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).

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
