Debating on Big Sur accommodations Post Ranch Inn, Ventana or Glen Oaks

Jump to last reply

We are planning a two to three day long weekend to Big Sur (never been) and we are really struggling with the lodging decision. It is going to be two or three couples and we are considering the following:

Ventana Inn - some friends loved this place while others felt it is nothing special. While significantly less than Post Ranch and I know it is across the highway, I just like nice rooms (I'm a big Four Seasons fan). The fact Ventana is a joie de vie property isn't a good thing in my book as I think of their SF hotels as cheap and quirky (not in a good way).

Post Ranch Inn - over the top expensive but the views from the Cliff Rooms and South Coast House seem amazing concern here is privacy of room (guests above or below you unless we rent the house where it will be our friends. Concern there is the South Coast House too isolated. Also, you see some reviews where the rooms are a little tired. At these prices, I don't want tired. Also, one friend says PRI is where you take your mistress or go to recover from plastic surgery in private.

Glen Oaks - more kitschy but significantly less dollars. Seems like noise issues between rooms so not sure if there are some stand alone cabins which would eliminate this issue. It also doesn't seem as if there would be a good spot for the three couples to hang as a group.

House rental - seems tough to find a truly nice house that allows privacy and space for three couples that is conveniently located.

Leaning towards Post Ranch Inn but am truly at a loss here. Thanks as always.
