Napa, California6 contributions8 helpful votes
The room was dated and shabby. Not worth the price we paid at all. The bathroom was greatly in need of an update. You could tell the bathroom was quite old due to the landline port in the wall. The bed was nice, but the pillows were uncomfortable.

Hotel's Favorite
A good experience for any family that is interested in staying a little further away from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and Monterey. The 9-hole putting green was a great activity for our family of four and the amenities like the pool and fitness center was perfect, even on a rainy cold day. The staff were very friendly even at Edgars, which we had to order food from since Covey Grill was closed for maintenance. We recommend staying there if you want to be further away from the hustle and bustle of a downtown.

Can't say enough great things! As a local, surrounded by so many wonderful hotels and resorts, Quail is always my favorite. Their spacious bungalows, their breathtaking views of the ponds and the greens, their abundance of amenities, and most importantly their service. I always feel welcome, but on this most recent trip, Karlton blew me away with his care and graciousness. He sent personalized amenities to my room for myself, husband and son, showing genuine interest. His professionalism shines though and you can tell he enjoys what he is doing. You have found a true gem! Thank you for the memories! Can't wait to come back!

Our stay was absolutely delightful. I booked the rooms through Expedia which came with $55 dollar credit for food and beverage. We stayed a total of two nights, celebrating our wedding anniversary. When we checked in lovely receptionist Jenny complimentary upgraded us to a bigger room with a view. They also gave us a small champagne bottle for our celebration. The customer service is excellent and they checked with us through the txt msg through out the whole stay. The property itself is huge with a great restaurant that serves delicious food. I also checked out their gym which has new upgraded lifefitness equipment. There is also a heated pool and amazing golf course. Little oasis and we will definitely be back!

We had a great time and enjoyed the beauty and serenity of a Bungalow with lake view. The fitness area was private, the pool was a perfect 85 degrees and the steam room was fantastic! We ordered room service and were pleasantly surprised by great food and their meal presentation was a very nice surprise. All in all, we are looking forward to our next trip.

Clean and welcoming place, rooms are very spacious and many have small patio looking out at the golf course. It was relaxing and comfortable. Glad they were dog friendly as well. Located near many tourist attractions. Definitely recommended and will return next time!

What a spectacular resort! We have stayed there three times in the past two months and were blown away by the beauty of the grounds, the excellent large rooms and the excellent service. The Covey Grill restaurant is superb with views over the lake and golf course. This is an exceptional place to stay when you're headed to Carmel!

This is the third time I've had the pleasure of coming to Quail Lodge. It's been consistently wonderful. I was here for business and I have to say....their event staff are wonderful. We worked with Adrienne and she was so attentive and helped with a few last minute shuffles due to weather. Outside of the event details....this is just a lovely property. The beds are so comfortable and rooms are really large, comfortable, quiet, and perfect. Oh, the food is really amazing at both Covey Grill as well as Edgars. I don't know that our work guests will want to try any other property in the future! Thank you Quail Lodge! I'm a fan!
