My boyfriend and I stayed in the Little Sur Cabins and absolutely loved it. The hotel is an easy find immediately off of Highway 1, but the cabins are actually located about a quarter mile up the road from the main lodge which you enter through your own private gate. The small cabin was stocked with wine and a s'mores kit (for a fee), mini fridge, microwave, sink, and a European modern/ rustic decor was lovely. We too, enjoyed the heated bathroom floors! We could lay in bed and hear the Little Sur River rushing through the red woods and had it not been pouring the day we got there, we would of loved to use our fire pit which had a "throw-in-a-match" ready fire already built for us. We really enjoyed not having T.V.s, I felt having one would of taken away from the quiet and ambiance of the whole experience. The Big Sur Roadhouse was also DELICIOUS! Huge recommendation for their breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We went to Nepenthe and for the view it's great, but the price and quality of food, go to Big Sur Roadhouse. We went once and came back twice the next day, it was that good! Over-all, it was the perfect outdoors - indoors get away and as a young couple, it was one of our most luxurious (and romantic) hotel experiences together.
There are only two things that could of easily made our experience a 5... We were a little disappointed in our bed. It was a little flat and stiff and the down pillows were so mushy we could of slept a bit better... Second, in our bathroom, when you flushed the toilet you got this kind of sewage smell that seemed like it was coming from the shower drain. Not sure what that was about. Not enough to totally disgust anyone, but enough that you noticed it. We just kept the bathroom door closed.
Don't let any of these minor flaws deter you from visiting Glen Oaks Big Sur. The whole experience was wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone I know.
