Our room offers an astonishing view of Big Sur, which is unbeatable. The room equips with full kitchen though we didn’t use it. Restaurant on site offers panoramic view and the food is great and reasonably priced. The hotel is driving distance to all attractions, which is convenient. The furnitures and carpet are a bit outdated which caused a smell after an initial entering of the room. Overall, we had a good stay. Will recommend.
