The Casitas of Arroyo Grande Hotel Review: This charming B&B sits atop a seven-acre estate overlooking the vineyards and hillsides of the central coast near San Luis Obispo. Three private casitas are connected by a central courtyard, but guests can also gather in the Great Room where a large fireplace, piano and leather couches create a comfortable family-style living room. The bedrooms are cottage-like and reminiscent of Tuscan and Spanish villas with custom tiles, natural wood beams and white stucco fireplaces. This small and personal getaway that is seemingly far from civilization is surprisingly up-to-date with technology, as all casitas are equipped with free wireless Internet, HDTVs and iPod docking stations. Hospitable hosts also pamper guests with breakfast delivered to their rooms or patios, ensuring that special requests are taken into account, as well. With no shortage of day trip activities only a drive away, guests may venture to the beach, visit nearby Hearst Castle or go wine tasting at any of the twenty wineries in close proximity.
