The Carlton is just 15 minutes from Paso Robles in the middle of the town of Atascadero. Perfect place to stay to visit vineyards & tasting room with out being in Paso Robles. Very comfortable, grand bathrooms and bakery next door.

We had a great time! Everyone was friendly and kind. I enjoyed our time there and would recommend to anyone I know. The staff is professional and the rooms are very clean. The bathtubs are amazing and the courtyard is romantic for breakfast.

Restored and upgraded hotel. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. The room, a classic king, was quiet, spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was great! I was asleep almost as soon as I hit it. Thick comforter, and if that is too warm, additional blanket in the closet so the comforter can be removed. Robes, too! Shower AND tub, and...

There is no pool at the Carlton, however the whirlpool like tub in the room more Thad makes up for it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. This hotel is within walking distance of a great hamburger joint and attached to an artisan bakery.

Love this place! I have stayed here a few times now, and I love it each and every time. Old world charm in a good location for Paso Robles wine tasting. The bed is great, comfortable and elegant. The room is classic in style and practical in utility. Everything is nicely set-up. It feels like a step back in time,...

Wonderful Hotel. A jewel in a country atmosphere, Exploring the area on your motorcycle and making the Carlton your base of operations, is like putting the icing on a wonderful cake. The Carlton is a blast from the past. Loved it.

We stayed at this property at the last minute while on a road trip. The rooms were clean and updated, and the service was friendly. Within walking distance of many restaurants and beautiful sites, like the Atascadero City Hall, which is lit up beautifully at night. It made a nice, unexpected addition to our vacation. This is not "luxury," but...
