The motel is great. Reasonably priced for Big Sur area. The rooms are "green" . Heated floors in the bathrooms, ,most of the furniture is green. Each cabin has an outside patio with lush plantings for privacy. Their so a fire pit for evening use.

We stayed in the little sur cabins for 4 nights. It was the perfect place to come home to after a day of hiking or laying on the beach. The cabins are spacious and the showers are delightful. The small fridge and sink set up allows you to purchase a few groceries and beers to have on hand for the... More

Stayed in a king size adobe motor lodge room w/fireplace. So great...private patio, zen and modern feel in a forest setting. Booking a cabin soon and returning for at least a week stay! Local dining is delicious and hiking trails for all levels. Beaches, redwoods, rivers, waterfalls and mountains...Big Sur has much to offer those escaping the city. Eclectic shops... More

Glen Oaks does a fantastic job of making their guests immediately feel the laid back Big Sur vibe. The rooms are immaculate and the front desk staff could not be more helpful or friendly. The ourdoor firepits at the cottages are perfectly set up and a single match starts a beautiful fire.

We stayed in a Little Sur cabin for 2 nights. We had cabin number 8, which felt nice and private, and very cute! We had a fire pit outside which was really nice to sit at in the evening with a glass of wine, after hiking around Big Sur. We also made s'mores, but bought our own kit with us... More

We stayed in the Sycamore Cabin at Glen Oaks on our brief trip through Big Sur, and it was perfect. The staff was super helpful, and the cabin was clean, modern, and serene. Each one has its own fire pit to enjoy with a glass of wine and a book, or smores. There aren't any tvs in the cabins so... More

My husband and I stayed in a little big sur cabin and loved it! The room is small, but very nice and comfortable. We chose it for the chairs and fire pit out back - perfect for making s'mores and drinking some wine. Wish we could have stayed longer!

I thought that the rooms were perfect, the staff was wonderful, and loved having all of the conveniences of the store, restaurant, and gas station on the premises. Would definitely stay there again. Thomas at the Roadhouse was an especially helpful waiter ; )

Stayed in a Fireside Queen room, paid USD 250/night. Wi-Fi is free. The room was immaculately clean and modern with a big shower and heated stone floor. I had a very happy stay and would recommend it to anyone who loves to be close to nature without TV.
