... but without a visit to a vineyard.... What a disgrace! Today I got the offer to take a road trip on a big rig which is something I've always wanted to do.... So we hauled up the freeway about halfway to San Francisco and picked up a tanker of hydrochloric acid the dropped it at the oil fields Bakersfield on the way back to LA. Not the conventional tourist sight seeing day in LA (and it was a long day) but fun to see some of the real ...
Left Carpinteria after coffee and bananas at Starbucks for Internet. (Bananas and juice from Albertsons supermarket - very convenient to hotel. First stop, Santa Barbara, 10 miles down the road. Walked out the pier then a drive around as we out of town toward Solvang. A winding drive up through the hills to Solvang, the Danish tourist spot. Had a light lunch, soup for me, ...
... was the RV park, but Fritz detoured to show us a beaver dam. I have no idea what that has to do with wine.
I’m pretty sure we made it back to the RV—Barbara says around 4:30. I think I had dinner. I must have gone to bed at some point, because I woke up in the morning in bed with an ice bag on my head and cuddling a bottle of cabernet.
All-in-all, it was a great way to cap off the trip. I wish I could remember more of ...
... at our site and walked down to the beach to experience the imposing Morro Rock, passing the local wastewater treatment plant, concrete plant and the hazardous waste collection sites next door which sat in the shadow of the tri-towered power plant. The beach was covered with gnarled masses of seaweed strewn within steps of each other, interspersed with the occasional horse or dog ****.
Today we decided to spend the day at the beach. First I took a morning walk that went by the Old West Cinnamon Rolls bakery. The cinnamon rolls were very good. Our day at the beach lasted for about two hours it was 60 degrees and windy. I did break out my kite which the weather was perfect for. All in all a relaxing day with a bunch of reading.

Historical Traveler Reviews Adelaide Inn Paso Robles
We chose the Adelaide Inn because of the reviews posted in here. Then suddenly a couple of sub-par reviews started being posted...which worried me for a while.
All I can say is that I had a wonderful time. The place was clean, it was quiet and pretty well kept.
Note that this place is rated two (2) diamonds by AAA. Which means it is a motor-inn. If you want top notch amenities, service, etc, go to the Hampton Inn a couple of miles south....and pay $150+ per night.
With Adelaide, you are getting an awesome value for less than half the price of a 3-diamond hotel.
We chose the Adelaide Inn based on the reviews on this site and I was somewhat disappointed. The room was clean, of average size, but with that horrible 70's brown decor that so many motels seem to have and a little bit of a weird smell. The pool/hot tub area was very cute, though we didn't use it because the weather was poor, and I was surprised by how quiet it was at night, despite the busy location. I don't think I'd stay here again -- I'd look for something closer to downtown, which is slowly growing into a wine country center.
Not likely to return
Made reservations over the phone. They DID NOT tell us they were building a new wing next to ours. Very noisy construction crews begin work at about 7:30 AM. Some of our personel pillows were either stolen or swept away into the maids cart. No way to retrieve. Front desk staff told us to check out if we did not like it. So we did. Some hospitality eh?
Don't miss this place!
Great Place to stay in Paso Robles. The motel is very nice and affordable and has a neat looking swimming pool ... it is though not located near many restaurants, you'll need to head up the street to Spring street, which has many super places to eat ... We went to a very good Italian restaurant named BUONA TAVOLIA and had an awesome meal. Highly recommended.
Excellent value for money!!!
Great value for money. The room was large, clean and comfortable. There were some great extras on site- fantastic large pool, cute putting green, idyllic picnic and barbeque area. Busy location, but quiet. Good restaurants nearby! Definately a family place in a great town, not touristy. Visit mission San Miguel!
Best Motel Ever
This was the cheapest motel I could find in Paso Robles. It was also the best motel I've ever stayed in. The room was sparkling clean - none of that dank mustiness you often get at motels. Despite being right off the freeway (very convenient!), the Adelaide Inn is surrounded by trees and the room was totally quiet. The grounds have lots of nice touches - a beautiful pool area, picnic benches, even a fish pond. The room itself was very large and spacious. The artwork on the walls was interesting and original, not something that was bought in bulk from uglydecor.com. The people at the front desk were very nice and helpful. I have nothing but good things to say about this motel.
If you need a specific room type, look elsewhere
It was a lovely, clean little motel and reasonably priced. HOWEVER, I have a knee disability and specifically requested a lower unit. I also specified that I would arrive late. I even called again a few days ahead to check that the reservation was in order. When we arrived at 10 pm, the lower units were all taken. It was too late to look elsewhere, so with my husband helping, I hobbled up the steps. If you don't care about your room type, single, double, smoking, non, etc. than it won't be a problem. If you do care about getting what you specify, then steer clear. This place can NOT be trusted to give a room as you book it! I travel a great deal and this is the first time this has happened to me. Don't let it happen to you. Look elsehwere.
The Gold Standard of Motels
For many years I ran a winery that bought grapes in the Paso area. I must have stayed there 50 times and never found anything but spotles rooms, marvelous service and very quiet rooms. A true bargain. Now that I live here thats where I send my friends.
Great Place to stay
This is one of the cleanest hotels that I've stayed in. The front desk is friendly and responsive. The rooms are good sized and the surroundings are very charming.
Great Little Motel
I had several stays at the Adelaide Inn when I first took a job in the Paso Robles area and needed a place for weekdays before I could get moved into a rental. The staff was great, room clean and very affordable. Plenty of places to eat, drink & be merry in the vacinity. Couldn't be beat for the price.
