We booked the honeymoon cabin (room 10) for one night, the one nearest the cliff. What a treat! Of the 12 hotels in our itinerary, this was by far the best. It is very rustic (no wifi, temperamental shower, basic & draughty) but the position and the views were so spectacular that the minor faults were immaterial. We sat with... More

Stayed one night. Had a cabin. Rustic but with a fantastic view. Cabin was clean, and comfortable. Stove was a quaint touch. Sat on chairs outside the room and shared a bottle of wine, so peaceful. Little wifi and no phone sporadic phone service makes the place feel truly remote, a plus. Front desk was helpful. Dinner in their restaurant... More

From the moment we walked up, I knew booking this place was a mistake. While the location is absolutely amazing (you can see whales from the parking lot), the place is run down, and it shows. If you do stay here, stay in one of the cabins. We had a room that smelled musty and had dead flies all over... More

My husband & I have been here 3 times in the past 9 months. This is our favorite place to stop while driving down the Pacific Coast Hwy through the Big Sur. Our two prior visits here were just he & I, but this visit included our two kiddos. They don't offer an official kids menu but they can make... More

We were intrigued by the cliff side cabins every time we drove past on our way though Big Sur. We finally made the reservation and we're so glad we did! We had cabin #10, the "Honeymoon" cabin which is, I believe, the original one built in the 1930's and farthest out on the point. This cabin comes with upgraded bedding... More

To celebrate our second honeymoon, we decided to explore California's coastline. There is so much to see and enjoy in the region! Big Sur is majestic and incredible. Tall cliffs overlooking the ocean, sea lions splashing in the water, wildflowers everywhere...it is a remarkable place. The Lucia Lodge is an ideal location to stay when in Big Sur. It is... More

We were looking for somewhere to stop on our Big Sur drive in June this year. I found this place on the internet, and although a little pricey, the location stood out. Perched on top of the cliffs overlooking the sea, There are 4 lodges built in the 1930's overlooking the cliff, and some other more modern ones. The drive... More

Our stay was great, a bit overpriced but you can't beat the views and quaint rooms. Showers will be tiny in all cabins but 5 where we stayed, we had a shower and tub. Our view would have been outstanding with adirondack chairs in front if we stayed in7-10.. I'm pretty sure those rates are higher. Restaurant had AMAZING view... More

We stayed in room 4 and whilst the view is amazing the rooms are very average. Staff were lovely and it was very clean and one of the cheaper options in the very expensive big sur but there wasn't much to rave about.

My daughter and I were driving Route 1 during a trip to San Francisco - something we both wanted to do. We left booking accommodation later than was sensible and Lucia Lodge was the only place we could find. There is no doubt the views are stunning, the room we had I would describe as eccentric and a bit basic.... More
