We were looking for a place to stay for a night after a visit to Hearst Castle. After checking out hotels in Paso Robles, I read reviews of the Carlton on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot. The hotel was about 45 minutes from Hearst Castle, but an easy drive with no traffic. The price for a... More

I stayed at this hotel during a side road trip up the coast. The hotel has a great classic feeling to it and were prompt to give us our room. There is parking across the street and free wifi. Our room was very cozy and had a nice bed. My favorite part was the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom and... More

We were only in Atascadero for one night and rather than stay in a chain hotel, this place caught my eye. Am I glad it did! What a lovely and grand hotel in a convenient location. Upon check-in a tour bus had arrived just before us (an unusual event, I am told). When I noticed that my room was next... More

Overall a exquisite hotel!! It has an old "Victorian" feel to it mixed with Hollywood at the same time! The hotel staff is super friendly and so very helpful!! Plenty of room with a view of the balcony! The beds were so comfortable and definitely high quality with pressed sheets that feel so good when you get into them! The... More

Staying at this hotel was quite an experience. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable beds. The public rooms were very well decorated - full of charm and history. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed, so we had to go out for food. Maybe next time.

When you are up wine tasting, biking, coming back from the coast or whatever, the Carlton is a delightful taste of long-ago elegance. Service is excellent, rooms are comfortable, if a little cramped, and there is an excellent in house restaurant and bar. Not only that....it's just up the street from Sylvester's - most excellent burgers and breakfasts!

Even in the standard room, one had the sense of "old Hollywood" with the beautiful period reproduction furniture & upscale fabrics. Well designed built-in cupboard for the coffee maker along with china cups, a very comfortable bed and a hanging tapestry added much to the ambiance. BUT, my favorite amenity was the fabulous marble tiled bathroom with jacuzzi tub and... More

I was fortunate to enjoy yet another stay at The Carlton for several days during mid-May, and once again was reminded why I keep coming back. The staff is always very friendly and helpful with every detail. The room is very comfortable, the bed the most comfy I've ever found while traveling. Internet access (a "must" for me) is excellent... More

Loved, loved, loved this hotel. Front desk was friendly and upbeat. Hotel was beautiful. The room was amazing. Jetted tub was wonderful and so nice after a long car ride. The king size bed was so comfy made for a wonderful nights sleep.
