Bike Lane Inn

749 Gough Ave. , Templeton, CA 93465 USA (Show map)


Close to dozens of wineries, great restaurants, spas and salons. Cycle to wineries, walk to Main Street, or relax and enjoy the view from our home in the middle of Templeton. The Bike Lane Inn is a great starting point for touring the scenic vineyards of Templeton and Paso Robles. Comfortable, affordable and fun. On a quiet residential street, only two short blocks to the Saturday Farmer’s Market and summer concerts in the park.

Probably best value in San Luis Obispo County

4.2 on August 24, 2015

This small, centrally located inn puts you a comfortable drive away from just about every city in San Luis Obispo County, while paying less than you would anywhere for this level of amenities.

Relaxation at its best!

We were only in town for a day (wine tasting of course!), but needed a place to stay for the night. We booked both rooms at the Bike Lane Inn. Elaine and Scott were the BEST! We arrived early, checked in and decided to sit out on the guest patio and have our lunch. The views are spectacular! We filled the day with wine tasting (including recommendations from our hosts) and returned late afternoon for some wonderful conversation, dinner, playing of games, etc. What a relaxing time we had! The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and welcoming. The silence in the evening was amazing. We almost didn't get to sleep because we didn't hear the traffic of the city! In the morning, we were cheerfully greeted by Elaine as she presented us with blueberry breads, coffee, juices, etc. All four of us sat in the guest area and chatted about our stay and upcoming days in the area. Elaine joined us and truly took an interest in where we were headed next. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Bike Lane Inn again. Both Elaine and Scott are wonderful hosts and the Inn is as welcoming as they are! Thank you both! We'll be back!

Great experience!!

Great place to stay

We had a great stay at the Bike Lane Inn. Scott and Elaine made us feel welcome and gave us some great tips on what to do and see in the area. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. They made us a delicious breakfast. We walked to town both evenings we stayed and found it very quaint. We will definitely stay again.

7 States in 10 Days

I had the pleasure of meeting Elaine and Scott on the 3rd night of my 10 day 7 State Motorcycle adventure. I was later arriving than I'd hoped because I stopped in San Francisco to have lunch with friends. ...Breakers to Bay madness everywhere turned into 5 Hours. No complaints though! Elaine graciously met me in the drive and showed me the beautiful accommodations. I couldn't fully appreciate them until the morning when I walked onto the deck off my room! The early morning view was stunning. The coffee was a welcome treat and breakfast and chat was one of the reasons I choose B&B. The home is quiet, surrounded by beautiful nature, gardens and tranquility. Thanks Elaine and Scott!

"THE" Most Wonderful Hosts

Scott and Elaine could not have been more welcoming. I have stayed in many B&B's and this was by far the best one ever. I would go back just for the breakfast! If you want great value and truly wonderful hosts, stay at the Bike Lane inn. If you are a cyclist, look know further as they can share with you esxcellent local knowledge for riding. Don't miss the Bike Lane Inn. Dave S.

Best Stay Ever

Absolutely outstanding, The breakfast was over the top. The hosts, Scott & Elaine were fantastic. The room (Merlot) was spotless very roomy and the bed, well one of the best nights sleep we've ever had away from home. The view from the front patio looks out over Templeton with the hills in the distance, truly a million $$ view. The lounge is spacious and a great place to relax. I clicked 5 stars but the Bike Lane really deserves 6. Looking for a home away from home...this is the place to stay.

Tucked Away Gem

5 on April 28, 2015

I stayed her while passing through with business. Most of the nearby hotels were overpriced in Paso Robles and lacked any character whatsoever. I loved this place! The owners, very kind and welcomed me as I approached. The breakfast prepared and served beautifully in presentation and flavor. The room and detached bathroom were quiet and my own. Cleanliness was present everywhere. Nice touches in the amenities were also provided by the owners. The home was in a private, quiet and serene area.. a tucked away little gem of a place which was so welcoming! I will definitely stay there again, business or for a personal get away as well. The area is close to downtown with many unique restaurant and shops. Must see to experience.

Outstanding food, service and value

Outstanding food, service and value (I couldn't click outstanding in the GUI). If we ever return to the area, staying here again is a no brainer.

Loved our time at the Bike Lane Inn! Scott and Elaine are always so kind and knowledgeable. We always stay here when visiting the area. Try the 10 mile wine tasting bike loop! It's so much fun!!!
