Had a one night stay at the Sandpiper en route to San Fran. Arrived around 8pm so unfortunately missed the sunset. The gentleman on the check in desk was very friendly and welcoming and the paperwork was sorted promptly. The room was a pleasant surprise...clean and perhaps newly refurbished. A fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making facilities were provided. It may... More

Had a one night stay here - room was basic but clean and was a great stopover on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The staff were welcoming and the muffin breakfast the next morning was very good. What set this place apart was the fantastic customer service. My husband left his tablet here and the owners were...

Stayed here for 1 night on a motorcycle road trip in a group of 4. The hotel is walking distance to restaurants and the coast. Quiet, clean and everything worked fine, just an older place with no frills. I would stay again.

The family that runs Sandpiper Inn are honest, helpful and always ready if assistance is needed. The neighborhood is nice. It's a short walk to the Embaradaro with it;s great views of the... More

Typical old school American motel with very friendly staff, WI-FI and breakfast included. Can`t be better if you are looking for a place to sleep over. Nice and quiet neighborhood refrigerator and microwave inside the room.

This small inn is an amazing spot for a weekend stay at the coast. It is an unassuming, quiet, clean, and reasonable motel with an absolutely incredible view of Morro Rock from upstairs and down. In addition, they welcome pets on their ground floor rooms. I have stayed there for business and as a getaway from the summer heat with... More

The room at the sandpiper inn was basic, clean, and comfortable. The rooms are fairly dated and could do with modernization, however we only spent one night at the property and it served its purpose. The property is close to both the beach and town.

Stayed one night when driving from LA to SF. Only walking distance from the Embarcadero where you'll find plenty of good eats and a nice view of Morro Rock. There's currently construction immediately opposite, but didn't notice any noise or dustiness. Very simple breakfast provided free at the reception office. Sandpiper Inn is quaint, sufficient but short of fantastic.

We spent a night in this motel while traveling from LA to San Francisco. I liked good location of Sandpiper - just 30 minutes driving from Big Sur. The price is more than "friendly", however my card was debited before we arrived, and it made me some problems. WiFi worked well. Breakfast is included - cornflakes, cookies and coffee -... More
