The hotel was a great pet friendly place, very late check in was accommodated and our room was already assigned and ready and waiting for us. The room was clean and comfy although a carpet replacement to hardfloors is needed that and getting tod of the popcorn ceiling would do wonders and make this an A+ place to stay as...

We had a great room. A king and queen bed and plenty of room. The hotel is right on the ocean with wonderful views. It was a short drive from The Hearst Castle. A few minutes from Cambria which has lovely shops and a great coffee shop.

Convenient location and beautiful view of the ocean, So close you could walk out and be on the ocean. Amazing restaurant! Food was great for dinner and breakfast! Loved the fire pits and the heat pools. Wish we would of had more time there.

In our planning to go to Hearst Castle you have a lot of Hotel/Motels to look at in the San Simeon, Cambria & Cayucos area. They are all close enough and you can pick based on price or view. If I may suggest. If you are focused on a sea view you want to look at this place for sure....

My family enjoy our time spent at the Cavalier resort in San Simeon. We love the fireplaces outside to sit by and watch the sunset! We love the convenience of being able to walk right out to the beach. The services, rooms, and views are amazing!

My family & I were looking for a place to eat with an ocean view & Cavalier didn't disappoint!! Food was great & service was fast and friendly. I would recommend this place if you are on. Highway 1 near Hearst Castle.

We have been coming to the Cavalier for about 25 years. It is unique among Cambria/San Simeon lodging in that its location right along the waterfront is extraordinary. Unlike the inns along Moonstone Beach, the Cavalier does not have a road running between your lodging and the water. The beach is a short descent. The grounds are large. The firepits...

We stayed in an oceanfront unit and spent a small fortune for three nights. We were, indeed, oceanfront, but on the ground floor,the view of the water is obstructed by a hedge. If we choose oceanfront again, I'll want to be sure we're on the second floor. That said, we love this place. The beds is comfortable, the room is...

Just because your reservation in the "ocean front building" does not mean you will have a ocean front room and I paid for a "ocean front room". Very disappointed for the premium price paid....asked for a discount did not get any time of compensation.

If you want a good location to visit the Hurst Castle, the Elephant Seal Beach & Lighthouse this is it. We enjoyed the evening Bon fires, the extra mirrors, the second little bar sink, as well as the ocean view from our room and balcony (which costs more but worth it). However, the mini fridge was so over full of...

“Furniture/Decor needs to be updated. Cleanliness: The room was superficially clean, but we noticed, a lot of things needed 'deep cleaning'. The room had a 'musty smell'. It helped to open the 'ocean' view sliding glass door to air it out. ”

“Amazing views of the ocean, second floor. I could leave my door open and listen to the ocean all night. So peaceful.”

“Ocean front room are only available with 1 king bed and. 2 person max but since the whole property is open to the ocean and in front of the beach you may not need to splurge for 'ocean front' if you are traveling with the family. Many basic rooms have a partial view anyway.”
HGKat, 16 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Room had a weird smell when you first walked in, but pretty much went away. Didn't care for the mold on the bathroom walls, but with being so close to the water maybe that is why.”
