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

I spent many fun childhood Summers at Blue Sky Lodge. I thought I would take a trip back in time to some very fond memories. Yuck! Very sad to say that the place is rundown. The grounds need a gardener. The lawn is full of brown patches, the patio furniture is rusty. The cement throughout the resort (including walking paths)... More

We were here in Carmel Valley for a wedding, and went for the lowest price place with decent reviews. The Blue Sky Lodge was super-friendly though, and with the optional little kitchenette and the beautiful balcony, more than just a cheap location. The pool and hot tub were good diversions, and the pool dog was very friendly. The outside of... More

I stayed here for one night as a stop off on a road trip up highway 1 and wasn't expecting much for the price. What I found was a spacious cabin (double and single bed) with coffee making facilities, TV, nice bathroom, ample heating and peace and quiet. The kitsch 70s decor just added to the whole ambience of the... More

My husband, our two children (3 and 8) and I stayed here for four days. It was peaceful and so lovely. The beds were comfortable. We prefer a firm mattress and were very satisfied. The private deck was a plus and saw deer many times during our stay. The short walk to stores and shops is just one more reason... More

Blue Sky is not the place to stay if you are looking for great decor or easy access to downtown Carmel and Monterey. It is plain old motel basic in a lovely location. It feels secluded, among manificent Oaks and central coast vegetation, and it is next to the picturesque Carmel valley village with ecellent restaurants and wine tasting shops.... More
