We recently stayed at the Cavalier for 2 nights during our honeymoon road trip. I booked using booking.com and mentioned it was our honeymoon, when we arrived there was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting. The hotel and surroundings are just gorgeous, fire pits lit at night and a lovely warm hot tub. Our room was like a suite with...

This place is in the perfect location right a short walk to the beach. Rooms were clean, adequately appointed and people very nice. 10 minutes from Hearst Castle and a good value. Not a lot of frills but they deliver what they promise.

When including this hotel in our itinerary, our travel agent was almost apologetic. We were delighted! OK, only a one night stop. There is nothing there apart from a lovely beach, but we had a great room , enjoyed excellent dinner and breakfast and were on the spot to visit Hearst Castle. In the evening they light fires on the...

We stayed for one night when travelling highway 1 north to san Francisco. The hotel has excellent and quiet rooms, a very decent restaurant for breakfast and dinner and a great view at the beach, especially at sunset. All in all very enjoyable, however not exactly the cheapest place around.

After relocating from our previously booked hotel across the street (San Simeon Lodge - see previous review) we were pleased to find the rooms clean and well equipped. Unfortunately, the A/C was nonexistent and the room was stuffy and hot overnight. Even with windows open we got little breeze. The beach is nice and there is a firepit blazing at...

The best hotel on the beach just a few miles from Hearst Castle. Beautiful and tastefully decorated. Great for families with the fire pit and a romantic get-away! Loved the fireplace in the room. Just a perfect setting and stop over on Highway 1 on the California coast.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay by the ocean. We arrived one hour before sunset to find out our room had been upgraded. Then we made our way to the beach and saw a spectacular whale display. This was followed up by an amazing sunset. We can't say enough about this wonderful hotel.

We just finished our 4 night stay at the Cavalier. The rooms and location are very nice, BUT... They have wood burning fireplaces and one night someone started a fire and 2 fire engines had to show. The building was evacuated and my wife saw extensive smoke. I find it very.odd that this place does not have microwaves, as I...

We stumbled upon this place by luck; right off of CA route 1 what a nice location. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and big. We only stayed for one night at this location but wish we stayed longer. The cliffs off the ocean where the hotel is situated are impressive. The hotel lights fire pits along these...

“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. ”
