I have coming here almost every year since 1991. This place just gets better and better. They take really good care of the ecological balance, keep improving the amenities and have a spot on the Pacific on the northern end date of the famous 17 mile drive that is fabulously beautiful.

One of us had stayed here for a multi-day conference a few years ago, so we decided to stay for one day as a vacationing couple, to see whether the quality of the food and the peaceful atmosphere of the grounds had changed. Thankfully, neither food not atmosphere had declined, although we were happy that a large conference that had... More

I've been going to Asilomar every January for more than ten years. It's a beautiful place, beautiful grounds, and pretty good food. It is full of character because it's from the 1920's. I just got home from a weekend there. The last two times the heater in our room was broken and the room was 80 degrees. Last time someone... More

I loved our stay at Asilomar. We were there with 3 generations of family and it was the perfect place to be, easy walk to the beach and the coastal walk, great common rooms as well as beautiful big dining hall and main hall. I had been worried based on some of the not so great reviews about the rooms... More

This property is very outdated and way overpriced. For the same money, nearby you can get a modern, clean suite. There is no "rustic charm" here, this place is just plain past it. We had breakfast in the cafe and spent over $20 for a bowl of oatmeal a slice of quiche and 2 cups of coffee (no table service).... More

Breathtaking ocean view, walk to beach and very relaxing surroundings. The lodge is clean, but kind out of date, very spacious, 4 beds a room, not TV, WiFi is ok. The dinning hall opens just one hour for lunch and dinner.

Asilomar Conference Grounds provides the best of a work/relax environment. The grounds are beautiful, well cared for, and overlook the Pacific Ocean. The conference facility was comfortable, food was good, and the individual rooms were clean and well cared for. There are no televisions, but there is wi-fi. There are wonderful paths to the beach, and lots of beautiful wildlife... More

Quiet, spare sleeping rooms spread across a few acres. Aim for the rooms with the view/sound of the ocean and a fireplace. Can congregate with friends in large, rustic lodge with good coffee, a fireplace, a pool table, and a piano. Minutes to the ocean and gorgeous sunsets.

Even if you don’t stay for a conference here some may be interested in the many buildings that were designed by architect Julia Morgan. The front desk will provide you with a map of all the buildings for you to explore on your own or you can join a guided tour. The area has also nice landscaping and some old... More

Here for few days of relaxing, it's a good place for this (no television or phone in room, but wifi works fine). Several hidden rooms dispersed over the property as bungalow-style, this gives the feeling of being in a campground, just feeling. A good experience. In-house restaurant is not 4star but just reasonable, the opening hours of the restaurant for... More
