We are thinking of staying here for 2 nights Memorial Day weekend. Any feedback- positive/negative? Hoping to enjoy some hiking, biking and relaxing. Heading down to Big Sur also - any recommendations on places to stay? Post Ranch is out of budget, but want something with great views and nice, clean rooms.

If you are askig about Coastanoa, its about 45 miles away from San Francisco between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz. It is not in the rea of Big Sur. You might try Pfeiffer State Park Lodge. In general, Big Sur lodging is high price as its limited number of rooms. You might try Carmel or Monterey as a base for more inexpensive rooms and then drive down the coast. (Or on the south end Cambria or San Simeon.)

We stayed at Costanoa and liked it. We stayed in one of the lodge rooms vs. a tent.

As for Big Sur, this place is neat, certainly cost effective and kind of along the same vein as Costanoa....
