This little inn was lovely. Right across from Moonstone Beach and just minutes away from Hearst Castle, the hotel provided the perfect mid-way stop along the PCH. The kids loved watching the surfers and splashing in the waves. Breakfast was great and hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your review of Sand Pebbles Inn. We are happy to hear what a great experience you had with us. We hope the kids had a chance to explore the tide pools. They are fascinating little pockets of marine life right along our coast!

Moonstone beach is the best place to stay and wald the boardwalk by the ocean. Sand Pebbles Inn is a super place to stay. Ft office is polite and friendly, rooms are neat and clean, wine reception and breakfast are excellent. Just right for 2 nite stay

This hotel is a sister hotel to the Blue Dolphin Inn and is very similar in lay out and style. Although the hotel and rooms feel a little older than the Blue Dolphin it is well taken care of and updated with fireplace, flat screen TV, free WiFi and soothing colors of blue and camel. The beds and pillows are...

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
