              We like nature and the ocean, there's trails to go to the beach, very good location.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Beautiful grounds surrounded by pine trees. Easy walk to the beach. Convenient store for any forgotten items. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Rooms were large too. Breakfast was good. Round tables encouraged conversation with table mates. Very quiet surroundings and friendly people. No tv meant time to read or take walks. Nice pool. Great value for the budget minded price.

              We didn't have a problem with the style of the rooms but if you're expecting luxury, this is not the place to come.

              Location

              Value for money : rather expensive for what you get! They add a resort fee even if you stay only one night and have no time to utilise them. Breakfast was very poor : little choice and very unpleasant dining room. I will not recommend this hotel.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Superb location right on the beach. The staff is very professional and went out of their way for us. On site meals were very good. Parking is free, easy, and close to rooms. Nice, large grounds to stroll and just across road from beach. Julia Morgan architecture is historical and everywhere. The Social Hall is large and very inviting with its fireplace, pool tables, and free wi-fi.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              The feel of the Asilomar conference grounds is timeless due largely to the great architecture of Julia Morgan and her reponse to a fantastic setting next to the ocean at Pacific Grove. The lack of TV facilities in the room was great, and the sense of quiet maturity was wonderful.

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              Nice location

              They tried to tack on 22 dollars per person per day for a breakfast .'wasn't disclosed when I booked. Facility was overpriced for just a bed..

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              The hotel was set in a National Park and thus the scenery was beautiful. It was close to the beach and 7 Mile drive.

              The complex was over priced for what it was and certainly not what we expected from the description. It had a school camp feel about it especially as we had to queue up for hot breakfast and got a plate with three things on it. There was one choice - take it or leave it. We also sat at tables of 8 rr 10. Accommodation was very basic but I understand that the venue has certain restrictions it must follow to be inkeeping with the park rules. Unfortunately we visited at a particularly busy weekend. Staff were obviously very busy and not particularly helpful.

              Amazing location on the beach on tip of Monterey Peninsula. Wildlife and beautiful grounds and surroundings. Terrific restaurants within a short drive.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Even though we only stayed one night because we were there for golf, the peacefulness after a round of golf was relaxing to go out and do a quiet walk with my husband on the grounds and out to the beach. Sleep was restful, and the community bond aspect was an added feature to the experience. Breakfast in the morning was fun being seated with people and gave us a chance to mingle, even though we had to rush through to a tee time, but we felt relaxed and at ease. I would enjoy another stay at the grounds maybe for 2 nights to experience more of what Asilomar had to offer.

              I personally didn't mind it too much and we didn't use the fireplace, but the fireplaces gave out the smell of smoke that lingered in the room, leaving your clothes smelling like you were camping. But all in all having them was a nice touch.

              6.6

              Location was great! Views were great! Staff very friendly.

              The rooms are very dated, carpets faded, cob webs in the lamp shades, you can hear people trending across the balcony to get to there rooms, sounds like thunder!

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Proximity to beach

              Too much variation in rooms and no ability to choose. Some had one king bed some two twins or fulls or queens some had balconies and views

            • Family with children
              9.6

              With a beautiful beach directly across the street and lodges that fit so nicely into the environment, Asilomar is a wonderful place to explore. The rooms are modest but extremely clean and comfortable. Great value for the cost.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Asilomar is a beautiful conference ground with very nice, clean and comfortable rooms. The grounds are lovely to walk around with easy access to the beach and breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline. Although we didn't take advantage of the dining facilities, breakfast, lunch and dinner are available at the dining hall during set hours. Also a nice coffee shop with "to go" options if you miss the scheduled dining hours as we did. The location is great with easy access to all Monterey / Pacific Grove attractions and easy entrance to the 17 mile drive. This was our second stay.

              In our room there was no phone, although we carried our cell phones.

            • Single
              10.0

              The setting, how quiet it was, the boardwalk down to the ocean, the natural grounds, the old Julia Morgan buildings

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              It feels like you are in the mountains and at the beach at the same time.

              Shower had mold around the edges (a little bleach would help)
