We were sooo grateful to get a cabin last minute since all of Big Sur was booked down to San Simeon. We asked for their smallest cabin and got the Little Palm or Palm II room. It was almost half the price of the other rooms and it was fantastic!! The room was cozy with a coffee maker, soft bed and pillows, heater, separate bathroom, huge deck overlooking the ocean!!! down the hill (stair access) there is a market that is well stocked and friendly staff
Arrived March 4th in Big Sur. Camping with friends in tents. The storm on Saturday forced us to pack up and find a hotel. Found Gorda Springs Resort nearby. We arrived wet and freezing at 8pm. John was very helpful renting us a room. We stayed in Cedar South a 2 bedroom shared bath cabin. The cabin was clean and comfortable. On Sunday we had coffee in the cafe and shopped in the store. Thank you again John and the staff at Gorda Springs Lodge in Big Sur.

We stopped at the little cafe attached to the Springs Resort, in order to get some breakfast. The man who served us was cheeky, fun and very friendly! We had a nice breakfast (they were accommodating with some of my fussy requests). Lovely views and free parking. Great place for a quick food stop, with some lovely landscaping and curious art in the gardens.
Big sur was packed because of spring break. I was heading south from Carmel and there seemed to be more people and cars in Big Sur than I had ever seen. So I continued on and came across this little place. There are cabins but I stayed in one of the rooms above the shop. very nice room, no TV but great views of the ocean, great big bathtub, a really sweet spot. Staff of the shop and hotel were very nice if a bit slow with service. Oh, and the wi-fi was very slow too. There is a gas station on site and a restaurant, I was going to have supper there but waited so long to be offed a drink or food I left, bought a sandwich and a couple of beers at the store and was very happy. I recommend.
We stopped here late driving north on the coast. No cell service to check reviews, but we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a fully remodeled cabin called the garden house. Cabin was very clean, plush and comfortable and the expansive views from our bed of the ocean were spectacular!! We ate dinner at the whale watchers cafe and the staff was extremely friendly and food great also! Cost for the room and cafe were a little on the high side but well worth it!!!
This place is 'da bomb. Honest. I have been coming here for years. It's not a 4 or 5 star resort, so don't expect that here. Those places are 50 Miles north, and there you will pay for it!
This place has beautiful views from either the cabins, or the rooms above the store. Cabins are the better way to go because they are more removed from the highway, meaning less road noise. They are rustic.
Now, Big Sur is not cheap. No part of it has discounted prices like you might find in remote Nevada or some place. It's just the reality of this coastal existence. But, this little resort offers tv-free rooms, nice kitchenette facilities, large comfy beds, and unbelievable peace and tranquility built right in to your views.
If you drive up the beautiful Pacific Coast Highway, you may eventually decide you want something to eat.
There's a dearth of the familiar American chains, so it's pot luck where you stop.
We chose the whale watchers cafe at Gorda more because we didn't want to go any further without refreshment, than anything else.
It's a busy site with the gas station as well. It's situated at a spot where there's a great view over the sea.!
We were quickly seated and served in a reasonable time. The waitress told me that they didn't do standard decaff coffee, but she could make decaff expresso with more water in it, if that would be OK for me?
I do like someone who is prepared to think outside of the box to help a guest - and the coffee was great - as was the steak sandwich and the Turkey club sandwich we had.
A refill for the coffee was "no trouble" either.
So, if I'm ever on this beautiful road again and in need of simple refreshment, this is the place I'll be looking out for.
A great location with fantastic views over the coast in big sur, is, just like everything in this coastal stretch, really expensive. The staff were helpful, including getting the restaurant next door to lend us a pan for us to make dinner. We got the old cabin, that had two tiny bedrooms, that was nice and quaint enough, but was really amazing that in the night the calls of seals and sea lions hollored in the night. An avocado tree which dropped some avocadoes in the night gave us a nice encounter with some racoons that were carrying them off early in the morning. If you chose to sleep on big sur, you could do much worse.
