My elderly parents and I stayed at the La Quinta Inn & Suites on Thursday evening, July 25, 2013 as a resting point on the way up to the Gilroy Garlic Festival from Orange County. I thought the prices for mid-week for some of the other nicer hotels in Paso Robles were a bit overpriced at $200+ per night, so La Quinta was a nice option with my government discount of $140. I didn't have really high expectations due to the lower price in realtion to some other area hotels, but I was pleasantly surprised once we arrived. The hotel is fairly new, so the decor is beautiful and updated. The common areas were immaculate and very aesthetically pleasing. Nice breakfast buffet area that also offered wine and snacks in the afternoon for guests. Nice outdoor pool area. Plenty of parking, and carts for your luggage.
My room was a king garden tub room that was super-nice; I felt it was comparable to other mid-to-higher end larger hotels. Furniture and fixtures were modern, decor was pleasing, carpet was clean, no stains on walls nor torn wallpaper spots - very well maintained. But the bathroom was the true star of this room - very large with a huge oval garden tub that I literally floated on my back in (there are handles on the insides of the tub to hold yourself down from floating away). Two large adults could comfortably sit facing each other in these tubs. The shower was a large walk in, marble tiled, clear glass door with a tiled seat inside. Granite sink vanity. Floors were immaculately clean as were the tub, shower, toilet, etc. Towels were thick and good quality, not thin and scratchy like some.
The television was a new large flat screen and it worked well (no poor connections, grainy pics or remotes that are slow). There was even a french door that went out to a balcony in my room (although not in my parents' room of the same type). There were chairs and a small table out on the balcony and it overlooked the rolling hills.
I think for those traveling on the 101, the location is perfect - it is right off the 101 at the 46, but it is a few blocks from the freeway off a side-street so there is no noise from the freeway. it was super-quiet here. While there are other motels/hotels right off the 101, they sit directly off the freeway so might be noisy. Many nice restaurants to choose from in the downtown historic district that was just 5 minutes away.
As a picky traveler who doesn't usually like to stay in hotels/motels (I'm a a slight germaphobe, picky about decor and very noise-sensitive), the La Quinta in Paso Robles was wonderful, in my opinion. I would definitely stay here again. Sure, there were some nice boutique hotels out in the winery areas in the $250 per night range, but for one night and just passing through, the La Quinta was just great and actually much more than expected. I was very comfortable here and would definitely return if in the area again.
