Paso Robles, CA: Paso Robles Inn

El Paso de Robles, or "Pass of the Oaks," was originally part of a 25,000-acre Spanish land grant that was purchased by James and Daniel Blackburn in 1857, and was a rest stop for travelers of the Camino Real trail.

Known for its mineral hot springs, Franciscan priests from neighboring Mission San Miguel constructed the first mineral baths in the area. Pioneer settlers to the area would later establish cattle ranches, orchards, dairy farms, and vineyards.

The first Paso Robles Hot Springs Hotel was built in 1864 right next to the natural artesian hot springs well. In 1891, the old hotel was replaced with a magnificent new all-brick hotel. Taking more than one million bricks and two years to build, the new hotel became known worldwide as a health resort.

Situated in the heart of Paso Robles, among the quaint boutiques and antique storefronts, gourmet restaurants, wine tasting rooms, olive tasting rooms, wine bars, and art galleries, lies The Paso Robles Inn. Now home to 98 guest rooms, Traditional Guest Rooms, Queen Garden Fireplace Rooms, Deluxe Spa Rooms and Jesse James Two-Room Suites, The Inn has been named as one of the Historic Hotels of America. The popular Paso Robles Steakhouse, outdoor heated pool and spa, the lovely garden setting, perfect for a leisurely stroll, and spa indulgences from The Spa Central Coast, are among the amenities that keep guests returning.

Upon check in, guests will find the Deluxe Spa rooms and Jesse James Two-Room Suites as honest, genuine to the countrified setting, spacious and serene, cast with a rustic fireplace, and graced with a spa-like bathroom. To each guests delight, positioned on the terrace, is offered the soothing thermal waters of the Paso Robles mineral springs in your own private spa tub. Draw the terrace drapes and sink into the healing waters, in complete seclusion.

The Paso Robles Inn continues to be a cornerstone in the hub of Paso Robles, the perfectly idyllic destination for the busiest and most celebrated time of year, the 2012 Harvest Wine Weekend, October 19 - 21. Harvest in Paso Robles Wine Country is a time filled with the scent of ripened fruit, scenic drives through rolling hills of red and gold, and the culmination of a year of hard work; the anticipation of a new vintage.

Indulge in a wide array of individual events at area wineries in the vineyards, on the crush pad, and in the tasting rooms, including vineyard tours, special tastings, and winemaker dinners. Take part in a blending seminar, or jump feet first into a two-ton grape stomp. Explore more than 120 winery events, as Paso Robles bustles with excitement to welcome the new vintage.
