"Wow very nice! Can't wait to go back."
This hotel is like a boutique hotel at normal hotel prices. Lots of charm and very nice facilities. The hotel restaurant and bar are closed down, but there are restaurants and bars nearby you can visit. What a great hotel, we cannot wait to go back on our next wine tasting trip.

"Romantic room for weary travelers."
Making the road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles can be a daunting and agitating task when traveling with a significant other. But stopping at a hidden gem called the Carlton put the romance back into "Road Trip". No more long, boring, smelly, constant lane changing drives up and down highway five in our future. More Beautiful scenic cruises next to the the pacific, jacuzzi tubs at the Carlton, and happy travels ahead!!!!

"Classic Luxury, get it while you can!"
The Carlton Hotel is a Grand Dame Hotel from yesteryear.Built in 1929, we enjoy staying here whenever we can. Classic and regal with lots of marble and dark wood, it has seen better days but it holds up very well. The hotel has an almost "Ghostly" feel because the area is rather depressed and the glory days seem to be long gone. They used to have a wonderful lounge and restaurant which kept the aura lively and perhaps when those assets return - so will the Carlton. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy the staff and hotel; they are top notch. Its just I would love to see it back in its glory and I think, soon; it may be poised to do so.

"Incredible gem in heart of central coast"
This hotel is incredibly well-appointed and lovely! We had no idea what to expect, and were blown away by how clean and elegant the hotel is, and how everything one would want in a hotel was perfect: in-room Kureg coffee maker; incredibly soft bed, pillows and linens; in-room sitting area, large bathroom! And the staff were great, too! We travel from SF to Santa Barbara coast often and always pick a place to stay somewhere along the central coast wine region. Now that we've found The Carlton, I don't think we'll stay anywhere else. Also... great bakery down the block, and a great cafe and amazing hamburgers are all within a 1-minute walk!

"Second time visiting for weekend"
Let me begin by saying this is a beautiful hotel with very gracious and helpful staff. Our weekend was overall a wonderful time, with many happy experiences. Our room was apparently " upgraded" to one with no mini fridge ( broken, no replacement) and a thermostat with control removed. We had intended to watch a movie but had to wait for a dvd player to be brought in and hooked up , then found it was not compatible with the tv and was useless to us. They were , however, successful in repairing the holder for the hand held shower head so it didn't have to rest on the floor. The thermostat was also rendered functional. The real challenge came on our last morning when the water pressure in the entire hotel failed,( not their fault) thereby preventing showers or toilet flushing from happening. Their maintenance man devised a plan and pressure was restored partially, which was enough for toilets but not showers on the third floor. We checked out with an adjustment made to the charges and I was happy with their gesture. As I said, we still had a great weekend and would stay here again.

The hotel is great, and Lauren, at the desk, was fantastic! She was helpful, personable, and went the extra mile to help me! I love the beautiful old world style, and elegance! I stop by the Carlton each time I go to LA, and soon, I am going to go there purely to stay at the Carlton, and have a relaxing, wonderful time!

"Paso Robles Wedding"
We had a wedding to attend in Paso Robles. We tried first to find a Hotel close to the wedding venue, but could not find any suitable accommodations that were available that weekend. So we widened the search to include Atascadero, and are happy that we did. The Carlton was only 10 minutes away from where we had to be in Paso Robles. Close to the 101 freeway. I have to say that the Staff were all very nice, very accommodating. We asked if we could check in early, and they were able to accommodate that request. I felt like I knew them before I checked in, friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

"Elegant"
A very posh room for the cost. I felt pampered when all I needed was a bed for one night. A block down the street was a burger joint called Sylvester's which makes very good burgers and beer. One very minor inconvenience: the front desk was not manned at check in or check out and both times I had to hunt for the clerk, but overall a nice stay.

I couldn't stay there due to an accident on the road but the guy at the front desk that night was so helpful when we called him and asked him for alternate routes. When we realized we couldn't make it, we called and cancelled (which was around 2:00 AM) and he didn't give us any trouble and wished us safe travels.

"October 2014"
The Carlton was nice enough. For the money, a few details were lacking. Old school crt tv was not working. Hotel staff did everything they could,but in the end no tv. Shower: half inch gap between shower door and wall. How is this not going to leak onto floor? Funky shower head was barely adjustable. Hotel staff was excellent. But they can only do so much. Sometimes its the little details that make the difference. For this price range,these details should be addressed. Nice,clean,quiet,friendly staff, but not perfect.

"Decided to stay here based on reviews"
The hotel has been well kept, it is very charming and the room we had was very comfortable. The TV was old but the connection to cable was good. We did enjoy a friendly welcome even though it was quite late. Free parking across the road was good especially as so many hotels charge extra for this these days! The town was very quiet and only limited options for food, this hotel does not have any food service at this time. We enjoyed a checkout just after 11 this flexibility was good and we did find a good diner a couple of miles down the road. Overall our experience was pleasant.

My only gripe is that they still don't have flat screen tvs. BUT I've been places where they have flat screens but channels are fuzzy. At least the channels come in crystal clear here.

"Wonderful!"
Sorry t have spent only two nights at The Carlton, we didn't want to leave! Wonderful and beautiful, much more than we expected and less money than the dump we stayed at in Santa Barbara. Two minor complaints: The TV didn't work, and the man to fix never came ( to be fair, I didn't pursue the issue), and my room was one of 2 in the hotel where we couldn't control the a/c or heat. The weather was beautiful, so again, a minor issue. Would highly recommend a visit to this hotel. Only wished I lived closer to California so I could visit often.

"Nice Surprise!"
This was "stay over" lodging versus "destination" lodging but we were pleasantly surprised by our stay. An old, possibly historic building that is quite charming and kept up well. The bathroom was the nicest of all the places we stayed during our trip. A spa tub, shower, large bathroom counter, nice decor and separate toilet. The room was quite large and the bed very comfortable. The staff was attentive and pleasant. Even though it is located in more of a "drive thru" town, I would stay here again in a second. Very nice! On the Con side of the equation.... It is probably the first nice hotel I have ever stayed at that did not have a restaurant and bar. I mean it does have them but they are both closed. It also had a bakery that was attached to the property and it is also closed. I saw pictures of the bar and restaurant in an old brochure and they both looked really nice. The fact that these rooms sit empty does not bode well for the properties future. I can only hope that the Carlton survives as it was a very pleasant stay!
