We love the Sea Otter Inn and have been guests for a lot of years. This year there was an issue as they have changed the breakfast options. If you have a gluten restriction then you only have one option, so hopefully you do not also have an restriction with yogurt.

We've been coming here for 15 yrs. It's always been our home away from home. Quaint,warm, always made to feel special. This time felt like we were a bother. From reservation on. I miss the old Sea otter.

I took hubby away to Cambria for his birthday weekend. Based on reviews, I booked a 2 night stay at the Sea Otter Inn. From the friendly check in by Tom, to a well appointed room with a private small patio , it kicked off a wonderful, peaceful weekend. There are firepits in the front with comfortable couches and chairs,...

Started with cookies and coffee and friendly staff and then checked into a beautiful room with private cozy patio right across from the beach. The breakfast delivered to our room in a picnic basket was delicious.

Nice place. Good value. Nice breakfast. The heater was noisy and woke us up repeatedly. The breakfast is a nice feature. The room was very clean. We liked the adjacent patio. The bed was comfortable. That's all.

A lovely motel in a remarkable part of the world. We loved the room and enjoyed the 'basket' breakfast. The location right across from the boardwalk was just what we were after. It was a bit chilly for us to use the pool and hot tub but there were children who clearly enjoyed it.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sea Otter Inn. This cute little property sits right across from Moonstone Beach in Cambria. We were able to get one of their suites for the night and I have to say it was really nice. You can tell it's a little older property but it is well maintained and you can see...

This is my second occasion at the Sea Otter Inn. The property is on Moonstone Beach in Cambria, California. I enjoy this section of the coast as SLO-CAL and the region combines easy access to beautiful scenery, good restaurants, ample outdoor opportunities, and good weather while not placing you in the swarm of the southern coast. The property is lovely....

Wonderful spot right on Pacific Ocean. Property is well maintained and rooms comfortable. Pet room had no odors and carpets were very clean. Their is a resturant within walking distance, however the bulk of restaurants require a drive.
