We spent Valentine's weekend at Sand Pebbles...perfect from beginning to end. Even though we arrived on 2/13, a Happy Valentine's Day chocolate cake greeted us in our room, what a wonderful surprise. From 2-person jacuzzi to the in-room fireplace to the 180-degree view of the breakers, our experience was delightful, restful, and reinvigorating. We didn't care that it rained much of the weekend, it was a delight to be snuggled up in the room, cozy, warm, and private. The staff was wonderful...attentive yet descrete. HIGHLY recommend.

Any body travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco must stay here. This hotel is small and probably the best I have stayed in.
It is small, very clean and fantastically decorated. The staff, rooms and everything are wonderful. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic and you can even take it to your room if you wish. Even go back for more and take it to your room. We had a room on the front with its own veranda and the view directly over the beach was fantastic, the sunset well !!!!!!!
My only regret is we should have stayed here much much longer but we were en route to San Francisco and only stayed one night.
There was a beach bar/restaurant a few yards down the road and the meal was superb. (Beachcomber). Cambria is a small quaint town with unusual shops. I think this location is part of heaven and will definitely return as obviously many people do.
A credit to the owners.

We stayed here during Christmas week on our way to San Francisco to visit family for the holidays. My husband hadn't been to Hearst Castle so we wanted to stay nearby. This hotel served our purpose perfectly. The woman at the desk was very friendly. She guided us to Madeline's for dinner at the cute little downtown nearby (most other restaurants were closed for the holidays) and it was delicious. We were given a free appetizer coupon. Yummy! Our lower front king room was tasteful, including a fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a generous amount of bath goodies. The breakfast was just basic stuff - fruit, yogurt, boxed cereal, etc. We slept very well and took a nice walk along the beach path above the shore before we left for Hearst Castle. In my opinion, it's worth spending a bit more to have a view of the ocean and the fireplace (unless you can get that at home...)

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Sand Pebbles Inn in mid-November, 2009. The hotel is located along Moonstone Beach, a short drive to central Cambria. The inn is quaint with lots of homey comforts: gas fireplace, sound of waves, free in-room WiFi, small refrigerator, microwave, DVD player, and lots of free DVD's that you can borrow. There is a small breakfast room with an attendant who makes waffles with a breakfast of hard boiled eggs, toast, fruit, cereal, yogurt, milk, juice, and coffee every morning. A nice touch is the freshly baked cookies served with coffee, tea and sparkling cider every afternoon between 3 and 6pm. The employees are friendly and service is excellent. Most of the rooms do not have direct ocean views but face north and south. Our room had a bay window giving a diagonal view of the ocean. A few larger, more expensive suites face the ocean. One issue was the loud, noisy pipes when the neighboring room showered or flushed. Fortunately, during our 2 night stay, the neighboring room showered and flushed infrequently. We would stay here again but next time we would reserve one of the large, ocean facing rooms. We paid $99/night + tax for an internet special. The regular price is $149/night.

Best:
- free afternoon cookies
- fireplace
- location facing beach
- filling breakfasts
- dvd player in room with free dvd's

Worst:
- noisy pipes when neighboring room showers or flushes

We stayed two nights in this lovely place - paid extra for a big room with a patio - but it was worth every cent. - the view is outstanding. Very nice clean room. Breakfast okay. Nice seafood restaurants only 5 minutes away. Will stay there again.

Sand Pebbles is a wonderful little hotel on the beachfront in Cambria. Very good welcome from host who provided information readily. Rooms excellent with all facilities, clean and welcoming. Superb views of the sunset from sea front rooms. I would heartily recommend this hotel and endorse other trip advisor recommendations (one of the reasons we chose it)

Tip== book on line for significant reduction in room price.
