History of the Paso Robles Inn

A proud member of the Historic Hotels of America, the Paso Robles Inn has been a prestigious landmark in Paso Robles for more than a century.  Visitors have come to Paso Robles to seek the healing and relaxing qualities of the hot spring’s sulfur mineral waters, and enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery that allowed them to relax and escape everyday life. To understand the rich history of the Paso Robles Inn we’ve created a timeline of major events below!

1797- The Salinan Indians traveled to what is now the center of Paso Robles to use the hot springs which they referred to as “Heaven’s Spot” due to the curative powers they experienced from the sulfur springs.

1813- During the Mission era, the El Camino Real was the main route used by travelers as they went from mission to mission and passed directly through the land to become known as Rancho El Paso de Robles. The mission’s padres often used the hot springs hoping to find cures to a wide range of ailments.

1864- The central location of Paso Robles (halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco) made it a desirable place to stop while traveling. Stage lines began frequent scheduled stops in Paso Robles which increased visitors to the area and word quickly spread about the hot spring’s sulfur mineral water and the beauty of Paso Robles. This created a demand for better hotel accommodations. The Hot Springs Hotel was built at the El Paso de Robles stage stop and featured a hot mineral spring’s bath house.

1886- The City of El Paso de Robles is incorporated as a city by Blackburn and James. The Train arrives in Paso Robles making it easier for people who once struggled to Paso Robles in hopes of finding a cure from the therapeutic hot spring’s mineral waters.

1891- The new El Paso de Robles Hotel opens for business. The new hotel was three stories high and 285 feet long, it was by far the most imposing structure in the Paso Robles area. The new hotel offered an improved hot springs plunge bath as well as 32 individual bathrooms.

1906- A new hot springs bathhouse is completed. Decorated with marbles and ceramic tile, it was one of the most elegant in the nation, rivaled only by similar facilities in Europe.

1913- The world’s most well-known concert pianist and composer, Ignace Paderewski, visited the Paso Robles Hotel to treat his arthritis with the hotel’s mineral hot springs. During the next 30 years, the hotel was visited by other notables, including US president Herbert Hoover, actors Bob Hope, John Wayne, and Judy Garland. Major League baseball teams, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox, used Paso Robles as a spring training home. They stayed at the hotel and soaked in the mineral hot springs to soothe aches and pains.

1940- Fire consumes the Paso Robles Hotel. Within months after the blaze, plans for a new hotel to be built on the site were drawn up. In 1942 construction was complete and the new Paso Robles Inn, designed to accommodate motoring travelers, opened for business.


 1942- Construction was complete and the new Paso Robles Inn, designed to accommodate motoring travelers, opened for business.


 1999- The Martin Family purchases the Inn. The Martins embarked on a multi-phase plan to revitalize the Inn. Their first project was to have the sulfur hot spring’s mineral well re-drilled and the famous therapeutic natural mineral springs water were made available in private tubs in select guest rooms.

2003- Earthquake shakes Paso Robles. The damage created by the 6.5 earthquake required some new construction at the Inn, including 18 new deluxe spa suites.

Today- The Paso Robles Inn proudly features 98 guest rooms, including Deluxe Spa Rooms and Two-Room Suites that offer soothing hot springs waters in the privacy of your own guest room. The Inn continues to be a favorite among locals and out-of-town guests alike!
