We stayed here over the July 4th weekend. Its quiet environment and close proximity to the beach make it a good choice for family retreat. The rooms are sparsely furnished. As advertised, there's no TV or phone in the room, but free WiFi is available. Another inconvenience is that they only have a couple of ice machines (freezers) for the entire site. It's also very dark outside the buildings at night, so you might have some trouble getting around. Breakfast is included but it's just average. The lines might be long if there are large groups around. Its price in general is not cheap, but it would be a bargain during the Monterey Car Week in August as all other hotels and motels jack up their rates to some ridiculous prices.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

If you want beautiful views, a peaceful place to relax, the perfect place for yourself or the family, then Asilomar is for you and yours. I just got back after three days of attending a conference. It's hard to believe I was at work and yet I am so relaxed. The grounds are large so getting some exercise is a given, but the scenery is so beautiful and the fresh air is amazing. The rooms are comfortable, not luxurious, but have all the necessary amenities. The beach is just steps away. Even the deer come out and play. I went two years ago with my family and had a terrific time also. Work or play I recommend Asilomar for a great place to stay when going on a vacation that is more relaxation than get up and go.

Room Tip: Upstairs to get a good view of the beach or Pebble Beach golf course.

We have stayed at Asilomar four times and love the ambience; relaxed, great views, the ocean at your doorstep, wildlife. The gamble , if you are not with a group, is that you cannot specify the room block that you would like. Some are a lot more modern than others. Some are downright gloomy.
This time we had a nice room in a more modern block, with a balcony and views of deer and squirrels close by.
Our room had two double beds, but there was no reading light at the second bed. The sliding door to the balcony was badly corroded and very difficult to latch closed, so they installed a drop-down bar instead of fixing the door. The shower head was encrusted and would not move from one position. Taps were all set to deliver a thin stream of water, in the name of conservation; however, all it does is make you use twice as much of the thin stream. Two basins and a very efficient bathroom extractor fan.
There is no TV in the rooms but it is being considered. WiFi was available in our room but was a bit weak.
Breakfast is no longer included in the price of the room and costs $14 per person. It is a good breakfast but choice is now more limited than before....only one choice of egg, and is expensive for those who wish to have a light breakfast. To cater for the light breakfast there is now a small, but nice cafe in the visitor center, with oatmeal, fruit and pastries, as well as coffee.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in a more modern block. Avoid the older rooms.

The view alone gives Asilomar four stars. I attended a CTA seminar here and the facilities are great for this type of event. It is a large, spread-out facility with numerous meeting rooms of all sizes. There are a couple of large fire pits with huge wire mesh cages over the top and a fair size supply of fire wood (we ran out both nights but we like big fires.) The meals were acceptable but not stellar. Great beach to walk on and a very short drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium, restaurants, etc.

I was able to join my DH at a conference/if I paid my meals etc. October might not have been the best time--cold and fog, but the sea and deer were lovely. Room could use an update, and BTW our bathroom had too much mold and on the unclean side. Meals were like the cafeteria at Yosemite---lunch good, the rest awful. Super location, but too expensive for what you get. Would not stay there again.

Room Tip: closer to main area
