We have stayed at the lodge two times in the past. The first time was as advertised, rustic. Then the second time we found the place had been re-done. This time we found the place very run down. We spent more for a room here than at an ocean front room in Monterey. To say the least we were disappointed. There are other motels in Big Sur (we have not stayed in them) a lot less money and they could not be any worse than this place.
The park is a special place and you should stop by if you have the time. Just don’t stay here. And the restaurant is not all that either. Too bad on both counts because the location is great and could be a great place if run correctly.
Next time we will stay in Monterey/Carmel as our home base and take day trips to Big Sur (maybe forty five to an hours drive, most of it along the coast anyway).
