The Lowdown

Hit the links at Quail Lodge & Golf Club, and then see that there’s a whole lot more than pristine golfing where that came from. This Carmel-by-the-Sea getaway knows how to show you a good time, on or off the green, with a pool, a bocce court and a Land Rover driving school. If you do want to take on the 18-hole championship course, instructors are on hand; if you’d rather learn tennis, there are two pros to conduct your lessons, on one of three newly refurbished courts.
Winner of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, Quail Lodge puts you in the heart of the beautiful Monterey Peninsula, close to beautiful shorelines, redwood-shaded trails, vineyards for wine tastings and restaurants for sumptuous meals. Back on the property, though, you’ll find hearty fireside farm-to-table fare at Edgar’s and drinks at the lobby bar. When tired, crash on a pillow-top mattress; when energized, head out for a session of cabana yoga. This sprawling resort really has thought of everything, down to a tee.

Rooms and suites

 Chic décor, modern furnishings and sleek wooden accents define these rooms, which are set within lush Cali surroundings that you can enjoy from a private patio or balcony. Neutral palettes and pillow-top mattresses help create a welcoming retreat, and assorted extras are available for your convenience. Superior rooms are 396 square feet and offer your choice of one king or two queen beds. Garden King suites, meanwhile, are much more spacious, ranging from 638 to 750 square feet, and come with an extra sofa bed. Both of these room types offer a patio, where you can take in the pretty scenery. 


Edgar’s at Quail serves fresh ingredients from the region’s own organic farms, paired with sustainable seafood, for lunch and dinner. Helping the eatery live up to its OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice honors, savory menu items include Californian flatbreads, Santa Cruz-caught sand dabs and house-made gnocchi. For a quick refuel, Quail’s Nest snack bar is conveniently located near the driving range, offering beverages and light bites. The Lobby Bar, meanwhile, offers stunning views from indoor and outdoor seating areas, a fireplace, regional micro-brews, Cali wines by the glass and classic cocktails. 


Previously called the third-best city for romance in the world by Travel + Leisure, one of the top 10 travel destinations in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler and one of America’s best beach towns by National Geographic Traveler, Carmel-by-the-Sea is a European-style, Monterey Peninsula destination with a picturesque white-sand beach that’s a favorite getaway for travelers across the state. Its vibrant art scene and local cultural offerings, with shops, restaurants, wine tastings and more, are all within reach from your Quail Lodge abode.

Pet friendly upscale property

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Quail Lodge. The room was large and very clean, the beds comfortable, and we had a nice view of the pond. The pet friendly accommodation had laminate or hard wood floors and they provided nice little extras for our pet. We ate in both the main restaurant and the breakfast cafe. The food and service in both were excellent. We found all of the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The Quail Lodge is located a few miles from downtown Carmel in Carmel Valley - but it is worth the drive.

Nice room and good service

We stayed here for 1 night on 2nd Jan. The room was very good. It was spacious with a separate seating area and dining area. The toiletries were good quality as well. The club was really huge, had really pretty walk areas by the lake. We went for dinner at their restaurant and service was very good. We also called up housekeeping to check why the temperature in the bathroom was stuck at 67° and they immediately arranged for an engineer to visit the room but he couldnt help much. The only reason I rated it 1 star less is because:
1) Location: this property is a bit far out and if you are looking to visit the Monterey Bay area then I suggest you book a place that is closer. The club in itself is self-sufficient, has golf and lots of other activities but we were not looking for those activities. So all we could do after checking in that evening was dinner at their Edgars restaurant and walked around the club a little before we went to bed.
2) The water in the commode was stuck at a high lvl and flushing out very very slowly. Fortunately it happened only the morning of our check out!
All in all no complaints if we just want a quite holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life :)

Great stay with access to golf, wine, beach, and state parks for hiking and exploring.

Cottages give a sense of space and privacy. Front desk staff and Damian at coffee bar excellent.we rented bicycles in town and rode 17 mile route. Fun! Bocce fun and putting greens right there. Hotel could use a hot tub and spa robes. It’s a nice hotel for its hotel class. Good but not luxury. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay.

We booked a room at Quail Lodge for 3 nights and they gave us a room in one of the cottages. It had a very nice little sitting out front, separated by a low fence and gate. The room was pretty large and we liked the layout. The shower was really nice. The bed was so-so and it would have been nice to have a 2nd chair for sitting. The best part was how quiet it was. We didn't hear a sound from another guest, or traffic on the road or anything. Staff was polite and helpful. The ice machine was quite a ways away from our room, which was odd, but we dealt with it. We were there at the end of November/early December so we didn't use much of the outdoor amenities, but liked the bocce ball court. The golf course also looked very nice. Right down the road is a lovely winery and it's only about 5 miles from downtown Carmel. We would stay there again.
