“Great Location and restful”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We spent one night here on our way to San Diego. Having left that day from San Francisco it was a convenient stopping spot. We had a reservation next morning for Hearst Castle tour and then were on our way to San Diego. We loved the hotel and our room looking over the water. Convenient restaurant on site. We were thinking we would have liked to spend a few days relaxing right there.

Room Tip: Try for rooms overlooking the water.

This is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed. Ever. We stayed in an oceanfront room with rocking chairs on our patio. Our room also had a fireplace inside. The views were amazing and the room was very comfortable. The service was fabulous as well. Room service was quick. The property is awesome - there are two spots to access the beach and at night they light two outdoor fireplaces for people to enjoy. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel was the best surprise for me in my entire 2-week trip.
Stayed for one night and was upgraded to an ocean-view room.
The room was very nice and quite large, with a small patio area facing the ocean. It also had the most amenities I've ever seen in a hotel room, including binoculars!
Room service was also efficient and the food was good.
The location right on the beach is very nice, and convenient when visiting Hearst Castle.
Would definitely recommend this place.

The Cavalier Best Western in San Simeon is always clean, friendly and relaxing! We have stayed several times over the years and it never disappoints! The restaurant and free room service is a huge plus too! The food is great!

A comfy well equipped room, parking outside our door and the Pacific Ocean slowly lapping us to sleep - fantastic!! Reasonably priced restaurant with a good selection available. We were lucky enough to observe humpback whales spurting from the beach (and the restaurant)

Stayed one night, beautiful grounds, nice rooms, need new carpet, fire places, small kitchenette, complimentary champagne, balcony faced sunset, bed mattress way to soft, sunk in it, since having a bad back I need a firm mattress that was the only main drawback to keeping me from rating this a five. When my 110 lb girlfriend sinks in a mattress and says there to soft, then there to soft. Close to shopping and restaurants, little party store across the street within walking distance.
