This is a destination hotel with an excellent location right on the beach, historic (but with the right amount of modern convienences) buildings and plenty of on site and nearby attractions and activities. My husband and I stayed here for a family reunion at the end of July and truly enjoyed our stay. The older accommodation buildings, where we were... More

We have stayed at Asilomar Conference Grounds several times. 1) We have attended a wedding here. It was delightful that we could all books rooms at Asilomar and enjoy the wedding. The wedding was at Asilomar State Beach (lovely setting - and amazingly it was sunny not foggy). The reception was a catered affair with dancing in one of the... More

You couldn't ask for more of the California experience than this----bikes available to rent to explore this scenic area, great pool, and lounging areas available outdoors and in. Large fireplaces in common areas which would be great in cooler months. Relaxation is mandatory here. However, the site is not within walking distance of many restaurants at all and the times...

A recent conference - July 2014. Loved this location! Rooms are basic but the location and views make up for any perceived deficiency. I loved every part of this conference location and hope to return one day.

An amazing place to relax and really appreciate the area. The rooms are dated, but it because they have been left the way they were designed by Julia Morgan. To me it just added to the experience. In no way are they tired or dirty, just of an older style. There are no tvs in the rooms so it really... More

I've been here several times for a conference and the location, grounds, service, and food are excellent! We really enjoy the historic rooms. The historic rooms are much more rustic and very small but you spend very little of your time in your room. The common areas are excellent and in cooler weather have fireplaces set and ready for you... More

We have been visiting Asilomar for thirteen years and it has a special place in our hearts. But this trip the room seemed a bit tired and the staff not as friendly. They also use to include breakfast and that had changed as well so we bought a very taste but pricey organic quiche and coffee at their snack bar.... More

Went here for a 3 day getaway for my birthday, loved it and will definitely go back again. The walk to and from the beach on the dunes boardwalk is short and sweet, the restoration work they are doing for the dunes environment deserves kudos. Tide pools to explore, surfers to watch, and the next little beach to the south... More

My husband and I were doing a west coast road trip. Unfortunately, we looked up hotels a bit late and everything else around the area was already booked up. Pros: - Beautiful grounds next to a protected conservation area - Walking access to a beach Cons: - The room was like a singles college dorm. "Rustic" in a not so... More
