We happened to be their for a car show and the following evening there was live music in the adjacent bar. There is a great little restaurant next door with terrific coffee and pastries. Also...

My husband and I were enroute to paso Robles for a quick anniversary getaway and booked a room at the Carlton. What a treat!! Very elegantly furnished, wonderful cozy beds with super soft linens. Incredibly huge bathroom with shower and spa tub! Also, the people that worked there were all extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

The marble bathroom and jetted tub are standouts! It's not perfect.. it has some minor flaws of an older bldg but def more positives... More

My husband and I planned a trip up the PCH and this was one of the stops along the way. From the moment we walked into the lobby we knew we had made the right decision. The staff was very friendly and the hotel very well maintained. When we checked out I asked the staff if they would just ship... More

One of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. Bathroom has a huge tub and separate shower, and the toilet has it own little room. Room was quite no street noise nor did we hear the neighbors. I love the beautiful hotel.

We were traveling through and every chain hotel was booked. We were thrilled to find this jewel of a hotel. The rooms were luxurious and very comfortable. The bakery next door was an added bonus. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

First time staying here and had the most wonderful and romantic time. Had a room that walked out to the courtyard which was a great surprise and great to have a glass of wine! Would definitely recommend Carlton Hotel to family and friends from now on!! Can't wait to book my next stay here!

Although we only stayed one night, our experience was great. Friendly and efficient staff checked us in quickly. The room was comfortable and clean with an extra large bathroom. Would definitely stay here again.
