Near to the Corner

Although it appears the Cav Inn had a bit of a face lift recently (new carpet and drapes in the room), the bathroom was very dated and sorely in need of new fixtures, exhaust fan, and the ceiling was in very sad shape. The bed was not that comfortable, and the train coming through (about a block away) several times through the night meant that it was not a very restful night for me. The breakfast was okay; it was sufficient to get us through to lunch; but I will say the hotel staff at in the dining room were very helpful and attentive.

Noisy Place!

After arriving at 1:30 am (after a long drive), I was disappointed to be awoken at 2:30 am by a wedding group who was partying outside their room! After notifying the front desk (and hearing the commotion for some time), it took almost 20 minutes for hotel staff to subdue this nuisance. When I reported the above timetable to the front desk upon check-out, I was a given a response of "well they had a wedding party". I will not return to this location.

Needed Maintenance

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years, given its combination of location and price. Most of these visits have been fine, but this past weekend was not, as our request to have the clogged bathroom sink was never acted on. (When the water was run it drained v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y and the prior crud backed up into the sink.) Also, the heat / air conditioning unit did not work and the front desk staff was notably unsympathetic to the issue.

A decent place that could be better...

We picked the Cavalier Inn because of its location and price. The room was clean, the bathroom worked fairly well (sink drain slow, usual problem with slow shower head). But the carts to transport luggage to room were rickety and the breakfast was barely edible. What exemplifies the problems with this place are the windows over the catwalks on the street elevation of the building. The appear not have been cleaned in weeks.

Very Comfortable

My wife was very nervous after she told me to make the reservations but upon arrival I got the thumbs up. The staff was very pleasant and the rooms were super clean. This is a very nice hotel. I don't think anyone would be dissappointed staying here. Thanks

Good for a one night stay

The room was clean, but the heat vents were next to one bed, blocking the heat to the rest of the room. Therefore, I was hot all night and my husband was cold. Everything is very low, meaning the sink, toilet, etc. This is not easy for folks getting up there in age. The beds were very comfortable (something hard to find in other hotels).

so so overnight stay

Pool was CLOSED due to some ADA sling construction.....that had not yet started....weather was warm. Pool could have been opened until construction started. BEDS were terrible for both my wife and I...not comfortable. Sorry, but that's the way it happened It did not ruin our stay..just annoying!

Short Getaway

The hotel is not far from restaurants and shops and we enjoyed our walk up University Ave and Main Street. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and the price was very reasonable. The only negative would be a noisy air conditioner and a mattress that was a little hard. We would stay there again, but would ask for a room on the back side of the building.

Approximately one mile from the hotel is the fantastic Peter Chang's China Grill. If you like Szechuan cuisine, this is not to be missed.
