Stayed at The Carlton for one night on a trip from San Francisco to San Diego. Looking to the pet friendly hotels it was either this or a motel 6-so glad we chose the Carlton! Everything was beautiful and the room was huge. The hotel is historic but completely renovated. They welcomed our dog (50 lbs) and the staff was... More

We spent one night at the Carlton. The vintage rooms are very spacious and luxurious. Very well decorated with a huge bathroom. The whirlpool tub was perfect. There was no outside noise or noise from any room. We really liked this hotel. As for the room selection, if you choose the patio room, level 2, beware that your room opens... More

This hotel was lovely and I cannot say enough good things about it. It has been completely restored and they did a fabulous job. It really is beautiful inside and out. The rooms are very pretty and roomy. The jacuzzi tub was good sized with plenty of hot water and was well worth the price. It was a perfect place... More

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
