I didn't feel that the office staff followed through on reserving our 2nd night and we had to move to another room with a very short notice and we were not compensated for the inconvenience of their error.

Everyone was very pleasant. The location was great. My recommendation to anyone staying here is to request a second floor room. They don't have A/C and we would have loved to sleep with the sliders open allowing the crashing waves to lull us to sleep. But since we were on the first floor, that wasn't an option!

we always enjoy staying at the Cavalier San Simeon. It is always well maintained and the staff is always helpful. It is a place you can sit & watch the ocean & completely relax OR you can drive a short distance for visit to Hearst Castle OR wine tasting.

We stayed for one night on our journey from San Francisco to LA. We enjoyed our night here and would recommend this hotel, though our stay would have been enhanced if breakfast was included in the room rate. Also, the room was very hot at night. Location: Right on the beach; wide expanse of sand. Fire pits on lawn above... More

We stayed at this hotel for our Honeymoon in the summer of 2014 and again this summer for our first anniversary. It was beautiful, relaxing, and thoroughly enjoyable both times and we've already booked for next summer! Our room was OCEANFRONT and the sound of the ocean is the best!

We really enjoyed our 2 nights here. The rooms were dated but clean. We didn't have a room with a view but it was only a few steps to the bluff. We saw whales and dolphins from there. The view, especially the sunset was beautiful. We also appreciated the three fire pits they lit every night. We met people from... More

This hotel (which is more of a motel) is as close to the ocean as you can get - others in the area will say ocean view but are on the other side of US 1 or otherwise not as close. The hotel is on a relatively small bluff, so its not exactly beachfront - but there are a couple... More

We loved our visit here. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathroom and tub were very clean! The bed was comfortable. The sitting area furniture is looking a little worn, but it was comfortable. There is no A/C in the rooms which should be noted for anyone who prefers A/C. It was warm in our room when we arrived -... More

We stayed here after visiting Hearst Castle. While the room was a bit outdated, I was very happy with our stay. We stayed ground level facing the pool. The walk to the ocean was worth the stay! The room was clean and the bathroom was great. We did not eat at the restaurant but heard other people say it was... More

It's the best Best Western. There are many other Best Westerns. There are even other motels and inn's, but this is the best Best Western I've ever been in. The mini bar is pretty cheap too. the pools are pretty outdate, but the quality of my room and the location were what really did it for me.
