This was our second visit to the Carlton. We were pleasantly surprised on the first visit and equally satisfied this time as well. The hotel is quaint and well maintained. While the lobby and exterior have loads of historical character, the rooms are modern. The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Paso is a 15 minute drive and... More

The Carlton Hotel is by far the best hotel in this area. It has charm, elegance, and comfort. It cost a little bit more than the typical hotel/motel in the Paso Robles area, but for a memorable experience it is well worth the price.

The hotel was nice and well kept. The rooms were very nice a spacious. The staff was excellent and very helpful. One thing that was disappointing was that the restaurant/bar was closed down as well as the café next door.

I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. The staff was fantastic, always looking to please. The room was clean, spacious and the balcony made for a great place to meet up with our friends. ............................................................

While the town of Atascadero isn't much, the renovated Carlton is a great addition to the area. The room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The renovations were very well done with the hallways being understated and tasteful. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. One gripe was that our room was across from an ice machine. While... More

We stayed here on a recent business trip to Atascadero and were very pleased with the comfort and beauty of this hotel. There is a wonderful soaking tub in the luxury bathroom, and the bed was a cushy treat. The hotel does face the freeway and I was concerned about noise when I first saw the room. The heavy drapes...

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
