"Beautiful room"
Room was beautiful. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. Just dropped off son at the best college ever, Cal Poly. Had a wonderful time. Breakfast was great, plenty of choices of breakfast items. Looking forward to our next visit.

Everything about this hotel is awesome. If it was located in San Francisco or New York it would cost five times as much per night. Best place to stay if you are touring the Paso Robles wine country.

"If your close stay here!"
If your anywhere near San Luis Obispo stay here! This was an amazing hotel with every detail taken care of. Great water pressure, very clean, very quick staff and courteous! Everything you expect to go wrong with a hotel stay, was right. The bed was a little soft for my taste but it's better than sleeping on a board.

"Loved This Hotel"
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Its a beautiful hotel. The only thing I would mention is that we were hyped on the good breakfast we were going to have the next day and there was only breads/pastries, fruit, and hard boiled eggs. I was hoping for scrambled eggs and a meat. But other than that, everything was great.

"Highly recommend"
The hotel is beautiful and the service was exceptional. Lauren, the Front Desk Clerk was very helpful and personable. Breakfast was good and the extended hours were very much appreciated. It's a shame the hotel does not have a current restaurant tenant, that would have been so much more convenient than looking for a restaurant every night for dinner. Overall it was a wonderful stay. The beds are incredibly comfortable. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

"Looking Forward to Another Stay"
We enjoyed our one night get-a-way and would definitely stay again. One night was not long enough to relax and take in all this beautiful hotel and local surrounding have to offer...sadly, we were unable to experience the Jacuzzi tub(next time). Maybe check in time could be made earlier.

"Fabulous and Gracious"
This is a hidden gem! We have stayed in many hotels worldwide and this one has a lot of class. The hotel staff is gracious and happy to serve. It's obvious that they love working here. The hotel was built in 1921 (I think)and it was recently renovated. All of the necessary things (air conditioning, bathrooms, dual pane windows, carpeting, etc.) are crisp and modern while retaining the heritage of the hotel. The woodwork is gorgeous and the rooms are absolutely wonderful. Good food is within walking distance. We will certainly be staying here again.

"Old classic in the heart of Atascadero"
Enjoyed our stay at The Carlton. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was large, well-appointed, and quite comfortable. The hotel and room were both clean and nicely maintained. Parking was right across the street. The main knock on the hotel is that there is no on-premises restaurant, bar, or cafe -- nothing. Also, there is is very little within walking distance.

We were pleasantly surprised at the architectural beauty of the hotel. After a hard day of travel, we were pleasantly surprised to receive a free upgrade. The room was amazing with a beautiful luxurious bathroom. Our whole experience was absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough about the beauty of this hotel. The only negative is there is no food facility within the hotel, however there were plenty of cute little cafés and restaurants walking distance

"Exceptionally lovely hotel"
Our stay at the Carlton far exceeded our expectations. This lovely hotel demonstrates careful attention to detail on the part of staff and management. Beautifully elegant and clean lobby with what look like artificial books to establish ambiance but are actual books that you could and would read. The young gentleman at the front desk who checked us in was elegantly well-mannered with just the right intonations of courtesy. My husband and I are very sensitive to smells and sometimes older places can smell moldy or chemically but we were both very pleased that the Carlton had no smell whatsoever. Our room was exceptionally clean and well-stocked. Small touches like an extra blanket and a lighted make-up mirror provide evidence that the staff is very thoughtful of any needs that visitors may have. The bed was heavenly: quality bed linens and ample plush pillows situated on a spacious and exactly not too hard-not too soft mattress. In all of our interactions with the staff and management they demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and courtesy. We highly recommend this lovely hotel and look forward to our return.

"Pricey But Comfy"
This a great hotel for comfort... There were a couple drawbacks.... After coming in late at night from a long driving day, the town was closed up, and other than vending machines we were surprised to learn that there were no other options for food in the morning which was surprising. A continental breakfast would be the perfect addition to make this the absolute perfect place.... But there was none. Too bad, as they have a beautiful rooftop patio with tables and chairs perfect for for casual dining!! A little pricey for not having any food options. The staff was very courteous, the hotel rooms were amazing in terms of comfort. There was a bar two doors down playing really loud rock and roll.... Which ordinarily I don't mind but at midnight - 1 a.m. after driving all day, it was not pleasant! The comfort level, 5 stars

Wonderful hotel. Stayed here with my daughter while visiting several colleges. Will definitely go back. I was surprised that it only received three stars--it should have been four. The bedroom and bathroom were very nice, spacious, very well-appointed and on par with many four-star hotels I've stayed in. We had a quiet room on the second floor with a french door that opened onto a patio courtyard, where we enjoyed lunch brought in from the excellent place next door.
