The room was great, good nite sleep. The view was gorgeous and we had sun. Nice area for walking and pets. Restaurant had good food and was in walking distance. Drawback no elevator to second floor steep stairs only. So if issues with stairs be sure and ask for downstairs when making reservations. Otherwise would stay here again.

Beautiful room and view, fire put on the beach at sunset and a great breakfast in the restaurant! Conversely, the Ragged Point Inn/Resort in town should be avoided! Paid $100 more and got a twin w/no view and no Wi-Fi. Stay at Cavalier!!!

I stayed here four years ago and loved it. Since then, I have told everyone I know that if they go to Hearst Castle they should stay here. This stay, however, was extremely disappointing. I paid top dollar for an premium king oceanfront room, which per the hotel's own description is "our most deluxe accommodations" where I could "see the...

We have stayed here several times over the years, but at one point, we felt the room was getting a little tired and the carpeting needed replacing, so we started staying somewhere else. This past weekend, we gave the Cavalier another chance and we were more than greatly pleased. The same great ocean view (Room 275 upstairs is about as...

Stayed 3 nites in one of the ocean view rooms and the view was outstanding. The room Was large with a balcony where you sit and enjoy the ocean and see a whale every now And then. They have a restaurant but breakfast is not included in rates. Close to Hearst castle and. The elephant seals.

This was such a lovely place to stay and the views were stunning! Pet friendly! We appreciated the 2 comfortable chairs in the standard room. Excellent amenities, even kite anchors! We also liked the onsite restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed our latest visit to the Cavalier Inn. No longer a Best Western, the transition was seamless. The gym equipment is brand new, complete with spongy safety flooring and fluffy white towels are supplied. The oceanfront location is amazing and incomparable for the area. The staff is wonderful and the restaurant is great, too. The fireplace is a...

Stayed just for 1 night, reception was quick, room is big and clean. And the hotel is directly on the beach with great views. Saw a whale just of the coast!! Free parking and excellent free wifi. Shower is a little old but has ok pressure and is hot. The only bad thing is the fan in the bathroom is...

We stayed at the Oceanfront Resort while visiting nearby Hearst Castle. Our room was large and comfortable and the bed has to be one of the best. We ate at the restaurant and the hamburger has to be tasted to be believed. I can to recommend the oceanfront resort highly enough.

This location is a triple crown winner...location, amenities, and staff. Walk out of your room and there right before you is the magnificent Pacific Ocean. It will lull you to sleep after a day of play and will gentle wake you the next morning. Walk to the restaurant for breakfast and their delicious coffee will complete your wake up routine....
