“Enjoyed our stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We took advantage of their golf/spa special. We had a nice clean updated room, hardwood floors and a king bed with high quality bedding. Bathroom was large with lots of light and mirrors, great shower and HUGE bathtub. We were very comfortable and had a relaxing stay. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We had great maid service also!
Husband says their course is nice but short and narrow with a lot of water. There are also at least 2 good restaurants walkable across the street- quiet area but still managed to have a wonderful weekend! If you want a neat spa experience, check out the Refuge which is a short drive up the road- I highly recommend for a very relaxing time-we got passes with the special.

Room Tip: Very quiet-No traffic noise in 121, but some pool noise in 122

My family and I stayed due to the good reviews and the high cost of the Carmel valley lodge where we normally stay, but it was a dissapointing experience, although our dog enjoyed it. Got a garden suite and an adjacent two queens room, the garden suite is very nice but we were literally 10 yards from the road which has become fairly busy. The two queen room was suppossed to connect but it didnt. The standard rooms are very boxy and confining. Also had a triangular type window at the top which couldnt be covered by curtains letting light in at 6AM. The staff was limited and very young and not real friendly or informed. The exercise rooms are split into three little rooms which is really a dumb format. The carmel valley lodge is more expensive but it is clearly superior to this locale. Whoever redesigned this place did a strange job.

Room Tip: Avoid the suites and rooms in the 170 to 180 area right next to the road

The staff and location are the best. Rooms are very large and set up with a high end feel. Close to Monterey and Carmel make a great location. On site golf course is beautiful and a challenge for all golf er's. also are pet friendly. There is a putting course around all rooms .

Quail Lodge re-opened recently -- I guess under new management. And they have done a great job. We don't travel anywhere without our Golden Retriever (a therapy-dog in training), and they made all of us feel more than welcome. Our Retriever even received his own goody-bag -- with a blanket, toy, and all the trappings. A really, really nice touch.

Our room was superb -- upgraded, renovated, the whole nine yards. We received a rather cold reception when we checked in -- not rude, just not friendly and warm. But after that, everyone couldn't have been nicer. Our housekeeper was great, as was the young man from Fiji handing out towels at the pool.

We can't afford their rack rates...but we were able to get a Stay-And-Play package that was truly a great value. And the golf course was in perfect shape.

A nice breakfast buffet, free parking, free internet -- really really nice touches.

We loved our stay at Quail, and if we can find a great package in the future, there's no doubt we will be back. They are first-rate all the way.

Room Tip: Ask for a room without a second floor overhead -- should be much quieter.

The Quail Lodge is much nicer than equivalently priced properties in the surrounding area, being 10 minutes from Monterey or Carmel town.

Great, large rooms, nice beds, super clean. Huge ceilings, huge bathroom.

Not much for restaurant facilities, but Monterey or Carmel are nearby

We enjoyed a golf package, beautifully maintained course. The room was clean and lovely. Loved the outdoor seating next to the pool. We just heard the people above us walking around, so book a room on the 2nd floor if possible. Continental breakfast was good; cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, fresh fruit, packaged muffins, bread, bagels.

we had stayed at the quail lodge in the past and were disappointed when it closed, and then while searching where to stay in Carmel, i found that it had reopened, and much to my pleasant surprise, at a special opening rate of $135 per night for a beautiful , clean and spacious room.
I know the rates will go up, but it is worth the visit to get out of the congestion of downtown Carmel, and they take pets too.
