The Cavalier is just down the road from the Hearst Castle. The hotel is located right on the beach and has several fire pits located around the property facing the ocean which they keep stocked with fire wood. The rooms are slightly dated, but the room was clean and comfortable. We had no problem with the accommodations. The location is the best! There is a walking path above the shore and there is access to the beach. The Cavalier is a great place to stay. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
