Beyond 5 Stars in the Forest

Aug 4th, 2020

Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur is a must-go! While quite arguably the most expensive choice for the area, the price is justified by the grounds, rooms, service, and food. During our stay this past weekend we took advantage of trails on property, falconry, restaurant and spas. It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway during these trying times. Take advantage of everything the hotel has to offer, and unwind. Make sure to take advantage of Sierra Mar, it deserves its Michelin Guide notoriety. With views that rival Nepenthe and food so good that you won’t need to leave, I was surprised with how impressed we were with the restaurant. Lastly, the staff were extremely helpful, inviting, and friendly. We will be back, keep up the great work! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

"Would NOT recomment to anyone"

Aug 3rd, 2020

My husband and I travel often and stay primarily in five-star hotels. We don't mind spending the extra money on a beautiful room that is updated, comfortable, and quiet. This was not the case when we recently stayed at The Post Ranch Inn. Having been there fifteen years ago the views are everything at this property so we booked a room with a view, the lower coast house. We were traveling with another couple and they booked the same for three nights. We were not aware that there is a lower coast and an upper coast house meaning we would have people staying above us. Most people visit The Post Ranch Inn because it's so peaceful, relaxing, quiet, etc. Our experience was the complete opposite, from the very first night we were woken up by the guests staying above us, and this continued for all three nights. The couple that were with us had their own room and had the same experience with noise from the people staying above them. In addition to the noise from the guests above, there was a mouse that would make a noise every night. We spent our days walking and having lunch at the "meditation" pool listening to the sounds of construction going on in the three units next to the meditation pool The whole time we could hear the saw cutting the stone for the walking paths and the sounds of construction. Bottom line if you are still reading this is. Don't go until the rooms are updated, they finish the remodel and they have a management staff in place to deal with these issues. When we complained they told us that they have never had anyone complain about the guests above in the upper coast houses. It's not worth the money and the risk of exposure to COVID19.

Visit with “no” visit...

Aug 2nd, 2020

Last November we stayed at the beautiful Auberge de Soleil and there, we were recommended to check out Post Ranch Inn hotel in Big Sur. This time, being in a area we decided to stop and check it out. Our interest was not only in consider it as a vacation destination but also as a possible venue for our son coming wedding. Unfortunately, when we approached the gate, the attendant won’t let us in, saying that we can’t enter as we are not as guests of the hotel. We tried to explain our intentions, in vain .. It is sad but we won’t be looking towards this venue any more. It’s already a bad service. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

My favorite hotel I've been to

Jun 28th, 2020

Post Ranch Inn absolutely blew all my expectations away. It's quite expensive so I was hesitant, but it was worth every penny. We stayed in an Ocean House room, upstairs. The views were incredible. During the day we had a clear view of the Pacific Ocean. At night the star gazing was beautiful. You can see the Milky Way and we saw several shooting stars. The service is perfect. We did not eat at the restaurant for dinner, but ordered a charcuterie board to be delivered to our room and it was excellent. We did have breakfast at the restaurant and the views were stunning and food was delicious. There is a fully stocked mini bar in the room as well. The room is also very well appointed. We loved the tub with views out onto the Pacific and huge balcony. If you want to sleep in, I would recommend an eye mask because there are several sky light type of windows that will wake you up early. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. I will definitely be back! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Not quite 5*.... would have give 4.5*

Mar 10th, 2020

We drove from San Francisco to the Post Ranch for a 3 night stay allowing us to explore the area and recharge before continuing our road trip. We followed highway one, the route is absolutely amazing, the scenery out of this world, if you’re a driving enthusiast it’s one of the best roads on earth. Anyway more about the PRI, upon arriving we were welcomed warmly and shown to the restaurant while waiting for our room, the restaurant is out of this world, views to die for with a modern rustic kind of feel and nearly all glass to really exploit the views, we chose burger and fries off the menu which I have to say was really really good, after lunch we went for a little explore, the property is beautiful, every which way you look there’s a postcard picture, it’s quiet, tranquil and everything experienced this far pretty much faultless, then comes the room which I suppose is the disappointment and the reason for not giving 5*. We got shown in and first impressions were good. We had an upper coast and tree view room, there was music playing, the lights set just right, open fire and views from the balcony unreal, we were like wow, and like all nice hotels and we’ve stayed at plenty it’s nice to enjoy the room, so we got changed and thought time to relax. This is where our disappointment started. We found the furniture so uncomfortable, the sofa is ok, unfortunately not big enough to sleep on because we could not get comfortable on the bed, the mattress was very hard and the pillows are too high or too low. We must of seen every hour through the night, you can’t even sit up in bed to read cause the head boards have got a shelf on it with an edge that sticks in your back, and you can’t relax any better in the jacuzzi because of how it’s constructed there’s not really any where to sit, each morning we’d get up look out the window at the views and have a soak in one of the pools and all would be forgiven then struggle to sleep and get comfortable the next evening.... at the end of the day you come to a place like this to relax and unwind and to do so your room needs to be comfortable, yet here I am at 3am in the morning writing this review unable to sleep. The purpose of this review is not to scare people away but to hopefully make the managers spend a night in a room, with a few tweaks this place would be perfect, I’ve no doubt as the sun comes up I’ll forgive you again and give you five stars..... let’s see.
