Very clean, breakfast was good, the staff during breakfast was very friendly, at the lobby a little they were a little rude but still kind.
It was just difficult to find the hotel at night.

I want to thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. I am truly sorry that my staff was rude. I have already talked to them in regards to this, and I can assure you it will not happen again. That sort of behavior is unacceptable. Thank you again, and I do hope that you will give us another chance to provide great service to you.

If you have any questions or would like to speak with me directly please call 805-466-4449.

Sincerely,

We stayed here during Labor Day weekend to celebrate our birthdays by visiting Paso Robles wine country. Neither of us had been to this area before, and we were looking for somewhere comfortable and convenient to the Paso Robles wineries without breaking the bank on the holiday weekend (since we only booked about 2 weeks out). We were originally looking in Morro Bay and Cambria, but ultimately chose to go with Atascadero to avoid Paso Robles prices but still be close to the downtown area and the many wineries.

The Best Western Plus Colony Inn was a very pleasant surprise. It was about a 10 minute drive to downtown Paso Robles, and no more than 20 minutes from even the furthest winery out that we visited (Justin). Our room was larger than average, king sized bed, overlooked the pool, and had a couch (fold-out), flat screen tv, and refridgerator. The A/C was quite useful as it was very hot that weekend, and the room and hotel were clean, and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was great too, and much-needed with a lot of wine tasting on our agenda. Our favorite part: making our own fluffy waffles every morning!

Is this the place to stay for a romantic retreat where you can indulge in an opulent room and all sorts of crazy ammenities? No. But, for us, it was comfortable, affordable, and most importantly - convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. Dinner in Templeton, Paso Robles Wineries, day trip to Hearst Castle, restaurants and shops in downtown Paso Robles...all very close and easy to get to. What we saved on costs of our room, we were able to spend on doing things and going places....much more valuable to us overall.

If you're looking for something close to everything you'd want to see and do in the Paso area, somewhere safe, clean, and comfortable, and somewhere that won't cost an arm and a leg to stay...I'd recommend this inn to you. When we return to the area, I'm certain we'll stay here again. It's an unbeatable value for the price, and super convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the pool might be quieter, but we had no trouble with noise with the windows shut.

We had an executive room for two adults and three children. It was roomy. It was clean. It was a good sleep.

Breakfast is complimentary and has a good selection.
I recommend!

Stayed here for two nights while attending graduation activities in San Luis Obispo. It was a quick 20 minute drive into SLO, making it very convenient.
The room was comfortable, but had some maintainence issues. The in-room refrigerator froze the water and soda we put into it the first night. We reported that to the front desk and supposedly housekeeping looked into the problem, but water froze the second night too. Tub spout and toilet base need caulk, Internet jack didn't work, glue residue (4x6) was on the mirror from a liquid soap dispenser that had been removed. The fan speed on the room ventilation had one speed (high) and was quite loud.
Hotel staff was very pleasant and expressed concern about the problems we raised. Continental breakfast was good and well stocked. Grounds and pool were very inviting. Decor inside was nice too. We had two queen beds. One was comfortable but squeeked a lot. The other was quite hard. Plenty of pillows. Down-like comforter was a bit warm. Another (lighter) blanket option would have been nice.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel, which is conveniently located off of the highway. The room was clean an quiet. The pool and hot tub were clean and fun. The breakfast was good and a nice added bonus.

A bit overpriced simply because it's near the wine region of Paso Robles, otherwise it's just a basic OK budget motel. Nothing much to do in Atascadero, we had to drive several miles even to find a place to have dinner, finally found a Coco's. I'd recommend it only if you can't afford to stay in Paso Robles. The waffles at breakfast were nice and at least there was free internet.

We just returned from Paso Robles for the ZinFest weekend. We spent two nights at the Best Western Colony Inn and it met all of our expectations. Relatively quiet location, nice clean rooms, nice pool/hot tub and decent breakfast. Kudos to Dennis, the desk clerk this weekend. He went out of his way to direct us to some new wineries. All in all, it was a nice stay (despite the rain!!).
Rooms were small/medium size, but with a nice chair with ottomon for reading. Bed was just OK....somewhat hard, but plenty of pillows.
I especially enjjoyed access to the health club just across the parking lot.
