Once upon a time, We heard about the spartan accommodations at Asilomar. Ugh. However, we gave it a try and loved it. Great price point, wonderful hotel like rooms at the top of the hill - our preference. Fun breakfast buffet ( think college) and superlative location. Easy walk to the ocean....Trader Joes right up the street for snacks, etc.

The buildings are set up in clusters with easy walking to other buildings and facilities. Think of a college campus that isn't too spread out, but rustic wood 2-3 level buildings instead. No refrigerator, phone or TV in the regular rooms. I recommend you bring a cooler for beverages. Otherwise, just like any other hotel room, but older furniture. King...

This is a republish as I had forgotten I was logged into another account. We had the recent Thanksgiving day pleasure of visiting Pacific Grove. This location offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas in Monterey because it is on large grounds but fits into the environment quite well. It has several enticements for the...

The recent visit to Monterey-Pacific Grove brought me to this rustic location. They registered us in Longview North which did provide a remarkable view of the ocean. The room is small with bathroom. The feature of this convention center lodging is that from most of the buildings I'd say you are no further than 300 yards from the coastline with...

I've stayed here at least 4 times with and without friends and once for a conference. I love historical places and choose to stay in the historical buildings. Every time there was major construction on the grounds. Disrupts sleep and relaxation. Constant noise starting early and ending late. The grounds are in constant state of turmoil. The trees are being...

So happy I walked up to use the restroom while my son was surfing at Asilomar beach. I cancelled my other hotel reservations, and we stayed here for 3 days. Old California lodge style -- open beams, huge fireplace, great bedding, warm and inviting. It's perched right on the coast with an unbelievable 5 mile trail for hiking, running and...

This is an overpriced property in need of a complete renovation. The rooms we had were old with poor ventilation, cracked and chipped woodwork and tile and the hall ways looked like a Holiday Inn right out of the 70's and not updated since then. Food was below average and the staff could care less if they helped you or...

Peaceful, Serene, beautiful, wonderful staff. The room we stayed in was towards the back of the property. Didn't see anyone on the grounds the first night! The rooms are quite outdated but the grounds are amazing. It's a state park but feels more like a national park. The main lodge and cafe are really great. They make the food on...

I was here at this facility the weekend of Labor Day 2016. The location is great and I believe their location is their greatest asset. The facility is clearly old, there are many things that needs renovation and TLC. My room was very spacious but the whole building smells old, the carpet was old and the bed was not comfortable...

The good: The views, birds singing in the trees, comfy king sized bed, quality of the food was yummy. Wine at the cafe was excellent. Overall, a good value for the money. The bad: No fridge in the room, the decor of the rooms is straight outta the 70's--get ready for a flash back if you lived through the questionable...
