The Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort in San Simeon is a gem on the central CA coast - quiet, well appointed and meticulously cared for. This is a lovely location on the quieter part of the Central California coastline - away from crowds and attractions. Windswept beauty. We booked a regular room directly with the hotel, and when we arrived... More

I love to stay here, for the sound of the surf, for the courteous service and for the lovely fire pits out on the bluff at night. The great beds and fantastic linens. For always having a bottle of champange chilling in the room upon arrival. It is comfortable and dog friendly. Also close to Hurst Castle and the elephant... More

On our continued journey down the California Coast we stopped in San Simeon at the Best Western Cavalier. This was a surprise stop for my wife. I was hoping that it would be a nice place, especially after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor. Well it was great. It is always nice, but rare to stay at a hotel... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon road trip, and the team were great and we found champagne in our room. We ate at the cavalier restaurant one night, great food, but watch out the portions are huge, if we'd have known we wouldn't have ordered a starter, yummy though, and great breakfasts too. Do check out the Hearst winery in... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a trip down the coast. We specifically stayed in San Simeon in order to visit Hearst Castle. We arrived in the dead of night but found our room ready for us. The room was large, comfortable and well equipped. Whilst our room did not front the beach we could still hear... More

We booked it based on the TA reviews when we were looking for a place to spend a night during our trip from SF to LA. The room was clean and roomy enough, but our request for ocean view sent with the reservation 2 months earlier was not met. The receptionist told us that the full ocean view rooms are... More
