The Sea Otter Inn is one of the motels on Moonstone Beach Drive; there are at least 12 on this road just north of the village of Cambria. The hotels are all across the street from a rugged coastline with sandy beaches interspersed. There is a raised wooden boardwalk across the street that stretches through native vegetation that allows a great long walk along a beautiful coastline. The motel is older but well kept and very clean and nicely landscaped. There is a $25/night fee for pets. The included continental breakfast is served in the very small lobby (you grab a tray, make your selections and eat in your room) has good variety (coffee/tea, fruit, cereal, local pastries, yogurt, hard boiled eggs; you get the picture). There is a pool and hot tub. Rooms are upgraded with nice cottage decor and are comfortable, as are beds and bedding. I believe all rooms have a gas fireplace also. Coffeemaker, little fridge and microwave included in our room which came in handy. Front office staff was friendly and helpful. We took advantage of a great special for dinner at their sister property, the Cambria Pines Lodge; $50 for dinner for two including a bottle of wine and we could keep our dog with us on their outdoor heated patio. Any entree on the menu. A very good deal; ask the front office if they have it available. We enjoyed our stay, our dog so loved the beach walkway (and the wild bunnies in the vegetation) and would stay here again.
