Excellent customer service, scenery and prices! We stopped off season (February 2015) spur of the moment while riding our Harley on Highway 1 from Nebraska and were given a room with an ocean view for a discounted price! The sunset was breath-taking and the fire-pits were an added bonus along with the ability to order breakfast right to our room... More

Stayed in one of the Terrace rooms that are right oh the cliff. What an amazing view! The balcony has comfy rocking chairs. Sat there with a glass of wine and watched the sunset. Fell asleep to the sound of the ocean waves outside our room....best nights sleep I've had in ages. Nice big soaking type tub. Great place to... More

I took my family and boyfriend to this hotel for a trip to Hearst Castle. It's right off the beach and the rooms were great! My only complaint would be the walls seem to be thin so you kind of feel like your privacy may not be 100% secure. The room was great with a little fireplace, sitting area in... More

My wife and I stayed here 10 years ago and noticed a block of rooms right on the oceanfront,so this time we got one of those rooms. The patio was dirty ie cigarette butts ,empty beer bottle and somebody had started a fire in the planter and no one had fixed it. The king bed had a ridge in it,... More

This property is so nice. We stayed in an Oceanview, Fireplace, King Bed room. The room was large, decorated nicely and very clean. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. They even had guest laundry available and reasonably priced and clean. The staff helped us make reservations for Hearst Castle for the next day. We sat on the balcony... More

I've driven through San Simeon many times but this was the first time I stopped to take in more of the beauty. This hotel is right on the beach with easy access when the tide is out. The rooms are very nicely decorated with comfy beds. It is nice to hear the ocean while drifting off to sleep. The only... More

I am so glad I stayed at the Best Western + Cavalier in San Simeon. We paid for an upgraded room with view and it couldn't have been better. We saw dolphins, sea lions, pelicans, and other birds nearly every morning. You are very close to Cambria and the Hearst Castle which is a plus. The food at the restaurant... More

Spent 3 days in the beach front room in San Simeon. Very nice sunset views and location is close to Cambria and Hearst Castle; we took advantage of both. While it was foggy in San Simeon, the Hearst Castle was nice and sunny above the clouds. Stayed for a couple of tours, then went back down the hill to enjoy... More
