“Ashes to Ashes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We arrived late but were made very welcome and checked in really quickly and easily. We had phoned ahead to let them know that we would be late and they couldn't have been more helpful or reassuring.

The room was clean and well appointed with everything we could possibly need from nail polish remover wipes to a sewing kit.

We woke up the following morning to discover we had a sea view with the hotel literally yards from the beach.

Breakfast was served in the restaurant next door and was good value for money.

Overall this hotel was great value for money even if the room did resemble a set from Ashes to Ashes. Would have liked to have spent more time here.

The Cavalier is just down the road from the Hearst Castle. It's right on the beach and has fire pits along the beach that are lit at night (very nice). It has a restrauant that offers great food at reasonable prices. Our room was immaculate. We left our windows open at night and slept to the sound of the surf. The Cavallier is a great place to stay.

Great room with great view. Fireplace with wood, binoculars, robes, coffee and more... Pool was 50 feet away. Ample parking. Convienent restaurant with views of the ocean. A bit spendy but worth the extra bucks...

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.
