When we booked, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but on arrival was very pleased. Very convenient to both Carmel and Monterey Bay, Asilomar was a nice change from standard hotel type accommodation. Our cabin room had 4 separate single beds and our own fireplace (complete with firewood & matches). Very cosy and for our family of four -... More

Part of us from Nor Cal and part So Cal...met at Asilomar to celebrate a Birthday! Grounds are lovely and the beach could not be more beautiful, but rooms are just average and because we were a large group had large ADA rooms that left much to be desired. No phone in rooms makes an urgent situation pretty impossible to... More

I love Asilomar, just to be clear, it is NOT a 5 star corporate hotel chain experience, it is rustic, the bathrooms are clean but reminiscent of the late 60's, there are no phones in the rooms, no TV's and no robes with that said our king bed was very comfortable with new linens. So if you are looking to... More

I recently spent 7 days at Asilomar: 5 for a conference and 2 additional days for personal travel. BOTTOM LINE Visit the park but lodge elsewhere. The best features of Asilomar State Park—the Julia Morgan designed lodge, the boardwalks, the beach, the nature—are free and available to all. You can even rent bikes at Asilomar without being a guest. Check... More

Maybe I should start with the positive. The location is fantastic. It is a short and beautiful walk to the beach. We left our patio door open and could fall asleep listening to the sound of the ocean. We also had a distant view of the ocean from our room which was gorgeous. They had camp fires every night which... More

My family and I have come to Asilomar every year for a long time. We go right after Christmas, and we love PG, so we always have a great time. However, the last few stays have been marred by a decided lack of quality. This past stay will have been our last. The rooms are very expensive, for Pacific Grove,... More

Stayed overnight for a trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium. The grounds has a mountain retreat/cabin type feel, except you are right next to the ocean! Furnishing feels a little dated, but it works well with the feel of the area. No TV, but who needs it when WiFi works just fine. On-site cafeteria hours are not reliable (i.e. does not... More

We loved our short stay here. We booked it on a whim when in the area on other business. We loved the historic nature of the property and enjoyed walking the grounds and the boardwalk to the beach. Overall we really enjoyed our room with big windows overlooking the grounds. The bathroom was a bit dated, but everything was clean... More

And NOW.... for a real review of this weird motel complex... from a non-hippy regular traveler. This place is really odd. It's broken up into really about a dozen different mini complexes all in this camp-like compound. It's basically "camping for adults". I first want to mention that the online photos of this place on all the hotel websites are... More

I recently had my first stay in the Asilomar Conference Grounds. The scenery and animal life is simply amazing here. Pines, firs, dunes, tide pools, Deer wandered the ground freely. A fascinating cousin of the Man o'War washed up on the shore. The paths through the grounds make exploration very easy. My group stayed in the Guest Inn, the only... More
