In my year of travel I have never experience such horrible and unacceptable accommodations! I felt totally mislead by the online pictures, descriptions and quality of it's rooms and facilities...when arriving the hotel was generally warm..air conditioning was poor but I attributed that to the doors being open. going up to our room...the elevators and floor where our room was...

We stayed at the hotel right by the beach but think it might be torn now by now but they are rebuilding or remold in the other one behind the one on the hill. Seeing... More

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

There is a liquidation sale going on for some of the contents of the Cavalier on the Hill and for this Cavalier hotel as of October 2014. While walking around during the liquidation sale, they let anyone roam around the kitchen. It was... More

The expedia discounted price reflected the room we received. We had ants in the bathroom and the carpet was musty. 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

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

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.
