About Carlton Hotel

Historic hotel in Central Coast wine country

25 minutes from Morro Bay

Elegant Carlton Hotel is in Central Coast wine country between San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles, each 17 minutes by car, and 17 miles inland from the ocean. Hearst Castle is a 44-minute drive, and Morro Bay, famed for surfing and massive Morro Rock, is a 25-minute drive west.

Wine and whale tours

As you’re in the midst of wine country, you’ll want to make the 10-minute drive to Wild Horse Winery & Vineyards, where you can take a “Grape to Glass” tour. Sub Sea Tours appeals to the adventurous, providing prime whale-watching experiences, a 26-minute drive away.

Host to the stars

From the handcrafted ironwork on the central staircase to the intricate library moldings, Old World style greets you at every turn; over the years, this classic hotel has hosted stars like Bette Davis and Jack Benny. A fitness room is on site, and numerous restaurants are nearby.

Premium beds, jetted tubs

In the 52 French-inspired rooms, beds are layered with 400-thread-count linens and down duvets, marble bathrooms have jetted tubs and separate showers, and WiFi is available. Some rooms open onto Tuscan-style terraces - perfect for relaxing and sipping a wine you've discovered.

Carlton Hotel
old style luxury.
Wonderful hotel!! Rooms are large and comfortable, beds super comfy. Enjoyed the separate bath tub and shower. Very Quiet!! Even though we were on the street side, we did not hear any noise. The only problem we had was adjusting the thermostat. Our room was very warm and it took a few hours to get it adjusted to comfortable temperature.
