"Lovely, historic hotel!"
Our visit to the Carlton Hotel was much more than we ever expected. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful, the rooms were large and comfortable and the bathrooms were spa like! The rooms reminded us of hotels in large cities such as Chicago and San Francisco. The rooms were clean and were equipped with everything you might need for […] your visit. Unfortunately, we were on our way home as I would have been content to stay and relax at the Carlton for a few days. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beds are awesome - like sleeping in a cloud! Bathroom is great w jacuzzi tub & sep shower & extra towels. Hotel is very upscale, but parking is limited. TV too small & old if that is important. Very near 100s of wineries.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room was beautiful, spacious and impeccably clean (and I'm a germ freak). I didn't want to leave the following day. My husband and I will definitely stay here again! We keep joking that we liked the bathroom in the hotel so much more than the one in our own home. The rooms have recently been renovated and everything was great! We even traveled with […] our toddler and the room was large enough for a pack and play with room to spare. I can't say enough good things about it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for visiting the Wine Area"
We have stayed here before and love this hotel! Freeway close, just a few miles from the Paso wineries or Firestone-Walker Brewery. Take Hwy 41 over to Morro Bay. The hotel is a very well maintained classic old hotel from the 1930s, the rooms are big and comfortable. This hotel was once a popular stopover for Hollywoods elite. Ours had a jacuzzi tub […] and huge shower as well. Very quiet location with a bakery and coffee shop next door. The staff had a good knowledge of local restaurants should you need help finding a place to eat. Something else you don't see much anymore- free parking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean, service great, located close to wine country.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was such a beautiful hotel and very well maintained. Just disappointing that such a nice hotel has no services. You bring up your own luggage and there is no room service at all. We only saw the two front desk girls the entire time we were there. Hopefully the RESTURANT will open some time soon. We will be back though. Oh and parking isn't the b […] est.

"Could be 4 or 5 Stars"
The room was clean and the furnishings were very comfortable, however, we were there during the heat wave when temperatures were in the mid 90's and our room would not down below about 78 degrees and I am being generous. I called the front desk and they said that they could lower it to 68 degrees which never happened. To bad I would have liked to rate […] it better. I wouldn't recommend staying here during the Summer months. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Last minute booking, but I'm so glad I chose The Carlton. Superb Hotel. The only thing I did not like was the parking which was across the street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A very nice place in a great little town in the heart of central wine country. The room was more than I expected for the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautifully restored. Rooms are gorgeous. Marble baths. If TV is your thing, you might be disappointed because they were older but I didn't care as I don't really watch it. It's a bummer, there's no restaurant but I guess the volume wasn't there yet because they closed last year. There is a little bakery next door where you can get coffee, pastries […] and breakfast sandwiches but don't go if you're in a hurry. Only one person doing everything. Overall, a beautiful hotel and a great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I must say I was surprised!! What a wonderful place, one of the finer Hotels I've been in in the cenral coast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating of our special needs. The room was very comfortable. We will definitely consider the Carlton Hotel the next time we are in the Paso Robles area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice building. Room was clean. Absolutely no amenities in hotel. Not even a vending machineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was huge, spotless, fabulous linens, antique furniture. Staff is pleasant and helpful, low key and tasteful. My second stay and I will go back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This was our second visit to your beautiful hotel."
We chose to stay at the Carlton because the first experience two years prior with your hotel services were the very best. It appears that the service quality has remained the same - perfect. However, we were disappointed to find that both the restaurant and bar were no longer in operation. They were an added plus to the entire facility. I hope that […] another tenant will soon fill the vacancy. Thank you for the excellent experience and we hope to return once more to your beautiful hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Classic Downtown Hotel"
This exquisitely remodeled hotel has updated features but still has the charm of the 1930’s. I paid the extra and stayed in the deluxe room, which was large and had a whirlpool tub. The only place they scrimped was the room still had an old standard TV that was not high definition. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting the real feel of […] the old downtown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We only stayed here for one night. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The facility is a really beautiful, period building. Architecture, furnishings, etc were classy and well above most hotels in the Paso area. The room was huge! We absolutely would return here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top down headed south"
What a great stop while traveling the central coast! Great service, great linens, huge rooms. . . A gem, 1920's hotel remodeled to perfection. Liked it so much, we stopped for another night on the way back to northern CA.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, close to wine country and SLO."
