Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites - Paso Robles
Very nice but pricier than expected
This is a great, relatively new spot from which to tour the wineries or visit Hearst Castle. The rooms were very nice and the breakfast exceeded my expectations in variety. High speed internet access was nice for kids to AIM friends (hotels provided cables), and we really enjoyed the pool, which was well maintained and nicely furnished/designed. It was a bit pricey for the weekend though. Weeknights feature (yet more) wine tasting.
In April I stayed at the Hampton Inn for two nights, and was very happy there. The hotel is brand-new, has a lovely lobby and breakfast area, and large rooms that are sparkling-clean. I had never visited Paso Robles before, and I felt that the location of the hotel was great: a few minutes' drive to the town square, but closer to the rolling hills and small-town feel of the wineries. (Being on the west side of 101 was a good thing: the east side is not as pretty.) I suppose it would have been nice to be a little further from the highway, but I couldn't hear road noise at all from our room facing the highway. However, that is the reason I didn't give the Hampton Inn the highest rating.
Excellent Hotel Stay
My family and I enjoyed this hotel - the rooms very sparkling clean - the staff was friendly - and the continental breakfast was terrific...the best I've had at a hotel!
We will definitely stay at this hotel again next time we visit this area.
My visit to Paso Robles was nice, except I reserved a handicap room on the first floor, but ended on the top floor in a smoking room. We were moved to a room on the 1st floor, but that one was dirty. Some food leftover from the previous guest. I spoke to the Manager, but he didn't seem to care. We ended up cleaning out the trash ourselve. Nice place, but lousy service. I'd say.
Great for wine country visits!
Stayed here for 2 nights while touring the Paso Robles wine country. Hotel is on a spacious lot, right on the intersection of the two roads most travelled for winery visits. Request a room on the back of the hotel, away from Hwy 101 (the back of the hotel has a decent view of farms and is nice and quiet). Front desk employees were friendly. There is a well-run wine hour in the lobby every day with representatives from area wineries. Rooms were spacious, airy and clean. There's a functional business center with email access, etc. I'd definitely stay here again.
We just had to come back for more +++
I had to go on a business trip to CA and looked for a convenient hotel close to HWY 101 and Hwy 46 west (it is right there on the SW corner) between 8/22-24.
What a pleasant surprise for me and my wife!!! It rates right up there with more expensive luxury hotels. Excellent deal and highly recommended for it's helpful staff and service, comfortable rooms with free highspeed internet access, free breakfast buffet with a very good selection, it's wonderful ambience, overall cleanliness and clean heated outdoor pool and hot tub (though first the tub was a little too hot). We had to leave the area for two days and wanted to come back to the Hampton Inn for another two days but could only get a room for the Friday night - it was booked solid for a wedding on the weekend. No wonder. This is one little gem along HWY 101 and did I mention the afternoon wine tasting with complimentary cheese and crackers?!?!? ;-) We only caught it on one afternoon but you should ask about it because they sell wine from local wineries right there at the Inn. And so centrally located that we had great seafood dinners with the necessary romantic 'sunset over the sea' all along the coast from Pismo Beach to Cambria all within a 30 mile radius! Very quiet on the 101 facing side if you leave the windows closed, the A/C was very good and N/S is really non-smoking.
A+++ for this one. We'll be back!
Great Hotel close to Highway 1
We chose this hotel because it was only 25 miles from Cambria and Highway 1. It was a one-night stay on our way to Monterey. The hotel was practically new. Breakfast was great, we did laundry while we stayed, and used the outdoor jacuzzi before going to bed. This was one of the nicest Hampton Inns we have ever stayed in. We didn't do much in Paso Robles, but it was close to where we wanted to go and much cheaper than what we priced in Cambria.
Two Dolla beers
$2 beers..need I say more?.. nice place too, good breakfast!
Great hotel - dull city
Hotel is on a hill on edge of town (middle of nowhere), right by freeway. Felt and looked new, friendly staff. Good rooms, nice small pool area. pretty good buffet breakfast.
Paso Robles is dull and uninteresting, few dining options and no life after 8pm.
Stayed early August and room rate was top dollar but we didnt feel ripped off
High quality sttay
Stayed here 3/27/2004. Very clean, comfortable, excellent service - only a year old. Would stay here again.

... name, but the best they could come up with was that the store was started about two hundred years ago (I don't think so). So what that has to do with smartness and finality, I don't know. Maybe if you shop there, it's a smart move, and it could be your final stop of the day. Maybe the shop was started by two people named Smart and Final. There were no signs in the store about all sales being final, so it couldn't be that. It will have ...

The tour starts with a bus ride up the hillside to the castle. We were hoping the fog would burn off, but part of the genius of Hearst's vision was that he seemingly picked the one spot on the hills that was usually just above the fog line. It was just about exactly when we reached the gates to the property that the fog finally gave way.
The tour group gathered outside for a brief intro on Mr. Hearst and ...
... indoor Roman pool with detailed tilework, a welcoming room where guests would arrive, a dining room, and an after-dinner/breakfast entertainment room (all of which were huge), we headed outside to explore the grounds. They were immaculate with gorgeous blooming flowers landscaping the areas around the three cottages and the Neptune Pool. We took advantage of the gorgeous sunny weather while we leisurely strolled the grounds. They seemed to go ...

We only stayed at Santa Monica for 30 minutes but got to the beaches which were beautiful. It is the only place that I have seen that I could say that the sand was better than the Gold Coast. The houses were magnificent and now I understand why the Movie Stars live here. They are the only ones who could afford it.
We then continued onto Santa Barbara and were ...

Our guide, Paul, kept up his dialog and gave us a history of the forest, an outline of current forestry policies and strategies, facts and stories about the park and trees. As we drove through the park, he explained how the National Park Service has moved from the concept ...
