"A welcomed refuge"
Wasn't expecting such a spectacular hotel. Built in the 1920's and recently renovated, its wood-covered charm was a delight. Who does triple-sheeted beds any more??? The Carlton does. We almost didn't want to leave the room with its high ceilings and well appointed bathroom with a separate room for the john, a tub-spa, and a stand-alone shower. Superb! […] The only problem was the television system, which was difficult to work and required a call down to the helpful staff. Good dining was nearby, but we were disappointed that the restaurant in the hotel's first floor had gone out of business. All in all, though, a great place to stay.

"Historical, Boutique Hotel"
The room was very nice and well-kept. This is more of a boutique hotel. It has a nice jacuzzi tub which I really enjoyed. The parking lot is a few hundred feet across the street (safe) so be mindful of that. I was moving a lot of stuff in my car so this made me a bit nervous that the parking lot was not a private one behind the hotel. There are some […] restaurants nearby, walking distance. The only thing that would have made it BETTER is if it had a CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST! For the price it should have included breakfast. The staff at the front was friendly and gave recommendations of where to eat down the street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming with issues"
I only was staying for 1 night. I liked the hotel. I would have given the hotel a 5, if it were not for two problems. The first was the tv. I tried for quite awhile to get the lower channels on the tv. I had no luck. I called the desk and they could not get the tv to get the lower channels. The lady at the desk said sorry. I asked if I could get another […] room. She said yes we have several rooms available. She went to another room and checked to see if this room could get the lower channels. It did, so she came to my room and gave me the new room's key I went to the new room and was happy that I could watch the channels that I wanted to watch. Before the show that I wanted to watch started, I repacked my belongings and I went down to the desk to return the keys to the first room. The lady at the desk was coming up the stairs. She asked me how I liked the room. I told her that I liked the tv, but the other room was better. She agreed. In the morning when I was going to take a shower the hand held sprayer was on a hook that was damaged. It was resting against the wall. When I tried to shower the water was running on the floor. After the shower, I had to use a couple of towels to clean up the water. While I was doing that I realized that maintenance put a triangular block of wood on the tub ledge to keep water from going out of the shower. They told me that there were several room available. Why not upgrade me instead of giving me a downgrade? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful stay and were nicely surprised by the wonderful large room. The bed and pillows were amazing. There was a little glitch the night we stayed in that the cable TV had gone out for the entire area which was no fault of the hotel. The staff, tried to do what they could and were quick to respond. The other item was a guest totally sank […] (flooded) his room so we were awaken by the emergency warning system and sounds of the fire truck. Again, though no fault of the hotel, the staff were very responsive and assuring. It will be perfect when they get someone in to run the restaurant and bar. As it was, our room and the staff was delightful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Great Hotel"
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The room was absolutely beautiful with the most comfortable bed in the world! The bathroom was very nice and well appointed and the staff was great. We would definitely staff here again. The only downside is that there is no restaurant or breakfast offered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just 5-10 min. from major winery roads"
This hotel was fabulous. It was clean and luxurious. It's an old, historic building that is NOT falling apart...far from it. Soooo lovely.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First Class....It would be nice to have the cafe stll thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
upon arriving near 9:00 pm, we were disappointed that there was no where to eat! Although the website leads one to believe the hotel restaurant is open.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Grand hotel reminiscent of early 1900's."
Although the actual building looks older, there is nothing musty or dilapidated about the place. Everything was very tidy and smelled clean and fresh. The bed was absolutely divine. Our stay didn't allow for much exploring of the hotel but that's okay because we will definitely be coming back.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place. Friendly staff. Good location right off the freeway. Rooms are big and very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best bed EVER!"
I called ahead because I was arriving close to 9 pm. The staff member at the front desk greeted me warmly and checked me in in quickly. The lobby was beautiful, the room was well appointed and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel is not described as in Hotel.com"
I would not be staying there in the future. It says that the hotel has a bakery, restaurant and bar. The businesses are no longer there. The clerk says that they closed down last May and has not had a chance the update the internet. A local person there says the businesses closed a couple years ago! There are no restaurant within walking distant. Our […] TV stopped working the second night we were there. We told the heavyset woman clerk about it and she was not nice about it. They later gave us a new room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were really taken with this hotel. What a gem. We never would have guessed there was something this nice in Atascadero. Loved the historic feel and the beautiful room we had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful historic hotel"
We had no expectations and were very pleased to see the location and beautiful Hotel Carlton. The bed was comfortable, nicely decorated and quiet. Only complaint was internet, I wasn't able to access and work is that was disappointing. We were informed that the hotel is in midst of enhancing their internet so that is good news. We will be back for […] sure! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old But Nice"
The Hotel is old and is in excellent condition. Could use an update of the TV.Genuine Expedia guest review
Anyone who is planning a getaway wine weekend in the Central Coast should start here. The town of Atascadero is charming, and you are perfectly located between Paso wineries and food to the north, San Luis happenings to the south, and Morro Bay to the west. A completely charming hotel with history, I really should keep this secret to myself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Easy access off Hwy 101. We were in town for a fourth of July wedding. The room was very quiet even with fireworks outside. Would stay here again. Reasonably priced compared to other hotels less then 15 miles away. Lots of wineries near-by.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good experience. Will return for sure"
Wonderful hotel. The only regret is that they messed up our reservation so for three people, we got a one-bed room. They did provide a roll-away bed and gave us $30 discount per night. We are happy with everything else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best place to stay"