The hotel is conveniently located right off the 101 freeway, and between wine country in Paso Robles and SLO (for Cal Poly).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel. No restaurant , bar service"
Good rooms and very nice decorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great bargain for a 1929 nostalgic Hotel!"
If you are looking for a clean and unique hotel experience this is the place. I travel for business and usually stay in Paso Robles at the Courtyard or Hampton Inn. This is a better maintained hotel than either, and quiet too!. Even if it is 10 miles down highway 101 from Paso Robles I'll stay here on my next trip through the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Luxurious King Suite"
The room was beyond amazing, the staff was genuinely engaging and extremely helpful!!! The only drawback was no restaurant or bar currently.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel decor and comfort was great ! Disappointed as soon as we drove up to find the restaurant and bar is now closed. Hotels.com , you dont keep up with the nearby neighborhood. To many business surrounding the area. We opened the balcony door to find the are covered in pigeon gunk! The remote was covered with black tape, and the vents filthy ! […] They need to step up the cleaning, looks like they are giving up. The bed comfy,, the room clean and large. We wont be using hotels.com anymore to get a specific room, we are always stuck with handicap, or leftover rooms using this service ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel. Downsides were. A little bit of street noise thru the windows, and no great restaurant or bar in the hotel. A little far from the best restaurants in paso.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Paso Wine"
The hotel exceeded my expectations. It was built in the 1920s but has been updated and is classically elegant. The bed was very comfortable, room was large and bath had separate shower and tub. Hotel staff was friendly and there are many spas and art studios close by. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved this hotel. It was out of the past with a beautiful old time look. I couldn't find anything cleaner. The beds were very restful and the bathtub and shower were worth the stay alone. I loved this charming hotel. I think the only thing missing was a pool and hottub. Over all, I give this the best rating you can give.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was fantastic! Very dog friendly and well located. We'd defintely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very comfortable and clean but the tub jets didn't worked so my plans for a relaxed bubble bath didn't happen. The staff responded proffecional and kind when I called because I had left some personal items in the night stand after we checked out. I was able to pick them up with no problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Historic Hotel"
The beds were amazing and super comfy. Love the small town and there are a lot of cute small shops around. Great cafe attached and burgers down the road. Close to wine and antiques. Great friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great, Will do it again Nice area to walk around and close to some really good wine tasting and food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Option in area"
Great stay as usual! Stayed at other hotels at same rate but no comparison. I never look anywhere else!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old fashioned comfort"
Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They were able to recommend several good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms were very clean, good-sized, comfortable and quiet. There were the expected up scale amenities along with superior beds, bedding and towels. The only (minor) complaint is the width and height of the bath […] tub surround makes it difficult to get in & out of the tub/shower area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I spend a lot of time in hotels for my job and for the price, this hotel provided a high level of luxury and comfort.Genuine Expedia guest review

We stayed here because we were bumped out of our overbooked B&B in Paso Robles but this ended up being great! We would come back for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Upscale Hotel in a Quaint Town"
Great hotel, not too pricey & the front desk agents were very helpful (and funny!).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great old downtown hotel fairly recently renovated"
Maybe it's just me but I love old downtown hotels, and this is a great one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great central California hotel"
The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a wonderful old hotel, with lots of character and all of the upgrades you need. Nice, big bathtub for relaxing. When booking your room, ask for a courtyard view. There's a nice, small balcony (emphasis on small), you can open the french doors and enjoy the fresh air and a nice breeze.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in Atascadero"
Staying at this hotel was a pleasure from the start. The person at check in was very nice and she made sure that we got a great room even though we had our small dog with us. Our room was very spacious and nicely appointed and furnished. My wife really enjoyed the updated bathroom with the jetted tub. Even though the restaurant in the Hotel was closed […] there were plenty of options within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay and will come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful and comfortable rooms!"
