Front desk staff wasn't friendly and exchanged no pleasantries. I had mentioned that we were on our honeymoon in our reservation, but no mention of that was made. The staff spent more time warning us about the stinky water and fumes we should expect from the mineral springs-fed bath tub. When we got to the room, it was the top floor, but the view was of a wall and across the roof of the building. The tub had disgusting stains in it, presumably from the mineral water. The main wall, over the bed, had mismatched shades of white paint from a poor job of patching an A/C unit installation or repair. And the stink! OMG, they weren't kidding about that, so we went back to the front desk to request a room without a hot springs tub. We got one, much, much smaller than the first room and they offered us no discount on the rate. This room was unbearably hot. The pilot light for the gas-fed fireplace seemed to keep the room extra hot. The A/C worked terribly and was loud. We never got comfortable in this room and were not impressed. The next morning, we thought we might get a cup of coffee in the lobby, but there was none to be had without paying. (We couldn't even get a book of matches to light some candles we had brought along; they suggested we walk down to the gas station to buy a lighter at midnight.) They didn't clean our room until well into the afternoon. Upon checkout, after two nights, we inquired about the room rate, since the room was so much smaller than the one for which we had originally reserved. Finally they admitted we could pay less and also added in the AAA discount, which, of course, had been part of our reservation in the first place. We will never stay in this hotel again. It may have the downtown location (though that is of dubious value as half of the store fronts in Paso Robles are sadly empty) and it has some history, but otherwise there is nothing worth recommending about the Paso Robles Inn.
