We were on our way down Highway One when it got dark... we had no reservation and happened upon this place. Luckily they had a cancellation... we got a cabin in the Redwoods! I was astonished! It was by far my most favorite place that I have ever stayed! I do like nature... and the rooms were GREEN with recycled... More

I just spent two nights at the Glen Oaks while on a 2 weeks trip around California. This is by far the most interesting hotel I was in... The room was very nice, very comfortable, clean and the deco is beautiful and makes for a peaceful environment. The staff was very kind and helpful. I would go back there anytime.

We spent just one night at Glen Oaks Big Sur Motor Lodge en route to San Francisco from LA. Wow! The setting was amazing and the rooms were incredible. We each had a Fireside King Room and they were so unexpectedly chic and finished to an incredible standard. Nothing hokey about this place!! Wish we could have stayed longer...

This is my second time staying at Glen Oaks Big Sur and it was just as great as the first time. Nestled in the woods right off Hwy 1, I have to say this hotel encapsulates wonderfully the pleasant and restful parts of Big Sur. Our stay was clean and there was nothing more we could ask for.

We recently stayed in Glen Oaks' Big Sur Cabin for one night for our 10th anniversary. It was sublime. My wife wanted to move in permanently. Between the chairs by the river, the his and hers outdoor bathtubs and the heated bathroom floors, there were more amenities than we anticipated. And the food at the property's Roadhouse restaurant was delicious.... More

Visited in October 2014 for a night - our third stay. Always welcoming, but the new rooms are a bit small. You have to pay to stay in Big Sur so just a question of location and amount. We will probably stay here again, but I liked the old rooms better. The centrality of Glen Oaks is a plus, and... More

I was cautious about booking a " motor lodge" room....... However that misgiving was quickly erased....Really nice setting for the motor lodge and cabins and the designer did an absolutely fantastic job!.... We had a queen w/ fireplace and the room was just great....really outstanding... Nice little front porch with greenery was a good spot for an afternoon glass of... More

My husband and I visited 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. We absolutely loved Glen Oaks. The rooms were cute and quaint and had a lot of small touches we really appreciated. We loved the games included in the rooms, filtered water and most of all the heated floors! The fire pit outside the rooms was a great touch... More

We were looking for a place to stay just for the evening as part of our road trip to and through Big Sur. Having arrived just past sunset, the location of Glen Oaks was super convenient to find. It's right off the road, and with the Roadhouse across the street for meals, it was the perfect place to take a... More

The only negative thing I have to say is they are doing construction in the forest Only for a few hours during the day. With that said,The cabin was perfect, we stayed in the forest view and you are literally right in the redwoods. My husband and I walked out of the room one morning to find about 8 deer... More
