This property is so cute! We stayed one night at the Sea Otter Inn so that we could enjoy the Holiday lights at a sister property ( The Cambria Pines Lodge. This property is located right across the street from the Ocean and 5 minutes from downtown Cambria. Although the rooms are a bit dated, they are clean and spacious. We stayed in a dog friendly suite which had a private patio. I also enjoyed the delivered breakfast in the morning that was part of the stay. This is a perfect property for families with dogs.
