We have stayed at the Cavalier for the past two years for the fourth of July. We only need one night due to the proximity we live to VA Beach but don’t like to make the drive so late at night and enjoy making a small family trip to the beach out of the holiday. The Cavalier is one of the few places that allows us only one night, and I have been told its under new management so I hope that this continues. Last year we stayed in an oceanfront room because we thought we might have to watch the fireworks from the hotel room due to our small child, however he stayed awake and we enjoyed the fireworks on the beach. Please note that you can however see the fireworks fine from an ocean front room balcony. The hotel is an older hotel, but that also adds to the charm. We enjoyed our stay in your standard double room. This year I decided to save a little money and requested to stay at the Cavalier on the Hill, which is not open year round. The Cavalier on the hill, while is not the Hilton, has such charm and history to it that I really enjoy it better. The room was a superior double, which is still basically your standard double, I was told it might have a little more square footage than the basic, but the décor is supposed to be different in the superior. We have a large family we squeeze into one room so I cannot speak for the extra space, but found the room a perfect fit for one evening on a holiday week. I enjoy the hotel on the hill more due to less foot traffic; it also has more of the old charm and décor that made this place such a hit in the early 1900’s when it first opened. The hill offers a large indoor pool, which many people do not take the time to find so it’s never as packed as the outside pool oceanfront. The staff are very friendly, and accommodating as well. If we go back next year I will be making reservations at the Cavalier again. Last year on the Fourth they hosted a mini party on the lawn before the fireworks with a moon bounce, rock wall and other activities for kids that we were sad they did not repeat again this year, but maybe it will return in the future. I recommend the Cavalier for your stay at North VA Beach.
