This is a very charming, well maintained historic property. Unlike some other older hotels, the rooms are large. The bathrooms are are also large and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again when wine tasting on the central coast. The hotel is literally minutes from many good wineries. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

We had to be in Paso Robles for a wedding last Saturday. All the Hotels that we researched in the area closest to the wedding were sold out or asked for a 2 night minimum. We were only staying for one night. So thought I would research nearby areas, and found this Hotel in Atascadero. It was only 10 minutes... More

The Carlton is a nice historical hotel in wine country. the rooms are nice, and serivce was good. They did a good job with the upgrades to the rooms. However, parking can be an issue and a hassle. The lot of the hotel is across the steeet and has only about 25 spots...it it's full, you hunt for a spot... More

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel (Room 519) last weekend for the Paso Robles Wine Festival and the room and the staff were excellent. The King bed was so comfy with great high quality linens and the room was quiet, cool and very large for a hotel room! We loved the spacious room and the great bathroom with a full... More

This is a hotel that many will not be aware of - Atascadero is a tiny California town. However it is near San Luis Obispo, wine country and Cambria! The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. The rooms are more on the expensive side, but they are roomy and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay there and would definitely recommend!

We stayed here for a three-night wine weekend and what a great discovery! The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are huge, and it feels like a classic resort in the middle of Atascadero...not easy to do. It was a hot weekend but the AC in our room was up to the challenge and the king-sized bed was... More

We were so surprised at how luxurious our Vintage King room was. It truly is on a par with such hotel rooms as the Ritz Carlton! Oversized bedroom and bath, high quality furnishings and bathroom surfaces. The TV could be upgraded, but that's all that's missing. Very affordable compared to hotel prices in Paso Robles for hotel rooms which don't... More

Wonderful find in small town in Central California wine country. Plush bedrooms with large well-appointed bathrooms. Very polite and helpful desk employees. Very reasonable rates. Good sushi restaurant nearby.

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).
