The Ventana Inn has an excellent location in Big Sur. I stayed in on of the low rent rooms ($429)that looked out on the forest.
Rooms very very nicely appointed, nice beds, sheets, flat screen T.V. Fireplace in room, nice toiletries
1. I arrived at my room at about 6:30 PM on a cold cloudy/rainy day I was welcomed by a room that was 58 F.. It was freezing cold. Since they don't have much for heaters I was cold in my room for about 3 hours. I called to the front desk to let them know and there was no apology, no amenity offered, nothing. I might expect something like this at a Super 8, but in a $400 a night hotel room this is an inexcusible omission of service on the part of the management.
2. Room service is only available from 6-9 pm. I have gotten hosed at more than one hotel for room service, but they only offered dinner type items- a steak for $47.00. fish for $42.00- no sandwich menu,no snacks nothing. If you want a meal at Ventana plan on spending some money.
3. The crowd there is really California snotty, very very uppercrusty like they all stepped out of GQ. So we weren't wild about the vibe.
