My wife and I were camping to the north in Plaskett Creek when we had some car trouble. I put my family up here while getting towed and repaired. There are no phones in the room. There are no Tv's in the room. There is a payphone but they don't let it ring. If it rings, the staff answers and after much pestering I got them to at least take a message. The folks of Gorda seem like really nice people but they are a little "off" I think from spending their time in this secluded little outpost on HWY 1. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. about 40 minutes north of Cambria and an hour south of Big Sur.
On the plus side, the view of the ocean is incredible and they have regular whale sightings due to the irregular section of the coast on which they sit. It is very deep right next to the cliff so whales come quite close.
It's not a destination, it's a place to stopover. The restaurant is quite expensive and the room was a little over priced.
