Is Paso Robles Worth Visiting?
Paso Robles is an incredible destination to visit. Located in the middle of California’s Central Coast, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Paso Robles is perfect for a weekend getaway.
Experience the beauty of Paso Robles. Taste delicious wine with jaw-dropping panoramic views of rolling hills. It truly feels like a slice of Tuscany in California.
Where to Stay in Paso Robles
When choosing a hotel, the first thing that I usually look for is location. To me, location is everything. However, Paso Robles is one of those places where I would say that you don’t have to worry as much about the location of your hotel.
Most of the wineries are spread out and in different regions, so you will be driving no matter what. A lot of the hotels may be located off an exit off of the highway. However, you will still be within 5 to 10 minutes of downtown and 15 to 30 minutes from most wineries.
Downtown Paso Robles
If it is your first time visiting Paso Robles or if you prefer to be closer to a lively atmosphere, Downtown Paso Robles may be the perfect location for you to book your hotel.
Downtown offers boutique shopping, farm-to-table restaurants, art galleries, and wine tasting rooms. It is a charming town, with brick sidewalks and historic buildings that line the streets. Even if you are not staying Downtown, you should absolutely make it a point to visit or make dinner reservations at one of the many delicious restaurants.

Wine Country Planning Guide
🗓 What is the best time to visit? Wine tasting in California is always a good idea! However, my personal favorite time to visit wine country is in the spring. ☀️
You will have gorgeous weather, fewer crowds, wildflowers blooming, and more affordable accommodations.
🚗 Should I rent a car? Yes, if you plan on staying more than a night in Napa or Sonoma, I suggest you rent a car.
