I have stayed here twice now and it has been enjoyable. The grounds are very rustic and pretty. I have seen lots of deer. The walk to the beach is nice as well. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. I came here for a quilting retreat both times and I also think it would be a fun place to have... More

We stayed at Asilomar a few years ago and loved it. Finally able to both get rooms and have our son, his wife & 3 year old son join us. We've now stayed in both the historic & "more modern" rooms. In general they are clean, we had issues in the historic room with the heater but a very efficient... More

Stayed here for valentines day. booked on line was fairly priced good for this day. The grounds is huge like cabins every where. We were booked in to the Sands & surf building which I think were the oldest of all buildings. You can hear the neighbors talking, walls were super thin. But it had a Crystal lake feel. The... More

This property is just beautiful ! It sits on the edge of the beach - during the day you walk over and at night when it's quiet you hear the crashing of the waves. From beginning to the end I didn't have any complains! The rooms are older and sparsely decorated - no tv ( wow!) and just functional. But... More

Our stay at the Asilomor Conference grounds, was so soothing. The accommodations freed one from the pull of television, the daily grind of co workers, and bossy bosses, allowing you to think ( go figure). It is located in a forest like environment, directly across the street is the Pacific Ocean and only a couple miles from shopping, Monterey cannery... More

My girlfriends and I wanted a get away in Pacific Grove, but didn't want to spend a great amount, so we booked a historic room at Asilomar. This place is beautiful with old charm. The location near the beach, shopping, attractions, and restaurants is perfect. We had 3 twin beds and plenty of room. We will come back!

This is my 3rd trip to this conference center as a private guest during the Christmas holidays (Been there many times as part of a conference.) Stayed in the historic, rustic rooms designed by Julia Morgan in the 1920s. Lovely new beds in smallish rooms,but the downstairs 'sitting room' has its own comfy seating area and large fireplace that staff... More

This place has quite a history such as hosting the famous 1975 conference on recombinant DNA. The location can hardly be more beautiful behind the dunes of Asilomar State Park with the conifer flavored air and deer running wild on the grounds. The housing is rustic and have a summer camp feeling to it. The service was very good, while... More

The gorgeous grounds and historic buildings of Julia Morgan's Asilomar Conference Center have been a part of our family history, albeit a scattered history, for decades. Alas, our last return, with 20-something kids in tow, during Christmas "dead week," was a shadow of its former glory. First the good -- no great! -- stuff. Location. Location. Location. It's right out... More

These historic accommodations on the attractive conference grounds are just lovely to look at, but some of the rooms are showing their age. We had no problems with our room, but another guest a few doors away had a problem with their toilet that required attention in the middle of the night. Our room was small and the bathroom tiny....
