Gorda Springs Resort
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Big Sur
Reviewed 23 June 2017 via mobile

Beautiful cabins, gorgeous view of the ocean, delicious food, friendly staffs it worth a stay, it a place you would plan to come back again to. Phone and internet connection are sucks but it worth to leave behind electronics and just stare at the beautiful ocean, breath a clean air, look at the sunset, and sleep in a comfort room with a peaceful mind. I love the place so you too will. I will recommend it if you needs a one stop relax time or a getaway.

As with many others, driving from the North it was about 40 miles until finally coming across this little gem. I was thankful there was a room. And it was awesome to wake up, open the door and see the ocean across the street. (It was very dark when we arrived.)

It is an ages property so you can't expect 5-star perfection. But for a coastal stop it was old school PCH at its best.

I enjoy this type of stop as it gives you a little taste of the past, the way things were before the cookie cutter hotels started to pop up everywhere.

Room Tip: Walls are thin, so ask for an end room if they have one available to avoid noise on both sides. We...

This property's unique location and scenic views don't come cheap. It is clean but has very basic rooms without televisions and dated bathrooms .Travelers beware that if you are stuck in this big Sur area on highway one it is going to cost you an arm and a leg for everything you touch.

We were driving down the Highway 1 and had been driving a while. It was dark and we had no cell service to check any reviews on the place or to see how far it was until the next hotel..... Its a good job we stopped as it would have been a while. We stayed in one of the top floor rooms, it was clean and a nice pleasant place to stay. The staff were kind and polite. It was certainly a relaxing experience. The only reason I've refrained from giving this a higher star, is they know how to charge. I think we paid out $300 all together for the room, supper and a breakfast and that was before we paid fuel. Still, if its the only place for miles, I suppose they know people will pay it.
