Verified Reviews of Carlton Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Fantastic"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My family stayed at the Carlton the night of the Kid Rock concert. The room was great! Plenty of space, really comfortable beds and pillows. My wife loved the whirlpool tub and separate shower. If I had to complain about anything it would be parking. There are not enough spots for the rooms, fortunately we were able to get the last spot available. Overall I would recommend to anyone if you're in Atascadero, stay at the Carlton, you won't regret it.
