This lodging lived up to the praises of other reviewers. Lovely room, bed and furnishings. View to the ocean was as described—I enjoyed watching the waves. Quiet. Breakfast was good. We really enjoyed just crossing the road to walk the path above the ocean. Beautiful.

Reviewed 2 January 2017 via mobile

Wow. I can't even begin to say how much I love this place and the area it is in. This was our second visit all the way from Tennessee. We had a king room facing the ocean and enjoyed it so much. The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and basically home away from home feel. The breakfast was great...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. Aww, that is really sweet that you were sad to leave. And very nice that you discovered us all the way from Tennessee! Our staff is genuinely caring and we are happy that shows.

We stayed here one night during our trip up the coast. Cute and quaint. We had a room with 2 queen beds. It wasn't a huge room but clean and comfortable. Bathroom is nicely updated. Breakfast was simple, but lots of options and met our needs. We walked across the street to the beach and searched for moonstones with my...

My husband and I stayed for a short weekend. Hotel is wonderful. Comfortable, decorated nice and staff was great. We had a partial ocean view and it was more than enough. We opened our windows and listened to the sounds of the ocean and birds. We both agree, next time we are in Cambria we are staying here. Excellent!

After reading several positive reviews on Sand Pebbles Inn, it seemed like the ideal oceanfront getaway...and it was!! Conveniently located across the street from Moonstone Beach and walkway, Sand Pebbles Inn is a mixture of modern conveniences and rustic charm. The rooms aren't huge, but very clean, nicely furnished and decorated. There is a flat screen TV, electric fireplace, ceiling...

The location on Moonstone Beach is breathtaking! You can hear the ocean and walk directly across the street to the beautiful boardwalk. I have stayed at a few Moonstone Beach locations and this is top notch. I opted for the ocean front lower level room with a patio and it was so worth it. The staff was extremely polite and...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are very pleased with our new bathroom remodel, so happy you liked it. Our goal is to provide all the little extras you might not think of...like the towels for the cars. We know that is what makes the big difference. Hope to see you again on your next trip...

We loved everything about the Sand Pebbles Inn. The gorgeous Moonstone Beach and its boardwalk is about 50 feet from the front of the hotel. Hearst Castle and outdoor attractions are minutes away. Rooms are immaculate and quiet, but you'll probably want to open a window to hear the surf. Hotel staff is very friendly and a nice range of...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are always happy to hear that our guests enjoyed their visit. Cambria is a wonderful place to be and is close to many county attractions, like Hearst Castle and the Paso Robles Wine Country. After a day of exploring, nothing better than sleeping to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean!

We had an ocean view room and were lucky enough to get the second story corner room. Our cape-cod style room & windows overlooked the ocean, which was across a one-lane street. There are a string of cute hotels along this street, and a walking path to at least 2-3 restaurants. The ocean is amazing; it literally is a beach...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We recently remodeled the bathrooms at Sand Pebbles Inn and as mentioned, breakfast is included. Our location is fabulous for walks on the boardwalk or toes in the sand. You might even find a moonstone if you look really hard!

This is a great hotel right on the beach. The rooms are a great size and the staff very helpful. There are places to eat within walking distance and the town of Cambria is under a 5 min drive. The beach is across the road and the boardwalk is very nice to walk along. Would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. Cambria is a delightful village and just a short drive (or long walk) from our hotel. The shops are all unique and special and there are no chain stores at all! Shopping is surprisingly wonderful when you live in an artist colony.

The people were very friendly. The room was large, clean, and decorated beautifully in a beach motif. They gave you a wonderful full breakfast with fresh fruit, made delicious waffles you can cover with blueberries or strawberries. Great coffee and lovely dessert you might want after your breakfast. The area for breakfast is small but it accommodated everyone. They even...

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
