“PLUS - this one is good!”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

As you know, not all Best Westerns are good! That is the one advantage Holiday Inn Express has over BW. They are more consistent no matter where you go! However, this Paso Robles was clean, affordable and had a TERRIFIC pool! Breakfast coupon was provided for the diner next door - yummy! They only give you $5 per person but share an entree - it is plenty big for 2 people. We stayed here for 2 nights and I'm glad it was this BW as opposed to some of the others we stayed at! Would stay here again when we visit!

This is a nice hotel that was probably at one time a very nice hotel. We loved the place and would definitely stay there again. From looking at the hotel exterior and location, you know it must have been a real looker when it was first built. It has a retro, Rat Pack sort of look to it, that added to its charm. The rooms are very nice, clean, and roomy. Our room had a large refrigerator and a desk and very comfortable seating, which isn't always the case with hotels. We were just passing through Paso Robles, so we didn't have time to do any wine touring, but I can see why the Black Oak would be a good location from which to do so. Right out the front door are all sorts of restaurants. Don't miss Margie's for breakfast. It's a real throw back to diners of yesteryear (and you get a little discount card from the Black Oak management). Margie's food is good and abundant.

Stayed here with my Mom and this place as usual delivered. We each had a king room that was spacious with a jacuzzi tub. The room also had a sleeper sofa in it and a desk and an easy chair. This is definitely a Best Western Plus. The room has a refrigerator and coffee maker. There's a separate vanity area from the bathroom. It was great that the room was nice and cool when I checked in on a 106F day.
There is a restaurant on the property. It's a diner called Margie's. If you like diner food and lots of it, then this place is great, otherwise there's a couple other places within easy walking distance of the hotel. A burger place, a taco place, and a Starbucks. If you do go to Margie's for breakfast, make sure you stop by the front desk of the hotel to get the $5 off coupon.
Check-in was very easy and they worked with me to keep both rooms on my credit card, but have the second room in my Mom's name for when she checked in. It was an easy central place just off of 101 at 46E to start our wine tasting for the area.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the front office don't get as much highway noise.

Second visit since May, both for two nights and if possible it got better. Paso was at record high temperatures but the service was still outstanding. Room was cleaned early and everything in working order. Enjoyed the pool and the breakfast at Maggies.

We stayed one night and found it very comfy except we didn't read the note under the dryer until morning telling us how to turn off the bright light...oops! Follow those instructions and your stay will be more enjoyable. We had a room away from the street and it was surprisingly quiet. Would stay again!

We were stopping in Paso and found this hotel at the last minute. Because of our late booking all that was available was a smoking room. The room was clean and there is actually a small jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The location is ideal (1 mile from Paso Robles downtown and literally across the street from the Mid State Fair). Had a great time and the "free" parking to the fair was a plus. There is a minibar in the room and the room itself is very large and spacious.

Room Tip: Only issue I had was that the rooms housed smokers even though the signs on the building say "n...

We stayed during the fair which is a very busy time and had a problem a loud guest using profanity around children. This was taken care of right away and the staff checked back to make sure we had a good stay. When you have a clean room with great service it makes for a great getaway. The coupon toward breakfast was a nice change and it gave us a chance to choose how much and what kind of breakfast we wanted.
