso Robles, CA. We recently ended our second stay there and immediately booked next year’s visit before leaving. My wife and I absolutely love this hotel and appreciate the level of service provided by all of the staff. We couldn’t ask for better care while traveling. Paso Robles has become a yearly destination for us and we wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else other than Hotel Cheval. It’s truly “The Best!”
