People travel for lots of different reasons. Perhaps two of the most prevalent reasons are relaxation and adventure. Asilomar satisfies both in a big way. With its beautiful grounds, easy hiking trail to popular Asilomar Beach, many outdoor and indoor living spaces, you can't help but relax. Adventure? Well for me adventure equals new experience. Something out of the ordinary.... More

The highs are high and the lows are low. I was here for a conference. The location is phenomenal, so close to all the Monterey Peninsula highlights while being right off of the beach. It was really easy to walk out to the beach or the nearby boardwalk for walks or trail runs. The scenery and setting is really lovely,... More

A fabulous spot. We could look at the ocean from out deck. If you want an ocean view be careful what room you book. The room was adequate but spartan; no frig, no phone, no TV and the WiFi was a pain to use. This is a huge place so don't expect the normal B & B breakfast. I would... More

Asilomar is located in a State Park, so you can visit it anytime, see the historic (and wonderful) architecture of Julia Morgan, with some exhibits, and of course a beach, some forest, wildlife. Watch out for poison oak, it is all around, but I did not see any warning signs. Reasons not to stay here: we were at a conference,... More

Large room with an open view across the entire side. Thankfully, no TV or other distractions. MInimal furniture but functional. I thought the food excellent and the staff everywhere, from the receptionist office to cleaners and servers, was great. Made friends with Placido Domingo :). Starbucks in the reception center. Beautiful architecture, with buildings made of wood; 10 buildings designed... More

For $65/night off of a long broken down highway it would almost be reasonable, $300/night for a room that looks like something straight out of the bates motel is outrageous. Here for a conference, the facilities are poorly laid out, the AV is awful, the rooms are terrible (wall paper falling off the walls, holes in the carpets, windows will... More

I was there for 4 days 3 nights in July for a conference and stayed at South View and Scripps one for my own early arrival and one for the conference. They could not allow me to keep the same room. I was happy with the quietude of Southview. Scripps was a very small room with enough space for a... More

When coming from Europe, I expected to see something more impressive in this famous place. Yes, this is a nice piece of wild nature with dunes and ocean, but I can say, the Atlantic cost of Spain looks even better, the more so, you can swim there. On the other hand, a whole accommodation and food reminded me life of... More
