We stayed at the lodge on a whim when we were making a road trip down the coast. The room was very spacious with tons pa sleeping (3 beds in common area and one in bedroom). Great place for a large group looking for somewhere basic to crash. Obviously very simple and rustic. Heard a noise during the night that... More

We stay often in lodges in National Parks and thought this would be as nice. They are called cabins but they really aren't. They are more motel style. Each unit has a deck out back, right next to the room next door, not very private at all. The rooms are close to Hwy. 1 so you get some noise. The... More

The 4 of us (wife, twin daughters and I) enjoyed our stay in the cabin at the Big Sur lodge. Cabin had 2 rooms with comfortable queen beds and bathroom. When not hiking around the various parks nearby kids and us were in the lodge pool. Very nice setting, in the middle of the giant redwoods, deer and fawns and... More

We love Big Sur Lodge! This place is great if you want to enjoy rustic, even 'glamping' esque experience in the stunning redwoods. We are (frankly constant) domestic & world travellers who have stayed everywhere from tent camping to the finest, priciest resorts & we loved our time here. I first stayed here in my early 20s as an affordable... More

I loved this place - it is so peaceful and beautiful, right inside the state park and the giant redwoods are just outside your cabin. The cabins are tastefully done, and mine had a fireplace which was really nice. The other nice thing about this place is the restaurant, where the food was amazing with another beautiful view of the... More

If you want to camp, then go camping. If you want luxury or really clean rooms, this is not for you. However, the location is great. The 2 room cabins are nice for a family. The kitchenette is nice for a family. The pool is great. The restaurant is quite good. If we came again, I would bring those disinfectant... More

We had been in the lodge several years ago but had not stayed in the cottages. Yes, it's a bit out dated but our cottage was huge. We had a fireplace, queen and twin in one room and separate queen bedroom. The balcony in the front was a great place to watch the wild turkey's and enjoy the surrounding redwoods.... More

We recently visited the Big Sur Lodge. It was a bit out dated and over priced, but it served it's purpose. Our cabin was clean and had plenty of room. Our cabin had two queen and two twin. Not bad for a family of four. The staff was friendly. There is a nice restaurant in the main lodge and the... More

We did the drive from LA to San Francisco. Lapped up the the drive along the Big Sur. Took in the views along the way and the manu stops available. It was the perfect final stop before going back into a city. A rustic stay. Rooms were basic but clean and in the woods overlooking the coast. Very nice restaurant... More

I stayed here in March of this year (2014). The rooms are actually individual cabins with porches that are connected to each other. I reserved a cabin with a single queen bed, but there was also a door to a second "bedroom" with twin beds. In addition, that room contained a sink and closet, but the odd thing was that... More
