I don't normally write reviews for places I like because they just get more expensive and more booked but we love this place. Get a Cliffside room and you have the same thing as Post Ranch with a $1300 a night discount. This was our...More

Great views, gorgeous grounds. Just don’t eat in the restaurant. Lousy food and horrible service. The walk-up counter in the back, on the other hand, has my favorite hamburger on the coast.

Stayed at an inn near here; while travelling down PCH during the wintertime. Absolutely gorgeous views of the coastline and beautiful during sunset. Both nights watched the sunsets from this area.

Looking for a restroom break after elephant seal...behind the place is the scenic Ragged Point. Unfortunately not enough time to explore the trail. Had a good coffee break though. Would recommend the place for at least a 15 mins break.

This was a totally impromptu stay. Looking for someplace to stay for the night right around sunset on a Saturday night. While I think the place was a bit overpriced for a half empty inn during the middle of December, I must say I couldn’t...More

We drove up the PCH on Thanksgiving Day after a good rain so the fire smoke was gone and the air was crisp and clear. Ragged Point is a good stop with a restaurant, snack shop, gift shop, gas station and hotel. We had a...More

Wanted to show visitors Big Sur, but didn't have time to drive ll the way. Drove to Ragged Point and got the real feel. Didn't walk to sea level. Highly recommended.
