Family Nature Summit is a gathering of nature loving adventurous families ranging in age from very old to very young who has been gathering for over 30 years. Hundreds of us took over the Asilomar for a week. We travel once a year all over the US. The Asilomar accommodated us fairly well. Rooms were clean, beds very comfortable, in... More

First, the positive: the grounds were beautiful and the location was fantastic. The negative: we booked our stay on Groupon for a room with two double beds. We were traveling with two other couples with their children and they each booked the same exact type of room. We arrived first and as I was checking in, was told our room... More

Went to breakfast on Lighthouse Ave & when we got back our rooms had been cleaned & our money & RX were stolen while we were gone for one hour. The food on the grounds is horrible!! Taste like airplane food but for 300% mark up. Not a value at all!!! Very disappointed!!

I stayed at Asilomar recently for a conference. It was my second time at this resort. While the setting is spectacular, I was very disappointed withe conference center. The rooms were run down, a little dirty, and with splintered wood decks, etc. But the worst part is that on my last day there, someone stole $300 from my room (no... More

Asilomar Conference Grounds and state park is a great get-a-way at a very reasonable rate - in comparison to other local motels. It is bare bones - no TV, phone and you have to request a coffee maker. But, the quiet is nice. Make sure to request your size bed, and get to registration early. The grounds are a conference...

This is not a motel for the typical hurried traveler. This is an historic YWCA camp that has been preserved for those who can appreciate some quality time in a quality natural setting. If you want a typical modern motel, good TV, fast internet, etc. do not go to Asilomar. But if you want a restful, nature-oriented, almost-camping ambiance, Asilomar... More

Very basic rooms. The room we stayed in had all of the basics and you definitely were in touch with Mother Nature. A little different to not a have a tv in the room but was okay. Walls are thin and easy to hear everything at ALL times of the day. Overall good stay but wouldn't stay here again.

My husband and I got married here 10 years ago, and it was absolutely wonderful! We tied the knot on the stunning white sand beach and had the reception in the Seascape hall. I remember the people being delightful, and the scenery and food being heavenly, but we had stayed at fancier accommodations over in Monterey. Last night we were... More

I was here initially for a conference but at the end stayed on for a couple of days. It is such a lovely setting. Yes the buildings/ rooms are basic and you don't have fancy facilities like coffee makers etc.. but on the whole I really liked it. Although the food was good and quite varied it was a bit... More

The rooms definitely rate four stars; with the door open we could hear the waves crashing and see a seal hunting in the ocean. No TV and no telephone (unless you go to the end of the building. I felt the meals were overpriced for cafeteria style. Otherwise, a great place.
