My boyfriend brought me here as a surprise on our holiday to propose and I cannot thank everyone at the Post Ranch Inn enough for literally the most amazing experience!

We arrived and was greeted by the amazing staff who were so helpful, taking our bags, taking us to our room e

My second visit to the Post Ranch Inn, and I have to say, this place has a distinctly different vibe than almost any other place on earth...it's where reality meets the spiritual world! The natural splendor is spectacular! If sitting up high on a cliff overlooking the Pacific doe

We splurged for a weekend getaway to Post Ranch Inn for my birthday. Unfortunately, our ocean front room didn't meet our expectations for luxury. The toilet area was not private: separated from the room by a wall that was open at the top near the ceiling. The tiled shower/bathtub

Had always wanted to visit as I had heard so many good things about the place but ironically from people that used to go frequently that stopped as it's just gotten too expensive for what it is. I would call it nice but its incredibly boring and it's not Tahiti. Can't give it a r

I had a wonderful stay at Post Ranch Inn. I stayed in the butterfly room that felt like a luxury treehouse with all the amenities fit for a fairy goddess :). My own private redwood forest by the sea. The grounds are immaculate and the dining experience was 5 star.

Hi there, are there other restaurants that are a short drive from Post Ranch Inn that you would recommend? I've booked dinner at the restaurant but thought it might be nice to venture out and try something different. Thanks in advance.
Yes many close by. And the Post Ranch staff will drive you to and from them so you never have to get behind the wheel :-)

how serious is the 18+ age restriction? I have 16 and 18 year old mature daughters...far from young, loud kids. Really want to stay but don't want any issues.
They are very open to questions on this topic so I'd just give them a call. I can't imagine they'd say no to your request.

What is the best room type to stay in at the Post Inn Hotel in Big Sur California?
In my opinion, the ones with the direct ocean views!

Do the tree house rooms at the Post Ranch Inn ever go down in price? Ugh I've been eyeing this hotel for a couple of years now and it seems like a gazillion dollars to stay here even on a random night!
Hi, I don't think you will get a price reduction as it is always almost at full capacity. My advice to you is, if finance is a real issue, go for fewer days. You only live once, go! Its only money and you can't take it with you.

Don't think so - we did the same thing, had it on our bucket list for years then decided to just go for it w a special occasion. Will remember it forever.

"The Castro House is expensive and worth every penny! Very private!"
"All the rooms are excellent. Some of the Butterfly rooms are built on top of another room, so not as private,"
"Ocean or Coastal Room"
"I don't think there's a bad room in the place"
"Only consider rooms facing the sea."
