With culinary treats, outdoor adventures, major events, a water park, and wineries to suit all tastes, it’s always a good time to explore California’s central coast. The best resorts in Paso Robles make your stay even more exciting. Resorts here put an upscale spin on traditional hotels, offering extra-special amenities like game rooms, lounges, pools, park access and spa services. You’ll find both grand properties and boutique inns that feel a world away from the hustle and bustle.

From classic wine country mainstays with vineyard views, to walkable downtown gems, to low-key RV resorts where you can park and play as you please, these are the five most popular Paso Robles resorts.

Allegretto Vineyard Resort is one of the best Paso Robles winery hotels, bringing a AAA Four-Diamond experience to the heart of wine country. Vineyards and orchards surround this sprawling estate, and they set a gorgeous backdrop for the striking architecture and European style of the property’s 171 rooms and suites. Accommodations have private balconies, Keurig coffeemakers, marble bath fixtures and luxurious amenities, and the Paso Robles resort and spa also promises plenty of upscale experiences.

At Allegretto Resort Paso Robles, you’ll find sculpture gardens and a sonic labyrinth that promotes relaxation. Look for one-of-a-kind design details like plaster crafted from pulverized Israeli marble, or the cross-section of a giant tree that once towered over Sequoia National Park. Local ingredients shape the Mediterranean dishes at Cello Ristorante & Bar, which also pours craft cocktails and Paso wines. This Paso Robles spa resort offers massages and body treatments, too, and there’s a fitness center, saltwater pool and weekend yoga classes.

Activities at Allegretto Paso Robles engage the mind and relax the spirit. Guided tours showcase resort owner Douglas Ayres’ art collection. An on-site abbey provides a peaceful place to reflect. The Star Garden Trail has 12 meditation stations, while garden swings and Adirondack chairs across the grounds make it easy to unwind. Say hi to George, the resort’s alpaca, or wander the chef's garden. You can book vineyard tours and private tastings that spotlight Allegretto Wines and other local producers.

The Paso Robles Inn is a 98-room landmark established in 1889, the same year that El Paso de Robles got its start as a city. Guestrooms were rebuilt after a 1940 fire, but the restored ballroom traces back to the hotel’s earliest days. Hot springs once flowed freely in downtown Paso – a few still do, in fact – and the Paso Robles Inn honors that history in 18 special spa rooms outfitted with a spa tub on a private balcony or patio, an in-room fireplace, and custom, wine-themed amenities. 

The Steakhouse at Paso Robles Inn is one of the area’s best. Locals love the prime rib special offered on Wednesdays and Sundays, and there’s a range of premium steaks, seafood, sides and wine. Choose from fireside seating inside or enjoy Paso’s signature sunshine on the dog-friendly garden patio. For laid-back dining and drinks, don’t miss the inn’s freshly remodeled Cattlemen's Lounge.
