In today's complex world, companies that only do it only one way - "their way" - will be left behind, as customers seek out more flexibility, choice, and control over their buying experience. How many of us have seen customers now waiting in line to scan their own groceries in stores where this is now an option? We also expect... More

We only stayed here one night while visiting the Hearst Castle and the place was completely fogged in but I had a great time here. We had a room on the beach with a deck, the room had no air-conditioned but you could leave the windows and sliding glass door open with no bugs to worry about. It was great... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Great location on the beach and had fun chatting to other guests next to the beachside fire pits. Rooms very comforable. Easy access to Hearst Castle. Would recommend to others and would stay here again.

My wife and I spent 3 days (2 nights) at the Cavalier Inn celebrating our anniversary, what a great decision! The staff is exemplary, from the waiters at the wonderful restaurant to the cleaning crew. We were pampered with an ocean-front room with a luxurious king-bed, the sound of the surf lulled us to sleep each evening while we watched... More

WOW... I never thought I would be giving 4 stars to a Best Western...this place more than earned it...almost 5 stars. This has to be one of the most romantic places we've ever stayed at on the West Coast. After visiting Hearst Castle, we decided to stay in the area one more night before driving up the Pacific Coast Highway... More

I wanted to like this hotel - it was the top reviewed hotel in a perfect location close to Hearst Castle. The rooms though were tired, we had ants in the bathroom which meant it unpleasant to use. For the money - and we booked through an Expedia secret deal - it was expensive and not good value.

My wife and I spent a Saturday night here celebrating a friend's 75th birthday. This was a hotel that my friend and her significant other retreat to whenever they have some occasion to celebrate. They asked us to join them on this trip. Our check-in was efficient, professional, and the front-end clerks were very friendly. We found our second story... More

We travelled from San Francisco to San Simeon using Route 1 all the way. Having toured Hearst Castle we then stayed overnight at the Best Western Oceanfront Resort. Checkin was welcoming and informative. Rooms were just what we needed, Sizable, very clean and great views and noise from the sea. A great stay and highly recommended.

Located near to Hearst Castle on the Pacific Coast Highway, this made a convenient overnight stop on our journey. Our room was annexed from the main / reception area. We were given an upgrade for our one night stay. Our room opened up onto a beach / common area where fire pits were set up. The room was clean and... More
