“Excellent location and great restaurant”
Reviewed May 4, 2005

I did some research here on this website before I made my choice so it's my time to contribute. I was about to stay at the Sands by Sea Motel but I'm glad I didn't since the motel is behind Best Western Cavalier.

My room was right next the Best Western Cavalier restaurant so it was very convienent for me since I eat often. The rooms have mini bar/mini cupboard that has food and drinks in there. There is DVD which is an added plus so bring a DVD if you don't like watching TV. I would have gave the Hotel an Excellent rating but there was odd smell when you first walk in probably since it was just cleaned but smell went away after opening the windows.

Rest of the room was pretty standard..not bad for 100 dollars for Ocean Front property. If you look out the window you can see the ocean and green bluff where you can sit out at night with lighted bon fires by the employees.

If your looking for direct view of the ocean, get the King's Row rooms which are 150 dollars. These rooms face the ocean directly. There are other rooms which are even closer to ocean. Parking is right below my room so that was good since I was on the second floor.

I would stay there again definitely if I was to go back to Hearst Castle which is only 3 miles away. This is one of the only Ocean front properties so well worth it. Oh yah..go see the Elephant seals..hilarious.
