There are not many choices in Big Sur that have reasonable rates. This "resort" is interesting and gives you the rustic feeling of being in Big Sur. The little general store was quaint and the restaurant was very good. The rooms were also quaint and when first entering the room, it had that cabin-in-the-woods look. But after getting settled we realized how inconvenient it was. There were very few places to put anything, only the 2 minuscule nightstands. The bathroom was large and could have easily accommodated shelves or even a vanity top. Without too much expense, or thought, the room could have been made much more comfortable. We had to take a pricier room w a fireplace because that is all they had available. Unfortunately even at the end of March the room was so tiny that we couldn't keep the fireplace on. It only worked until the room was up to temp and then it went out. To keep it burning would mean constantly turning up the thermostat.
The bathroom had no venting and the shower stall was so small the water came out all over the floor. Everything was drenched from condensation after one shower!
We were in cabin L and when the people next door came in late they kept banging into the doorframe, I guess carrying things in, which was adjacent to where our bed was. Then they talked for quite awhile and I felt I could join in the conversation.
Like I said, one step up from camping, but a lot more costly.
