Of all the places I explored, this place had the best prices for lodging. It was just fine. The restaurant and gift shop were excellent. Really great to go to such a tourist destination and not feel at all gouged. Kudos to the owner. Thank...More

We ate breakfast at Ripplewood resort and it was really expensive. It's not uncommon for Big Sur, but it was even pricier than normal for really average food. I would not recommend them, but there are limited choices.

Try the potatoe gratin instead of regular hashbrowns, they are tasty. The service was great and the food was delicious.
