Rooms look bigger on their website. Wifi is very bad, and in that area of CA, cell service is non-existent. Also, they don't have a computer for public use to print out boarding passes, which is inconvenient. The beds were pretty comfortable, and the free breakfast was above-average with fresh cut-up fruit salad, pastries, oatmeal + toppings, juice, coffee, and... More

We stayed over night recently with our two small children and enjoyed our stay. Our favorite part of the hotel was definitely the location - five minute drive from the restaurants and shops in downtown Cambria and right along Moonstone Beach. My family had a wonderful night walking along the boardwalk and then down to the beach while we watched... More

Attention to every detail! Impeccably clean! Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely, delicious breakfast. Self serve coffee, tea and water available 24 hours a day. Perfect stay before or after Hearst Castle.

The good- awesome location. Helpful host. Comfortable room. Breakfast was ok. Plenty of electrical outlets. Reliable wifi. Not as good--No AC in the room so it didn't cool off till midnight or so. The ocean view from the room wasn't as amazing as the word made it sound. After 11 nights in CA, including a topfloor corner suite in San... More

My family and I checked in to the Sand Pebbles Inn for a two night stay in Cambria. The hotel was lovely. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is a great way to start your day. Of everything, however, the location is spectacular. You are literally across the street from the beach. Moonstone beach is an amazing... More

Room are spacious and up to date. Excellent Internet! Close to the beach and walking distance to fine dining. Extras include two electric car charges free to use as a guest of the hotel. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Recommend this hotel as a nice getaway if you like being close to the ocean.

Located right across from the ocean so you can hear and see the ocean waves, surfers and Dolphins. Great place to stay with really comfortable beds, very clean rooms and friendly staff. A bit expensive during the season. The continental breakfast offers some fresh fruit, Belgian waffles and cereal plus hard boiled eggs. Coffee is available early so you can... More

We had two rooms here for a family visit. I really liked it. The rooms are not huge but most of the time we were out on the beach or in Cambria. Be aware there is no air condition (that's true of most of the places along Moonstone) so you have to open your window and most of the time... More

Awesom room (facing the ocean) with excellent window views. We also enjoyed the patio chairs that also faced the ocean. And, since it is the west coast, there were beautiful sunsets to enjoy. A good place to eat (to the left few blocks) was accessed by the road or the boardwalk across the road. The boardwalk could also be used... More

Comfortable room (and bed). Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Location is outstanding, with great ocean views and easy access to walking paths along the bluff overlooking the ocean. Our "home away from home" in Cambria.

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
