the property is very pleasant and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. Nature surrounds the grounds and the beach is only steps away.

Beautiful location and facility for a nice stay

Pros: Beautiful location
Cons: Coffee maker in room!! With tea, since that is what I drink.
My daughters and I needed a place to stay overnight when we went to a family wedding. The Asilomar was perfect for us. The grounds were beautiful and I wish we had more time to explore them. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was adequate for our needs. The only thing missing for me was a coffee maker in the room. A little amenity that I always appreciate.

Dissapointed

We were looking forward to our trip and staying at this beautiful property only to be put in the furthest building on the property behind HR and next to facilities not even near the main entrance and had to park on the city street because there was not a parking lot for our building (woodside). I arrived at check in right at 4:00 so can't see it being a case of no other rooms being available. The building we were in was very old and dirty. There were visible stains on the carpets and there was a 2 inch gap under our front door so spiders came in our room. We were also the only ones in our building until around 8:30 when another group arrived. We aren't snobby, high maintenance people and knew it was a historic hotel and saw what the photos looked like online but in person they did not look like this. Maybe it's just the woodside building which adds to our feeling that we were shooed off to this building because we had a preschooler with us or because we got a large discount on the night through travelocity. I really, really wanted to love asilomar but am just left dissapointed.

Nice, but not as anticipated

Pros: The staff, in particular at reception, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and hospitable.
Cons: A better description of the minimalism of the room (no TV, fridge, microwave, desk, etc.) and distance from the beach--more detailed ad
Location: Fishwife is just off the grounds and serves great seafood; the beach drive was gorgeous; Monterey has lots of fun sites and activities
The grounds are located on a peninsula with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, and the bed was comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly, and it seemed like there were many amenities for long-term guests. Not necessarily suitable for overnight guests, as we didn't have time to take advantage of these amenities, and the room was pretty basic. (I was hoping for a romantic night by the beach, but beach access was somewhat complicated and the room was not very aesthetically stimulating.) These grounds are probably great for long-term stays and large groups--not the best choice for overnight business or leisure travelers.

More dorm like than a hotel.

Simple setting in a wonderful state park. Room was clean except walls were very scuffed and need cleaning. Beach setting is beautiful. Staff is very helpful.
