Sand Pebbles Inn was one of our favorite hotels on our recent California adventure. Located just across the road from Moonstone Beach (no hotels on the beach side of the road), the hotel is perfectly located to enjoy walking the boardwalk along Moonstone Beach. The hotel is a short walk to a few restaurants and a short drive to more...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. What a delightfully detailed account of your experience. We do try to anticipate what our guests might need, but we never expected our free continental breakfast to be so popular! It can get a little crowded in these busy summer months, but we do our best to get everyone fed as...

We booked an ocean view room and it was so worth it! Could have sat and stared at the Pacific all day, plus so close to the beach and Boardwalk. Friendly staff, nice breakfast options and a short skip to the wonderful Sea Chest make this hotel a real hit. Cambria itself has a great feel too.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. The ocean is pretty captivating to watch, we never tire of the views. We are pleased you had such a great time with us and that you had a chance to explore the area. Cambria is a good home base for day trips all around this county and its diverse offerings.

Stayed there one night last weekend, based on TA reviews, while driving from Laguna to our home in Redding. It was a last minute decision and we were very pleased. The wonderful lady at reception showed us several rooms and we decided to upgrade to an ocean view room. Incredible views of the sunset and ocean, comfortable bed and jacuzzi...

Weston was amazingly helpful and a huge sweetheart with a great sense of humor. Loved the stay. I remember going there as a kid. I didn't want to leave, so nice and relaxing.... I absolutely loved it and I want to come back soon again.

Even though we were traveling with our two small dogs, the room (set aside for guests with pets) was very nice (in some hotels this is not the case when you are given a "pet" room) and had a view of the ocean and the beach boardwalk.

We stayed here overnight on the Highway 1 drive. Our room was spacious and well decorated, as well as very clean. We were able to open the screened window at night and hear the ocean. The continental breakfast is quite adequate, although the space they have set aside for the breakfast is quite crowded. We would stay here again.

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
