We chose this hotel because they had a Tesla charger but would,reccomend it for anyone. Great property, rooms and amenities. Loved the enhanced continental breakfast, delicious pastries and great coffee.

The hotel is lovely. We enjoyed the private sitting area off the room. We will definitely stay again, next time for more than one night. The included breakfast delivered by picnic basket is a fun treat.

The cutest little place. Comfortable beds, beautiful view and breakfast in a basket at your door in the morning. The fireplace was so lovely and a huge shower! Flowers outside and the loveliest staff. The best place to bring your loved ones!

Good price, great location and the free breakfast is substantial. The hot tub is an added bonus. We did not get to use the fireplace because it wasn't cold enough, but we appreciated having the fridge.

Quaint and quiet, just what we needed. Staff was very accommodating, rooms are very clean. Location is good, at the quiet end of Moonstone Beach Drive. The gardens and little seating areas are very inviting.

The Sea Otter Inn was a nice quite weekend get-away. Although we didn't see any Sea Otters there, we enjoyed the rest of the sites and easy relaxed atmosphere of Cambria. The lodging is within walking distance and a short drive to all sorts of fine dining establishments. Great views of the beach and ocean. We enjoyed just relaxing outside... More

There was a total of five of us in the group: myself and 4 older teenagers. We stayed in the suite which was perfect for our group size. It had a a comfy queen bed in the bedroom with its own bathroom and two double pullout couches in the front room with another full bathroom. The property was charming, clean... More
