Receptionist was very helpful & friendly. Room was spacious & clean. Breakfast was awesome! Only a tiny bit of noise from the highway could be heard with the windows opened. Night time amenities were put on reception counter if you forgot e.g. toothbrush.

When planning vacations I always consult the reviews on Trip Advisor and the reviews of this hotel couldn't have been more spot on. We stayed here with two teenage boys for 2 days in the middle of a trip down the PCH and wished we would have stayed longer. The room was very clean and comfortable (great beds!) and the...

We stayed at the Sand Pebbles Inn for one night in late June on a trip up the coast, and wished it could have been longer! The room was comfortable and spacious, and the location was perfect--literally across the street from the boardwalk. Our partial ocean view room allowed us a clear view of the sunrise/sunset without having to go...

We stayed in the full ocean view room with a patio. We loved sitting on our patio enjoying the sound of the waves and the beautiful view. We also enjoyed walks on the boardwalk along the beach, visiting Hearst Castle, and driving into Paso Robles for wine tasting. The hotel was close enough we didn't have far to drive. Plus,...

We stayed here on a spontaneous romantic getaway. The hotel feels like your staying on an old rustic sailing vessel. Lots of wood, birds, blue and the sound of the ocean in the distance. We stayed in the upper corner room and could see the ocean from our bed or you could sit at the desk and watch the waves...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are pleased you had such a great experience on your getaway.

Sand Pebbles Inn was one of our favorite hotels on our recent California adventure. Located just across the road from Moonstone Beach (no hotels on the beach side of the road), the hotel is perfectly located to enjoy walking the boardwalk along Moonstone Beach. The hotel is a short walk to a few restaurants and a short drive to more...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. What a delightfully detailed account of your experience. We do try to anticipate what our guests might need, but we never expected our free continental breakfast to be so popular! It can get a little crowded in these busy summer months, but we do our best to get everyone fed as...

We booked an ocean view room and it was so worth it! Could have sat and stared at the Pacific all day, plus so close to the beach and Boardwalk. Friendly staff, nice breakfast options and a short skip to the wonderful Sea Chest make this hotel a real hit. Cambria itself has a great feel too.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. The ocean is pretty captivating to watch, we never tire of the views. We are pleased you had such a great time with us and that you had a chance to explore the area. Cambria is a good home base for day trips all around this county and its diverse offerings.

Stayed there one night last weekend, based on TA reviews, while driving from Laguna to our home in Redding. It was a last minute decision and we were very pleased.

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
