Our Desperado Stay

4.6 on January 06, 2017

Great Anniversary stay for my wife and I. The room was perfect. We stayed in the Desperado Room with a King bed (very comfortable). Very tasteful decor and furniture etc. Tom(owner) is a great guy and lots fun to talk to. He is also a fabulous cook. The presentation and food were excellent. Thanks Tom!! We will most certainly see you soon. Jim & Cam

Relaxing Oasis in Paso Robles Wine Country

4.4 on April 22, 2016

The decor was modern Mediterranean and the view was spectacular. Tom's breakfast, which he personally prepares, is fabulous Next time I will take his winery tour which seems to be a nice touch at a reasonable price. Recommend you try Desperado Inn if you are a wine lover..

Incredible Property

4.0 on January 03, 2016

We were passing through Paso Robles on a trip up the coast and glad that Tom would welcome a single night stay (his summer rules are a little different). I accidentally booked the wrong night and he was nice enough to allow us to change the reservation to one night earlier. Wine and cheese upon arrival was a nice touch and the location of the Inn is smack in the middle of wine country, so a perfect base of operations. Would love to come back in warmer weather to experience the great pool and grounds.

About the innkeepers

I started staying at B&B's while in the Military, and decided that maybe one day I would like to develop one in an area that had the right soil and weather for a boutique winery. I spent 35 years in the corporate world and have been interested in cooking and wine for many years. 20 years ago I discovered Paso Robles and decided to retire here when my daughter attended Cal Poly and I got to now the area. Paso Robles is a great lace to live and work. Welcome!
