Travel Blogs from Paso Robles
Today we headed to the Ravine Waterpark in Paso Robles for a bit of fun in the sun and water. The park had 5 slides of varying heights. Jasmine's favourite was the toilet bowl! The girls had their own cabana with lots of pizza, drinks and ice cream. After a full day of water sliding fun and a few bruised elbows we returned to the house for a fresh fish fry. The girls made homemade vanilla ice cream and Jim fried up the fresh Lingcod he caught on Monday. ...
... I am greeted by a young man who seems to be composed of smiles and blonde dreadlocks, offering to give me a hand with my quest for fire.
"Come over and hang out at our fire for a bit, then I'll come back with you with some wood and my trusty torch and get you all set." he says without the smile leaving his face for even a second. I oblige and get introduced to the other 5 people huddled around the bonfire, which was topped with what looked to be the ...
... at least. Susie, a complete novice but by far the best, and I were up first time, Hannah and Amy soon followed after some encouragement from various over enthusiastic instructors. Thanks to 'Stephen’ who misinterpreted Susie as Sisi, we soon found our first American alter ego. Soon after came our first and eagerly awaited Starbucks to reward our morning of exertion; we might not be beach babe ...
... and others not moving at all. And oil pipe lines everywhere, taking the oil to holding tanks nearby. And we wondered if some large company might have come in and bought the land from a local farmer for the price of farm land, then turned it into a mega-million dollar operation.
We found ourselves in very fertile farm land. Flat fields of green plants as far as the eye could see. On the right, they went to the horizon and beyond, and to the left ...
... I made it to 40mph with others passing me, incredible.
Rest Stop 2 as I am bent over putting on sunstuff I hear a crash and ewwwws and ahhhhs and are you ok? I look up and its Mike making his arrival at the rest stop. I rush to help him but others are there first. The people on this ride are incredible, everyone is watching out for each other. I get ahold of Mike and another takes his bike and we move toward the med tent.
Mikes putting ice ...

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.
