Have been through the park on the way to the beach, many times, but the 1st stay. It was nice I just miss a t.v. (sorry)! Breakfast was 1st class, and all the people were very nice and helpful! Beautiful State Park!!!

Beautiful and relaxingPosted Jul 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms are no frills but it doesn't matter. It is close to the beach, the views are fantastic and it is quiet and relaxing. If you're looking to get away, take a walk on the beach, or relax in the serenity of the grounds....it's perfect. You can rent bikes, play pool or ping pong......very enjoyable

Slice of naturePosted Jul 9, 2013
Location: You are within driving distance to Point Lobos Park, Monterey Bay Aquarium and a host of other picturesque places to visit.
I found the rooms comfortable and clean. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful to walk through with the ocean a five minute walk from my room. Since it was a relatively quiet period, the experience was very relaxing. I have been to Asilomar on several occasions and cannot find an equivalent place to stay.

MehPosted Jul 1, 2013
Great location but this hotel reminded me of a hostel. Everything was dated and a bit dingy. I wouldn't mind staying here if the price had been reasonable but there are better and cheaper options.

Nice hotel but the rooms and beds are small.Posted Jun 24, 2013
Pros: The hotel is near the ocean and it has a great lodge with a cafe. The setting could not be nicer.
Cons: Don't give out small rooms to couples on a romantic stay.
Location: The Fish Wife is a restaurant that should be visited. Their clam chowder is to die for.
I have stayed at Asilomar a couple of times. This last time my pregnant partner and I planned a stay a few months in advance. When we arrived we were given a double bed. All of our other stays were in a king sized bed. The double was too small for me as my feat hung over the edge. My pregnant partner filled up the bed all by herself. We found ourselves in an untenable situation. The room that we were initially given was cramped and small. It was geared to two people on a business trip. The queen sized room was much nicer and more suited to a couple. We were given another room but it was a pain to have to go through the process and anxiety of asking the front desk if they had anything free on a weekend.

This is NOT a hotelPosted Jun 18, 2013
Cons: Everything. Start by calling it what it is - its a 'camp' or a 'dorm', its NOT a hotel.
Location: The location is at the far edge of the city and if you seriously think having a few trees around makes it 'beautiful' you need to travel more
We arrived and were surprised to immediately realize that the Expedia description of the place was WAAAAY out. This is not a hotel; this is a collection of dorms and a central check-in area. The photos on the expedia description are mainly of the check-in area and are not indicative of the rest of the place. The rooms are dorms set some way from the check-in area and are about as basic as you can think of. Apart from looking like they were decorated in the 1970's, there is no TV, no AC, paper thin walls and the general state of the furniture reminded me of the hall of residence at the University I attended in the 80's. The staff were obviously used to be being told the place was awful as they had the 'couldn't care less' attitude you get with people who have been complained to so many times it washes over them. Yes, there is a sea view but its on the coast - everywhere has a sea view. Its certainly not close to the sea. And its about as far away from the city center as possible (about 5 miles by car). Awful. Utterly awful.
