First class views off the bluff in Lucia just south of Eslaen. Cottage 10 is at the very end and has 4 separate large windows full of ocean and coastline views. This is a recently updated motel (and definitely feels like a motel) so while it has no special frills or appointments it is clean and the views are really... More

I recently make a reservation at the Lucia Lodge for myself and my 12 year old granddaughter. As I was clicking the "Submit" button, I glanced up and noted that there was a statement in the reservations policy that noted children were not welcome. I wrote an email immediately cancelling the reservation stating that I did not want to stay... More

The room was quite small with an attached bathroom and shower stall. It was clean though and and of course the main reason to stay is for the view and experience of overlooking the ocean! There is a steep path to an ocean overlook just beyond the room closest to the ocean. Be sure to check it out! There is... More

Everything can be said about this place is already being said by other reviewers. Make sure to plan your trip early because this place is very popular. Get the lodge with ocean view or you are wasting your money!!

The room was fine - it was clean and had plenty space. It bills itself as being Rustic; but we both thought it was a little rundown. There is an AWESOME ocean overlook that no one at the front desk mentioned. We found it ourselves. Go behind the motel and up the hill - there are multiple benches that look... More

This is a pricey place to stay but, it was a treat to ourselves. The cabins are clean, comfortable and well equipped with high end furnishings and the views are breathtaking. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast was good too. Staff welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The little store near the cabins had most of the necessities... More

I am usually the vacation planner but I let go so hubby could plan his road trip. It allowed me to be surprised at every stop. This was the fourth hotel on our road trip and the 2nd best.The first one did not have window curtains and the second hotel was spartan, small and only had one accessible electrical plug.... More

Well this place is absolutely gorgeous! Its set right on the cliffs of Big sur and has a majestic view. To be honest its very pricy but I imagine the upkeep is unreal. There is no water access just a terrific view. It was empty in Jan so i went for the honeymoon suite. Again pricy but if you are... More

We decided to stay at Lucia Lodge after reading reviews about this place right on the edge of the cliff with glorious views. Because room #10 was available, we snagged it. In all honesty, I'm not sure I'd recommend staying here if room #10 isn't available because the views are so so worth it and that extra privacy is great.... More

Breath-taking location - you can't help but relax and stare out to sea! We stayed two nights - first in one of the older cabins and second in the more luxurious cabins facing out to sea. They are definitely worth the extra money. View, size, facilities all better (room photo is of second cabin - person not going to toilet... More
