I think this is a good option if you want to stay in Paso Robles proper, and not at, say a bed and breakfast out by the vineyards. That being said, the hotel is still a 5 min drive to the main part of town where the restaurants and tasting rooms are. Normally this is not an issue, but if your main purpose is to drink wine, then driving to town is not ideal (although there are many transportation options which the front desk will happily arrange).
However, I agree with the reviewers that the hotel is clean and the rooms are nicely appointed. The service here is the standout, as they are a new hotel and building up their name. I came here for a girls getaway to escape super bowl weekend. We did not meet the owners, but were instead greeted very enthusiastically by Jennifer, who proceeded to give us a suggested winery list, waived tasting fees, arranged our transportation with "Destination Drivers" (highly recommended) and made our dinner reservation at Buono Tavela (also recommended).
We were ambitious and hit five wineries the first day, which leads me to the next highlight of this hotel - the bed. I slept for 12 hours (partly due to the wine) because the bed was fantastically comfortable.
I would not stay here if you are looking for high luxury necessarily, but since this is Marriott prices, you get way more than you would pay for then at a Courtyard. You could pay much more to stay at other hotels in Paso and I'm sure they are interesting, however, for us (especially since we were only at the hotel to sleep off the wine) this was the perfect option.
