1. “The perfect staycation” by @vanessaolguin
What We Love: A longtime #CentralCoaster and one of our favorite locals, Vanessa “had the perfect little staycation” at the Paso Robles Inn last week, according to her Instagram caption! This post just goes to show that you don’t have to go far to enjoy paradise when you’re lucky enough to live on California’s Central Coast!
With a private balcony, deluxe spa tub, and local wine available to enjoy in our Winery Themed Spa Rooms, you can immerse yourself in the many wineries of Paso Robles without ever having to leave your room as you unwind and relax in our wine country guest rooms. We’re happy to see Vanessa taking advantage of our cozy and convenient Paso Robles wine hotel, and invite you to do the same!

2. “So dreamy” by @karlibuckley and @emilion_bucks
What We Love: This sweet photo was shared by both Karli and Emily Buckely, a married Lesbian couple who run a LGBTQ+ Travel, Fitness, and Lifestyle blog, and who we were lucky enough to host at the Inn at the Cove last week for Karli’s birthday celebration. Through their travels, Karli and Emily hope to inform, inspire, and encourage people, and we are honored to have been a part of that honorable pursuit. To top it all off, Karli and Emily shared the sweetest posts during their stay that make us wish they could have stayed a little longer!
Karli wrote, “waking up this morning at the Inn at the Cove was the perfect way to start my birthday. The view from our balcony was so dreamy, and the sound of the waves crashing into the cliffs was even more relaxing. Thank you so much for hosting us plus Charlie the Dog. If you’re in the Pismo Beach area, stopping here is a must!” *cue our hearts melting*
While Emily wrote, “Thank you Inn at the Cove for hosting our little family… it’s not every day you find a hotel that’s gay AND dog-friendly.” Thank YOU, ladies, for allowing us the opportunity to stand strong with Pride! ❤️
3. ☀️ by @cruisingfamily
What We Love: This adorable shot by The Cruising Family enjoying the swings in Avila Beach just oozes all those sunshiney, happy, summer beach vibes that we crave all year long! The best part of summertime is that school’s out, the days are longer, and the weather is warmer—giving you the chance to soak up as much family fun in the sun as you want!

4. “Catching rays” by @momohammi
What We Love: Instagrammer Morgan is “catching the rays in whatever way [she] can” with one of our favorite summertime activities: a sunset hike in beautiful San Luis Obispo! If you’re looking to experience the Central Coast like the locals do, put some miles on your hiking boots and work your way up one of the many peaks to overlook our 80 miles of rugged California coastline. We promise the view at the top is worth the sweat! Click here to learn about some of our favorite trails.
And the winner is… @juliesendspeace65
What We Love: We already feel more at ease just looking at this photo from Julie’s oceanfront room at Avila Lighthouse Suites in Avila Beach. There’s nothing like waking up to hear the waves lap against the shore right outside your window—and lucky for Julie, she can enjoy just that again as our winner! As her prize, Julie will enjoy a FREE 1-night stay at the Martin Resorts property of her choosing. Congratulations Julie, keep on #CentralCoasting!
