Stayed over MDW 2012. For a holiday weekend, you cannot find better prices right on the beach! The employees were very nice. They have a very nice set-up - true motel, where you park right in front of your door. The rooms were nothing special, but not bad. The music selection playing at the pool was very depressing, and apparently no one knew how to change it. We enjoyed sitting outside the room, enjoying a beer with our "neighbors". A short walk from the brewery and a few other restaurants. Would stay again.

We read the other reviews here and decided to give The Cavalier a try. I am a fan of family owned motels over big chain hotels so this place fit the bill. The pet policy was very reasonable and sealed the deal for us. We were in a two bedroom 'cottage' poolside which was clean, comfortable and roomy. When you stay with dogs, you can only stay in a cottage. The dogs loved it, and because it was larger than a single room, we all had space to move around. You can't beat the proximity to the beach and if not traveling with pets, the ocean front rooms are fantastic. The Cavalier lived up to its reputation. It was great! We'll be back for sure.

Room Tip: Two room cottage is great, and if you can get one towards the back, so quiet at night y ou can hear the ocean.

We've been patrons at the Cavalier since the 1950s, and the "old girl" has a true following from all over the East coast and Canada. Convenient to Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, this ocean front motor court features a range of rooms from very small rooms for two to two- and three-bedroom apartments to pool side rooms to ocean front efficiencies. We just love the place, even if it's not perfect. All rooms feature a refrigerator and microwave; many have original tile in the baths.Original knotty pine paneling appears in most of the poolside rooms, and the staff is one of the best on the Outer Banks. Call early in the year for your booking, especially if you want an oceanfront room. And keep in mind that the period between post-Labor Day through mid-October is still an excellent time to visit Dare County.

Room Tip: Rent an umbrella and chair set from one of several outlets on the beach.

Our go to motel. Right on the ocean, very central to many restaurants and shops. The staff is very nice. The kitchenettes are very cozy and the price is great. No dunes to block your view, and a neat rooftop deck where you can watch the sunset over the Wright memorial.

Open your door you are on the beach ! Very clean updated some, flat screen tv, nice people that run it. Bathroom is small, kitchen are is fine. Heat unit can be loud, you can barely hear the people next door.
