Verified Reviews of Sea Otter Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent Cute Inn."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had a great stay at this quaint inn in Cambria.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
09-May-2022 Verified Review, stayed from Fri May 06 to Mon May 09 2022 at a $244.99 average nightly rate.
"Nice motel across from the ocean in Cambria."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Nice motel to stay at and affordable while being right across the street from the ocean. Simple breakfast is delivered to your door in a picnic basket with juice and choice of burrito/fruit. Rooms have relatively new renovations in the bathrooms and a small table/chairs in the back (each room has a small private patio off the back). Spa was nice hot and the pool was decent. The majority of the motels along this strip are owned by one group or another and have probably been freshened in the past few years. This one was more affordable than the Oceanpoint Ranch (stayed there recently as well) however, its beds are very plush and has more 'activities'.
