The hotel was very clean and the ocean view is beautiful. The attached restaurant is good with good service. You are sort of in the middle of nowhere near the Hearst Castle so this facility is pricey. The outdoor nightly fire-chimneys are neat and a unique gathering place. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly.

We will very very highly recommend this resort to our daughter. She and her family have 2 kids and 3 dogs and they usually cannot find a fun place to go for a weekend from their home in LA. This Best Western is right on the beach and doggies are welcome in the ground floor walk-out rooms. We loved our... More

Booked this motel because of good TripAdvisor reviews, and so glad we did! Great check-in experience, beautiful, clean, spacious room with nice assortment of toiletries for the taking. We were really impressed with the Keurig coffee maker with a great assortment of coffee and tea. Nice to be able to sit by the fire on the beach. Had a nice... More

This is the best value hotel we have stayed in over many decades of travel in many countries. It is comfortable, clean, welcoming, and right on the beach. It has all the amenities we have not found in several 5 star hotels, like a reasonably priced minibar, coffee/tea making facilities, great views, friendly staff, heated pool, free internet facility in...

Location: Very good proximity to Hearst Castle, as well as otter and other marine life viewing areas, San Simeon Bay/Pier, etc. I paid for an ocean view room, which overlooked the pool and a large, grassy area, with the beach in the distance. Close enough to easily hear the waves crash, probably a couple minutes' walk to the sand. OceanFRONT... More

The Best Western Plus Cavalier Oceanfront Resort was a great find and a great value. We had a king sized room that was well kept. Another party in our group had a king / queen room that was absolutely enormous. The bathroom was clean. Amenities in the room were plentiful. The staff was nice enough to empty the minibar fridge...

We booked a room using our miles (12,000), and we were blown away at the location and service of this hotel. First of all, we got a complimentary breakfast (not continental, but a full one with 3 different choices) including coffee and juice for free! All the staff were super nice (gave us free wine tasting vouchers and information), and... More

Thanks tripadvisors. A good recommendation. Room was a bit dated but was OK and bed was very comfortable. Good location and value for our stop near to Hearst Castle. Restaurant was not too good so perhaps try one of the others nearby.

We decided to stay here after having a problem at another hotel. This hotel was a wonderful surprise. The room was beautiful, top notch with a view of the ocean. Very clean, comfortable. We were not able to enjoy the firepit on the beach because it was rainy, but it would have been nice. So close to Hearst Castle and... More
