Pros: The Place is really wonderful - The front desk staff are passive- ok not rude but not very friendly ...
Cons: BIG COMPLAINT IS NOT WITH THE ASILOMAR- IT IS WITH IS WITH BOOKINGS.COM- DUE TO BOOKNG WITH THIS CONNECTION WE HAD TO PAY EXTRA FOR OUR BREAKFAST!! THIS WAS NOT CLEAR IN THE BOOKING, AND IT WILL SERIOUSLY BRING INTO QUESTION MY USE OF THIS SYSTEN IN THE FUTURE!! I FIND THIS EXTRA CHANGE OUT OF LINE!! THE LODGE AND FACILITY IS ALWAYS A DELIGHT - SO FOR NOW ON I WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THEM AND AVOID AT ALL COST- BOOKINGS,COM -

Pros: Good location but don't look only at this
Cons: I know that the sound of a classic building designed by Julia Morgan and built between 1913 and 1928 sounds exciting but let's be realistic: If you are not into californian architecture history you never heard from Mrs. Morgan until you Googled it today and you should expect small rooms with old forniture, so what's the point? Somehow I was convinced by the reviews in booking.com particularly because of the location - yes it is good location next to the beach - so we stayed at a double classic room wishing for an experience traveling to the past and I wish I didn't. These rooms smell funny, and I mean bad. The wood cracking of the rooms upstairs hardwood floors did not allow us to rest properly and this is the case throughout these old buildings. The room was clearly a single room where they added a double bed, with almost no room to lay our suitcase open on the floor. I regret accepting to splash out the eye-watering $219 a night which became even more painful after the post-Brexit effects on the GBP (ok, it was summer and the original price was $186 but you have to add a tax, and another tax, and something else tax...). Also, bear in mind that they don't have laudry services which you may need if doing a road trip. If you still decide to stay here I suggest you go for the new(er) rooms where you may actually get some rest. And make sure you clarify how the payment will be done. According to booking they charged directly through them so they won't need your credit card. However, we were asked at the hotel to pay at check out and of course we were charged twice, so make sure you understand it because in reception they don't! And take a sweater, it is California but it is chilly there.
