This hotel is right across the street from Moonstone Beach with its boardwalk for great strolling along the ocean. The room is nicely appointed with a very comfortable bed and fireplace. The continental breakfast was adequate. Overall, this is a great place to stay. Next time I'd like to try the sister property Blue Dolphin Inn.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Sand Pepples Inn. The accommodations were very good....king-size, comfortable bed and the bathroom was just right, not too small and sufficient counter space for toiletries and cosmetics. We both noted how comfortable the bed pillows were and we discovered that they even see their pillows to their guests! The soft... More

I loved this Inn. The décor is so clean and unique. I truly felt like I was visiting my best friend's house on the ocean. Lovely, clean, inviting from the minute you walked in the door. Comfortable bed, pillows, towels, a little microwave and refrigerator, coffee maker with teas, hot chocolate, and coffee, dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, a little... More

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... More

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... More
