Paso Robles Inn installs new exterior signage
–The Paso Robles Inn has new exterior signage. Southpaw Signs put the new signs up Tuesday. The new, long sign in front now reads, “The Steakhouse.”
Southpaw Signs is based in Oceano, but installs custom signage all over Central California. The new sign is metal. The background is pounded copper with indentations to give it texture.
The original El Paso de Robles Inn was built in 1891 at a cost of $160,000. That palatial building burned to the ground in 1940. The current building was completed in 1942.
The ballroom on the north side of the property survived the fire and was restored and renovated after Martin Resorts acquired the property in 1999. Martin Resorts also tapped the natural hot springs and piped the hot sulfur spring water into individual rooms.
The Paso Robles Inn is listed as a Historic Hotel of America.
