Top 10 Value Hotels
Central Coast (CA)
A personable motel near the Paso Robles wine country.
Conveniently just off Hwy. 101, this heart-warming courtyard motor inn has been owned and operated by the same family for more than three decades. This difference between it and nearby chain properties shows. Although it's not as grandiose, it has a welcoming atmosphere that sets it apart. The remarkably spacious rooms are scattered among low-lying buildings. Each room has a refrigerator, coffee maker, telephone, cable TV, work desk, sofabed, and reclining chair, plus complimentary morning newspaper service. The flowery grounds are meticulously kept. There's a heated whirlpool spa in the gazebo and a large outdoor pool that's a favorite with families, as well as a miniature golf course and putting green. A fenced-in parking lot provides additional security. The reasonable rates include afternoon cookies and fruit and muffins in the morning. Guest laundry and in-room massage services are available for an added fee.
