We stayed three nights. Had a lovely dinner one night and watched whales out the window by our table. Waitress was really nice. We were glad for the simple breakfast to start the days. The only down side: after a day away we returned to our room and found it had not been made up. We asked the hostess if... More

The view is outstanding so if you sit outside the room, all is well. Ate at the restaurant and was very disappointed. Didn't even finish it. Rooms are old and no coffee machine. For the price, I'd go somewhere else.

I called them about 10 times on the various numbers they list and was never able to get through. The line was either busy or no answer. We booked the Ragged Point Inn the morning we were to arrive and we extremely happy with the property. On the way back up the coast, we stopped at the Lucia. The girl... More

Lovely spot on Route 1, miles fom anywhere and overlooking the rugged coastline. Apparently one of top ten places for fish and chips in California. This was borne out by my two pieces of cod, fresh and superb. Oh . . . and my three healthy dining companions had salads; quite good they said.

Great little place. No frills but clean, comfortable & welcoming. We stayed here on our way back from Herst Castle to SanFrancisco. We were very hungry & arrived at closing of the restaurant. The manager allowed us to eat there anyway. Food was delish, wine was awesome. Waitress even sat with us for awhile and told us stories about the... More

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...
