We have stayed at the Cavelier before and it is a wonderful place to stay. They are very helpful and the surroundings are very nice. The beach is very fun and the kids love collecting shells and rocks here.

The Best Western PLUS Cavalier Oceanfront Resort was a fabulous 1 night stay for us in San Simeon, CA. We traveled there during our 2 week road trip up the coast of California to see the Hearst Castle. From the extremely hospitable and helpful staff of the hotel to the delicious restaurant dishes, outdoor beach-side fireplaces, and immaculately clean and comfortable accommodations, we had a perfect overnight at this hotel. Parking and directions to the hotel were a cinch. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Very kind and attentive staff. Clean room, super comfy bed. Highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful room and great location for taking little side trips during the day to Cambria, Morro Bay, the wine country, and the beach where all the giant elephant seals hang out. We also enjoyed going to the Hearst Ranch to sample wines. Hotel is right on the ocean so enjoying the sound of the waves was wonderful.

Stayed 3 nights here in May. Just incredible. The beach is easy access, quiet. There are fire pits they light at night. It's a nice big resort and the room we had by the ocean was fantastic. Rooms come with a wood fireplace which is great on cool nights and it was so great to open the sliding glass door and let the ocean breeze and sound in.

This is a fantastic place to stay especially if you can reserve an ocean view room with fireplace. The views are stunning, the room is comfortable and the staff is great. What more can you ask for? There is a pool. There is a walking path above the shore and there is access to the shore
line .At night the hotel builds fires in three fireplaces/pits located around the property.

As an aside there is an elephant seal viewing area approximately 5 miles North on Rt 1
