I will start by stating that my stay was following another hotel stay at Allegretto Resort. Bellasera was actually similar in price to Allegretto - as for the more reasonably priced rooms. The front desk person was nice and friendly. Most of the time it looked like they only had one person at the front. The rooms do not have any views, in my opinion. The only interesting feature would be rooms with the whirlpool spa. Someone else mentioned in their review that there was lots of noise. I agree. Early in the morning, people would slam a door outside of my room. I could also hear the hotel staff (probably housekeeping) yell to each other in the hallway. As I mentioned earlier, I also stayed at Allegretto- that is a 4-star hotel. Unfortunately, Bellasera did not feel near 4-stars.
This hotel had friendly staff and was clean despite some stains and dated decor but was one of the noisiest hotels I've ever experienced. We could hear someone's kid screaming through the walls and our unfortunate placement in a second floor room made every sound in the lobby and restaurant amplified to our room. At 8am we had staff outside our door loudly shouting up and down the hallway which really solidified this as the opposite of a relaxing stay
The place looks great. The rooms are large. Some of the decor in the bathroom is a little odd but still nice. My biggest observation is that it seemed under staffed or that the staff that was there was ill trained. I think it may have been more the latter as sometimes I would see staff standing around discussing work schedules.
Its my fault. Lesson learned, do your research. I stupidly accepted the provided photos and price as an indicator of quality. If I had just gone a little further with my prep I would have avoided this mistake. Tripadvisor says I cant tell you how much I paid but lets just say more than the Bellagio for the same nights. I imagined romantic strolls from the hotel through Paso Robles in the evening. I got the 101 freeway and a large shopping mall. I thought, carefully decorated, charming hotel room. I got 1980's off strip Vegas architecture and decor. I anticipated a delicious and sumptuous breakfast and I got hot plate diner fare. I was looking forward to wandering charming stores and bookshops, I got Lowes, Target and Chilly's. Lets be fair, Staff were almost all lovely, pleasant, and friendly. The rooms are large and had pretty good facilities. Parking is easy. Now the bad. Its NOT in the city of Paso Robles (did I mention the mall?). Muted traffic noise most of the time. Toilet broke, shower pitiful, DEEPLY suspicious stains on the furniture, view of car park and highway. On balance, if I had to stay in a hotel in a shopping mall by a freeway, on a bargain rate, this would be a good choice. I know its my fault, but it still burns how much I paid for this.…
We had a really nice stay here in a beautiful and spacious room. The lobby was lovely and the pool area was charming and comfortable. The only downside was that I expected a "resort" in wine country. However, located next to a highway, which you can hear from the pool area, it was not conducive to the resort feel I was seeking. At at the price paid, I was expecting a resort. All that being said, it looks like there are some sale prices and for a slightly lower price, I would stay here again and again. And it certainly is better than the Hampton Inn next door :).
We booked the hotel very last minute, as we were let down by a previous booking, friendly reception staff, rooms were modern, clean & comfortable, free parking. Breakfast was excellent, and reasonably priced. Overall I would recommend staying at this hotel.
Beautiful, new looking hotel that’s located close to downtown area and many vineyards. Huge , well appointed rooms with living area, huge bathroom and beautiful bedroom area. Laundry on 4 th floor for the guests was a huge convenience. Ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant, both delicious and relatively inexpensive. Overall, highly recommend
It's OK. Midweek rates for a decent room run @ $225/night including tax....double that for weekends. But for $200 one would expect to get fresh towels. Like EVERY hotel/motel /BnB I've been in all over the world on 5 continents, leaving your towels on the floor of the bathroom was the signal to get clean, dry towels...Here one must leave them on the floor IN THE HALLWAY...so, after a long day you come back to your room to freshen up before dinner and...you get the rest. Not acceptable, IMHO. Rooms were clean. The TV worked. The staff was genial enough but there was NO extra roll of TP...Again, for $200 it's not too much to ask.
Spent four sleepless nights in this hotel. Arrived Monday and was told that the upstairs room we had requested does not even exist. We were on the 2nd floor. Ok-that was annoying but not upsetting. Unfortunately for us, we had a family with three children directly above us who ran, jumped and basically ran around from the minute they awoke (8 AM) till the minute they went to sleep (11 PM) Thank God we were gone for 4-6 hours a day playing golf. It was soooo noisy. The floors/ceiling were not existent ..room actually shook from the noise. Could not even relax in the evening..bed needed replacing, room was stuffy from poor heating/air conditioning system. If you opened a window it sounded like a freeway truck/car was driving thru your room...Terrible. I averaged 3-4 hours of sleep a night. The whirlpool tub was not easy to enter or exit-so we did not use it at all. ..worst trip we have had in the last 5 years. The staff was friendly, but had no control over the many many things that are wrong with this hotel. They spent the money on "glitz" it is a pretty place to look at..but not to sleep in. Oh, also they blamed COVID (which is basically a thing of the past for most people) for not being able to offer any kind of house cleaning due to no staff etc. ...and we found the hotel to be about a 5 on the clean scale. The furniture (tho pretty) very very very uncomfortable to sit in for more than 1 hour...so forget watching any TV and using the living room (which we paid for) and plan on watching TV in your bed. Which is also uncomfortable. All in all...save your money...go somewhere else.…
We had a one bedroom suite for three nights at a cost of $1400+ . The room was by the elevator and anytime it was in use we became very much aware- all night long! Between that and the stomping noise from the room above us, and the noise from the lobby, sleeping was impossible. I asked that the room be refreshed with new towels and trash emptied and more coffee added-I was told that they only did that every two days! I took my filled trash can to the maid and emptied it and brought my dirty towels to her when we returned in the late afternoon but she said she didn’t have any more towels. The manager came out of another room and he was very cordial and said he would have some sent up. I complained to him of the constant noise in our room and he offered to give us a bottle of wine which was nice but it does not solve the constant noise level. I suggest anyone coming to the Paso Robles area to stay at the Hampton Suites (which was right next door)or any other hotel for half of the price. I was very disappointed and felt cheated at the La Bellasera!…
