We stayed at this great hotel in October of 2016, and it is amazing. Right by incredible Moonstone Beach (in my opinion, one of the best beaches in California) and right next to a great seafood restaurant. A perfect respite after an arduous day on Highway One:). Don't miss it!

We stayed first week of December and was on the first floor facing the ocean. A little more expensive, but worth it. With the window slightly open you could hear the ocean waves at night and warm and comfortable bed. Small table and chairs inside the room as well as outside on the patio. It was nice to have a...

Wow. I can't even begin to say how much I love this place and the area it is in. This was our second visit all the way from Tennessee. We had a king room facing the ocean and enjoyed it so much. The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and basically home away from home feel. The breakfast was great...

My experience has been that (most of time) an address like Moonstone Beach Drive fails to live up to the expectation. Sand Pebbles Inn is an exception. The Inn is directly across the street from the beach - the sound of the waves follows you wherever you go (including your room). There's a wooden boardwalk along the bluff for sunset...

My husband and I wanted to visit Hearst Castle and found that Cambria was a short drive away. We could not have been more pleased with Cambria and the Sand Pebbles Inn! We arrived to the SPI early (around 1000) and were met with a friendly receptionist who checked us in fast and efficiently! While the SPI is a little...

I am a hotel owner, and I booked our room online. It was the cheapest room for a time they were pretty busy. I had no expectations that the room would be in the best location, which was absolutely fine. It was right next to the front desk, and you could hear noise, but it didn't bother us. I knew...

Amazing view, clean room, free breakfast, comfy bed! Great for a couples getaway. Pet friendly but have to arrange ahead of time. Friendly staff. Only complaint is checkout time is 11am, should be noon.

We stayed in a partial ocean view room. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I've been to the Sands Pebbles Inn before and like to stay there when in Cambria. Madeline's restaurant is a great place for dinner.

Stayed in one of the three front downstairs suites for our anniversary. Very large patio over looking the ocean at Moonstone Beach. It was a truly perfect location. The rooms are comfortably furnished. The bathroom a little outdated, but it did have a separate jacuzzi bathtub large enough for two! The staff were amazing. They served a decent complimentary breakfast...

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
