I was looking forward to staying at the Sand Pebbles Inn for one night on our way from San Diego to San Francisco. Needless to say, the Sand Pebbles Inn exceeded my expectations. From the moment we arrived we were greeted at the front desk with a smile and received wonderful service. The location is second to none. We had... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the inn was great. The staff are friendly, the room was spacious and the jacuzzi tub was perfect to soak in and relax. Breakfast was great with waffles served with fresh blueberries. The inn's beachfront location allowed us to stroll along the boardwalk each morning and enjoy the sea view. Sand Pebbles Inn is...

I stayed at this B&B during Thanksgiving weekend. Room was clean, room rate was reasonable, staff was courteous, breakfast was plenty and ocean was right in front. Very convenient location and almost walking to main st. area. Spot on.

We stayed here for one night. It is a gorgeous Inn in a wonderful beachside location. It has a lovely B&B feel to it which is a nice change from hotel chains! We felt very much at home here - the staff were lovely, and the location can't be beat. We stayed in a 2 x Queen bed Deluxe room... More

This is a perfect Inn! Even though we didn't choose an ocean - view room, the noise of the crashing waves on Moonstone Beach was a perfect accompaniment to the comfortable beds. The Inn is clean, well- kept, and attractive. The continental breakfast was on par with others. For a one night stay, it more than met our needs, although... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
