Nothing

We knew it would be rustic and not have much in the way of amenities. But not being able to get coffee (none in room or on premises; closest commercial establishment a 10 min drive) was tough.

unfortunately a very beautiful place but this hotel is very expensive and the AC didn't work, no fridge, no microwave, no usb connection, woww, I didn't like it ....

The outside facade looked nice, other than that it was horrible.

Room was simple and clean. Surroundings were peaceful, beautiful, and close to the ocean. We felt like we needed to whisper, because it was so quiet. Just what we needed to unwind!

Stairs and carpets leading to rooms needs updating/sanding/painting.

Many ants found in the bathroom, very poor wi-fi connection

Great pool! Short (board)walk to beautiful beach. Dog friendly. Black-tailed deer ambling thru property.

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable . However, the accommodation overall was disappointing. The block we were put into was quite far away from the resort centre overlooking a builder's merchants with the grounds, car park and accommodation block open to the public. We felt insecure whilst we were there. This was exacerbated by the fact the safe in the room did not work and despite promises by the management was not fixed for us. No phone or tea making facility. The accommodation is clean and comfortable but basic and very much in in need of modernisation.

Amazing space for tranquility combined with opportunity to walk on dunes/beach. Near town but feels far from everyday stresses of the world. The historic buildings echo a time past. Lodge offers space to mingle with others but seclusion and nature only a few steps away. Staff friendly, helpful, and seemed to enjoy their work. Room rates reasonable. I’ll be back😊 Downside was high cost of meals.

I like this hotel for it location and ammentities. Lots to do with using a car.

Great location and staff! It is my "Refuge By The Sea" as the name Asilomar stands for....

This is a great place to stay if you keep a few things in mind. 1.This is a conference center and a CA state park. Conditions are more primitive, with dated furnishings and a bit of a walk to your room door. 2.Yes, it is more expensive than one would expect, but this is CA -everything is expensive. Realize where you are! This is one of the most beautiful, unspoiled stretches of beach in the world!! The Inn at Spanish Bay is just down the coast, and their starting charge was almost 5 times what I spent for my night here. 3. You may be tempted to rush out and do the tourist things -Monterey Bay Aquarium, the art galleries in Carmel, but take the time to enjoy where you are. Walk around the complex and enjoy the unique architecture. Walk on the boardwalk and look at the flowers. Walk on the beach and let the peace fill you soul.

While the proximity to the beach is nice, we were on the first floor and there were constantly other guests strolling the grounds and could see right into our room. Our room also didn’t have a TV or a coffee maker and microwave.
