Wonderful so close to the ocean. Can hear the waves crashing on the shore. Beautiful historic buildings. Room had a musty smell. Hard to control temperature in room.

    This property is a unique, historic place in Monterey well-worth preserving. Unfortunately, the current vendor, Aramark, is doing an underwhelming job of keeping it in acceptable condition. We requested a room in one of the historic, Julia Morgan-built buildings and were put in a room that should not be rented because it is on top of an incredibly loud boiler room; we did not realize how loud it was until we came back into the room after spending the evening out; had to move at midnight because of noise and floor vibration. When I called the front desk to ask why the noise, she said the room was directly over the boiler. No one should be placed in that room and it was particularly thoughtless since there were many other rooms available. Food at Asilomar used to be great. The breakfast at 20 dollars was truly awful. The small cafe was better but understaffed. Staff seemed unhappy in general, a departure from previous stays. If you stay here, do it realizing you are having the experience of staying in an incredible setting. Request a room away from the boiler rooms. Eat anywhere else!!!
