When i worked as a labor nurse in las vegas for 14 yrs this was hands down my fav hotel of all time mind you i wasnt rich and am now disabled i believe charges must have gone up due to renivation. Every room was great fireplaces in each room great spa i never did go in the pool but it looked great at night on the clifs bonfires are lit and people gather for wine and combo this hotel was soooooo reasonable and worked with me on everythink all the ocean viiew rooms rock an in the day watch seals otters and search in the tide pool the resturant was fantastic not to fancy just good food priced well and lots of it i have never state in the wing closest to the water but all view rooms.are great staff was great 2 min its from from hearst castle and a couple of mins from cambria. I love this hotel im in ny but if i ever have the money i.will visit again i have been there four times only problem i dont want to many many people to know about it its so peaceful

This hotel was very nice. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean. There was a fireplace in the room and they supplied you with wood as well as a fire starter and matches. The beds were very comfortable. We slept with the slider partially open and there were no bugs, the sound of the ocean was relaxing. The bath towels were larger than most and new, the bathrobes could have been replaced, there were tattered along the edges but other than that I can't find anything that wasn't satisfactory.

Love this place to rest and relax and restore! The beach, fire pits on the bluff and fireplaces in the rooms make it especially romantic and the people are just awesome. Diva Day Spa Massages are the best!

We celabrated our 1st Weddung Anniversary at the hotel in 1983. We have been going ever since. I have seen so many updates and changes in the pass 30 years. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. We love the fact that we can bring our dogs with us to enjoy the week end with us. The cost is well worth the beautiful setting. The wonderful fire pits are the best. We have meet other travelers while enjoying the fire.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but the ones closest to the Ocean are awesome.

We cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We went to Hearst Castle and wanted to stay nearby as do most of the guests I'm sure. From the minute we checked in we felt like we found the perfect spot. The grounds are gorgeous and right on the ocean. The fire pits were lit at 8pm and were a delight. The room was absolutely well appointed and I am going to list all the amenities I can think of and I'm sure I'll forget a couple.

There was not one thing we could have needed that was not supplied.
We really didn't want to leave.

The restaurant food was great although the waitress was a bit cranky.

On checkout there was a bowl of apples if we wanted one.

Thank you so very much for such a great stay.

Beds were uncomfortable and the smell of wood burning fires were terrible. The view was fantastic. We were not told that there was a breakfast in the morning, so I can not comment about the breakfast.

The BW Cavalier exceeds at customer service. Whether it is at the Front Desk, maintenance or the Restaurant. The beds are comfy, the room is clean and the entire property is well maintained. Good job Cavalier...you are doing it right!
