We had a nice stay at the Cavalier. Although it is an older hotel, it has been maintained well and was clean and comfortable. Best feature is the location, right on the water. There are 3 Fire-Pits down near the beach, and they light nightly 'campfires' where you can sit and watch the sunset, have a bottle of wine, and meet your fellow guests - we met people from Arizona and Oregon and had some interesting talks about travel and living in different sections of the country. People were toasting marshmallows, and at one of the fires a trio of women were singing in perfect harmony! Very enjoyable.
There is a restaurant on the premises where we had breakfast (very well prepared and delicious), but for lunch or dinner you might want to drive to nearby Cambria where there are several nice places and a good pizzeria (JJ's). There is also a liquor store where you can buy the aforementioned bottle of wine;)
Nice place, and the layout and pool area gave me a feeling of nostalgia for when I was a kid and used to go to this kind of motel with my parents.
