For now, don't bother. We were there in September and by now it may have even closed (Oceanfront Building, that is). I spoke with a rep from the new ownership group and he claimed the plan was to raze the building and build a "five star" resort. Let's hope so. It was clear they are spending no money on the... More

We stayed here Labor day Weekend, I have mixed feelings about this hotel. Yes it is outdated and further north than where all the action is taking place. And of course we paid premium prices because of the holiday. But it was a last minute trip we booked on Expedia. The walk is less than a block and then you... More

We were scheduled to come to VA beach for my daughter's soccer tournament. This was one of the hotels that was on the list for teams to choose from. When the tournament was cancelled three days before due to rain, The Cavalier refused to refund our deposit, insisting we pay one full night. I am sure I will visit VA... More

We really enjoyed the beach front suite in here. Trip advisor showed us the right hotel for our vacation trip in Virginia Beach. The room has two balconies and we were two families. Its the right hotel for us with the ocean front room. I still cant forget the wonderful experience that we had.

Got a great deal online for mid-week. Oceanfront room - room was a bit small but the beds were good. Beach and ocean were fantastic. Hotel had chairs and umbrellas for guests. Parking was no problem. We ate lunch and breakfast at the restaurant. It was great - had a club sandwich - tasted like the way they used to,... More

The hotel is located on the northern side of the beach and is not near anything that is within walking distance. The boardwalk starts about 4 blocks away. There is limited parking spaces and the valet service is basically non-existence. Anytime we pulled in, no one was around to park the car. Not all the rooms are oceanfront. The staff... More

Had a most excellent stay on a hot October weekend. Great staff--working very hard despite the uncertain future of the property. VERY CLEAN room. Nice firm bed. Hotel is 1 block from Pacifica, 3 blocks from Taste and 8 blocks from Starbucks making it the PERFECT Va Beach location. We prefer the quiet residential area surrounding the hotel. I hope... More

Great views,but this place is definitely showing its age. It is a shame that previous management did not maintain it. The tear down of the beach front property cannot happen soon enough. The service was adequate, but several staff members were clueless. Restaurant is a joke. Go somewhere nearby to eat your meals. Parking is a big challenge and can... More

Great beachfront location. Sadly, the property is in transition and under new ownersip. Staffing is inadequate and a number of rooms are not habitable. Restaurant and banquet service woeful; the few employees on staff are overwhelmed.

This review is for the Cavalier on the Oceanfront (not the Cavalier on the Hill, which is the 1920s brick building located, well, on the hill :). We stayed here for three nights as part of a military reunion group. Our room (#624) was an oceanview, but very close to the ocean side of the hotel so the view from... More
