Our only regret about our stay at Glen Oaks was that it was for only one night. We would have loved to stay for a few more nights, as both the motel and of course Big Sur itself is a truly great place.
Glen Oaks is one of those small gems one comes across and we give it our warmest recommendations. Glen Oaks offers the best "simple" accomodation we have experienced so far. It is a clean, comfortable and cool motel which offers a great place to stay while in Big Sur. The pictures on their website do not do the rooms justice.
The motel does not serve food, so we dined at the Big Sur Roadhouse across the street (very good) and the breakfast place next door (also very good).
The staff at the front desk was helpful and knowledgeable and provided us with maps and suggestions for hikes.
At $200 per night, it is not cheap, but it is worth every cent.
