We stayed in the cabin nestled in the woods. It have a lovely living room with books and board games, a little kitchen that was well appointed, good size bedroom & a terrific porch for enjoying coffee etc. It was a great place for local friends to visit with us. The king size bed was really comfy and despite my... More

Glen Oaks Big Sur is a peaceful place to clear your mind and have a very wonderful time with your loved one. No TV was a blessing. My wife and I had room 9 and the double sided fireplace with secluded patio was the bomb! When we checked in the front desk personal was wonderful and very informative about what... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon in a Fireside Lodge Queen. Pro's: - Nice room decoration, rustic but very modern and the bathroom had lovely underfloor heating and a large shower. - Across the road from a nice restaurant, Big Sur Roadhouse, where we ate both nights. Rather pricey but as it was our... More

I stayed in a Deluxe King which has it's own private patio area with gate. This is part of the main building along CA-1. My room was beautifully furnished with a mid-century meets the woods kind of vibe. This is a big plus in my book. The lack of TV is welcome when in a beautiful setting. The dual sided... More

A well furnished, decorated and comfortable room. The bathroom was incredible - under floor heating and amazing shower. The table and chairs outside were a great touch after a day in the car on the coast road, and although it was close to the highway, we weren't disturbed by the road.

My wife and I drove down from San Francisco for a weekend getaway. Glen Oaks offered up a relaxed atmosphere, plenty of privacy (we stayed in the Sycamore cabin), a solid restaurant onsite (one breakfast, one dinner, funky Creole cuisine), and decor and design that reflected an honest sustainability. Perfectly located for hiking, too. We'll go back for sure.

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was decorated beautifully. Loved the bathroom and porch area. I did wish there was a TV in the room. Restaurant was amazing! We were very happy with our stay and would stay here again.

For my 31st birthday, my boyfriend and I decided to head to Big Sur for a few days to relax. After researching nearly every property within our budget, we decided on Glen Oaks Big Sur and, I'm convinced, we couldn't have made a better decision! The location is prime and the grounds are well-maintained. The staff was friendly and informative... More

My husband and I stayed at Glen Oaks in 2013 and loved it. This year we decided to upgrade into a larger room, with a patio and king sized bed, and it was well worth it. The opening of the Big Sur Roadside Restaurant across the street is a definite plus -- great food and fabulous ambience. Altogether, a great... More

My partner and I stayed here, we wanted a cabin but only the adobe motor lodge was available. We still had a good time, it is very convenient with a restaurant RoadHouse across street and close to other areas to explore. Everyone is very nice who works here. Will try to be back soon!
