We stayed at this resort for our anniversary for 3 days. We booked the Deluxe King room with a ocean view and a balcony. With Free Parking! The room was really nice! It has a fireplace and they give you some pre-cut little wood log pieces and they stack the fireplace with some news paper, some wood pieces and some...

I really needed to get away and recharge for a few days. I took my dog with me and spent time just enjoying the ocean, all the walks that were available. Everyone at this resort extremely friendly and helpful. I loved that they have a restaurant on site and took advantage of having a lovely dinner in my room every...

Motel on route 1 right next to the sea. Though it looks a little tardy upon arrival, it really grows on you. The rooms are large with 2 king size beds and all the facilities you might expect. The fridge is well stocked and all the drinks and snacks are reasonably priced. The rooms are a bit dark needs a...

I found this hotel last minute on a California road trip with my family. The reservationist was helpful and friendly. Check in was smooth and easy. Our partial oceanfront view was large and comfortable. Because we had a north facing room, it was a little dark in my opinion but over all the room was lovely. The fireplace was easy...

We needed more coffee pods and the management offered to deliver...

The hotel was a great pet friendly place, very late check in was accommodated and our room was already assigned and ready and waiting for us. The room was clean and comfy although a carpet replacement to hardfloors is needed that and getting tod of the popcorn ceiling would do wonders and make this an A+ place to stay as...

We had a great room. A king and queen bed and plenty of room. The hotel is right on the ocean with wonderful views. It was a short drive from The Hearst Castle. A few minutes from Cambria which has lovely shops and a great coffee shop.

Convenient location and beautiful view of the ocean, So close you could walk out and be on the ocean. Amazing restaurant! Food was great for dinner and breakfast! Loved the fire pits and the heat pools. Wish we would of had more time there.

In our planning to go to Hearst Castle you have a lot of Hotel/Motels to look at in the San Simeon, Cambria & Cayucos area. They are all close enough and you can pick based on price or view. If I may suggest. If you are focused on a sea view you want to look at this place for sure....

My family enjoy our time spent at the Cavalier resort in San Simeon. We love the fireplaces outside to sit by and watch the sunset! We love the convenience of being able to walk right out to the beach. The services, rooms, and views are amazing!

“Amazing views of the ocean, second floor. I could leave my door open and listen to the ocean all night. So peaceful.”

“Ocean front room are only available with 1 king bed and. 2 person max but since the whole property is open to the ocean and in front of the beach you may not need to splurge for 'ocean front' if you are traveling with the family. Many basic rooms have a partial view anyway.”
HGKat, 16 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Room had a weird smell when you first walked in, but pretty much went away. Didn't care for the mold on the bathroom walls, but with being so close to the water maybe that is why.”
