Rates include a chef-created multi-course breakfast. Add a special touch by ordering champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, or roses for your room.

California - The HammerSky Inn
HammerSky Inn in Paso Robles rests in a secluded vineyard with picturesque views of rolling hills and lines of vines.

In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
