How fortunate we are that the historic Asilomar buildings and fabulous grounds have been saved for us and for future generations to enjoy! Asilomar is truly a treasure. Considering the variety of groups and sheer numbers of people they accommodate, Aramark does a great job keeping this conference center running smoothly. It works well for people of all ages -...

Asilomar is located in a great place along the coast! The more rustic setting provides a welcome retreat to a frequent traveler. I found a couple of necessities to be severely lacking. My room did not have soap or shampoo and I did not realize until I was getting in the shower. I later learned this was just an oversight... More

We stayed in the Live Oak building. They have 10 rooms and a shared living room with fireplace. I was thinking this would be great for family reunions or friends' weekend get-together. At dinner we met our "building mates" and they were in fact there to celebrate a family member's birthday. The meals are family-style seating after you get your... More

Considering the price of an average night nearby; this is a deal, not a deal and a half. The service and history of Asilomar make it special. Front desk, cafe, and room staff are very good. We heard there was supposed to be a Meditative Ambience. Not there, at least not that week. Lots of kids banging on the piano... More

It was my first time in this type of place. A little bit outdated and rustic for me, but the nature and things to do with family or friends are great. I went for a conference and didn't like it for that, but for vacation and resting I would. The bedroom cabins are outdated. Resembling the 70s.....it reminded me of... More

This was my first time here and the Monterey pines are magnificent! Being so close to the beach and Pacific Ocean is amazing. They are doing many improvements to the setting by putting in lovely brick paver paths. I like having the internet. I do not mind having no tv and no phone. However, the burnt orange bathroom counter really... More

This is the third time I've stayed here, twice in historic rooms, once in a newer room. Don not expect luxury, although the rooms were very clean and the newer ones quite nice with decks. The older ones are cramped, but absolutely unique and each group of historic rooms shares a lovely living room with fireplace, great for reading, board... More

I spent 3 nights at Asilomar at a meeting; I had been there about 6 times previously,, and love it. It is rustic and tranquil, and almost functions as a retreat. They are upgrading some of the paths to make it more disabled-friendly. The rooms are comfortable, not luxurious. Bathrooms are a bit small. The staff is low-key but helpful.... More

I was there for a conference and stayed for 3 nights. The rooms and conference center are located in a beautiful setting, near the Pacific and full of vegetation, deer and squirrels. The rooms were very nice, clean and cozy. I think the food and service at the restaurant was ok but a little below expectations. A very very nice... More
