Other than the $15 resort fee that I didn't see a reason for charging (amenities were nice, but standard, and available self-parking), this is a very nice hotel for your money. Loved the Jacuzzi bath tub (separate shower available too).

This hotel is old and in good condition. The rooms are large and the bathrooms first class with both a shower and soaking tub. My bed had the best mattress I think I have ever slept on. The staff of this hotel were super super friendly and helpful. Best for customer service. I was very disappointed that there was no... More

We stayed here for one night on the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. On arrival the staff were very helpful, we unloaded our luggage and parked the car in the hotels car park which is just over the road. The room was big, it was very nice and also clean. The bed was very comfortable which was just... More

We spent 2 nights at The Carlton last week. We helped move our daughter across country to Atascadero. My husband made the reservations online several weeks before the trip. We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious accommodations, comfortable beds, and friendly, helpful staff. We would definitely stay there again!

Labor Day evening 2014, had done almost all of CA-1, California's Pacific coast, from San Francisco to Halfmoon Bay to Santa Cruz to Monterey's 17 Mile Drive to Hearst Castle in San Simeon. A lot of driving and a lot of milage, but we were too tired to stick to our plan of getting to Sequoia National Park before night.... More

Our family and many friends stayed at the Carlton Hotel for my daughter’s destination wedding in Atascadero. The historical hotel is beautifully restored. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the bedding, pillows and linens are exceptional. The bathrooms are spacious as well as beautiful. The photos on the website do not do this hotel justice, it was even prettier in... More

We spent one night at The Carlton and it really was a pleasant surprise. This hotel and the town it's in could easily be overlooked with the competition from it's surrounding neighbours and frankly they were sold out when we passed through. This as it turns out worked in our favour as we enjoyed the friendly service, large comfortable room,... More

We needed to travel to Paso Robles for family business and couldn't get a hotel due to the Fair in town so we booked The Carlton in Atascadero 15 min away. What a pleasant surprise!! Beautiful, quiet hotel within walking distance to restaurants. Such a peaceful town. The rooms are very large with comfortable beds. Very tastefully decorated with a... More

From London, we really enjoyed the boutique hotel vibe, nice and quite. Great staff and this is slap bang in the middle of everything you need in Atascadero .....just around the corner there is a great wine tasting place called the barrel (I think) and next to that a delicious little bistro type place ...also forgotten the name ...fig and...

We had tried to book a room for 3 nights and 3 people over on the coast but nothing was available so we looked inland and found the Carlton. A very pleasant surprise, the rates were much better, the room was about twice normal size, very comfortable beds and service. Highly recommended, would stay there again.
