Two Night Stay at Sea Otter in January
Cambria is in an amazing location. The coastline is dramatic and gorgeous. A walk on the beach on Moonstone Beach or on the wooden boardwalk on the bluffs above the beach is a memorable experience. I have stayed at several of the hotels lining the road along Moonstone Beach. They seem fairly fungible to me. They’re clean and comfortable, but a little outdated. But with the natural beauty of the area who wants to stay in your room. The Sea Otter fits in this category. A plus is the jacuzzi and pool we’re nicely heated for a January in the rain swim and soak.

Loved our visit
Loved our stay at sea otter inn, wish we could have stayed longer!Loved our visitCheck in was easy and friendly, the room was very clean and extremely comfortable, enjoyed the fireplace and small private patio. But mostly we enjoyed the location directly across from the ocean and the boardwalk. Also very close to town which was super cute and easy to get around. Make sure to visit the sea lion viewing area about 15 minutes up the road
