Our family group of 22 spent 3 nights at Asilomar in August. The Good--the location is beautiful, the grounds are well kept, and the beach is wonderful. There are lovely boardwalks leading to the beach. Our family group had a private barbecue dinner outside the Lodge and it was very well done. Good food selections and a bonfire and smores... More

If you're looking for luxury lodging, this is not the place. It's rustic but comfortable. Came for a staff retreat. Pluses: - My room was comfortable and clean. - Swimming pool! - Food was okay. - They have pits for bonfires (great for S'mores!). - It's super close to the beach. - Free wi-fi. Minuses: - Some people didn't have... More

Asilomar is beautiful, the ocean is just down the path and there are deer everywhere. We had breakfast and one dinner there and the food was excellent. Family style dining so you get to meet other guests. This was our second stay, first time in the historical rooms, this time in the updated rooms. The rooms seem dated and could... More

We have been coming here since our honeymoon (25 yrs) and while there have been improvements in the property, the customer service has gone down the drain. Both people managing the front desk were not very nice. They now charge for views. We booked room with the intention of having view and we were buried in the back. A few... More

This was my second visit to Asilomar conference grounds. I'm sorry we didn't stay longer than the two days we were there. The atmosphere and close proximity to nature and the beach is what keeps us coming back. The rustic feel of the grounds are great. Walking along the endless boardwalks and then returning to the grounds as they were... More

After staying in Santa Monica and visiting LA for 4 days...then coming up the Pacific Coast Highway...this place was like HOME for us! We are from Cape Cod. Asilomar has sand dunes and pine trees and you can hear the ocean waves outside your room! It is rustic...but we loved that! Trails to walk in the sand dunes, right down... More

The hotel occupies a huge area. Rooms are spread along small buildings, so try to get a room close to the reception if possible. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. No TV or phones but good wi-fi connection. The hotel is pretty, the very large lobby area counts with some games, pool tables and a large fireplace. Forest all around... More

Nature there is so beautiful, the site is peaceful and serene. The rooms are rustic but comfortable. I have been there three times already and would love to go back. For me it is pure magic to breathe in the ocean breeze and walk on the beach. If you are looking for modern and stylish this is not the place... More

Arts and Crafts buildings designed by architect Julia Morgan, a fresh ocean breeze with easy access to the Pacific Ocean, whale-watching tours, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, hiking trails, an abundance of deer, sea gulls, otters and other ocean life, and plenty of other attractions make the Asilomar Conference Grounds an attractive site for either a family vacation, business conference or...

Stayed in room with fireplace. Two double beds. Yes, it needs updated...the bathroom. All in all, very unique, serene place. We had a problem with one of the locks on the door and the baseboard heater BUT the maintenance staff was very quick to fix these and very friendly!
