Where to Sip & Stay in Paso Robles Wine Country

Looking for where to stay and sip in Paso Robles? We’ve paired the top Paso Robles wine country hotels with not to miss Paso Robles wineries.

There are plenty of reasons to visit Paso Robles, but the top one has to be for the wine country.
When you’re choosing where you stay for any wine country getaway you want to look for a place that will enhance the overall experience. A few things I personally consider when selecting a wine country hotel included…

  • Its proximity to wineries. The last thing you want to do is spend unnecessary time driving to and from your hotel to wineries. Try to select one that’s nearby wineries – or on a winery – you want to visit.
  • What food options does it have onsite – or nearby. Remember you need to eat a hearty, protein filled breakfast before you set out for a day of wine tasting. Being able to grab a picnic lunch to take with you is also very helpful. Not to mention having a place you can easily get dinner to top off your day.
  • Where to sip and swirl at the end of the day. Most wine tasting rooms close about 4pm, leaving you with a few hours before dinner to sit back and sip in the sunset. You should always enjoy a wine country sun set…so find a place that allows for that.


With these considerations in mind, I’ve broken down the following list of Paso Robles hotels based on their location and amenities. With location as one of my main priorities, this list includes Paso Robles hotels on vineyards, because nothing can enhance a wine country get away like waking up among the vines. I’ve also included downtown Paso Robles hotels since staying in a more urban, downtown setting can be just as amazing and provide more options for restaurants, local tasting rooms and shopping. When it comes to Paso Robles, the cute, little downtown is an awesome place to stay.

Wine Country Stays in Paso Robles

It’s one thing to visit the wine country, it’s another to immerse yourself in it. Staying onsite at a working vineyard is the perfect way to do just that.

JUST Inn at JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery
Renowned for crafting premium Bordeaux-style blends, JUSTIN Winery was named American Winery of the Year for 2015 by Wine Enthusiast. The winery is a destination unto itself with a three-suite Inn tucked behind the restaurant and tasting room, all surrounded by vineyards. A stay at the Inn includes breakfast delivered to your door and a winery tour and tasting, but don’t miss the restaurant’s five-course, farm-to-table, wine-pairing dinner. Afterward, take a glass of wine outside to the concrete-and-glass gas fire pits lining the edge of the patio. With the dark night skies above, this quiet, remote vineyard turn out an expansive blaze of stars once the sun sets.

Other GREAT Paso Robles Hotels to Consider

La Bellasera Hotel and Suites

Influenced by Mediterranean and Italian architecture and surrounded by landmarks such as Hearst Castle and Lake Nacimiento, this 60-room hotel makes for a perfect getaway in the Paso Robles wine country. Casually elegant is the best way to describe La Bellasera Hotel and Suites, its rooms and amenities. The hotel features oversized rooms and suites, an onsite restaurant, spa, and is conveniently located close to many of Paso Robles’ wineries.

In the mornings, you may find it hard to leave your guest room to hit the wine trails. With pillow-top mattresses, custom furnishing, a cozy fireplace, a whirlpool spa and exterior patios you may want to do your own wine tastings right here. But, we do insist you hit at least a few wineries outside the hotel or at least visit the hotel’s Enoteca Restaurant & Bar. The truffle fries are highly recommended and pair wonderfully with a glass of Prosecco or Chardonnay.