I stayed at the Carlton the first time in 2007. We were greeted by a valet parking and bell staff, a roaring fireplace in the foyer, and lovely piano music coming from the lounge in the adjacent restaurant. This time, there is only self parking, and the restaurant is closed, so I was a little worried. The economy had been hard on this beautiful historic […] hotel, but it's existing staff was wonderful! The rooms are still first class! The beds are so comfortable, my Mom, who is 80, said it was the best nights sleep she'd had in days! We both really enjoyed the deep jacuzzi bathtub. The bathrooms are marble and granate, and very roomy. They provide a Kuereg Coffee Maker and several choices of pods. We opted to get lattes from the cafe downstairs, and fresh baked scones. We also enjoyed a massage and facial at the Spa next door. An added bonus was that they allowed my 8lb. Dog, and when I walked her in the morning, I found the surrounding area very charming. We stayed here while visiting family in Paso Robles, which is right next door. The Carlton Hotel is right off the 101 Frwy, and close to the 41, which goes straight to Morro Bay. We made a big circle by taking the 41 west to the coast, visited some cute seaside towns, then took the 46 back through the canyons and wine country, and it was just the perfect location! I hope The Carlton stays open for many years too come!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great. Disappointed in that the restaurant and lounge have closed with no immediate tenant coming in. Carlton needs to change their website to indicate that. Some awnings on the outside of the hotel need to be repaired. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are lovely. Coffee shop attached is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was clean, quiet, and nice. It all seemed new and shiny. Comfy linens and plush towels. Really nice employees. There must have been very few guests. I t was so quiet! There was plenty of parking. There are plenty of places to eat that you can walk to. The town is very clean, too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
EXCELLENTGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel with a touch of class"
I liked everything about the hotel except the restaurant and bar have been closed for approx. a year. That was not mentioned in the add when I chose it. It's a great place...hope they get restaurant and bar soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a very cozy place. However, my biggest disappointment was the room had heavily used, stained and dirty towels. I actually went out and bought towels. Our overall stay was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The most luxurious choice in the area."
This is one of our favorite places to stay in California. By far the nicest for the money in the Central Coast Wine Country. Only 10 minutes to Paso Robles, and surrounded by all the wineries and restaurants. The rooms are just amazing. Huge, beautifully appointed, wonderfully comfortable and impeccably maintained rooms and lovely staff. Charming cafe […] for coffee and tea in the morning too. Their wonderful restaurant closed, but you can at least have a muffin in the morning with your coffee. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Classic Hotel"
A beautifully, well appointed restored small hotel in the small downtown of Atascadero made it easy to get to all the wineries yet away from the noise and expense of Paso Robles. The one disappointment was that the hotel restaurant was gone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wine Country Must-Stay"
My husband, friends and I stayed here for 3 days while Wine Tasting in Paso Robles. I was blown away by the service and beauty of the hotel. It was within walking distance of several cute places to eat and have some drinks which was also nice. The staff was amazingly friendly and very helpful with directing us to some wineries that offered free tastings […] for Hotel Guests! Can't beat that :) I would recommend to anyone who is wanting to visit Paso Robles Wine Country. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent, quaint hotel"
A beautiful hotel in a great location, walking distance to parks and bars. The rooms were clean. I loved the jet tub. The service was friendly, not especially helpful thoughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A sophisticated hotel."
We had stayed at the Carlton once before, so knew what to expect. The rooms are clean, large and quiet. The addition of a mini Keurig brewer and a mini fridge makes staying over in wine country easy when there is a spot for any leftovers and readily available morning coffee. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. The foyer with its cherry wood […] trim is just beautiful. The rates were very reasonable for a Valentine weekend, and came in way under what was quoted at other chain hotels. I would certainly recommend this hotel to any of my family or friends.
