"small town feel"
very nice hotel but needs the restaurant and the bakery filled.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Carlton:A Jewel in California's belly button!"
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!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little bit of luxury."
We truly enjoyed our stay at the beautifully redone hotel! We would stay there again. Wish there were an onsite restaurant, however.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Customer Service"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and convenient"
Nice rooms in well renovated historic property in a smaller town. Services close by with good access to Paso Robles and SLO. Helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel location is good. No on premises restaurant or bakery café available as shown on hotels.com. Carlton needs to work harder at getting an operator for restaurant and bakery café.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location / easy on/off fwy"
Enjoyed the hotel. The staff was so friendly. Beautiful old building that they have kept up nicely. Wish they had a restaurant, but understand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

"What a wonderful night!"
This was the second time I've stayed at the Hotel Carlton and what a wonderful night it was. The bed was super comfortable, the room clean and beautifully decorated. The price was reasonable and the staff was really friendly and helpful. For a great night in Atascadero, the Hotel Carlton is the place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautifully restored hotel with clean, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff and--something you don't usually find even in upscale hotels--wonderful, calming music in the corridors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slept well -- just a bit warm"
Arrived a bit late -- very friendly reception. Hotel is a historical gem. Bed was very comfortable. TV & other electronics, dates -- but functional. Bathroom was quite large and very nice. Couldn't quite sort out the air conditioner -- I was a bit warm. My room was on the busy street side, but very quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

I stay here everytime I have to work on the Central Coast. Staff is great and helpful. Lots of place to eat and great variety. Comfy beds and jetted tubs. 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. Highly recommend […] The Carlton. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great room for a great price"
Everything was great. Staff was wonderful, parking was easy, room was big and beautiful, bed was very comfortable. Great value for the price. Would happily stay there again if we are ever back in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

"A Lovely Property"
Although the surrounding town does not have much to offer, this hotel is a very well-maintained, heritage property. The room was spacious, comfortable, and very quiet. The towels were super soft!

"Nice hotel with great rooms"
Everything about the hotel is very good. The size of the room and bathroom are great compared to the size of newer hotel rooms. The bathroom had a shower and spa tub. The king size beds were very comfortable as well. The staff is very considerate and helpful. Note, do not expect a fancy flat screen TV, because they still have CRTs and the hotel restaurant […] is also closed which can be a bit of an inconvenience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best hotel I've ever stayed in!"
I was visiting Cayucos and wanted to get a nice hotel for the price I was paying at the coast. I decided that staying in Atascadero would be my best option and I certainly do not regret it! For the same price as a motel in a beach town, I got a beautiful hotel, lovely and helpful staff, and the most beautiful room with a comfortable bed and very spacious […] bathroom. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. I felt like I was a high class traveler! I am definitely returning to this hotel, it is worth every penny. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but a bit pricey"
There was a car show going on which we didn't know about, so we had to park about 1/4 mile walk to the hotel, but then easy to find street parking after we came back from dinner. The hotel is very nice and probably the fanciest of the area. Price is a bit much for what you would expect for the area, but the A/C and the room were comfortable. The roll […] away bed was very comfortable as well. Staff was friendly. It would be nice to see specials for some of the sites, vs. the same price you could get off the street.

Close to freeway, but set back enough. Very friendly staff. Very quiet & relaxing. Nice lobby, but slow elevator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
One of the nicest rooms for a bargain price. Stayed on our last vaca night, wish we were here first, we would have changed our trip. Much nicer then the hotels costing 2-3 times more.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dining room, bar/grill, cafe closed."
We were extremely disappointed. We chose the Carlton based on Expedia's review only to find out all amenities were out of business.Genuine Expedia guest review
