This is the best inn that we have stayed in. It starts with the location - could not be any better was it is right on the beach. Our corner room faced the ocean and we slept to the very sooting sound of the waves. Spacious room with comfortable beds and all other amenities. Service is very friendly. Breakfast is...

Thank you for your wonderful review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are so pleased that our staff and accommodations were to your liking. Our expanded continental breakfast is definitely a favorite of our guests, so at moments, it can get full. We look forward to your next visit to Cambria. Cheers!

We stayed at Sand Pebbles Inn on our honeymoon in 2012. We loved it then, and wanted to stay there again. We had the same room #218 as before. It is on the second floor, smack dab in the middle with the BEST ocean view and sounds of the waves. We love it there and will go back again and...

This little Inn is right across the road from the ocean - the views and sounds of the sea are wonderful. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped - we chose a room with an ocean front terrace, which I recommend. The breakfast buffet was terrific and included fresh waffles with all the trimmings. Across the road, there...

Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed our breakfast and of course, the ocean front rooms are always a good choice. There is nothing quite as soothing as the sounds of the ocean to rock you to sleep. The views are expansive so many of our guests enjoy their evening sunset and some nice local wine. It's...

We stayed here for a night in June 2014 after driving through the Big Sur area. Very nice hotel with lovely décor. Across from the beach. Had nice coffee/tea/iced water station in the lobby. No breakfast. Easy drive to Hearst Castle. We stayed in a room with a partial ocean view, which was nice but probably not necessary (you had...

Thank you for your lovely review of Sand Pebbles Inn.It doesn't get much better than perfect. It sounds like you really explored the area for a short stay.

This is a very pleasant hotel right on Moonstone beach. The rooms were comfortable with everything that is needed. The staff were very approachable. The rooms in the centre of the property have a rather limited view of the beach. The location is ideal to visit Hearst Castle and to start the amazing highway 1 drive north.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are happy you found everything to your liking, and of course, always happy to hear the staff was helpful. We wish they could all be oceanfront rooms, but the beach is mere steps from the hotel for all to enjoy.

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
