          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.

          I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.

          I feel very badly for Abigail B not getting sleep in what is supposed to be a very relaxing place. My husband and I have often been to Moonstone Drive hotels. I looked up Tivago for the first time to prepare for another visit to the area. One hotel, after we had made reservations months ago for our anniversary and had asked for a great room, placed us in the BACK BY THE FREEWAY!! We left and will never consider that place again. It wasn't Sea Otter. But I'm glad I read this review, so we don't have to go through what Abigail did. Telling her that you Sea Otter staff will tell people about the fireplace didn't help Abigail B AT ALL! She should have received AT LEAST A REFUND or some other compensation. We will NOT be booking any rooms at Sea Otter. Thank you, Abigail B!!
