We had a conference at Asilomar. The venue was efficient -- smooth audio/video presentations, lectures in a chapel(!). True olde world charm, not an artificial all-look-alike hotel. For a three-day meeting the food was fine but some items -- e.g., bacon strips -- could surely be better. The scrambled eggs for breakfast on all days was a shade boring. The salads were good. They served iced tea at mealtimes and it was not always easy to ask for and get plain water. From other reviews it appears that they rotate the same menu, which is okay unless one is staying for really long. Didn't miss the TV in the room but a phone -- even an intercom -- would come in handy. The table clock had a radio but that was not in good shape. Rooms are well furnished. Mine had heating, which was needed -- in May -- and in good working order. The room walls are not very thick but wasn't ever a bother. The architecture and the surroundings are superb but we had little time to even explore the beach. Most importantly, the staff were very courteous and helpful.
