My family has stayed at the old Cavalier hotel twice, the first time was wonderful and we couldn't wait to come again, unfortunately the second time was a disappointing experience. 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

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Cavalier for 4 nights in August 2014. We had an oceanfront room with a king size bed and a balcony overlooking the beach on the 5th floor. 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 It is outdated, but I had no real complaints during our visit there this week.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

We stayed for 3 nights in august. We enjoyed the location, right on the beach and although we stayed on the first floor with no balcony and just a little ocean view we didnt mind it, very close to the main door and pool. It was quiet. Shower curtain was in really bad condition but they replaced as soon as... More

You get what you pay for - less expensive than most other hotels on the beach and probably not as nice. As others said, the furniture is pretty dated. Had to ask for a 2nd set of towels. All the rooms have a view of the beach at least vs other hotels. The only free parking is across the street... More
