This was my first time in Cambria and booked this hotel based off the price and recommendation of the reviews on TripAdvisor.

We booked this room last minute on our way to the Pacific coast from Sequoia National Park. We were a bit worried, but were pleased when we saw our room. Right at the front of the building, just across the street from the ocean, it had its own small private balcony with table and chairs. The view of the sunset...

Cambria is the most delightful place to stay, Moonstone Bay is surreal. Sand Pebbes Inn was a real pleasure to stay in, perfect in every way, a place I shall remember for the rest of my life. Had dinner at the Sows Ear Cafe, it was the most quintessential restaurant, food was very well cooked and full of flavour. One...

Spent two nights here - a perfect spot to attend an event inland at Atascadero. We wanted to enjoy the ocean and this is a wonderful place to do just that. Long beach walks each morning, the short distance to Hearst Castle and the proximity to the Sea Chest restaurant just a couple doors down - all good things. While...

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We love how close Cambria is to wine country, but nothing compares to staying at the beach! So many great day trips in our county from Ragged Point to Avila Beach for whale watching...of course, you can always watch the coastline and see them as the journey along their migration routes.

Booked one night at a good off season rate and took an offered upgrade to balcony oceanfront on arrival. Very pleased that we did, well furnished room with great views over the road to the ocean and sunset (till the fog rolled in). Hottub and bathroom were fine but a little bland compared to the nicely decorated main room. Picked...

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
