Our List Of The 12 Best Paso Robles Hotels
So why do we think this is one of the best hotels in Paso Robles? This hotel does the best job of mixing high-end accommodations with direct access to vineyards and a winery. When we stayed here, we felt like an honored guest at a private estate winery. And that's not far from the truth.
The seven guest rooms at the CaliPaso Inn feature private balconies or patios overlooking the estate vineyard, fireplaces, and soaking tubs. There is a comfortable sitting area where you can enjoy a bottle of wine in front of the fire. The rooms feel less like your typical hotel room and more like a cool flat that you would find in a European city.
You can wander the grounds, start the day with a buffet breakfast, and relax outside in the courtyard. The Inn offers a complimentary wine and cheese pairing in the afternoon. You also get discounted tastings at the Cali Paso tasting room in downtown Paso Robles. You just need to tell them you are staying at the inn.
All of this combines to make this our favorite hotel in Paso Robles.
Our next top Paso Robles hotel is also on a vineyard. The Croad Winery is owned by a New Zealand native who understands how to make great wine and how to run a wonderful B&B. Unlike our first hotel, this one is located on the west side of Paso Robles. This is the slightly cooler area that is influenced by the strong ocean breezes. You can visit ten world-class wineries with just a short drive from this property. You can also take a one minute walk from the guestrooms to the Croad tasting room!
The views are breathtaking from the common area. You can find a number of private spots to relax, sip wine, read or just gaze off into the vineyards.
