If you read the reviews before booking your room here, then you know what to expect.
First of all, we had to reserve via the phone because they don't do reservations online (and you can't call 24 hours a day, you have to call when they are open local California time.)
We stayed in cabin or room letter J. It was nice. It was not closest to the road, fortunately, because some of the road traffic could have been loud. But, there wasn't too much traffic on the road that night anyway. We also did not have any noisy neighbors and there was no music/band playing from the restaurant/grill that night (it was a Sunday night.)
We only stayed one night, which was perfect. We did not need a shower, fortunately. It was hard to say how long it would take the water to warm up (if there was warm water at all.) In the sink, we ran the water for a minute or two and it did not get warm.
The room is rustic, but cozy. There was a great gas heater that worked really well, and warmed up the room fast (this was November.) Very soft and warm bed. The grill is nice with good food and service, too. Cute little country store located with the check-in desk that has some food items and souvenirs.
Tip - bring an extension cord (or two) with you if you want to charge your phone near your bed. There was only 1 or 2 available outlets in the whole room.
I liked staying here, and probably would again. It's a great location on Route 1/Big Sur. But would not like to stay for more than one night.
