Sand Pebbles has always been our favorite place to stay in Cambria and we will continue to stay there even though some of their recent changes are disappointing. (In fact we are booked for 4 nights in 2015). Romantic places like Cambria are for couples, which makes one wonder why the changes. Specifically, on our recent November visit we found...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We wish our new decor was more to your liking, we will review the chairs and placement so thank you for that suggestion. You might find our sister property, Blue Dolphin Inn, a bit more to your liking. We also have Moonstone Cottages which are individual and offer the ultimate in...

Let me start by saying this, if I were to stay anywhere on moonstone beach, I would give the hotel 3 stars just based on the location. Knowing this, there were some things that made this stay a 4 star. The rooms themselves, although not luxurious, are well appointed, very clean and rather large. The bathrooms dated, but very clean...

We recently spent one night at this hotel overlooking Moonstone Beach - it was a stop over on the way from Santa Barbara to Monterey. The location is idyllic and the hotel has a kind of olde worlde charm. After finding a space in the rather tight car park, we were warmly greeted by the desk staff and found our...

We recently spent one night at the Sand Pebbles Inn on Moonstone Beach and loved every minute. Located on Moonstone Beach, the long boardwalk that meanders along the coast is right across the street. The staff was extremely friendly and very service oriented. They willingly offered restaurant recommendations and other local area information. When making the reservation, I decided to...

This was a very good place to stay for a couple of nights. Located in Cambria, about halfway between LA and SF, it is directly across the street from Moonstone Beach and the boardwalk that extends the length of the beach. Since this was a mid-week stay, upon check-in the receptionist gave me the option of several different rooms with...

A friend and I stayed two nights and were 100% satisfied with every aspect of our stay. The staff was wonderful, our room was lovely, and there were many extra touches that made this a 5 star experience.

We loved this place from the moment we set eyes on it. The location was fantastic, just across the road from the beach and the boardwalk and a short drive into the lovely little town.

Hotel was very clean, nice welcome at reception, good parking facilities and nice outlook over the sea. We went for a room with terrace, the room was a good size and had a large wardrobe.

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
