This is a pricey place to stay but, it was a treat to ourselves. The cabins are clean, comfortable and well equipped with high end furnishings and the views are breathtaking. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast was good too. Staff welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The little store near the cabins had most of the necessities... More

I am usually the vacation planner but I let go so hubby could plan his road trip. It allowed me to be surprised at every stop. This was the fourth hotel on our road trip and the 2nd best.The first one did not have window curtains and the second hotel was spartan, small and only had one accessible electrical plug.... More

Well this place is absolutely gorgeous! Its set right on the cliffs of Big sur and has a majestic view. To be honest its very pricy but I imagine the upkeep is unreal. There is no water access just a terrific view. It was empty in Jan so i went for the honeymoon suite. Again pricy but if you are... More

We decided to stay at Lucia Lodge after reading reviews about this place right on the edge of the cliff with glorious views. Because room #10 was available, we snagged it. In all honesty, I'm not sure I'd recommend staying here if room #10 isn't available because the views are so so worth it and that extra privacy is great.... More

Breath-taking location - you can't help but relax and stare out to sea! We stayed two nights - first in one of the older cabins and second in the more luxurious cabins facing out to sea. They are definitely worth the extra money. View, size, facilities all better (room photo is of second cabin - person not going to toilet... More

My boyfriend and I visited California last year. Aside from Big Sur we visited Yosemite, SF, and LA, but this was by far my favorite stay. The views were amazing and the cabins were so charming. The staff was friendly and the hotel's restaurant food was delicious, I recommend the salmon. I have never seen such a picturesque little hotel... More

It would be a shame to rush along the Big Sur without stopping to admire the views. We had 3 nights to get from Santa Monica to Monterey so researched things to see on the way and then found places to stay. There is no big resort between Moonstone Bay and Monterey. Many of the hotels are a little way... More

This is in the heart of Big Sur and a great location from which to hike. Probably typically a one night stand. Basic amenities. VIews are amazing. Heritage is its strong suit as the family is part of the settlers who came to Lucia more than a century ago.

Did not stay in the lodge but ate lunch in the restaurant. Stunning views literally hanging off the edge of the cliffs. Great food but way too expensive. Checked out the rooms and they too were e pensive but nice. You pay formthe view!

You cannot beat the view you get at this cute little hotel. We stayed in cabin 9 and were surprised how nice it was inside, but we spent most of our time outside enjoying the amazing view of the ocean. We also walked up the hill behind the cabins to get a better view and star gaze. The restaurant stopped... More
