Asilomar is lovely, convenient, but pricey. Rooms have no television or telephone, which wasn't a problem for me. Breakfast is not included and cost $14.00 extra. But the most disappointing aspect of Asilomar was that, after booking and rechecking my reservations several times, the front desk still had the reservations wrong. I booked for a small group, and had to...

The grounds are very nice and the lodging and grounds are a 5 minute walk to the beach at Pacific Grove. The rooms are large but plain, the bathrooms could use some updating, and the beds are comfortable, but IMHO there isn't anything spectacular about Asilomar other than the grounds and the location. We had a room with a queen...

I think the key to enjoying a stay at Asilomar is to have it very clear in your head exactly what the place is, and what it isn't. In a previous life one of my job duties was to help plan an annual conference at Asilomar, and to tabulate the results of the participant satisfaction survey. So years later, when...

I stayed here two nights in a newer room with a balcony and a fireplace. i stayed here a few years ago and was in an original arts and crafts room, which i initially was disappointed not to have this time. but, the balcony was so nice to have as was the fireplace. these rooms are dated but clean and...

We elected to stay in one of their historic rooms and it was exactly as presented on their web site... small, dark paneling, small bathroom and quaint. To be honest, next time I might opt for one of the new rooms instead. It's a great location and property and I'm generally a fan of historic properties.... but a little more...

Traveling through the Carmel/Monterey, California area, Asilomar is a unique place to stay. Asilomar is a "Conference Center" that caters to small and large groups for "Off-Site" Meetings. Asilomar is a great location for this, but a bit "dodgy" for a overnight hotel location. The good news; Asilomar is located right next to the small, charming City of Carmel, California...

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...

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...

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...

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...
