The Sea Otter is located right across from the boardwalk along Moonstone Beach. Two restaurants are within walking distance. We enjoyed the hot tub, breakfast and our overall stay. We chose the Sea Otter because of past experiences and were well rewarded this time.

This inn was perfect for what we needed! Cozy, great location right on the beach in Cambria - so close to the Hearst Castle. Beds were comfortable too. Loved the picnic basket with breakfast. My only issue was that the towels were flimsy.

Upgraded room was nice and clean with a comfortable bed and nice bathroom. We liked the breakfast "picnic basket" in the morning. It would be nice if the choices were a little more varied and generous.

Beautiful little inn beside the ocean, right across from Moonstone beach. Rooms are clean and spacious (if a little warm for those of us used to cooler climates)... but not uncomfortably warm. The pool and hot tub area is lovely and well maintained, and the...More

I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.

We had a great meal at Robin's. They have a really nice "outdoor" area, and cute inside décor with a fireplace. We also love Cambria Pines Lodge, the food is good, the bar has an old lodge feel with a big fireplace, and... More
