“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Stayed here just one night driving from northern cal to LA. It's a beautiful property and owned by the Peninsula Group in Hongkong so we had high expectations. The room was beautiful and large, the bedding wonderful and the bathroom excellent. There were numerous places to plug in my many devices. The only issues were there was a great gas fire place in the room and the pilot light made a crackling sound all night (we got used to that) but the serious issue is there is a frosted glass window next to the entry door and the outside walkway is lit up all night, so the light actually shined into the room all night and the room never became dark! A darker frosted glass would solve that problem. A minor issue was in our room 143 we had a great balcony overlooking the pool but a pepper tree completely blocked the view; it really should be trimmed. Overall a great hotel and the staff was excellent.

The hotel is ~5miles inland from Carmel. Grounds are very beautiful; rooms & bathrooms are spacious with no nonsense comfortable interior. I felt very lucky we didn't stay in Monterey or Carmel: we paid short visits to both towns for lunch and brief shopping. It was cold and foggy, while we enjoyed beatiful sun and seventy+ weather. We don't play golf, but the property is great for walks.
The hotel and a shopping mall across the street offer very limited options for meals & snacks. Plenty of shops/ restaraunts/ grocery stores within 3-5 miles.

Recently stayed here for a weekend and has such a pleasant time. It's a very nice and well-maintained resort. I loved the grounds - it felt secluded, quiet and very peaceful. I liked that it's not as big of a resort as say Carmel Valley Ranch (although I still love CVR). It felt more intimate and felt like we had the place to ourselves. Enjoyed the amenities - fitness center, heated pool and complimentary continental breakfast. The room we stayed was in great condition and very spacious. Staff were attentive and nice but stayed out of your way which I liked. Also liked the location - you can easily access Carmel Valley Road and Cabrillo Highway if you want go by the sea. There are also some wineries/tasting rooms nearby - one of them, Boete Tasting Room is only steps away from the lodge. Overall, a very nice and relaxing stay.

We stayed at Quail Lodge recently while on a golfing pilgrimage to Carmel. The resort is fabulous and such good value. The prices are 3 star but the services and facilities are 4 star plus. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the TVs state of the art.
We enjoyed dinner at Edgar's on the first night of our stay and could not fault the quality of food nor service. Highly recommended. We also visited, for a bit of fun, the Baja Cantina over the road which offers a Mexican alternative with a bustling conviviality and atmosphere.

We had a weekend getaway here when my boyfriend's company had a Christmas party and we extended the stay. The property is clearly newly redone and everything is cozy, contemporary and comfortable. Our bungalow style room was perfect and peaceful, and everyone on property was extremely friendly and helpful. What an off-season gem to find!

The large screen Smart TV in the room was incredible and as a frequent traveler nothing I had ever seen before at any other hotel. It's like watching 3D with no glasses required. Our room had a beautiful golf course view with a patio. The Keureg Coffee maker in the room was also a nice touch. Two thumbs way up! We'll be back.

Room Tip: Request a room with a golf course view.

I attended a birthday brunch at Quail today and it was a great expereince in every way.
The private room in the main lodge has two levels, beautiful rustic decor with large windows and a deck more than ample to accommodate our group of 50 for cocktails before and after brunch. The private buffet lunch was beatuifully presented and delicious. Service was efficient and friendly. Quail's renovation is beautiful and the setting is lovely. We stayed to enjoy the view and atmosphere from the deck with wine and friends. A perfect Sunday afternoon.
