Not to sound snobby but we are definitely not Best Western people...in fact, I don't think I've stayed in a Best Western since I was a small child back in the mid-80s. We usually stay at Hilton properties but during out trip last summer up the coast of CA, there weren't a ton of options in the Cambria area so... More

What an amazing experience! We only stayed one night and did NOT want t leave! The staff was amazing, helpful, courteous and went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Room service was fantastic, fast and the food was wonderful. Our view was breathtaking and it felt like we were right on the ocean. Check out was a... More

Wonderful ocean view and great restaurant...This being said that is where it stops.. Our "Ocean View" room was far below our expectations of comfort and clenliness.. The carpets were very smelly and stained and the drapes were the same.. Our "non-smoking room"smelled like the campfire was inside.. The bed was fair but the pillows were well used and smelled.. The... More

We always stay here after our bike ride from Carmel. It's clean and the bed is very comfortable. We always try to get the king room overlooking the pool area. They always have two fires going down by the beach at night where one can sit and relax.

This is a well-maintained older hotel with a beautiful oceanfront location. The level of service is good, but I'm baffled by the check-in policy. No guests were given access to their rooms until the official check-in time. The result was a number of guests sitting around and standing outside the lobby and then forming a long line at the desk... More

Excellent hotel stay. Awesome ocean front location. Fantastic rooms with 4 star amenities. Comfy beds, large patios, fireplace, sitting area & great bathroom. Couldn't ask for more. We will definitely be back. 😊

Hotels are like a box of chocolates... you never know what the inside will be like. I have found that the brand name means a lot, and in this case, the entire hotel experience was one of the best ever! We had a room on the ground floor, and it was a short stroll to the wonderful fire pit overlooking... More

Very comfortable room with all the amenities we needed. The only thing we would have liked would have been a microwave. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious - the fireplace and easy chairs were a lovely addition for a chilly evening. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. Although we didn't really use them, there... More

The Cavalier Resort is decidedly above average when it comes to incorporating the "personal touch" in all that they do to serve their customers. Additionally, all amenities at this hotel met or exceeded our expectations during our entire stay.
