More About Hotels near Big Sur...

Ride In, Then Stay Put

Travelers can reach Big Sur easily via the Monterey-Salinas bus system, but will have to rely on personal transportation in the region itself. Those who prefer to stay put will get great views in the accommodations of Treebones Resort, including modern yurts on the cliffs. For something a little more traditional, Big Sur Lodge offers mountain splendor and easy access to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Beautiful Autumns at Big Sur

Hotels by the beach like the Ventana Inn and Spa are best in summer, as Big Sur has cool evenings even in the warmest months. Spring and autumn trips help visitors make the most of wooded lodgings such as those at Glen Oaks that are as much about the fresh air as the rustic comforts of real log cabin living. For more cozy, romantic getaways, bed and breakfast retreats like the Big Sur River Inn and Restaurant are second to none.
