We got engaged while staying here. Gorgeous ocean views across the street, and plenty of privacy for a fun getaway for us. We will definitely be coming back here lots & lots. Walking distance e to great restaurants too.

We loved our stay at Sea Otter. Wonderful for our small dog, room had a charming fenced in backyard with small table and chairs. Felt like we were in an English garden. Easy walk across Moonstone to the paved walk above the sea. Good for dogs. Room was clean, had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has some pet friendly rooms. We brought our cavalier spaniel. Love the grounds, particularly the seating areas with gas fire pits. Great location and very friendly staff. The room was clean and well maintained. We would certainly stay again and recommend to others.

The attention to small details on grounds & ammenities like figuring out how to safely continue the sevice of providing breakfast was so refreshing! Every other hotel I checked on Moonstone just had a blunt "sorry" statement and no compensation. Loved the in room fireplace. Favorite was peaceful, private garden space out back door, borders creek behind. Ate breakfast to song birds and surf sound.

Great location. This property is to the right of the Moonstone beach strip. It is quiet on this end. The views are awesome. The room was updated, cute, clean and quiet. We loved the two adirondack chairs out front that came with our room. Perfect place to watch the sunset.
