Big Sur hotels

So was thinking of spending 2 nights in Big Sur. Took a look at the hotels and they are absolutely outrageous.

Any suggestions for staying in or around this area at a reasonable cost? I'm not going to spend $800 a night.

The cabins have queen beds and linens.

I guess the question is if you really want to stay in Big Sur or if you are ok with staying nearby (Cambria, Carmel) which offer much more reasonable options. I went there several times without spending the night right there, and found day trips are a very good option. If you need to be there, the cabins mentioned are great, but are often booked well in advance.

Cambria was a haul. Carmel looks like a good option or maybe Monterey (lots of reasonable hotel options).

I like the Hyatt Highlands Inn. It's at the north end of Big Sur. Some of the rooms have great views of the water as does the public space.

Thanks. Amazingly, Hyatt had C&P availability with an Ocean View King. 12,500 points + $150, truly amazing.

Any idea why TripAdvisor has it ranked kind of low though:

Carmel Hyatt Highlands is a great hotel. rooms are cabin style ( not real
Cabins) with a fireplace and great views.
Some complain about the price and some rooms are a little tired and the noise of the route (just ask for a room high up) but it's a very special place. At night is very peaceful and you can smell the wood burning. I would definitely recommend it.

Big Sur hotels

Highlands Inn is about 30 minutes drive to big sur. We love big sur bakery and they take reservations on their website with SeatMe platform. Otherwise we use open table for other dining. Enjoy highlands inn - we stay there whenever we are in Carmel region.
