We stayed in the Archies cabin in January 2016. Perfect spot for 3 nights. We spent time in Carmel and did a hike a Julia Pfeiffer Burns SP. Great views and great big trees! The cabin was cozy and clean and romantic. Heated floor in bath was welcome. Kitchen had coffee, hot chocolate, and oatmeal for breakfast. The free donuts... More

Recently renewed, it's probably the best deal in the area, where all the prices are high and often without offering you what you are paying for, inside the property there is a nice short walk to take to start your morning! The rooms are spacious and warm, clean and all renovated, the breakfast it's limited, only a couple of options,... More

This is great little place to escape to. Forget your worries and soak in the scenery of large redwood trees towering above and babbling brooks rushing by with a white noise that will make you forget your troubles. No TVs are needed if you are in for a relaxing getaway.

This hotel was nice enough, provided a nice Big Sur eco-lodge experience. However we were slightly disappointed as from the price we paid we expected a less ?rustic? experience and more present service. That being said, Big Sur is a beautiful area with lots of natural wonders and outdoor activities.

My husband wanted to go to Big Sur for his 35th birthday. After some internet searching, I stumbled on the Glen Oaks. I quickly booked as the rate was far more affordable than other options in the area (Big Sur is spendy y'all). Glad I did - we LOVED it. We travel fairly often and have seen a range of... More

The room was adorable and had everything we needed! The heated floors and fireplace were perfect after a long day of hiking, and the room had great style. The staff was very friendly and it was nice to be right nearby the hikes we were there to do!

The heated floor in the bathroom was incredible. Great location to sights and views. the bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were great! Two nice robes were in... More

Had a two night stay in an Adobe Motor Lodge -- was upgraded from a queen to a king. Although the weather was cold and rainy, the fireplace and heated bathroom floors kept us toasty and warm. The vibe was great, the room was spacious, and it was great value. Small touches like Scrabble, wine, yoga mats and a fridge... More

It is exactly as advertised. Cozy mid century modern style cool furniture, electric/stone fireplace in the room, awesome stone bathroom. The place is super. Loved our stay here. Next time we will stay longer. The ambiance of the location, the cleanliness, the great taste in the finishes, the fact that they have a great restaurant right across the street(so convenient),...

The cabins that are part of Glen Oaks and are located along the Big Sur River are exceptional in every respect. The QUIET is so wonderful and the setting -- along the River and deep in the redwoods -- is breath taking, unique and so relaxing. Our room (Forest View) was well appointed, the fire-pit great fun with the "smores"... More
