Recently we stayed three nights at the Sand Pebbles. While not an "Inn" in the classic sense of the word, the Sand Pebbles offers travelers a modern, well kept, well run establishment to lay their weary heads in spacious comfortable rooms at reasonable prices, with a good continental style breakfast included.
Within walking distance from downtown Cambria and its neat shops and restaurants or as a jumping off point to day trip the coast, the Castle or go tasting, this place was a joy. As for the ocean, for most rooms, its a short walk on the other side of the road.

We plan to visit again.

Great location in Cambria - walked to the Sea Chest - great place with HUGE portions.
Very clean property and welcoming staff. Clean, quant rooms, great waffles at breakfast and good coffee. LOVED it.

Room Tip: I would have liked to book a ocean view room, try those out! :) I am sure there is not a bad room in...

We had a second story king with fireplace located at the front of the inn. We opened the window and listened to the surf all night long. Staff were helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast was excellent. Everything was as anticipated.

Stayed one night on our way up the coast, will come back for a more leisurely stay. Maybe even stay in one of this companies more romantic properties in Cambria. The website say this we have to find out for ourselves.

Cambria just calls out stay and relax and this was on a rainy weekend!

Stayed for three nights just before Christmas. Just a few miles drive from San Simeon to see the Elephant Seals and a little over an hours drive to Pismo and the Monarch Butterfly Grove. Plus easy access to the boardwalk along Moonstone Beach. Fireplace in the room made for relaxing evenings with the sound of the ocean through the open window. An amazing relaxing few days on the California Central Coast!

Thank you for your comments. It sounds like you knew where all the attractions where located, how wonderful. The Elephant Seals are such an amazing thing to see. This time of year the “pups” are being born and trying to find their way around. They are truly amazing! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay while staying at SPI and hope you return again soon.

This was the perfect place to stay. It is a lovely Inn. Great location, clean, variety of room choices, very comfortable all around. We had a king suite w separate sitting area & gas fireplace. Had a little view of ocean. Big view is just outside! Ours was very reasonably priced. Other rooms have full on views for higher rate. Breakfast was also good. Highly recommend!
