My wife and I stay here often. We love this location because it's so dog friendly. Miles of beach and hiking paths. You can be as social as you want at the evening fire-pits or spend your time alone, walking on the beach. If you really want to treat yourself, get a room in the Ocean front building. The staff...

We just finished a three night stay at the Cavalier Oceanfront Resort and it was very pleasant. We had an Oceanfront Deluxe King on the 2nd floor. It was as close to sleeping on the beach as you can safely get. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. The wait staff at the restaurant...

Where else can you spend the night atop a bluff overlooking the Pacific with a grassy area between you and the shore that your dogs (allowed in ALL rooms I believe) will adore. This is a unique property.and a place we like to return to just to enjoy the property. The pool and jacuzzi were heated to an excellent temperature...

We arrived in time to watch the sunset by the Cavalier's oceanfront fire pit. The room was comfortable and even had a wood burning fireplace. We enjoyed the restaurant, with its ocean view, for dinner and breakfast. My pacific snapper was delicious.

We have stayed here in the past when it was Best Western Plus, and it is still as good as ever. Lovely room with a fireplace, Adirondack chairs are outside on a small patio with a view of the ocean & walking paths. Everything you would need in a room, comfy bed, refrigerator, coffee maker, nice bathroom and friendly desk...

We stayed here for one night on a trip down the California coast and wished we had time to stay longer. The resort staff at check in were great and we were granted our room request of top floor with ocean views. The room was clean, big and the balcony overlooking the water was great. Arriving late after a long...

Had a great weekend at this hotel. The staff was very friendly. They have a private beach for guests to walk along. There are fire pits that are lit at night that you can sit around as well as fireplaces in the rooms.

Not only was our room in a great location with a beautiful ocean view but the entire staff was very accommodating. We did a late tour at Hearst Castle and when we returned the restaurant still sat us and provided great food and great service even though it was close to closing time. Alex at the front desk was very...

We stayed here 2 nights in an Ocean Front room with a balcony. The standard of accommodation was excellent and the view magnificent. In the evening they light fire pits in the grounds and people sit around and chat. It is close to the small town of Cambria which is worth a visit and close to Hearst Castle and the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very close to Hearst castle which was great after driving up several hours from LA. Rooms were very clean and nice. Staff was very friendly. Enjoyed sitting by the fire overlooking the beach to watch the sunset. Restaurant was terrific. Food was delicious and the wait staff was exceptional, for breakfast and dinner. Would definitely recommend...

“Buy better toilet paper. It was rough and thin. Put screens on sliders. Bathroom could be painted fresh. Maybe take off brown bedspread and just use white duvets or sheets, so they can be wash after every visit. Microwaves would be nice. Maybe BBQ for use .”

“This motel is not "elegant", it's a "beach bungalow" type location. The rooms are clean and plain. There is a fireplace, fridge and mini bar. Most rooms have a patio and in the oceanfront rooms you can spend your entire stay just relaxing on it. ”
