We made a 1 night stop in Big Sur to relax and "unplug" during our Highway 1 adventure. We did not have cell service or internet and we were totally fine with that! Nice clean room and very quiet. This was our second visit and we were happy again!

My sister and I spent two nights here. Room was nice but expensive. It must have been off season because there weren't many other visitors, but that was fine. Weather wasn't too hot. Hiking from the park was nice.

This place has massive potential but it seems all the revenue earned from hotel stays is not being reinvested in the property. At $340 for a room it seems the management done;t care as they have pretty much a captive audience. Inseams that they did a makeover a few years ago but did not have the budget for the bathrooms...

The location of this lodge is beautiful. The room we had was dirty and extremely outdated. The bed was awful and I think the pillows were about 10 years old. Spiders and dust all over the room. Due to a fire, the lodge lost power (while we were in the dining room). The staff assured us that the generator would... More

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

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
