Recently I have had an influx of people who have thought they had made a reservation at the Hacienda and apparently the number that is given on this webpage is incorrect. The number that is given is for IHG hotels on the Fort Hunter Liggett army base but is not for the Hacienda Hotel. The correct number for reservations for the Hacienda Is 831-386-2900. I am sorry for any of the confusion. There has been many disappointed people whom had thought that they were staying at the Hacienda and called for a reservation and ended up having a reservation at the hotel across street. Thank you -Suzanne Troupe, Hacienda Manager

This is a great way to relax, it's simple, quiet and clean. We stayed two nights. During the day we drove to the coast and went to the beaches. We brought our food back to our mini-suite (had a refrigerator) and had our picnic there. The staff was friendly. The breakfasts are very simple at the Hacienda, but good enough to start your day.

Room Tip: Ask for the mini-suite or the larger apartment.

We stayed here for 1 night during our California mission trip. Mission San Antonio de Padua is located on the army base (you don't need to go through security). The mission is beautiful and one of the best examples of the expansive property in which missions were built. The Hacienda was built for William Randolph Hearst in 1930 as ranch house. He commissioned Julia Morgan to design it in the California mission style. It is so well done that when we first drove up, we thought The Hacienda was Mission San Antonio de Padua! You will need to go through a security checkpoint to go to the lodge. Rooms include cowboy rooms (public restroom/shower), garden rooms (private bathroom), tower rooms, DVQ's , and mini-suites. All rooms include stove, oven, microwave, small refrigerator, kitchenettes and internet access. Complimentary "express breakfast" is included. Pets welcome with $25.00 deposit and a fee of 5.00 per day. Owners must have shot records for the animal.

Room Tip: Stay in a Tower room or one of the suites. The cowboy rooms have shared bathrooms.

We stayed for one night at the Hacienda, in a "cowboy" room (shared bathroom a few doors down). It was my first stay at the Hacienda, and my travel companion's second time there.

Overall, the lodge was as expected. Pretty and interesting to look at from the outside. Guest rooms are bare bones, but comfortable. There's a good enough breakfast spread included iwth the room, but other than that, there's no access to any satisfying food on the base, and my understanding is that it's many miles to drive to a place to get food elsewhere. Knowing this, I prepared food at home to be heated in the microwave for dinner, and we ate it in the bar -- we were happy with that arrangement.

The room was comfortable, but the facilities could have been a bit cleaner (coffee maker was not clean, and the bathroom was not as clean and well stocked as it was on my companion's prior stay.)

We stayed in early June, and it was HOT -- 108 degrees in the mid-afternoon. The rooms don't have air conditioning, but were surprisingly cool enough with the door open. At night, the temperature dropped into the 60s or so, so it was pretty pleasant.

There's a bar in the lodge, and the night we were there, there were some rowdy (non-military) folks in the bar. Around 2AM we were awakened by drunken shouting, which we weren't thrilled with, and since there's no on-site management of the facility, we had no recourse but to wait out the noise.

The army base is very quiet, and there's nothing really to do there. The men and women stationed at the base were all friendly and polite.

The only food we were allowed to access on the base was from the bowling alley -- they offer sandwiches for $5, pizza for $12-14, soda and beer. Not good if you're following a cardiac diet (as we were), so we were glad to have brought in our own dinner.

I'm not sure I'd stay there again, but I'm glad to have tried it once.

One suggestion--make sure you are clear about the army base facilities available before you arrive. We misunderstood what was available to us and were ill-prepared. Otherwise, this is a unique property with historic ambiance, friendly staff, updated, beautifully furnished rooms with comfortable beds. It is also pet-friendly. The views of the Valley of the Oaks, and the proximity to a lovely California mission helped to make this a truly one-of-a-kind experience for us. If so desired, you can travel the Naciamento-Ferguson Road to the ocean, which is a narrow, 2-lane road filled with hairpin turns, rock slide areas and spectacular views. You drop down in the middle of the Big Sur Coast area. If you like scenic drives, this one is definitely a must-do to add to your bucket list! We stayed in Tower Room B and were very happy with the decor, and the space. In addition to the great bed...there was a sleeper couch and there were 2 closets.

Room Tip: Since the rooms are reasonable, I would suggest a tower room, or even a suite. Talk to the office in person and they will be very helpful in describing each room to you.
