Just heard about this place and decided to stay for 2 nights. We loved it! It is very rustic, but so peaceful. Loved the walks on the grounds down to the beach. Our room was very nice - it was clean and very spacious. Our interactions with the staff were quite good - they were very helpful and pleasant. I... More

I've been attending various training events here for almost ten years now, and I have seen this place go through a few management transformations. The latest iteration seems to be the best for some time! This is a unique experience in that when you are here, the meals are provided cafeteria style, but with a gourmet flair! I always enjoy...

Mid week getaway. Most amazing location. Walk to beach, beautiful paths. Social center is cozy, great fireplace. Staff varied from excellent to nasty. A minor request for clarification resulted in a one sided meltdown. When I did not join in her anger, she only got more angry. Might have just been a bad day. Rooms are rustic but well kept....

This is a special place, the closest you can get to nature from a hotel. Our room was simple and rustic, surrounded by oaks, connected to nature. It is an old property with timeless design and architecture that offers a back in time visit that we so much enjoyed! A place that exhales Art & Crafts in communal buildings and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a wonderful experience. I like the idea of not having a TV in the room. Very relaxing! Quiet and Serene! Plus the beach is accessible. For sure, we'll stay again here next time!

I attended a conference for a week at Asilomar Conference Grounds. It is a sprawling complex of buildings, cottages, and pathways. Everything is very well marked and there are many parking lots. I was assigned to one of the lodging buldings called Woodside. The room was very adequate. We were told in advance that this is a retreat location and... More

Looking for inexpensive overnight lodging? Comparing to hotels in the area, this is perfect. State beach across the street which is great for catching a sunset. Quiet setting. They are tops in customer service: our room was not as pictured online (and extremely old and smelly like a nursing home! ), so we expressed frustration with front desk> leading to... More

We were on a mission to do all things "Steinbeck" and since he wrote at Asilomar-we had to stay there! Sita and Jose ( front desk) were just wonderful and so nice! Our room was simple, clean and quiet. The beds comfy and we could see and hear the ocean from our deck. We loved walking down the boardwalk to... More

The location is the only redeeming attribute. I was so excited when I booked this stay, but when we arrived at our room, that excitement dimmed. The bathroom was horrid. Our view was of a dead pine tree. It was embarrassing to have my family see the room. Also, when I booked the room online, my credit card was charged... More

I love anything with a little history. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here last week and just wish there had been availability for a 2nd night. We had a family room which the kids loved having their own twin beds. The bathroom was entirely funky, which we love. There was a separate shower room, a separate toilet room, and a... More
