5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were here over last weekend and we just could not believe what a magical place we were in. The grounds, the location, the quiet and the architecture are wonderful. This is a place you come for quiet and relaxation from a time gone by. There are no televisions but there is a family lodge area with a huge fireplace,... More

Comfortable bed, room, etc. Wifi worked well. Nice trails throughout the conference grounds. Food in crocker dining hall was average, not great, not bad either. Pretty nice conference rooms. Nice volleyball court and firepit. Nice service, called a cab for me at the front desk. The walks between the various buildings with rooms and the dining hall / checkin /... More

This place has a great location. The pictures and website overstate the place. Rooms are sparse and outdated by 30 years. I felt like I was in a cabin at 6th grade camp. Not the place for people accustomed to traveling well. The main lodge is pretty but overrun with families who don't manage their children. I would not stay... More

Beautiful location and grounds, but rooms are inconsistent and show their age. If you're looking for rustic and simple, this is your kind of place. All in all, the location and scenery will have you out of your room for most of your stay anyways. A unique stay in a beautiful area. I stayed at Asilomar for a 4-day conference.... More

I first went to Asilomar for a conference years ago and since have returned more than several times. Some times on my own, or with friends, a lover, or my children. (not all at once). The rooms are simple, the family style breakfast scene is old school, and the prices are great for the fantastic location. There is no TV,... More

I was here for a conference and found everything to be great. The rooms were nice and clean (and so relaxing not having a television). There was a nice little balcony to enjoy the weather. The meeting rooms were just as nice if not better as I've seen in big hotels. The food was between good and excellent. The staff... More

Came here for a meeting in March after a long Midwestern winter. A long trip from SFO but used Monterey Airbus (great service and totally reliable) so it wasn't too bad to get here. Weather was perfect, cool mornings/evenings and warm afternoons. Nice cafe in the main building will serve you a giant pour of wine so that you can... More

I attended a meeting here in March. The facilities are OK but the physical setting is stunning. You are right off the beach with evergreens all around. The main building has a bar where one can buy beer/wine, take this to the Adirondack chairs on the deck behind and watch the sun recede into the Pacific. Spectacular and worth the... More

Family, friends, and my wife have been to Asilomar many times, usually to stay in one of the historic, fireplace, or ocean view rooms... Now that they've added a new cafe in the main Lodge, it's also a wonderful place just to drive to, buy a beverage, and take out on the grand porch/veranda, sit in one one of the... More

We stayed here for a conference in the East Breakers building. The room was sparsely appointed with no TV or phone (keeps your mind on business) but did have a Keurig coffee maker. The coffee maker did not work and was replaced by housekeeping. Saving water is seemingly a big priority at Asilomar as it should be, with a few... More
