My husband and I wanted to visit Hearst Castle and found that Cambria was a short drive away. We could not have been more pleased with Cambria and the Sand Pebbles Inn! We arrived to the SPI early (around 1000) and were met with a friendly receptionist who checked us in fast and efficiently! While the SPI is a little...

I am a hotel owner, and I booked our room online. It was the cheapest room for a time they were pretty busy. I had no expectations that the room would be in the best location, which was absolutely fine. It was right next to the front desk, and you could hear noise, but it didn't bother us. I knew...

Amazing view, clean room, free breakfast, comfy bed! Great for a couples getaway. Pet friendly but have to arrange ahead of time. Friendly staff. Only complaint is checkout time is 11am, should be noon.

We stayed in a partial ocean view room. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I've been to the Sands Pebbles Inn before and like to stay there when in Cambria. Madeline's restaurant is a great place for dinner.

Stayed in one of the three front downstairs suites for our anniversary. Very large patio over looking the ocean at Moonstone Beach. It was a truly perfect location. The rooms are comfortably furnished. The bathroom a little outdated, but it did have a separate jacuzzi bathtub large enough for two! The staff were amazing. They served a decent complimentary breakfast...

The Sand Pebbles Inn was a wonderful place to stay. Our room was spacious, clean, bright and sunny. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was good with enough selection for all. It is right across the street from Moonstone Beach which has a long boardwalk. We would stay here again.

The hotel is very nice, rooms are big enough but not huge and the location is amazing. Make sure not to get room 114, it's right next to the breakfast room, ice machine, and exit door. The breakfast was okay, didn't have any meats or protein. Pretty much toast, cereal and yogurt.

We had a room looking right at the ocean, loved the view and the chance to walk across the street to the boardwalk and beach. The staff was extremely helpful and the free breakfast the next morning was the best one we've had in a long time. Kitchen staff were great too.

Sand Pebbles is or place to stay in Cambria. We try to visit at least twice a year to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA. We always stay in room 119. The people are always so helpful and thoughtful. One of our visits usually correspond with a birthday, and when we informed them of such, we have...

What a lovely spot! A good friend recommended the hotel after her own very pleasant stay earlier in the year and we are so glad we did! We thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay before exploring the grounds of Hearst Castle and driving up the California coast. We had a lovely view of the ocean from our room 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
