Quiet affordable Couples or Solo Getaway
Posted Jun 26, 2016 on Hotels
The Desperado Inn is not as fancy as a lot of the other options near Paso Robles, but it is fantastic for quiet relaxation with beautiful vineyard views. The Inn has just a handful of rooms-we saw two of them and they are mildly worn and outdated but very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Desperado room which I would highly recommend as being the most private and quiet.
Food: The in brings in a chef every morning to serve breakfast which was great. They allowed us to eat outside every morning to enjoy the beautiful sweeping view of the valley by the pool. When they found out my husband is a vegetarian they accommodated this with grace.
Staff: it is a small and very friendly staff. They gave us lots of good tips about the area and were very helpful.
Pool: the pool is chilly which was great for us as it was 90+degrees-perfect for summer use but maybe not late fall. The view out by the pool is spectacular and very quiet and relaxing. Potentially my favorite part about the Inn other than the fantastic service.
Location: great for wineries, short drive to town where there are lots of restaurants.
Downsides: no downsides for us-I probably wouldn't bring a whole bunch of kids here-maybe an older kid who could enjoy the pool. Its not designed as a resort that you would spend all your time at, but is perfect as a homebase for local activities.
