My husband and I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend visiting Hearst Castle. We both agreed that it was really the hotel that made the weekend! This is not your ordinary Best Western - it is truly a cut above. We had an Oceanfront room on the second story with a fireplace and private balcony. There is a small patch of... More

Considering the dodgey, inconsistent reviews of the available places to stay in Cambria, driving an extra 5 minutes makes this Best Western an excellent alternative. If you’re going to see Hearst’s Castle, its closer than staying in Cambria. And its just a short drive if you want to go back to the little town of Cambria for its shopping and... More

We travel to the Central CA coast several times a year and stay routinely at this Best Western PLUS Cavalier Resort because it is in a beautiful setting with great accommodations and dog friendly. Restraunts in the area are great as is access to the beach.

I couldn't review online prior to booking the room because signal is very unstable in the road. We called twice, and booked in person. They forgot to mention that there was not air conditioner in the room until after we paid and there was no time to cancel. Outside, the hotel looks Ok, great location, amazing view, front ocean. The... More

This is our favorite hotel to stay at when we visit Cambria. In fact, we are planning our wedding, and our honeymoon will be spent at Cavalier Resort. Our room had a great view, the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever slept in, and great service. Love this hotel!

We enjoy the Cavalier when traveling with our dogs - doggie towels and travel "poop bags" are just 2 of the nice things they provide for our pets. Walking lanes, a beautiful view and beach, comfortable lodging, outdoor fireplaces, and convenient access to the Central Coast wineries make this an ideal choice for us and our pooch-loving friends when enjoying...

I book this motel every year not for me but for my two dogs. We have a wonderful pet friendly vacation. They can run on the beach. The fireplaces are wonderful for those chilly evenings. The refrigerators great for keeping the picnic items fresh. Pick up stations a great addition. Give your pets a vacation of a lifetime! Thank you... More

Hotel was located on a beautiful scenery. Right beside the beach. There were tons of sea life we could spot right beside the shore. Loved that the hotel was pet friendly, that it had a trail for me to walk my dog at. Rooms were nice. We had the room with the 3 beds. My husband and I had the... More

When booking a hotel room on-line, you're often left wondering if you made the right decision. From the moment we walked into our room, we knew we had made the right decision. With an amazing view of the ocean, we watched dolphins frolic every afternoon, we enjoyed a fireplace in our room while the hotel also had 3 large outdoor... More

We visited Hearst Castle in San Simeon last month during our California Hwy #1 road trip. We needed an overnight stay so we could catch the first morning tour. We picked Best Western because it's the more "well-known" chain among the very few inns and motels in San Simeon. I won't consider this as a "Resort" as its name indicates.... More
