We had a very large room for our family of three, which had a fireplace, a Cali King bed and a twin bed in the large room. A second bedroom with a Queen bed was nice for Mom, while the kids took the main room. We arrived late, so didn't see much of the property, but the front desk folks... More

We stayed at this Hotel for 1 night , when driving from San Francisco to Los Angeles. So i can't say many things about hotel itself. For me it was clean and cosy , with the fireplace, nice balcony, falling cones on the roof all night long and many deers and fawns in the yard near my balcony in the... More

Stayed 2 nights. Location is lovely. Quiet and peaceful. Had a nice end unit. Room was good size with dedicated space for table and four chairs, fireplace with complimentary wood. Lighting was inadequate. Table lamps were cheap Craftsman style with paper shades; low level bulbs didn't help. Front window screen was jammed upon arrival. Had to pull screen out to... More

The good: the restaurant food and staff were good. The location is convenient and easy hiking trails right off the lodge. We had some car trouble and the staff driving around in golf carts stopped to help and were very kind. The bad: the only room available was larger than we needed (2 queens + twin) and for $400/night, was... More

We visited the lodge fur lunch when visiting the state park. Firstly, the restrooms were out of order, which was very inconvenient. We had lunch in the outdoor seating area. When our meal arrived, it was cold and one of our family had specifically asked for no cheese due to an allergy but the meal arrived with cheese. We mentioned... More

We stayed in a cabin with a king bed. We were impressed with the park, trails, and cute little cabin! The staff at the lodge were very nice and knowledgeable about the area. The cabin didn't have AC, but we left our windows open and it was perfect! We wouldn't definitely stay there again!

When we're not splurging on Post Ranch Inn or Ventana, we love the Big Sur Lodge. It's not luxurious, but it is quite comfortable, and the setting is gorgeous. On my last visit there, I walked around what seemed to me to be the best part of the property and made note of the best locations in terms of privacy... More

The thing that this hotel has going for it is the location - set in the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. On check-in the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was spacious and clean and would have suited a family stay with a separate room with twin beds. There was no air conditioning except for an industrial sized fan... More
