I can't emphasize enough how much we enjoyed at Glen Oaks Big Sur. It was my husband and I's first time to drive down to Big Sur and we wanted to spend more time In the area so we decided to stay overnight. Glen Oaks...More
What a wonderful place to stay in Big Sur! I feel like the term “motor lodge” made me think of something more outdated and run down, but this was just as nice as a basic hotel. The rooms look like they were recently updated and...More
Our cabin helped us understand the essence of Big Sur. Towering Redwoods, the ever-present Big Sur River, chairs by the water for quiet time, the modern and luxurious yet rustic Big Sur Cabin (an upgrade on a Sunday night), and solitude after the breathtaking coastal...More
We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon trip up the PCH. It was definitely our favorite place we stayed on the whole trip. I would have been happy to have stayed there the whole time. The room was clean, the 2 employees we...More
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in the Forrest View Cabin. We shared a wall with the River view room. We only heard very light voices and footsteps here and there. The stay was quiet and peaceful. Just what we needed and was...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.
