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.

It's unfortunate that there's no place to eat at the hotel (aside from the bakery) however, it is a beautiful and plush place to stay. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. With a few good eateries near by, a gorgeous downtown park, and movie theater within walking distance...it's my favorite place to stay in the area. Side note...my boyfriend left... More

I am a stickler for cleanliness but this place was immaculate. They offer very large rooms for a reasonable price. The bed and linens are comfortable. The style is a luxurious early colonial. The bathrooms are spa quality with a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. Be sure to check out the bakery near the lobby it has fresh baked... More

The hotel was very nice. The room was nicely furnished. However, after I got home my credit card was charged for $8.64. I called them out of curiosity to see why I was charged extra. The person said it sounds like I used the two bottles of Fiji water that were in the room. I asked whether there was some... More
