Reviewed 29 April 2014

Extremely nice ocean view room with fireplace, microwave/fridge, and very comfortable beds. Like all the Moonstone Beach Drive rooms, quiet except for the sound of the Pacific. :) Very clean. All the employees were kind and helpful, and the continental breakfast buffet in the morning was perfect.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with a full ocean view -- four king and two double queen beds.

My wife said this was the best hotel she had ever stayed in. The room itself was very nice but what was great was the ocean view room. We could open the window and listen to the ocean all night. The bed was so comfortable. The employees were so nice and very helpful with lots of great advice.

Great little Inn, we have stayed in several places on Moonstone Drive and this has turned into one of our favourites.
It is well appointed, the beds are comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and well maintained. Some of the rooms have a full sea view and some a partial, the one we stayed in recently said it had no sea view but in fact you could catch a glimpse of the ocean. Tea and coffee are freely available, the breakfast is well thought out with sufficient choice, and available until 10am unlike some other places that want you to eat by nine or even earlier. We have never had a problem with noise in any of the rooms we have stayed in and although this time we were very close to reception this was not a problem. Not the cheapest place we have stayed in but hen you generally get what you pay for and it is certainly not the most expensive either.

We stayed here for one night en route to San Francisco. There were three of us (2 Adults one Child) in a double queen room which had a partial sea view. The room was really nicely decorated as it seemed the rooms had been re decorated this past few months. Everything we needed was provided. The room was nice and quiet also. Would definitely return! Try to get a room with a sea view even if partial, you can hear the sea!

Such a great place and really good breakfast! Can't wait to return! We stayed on the room with the the view of the ocean. The room was very clean. I was amazed with the complimentary breakfast. The pastries I had were probably the best I have ever had in my life.

We recently stayed 2 nights in the upstairs king room with full ocean view (room 218) to celebrate our anniversary. The view from our room was incredible, and the sound of the waves was so soothing. The room was very spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. The bed was very comfortable, and there were lots of nice touches in the room and lobby. We plan on reserving the same room for next year's anniversary!

And, don't miss having dinner at Robin's Restaurant in Cambria, or walking along the scenic boardwalk seaside trail that runs the length of Moonstone Beach.

What a lovely find! The Sand Pebbles is a little jewel on an inn. Tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, wonderfully quiet, beds extremely comfortable, every detail thoughtfully attended to, friendly and helpful staff, yummy breakfast. Took my mother as a treat for her birthday. We couldn't have been more pleased! We have stayed in many an inn, and we can't think of a single thing that needs attention. Thank you for a wonderful two days. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are beautiful. If you can afford one, these are the ones to be in!
