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.

Lovely stay at the sea otter inn, it was just one night but were made to feel very welcome. They have a lot more amenities than you’d expect and the owner is very friendly and helpful

The room was great! Loved the fireplace! It heated the whole room. Very nice shower. The coffee was the best we've ever had at a hotel.

Great place to stay!
We loved our time at the Sea Otter Inn. Breakfast was a pre-order with quality choices. Enjoyed the large jacuzzi at night and the fireplace in our comfortable room. We will definitely stay again.

great place
loved the picnic basket breakfast, right across from the ocean, nice room, with fridge and microwave. My only issue -if you are a light sleeper, like I am, and you need the heat on-as I did this last weekend, the faux fireplace is the heater, and it made a very loud popping noise when it turned on, which woke me up.
