We absolutely loved our stay at Glen Oaks! They are located right in the middle of Big Sur nestled in the forest and it is a beautiful location. We stayed in the Abobe Fireside King room and it was perfect! The bed was very comfortable...More
We took our teenage kids to Glen Oaks and what a perfect place for a getaway — to escape the electronics and hustle and bustle. Accommodations were lovely, comfortable and clean. Personnel were pleasant and helpful. And location was great for easy and quick access...More
Adobe Motor Lodge Fireside King room, which we booked at over $400 per night was a bit of a disappointment. The room was very dark and although the online showed a large window for the room photo, that window is well covered and is looking...More
This is a cool place...opt for one of the cabins in the woods...well worth it. Only draw back is that if you have trouble getting up, or sitting down, on a bed or couch which is only 18" off the ground..this isn't for you.
This was our first trip to Big Sur, and this was the perfect way to experience it. We stayed in the Big Sur cabin with the outdoor tubs. It was pricey but so worth it for us. Loved sitting the river and just watching the...More

Been visiting BigSur for 35 years, often staying at Glen Oaks. Room choice should depend on what you like best. Motel rooms have been modernised , have heated shower room floor etc., nicely appointed and are close to front desk,; but they are quite small, in two blocks, each of rooms connected by rather thin walls, and are very near to the highway so can be a bit noisy. Cabins are very different, nicely furnished, mostly more secluded and offering at least some self-catering kit though mostly only microwave......some near the river, which is good to lull you to sleep! I think two are "semi-detached" so check if you would really prefer not to have a connected neighbour....Of course it's further to the office and the roadhouse for breakfast or free morning coffee/doughnut too! We think best is the one called "The Cottage" which is on the same side of the highway as the office, very secluded, and the only one which has full kitchen including oven, giant Smeg fridge-freezer and it has a very very comfortable bed.
Your choice! Good luck.....

There is a massive landslide that closed CA 1 between LA and Glen Oaks Big Sur. It is supposed to reopen late summer. That is not a firm date. We went to Glen Oaks from Los Angeles in September 2017 and did have to take... More
There is a massive landslide that closed CA 1 between LA and Glen Oaks Big Sur. It is supposed to reopen late summer. That is not a firm date. We went to Glen Oaks from Los Angeles in September 2017 and did have to take 101 to Monterrey then go south on CA 1. Still completely worth it. Check online before your trip to see the status.
