If I could give more than a "5" rating, I would! This place was lovely! The exterior of the building itself is nothing extraordinary, but the rooms and setting are fantastic. Our room was spacious with a bed and a sleeper/sofa and had a large bathroom. There was a gas fireplace too! The room was spotless and beautifully decorated in...

How sweet! We love nothing more than exceeding expectations. We are very pleased to hear that you had such a stellar experience at Sand Pebbles Inn. The area is truly splendid and quite untouched by modern life. No chain stores in Cambria, just old-fashioned owner-operated businesses and shops in a lovely quaint setting. Try visiting during the Christmas holidays, the...

At the last minute, a planned stopover in Santa Barbara was canned and Cambria was chosen instead at the advice of friends. This lodging was chosen at their advice and I was not disappointed. Our room did not afford an ocean view but we had spent the afternoon driving up from LAX and were more interested in a place to...

It's cheaper to make your reservation by using Booking.com than through the hotel directly. Go figure? Regardless, we had a huge, pet friendly, super clean and very comfortable room. The location is to die for. We opened our window and listened to the sounds of the surf all night. Make sure you walk the boardwalk in front of the hotel...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are happy to hear you had a chance to explore this amazing location. It is a special experience to sleep with the sounds of the surf. Generally, you have more options when you book directly with any hotel. In the case of Booking.com, it really depends on the room and...

We had stayed at this hotels sister property (Blue Dolphin) and this hotel was very similar. We paid a lot for a full ocean view room, especially considering it's the off season. The ocean view horizontal slider window wasn't very imaginative, as you can't really get the paned window out of the way of the view even after to move...

Thank you for your review of your stay at Sand Pebbles Inn. Breakfast is really popular with our regulars but some are expecting a full restaurant breakfast when in reality we offer a complimentary Continental breakfast and fresh waffles. Try it next time! It's a great start to the morning. Some of the windows are paned because of the birds....

We spend 2 nights in this very recommendable Inn. It's the kind of place that really lets you relax and makes you feel carefree and safe. The full ocean view room is the way to go...park your car...walk along the ocean for miles...walk to nearby restaurants (2 options) and it is also a pleasure to just open the window and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated atop Moonstone Beach, the rooms and accommodations at Sand Pebbles Inn are perfectly appointed for all types of travelers. Our location is situated right off famed California Highway One, and convenient for people traveling up or down this magnificent coastline. Families or friends will find our mid-scale boutique property wonderfully convenient to everything Cambria and the Central Coast has to offer, including world famous Hearst Castle, just ten minutes to the north. Our staff will happily share local knowledge to help you discover the lesser-known Cambria attractions. Our full oceanview rooms provide the most extensive views of the Pacific Ocean and Moonstone Beach. Most rooms have partial ocean views and are only steps from the two-mile boardwalk overlooking the beach, tide pools, and daring surfers. The property is tastefully appointed with coastal influences and treasures found on the beach. Settle into our pillowy soft beds and enjoy a movie from our collection of free titles. Laugh with your family as you play a game of Monopoly from our selection of board games. No matter what your reasons are for visiting Cambria, Sand Pebbles Inn will surely add to your experience. ... more   less
