We were looking for a place to stay for a night after a visit to Hearst Castle. After checking out hotels in Paso Robles, I read reviews of the Carlton on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a shot. The hotel was about 45 minutes from Hearst Castle, but an easy drive with no traffic. The price for a nice room was much less than the cost for the better hotels in Paso Robles. The hotel is really more of an Inn than a hotel. There is no bellman or anyone to help with your bags or your car. You are greeted by a lone person at the front desk and the hotel doesn't have a restaurant or typical amenities that you would associate with most large hotels. However, the room was very spacious, updated and clean. The bathroom was large, modern with granite and had a nice shower and tub. The beds were very comfortable with good linens and there was plenty of room for all 4 of us for a night. The hotel has free parking in a lot across the street and we were only about 12 minutes from Paso Robles, where we had a lovely dinner at Thomas Hill Organics, and a great breakfast the next day. We didn't understand the resort fee, as there didn't seem to be any resort amenities on the premises. However, if you are looking for a nice, quant, reasonably priced, modern hotel for a night, close to Paso Robles and not far from Hearst Castle and Cambria, this is a good alternative. . .
