Big Sur

Looking for a hotel in Big Sur. Going in April 2005 - running the Big Sur marathon AND turning 40 (all in the same weekend!). Looking for someplace nice - but hopefully not impossibly expensive.

Can you all recommend someplace that is $350 per night or less? We may spend more if you can help me justify the cost (heck, it IS my birthday!)- but I doubt we can swing more than $500.

Also - a place with a spa would be nice - will need a massage after running the race.

Thanks in advance.

How about the Ventana Inn & Spa? We were just in Big Sur a few weeks ago. Make sure you have at least one meal at the Sierra Mar at the Post Ranch Inn. Our dinner was outstanding!

Good luck in your marathon! ***kim***

There aren't many options in Big Sur. Check out the Ventana; I've gotten good rates through their website (much lower than normal). Deetjan's is also an option, but some say it's a little too rustic.

Another option is to stay in the Carmel area, where there are several options. But that would probably mean a lot of driving.

Big Sur is a one of a kind place.
