Location is great. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Didn't use pool or other amenities so can't comment on that. All locations on the beach are higher priced but this place seemed pretty reasonable. The breakfast in a basket idea is great but the options were lacking.

The Sea Otter Inn offers lovely accommodations, a friendly staff and a breakfast basket brought to your room. We had the ocean front king and were very pleased with the size and cleanliness of the room. The bathroom was updated and spacious. Everything was perfect. Plan to stay here again.

B4 team stay booked 12 rooms and everything met or exceeded ecoectstions. That said I would base camp here if you like to bike or walk. If you are not tune with nature and the people around you you will miss the joy that surrounds you here.

Except for coffeemaker in room, Sea Otter Inn was a good choice for us and our friends. Enjoyed sitting out by pool and up front eating and having a glass of wine. Love walking on the boardwalk in front of all the little hotels. Weather was awesome the couple of days we were there.

Only stayed one night. It was as expected. Room clean staff did their duty but did not go out of their way. Nice location. Unfortunately, weather was cool and overcast. Had a very nice meal nearby. Breakfast delivered to room was nothing special.

The Sea Otter Inn Cambria, was a charming little spot. The facility was clean and well maintained, and very conveniently located for our needs. A group of us stayed there in conjunction with a cycling event we participated in on Saturday. Because I left early each morning, I did not have an opportunity to enjoy the breakfast. However, I noted...

The Sea Otter Inn has all the benefits of a small hotel with local charm while still providing all the amenities of a larger establishment. We loved the spaciousness of the room, great view and fireplace. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We enjoyed our two night stay at the Sea Otter Inn. The gentleman at the desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was larger than we expected it to be, and our little backdoor courtyard was lovely. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great, the room was clean, the location superb. All in all, it made for a...

Love this little hotel, we have stayed there a number of times, but this is the first time we have stayed with our dog. The staff was accommodating, and the garden patio rooms with their own little garden patio out the back are a great place to eat your breakfast or enjoy a book. Really great location on Moonstone Beach...
