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.

Serenity, lux and comfort

This phenomenal property always delivers what are we looking for within just a few minutes after arrival. Its beautiful surroundings, seclusion feel, yet easy access to Carmel Valley Villa and Carmel By-The-Sea really prompts it to be called the ideal destination when visiting Carmel.

Restaurant and cocktails within easy walking distance -inside the property btw-, calm and beautiful golfing, and exceptionality always radiating from the whole crew who works here.

Even after having a small hiccup (which happens) with our room's bathroom, such was addressed promptly and professionally- even after my partner was not happy at the moment with the situation, the way the crew went beyond with good customer service and honest careness really left a lot to say-- kudos!! :)

We brought friends with us this time around, and they were just as enchanted as we were the first time we came here. Bravo!

Golf and Location!!!!

Quail Lodge has a golf course not only beautiful to the eye on the course, but in the rooms end of day as well.
Located just outside Carmel, lots of boutique shopping nearby and easy access to Monterey airport for business travel.
Excellent location for business retreats or reward trips!

Very peaceful and tranquil property only minutes to town. I hesitate to rate this property highly as it will then be more difficult to book rooms here in the future. Dog friendly and nice place to walk.

Turned out to be a very nice family visit

Upon arriving we were a little suspicious because if you are not careful you pull into the back of the golf course and not the hotel, but once we drove around to the main desk things got better, and then once we checked in and spent a few hours we felt very comfortable. Quail Lodge and Golf Club is a series of aisle side first level rooms and second level rooms; it is not a motel, it is a nice resort, but in Carmel this is what lodging is. Some first floor rooms have a back or front patio, but all second level rooms have a balcony so choose a second level room. Some of the rooms look over the pool or golf course, but ours overlooked the pond/lake and was very pretty. The room is rustic classy and has a nice little sitting area too; our son loved it so much and it was just his size so he cuddled up and slept in the sitting area both nights! There is a small workout area, a full service restaurant that in the morning also doubles as a small cafe (we loved the barista and the coffee to go), and one of our favorite amenities the nine hole real putting surface not-so-mini golf course. Yes these are nine mini-greens, well maintained, and you can get putters and balls inside the office and play 'til your hearts content. I think over the two days my son and I played five rounds of nine! Of course there is a golf course too (fee) and a few tennis courts. Carmel lodging can be tough, but I think we have found our spot!
