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

After reading many reviews on this place, we decided to splurge and get one of the rooms that is older and has the direct view to the ocean rather than over the parking lot. It was worth it! 2 adorable adorondack chairs in front of our room were perfect for relaxing with a book and a beer. Inside was really... More

Yes, location, location but for the price this is really poor value. There were holes in the screens, the blinds were broken as well as dirty, there's no fridge, bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, the windows were dirty marring the view, there was inadequate security on the door, the door was chipped and missing paint. The bathroom was so uncomfortable... More

Four of us stayed for two nights in cabins 7 and 8 and had a wonderful time. I've stayed in places with fabulous views before, but nothing better than this. The cabins are a little primitive, but they don't claim to be anything else and the beds were very comfortable. Each has a small Franklin gas stove that comes in... More

A great location only goes so far. You need to also be decent to customers and offer some value that feels fair and reasonable. This is a fun little place in a beautiful location. The food in the restaurant was good but not excellent. However, the folks working there had a terrible attitude, and the lodging accommodations were laughably overpriced... More

Lucia Lodge is like stepping back in time to an era of rustic charm and the perfect stay in Big Sur. The little cabins are nestled on the side of a cliff which has a breathtaking view of the ocean and mountains around it. Each cabin has a comfy bed and cute living area with a little fireplace as well... More

We stayed one night, and truly enjoyed ourselves. The view, as you'd expect, is spectacular (hike 3 minutes up behind the cabins for an even better view). The dinner and breakfast were both very good. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful, and others seemed to not care very much. Sure, the rooms... More

There is no question that the view from cabins 7 through 10 have a spectacular southern view of the Big Sur Coastline. Cabin 10 also has a westerly view and is the most expensive. (About $255.00)The other cabins, 1 - 6, do not afford the same view, but the price is of course much cheaper. The room itself was nice... More
