This is an older hotel right on the beach that could use some updating. The staff in our experience was very friendly and there was a decent adult and kid pool on the premises. My biggest complaint was the housekeeping. When we checked in on Friday to stay for the weekend we were told housekeeping is off on Saturdays. We... More

My wife and I have been coming here for 10 years and she has been coming with her family since the 60s. The motel is dated but very clean and the location is second to none. We have stayed in all of the different types of rooms they offer and they have something for everyone. Economy rooms, pool sides, two... More

Absolutely beautiful waterfront views....quiet and peaceful yet close to everything! A bit of a walk from the car,but I am handicapped and it was doable! Looking forward to my next stay there! Very nice staff!

Its retro, its clean, and its right on the beach. I stayed in October last year and got a wonderful rate. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I have also told my friends about it as well. Its close to everything I could want.....restaurants, the outlets...just a wonderful place to stay. I highly recommend it!!!

Took the kids here for a few nights based on a local recommendation. It is one of those hold outs from the 50s. Classic motel U shape with direct beach front access. The pool wasn't in yet but the kids enjoyed the playground and play space. The rooms are definitely dated but were spacious and adequate. The kitchen was well... More

My first visit to N.C and the Cavalier, I loved them both! The Cavalier was the perfect place for our one week stay, the people were very friendly and helpful. The cottage had plenty of space, a nice living room, kitchen, dinning table, even a back porch area we could stand out and enjoy the evenings and early mornings. It... More

Stayed here with my mother for the second time at the end of March for 3 nights before checking into our cottage on Hatteras. This stay was even better than the first time! We had an oceanfront efficiency, which was a true bargain compared to the prices of other oceanfront hotels in the area. This made a great base camp... More

Right on the beach, older motel with friendly family owned atmosphere. No bugs, clean, and great price. Beautiful ocean view from my ocean front. We had a full kitchen which saved us some money on eating out. Plates, pots, pans, glasses, and silverware are furnished. Which I was surprised about that. I Can't complain about anything. If they would let... More

The Cavalier Motel is in a great location and convenient to most everything. We stay here every October in one of the 2 bedroom cottage units. We love the fact that the cottage units are pet friendly. We don't travel with our dogs, so a non pet friendly Motel is a deal breaker. The beach behind the motel is very... More
