We did not stay here, but only made a pit-stop on our Route 1 drive. Two Limey tourists (us) were having difficulty using the public phone, and the girl in the store came to rescue us and offered to let us use her phone (for free). We were so touched, we had to let you know.

Only reason this wasn't 5 rated was the wifi or lack thereof The location and views cannot be beaten, the rooms are clean and spacious and excellent value. The breakfast was great and the welcome excellent, it's a great stopover hotel after the drive down through big sur

We spent our anniversary at the Ragged Point Inn and it was totally worth the drive and price. We drove up from SoCal where temperature was topping triple digits over a mid-August weekend. When we arrived at Ragged Point Inn, the area was covered in marine layer, very chilly, approximately 55-60 degrees. What a difference in temperature! The fog covered,... More

Ragged Point will be a touchstone for our trips down the coast. The resort is beautifully positioned on cliffs above the ocean. Our room was clean and comfortable. We ate in the bar because se were not so hungry and we wanted to watch the Olympics. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed at the Ragged Point Inn for two nights for a wedding, and we were not impressed with our stay. Beginning with the reservation policy, we booked two rooms before the rooms were blocked for the wedding, and our reservation emails explicitly stated that the rooms could be cancelled three days before arrival. When we tried... More

We stayed a night here while on Big Sur road trip. The place gave me a feeling of being at camp. In a good way! The views are beautiful. We hiked down to the water, which we all loved. The room was clean, I would definitely stay here again.

I gave 3 stars two years ago. That was mean of me. This time I appreciated the location more. We ate outside next to the fire pit. Beautiful sunset through the Monterey pines. Reception and dinner service were excellent. But, it's still just a good motel with a good restaurant. Excellent bed and shower. Wifi limited as it's satellite connection.... More

I was looking for accommodations near Hearst Castle, and was disappointed by the overpriced, outdated motel selections I read about here. I spent just a little more than I would have for one of those depressing looking motels, for a garden room (with peekaboo ocean view) at Ragged Point Inn, and it was well worth it! The room was clean,... More

My wife and I stay at Ragged Point in 2014 and loved it. I made a reservation on June 25 2016 for September 10 our wedding anniversary. Today August 5 I was emailed that our reservation was cancelled due to a large group reservation leaving us high and dry at this late date to get a seaside room. Not only... More

Bad experience, arrived late got dinner went to bed and the next day we discover that there was blood spot on the sheets. Spoke to the lady at the front desk when we were checking out she just gave me excuses why she believes the sheets had not been changed. Very bad service.
