Travelers' Choice
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. Sorry, No pets.

We stayed here the first weekend in October and had an incredible time!! The weather was so nice and our room was 114 and it was literally 3 steps from the ocean. The rooms we HUGE!!! The best was so comfortable and I swear it was the best shower ever- hot water & strong pressure. The bathroom has a huge vanity and PERFECT lighting that I wish I had at home. They had cable in the rooms (like actually good TV) and KCups. It is less than 5 minutes from the downtown area and when you check in I was given a full map and list of places surrounding to eat at. This is the only hotel we will stay at in Cambria and I 5000% recommend!!! Clean, Safe, BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING!

Sand Pebbles Inn is our favorite hotel along Moonstone Beach. The rooms are clean and cozy. We love the decor, especially the fireplaces. Modern bathrooms, nice shower with good water pressure. Unfortunately they don’t have the breakfast any more because of Covid, but you can order a small breakfast package thing for $5. They’ve removed the coffee from the lobby but there are coffee machines in the rooms. The hotel felt clean and safe.

I stayed with my dog in room 114 - king room with partial ocean view. The room was perfect: modern, clean, big. It does not share walls with any other rooms, so it's quiet. At night all I could hear were crickets and the ocean- lovely. There is nice a fireplace/ heater. The bed was super comfy. The jacuzzi bathtub was huge and plenty of very hot water. Only cons: the coffee maker didn't work properly, the fridge was not very cold, and the ocean view is in a corner right near the side entrance to the building, so there is a bit of traffic going past the window, including a worker who was climbing a ladder and doing work right over my head, but this was 11am on a Thursday, so when else was he going to do it? There is a wooden boardwalk directly across from the hotel that you can walk a mile along the beach. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, but they are allowed on the boardwalk. You can't leave your dog in the room unattended, which is pretty standard for hotels. The lovely front desk attendant, Kathleen, gave me a list of restaurants and noted which ones were dog-friendly. We did a lot of takeout due to COVID and the weather. Overall a wonderful stay and beautiful location.

We had a great time during a short getaway to Cambria. The Sand Pebbles Inn is very comfortable, cozy, and clean. We loved the thoughtful decorated room with ocean view, the comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and the proximity to the beach. The customer service was great! We enjoyed walks on Moonstone Beach and had fun exploring downtown Cambria with great restaurants accommodating socially distant outdoor dining - we recommend lunch at "The Hidden Kitchen" (best gluten free waffles!) and dinner at "Robin's". Thank you, Sand Pebbles Inn!

We were traveling North up the central coast, and have stayed in other similar Inn properties on favorite Moonstone Beach--romantic, cool ocean air and beautiful sunsets, sunrises. Sand Pebbles Inn is our new favorite! Cozy, beds very comfortable, great nights sleep, room is very clean, excellent warm shower, decor wonderful, every need anticipated. Our best hotel experience out of several stays in different cities up the coast! Great customer service!
