While the town of Atascadero isn't much, the renovated Carlton is a great addition to the area. The room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The renovations were very well done with the hallways being understated and tasteful. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. One gripe was that our room was across from an ice machine. While...

We stayed here on a recent business trip to Atascadero and were very pleased with the comfort and beauty of this hotel. There is a wonderful soaking tub in the luxury bathroom, and the bed was a cushy treat. The hotel does face the freeway and I was concerned about noise when I first saw the room. The heavy drapes...

The hotel is classic beauty at its best. I can sense the historical significance of the place. The staff is unsurpassed. They went out of their way to help and provide excellent, prompt quality service. The location is excellent in every way, everything is walkable. Atascadero's best.

The hotel is absolutely beautifully restored. Better than many nice hotels I have stayed in in Europe which cost a great deal more. High end finishes but with classic features. We had our dog with us and she was welcome at the hotel as well as at a beer pub within walking distance down the road. The park a block...

I very much enjoyed this historic hotel. Our room & bathroom was spacious, clean & well appointed. The front desk personnel were accommodating & pleasant. You can see what this hotel was in yesteryear, and they have done a great job bringing that flavor into the lobby & downstairs. I would like to have had a restaurant on premises, hopefully...

The Carlton is an elegant old hotel which has been beautifully restored. The room was spacious and the king size bed was luxurious. The main drawback is that the adjoining restaurant and bar are no longer in business.

Avoid this hotel at all costs. Their staff lied to me about the total amount per night, then over charged my credit card. The manger, Deena, was rude and unhelpful. She refused to even look into the situation denying that her staff told me what the appropriate fees were. I'd recommend staying elsewhere if you are in the area- not...
