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...

The room needed a refresh in decor. The curtains had holes but otherwise very clean. The reception lady needed a good lesson in customer service. Did not smile once when we checked in or checked out. No customer engagement at all.

The location of this Inn is amazing such a breath taking view in a secluded California beach. The staff was really friendly, the room was very well updated and extremely clean, the bed was very comfortable. The best part of the stay was the morning continental breakfast put out side of your door in the morning no need to rush...

Have stayed at Sea Otter Inn before. Very nice inn on Moonstone Drive and competitively priced. Very close to the beach and restaurants. Easy walk to Cambria. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Very quiet rooms and you cannot hear your neighbors.

This is your happy place. Each morning, I just grabbed a cup of coffee and strolled along the boardwalk, enjoying the ocean and the cool, foggy air. In the afternoon, we would open the back door of our guest room and enjoy a glass of wine (or three) on our own private patio surrounded by lush, green plants and trees....

Enjoyed our stay very much, nice, cozy and lovely hotel, very good location. The bed is comfy too. But it would be better if the lights can be more bright. Helpful and friendly staff. Had a great time staying there :)

This place is a fantastic find. Recommend this one to anyone wanting a peaceful get away along the ocean. Delivered continental breakfast, very well presented and maintained facility and great access to one of our favorite areas along the Pacific Coast. All reasonably priced and a great value.

Darling hotel that is very quiet and clean. I loved the location, I could walk across the street to the beach path early morning enjoying my cup of coffee with the sound of the waves and misty ocean breeze.
