The historic lodges were desgined by Julia Morgan and have a lot of character. Some rooms have fireplaces, and the lodge main rooms also have them. The main(central) lodge has a large fire place wth many rocking chairs, a pool table and chairs for reading or playing games. It's a short walk out to the boardwalk, beaches and tide pools... More

I'd skip Asilomar if you are thinking of a one-nighter--It's more hassle than it's worth. Orientation is a bit of a boggle as 107 acre grounds are huge, and roads and pathways meander. Asilomar is isolated so you will either have to jump in the car for food, or accept predatory pricing at the Cafe or Restaurant. Back in the... More

The lobby and the grounds are beautiful but the room let it down... The lobby has a huge log fire with some comfy rocking chairs and pool tables. You can grab a beer or glass of wine from the cafe in the lobby. The grounds are lovely. Little wooden paths lead you to the ocean. The room had a log... More

We bought a groupon to stay here, really had no idea what to expect and I believe that is the best way to go into staying here. They placed us on the first floor of Hearth Bldg. Granted it might have been because of the groupon/price associated with it....back of the property across from Asilomar Ave. Basically as far as... More

My family and I booked two rooms at the Asilomar for a weekend in January. We used a Groupon deal to get a reduced rate - even with the reduced price each room was $108 a night. Though we booked the rooms together with the same Asilomar agent over the phone (the groupon was for the rate - you still... More

Asilomar is a national park but the conference center and hotel are run by a private company. Upon checking in, we waited 45 minutes in line only to be told to go a different desk person. After searching for 20 minutes in her computer, and being told our reservation didn't exist, she finally found it. We found our cabin and... More

Perfect getaway from the rush rush of the city. Right near the beach, away from the main city. Surrounded by trees and wildlife. We saw two sets of deer. One was a whole family of deer! Adorable. The great hall is a fun place to gather, play pool, get wine or snacks. The rooms are so quiet and beds comfy.... More

For $200 a night, our experience was rather baffling. We arrived just in time for a memorial service on Saturday the 26th. The woman at the foot desk was not at all warm. Then the room was dirty, run down and quite dusty. The biggest surprise--it was overrun with ants! We changed clothes and rushed to the service. A few... More

Asilomar is so relaxing and beautiful. From the roaring fireplace in the large clubhouse, which often has live music, always has a great coffee shop, piano and pool tables and lots of chairs to sit and read or just relax. A short trip to the beach and the grounds are an adventure as well. Wildlife is plentiful and easy to... More

Was here for a week on a silent spiritual retreat. Its great for a conference though might not be so great for a vacation place. Rooms are kind of dated, mine had peeling paint. It was clean and room staff are great at doing the best they can. There are no TV's , phones , coffee machines or fridges in... More
