When we're not splurging on Post Ranch Inn or Ventana, we love the Big Sur Lodge. It's not luxurious, but it is quite comfortable, and the setting is gorgeous. On my last visit there, I walked around what seemed to me to be the best part of the property and made note of the best locations in terms of privacy...

The thing that this hotel has going for it is the location - set in the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. On check-in the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was spacious and clean and would have suited a family stay with a separate room with twin beds. There was no air conditioning except for an industrial sized fan...

Very nice accommodations in a bucolic setting. The lodge and the cabins are in a beautiful setting in the woods. Our cabin had a nice, large bedroom with a skylight in the ceiling. It was nice to look up at the ceiling and see trees towering above through the skylight. Very helpful staff. We definitely would stay here again.

A rustic spot in the woods. Actually, not my cup of tea, but clean and comfortable. The Lodge is quite nice and the breakfast was pleasant. The staff helpful and the trails interesting. We stayed in a queen fireplace room---which I would recommend. Unfortunately, our fireplace was attractive but did not draft well.

A tree-huggers bliss. It was a motel type experience -- older units, dated furnishings, nothing fancy, but all very clean, and when you step outside, you are surrounded by beauty, massive, ancient trees, rushing water, and nearby adventures. The units have little patios with chairs; it's nice to sit outside with a bottle of wine and enjoy the smell of...

The room was spacious, clean and reasonably priced.The lodge itself is surrounded by mature trees in a very quiet and peaceful location. Our stay was during the week so changing our arrival date was not a problem. Very friendly and accommodating staff! We will definitely stay here again.

Sure, Big Sur is one of the best places to visit in California, but that's the only reason why Big Sur lodge can charge you over $350 a night in a pretty run-down lodge accommodation. The service at the hotel is hit and miss - one night we had a really nice (not overly organized, but nice) waitress, but the...

Nice little spot that's a hybrid between motor lodge and cabin. The room was not fancy, but beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit antiquated, and we had a little water damage to the floor. Room had a fireplace, and wood/starter was included.
