I love visiting San Simeon and Cavalier Inn is almost always where I stay. I have a dog, and their rooms are dog-friendly, which is wonderful. They provided me with a little dog towel and poop bags in a little holder as a welcome doggie gift. Even if the pooch isn't on the trip with me, I often stay here... More

For past 10 years we visit yearly for the beauty of the area. We only stay BW+ at Cavalier for the ocean front property, fire pits, and high quality of hotel. When staying in San Simeon/Cambria we would not choose any other hotel.

Loved our stay. It is hard to find such a great view and nice room at such a reasonable price. No complimentary breakfast but there is a restaurant on the property. They also have a nice pools, whirlpool, laundry facility, fire pit on sand. Friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend.

This hotel turned out to be a real gem. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to fellow travelers. The room and service was excellent as was the location. The restaurant was the only disappointing aspect which I'm not too sure is actually associated with the hotel.

We were driving the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to San Frncisco and also wanted to visit the Hearst mansion at San Simeon. Cavalier Ocean Front resort is in a truly sensational location just off the PCH and easy to find with good parking. And it really is right on the ocean front. We had magnificent views from our...

Spent Labor day weekend in San Simeon. The staff and hotel were very helpful with all our needs. The beach and scenery were unbelievable. I was there with my best friend on a girls trip. Met a nice man named Ken the last day we were leaving. He was there with his friend who drove a orange Harley. Would like... More

Stayed Thursday and Friday last weekend on a whim - no reservations. The staff was very friendly and the grounds in excellent condition. The site is located between Hearst Castle and Cambria on the ocean side with groomed walkways to the beach. The view is pristine California coast that included whales jumping just off shore. The hotel has set three... More

This is an excellent place to end a casual day of meandering south down the PCH. Second floor rooms offer excellent views of the pounding surf. Pet friendly. Good beach for walking and outdoor fire pits kill the chill after their gorgeous sunsets. Restaurant next door was surprisingly good. Liquor store conveniently located across the street.

Not much in this area, so this was a nice surprise. We had a room facing the ocean side. It was on the lower level and the view was partially blocked by the pool. Had a nice little patio to sit out and just listen to the waves crashing. In the evening they light up several fire pits between the... More
