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.

View is excellent!!! My kid also loved the mini golf so much. Room is spacious and cozy, although cleanliness of the floor could be improved. Although no complimentary bottled water was provided, but the guy from housekeeping went above and beyond by giving us free bottles.
We could also buy ticket to monterey aquarium for a good deal (2 days entry at the price of 1, although you most likely won't need it) from the computer provided in the business center and print the ticket. We will surely visit Quail Lodge again in the future.

A great escape on the Monterey Peninsula

The Premier Room was very nice but on the smaller side, which made it cramped when we added a folding bed for our daughter.
Great bathroom set-up. There's Wi-Fi service throughout property. The TV was large and had great clarity and channel options..

We love the overall property, the large deck for outdoor eating, and the friendly and attentive staff. The café in the morning has terrific coffee/espresso drink service along with very respectable pastry. The restaurant and bar are solid and have pretty much all you need for hotel services.
The golf course is a nice tract, well maintained, and runs directly by the Lodge for a nice backdrop. The putting green course that snakes between the Lodge buildings is fun for all and well kept.
Located 10 minutes away from Carmel-by-the-Sea, it's very convenient. It's also about 10 degrees warmer than Carmel-by-the-Sea in the sunny months.

A Fabulous Hotel in Carmel Valley
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel located in Carmel Valley has beautiful, quiet rooms surrounding a lagoon. The rooms are spacious and beds are excellent. This is a great alternative to staying directly in Carmel where rooms tend to be noisy. Weekday rates are very reasonable.

Perfect setting

Very comfortable rooms, super friendly staff and the Wednesday glow in the dark mini golf was fun for the kids. We came for two nights and were so glad we were able to extend it another day-very reasonable prices for the luxury and relaxation we experienced
