There were large noisy fans in the hall for days without any explanation from the staff when we enquired. There is a large outdoor hotel pool but it is not heated and too cool for anyone's comfort. Also, it seems... More

My family has stayed at the old Cavalier hotel twice, the first time was wonderful and we couldn't wait to come again, unfortunately the second time was a disappointing experience. On our second visit, we had to change rooms twice, the first time because the air conditioner was broken and stuck on full blast - the room felt like a... More

Cavalier location is good north from the boardwalk but only a few blocks away so the br8ght lights and noise are lower here. Room on 8 the was quiet but Mold smell. They gave us a new room no problems. Many friendly professional employees.
