The name is a little misleading, the Sand Pebbles Inn would best be described as a quality motel with indoor corridors.
To me, Inn evokes cozy sitting areas with log fires, and lots of books, the Sand Pebbles is not an Inn in that sense, but it is very comfortable.
Hearst Castle and the Central Coast Wine Country are but short drive from the Inn,both well worth a visit.
Our large room with partial ocean view had a gas fire place, however the position of fireplace/TV/bathroom door could have been better, they all seemed to conflict with each other, especially the large bathroom door which opened into the sleeping area and conflicted with the doors of the TV cabinet.
The Inn location is perfect, right on Moonstone Beach Drive, steps from the ocean, and the two mile long boardwalk, just the thing for a stroll or energetic exercising. Very friendly and helpful staff, and two restaurants within walking distance, but be sure to check on their opening times. The breakfast was excellent, with cooked to order waffles and the usual selection of cereals, bagels, fruit, and excellent coffee. The breakfast area itself is a little cramped, with very small tables some of which are located in the corridor outside the breakfast room, this needs work.
All in all, great value for money and on our next visit to the Cambria area the Sand Pebbles Inn will be our first choice. Stayed three nights.
P.S. Make sure you have your camera for the spectacular sunsets.
