My hubby and I were on a road trip up to Big Sur for our anniversary. We stayed in San Simeon one night. After much research,,,,and Im a researcher,,,,I decided on this Cavalier Oceanfront Resort. We were coming into the hotel on Oct 30 from Hearst Castle. We were dead tired from the fun day. The guys that work at...

One of the most beautiful rocky oceanfront hotels that is also affordable for an occasional vacation. Hurst Castle is nearby as is the Elephant Seal Rookery that is home to 20,000 elephant seals at various times of the year. A viewing walkway lets you see them up close but safely away. January 15 through February 15 is when most of...

We drove up the coast for our delayed honeymoon and found the views fantastic. The room was comfortable. Even tho we had a disturbing experience with a foreign creature ending up in the bed at 3.30a.m. the staff was very accommodating and apologetic and quickly got us another room. Even with this (now funny) experience, we would consider staying here...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and have never been dissatisfied. I would recommend it anyone. I was pleased to see how pet friendly the hotel is. The staff was very attentive and friendly. I will continue to stay at this hotel every time I am in the area. I really enjoy the nightly fire pits out on...

Don't get me wrong: the place is set up gorgeously, just South of San Simeon Bay, offering sweeping and spectacular views of the Pacific coast. It is also clean, classy, comfortable and has that touch of coziness that the fireplace gives any room. And you'll need the fireplace in the chilly nights by the ocean, even if it's mid-august. It...

Wonderful stay at the Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort in San Simeon, California! Beautiful location. Steps from the ocean. Fire pits are a plus for the chilly October evening or any evening by the ocean. Friendly and helpful staff. Plan to stay there again as soon as we can!

After a long day of driving this was a very nice place to spend the night. The people at the front desk were helpful and nice. There is no air conditioning in the room but just opening the windows cools it down quickly. The room was spacious and clean. We chose a beachfront room with a lovely deck, but unfortunately...

Spectacular view - get a second floor room facing the ocean so you can fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Relax outside on your terrace in rocking chairs or inside in big easy chairs gazing at the ocean. The room is not fancy but they thought of everything - lots of new towels, fluffy bathrobes, mini bar with...

Reservation-less, we pulled in after six and took one of the last beachfront rooms overlooking the Ocean. Although more than we had hoped to spend, it was a real treat to have a direct ocean view and frontage. Could not resist putting on the swimsuit and wading into the chilly water. The room was nicely appointed and the king-sized bed...

What a terrific jewel this hotel is. From the warm and helpful staff to a location that can't be beat and then to top it off, they truly think of everything. I've stayed in higher level (and more expensive) hotels through the years and none of them compared to the overall experience and value I received from staying here. I'm...

“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. ”
