    So good

    Opposite the beach, awesome hot tub and pool with glass screen to shield you from the wind. Such friendly staff, comfy room, excellent amenities in the bathroom. Breakfast served in a picnic hamper to your door with coffee all day /night in reception with pastries and cookies.

    Beach cottage vibe

    We are Seniors who travel a lot. Sea Otter Inn had everything for a nice vacation by the beach. We enjoyed walking on the beach, the boardwalk, swimming in the pool, and delicious restaurants nearby. Our spacious room felt like a cottage with the fireplace, and the bathroom was updated and clean with a large countertop. The breakfast was good, and staff were friendly and helpful. Still no daily housekeeping (because of Covid) but we managed, and received fresh towels on request. Very quiet because it's one-story and at the north end of the beach. We'll go back!

    Quaint, oceanfront motel

    A quaint, clean beach motel! The staff was very friendly and the electronic notifications were clear and helpful. In addition to the in room coffee maker, hot beverages were available in the office. Can't beat the location! Within walking distance to several beachfront restaurants. Easy drive to downtown Cambria. Cozy fire pits with comfortable seating. The only negative was the bed. We had a king room and the bed has seen better days. The couple we were traveling with had a 2 queen room and their mattresses were obviously newer. Aside from that (which is a pet peeve of mine) this is a lovely property!

    The property is wonderful - from the private courtyard off my room to the fire pits to the Adirondacks with an ocean view. Breakfast and all-day coffee are awesome. Staff was excellent.

    Such a great retreat!!

    Such a treat!! The fireplace, the outdoor gas fire pit, and the basket breakfast left at our door made The Sea Otter a treasure. We loved our stay and can’t wait to go back.
