We visited the Big Sur Lodge as part of our honeymoon trip travelling up the California Coast. My husband and I are both keen hikers and lovers of the great outdoors, and so the inclusion of entry to several national parks in the room rate, as well as the stunning location, were key factors in our deciding to stay here....

We were traveling down the Pacific Coast with our family (kids 6 and 8) and the Big Sur Lodge was very memorable. We arrived in the evening tired and hungry and were pleased to find a quaint restaurant with tasty, healthy and affordable food. Our cabin, although simple, was CLEAN and plenty spacious. It was nestled among large redwoods. We... More

Big Sur Lodge is pretty much what it claims to be. It's not selling itself as a particularly lavish accommodation, rather a safe and habitable lodging in amidst the trees and wildlife with close access to world beating coastal views. The 'chalets' are very basic but spacious and comfortable. As an Englishman they remind of a gigantic high end garden... More

My partner and I just enjoyed a peaceful stay at the Big Sur Lodge. We stayed in a fireplace queen room. The room was simple, but spacious, clean and very comfortable. Although it was a motel style room, the space had the feeling of a cabin. The grounds were beautiful and teeming with wildlife. We spotted chipmunks, squirrels, deer, wild... More

Big Sur Lodge The Big Sur Lodge is a no frills, basic lodge with clean adjoining 1-story cottage-like spacious bedrooms, well-appointed bathrooms, patios that look into the trees, good king and queen beds with fireplaces and kitchens in some rooms – which is to say accommodations are highly functional given your needs. Unless you want luxury in a state park... More

Just paid the bill for our three-night stay at the Big Sur Lodge. Totally overpriced for what we got! An average room (no kitchen facilities), in an average setting (dumpster opposite our patio), with a nice pool, for an exorbitant price. That was it. Didn't even include day use at any of the areas in the State park. We stayed... More

Let me start by saying we were looking forward to staying at the Lodge in Pheiffer State Park, and the state park lived up to it's reputation. It was beautiful and had many trails and a pool for hot afternoons. The cabin certainly rented for a premium price (no not Post Ranch price) for what was essentially a standard motel... More

I loved the idea of a fireplace cabin in the redwoods .... Our 3 night stay would have been perfect if only the staff would have had any kind of customer service skills. From check in we were greeted with a stony face, no welcoming smile from the ladies at the front desk. They work in a beautiful area that... More

This was not the lodge as I remembered from years past. Although the lodge is still present, the actual rooms are cabins located further into the redwoods and park. They are modern, clean, and beautifully furnished with full kitchens and fireplace/gas heater. They are also large enough for families and that is why they are expensive for a single person... More

From reading the reviews, I was expecting very rustic individual cabins in the woods. The lodge is in a beautiful redwood forest but it really is more like a motel circa 1960's. Not luxurious, but our room was very clean and spacious, with a comfortable bed, furniture in good condition, good shower and a nice deck. It cooled off at... More
