We stayed for one evening in August. The place is pretty good - a smart motel kind of place. Fittings were good and room comfy. Best part was falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean! The only two downsides were: > the price is just too high for what it is > the breakfast room is...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are pleased you enjoyed the stay and that your one day visit was a good one. As for price, we are competitively priced with other hotels in our area, but you did arrive during our summer season which is the busiest time of the year. We do offer many different...

Lovely ocean front room with its own patio. Comfortable bed, nice shower. The room will be due for an update in the near future, but it was very clean. The whales put on a great show. Breakfast is included with your stay, they do a great breakfast, fresh fruit, waffles, pastry. Sweet gal attends to your every need while eating.

My wife and I wanted to get out of town last minute. We have stayed at a great deal of the properties on Moonstone Beach. We were offered a great rate Sand Pebbles and decided to check it out.

It is not cheap to stay at the Sand Pebbles Inn but the views compensate for the high prices charged along the Cambrian sea front. A friendly welcome at reception and a chance to change rooms. I didn't realise that the lower floor rooms were close to the kitchen so we decided to pay an extra $30 for a sea...

This small hotel is cute and comfy. Christina at the front desk was simply amazing and professional and very helpful. The only draw back to this place is that it has no air conditioning and some rooms do not have fans. I had to get ready for a wedding and my room was very stuffy and hot, with windows wide...

He was accomodating to our room request and provided great info on dinner choices. -The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. North-facing rooms offer a nice sunset view.

A well-maintained property. Located on the beachfront (as are many of the hotels here). Decent room sizes. Our room didn't have air conditioning (don't know which ones do have, if any - worth asking if it's important to you) and it was manageable (not ideal, but definitely manageable) despite it being August. Receptionist was courteous but new and therefore didn't...

Sand Pebbles is lined up along moonstone beach with other very similar looking small hotels. Our room, though unadorned, was clean and spacious. The desk staff was quite friendly and helpful and if you're driving an electric car they have two chargers: one Tesla and one general level 2 charger. You can walk the boardwalk all the way to route...

We stayed on the ground floor in an ocean front room. The room was very clean, with really comfortable bedding and pillows. The bath had a spa tub, separate shower stall, and oversized towels. The room had a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker, and a gas fireplace. There were windows on the left side, and across the entire front...

On a brief vacation going up the coast of California, we stayed at Sand Pebbles Inn. The room was cozy and the bed comfortable. Free Wi-Fi, small fridge in room and Continental breakfast in the morning. The breakfast seating is limited and we took things to our room. They made waffles to order. Great location right across from the ocean....

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
