TravelPod Member ReviewsAsilomar Conference Grounds Pacific Grove
Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.
