    Can’t beat the location, but what makes Sea Otter Inn special is how quaint it is. We loved our sister weekend there!

    This property is beautiful and has some great touches such as delivering breakfast to our room by hanging a picnic basket outside of our door in the morning. A great spread! Can’t beat the location as site across the street from the ocean. A beautiful boardwalk and walking path across the road as well. Loved it.

    We loved everything!

    breakfast in room was delightful. The location was great...right across from the ocean, couldn't have been better.

    Literally across the (small) street from the beach and boardwalk. This is a very cute, very clean motel along the small access road that lines the coastline, one of a dozen hotels on this strip. Breakfast was delivered to our door in a basket so we could go dine on the beach if we wanted! The room was plenty spacious and the bathroom was clearly recently remodeled. There was always coffee, cookies, or other treats available in the hotel office during its open hours. The room itself had a nice alpine vibe with blonde wood accents - it felt clean. Though not trendy or modern it also was not old, dusty, or outdated.

    There was little to dislike. Like many hotels in this area, this is a spiffy motel - so it has the unfortunate giant parking lot in the middle of rooms, rooms whose only windows face the parking lot, that kind of thing - but that was the situation for every hotel on this road. It was wonderful to have a hotel of reasonable price right on the ocean.
