Met Friends here for a two night stay. They have made improvements that are great. My room was nice. I had a patio outside. They have added some fire pits that make it really nice to sit outside. They have glass around them to protect you from the wind. In the morning they deliver breakfast to your room in a cute little Toto basket. You pick the night before what you want and fill out the card. We ate our breakfast outside by the firepit and watched the ocean. There are Frigs and Microwaves too.. Walk across the street to the ocean and boardwalk, which is a nice long walk along the beach. There is also beach access. Nice benches to sit on too.

Room Tip: There are a couple of ocean view rooms that are nice with chairs out front reserved for those rooms...

Sea Otter Inn is a quaint, family friendly motel style Inn, located right across the street from beautiful Moonstone Beach- we enjoyed our 2-night stay, great pool and hot tub too! They deliver a full breakfast to your room every morning, which was delicious! It's a great value!

We love staying on Moon Pebble Beach drive in Cambria but this was our first time at this hotel. We were delighted with it. Delicious cookies at reception and a nice breakfast brought in a basket to your room in the morning. It's easy to get on the boardwalk which is always nice. We walked down to the beach in the morning and it was easy access. The room was comfy and had a gas fireplace. there is a pool which we didn't use--it's pretty cool in Cambria--and a firepit.

Room Tip: we liked being away from the fire pit which was near the office on the right side.

Great little inn right across from the ocean. Great views, great walks, cute town not too far away. It was a calming stay after a long day at Hearst castle. Fresh coffee in the morning along with a cute basket of food. Firepits outside in the evening.

Charming and quaint. Great location. pool and spa enjoyable and well kept. The breakfast basket, was delightful as part of our stay. The outdoor chairs with the firepits were perfectly located and very comfortable with an amazing view of the ocean!

The location is great. Walking distance to the beach and Moonstone Bar & Grill restaurant. This place has very good food. Their dessert is fabs. The hotel pool is very clean. We love breakfast basket delivered to our room. The food is very fresh.
