Lucia Lodge seeing spike in business following release of ‘Ratched’


LUCIA, Calif. (KION) If you've watched Netflix's "Ratched," you've seen quite a few scenes filmed here on the Central Coast.

One of the most notable locations, is the Lucia Lodge. In the show, a sign solely reading "motel" sits beside the lodge overlooking the Big Sur coastline.

The main character, nurse Midred Ratched, played by Sarah Paulson begins living in the motel, as she works as a demented employee at a mental hospital.

Lodge officials tell us they have noticed a spike in bookings since its cameo on the show. They also now receive frequent questions about the show from visitors driving through.

Fun fact: the lodge is rumored to be haunted. So if you want to get your Halloween kicks, this may be the place to check out if you haven't already.
