EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Paso Robles is a great town, but we stayed at the hotel from hell there! Stay clear of Economy Inn, on 2218 Spring Street in Paso Robles! It had vacancy, and as tired travelers, we didn't check it out before staying over night, BIG mistake!! Dirty towels, dust and cobwebs everywhere, rooms hadn't seen a paint job in years, worst of all, on top of the only vanity light in the bathroom, that worked, was a drug users syringe!! Did I mentioned ants in the bed, and a loose toilet ,that rocked like a rocking chair, while being used!!! Hope fully you choose a nicer hotel there!! Bjorn from San Diego
