Have stayed at the Castle Inn (sister property) before this. That is a nice property. This one is definitely nicer. I will put on comparative perspective we had on this trip, we stayed at the Saint Francis in SF on this same trip...and the service and room were better here. There was a terrific upgrade for our very late arrival...

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.

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.

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.

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
