It was the best of times at the Sea Gull Inn...it was the worst of times at the Cavalier Oceanfront. We chose the Cavalier hotel for the 2nd half of our 6-night VA Beach vacation based on a 3rd-night free special on a Virginia travel website. Although the Cavalier was higher-priced than our usual choices, the special put it within... More

While walking around during the liquidation sale, they let anyone roam around the kitchen. It was... More

There were large noisy fans in the hall for days without any explanation from the staff when we enquired. There is a large outdoor hotel pool but it is not heated and too cool for anyone's comfort. Also, it seems... More

On our second visit, we had to change rooms twice, the first time because the air conditioner was broken and stuck on full blast - the room felt like a... More

Our room and bed were comfortable, the AC worked great, we had chairs on our balcony to enjoy, and enjoyed our jetted tub (More suitable for... More

Cavalier location is good north from the boardwalk but only a few blocks away so the br8ght lights and noise are lower here. Room on 8 the was quiet but Mold smell. They gave us a new room no problems. Many friendly professional employees.

When we planned our vacation to the beach, we knew we wanted to stay at The Cavalier. We have always had a pleasant visit their over the years. It is outdated, but I had no real complaints during our visit there this week. Staff was extremely pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was ok, but it was free. Met some... More
