You don't need to pony up the dough for a room at the expensive Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, Calif. to enjoy the beautiful coastal view and a sunset serenade from a Scottish bag piper at dusk.

We hit up the hotel's Lobby Lounge on Saturday night where vacationing golfers and their families gathered around one of the four fire pits on the back terrace. Here you can take in the killer views of the Pacific Ocean and the second hole of the Links at Spanish Bay.

The Lobby Lounge serves cocktails and appetizers and has an extensive wine list (which is to be expected in this ritzy enclave of the Monterey Peninsula.)

As for the bag piper, he starts on the hills at 6:15pm (in the summer) and winds his way back up to the terrace as the sunsets.

While you can have this experience without staying overnight (rooms start at around $565 a night), you will have to pay the $9.25 fee to enter the 17-mile Drive of which Spanish Bay is a part. But self-parking is totally free which compared to the parking fees, both self and valet, that most hotels charge, this is not a bad deal.
