Fodor's Review

Reasonable rates, an oceanfront location, evening bonfires, and well-equipped rooms—some with wood-burning fireplaces and private patios—make this motel a great choice.

Great place to stay when visiting Hearst Castle, CA

I just wanted to recommend this place, where I stayed just one night, before visiting Hearst Castle (about 10 minute drive from this hotel). Best Western PLUS Cavalier Oceanfront Resort 9415 Hearst Dr San Simeon, CALIFORNIA 93452-9724 805/927-4688 I did not pay extra for an oceanview room, but the hotel is located right next to the water. I could easily see the surf from my room's front door, which door opened to an outside landing. The

property has two or three bonfires set on the beach, with chairs, and it is extremely pleasant at night. I paid about $138 for my room, without breakfast, but with free parking. Best part was the little fireplace in my room. It was ready to light and was much appreciated on the foggy night. Great little Keurig coffeemaker with selection of coffees and teas in the room's granite countertopped bathroom outer area. Nice little restaurant on site, too.
