Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2005

My husband and I needed a mini getaway from San Jose.We wanted to stay somewhere economical with a great view.The cavalier was perfect.
Our view from the balcony was wonderful.The in room binoculars was a
nie surprise.We were able to see sea otters from our balcony.The staff was pleasant and the food was great.
The king room with fireplace and a mini bar right on the ocean was perfect.
We enjoyed our stay just as much as our visit to Hearst Castle.

We stayed here in order to visit Hearst Castle, which we found fascinating. We are not pet-owners but despite the pet-friendly policy, we were not disturbed by any of the dogs encountered on the extensive grounds. The location is beautiful for watching the sunset. The open-pit fires are an interesting bonus. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast in the restaurant was average and the service was slow. We had a wonderful time visiting the castle. Maybe we should have skipped breakfast and had a snack at the castle instead. The resort is a little expensive but a quality place to stay for sure.

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.
