I was very pleasantly surprised by the Best Western Plus Cavalier, where I stayed for one night last week on my coastal driving trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The room was very comfortable and well equipped, with a nice ocean front patio that I enjoyed immensely. I would have preferred wooden rocking chairs on the terraces to the... More

This was a great place to stay. Clean, friendly, on the beach. I would stay there again. It was a little pricey, but not considering it was right on the beach. We went to Hearst Castle and this place was super close and had fire pits on the beach. You are allowed to take beer on the beach too.

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... More

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... More

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.

Hotel provides dog towels, dog shets, robes for humans :) and plenty of firewood and coffee. Room service is prompt. We always get a bottle of champagne as we visit Cambria for... More

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... More

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.
