The hotel is classic beauty at its best. I can sense the historical significance of the place. The staff is unsurpassed. They went out of their way to help and provide excellent, prompt quality service. The location is excellent in every way, everything is walkable. Atascadero's best.

The hotel is absolutely beautifully restored. Better than many nice hotels I have stayed in in Europe which cost a great deal more. High end finishes but with classic features. We had our dog with us and she was welcome at the hotel as well as at a beer pub within walking distance down the road. The park a block... More

For business or pleasure, we always enjoy staying at the Carlton. Staff is terrific, facilities great, location ideal. For a couple who travel plenty, we look forward to our getting to stay at the Carlton.

I very much enjoyed this historic hotel. Our room & bathroom was spacious, clean & well appointed. The front desk personnel were accommodating & pleasant. You can see what this hotel was in yesteryear, and they have done a great job bringing that flavor into the lobby & downstairs. I would like to have had a restaurant on premises, hopefully... More

Staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and assist you in anyway they can. I bought two robes, which if fell in love with and asked them just to leave at the front desk as I was going out. They told me that they will deliver to my room and to enjoy... More

The Carlton is an elegant old hotel which has been beautifully restored. The room was spacious and the king size bed was luxurious. The main drawback is that the adjoining restaurant and bar are no longer in business.

Avoid this hotel at all costs. Their staff lied to me about the total amount per night, then over charged my credit card. The manger, Deena, was rude and unhelpful. She refused to even look into the situation denying that her staff told me what the appropriate fees were. I'd recommend staying elsewhere if you are in the area- not... More

My wife and I stayed at this historic hotel, which was beautifully remodeled to it's days of glory. I can not say enough about how wonderful this place was. The rooms were very quiet, clean, neat and the bed was one of the most comfortable that we have ever slept on. The historic ambiance took me back in time and... More

Lovely upscale, clean, beautifully decorated, and historical room. The bathroom was mainly marble with a nice large tub that included a separate large walk-in shower. The room size was average, but the bed was extremely comfortable with great quality bedding. I was a little disappointed with the television, as it was an older style flat screen as opposed to a...

Great alternative to "normal" hotels. Historic hotel with excellent renovation. Staff very friendly, room very large. Had a courtyard room so was really quiet. Competitive rate with same standard chain hotels. Several restaurants and shops walking distance. Will definitely return. Atascadero just has such a nice atmosphere.
