I recommend Lucia Lodge. It's on a bluff overlooking the ocean. You should know that it's about 13 miles, 20 minutes from the "town" of Big Sur proper but the drive along the coast is what we go for. It's nice if you are traveling up from the south because you get there a little sooner and are closer on... More

Overlooking the cliffs and the Pacific Ocean, these cabins give a way more than only a paradisiac scenery: it gives you the chance of living in the middle of the Big Sur region. Imagine watching the sunset with a glass of wine with only the ocean noise surrounding. Beside, the cabin and restaurant kept an atmosphere of the 30’s.

We stayed in Cabin 7 for one night on a 10 night trip around California - this stay was a real highlight on our trip we loved the lodges. The cabins are full of character and have the most fantastic view. You find yourself not wanting to do anything else apart from sit outside and soak up the view. We... More

My wife and I recently stayed in Cabin #7 at the Lucia Lodge. The view was spectacular and the room was clean and comfortable. The property restaurant offered no carry out which we hoped to access in order to relax in our room and enjoy a romantic dinner with amazing views. However, this did not deter us and we bought...

I have to agree with jackie- we were not in one of the cabins but in a 200/night room. Everything was clean and tidy thankfully but beyond that, it was hopeless. We had one wine glass and NO hairdryer. I stayed in hotels for two weeks and never ran into this. The walls were so paper thin, that if I... More

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
