Perfect location in Big Sur, this lodge is absolutely amazing. Right on Highway 1, there's a river that runs through the property, and there are chairs in the river so you an get a cocktail and dip your toes in the water. So relaxing! It's just 6 miles to the beach, and Pt. Sur Historic Park. It's a historic inn so the buildings are a bit dated, but in my opinion it just adds to their charm. This place is completely laid back. You'll definitely want to plan on having dinner in their restaurant. THere's free wifi in certain areas, and an all-day dining restaurant/bar.

"this restaurant is not suitable for people like you"

We are a mixed race couple (Hispanic mixed and Asian)
We stopped at the Big Sur inn for a bite to eat, but were treated very poorly by the hostess. When my wife asked for the manager, he as well acted as if she was at fault and offered no apology for the hostess' actions. His final comment to us was "this restaurant is not suitable for people like you"

If you are a non-white person, PLEASE DO NOT STOP HERE. Apparently this is not the first Racist complaint about this location...
