Chose this because of the location and a room that was more than a rustic cabin. The good: location, bathroom / shower, spacious, cozy bedding. Not so good: our room #6 faced the parking lot and street (others face the ocean), finishes not up to the price. The surprise: restaurant was very good. Glad, because it's a drive to other... More

We stayed in room #10, closest to the ocean. As we understood this room was renovated within the last 6 months, it definitely looked like it. The reno was done well. The room includes a nice gas fireplace, and a very comfy loveseat from where you can look out three large windows, to the ocean. The lodge and restaurant staff... More

Redone rooms are nice, great with a fireplace to have a cozy evening after sitting out enjoying the views. Large shower, great bed. Garden and walk to a height with view is great addition. Clean and wifi, though slow!!

Lucia Lodge is not cheap. You pay a hefty price for the view, not for the cottage room, which is fine but basic. The reason we are there is for the view and the whole Big Sur experience where I think we succeed. Perched overlooking Big Sur it is a unique grouping of cottages with incomparable views of the coastline... More

First of all be warned that this beautiful place is absent telephone,internet,cell,radio,television communication. Some of these things work sporadically but for all intents and purposes you are into natural person to person communication. This can be frightful at first but very soon the natural splendor of the setting takes over and nothing else matters. Great place if you want to... More

My daughter and her husband stayed at the lodge 2 nights ago and the heat in the room did not work. The front office closes early and so they had a cold long night. In the morning they left early to warm up in the car . They were told by the front desk that they could expect a partial... More

We stayed at Lucia Lodge on our way north to San Francisco one night in February this year. The Cabins are a little dated however in our view this adds to the location. The view is to die for and being right on the P.C.Hightway is great. You can walk up a hill behind the last cabin closest to the... More

At the risk of letting the proverbial cat out of the bag: Lucia Lodge is one of the best kept secrets of Big Sur. Yes, you pay a lot, but no where near as much as the luxury places to the north and south of Lucia. The views from the cottages and bluff are nothing short of spectacular. The cottage... More

This place has amazing views. It is DATED. The rooms/bathrooms are small. This is not about luxury. It's about enjoying the outdoors. I would stay here again rather than drop crazy money up the road at Post Ranch or Ventana. It's very remote. We didn't pick up a cell signal. The internet access is spotty and controlled. It really forces... More

Beautiful place. Absolutely. Clean rooms, Nice service. Take care you have a room with a view. Details missing. Benches, sitting places outside. Coffee possibility before 8 am. Working lightning inside the room. A bit shabby place. Breakfast at 8 was first of all too late - people want to hit the road as they wake up early. And it was... More
