The room was clean if completely ordinary, and overpriced even given prices on the California coast. The front desk staff was rude and dismissive, not helpful at all with several requests I had. The continental breakfast was pedestrian, skimpier than most. Lots of noise from the freeway, and I could hear the person in the room next to me snoring... More

Wonderful view from the chairs outside the bungalows, very quiet and very much "off the grid", nicely appointed room (see more below), the fish and chips lived up to their excellent reputation but were only served for lunch not dinner. Pros: Clean room, very nice and clean bathroom and tiled shower, comfy bed, Keurig coffee maker, nice view of the... More

Priceless view, picnic area also available, general store, clean bathrooms. Prices were $$, fish & chips- awesome, black & blue burger great - loved the bun. Service was great. Good place to stop as not a lot of choices on PCH 1. Store has unique finds, plus you can pet an alpaca (stuffed animal) - haha!

It was just two of us and we wanted to spend a night somewhere in the middle of Big Sur and we were willing to splurge. So, we did. No honeymoon. Just wanted the room and the view. It was worth it! We kept the window wide open until after sunset. Now, May is still a little chilly in this... More

I am used to very modern accommodations and was a little concerned that this "motel court-looking" property would be too rustic for me. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms did appear recently redone and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom worked fine. The cleaning staff must have knew I was coming because the place was spotless. We chose Lucia...

We made a lunch stop along the way downward to Pismo beach. Wow! what a place. If we hadnt paid for the room at Pismo we would definitely stay here for a night. Three of us (husband son and me) had our great meal. Every dish was properly made and very delicious. All was a bit pricey though (including the... More

We stayed for one night in one of the cabins owned by and a few hundred yards on from the popular stopping place Lucia Lodge, on the Big Sur. I was prepared to give the property a five because the cabin was very comfortable, quiet and had a view to die for and the surrounding area was wonderful, even though... More

We had stopped for coffee at the little Lucia Lodge store on another trip down the PCH and figured that next time we passed wanted to stay at this place. So, we did spend one night at Lucia Lodge on our latest trip down the PCH. What is the attraction? Why, staying in an adorable little place right on a... More

I stayed 1 night in cabin #7 in May. It was a grey windy day, but this was simply the most amazing place to stay, to look out over the ocean and hear the waves from your room.... sit by the gas fire and read.. or walk up behind the lodges in the morning to watch the mist roll out.... More

My wife and myself drove down the PCH from San Francisco to LA in April '16. We were looking for a place to stay for one night in Big Sur. Looking on TA I couldn't find anyplace in the main part of Big Sur that had good ratings and didn't cost a small fortune. I settled on Lucia Lodge. I... More
