We were three couples travelling around California in June 2014. Having just come from a 2-night stay at Inn at Spanish Bay, and having no information on Quail Lodge other than TripAdvisor reviews, we had no idea what to expect. What a surprise!! The grounds are spectacular, the rooms some of the best I have seen, and the staff wonderful. We only stayed one night but we all agreed that if we came back to California, a much longer stay at this resort would be a must. We did not go to Edgar's, yet we had the most fantastic meal/experience at the Mexican patio directly across the street...what a treat! The location is perfect...a short distance to Carmel, a stunning National Park for hiking, Monterey and Big Sur. The breakfast "buffet" was the best 'included' buffet I had ever had...all organic and many fresh options. So happy we chose to book based on TripAdvisor reviews...it didn't disappoint!! Amazing value for the money we paid!!!!!
