We stayed in the Redwood Cabin - Forest View Room which was absolutely amazing. The fire pit was very secluded and had great views into the forest. During the day we visited Pfeiffer Beach. The staff at Glen Oaks were really helpful and informative of the area. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We recently stayed at the Glen Oaks which was a beautiful, modern cabin. The rooms were clean and the staff was very hospitable. The best part was the fire pit near our room where you could sit and have a glass of wine. Nearby there are a ton of trails where you can see some of the Redwoods!

We spent a lot of time researching the area and made a perfect choice ! We were in an Adobe Motor Lodge Fireside Queen. We selected the location over the cabins because of the firepit area where we meet other travelers in the evening to share experiences. We also walked the trails where the cabins were located and found the... More

Stayed 9/12/16 for 3 nights, in the Big Sur Cabin. This was our 2nd stay (stayed in the lodge before). I will start with the good: comfortable beds and pillows, reception brought us matches when we called to ask if there were any stored on site (ours were damp and didn't work well), free firewood, cute decor, well-kept grounds, and...

We had a wonderful stay 3 night stay at Glen Oaks. The staff is friendly and made us feel like long lost friends. The rooms are lovely, great bathroom with heated floors. Fireplace with timers is a nice touch. Next time I would choose a room further from the road - as you are right on Hwy 1. The mattress... More

We loved the design of the room in the lodge. While cozy, it has everything from a modern gas fireplace to a large walk-in shower with a stone floor that makes you feel like you are showering outside. The bed was comfortable. At the lodge, there is some highway 1 noise but it dies down at night and with the... More

Stayed two nights in August and felt like we were thousands of miles away. Although the parks were closed due to the fire, the property was nestled in acres of private property right along Big Sur River. We felt like the redwoods, birds and deer were the only other guests. We stayed in Cabin #7 right next to the river... More

My husband and I just enjoyed a quick one night stay at Glen Oaks in Big Sur. We were in the Big Sur Cabin with a River View. We checked in the moment the clock struck 3, as we knew we only had the one night. We enjoyed every minute of our stay! We brought in food and beverages so... More

Glen Oaks is located in the heart of Big Sur . It is comfortable and well-maintained. The restaurant across the street ( The Roadhouse) was fantastic, serving delicious breakfasts and lunches as well as freshly brewed coffee with donuts made on-site. From here it is an easy drive north to Point Lobos or south to a variety of destinations. Note:... More
