“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

wonderful staff, beautiful hotel and comfortable beds... 5 stars.....

I was greated very polightly by Travis at the front desk. having missed happy hour I was directed to various other locations to grab some wine and appetizers. all was in walking distance which is always a plus. Upon returning had wine at the bar, a great crowd of people and great conversation. the best part was the bed, sooooo comfortable. Return customer

We had a one night stay in August. This property and it’s staff were phenomenal. Our experience started with a price match, then perfect driving directions knowing that the area had some road construction.
The next day I had forgotten my laptop and they made sure I was contacted.
The beds were super comfy and jet-tub awesome!! Although, the TV’s could use some upgrading :-) I would stay here and recommend this place to everyone.
I call this a Fairmont quality hotel w/out the funny uniforms ;-).

We stayed at the Carlton for 3 nights the first of August 2012. Beautiful hotel, over the top friendly staff, and the most comfortable beds! The restaurant's Happy Hour was perfect, and dinner at Colby Jack's was good. Also enjoyed the jetted bathtub. Would definitely recommend. Only 10 minutes from downtown Paso and wine country.

Beautifully restored and maintained old-style hotel in heart of Atascadero. Very polite employees. Our room was wonderful - nicely furnished with lots of amenities and a classy bathroom. Near lots of wineries. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Definitely worth a visit.

Great service. Great location in Atascadero. Great place to eat within walking distance named Fig (counter ordering, laid back). Very friendly staff. Rooms very spacious. Good value for the money. Kid friendly. Have stayed 3 times in last 5 years, and will definitely return.

My husband and I were so excited to be staying here after looking at the website. The beds were pretty comfortable and the the bathroom was clean. That's where the good experience ended. The parking is awful, our comforter was dirty, the toilet wouldn't stop running, the tv and remote wouldn't work correctly, half of the fitness equipment was broken, they advertise that the fitness room has water, refreshments and a tv, which wasn't true, and to top it off the woman who runs the night shift is just down right hateful. I will never stay at this hotel again.

Just off the 101 freeway is The Carlton Hotel. It is a well appointed hotel that is also very clean. The room was surprisingly large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and eager to answer any questions. Some drawbacks were: no pool, no valet (just a quick curbside unloading area for registration), limited parking was located across the street and we happen to be there on a fully booked night and were lucky to have parked in the last available space. For a small town I can see why they would lack on some of the things usually accustomed to at larger hotels in larger cities. The whirlpool jetted tub did make up for the pool. All in all, we would probably stay here again on our next business trip back to this charming little town.
