We stayed at Sand Pebbles Inn on our honeymoon in 2012. We loved it then, and wanted to stay there again. We had the same room #218 as before. It is on the second floor, smack dab in the middle with the BEST ocean view and sounds of the waves. We love it there and will go back again and... More

This little Inn is right across the road from the ocean - the views and sounds of the sea are wonderful. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped - we chose a room with an ocean front terrace, which I recommend. The breakfast buffet was terrific and included fresh waffles with all the trimmings. Across the road, there... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed our breakfast and of course, the ocean front rooms are always a good choice. There is nothing quite as soothing as the sounds of the ocean to rock you to sleep. The views are expansive so many of our guests enjoy their evening sunset and some nice local wine. It's... More

We stayed here for a night in June 2014 after driving through the Big Sur area. Very nice hotel with lovely décor. Across from the beach. Had nice coffee/tea/iced water station in the lobby. No breakfast. Easy drive to Hearst Castle. We stayed in a room with a partial ocean view, which was nice but probably not necessary (you had... More

Hi Lupe!!!! I promised I'd mention her. It took me forever to write since our Oct trip, but I HAD to tell you about Cambria and Sand Pebbles Inn. Our family did 7 days in San Fran, drove down Hwy 1 to see Hearst Castle then did LA the weekend and ended up at Disney for 4 days. Out of... More

Thank you for your lovely review of Sand Pebbles Inn.It doesn't get much better than perfect. It sounds like you really explored the area for a short stay. For a first trip to the West Coast, you discovered a town that many native Californians still haven't found. Cambria is a bit of a hidden gem! We look forward to your... More

We stayed for two nights on a road trip along the coast. The hotel is in a great location, right accross from Moonstone beach. Staff was very friendly and the hotels overall was clean and comfortable. We decided to splurge on an ocean front room, which was great for views of the ocean and sunsets. For what we paid, I...

This is a very pleasant hotel right on Moonstone beach. The rooms were comfortable with everything that is needed. The staff were very approachable. The rooms in the centre of the property have a rather limited view of the beach. The location is ideal to visit Hearst Castle and to start the amazing highway 1 drive north.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are happy you found everything to your liking, and of course, always happy to hear the staff was helpful. We wish they could all be oceanfront rooms, but the beach is mere steps from the hotel for all to enjoy. More

We spent 3 nights here and had a wonderful time. The beach area and boardwalk are beautiful and steps away from the hotel. Our room was very clean, roomy, and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a good DVD selection. Breakfast waffles were delicious, and there was a good variety of other breakfast items. The entire... More

Thank you for your wonderful review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are glad you had a chance to stay a few days and really experience the area.

Thank you for your great review of Sand Pebbles Inn. You must have been here on one of the rare days that is hot enough to think about air conditioning. Generally, the temps in Cambria average around 60s-70s so not much need for it...that ocean breeze usually keeps it pretty perfect. More
