My husband and I just returned from a three night stay at the motor lodge at Glen Oaks (rm #10). We loved this place! Great value, hip modern room with a rustic cabin feel. Heated bathroom floors were a bonus. Equipped with a small fridge with filtered water (bring your own plastic bottles) games in the room, yoga mats and gas fireplace. We did not experience the traffic noise others mentioned, as we closed the front window at night and we often sleep with our white noise app at hotels to help filter out any kind of unwanted noises. We spent each night after dinner at the fire pit just a few steps from our room, with a glass of wine and we met some fellow guests. Breakfast was just steps away either at Ripplewood restaurant (where we ate each morning, loved it) or you could walk across the street to Roadhouse. We did eat dinner at Roadhouse one night and it was excellent. Big Sur Bakery was our other favorite dinner choice. The Glen Oak property was well maintained with lots of privacy provided by lush greenery. Free wifi was a nice touch to watch netflix or check email since there is virtually no cell or 3G service throughout most of the Big Sur area. If I had to complain about anything, I would say the quality of the mattress was not as nice as other properties I have stayed at. We still slept very well, but just not as comfy as I had hoped. We took a ride across the street to check out the cabins at Glen Oak. They look nice, and private. I wouldn't hesitate to check them out, but the motor lodge was slightly less expensive. All in all I would highly recommend the Glen Oaks Motor Lodge for its value, central location to the state parks and the convenience of having two restaurant options and a general store all within walking distance. A real gem.
