          A wonderful hotel in a fantastic spot! We especially like the fire pits, and the fact that breakfast is delivered to our room. We hope to return again later this year. Cambria is our favorite "get-a-way" place.

          Fine for a night or two. Nothing particularly exemplary about this place but pretty much all of the hotels along this stretch are the same: glorified motels. The location is great and the breakfast was satisfying.

          Would this be ideal for a family reunion? Where we would need 12-15 rooms and want to hang out on and around the property and beach?

          I believe there are maybe at the most 10 units on the whole property. Besides the pool area which is not really big the parking lot would be your only other area to gather.

          I feel very badly for Abigail B not getting sleep in what is supposed to be a very relaxing place. My husband and I have often been to Moonstone Drive hotels. I looked up Tivago for the first time to prepare for another visit to the area. One hotel, after we had made reservations months ago for our anniversary and had asked for a great room, placed us in the BACK BY THE FREEWAY!! We left and will never consider that place again. It wasn't Sea Otter. But I'm glad I read this review, so we don't have to go through what Abigail did. Telling her that you Sea Otter staff will tell people about the fireplace didn't help Abigail B AT ALL! She should have received AT LEAST A REFUND or some other compensation. We will NOT be booking any rooms at Sea Otter. Thank you, Abigail B!!
