The Cavalier hotel offers access to the secluded and romantic San Simeon coastline.

This hotel claims to represent the only oceanfront accommodations in the Cambia-San Simeon area which I believe means to them that they are the one hotel actually situated right on the bluff, offering a beautiful, unobstructed view with no streets or buildings in the way. Of course, there are other hotels in this area with views of the ocean that also may make the claim of being "ocean front." To travel to San Simeon is to enter into a magical, if secluded, coastal hamlet. San Simeon is located on California's breathtaking Highway One, considered by many to be the world's most astounding roadway.


This hotel offers:

  • Woodburning fireplaces.
  • The Cavalier Restaurant and Pezzulo's Restaurante with fine Italian cuisine are both in close proximity and boast ocean views.
  • Hearst Castle is just three miles south on Highway One. (See my review).
  • The hotel has two outdoor pools and spas although both are quite small.
  • My room had a semi-private patio from which to enjoy the view.
  • A wet bar consisting of a sink and minibar.
  • Big comfortable beds.
  • The hotel has three outdoor firepits which they light at night, with chairs to sit and enjoy the ocean and hear the crashing waves.
  • Room service is available.
  • Mounted telescopes are on the porch to look for whales and otters amidst the stunning Pacific ocean.

Baby/Child Friendliness:

  • Cribs available.
  • Laundry facilities for baby's clothes.
  • Refrigerators for baby's food and snacks.
  • VCR player in the room on which we were able to play my toddler's Teletubbies tapes.
  • Management provided me with some amenities for my baby, including wipies, trash liners for the diaper pail, and crib sheets.
  • Kids play ball and romp on the oceanfront area.
  • Child's menu available at the Cavalier Restaurant.

Note: Upstairs rooms do not have elevator access, so be prepared to carry babies or toddlers up stairs.
