My husband and I have stayed here on numerous of occasions. We love it. It is a nice, clean and an enjoyable place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a nice continental breakfast with fresh waffles too. They are also pet friendly, which is great... always CLEAN!!!! We will definitely be back...again and again. :)

We really appreciate this amazing review. Our staff is wonderful and we really enjoy interacting with our guests and their four-legged furry families. Of course, when you are pet friendly, cleanliness is extra important and we are pleased we continue to live up to your expectations. We look forward to your next visit!

Booked a nights stay at Sand Pebbles Inn because it was less than 10 minutes from Hearst Castle. Everything was as advertised, clean rooms, great location across from ocean with a wonderful Boardwalk taking you up and down the coast. Nice place to walk in the morning, drinking your coffee, viewing seals sunning themselves on the rocks. Breakfast was great...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. Cambria is a wonderful escape for locals and travelers. There is something undeniably amazing about the sounds of the ocean. We love providing the little touches that makes it special and we look forward to your return visit.

Close to Hearst' Castle, on the beach. A very romantic place, and romantic rooms, with fireplaces. Expensive however, as most hotels in the region. 2 very crowded restaurants nearby. Breakfast nice, in an uncomfortable room however (Motel style).

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. The complimentary continental breakfast has become far more popular than we ever expected so sometimes our room can get a little full, but many guests prefer to take it back to their rooms to enjoy in private. Our prices are comparable to others here but we do have a budget-friendly option...

My boyfriend and I had a romantic valentine/Presidents day weekend. The staff was very nice and helpful. When my boyfriend cut his finger they brought a first aid kit right down. We could hear the ocean (just across the road) at night. The only problem was our room was somewhat warm at night making it hard to sleep, but we...

Thank you for your delightful review of Sand Pebbles Inn. I recall that was an unusually warm weekend for us! Not typical at all and certainly not normal for February. Our average temps are 60-70 year-round so not often we hear that it was warm at night. But it does happen on occasion and takes us all by surprise. We...

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...

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...

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
