Was alright

You have to pay extra for parking unless you want to walk across the street to park. Breakfast was unimpressive, but I guess it was free. Also I wished they had better food menus for what to eat nearby. Lady at the front desk was nice, but not very helpful. Location was great, right next to the beach and the pool is nice. The view from the balcony was also really nice.

Great Family Getaway

First time we have stayed at a hotel that was right on the beach. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed being able to go to the beach and the hotel pool at the same time. Very convenient. Staff was very friendly! Would definitely go back!

Pleasant/Relaxing Beach trip

First time back to the Cavalier in about 15 years. Still a great location at the north end of VA beach. However we read on line that this is the last summer for the hotel as it currently operates-due to be taken over and renovated/remodled. consequently the atmosphere was somewhat somber-clearly there have been staff cut backs and somewhat less than diligent upkeep of plumbing etc. in some rooms. Staff were pleasant and helpful but complimentary breakfast was almost all carbs and next to no protein. Had to eat elsewhere-a minor inconvenience. Looking forward to hear what will take its place as the location is excellent.

Some outstanding restaurants within a block or two: 1. EAT 2. Pacifica (a Tapas menu)-both were superb.

not so good.

It was bad. As soon as we were given our key in the 4th floor we took a while trying to figure out were our room was just because the door and wall didn't have the room number. I went to let the front desk know not even an apology she smiled an say nothing back. The worst was that i read on a sign they have in the bathroom that the sheets on the bed are changed daily unless you leave that tag in the bed. I wouldn't have asked for a sheet change if the sheets weren't wet but when we came back from breakfast the beds were made but the sheets were still wet that made me wonder if they ever changed the sheets before we came. Very disappointed again I run to front desk and i asked them to change everything including the cover and when the cleaning lady came she had only change the sheets. I'm aware they will be tearing down the hotel but i really hope as they mentioned they will be managing another hotel hopefully the service will be better.

Great location, dilapitated hotel

We've stayed at the cavalier a few times over the years. Every year it looks worse. It used to be a happening place back in the day. The reputation is wearing thin though. The location is fantastic and the private beach is a big plus. The room wasn't very clean...it was extremely dusty. Just looked as if it hadn't been used in awhile. Its not a horrible place, just nothing fancy.

Park across the street when staying at this hotel....They charge you to stay in the hotel parking lot on the Oceanside. If you park across the street at the old hotel parking is free.

Not on holidays

We arrived at the hotel at checking on Friday . At front desk staff seemed rushed I wanted to ask questions but couldn't because the check in person was too worried about having us out. The elevators were too slow , I would go up the stairs coming in and out to the beach. Worst of all I wanted to sit out with my family and eat dinner at the lobby restaurant but I wasn't even approached by any waiter at all. I had to ask 3 staff members that I needed a waiter but no one came. Finally after 20 minutes I just ordered to go . I understand it was 4th of July weekend but isn't this the time hotels make more money therefore should be nicer to the people that are staying.
