Stayed here for a family reunion and it was amazing! Fireplaces in every room, not a tv in sight, the beach just a short walk away, walking paths all around and deers roaming the grounds. Just amazing! The staff was incredibly friendly at every interaction! Overall perfect experience!

My daughter discovered that Asilomar now lets the public rent rooms not occupied by conference attendees -- and what a wonderful discovery that was! I attended several retreats and conferences there as a young woman and student, and we all, English teachers, church youth group members, loved Asilomar. It was designed by Julia Morgan for the YWCA beginning in 1913... More

We had a great visit at Asilomar. We loved the location being so close to the beach. The area is quiet with pretty scenery. The rooms are spacious. The walls are a little thin, but didn't effect our trip. I liked the Social Hall. We would stay there again.

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 Rooms are sparse and outdated by 30 years.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
