I recommend this hotel for a weekend stay, beautiful views from hotel room. Nice cozy rooms with a fireplace. Located near Hearst Castle, and Cambria. Hotel Staff was very helpful and made sure that we enjoyed our stay.

We were celebrating our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised that we had been booked into an ocean view room. It was wonderful. Staff was very helpful. Nice walking path to view the ocean with fireplaces to stay warm in the evenings.

very nice hotel, well located, nice view ont he sea, wondefull sunsets, pleasant to have a fireplace in the room which was very confortable. Everything you could need was in the room refrigerator, safe cofee maker (but have to ask for the tea at the reception) and a patio where you could rest, could and valuable restaurant for diners.

I love visiting San Simeon and Cavalier Inn is almost always where I stay. I have a dog, and their rooms are dog-friendly, which is wonderful. They provided me with a little dog towel and poop bags in a little holder as a welcome doggie gift. Even if the pooch isn't on the trip with me, I often stay here...

For past 10 years we visit yearly for the beauty of the area. We only stay BW+ at Cavalier for the ocean front property, fire pits, and high quality of hotel. When staying in San Simeon/Cambria we would not choose any other hotel.

Loved our stay. It is hard to find such a great view and nice room at such a reasonable price. No complimentary breakfast but there is a restaurant on the property. They also have a nice pools, whirlpool, laundry facility, fire pit on sand. Friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend.

This hotel turned out to be a real gem. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to fellow travelers. The room and service was excellent as was the location. The restaurant was the only disappointing aspect which I'm not too sure is actually associated with the hotel.

We were driving the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to San Frncisco and also wanted to visit the Hearst mansion at San Simeon.

Spent Labor day weekend in San Simeon. The staff and hotel were very helpful with all our needs. The beach and scenery were unbelievable. I was there with my best friend on a girls trip. Met a nice man named Ken the last day we were leaving. He was there with his friend who drove a orange Harley. Would like...

Stayed Thursday and Friday last weekend on a whim - no reservations. The staff was very friendly and the grounds in excellent condition. The site is located between Hearst Castle and Cambria on the ocean side with groomed walkways to the beach. The view is pristine California coast that included whales jumping just off shore. The hotel has set three...
