About Carlton Hotel, Atascadero

Historic hotel in Central Coast wine country

25 minutes from Morro Bay

Elegant Carlton Hotel is in Central Coast wine country between San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles, each 17 minutes by car, and 17 miles inland from the ocean. Hearst Castle is a 44-minute drive, and Morro Bay, famed for surfing and massive Morro Rock, is a 25-minute drive west.

Wine and whale tours

As you’re in the midst of wine country, you’ll want to make the 10-minute drive to Wild Horse Winery & Vineyards, where you can take a “Grape to Glass” tour. Sub Sea Tours appeals to the adventurous, providing prime whale-watching experiences, a 26-minute drive away.

Host to the stars

From the handcrafted ironwork on the central staircase to the intricate library moldings, Old World style greets you at every turn; over the years, this classic hotel has hosted stars like Bette Davis and Jack Benny. A fitness room is on site, and numerous restaurants are nearby.

Premium beds, jetted tubs

In the 52 French-inspired rooms, beds are layered with 400-thread-count linens and down duvets, marble bathrooms have jetted tubs and separate showers, and WiFi is available. Some rooms open onto Tuscan-style terraces - perfect for relaxing and sipping a wine you've discovered.

Awesome! Beautiful and comfortable.

best place to stay
we loved the comfort of the hotel, room and especially enjoyed the restaurant with the live music. The clam chowder was out of this world and the steak was cooked to perfection. We will stay again and tell all our friends.

Nice Hotel
Lovely little hotel with a restaurant next door as well as a bakery. The front desk staff were wonderful: very welcoming. The room itself was very nice and the bathroom is spectacular with a jetted tub. As a tall girl it’s pure heaven to have a tub I fit in. The shower was big and luxurious. The bed was comfortable and the room was quite roomy. My only complaint is that the carpet needed to be cleaned and the edges needed to be stretched and tacked down again.
