The most beautiful hotel we've ever stayed in, if you come to Big Sur you must stay at Post Ranch Inn. The hospitality was top notch. Meals at Sierra Mar were delectable. The property is gorgeous. You will always remember your stay here if you visit, unforgettable!

If you stay here, do yourself a favor and try not to think to much about the cost the whole time. It is certainly a splurge, but at the end of the day, this is still a hotel and there's no way that everything will be perfect. Read less
