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 The lodge is clean, but kind out of date, very spacious, 4 beds a room, not TV, WiFi is ok.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

Wonderful place in Northern California. I stayed for 9 nights and I simply loved the experience. No TV in the rooms, this is a luxury for me not to see this black screen! the beds are comfortable but my room needed renovating specially the bathroom. Nevertheless, the rooms are spacious even if a bit noisy, not much isolation from the... More

This hotel is quite old, so, despite some renovation, you should not expect all that fancy stuff such as great mobile coverage, fast wi-ifi, and some other signs of civilization. However, if you want to take a rest from business, it is the place to go. Amazing Boardwalk through dunes, great swimming pool, deers on property, good breakfast, and, of... More

Rustic pretty basic lodging on the beautiful Pacific Coast. I spent a week there attending a professional meeting. The grounds are pretty. You can see a lot of wild life on the premises and down the coast. However, amenities are not so great. Bathrooms are in need of refurbishing. Food is decent but not really good. The choices are limited.... More

*** Key caveat: I stayed at Asilomar during a heat wave that transformed the beach into a tropical destination. Freely admitting this is not a common outcome. *** I wasn't expecting much. It was <$200 on an October weekend and I was going to a wedding in Pebble Beach ... This place was cheaper than the local motels, so I... More

I have always wanted to stay at Asilomar. I lived in Monterey for a few months and spent a lot of time as a "local" hanging out at the State Beach and the Lodge by the fire. Now that I live elsewhere and I was touring on our motorcycle up and down the coast of California, I suggested we wind... More
