I need to first point out that expectations for this property must be very different from that of a Hyatt, Four Seasons, Fairmont etc... This is completely unique experience and therefore very difficult to draw comparisons in terms of 'bang for buck'. Yes, you do pay a lot for what you get, yes the rooms need some work, but they...

I camped 9 of 12 of my nights on this trip; maybe this influences my review, and maybe not. All I know is that every aspect of my stay was top notch. Too many people may worry about stuff like wobbly doors and keys; no big-screen; no Wi-Fi (this place, btw, has it); no valet service; "not in Big Sur"... More

We were here at the end Feb. for two nights in room #1. It was my mother's birthday and we decided to meet in Big Sur. I should have been more thorough with my research before booking the room. The lodge is not located in Big Sur proper. It's about 30 min. south on Highway 1, just past the town... More

I realize when you book a room on the coast of Big Sur that you are paying for the view. The view was spectacular, but the rooms are tiny and dated (the wooden door is old and wobbly and it took some jiggling of the keys to get into the room). We arrived early and decided to have lunch in... More

I've been wanting to stay at the Lucia Lodge for many years. Driving by along Highway 1 it always looked so attractive, and the location is absolutely outstanding! When I finally got around to making reservations I checked reviews with Tripadvisor. I was dismayed, but not dissuaded by the very mixed reviews. I decided to go for it anyway. When... More

The only good thing is the view. Checking in customer service was not warm and felt like I was checking into a tent camping site. The hotel needs repair. I could see light at the bottom and top of the door.....didn't feel very safe. We happened to be there during a storm and I could see the rain coming in... More

We stayed two nights in the "honeymoon cabin" - the weather wasn't great, obviously the lodge can't arrange that!! The cabin was sweet, very basic in amenities - wifi so poor it wasn't worth trying really. Bed was very comfortable and the teeny tiny shower room was clean [ not sure a tall person would manage in there!] . We... More

Loved it. Hearing the ocean when you sleep. Beautiful rustic cottages. The food the restaurent was amazing and so low key. Very special place. Walks along the ocean, right outside my door. I think we had room #8. I will never forget this trip

If you enjoy history the rooms in these lodges team with it and give you a sense of having stayed someplace interesting. No distractions, no amenities, just you and the ocean cliffs outside. Very charming, very memorable.

Definitely a "get away from it all" type of place. No phones, No TV, etc...CANNOT BEAT THE LOCATION. we were blessed with wonderful weather on our trip down Highway 1. Excellent views from the lodge. Rooms were better than expected. Very clean and a friendly staff. The fish n chips from the Lodge restaurant was extremely tasty, lightly battered and... More
