My wife and I go to Big Sur most years on a trip to the coast and for a few years past have stayed in The Cottage at Glen Oaks. Under the same ownership but with new management for a year or so past, last year we did have a few minor grumbles we raised and suggestions we made concerning equipment and supplies given at the cabins including The Cottage; this year, we found that most of our previous comments had been taken on board and in fact we were welcomed back to this lovely place. Unlike many guests, we don't find the motel units suit us at all, so we can't comment on them, but we do enjoy this cottage in the woods. The management is helpful and responsive, housekeeping standards are excellent and all the staff seem pleasant as well as efficient.
Whilst Glen Oaks is undoubtedly good value by Big Sur standards, we do think that weekend premiums have now reached a level too high and we have told the general manager so; but our comments were courteously accepted and responded to constructively and we appreciate this.
We hope to be returning again in future.
