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.

Historic property in downtown Atascadero beautifully renovated. Large, nicely appointed rooms with quality linens...very elegant and comfortable. Near wine country and central coast beaches. Would definitely recommend.

Loved the hotel. Know beforehand it's in a sleepy little town. That, to me, was the best part about it! Incrediable sheets, and understated luxury. It's a boutique hotel that has been " misplaced.". A gem! There's a movie theater nearby, and best of all a massage place that incorporates wine. We ate at Guest House Restaurant down the road,... More

Came up to stay at the Carlton Hotel for a Valentines Day getaway and had a fantastic time. Our room was gorgeous inside, was very nicely decorated and with plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy. Despite coming up to enjoy the wine country and the fabulous area restaurants, it was hard to want to leave our room. The... More

We recently visited Atascadero CA and were pleasantly surprised by the charming antiquity of the downtown area.....not to be missed is a stay at the Carlton Hotel. It is a lovely place, has a historic kind of charm, but has been renovated to bring it to today's expectations while holding on to the look of yesteryear. It is a comfortable,... More

My first review was placed at the wrong hotel. The above hotel is the correct one. Can you please fix the problem and place my original review with the correct hotel. The above hotel as indicated in my original review did not provide a functioning restaurant and lounge as advertised. I deserve to be compensated for the false advertisement. This... More

Wow - please don't even think of staying here if you expect hotel or resort amenities and services. This establishment is not inexpensive - our room rate was well in the $200 range - plus they also charge a resort fee.....for what? So my biggest gripe here is that this is not a hotel any longer and should be reclassified... More

Dear PQ11, Thank you for your input. I'm sorry that we weren't able to make your stay everything you expected. Even though we don't have a lot of "extra" amenities, we think that our guest rooms are very luxurious and our guests can enjoy a relaxing soak in the jetted spa tubs that are in each guest bathroom if they...

Wonderful experience! My partner and I were traveling with our 30 yo son with Down Syndrome and we found the Carlton welcoming and warm. We got a double courtyard balcony room. It was large and beautifully appointed. The beds were large and very comfortable. Lovely duvets and feather pillows on the beds. We loved the bathroom..it was clean with fluffy... More

The outside of the hotel looks very nice. The room we were first given looked nice, but there was no air flow. The thermostat wasn't working. The front desk suggested that we open the window for air, which wasn't an option, as we didn't want to hear the constant noise of the traffic. The second room we were given (we... More

We spent two nights at the Carlton during our tour of wine country. It is a great property with gorgeous rooms. The renovators did a marvellous job. We had a room that opened onto the inner courtyard. Couldn't have been nicer. The restaurant is closed on the main level, but there is a good small restaurant about 100 yards away.... More
