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!

Third time staying at the Asilomar Conference Grounds, and I would be tempted to stay again given the amazing location. Most the reviews have captured the plus's and minus's of staying here, but a few points from my last stay are worth sharing: 1) Rooms - I choose an historic room this time, and in retrospect it was not a...

Asilomar is one of the few places that I return to time and time again. It's used primarily as a conference center (I've attended one here) but they fill the vacant rooms with vacationers, so you may see people wandering about with lanyards and badges! Asilomar is like summer camp for adults. There are paths that allow you to stroll... More

I was part of the conference held here and really enjoyed everything they had provided to us as part of the conference. We had no issues with customer service at check in and check out - all was great, and as everyone has stated, the grounds are simply amazing, serene, magical. The room was what got to us. They truly... More

We stayed one night in a historical room, in the Stuck Up Cabin. It was in a wooded setting and part of a building with several rooms. The original floors, 6 windows made you feel a part of the natural setting. It was the only historic room left to rent, with a private bathroom, when I reserved it almost a... More
