This hotel has always been good, but now the rooms are updated and very new and clean looking. The location is also nice it is close to a few restaurants and only a short drive to the town square. the person at the front window was great.
Room was clean. Was 102 degrees that day and A/C refused to cooperate. Went to the front office and was told to talk to the maintenance person. I would think that that would be the job of the front office. After locating him, was told to shut down the unit and wait 5 minutes before staring it up again. After shutting unit down, and waiting an agonizing 5 minutes, turned the unit back on. Cool, not cold, air came out of the unit. Next time I will spend the extra money for a better motel. Was over $300 for the one night.
Where should I start...This is by far the worst hotel stay I had overall. 1. The room was noisy and the bed was dirty 2. Some guest got their car broken into during the night I was staying. (lucky it wasn't ours..) 3. Hotel owner is a greedy liar who will try to get your money no matter what. First, we checked in with 2 guests and asked for a 2 beds room. The next morning when we checkout, the Indian owner told us we need to pay additional for a special request. I mean, if there is additional charge, you should tell us when we check in to see if we agree or not. Instead, the owner decided he controls the rules on when he tells the customer and charged us additional fee even he never told us when we check in. When we confronted with him, his reply is I don't care, you stayed in a better room, you pay. He used the card we put in during check in and there is nothing we could do. My suggestion to stay here: 1. Obey.. The owner is the king and he decide how we want to treat you based on his mood at the moment 2. Bring some noise cancelling device. Headset or earplug should do. 3. Pray your car won't get broken into. (P.S. If it does get broken into, there is no camera.)…
I booked online directly on their website. I walked up to window, after driving 30 miles to get there, to get my key but was told I needed a $200. CASH deposit. No where on their website do they inform you of this cash deposit. There was no way I was going to go driving around looking for an ATM, pay ATM fees to hand them $200. cash. And how was I going to get this money back? In cash, NOPE. I wasted a lot of expensive gas and time driving up there and if I had been told about that deposit before hand I wouldn't have made the drive. Now I have no choice but to drive to the next town over. WHAT A WASTE It should be the law that ALL fees and deposits are disclosed on the booking site.
I had previously had this hotel booked. As I walk up to check in office said 150.00 in CASH ONLY extra for deposit which online doesn't mentioned and WONT accept cc. After I left and came back with his demand cash. He then asked for additional 20.00 CASH ONLY for my dog. Again not mentioned online. but pet friendly. This man didn't care if he lost a customer. He said good people stay here as I was walking away to my car in a 100 plus degree weather. Don't even bother they don't value a traveler even with money.
Decided to find a cheap hotel to stay at over the 4th weekend after we watched some fireworks. I went on Expedia and found this one for $130 - $150 after taxes. I still called to make sure they didn't have a cheaper price. The guy on the phone had told me there was one room left and it was $20 more than Expedia. Sounds like another reviewer went through this too. With one room left and the cheapest around, I hopped on it. With a military discount, it still came out to $180 which is way more than what Expedia had said. Oh well. The room was nice. Tile on the floor was nice. The beds were definitely not queen. We could barely fit two of us. There was a microwave and fridge which was nice because we had gotten pizza and mcdonalds a few hours before. The TV was nice, floor and bathroom were nice. Bathroom didn't come with hand soap. There was just a small half full shampoo bottle by the sink. Overall I would say 3.5-4 stars. Wasn't bad and was the cheapest around. Still got swindled. …
I checked in the the property manager was very friendly. Thank me for my business and said they take care of me. Thanked me for our conversation. It felt more personal. I walked into the room and was very surprised at how nice and clean the room was.
In a very expensive town, we were happy to find this very clean and nice budget hotel. The rooms were clean and redone (room 125 anyway), and there was a nice grassy area in the back for our dogs to play near the pool. In the center of the front side, there is a beautiful and large central grass area, two magnificent oak trees create a shady area with a couple of umbrella tables...very nice. Owner was fine. Its not a frills hotel, but it was better than expected.
Upon check-in I found the 'Innkeeper' to be hostile, offensive and downright rude. I walked out and found lodging elsewhere in Paso Robles. There is no reason to behave this way towards guests and the owner refused to refund my prepaid reservation even though I did not stay there. Makes me wonder if this is all part of his plan..
This place is cheap and no frills. But we found it to be clean and comfortable. I just wanted one night there while wine tasting, and this fit the bill. For $85 the bed was comfy, the bathroom was clean and fairly new and the service was friendly. Works great as a no frills pit stop. Can walk to much of downtown from there too.
