My wife and I stayed here two nights: once going north on the Pacific Coast Highway; once coming south. The area where the lodge and restaurant are located is spectacular--among soaring redwoods that humble you just to gaze up at them. The staff was very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed the meals we had at the restaurant. There's a nice...

Booked this for one night very last minute on our way down the west coast. After reading the reviews we were pleasantly surprised to find it comfortable, spacious and very well equipped, not that basic at all. We did miss wifi and tv, but it's so good to get away from all that too. Lovely to stay in the Forest...

The staff at Big Sur Lodge were very rude. No line and no welcome. They acted like it was a big inconvenience to do their job- check us in. At the food counter, we waited 5 minutes as the staff talked amongst themselves and decided to even acknowledged us. I am always very courteous, especially to those that work in...

I'll start by saying that I am not a fussy person. We stayed 4 nights at the lodge for my daughter's wedding. Our cabin had a bedroom with a queen bed and an open dining-living room-second bedroom with a sky light, a fireplace and a porch overlooking a central grassy area. I liked the open, big space feel. The drawback...

What a strange experience we had here. Got in relatively late at night with my family and went to our 2-room family cabin.. The cabin was bare bones and very basic. Walls were pretty thin but could have been worse. Cleanliness was questionable; the heater was super dusty and my dad found a tissue behind some furniture. We found a...

Relatively expensive for what is essentially a comfortable cabin in the woods, esp. as space is not particularly at a premium at the site – but they have a captive market so can price high. It seems a very popular day-trip/weekend destination. My room/cabin (#36) was entirely adequate – spacious and appointed with all the necessities; and good bathroom with...

We spent 3 nights at Big Sur Lodge for our son's wedding. The cabins are spacious and up-to-date. We had a king bed with a sky light above the bed. The bathrooms are big and had a nice size shower. Outside were wild turkeys running around. The main Lodge was a short walk down the hill and offered very good...

It's important to set the right expectations when you visit this place. $160 a night is certainly not cheap, and sure, that amount of money can get you a lot more in some cities, but this is Big Sur, and lodging is limited (and therefore) expensive here. Knowing that, you can come to appreciate what you do get- a very...

My husband and I were here for a few days of relaxation with friends. Our room was large and comfortable although somewhat minimalistic (no tv, which was fine but the room could have used a comfortable reading chair). The hotel has spacious grounds set among beautiful redwood trees with lots of hiking trails in the area. There were turkeys wandering...

We were very happy with our stay here. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful and the cabin was brilliant! The bed was very comfortable and the room was really spacious. There were a couple of things that could've been cleaner, but all in all it was a fabulous cabin in the most beautiful area. We had dinner in the...
