Stayed one night before going to Hearst Castle. The location was perfect - but the room was not. We were in the older section of the hotel The rugs were stained,and the dresser was dusty. The upholstered chairs were so soft that you had to sit on pillows to use the table in between the chairs. The only saving grace... More

We love staying here every chance we get. Especially when we are visiting Hearst Castle just up the road and when we're walking on the beach collecting the heart rocks that is a must. We always stay in the very front ocean view the walks down on the beach are just perfect can't ask for anything more. K❤️F

This hotel was very comfortable. The location was great. The fan on the heater in the room was quite noisy. We had to turn it off when we slept, but then we were able to hear the waves crashing onto the shore which was nice. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was not included like... More

Great hotel to stay at if you are in the area and on a mid budget. We had a king room which was clean and the bed was very comfy (in the pictures it does not look so good!) We tried to upgrade but unfortunately the staff could not help us. I would recommend getting a king room with an... More

Definitely wouldn't stay again. The front desk staff was very friendly, but the room itself was very dark and outdated with a dank smell. The price was really high for accommodations of this quality. There was also no good place to eat close by. We did enjoy the fires on the beach.

This hotel was the best experience I've had while traveling in years! From the maids to the front desk staff made our stay easy and very enjoyable. They are situated right on the coast on a huge piece of property that overlooks the ocean. At night there are outdoor fireplaces that the staff keeps lit with wood throughout the early... More

This is a great place to stay with family. The fire pits are a great amenity. I sat with my teenage son for a couple hours in the evening and I had a lovely time without the competition of electronics. Even my son enjoyed our time at the fire pits.

I have been going here for 30 years, at least twice a year. Always get 2nd floor room, I leave the sliding door open so I can hear the roar of the ocean breaking almost at your feet. You want ocean front.

Have been staying at this property for several years. We like the Executive bldg. which is ocean front - from the second floor we can see and hear the waves breaking on the beach. The evening bonfires are always fun and a nice way to end the day.

We only stayed one night a the Cavalier Best Western during our Central Coast MLK weekend trip. We choose the Cavalier because planned to get up early to photograph the elephant seals at the he Piedras Blancas rookery, on Highway 1 seven miles north of San Simeon. We were also traveling with our two Shiba Inus on this particular weekend.... More
