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.

I had researched the Lodge prior to booking our reservation. We were not disappointed! Room was perfect, spacious, complete with private outdoor patio.

Staff were extremely helpful.

Location was perfect for exploring Carmel and Big Sur. Would love to stay here again.

Terrible food
Reviewed 2 months ago

I hardly ever write reviews , but so shocked by food served at this resort. It may be a golf resort, but golfers deserve to eat decent food 😳
From the breakfast sour melon pieces to fries that tasted like strange oil with an unusual odor, to fat loaded burgers. And terrible service of dropping a big plate of appetizers without any serveware or even napkins. Very disappointing. Would not return here . Do not plan on eating here even if you end up staying here.

Came here for a Jazz Weekend, and enjoyed the facilities as well.

I stayed here for four nights this month. Due to a snafu in my reservation, I was in one room for 3 nights, and changed to another for the last one. The first room was of a higher category and it showed. It was very nice and comfortable. The next, lower category room was tired, and the bedding was past its prime and likely polyester. The finishes in the room made me think of a 60's era, old fashioned golf resort feel.

The common areas were clean and nicely appointed with good views of the outdoors. The staff was friendly.

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.
