I must say this place took me by surprise. 3 of us were driving the California coast line and decided to stop when it got dark. We found ourselves in front of Lucia Lodge. When we walked in we noticed they had a little convince store. Most stuff was covered in dust. We asked about rooms and were lucky to... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our way to San Francisco from San Diego. The check in process was fine, the young lady at the desk was helpful. We bought some food there and some wine. No big surprise, being on the Big Sur, everything is very expensive. Buy your wine and food before you get... More

We booked well in advance to secure this on one night of our road trip as it looked lovely and I wanted to get Cabin 10 at the end of the row. It’s a great setting and location for something like this and was great to fall asleep to the sound of the Pacific. There is a nice little shop/reception... More

We stayed at Lucia Lodge the night of December 30th 2014 on our way through Big Sur to San Francisco. The location is at the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean; it is magnificent to look out at the view. There is nothing close by for miles, no lights you can see from there. We were really looking forward... More

Perched on a clifftop high above the Pacific is the Lucia Lodge ... historic, rustic, fairly remote, and quiet. I had a peaceful 5 nights in December 2014, so by 6pm it is nearly entirely black outside except for the single sign/light on Hwy 1 for the Lodge ... all of which help one see the Milky Way and a...

This place is a motel -- drive up to the door, thin walls, adequate beds. The reason you want to stay here is because it's perched on a cliff along the Pacific -- gorgeous. Other places in Big Sur are inland and not near the water. This place is right on the water. Plan on having dinner at the lodge... More

We booked Lucia from the web the day before we arrived, heading north. There aren't many accommodation options in Big Sur, and it was hard to decide without seeing - but it's a big risk to just turn up and hope there's a vacancy. A good call - because even though this was Autumn, and a weekday, they did fill... More

On our first trip to California back in 2011, my then partner and I stopped at Lucia Lodge for lunch on our way to San Francisco. Struck by the stunning views of the Pacific, we wished we had booked into one of the cliff edge lodges for the night. Three years later, on our honeymoon, we did just that and... More

We wanted to stay in Big Sur but all the high end resorts were commanding prices of 4-5 times that of Lucia Lodge. We felt resigned to the fact that there was no option but to continue driving to Carmel .. Luckily we found Lucia Lodge. It's not a bargain but for the price, we had a great view of... More

The view from this place is absolutely breathtaking! You'll never be able to sleep in only because you won't be able to wait to get up to look at the scenery. Now, you don't get a very reliable internet service, nor do you get a fridge and at times any electricity at all. But, you are in the wilderness so... More
