Sea Otter Inn, Cambria
This place was just adequate. Had a motel feel to it

Wonderful Inn
Stayed two nights for a visit to Hearst Castle nearby. Enjoyed the immediate ocean proximity a lot. The inn is wonderful, staff friendly and knowledgeable. Will come back for sure.

Very Good8.0
All was good. Rooms were comfortable. My only complaint is that it used to be a smoking hotel and you can still smell stale smoke.

Sea Otter Inn is a winner
The Inn was in a great location near Hearst Castle and great costal views up the coast. The ocean was just across the road with a nice boardwalk with access to the rocky beach. The rooms were very nice and the service was impecable. Good in room breakfast. All together a nice experience.
