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

We planned a quick weekend trip to visit Hearst Castle and decided to spend the night at this hotel. We were traveling as two couples and both booked Ocean View King Rooms with fireplaces - I think rooms 258 and 259. Our friends had never been before and really enjoyed the setting. At check-in the staff were so helpful and... More

My husband and I used to routinely stay at the Best Western Cavalier Inn in San Simeon each 4th of July for 4-5 days with another couple. Although the rooms are clean, they are nothing special and don't seem to have been paraded in any way in years and years, but they do have a small patio near the beach... More

The hotel sits on property overlooking Pacific Ocean - view is amazing. Just steps to beach. Room is cozy with fireplace and you have ocean breeze. The crashing of waves during night were wonderful. Hotel is dog friendly, any size and no extra charge. The room service was great, again no extra charge. The staff at the hotel is welcoming... More

Our room had an oceanfront view, complete with rocking chairs on our patio, we heard the peaceful waves as they crashed upon the shore, it was beyond relaxing. The fireplace complete with wood chips make the room very inviting and romantic. The property offers "chimeneas" with chairs and is a great place to view the sunset, we just sat there... More
