Been here many times and we are always extremely satisfied with our room. We always stay in on of the three front rooms with the patio which puts it over the top. Can not say much for the rest of the rooms since we have never stayed in them. Staff is always friendly and accommodating Recent refurbishing of the rooms...

Love this place. We have stayed a few times, it is always clean and the staff are always willing to assist with any needs you may have. Right across from the ocean, near seal beach and Paso Robles. Good food is not hard to find. This is our go to get away when we need some down time.

Moonstone beach is our home away from home. Our escape, our sanctuary. As we get on the 101 heading north we start our vacation mode. The tension melts from our shoulders the instant we see the meandering boardwalk along the sea. We long for our return.

We have stayed at the Sand Pebbles Inn a few times, and it is always the perfect getaway. The rooms are charming and the breakfast is a nice way to start the day. The staff is very accommodating, and coffee and tea in the lobby and the room is a welcoming touch. Thank you for being special.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Sand Pebbles Inn. We did what we wanted - just relax and walk along the beach - and the Inn was amazing. It is located across the street from the beach. Breakfast is part of the package and included a nice choice.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. That is certainly on the top of the list for most of our guests. The Pacific Ocean is particularly spectacular along the coast of Central California and listening to the waves at night is an added bonus.

Lovely property that is sister to the very nice Blue Dolphin Inn and several others in the area. Clean and quiet with some rooms facing the water. Rooms are beautiful, particularly the ones that have the magnificent ocean views. Location of the inn is perfect - right across from the water. The town is a shirt drive away. Staff is...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. There is nothing quite like staying on Moonstone Beach for the full ocean experience. The village of Cambria has great shopping, restaurants, and lots of historical buildings. It is quaint and picturesque and the locals are very friendly.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are happy you started the new year with us and that we were able to assist with your plans for dinner. It can definitely get chilly at night here, best to bundle up for the walks outside at night. We hope your next visit is in a warmer season so...

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!

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We agree that Moonstone Beach is an exceptional one, very rustic and uncrowded. And there are several others that are quite lovely as well. Check out the beach across from Hearst Castle, it has a protected cove and can be warmer than Moonstone Beach.

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
