Ladera Ranch, California
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

The Carlton Hotel is perfectly situated just off the 101 in the sleepy, central coast town of Atascadero. A historic building from the early 20th century, the Carlton was remodeled about a decade ago and a third floor was added. The remodel made the place pure luxe with bathrooms to die for.

Very clean and professional staff. Would stay again. Parking available across the street with no valet assistance which is usually not an issue but it was raining and would have been nice to have assistance or at least an option given the weather situation.

Great hotel, excellent accommodations and friendly staff. There is a breakfast bakery on site and a great casual eating spot two doors down ( Streetside Sports Bar) and they are dog friendly. We travel this route at least twice a year and we have tried other hotels but now this us the only one.

I stayed at The Carlton while making a road trip from LA to San Francisco with my small dog. The hotel is right off the 101 freeway and is located in a charming downtown area. The bakery next door was delicious and we found places to go within walking distance which made it a great place to stop for the...

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...

We were travelling from No.CA to So. CA and found a half way point to research a place to stay to break up our trip. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a gem. Bed was very comfortable which is a huge plus to us and the room was exceptional. Found a great place to eat just down the street...

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.
