Paso Robles Hotels

Paso Robles is a destination for people who enjoy the finer things in life – whether it's freshly pressed drizzles of olive oil, glasses of oaky wine, or the bubbles of natural hot spring spas. The consistently sunny Californian climate means the region's juicy clumps of grapes can be left to hang from their spirally vines for longer than in the revered wine making areas of Europe. This gives Paso Robles' wines distinctive character, and ensures each glass bursts with the full-bodied flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and chocolate.

Things to see

Traditional – and somewhat restrictive - winemaking practices have been thrown out the window in Paso Robles, where a new breed of independent wine makers are rewriting the rulebook to make some of the most daring – and delicious - wines in California. You don't have to be a wine buff to appreciate the subtle notes and flavors present, as you fill your nose with smoky aromas, and swill ruby-colored wines around your mouth. While wineries like Eagle Castle and Rio Seco are perfect for an afternoon's tasting, the best way to get a true flavor for the area is to visit in August, when the annual Winemaker's Cookoff celebration takes place. Slurp delicious wines, chew on succulent beef burgers, and dance to live music until the early hours. If you wake up with a sore head from a little over indulgence, there's no better way to clear it than by heading to Cayucos State Beach. Grab your surfboard - or swim lazily in the Pacific's waves - before you wander through the peaceful town. There, you can eat in pretty wooden restaurants, which serve fresh shellfish, or follow your nose to cafés offering gooey cookies, and strong black coffees.

Dump your bags in your room before heading downstairs to enjoy lounging on flower-tangled patios, cooling off in oceanic indoor and outdoor pools, or settling down for a little al fresco dining. Don’t worry if it's cold at night - hotels in Paso Robles can offer in-room fireplaces and soft chairs – perfect for finishing off a bottle before bed. The city's hotels are generally well furnished, offering free WiFi, Cable TV, and plenty of secure parking.

Where to stay

Paso Robles life orbits around downtown's City Park, which is bordered by trendy wine bars, and upscale restaurants. The park itself is a creative hub thanks to Studios on the Park, where you can watch artists dabbing and splashing away, and even pick up an original work if something catches your eye. Most of the city's hotels lie close to Highway 101 - in the north of the city - making it easy to drive out to the coast for the day, or to visit the Vina Robles Amphitheatre for an evening's entertainment. Great wine and live music go together like a jigsaw, and the Amphitheatre's scenic setting – with only the stars for a ceiling – provides the cherry on top.

How to get to Paso Robles

Paso Robles sits conveniently between Los Angeles and San Francisco's Bay Area, and is relatively easy to get to from either of the cities. Drive over in a little more than 3 hours, or fly to San Luis Obispo County Regional - which is about 40 minutes' away from Paso Robles by car. The train is another option, as Amtrak's 'Coast Starlight' service stops in the city. Amtrak also offers bus connections from Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo as part of the 'Pacific Surfliner' service.
