Living in Carmel, we sometimes forget to make the quick easy trip down the coast to Big Sur. We decided to try out the Glen Oaks in Big Sur for the night, and came back home relaxed and renewed by the wonders of all that...More
I recently stayed two nights at the Glen Oaks Adobe Motor Lodge- King room. The hotel was absolutely ideal for my trip goals- it was peaceful, located in a great spot, secluded but not entirely remote. The room itself was stunning with a perfect rustic...More
I realise that most people have had a fantastic experience at Glen Oaks, but sadly that was not what happened to me. Although the cabin was very cute it was left in a very dirty manner, and house keeping did not clean it in anyway...More
We had a lovely two nights at Glen Oaks Big Sur. While at first we had taken the Gate House, we found it nice but wanted to be closer down by the river so we opted to move to the Little Sur cabin. It was...More

Been visiting BigSur for 35 years, often staying at Glen Oaks. Room choice should depend on what you like best. Motel rooms have been modernised , have heated shower room floor etc., nicely appointed and are close to front desk,; but they are quite small, in two blocks, each of rooms connected by rather thin walls, and are very near to the highway so can be a bit noisy. Cabins are very different, nicely furnished, mostly more secluded and offering at least some self-catering kit though mostly only microwave......some near the river, which is good to lull you to sleep! I think two are "semi-detached" so check if you would really prefer not to have a connected neighbour....Of course it's further to the office and the roadhouse for breakfast or free morning coffee/doughnut too! We think best is the one called "The Cottage" which is on the same side of the highway as the office, very secluded, and the only one which has full kitchen including oven, giant Smeg fridge-freezer and it has a very very comfortable bed.
Your choice! Good luck.....

There is a massive landslide that closed CA 1 between LA and Glen Oaks Big Sur. It is supposed to reopen late summer. That is not a firm date. We went to Glen Oaks from Los Angeles in September 2017 and did have to take... More
There is a massive landslide that closed CA 1 between LA and Glen Oaks Big Sur. It is supposed to reopen late summer. That is not a firm date. We went to Glen Oaks from Los Angeles in September 2017 and did have to take 101 to Monterrey then go south on CA 1. Still completely worth it. Check online before your trip to see the status.
