We have stayed at the Cavalier Resort before and looked forward to our return. We love the oceanfront vista, the fires at night on the bluff, the privacy and enjoyment of a balcony porch with a view out to the sea. Friendly staff, comfy bed, very good restaurant. The only demer

We usually stay in Cambria but couldn't find anything available for a last minute reservation. We needed two rooms and the staff at Cavalier was very accommodating
to be sure the rooms were close together even though it was a very busy time & the hotel was fully booked. The roo

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We have been staying at the Cavalier for years. They are super dog friendly, right on the beach. Great food at the restaurant (we prefer to stay in the room and have it delivered via room service) Glorious views of the beach from our balcony! Staff is very responsive.

The area is gorgeous but pretty remote I don't recall a spa. The hotel has amazing views and wonderful fire pits along the beach area.

Ca I plug in my Tesla overnight?
I did not see a clearly marked charging station but I would call to ask. The area is rather rural and it is quite a distance between towns as you go north.

"you do not have to be on top of the water to see it, Rooms back a couple of hundred yards from the water are available."
"Room 279 is a great room, and $100 a night cheaper than an ocean front room, a little bit smaller balcony than others"
"try to get something close to the restaurant, or you will have to walk"
"Best Views are the King Bed Rooms. Rooms that face away from the main highway are quieter."
"Request a ground floor room if you have mobility issues. No elevator."
US$151 - US$311 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
