“Hotel near Hearst Castle”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I just stay at a very nice hotel while on a trip to see Hearst Castle. The Hotel was very close and on the coast with a great view of the water. It is near other hotels and you can tell that they take care of the place as it has been remodeled recently. The staff was very helpful. The on site restaurant had really good food, at fair prices. The other hotels near by as I check them out frist on line and then drove by did not look as kept up and confortble. Nor they as I could see have as nice a ocean view. The Hotel even had binoculars that they let us use. 1 set per room. Only bad thing I can say was it is not a cheap hotel but a hotel that is worth it's prices. IT is not overly priced it is fairly priced. The in room extras are very nice.

This place is a "must stay". The entire resort is a step above the stereotypical Best Western. From the check-in to the phone call check-out, the service was professional and courteous. We will definitely stay there again.

The hotel was very nice. The room had an ocean view and a fireplace. The room was a good size even with a king bed. The room amenities were great with water and coffee. The fire pits out by the ocean were wonderful; it was great to watch the sunset. I would stay here again when I go to San Simeon. We went to see the elephant seals on the beach about 7 miles north. Definitely worth the time to see. There are so many seals. The El Chorlitos is within walking distance from the hotel and was very good.

We have stayed here in the past and make it a point to stay here whenever we visit San Simeon. The proximity to the ocean, the restaurant, and the rooms are very comfortable. I would recommend this Best Western to anyone who wants a quality and clean hotel to stay at.

Oceanfront room was perfect with a fireplace, awesome views, even bath robes and binoculars! This is the most amazing view room for a romantic getaway! The sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep and greet you when you wake. Room service was fast and great quality at a fair price. Well stocked mini bar. We we definitely return and recommend Cavalier to our family and friends!

The location and view from the rooms on the bluff are really great. The ocean is practically right outside your room. The rooms are clean and the amenities are excellent, except for the advertised high-speed internet. It is anything but high-speed and not even as fast as the lowest DSL I have used. I reverted to viewing my email on my cell because the downloads were so slow. The Speedtest I used to check internet speeds never got close to 1.0 Mbps and was usually around .5 Mbps.