If you're in the Paso region for wine, there's no better place to stay than the Carlton. Way beyond expectation. The only negative is that they're going through a transition with the bar/restaurant. There is no food ro drink. Feel free to take all you want to your room or the beautiful 2nd floor terrace.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Carlton, A Beautiful Historic Hotel"
We enjoyed our stay. We were just passing through town, so were o.k. that there was not much in the way of a town center. The hotel is beautiful. Our room was very comfortable, clean and more elegant than we expected with a jacuzzi tub that was welcome after a day of hiking. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And it is so close to Pasa Robles, […] that we had no trouble getting from the hotel to some fantastic dinner and wine tasting options. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Easy access to highway, in the middle of downtown"
The stay was great. Good comfort, clean room, ease check in and out. I only stayed a night but I have a great time just walking around the vicinity. Very convenient to restaurant and bars around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful and Elegant"
The Carlton Hotel is an old-style hotel reminiscent of the 1930's but with all of the modern conveniences. The bathrooms are beautiful and big! In our bathroom, there was a glass-walled shower and a spa tub. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The only disappointing thing was that the restaurant in the […] lobby was closed. However, there are many good places to eat within walking distance. Hopefully, the restaurant will reopen soon. The room rates were very reasonable for such a wonderful place! This was the perfect place to spend the night before touring the Hearst Castle. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great place to stay. Corner rooms are bigger, so be sure to ask for them if "spacious" is a must have. Our room had all marble bath with walk in shower and spa tub both. Central patio in the hote; can take coffee therel. Renovated 1914 era hotel - they've kept the ambience but have all the modern amenities. Central to Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, Paso […] Robles. Two hours south of Monterey. Service was friendly and several good restaurants on Atascadero. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful Restored Classic Hotel"
Of our six days in southern California, the Carleton was by far our favorite hotel. It's not a franchise and shows personal taste in its refurbishment. The staff was helpful and friendly. We'd happily stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Older Hotel"
Very clean hotel where everything looks brand new but with an old nostalgic style. Loved this hotel but the bar and restaurant was vacant without proprietorship. Totally unfortunate because I would have completely enjoyed their classy, beautiful lounge with a drink and a place to hang out before bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to friends we were visiting."
Your hotel is beautiful. Have been singing its' praises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel all around. Feels like a luxury hotel without a high price. I've stayed at many hotels and these beds are by far the most comfortable. Well worth it. I'd definitely make a stop in Atascadero again just to stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was so happy when I found you while searching for a nice place to stay en-route to a family event in Visalia. We wanted to enjoy a little beach and a little 'other' of what California is about. When we got there and realized the GEM that you are, it was the highlight of our west coast experience before getting together with the family. Just down the […] road from Paso Robles Wine Country put a rainbow over the trip. We will tell everyone about you, Carlton. Thank you for a star experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel with real charm"
Other than wishing they had an open Lounge/Restaurant I was very happy with the accommodations. It is a beautiful hotel with large comfortable room and beds. I didn't want to leave. I would recommend a stay here for a good place to visit the surrounding vineyards or just get away from the city.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay. Wish we had more time there"
We had a great time. The hotel was perfect and the staff was amazing. Very friendly and informative. The town was also Great. After visiting some vineyards, We enjoyed a free concert in the city park, just a mile from the Carlton. Would definitely stay there again, hopefully for a longer visit next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"old world charm"
very comfortable room at a very reasonable price. Downtown location is not noisy at all and rooms were quiet despite the proximity of Hwy 101. There is no food service in the hotel however several nice restaurants located within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was so impressed with this hotel! It was so spacious, so comfortable and so relaxing! It was the perfect location to walk to numerous eateries. The beds were the most comfortable I've slept in at a hotel. The beautiful hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff at the Carlton were phenomenal! Very helpful with recommendations and went out of their […] way to assist us. This is definitely a place I will go out of my way to stay at in the future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was historically quaint but with modern rooms and amenities. We were surprised at how large and well-appointed the rooms were, especially the bathrooms. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel no longer has a restaurant which may be inconvenient to some and all the surrounding restaurants stop serving around 8:00 in […] the evening...but that is a function of the area. For the price, the hotel was definitively the best of the available options. We were bound for Hearst Castle, which was a very beautiful 45 minute drive away the next morning. We will stay here again our next trip and would highly recommend the hotel to all friends, family and even strangers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Slept like a baby."
I only live ten minutes away but needed a "vacation" from the stress of life. The room was nice and clean and the hotel staff was very nice. The room had a huge jetted tub and luxuriously soft sheets on the most comfortable bed that was the perfect combination of firm and soft. Best sleep ever. Can't wait to come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review

The rooms are very large and clean. Bath size towels and lots of them. The staff is wonderful. Would stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a very excellent hotel. The remodel was wonderfully done, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious at a comparable cost to other hotels at this level in the area. Only negative was lack of good restaurant within reasonable walking distance - hotel restaurant was not open!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Little Gem"
We love this hotel! Our daughter recommended it and booked us 2 nights here for our 50th wedding anniversary trip to the West Coast.

Stayed a couple days with my Dad when we were in the area for a wedding. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations for dining. The beds were the BOMB.

"Great hotel in a quiet little town"
This is a great place to stay if you are visiting the SLO wine country. Made it to several vineyards and firestone brewery. Very close. Had a blastGenuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable, convenient, classy"
Who knew Atascadero was so charming? Loved the City Hall, the lovely park, and Bru Coffee. Too bad the Carlton no longer has its restaurant and bar. Now THAT would be really classy! Because of the missing amenity of the restaurant, our room was way overpriced for the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
