Sliding doors didn't lock, no refrigerator, no microwave, no continental breakfast, no ground on power outlet (couldn't charge computer), and spiders & mosquitoes everywhere. I stay at so many different hotels quite a bit for my work but this is by far the worst lodging ever. Waking up with over a dozen mosquito bites is just not the best feeling.... More

The last time I stayed in Carmel Valley, it was 1960. We found this lodge serendipitously, and I felt like I was time traveling. It is a delight! Nothing has changed since the day they built it. But things are in pretty good repair. Beam ceilings. Every room has a lovely balcony overlooking the treetops. Beautiful grounds. Huge rooms, with... More

We just stayed at the Blue Sky Lodge and I loved it! The feel and vibe of the whole place is fantastic, the "game room" is lovely with a open floor plan, floor to ceiling windows, funky old wood floors, piano, books, etc. The pool area is lovely, and on a hot day it was fantastic for my kids.

The lodge consists mostly of motel style cabins scattered around a pleasantly wooded area walking distance to shops and eateries. The cabins are perfectly comfortable although the decor is a bit tired and the attached patio areas are badly in need of renovation. Beds were comfortable.

I booked this room with the intention of enjoying the large swimming pool as advertised on their website. Upon checking in we were greatly disappointed to see that the pool was drained due to a leak. When I expressed my disappointment about not being able to swim it was met with just a shrug and a "sorry." At the very... More

Thank you very much for your feedback pertaining to your recent stay with us. The necessity to repair our pool was a surprise to us and we were not afforded the opportunity to inform our guests prior to their arrival. We did make arrangements with our sister hotel for our guests to use their pool during this time. Our pool... More

We stayed here 25 years ago and I remembered the name when searching for a low-key, inexpensive place, and satisfactory place to stay as a base for taking an Australian visitor to Big Sur. We had separate rooms and both enjoyed the place. Beds were excellent, pillows were down or down-substitute, coffee machine worked, everything was clean and convenient, and... More

Always love the coziness of the Blue Sky Lodge, it is quiet and peaceful. Centrally located, it is easy to walk to everything in town. Always enjoy a nice relaxing day by the pool and a good soak in the jaccuzi.

Been coming for years and tried the new management. All was well and loved our stay as usual. Pool was not crowded and there are several new restaurants nearby, Plaza Linda was particularly good. Staff was warm and helpful.

I don't like to write such a terrible review but this place was the worst place we have stayed at. The website is deceiving. The rooms were very old and smelled old too. There isn't an ice machine or drinking glasses in the room. There was an ash tray though! That should tell you something about how out dated this... More

It is an odd collection of rooms that make up this motel in Carmel Valley. My room was from the fifties and looked every bit of that. While the bed was comfortable, nothing else was. The TV was unplugged and couldn't be plugged in because there was no three pronged adaptor for the two prong wall socket. The two chairs... More
