last spring i stayed at the carlton for business and was truly impressed. the room itself was as nice as any room i have stayed in regardless of the price. the bathroom at least in my room was on par with any hotel in san francisco or new york. after an all day court hearing, i enjoyed the bar and restaurant (actually i just drank and chose to eat at the bar, but it was extremely nice and as good as the nice restaurants in san luis obispo.) i told the others who i had the case with and they all changed hotels and came to the carlton. later they all said that they thought the hotel was a gem for atascadero.
i really don't understand the reviews i have read here and just felt i needed to tell my experience at the hotel. i saw this place being re-built and wondered how nice it could be in atascadero, which is not where people usually stay in the area. i believe that the owners did a fabulous job and should be proud of the first class property.
i saw these reviews when i went back to make another reservation. this time i am bringing my wife who i told about the hotel. after she read these reviews, she is now doubting me, but i know she will be pleasantly surprised with our stay. we have chosen this as the place to stay on our way back from santa barbara to the bay area, and if it was located in santa barbara it would cost double.
see for yourself, but i think this hotel was great.
