Reviewed 28 June 2013

This place isn't particularly cheap, so I was pleased with how nice it was. We had a king fireplace room; the toiletries were nice, the bed was very comfy, and while the furnishings were updated, they were all in a tasteful craftsman style totally appropriate for a park proud of its CCC heritage. The pool was big and nice, and...

We REALLY enjoyed Big Sur Lodge! After reading the other reviews, I was a bit apprehensive but loved it! The cabin was quiet (despite a large group of kids there - never heard them), the temperature in the cabin perfect, the wild turkeys in our yard fun, no TV to distract, we DID have Wi-Fi, the dinner excellent (except the...

We loved our room at the Big Sur Lodge. The front desk and restaurant staff were extremely helpful. Unit 33 was close enough to the pool but still allowed us peace and quiet during our visit. Grounds well kept and really enjoyed watching the blue jays and turkeys walk past our room many times a day. We will definitely be...

I loved our room. It had a fireplace and was large and set back away from the pool. I had asked for that (away from the pool) to be sure we had something quiet. I had read reviews where there were complaints of noise from the pool heater I believe. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. They gave...

We stayed in unit 37 at the far end of the property and it was very quiet and quite comfortable. There is a wood burning fireplace in the room and the room was permeated with the smell of previous fires which would be something to consider if you are sensitive to that. The bathroom was OK, could stand to be...

The most unwelcoming front desk 'staff'. No clue who's guest booked. We were part of a wedding entourage and the 'staff' couldn't even tell who is booked & who is not on their system. Very unhelpful, all others can be forgivable as this a Lodge style accommodation, but rude & unhelpful staff is not. I'd rather drive up another 20...

For the ammentities, I would say our overall opinion of the Big Sur Lodge was that it was overpriced. We stayed there for one night. There is no internet, TV or alarm clocks (we knew that going in) Although we did enjoy the on-property turkeys that "gobbled" us awake. The double-queen room was more expensive than warranted for a pre-Memorial...

My wife and I stayed at Big Sur Lodge this last weekend. We found the service at the lodge is very poor. No phone service in the room, no Internet service or Wi-Fi service either, and no TV in the room. When we got into our room the baggage rack was broken, the light outside our door wasn’t working and...

Second leg of California college visits with high school daughter, looking for convenient place to provide a bit of local color for a night traveling between Santa Cruz and SLO. "Cabins" are really multi-unit buildings - where we stayed - but pricey ($200+ per night). Tradeoff is worth it, as you're in the middle of the park, off the road,...

My review would be nearly identical to the one from lilly57. On our trip along the coast, my family decided at the last minute to stay overnight. The location in the woods and near the coast cannot be beat. The accommodation was large with a separate bedroom, bath, fireplace and patio. We had 3 adults and 2 small children who...
