The Best Western hotel in Paso Robles caters for north-south travelers along US 101 as well as those visiting the over 200 nearby wineries in the sunny foothills of the Santa Lucia mountains. The Black Oak is just off the highway at the 24th Street exit and a few blocks away from the main road through Paso Robles (Spring St), close enough to walk to shops & restaurants there, though the hotel has its own restaurant on site - Margie's Diner, open for breakfast, lunch & diner. The nearest bar is right next door. The 110 rooms are on 2 floors, in the standard motel design linked by exterior corridors, though accommodation is spacious and modern, and the hotel has an above average pool area, embellished by trees, tropical plants & flowers. Other guest amenities are a hot tub, children's playground, sauna, guest laundry and a barbeque area.
