Location is along a stretch of motel / hotel properties directly across from the beach and a nice walking trail. To get to main part of town will need to drive. There is one restaurant within walking distance. Our room was comfortable and decent sized. Coffee maker, small refrigerator and a microwave were included. No in room safe though. Breakfast...

My daughter and I stayed one night here on our way up to Santa Cruz. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a front corner room upstairs with two queen beds. The views were amazing and there is a little couch facing the window to fully enjoy it. The room was clean and...

We have returned to the Sand Pebbles Inn many times over the years because it is dependably enjoyable! The recently refurbished rooms are lovely, up to date, very comfortable and off season the rates were great! The property added a small section at the front of the hotel with 4 adirondack chairs where we were able to watch the beautiful...

The Sand Pebbles Inn is our go-to place to stay every time we return to Cambria. Immaculate rooms, friendly and helpful staff, wonderfully simple complimentary breakfast - and a fantastic place to sip wine and watch a sunset! We will definitely be back!

We decided to take our Corgi, as she is a great little traveler. The Sand Pebbles has 2 great rooms for small pets. We didn't know and brought our own pet dishes and bed, but these were provided in the room. Our girl liked their bed better than her usual one. We were right by the outer door, so it...

Not a spectacular place but a spectacular location. Directly across the street from moonstone beach. Room wasn't too bad. Might be a little warm in hotter weather. No air conditioning. People here were very friendly. A free above average continental breakfast with fresh waffles. I would stay here again.

We could only stay one night and wish it could have been more. Sand Pebbles location on quiet and picturesque Moonstone Beach can not be beat. That area remains one of the least developed and under touristed on the coast.Its very close to San Simeon, Elephant Seal watching and an easy drive to San Luis Obispo. The motel itself is...

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
