The big selling point of this motel is, of course, the view. Situated right on a Big Sur cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the views are stunning both in the evening and the morning; at night you won't see much - there is no town or even building around in the vicinity of the motel, except for the cabins and,...

Spectacular view, breathtaking place on the edge. Some of the house have nice chairs outside. Simple cottage with the necessary. Clean and nice. Very dark walk on the road from restaurant. Nice breakfast in the restaurant.

Beautiful views, even on a rainy and foggy day. Room was small but comfortable enough, although I'm not sure it was worth the price. Wi-Fi was spotty and did not work consistently. Restaurant food and wine from the store were very expensive ($34 for the cheapest bottle of wine!). Store and restaurant close at 8PM, so you're own your own...

We have all heard stories of driving the Big Sur. My mother made the trip with her parents in the 1930's. My parents made a similar trip in the 1970's. And now we took the same trip 50 years later. Not a whole lot has changed. The drive along the scenic highway. Stops at rustic places like Lucia Lodge are...

I stayed here on my birthday with my boyfriend and it was the most beautiful and relaxing cottage ever! The room was clean and they were very accommodating. It's far from regular city life but still close enough if you forget to bring something. I would come back for another visit any time!

What can I say? I proposed to my (now) wife overlooking the Pacific at Lucia Lodge. Fortunately she said yes. We had the Honeymoon Cabin at the end (Cabin 10) which has the best view. We loved it. The food was pretty good too.

We booked room 4 which was described as partial ocean view and when we arrived we were so disappointed to find out that there was NO ocean view because the property in front had been extended at least 2 years ago. however, their website hadn't been changed to reflect this. 2 days before we arrived, we received an email telling...
