Beautiful location, wonderful rooms, lovely garden, and welcoming staff. An all around great and affordable place to stay, simply cannot say enough good things about this place. Not to mention the absolutely stunning views from the rooms! Love this inn and will most definitely be back!

Had a wonderful stay on our 25 Anniversary! The front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. The pool and jacuzzi tub was spotless clean. We loved our stay on our special day

Always our choice when in Cambria, preferably for a full week, 2 or 3 times a year or anytime we can. Accommodations, location and personnel excellent. From our very first visit several years ago we have stayed here.

It is always lovely to watch the sun set from the motel's "front yard." Moonstone Beach is the only place to stay in Cambria. Our room was tight and cozy, with the fireplace adding both warmth and cheer. Great to return to after a night out in the cold.

The room and staff were great. The location was perfect. Close to the beach so you can sip your coffee while on a beautiful morning walk. You couldn't find a better place for the price! Very pleased. I will be back!

We had a wonderful week. We will definitely be back many more times. We have always recommended the Sea Otter to friends and family. We stayed in other hotels at Moonstone but have never changed again once we stayed at the Sea Otter.

I was looking for a place to take my wife for her birthday. This was the perfect choice! I was pleased with the size, cleanliness and amenities. Although the motel is older and the not as well insulated as some newer motels, the nice decor and location made up for it. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and I... More

Beautiful location. Rooms nice and comfortable. Good location to Hearst castle. Boardwalk was a good walk to enjoy the ocean. Definitely see the elephant seals at the nursery. Food in town good but way overpriced.

Perfect location, charming room, helpful staff and breakfast pastries galore. Take a glass of wine and watch spectacular sunsets from the cliffside path or chairs right in front of hotel. Cambia and its artist shops is a short drive.
