Sand Pebbles Inn
“My wife and I had a great anniversary stay with you. We plan on coming back for another "staycation" (we live in Santa Maria) and getting a full view suite. Totally refreshing experience.” —Mark P., Santa Maria, CA

“We arrived very late and our room's door was invitingly open and a fire was burning in the fireplace. It was most welcoming, and we cannot wait to return.” —Anne G., Phoenix, AZ

“Everyone was friendly, gracious, and helpful, and the room was very clean and cheerful. We very much appreciate the thoughtful amenities big and small--the cookies, flashlight, microwave, and refrigerator. Thank you for a great experience.” —Lisa G., Santa Monica, CA

“Very comfortable & clean bed ... thank you for not having old saggy mattresses and mushy pillows. Makes such a big difference when you're traveling and exhausted! Bathroom (linens, shower, etc..) was clean and comfortable. Showerhead had water pressure which makes all the difference in the world! TV was not an old relic and remote worked! Loved the shutters on windows and view from room. Will definitely stay here again and again as long as cleanliness and condition of rooms are kept up.” —Mona T., Orange, CA

“We had such a nice weekend, due in part to our stay at your lovely inn. It was perfect in every way. Better than anticipated and we really appreciated the hospitality we received, along with the room & all the extras. The small touches add up in a big way to making a great trip! Thank you very much.” —Thora M., Studio City, CA

“Our honeymoon...as Seniors : ). We loved Sand Pebbles Inn. What a fabulous place and we will be back. We loved the room facing the ocean, and the fireplace. Romantic and fun. Thank you for the little wedding cake. Your desk staff is top quality. Very professional, helpful, sweet. And the breakfast was amazing. The young lady caring for the breakfast room was outstanding. She never stopped working. I'd hire her in a second, she needs to be promoted. You can trust her. Thank you for a wonderful time in Cambria. I'm so glad I found you on the internet.” —Jeff W., Las Vegas, NV

“Our stay was absolutely perfect. We will definitely return for years to come. Our room was the cleanest hotel room we have ever stayed in. We brought our little dog and were surprised to find a dog bed and dog dishes in the room as well. The breakfast was delicious!” —Tia W., Redland, CA

Castle Inn

“This place wasn't fancy, but it was exactly what we wanted for the price. Close to restaurants, we loved sitting in the Adirondack chairs and watching the sunset. The continental breakfast, again, wasn't fancy but it was just enough for us, filled us up and coffee was good too. Stayed here for our 6th anniversary two weekends ago.” —shareesmiles, Fresno, CA

“The inn is across the street from the ocean. our room on the second floor had an excellent view. The room also had a fireplace and a very comfortable bed. Our reception was quick and friendly, as was our departure. Lastly, the price was quite reasonable for the area. Hearst Castle is just up the road a few miles. We would gladly stay again.” —rlwrisk, CA

“Just got back from a night here with our grandson so we could hunt for moonstones on the beach and search the tide pools. What lovely people run this motel, I don't think even the Ritz has a manager as good as this. Although simple and small, the location couldn't be better and the view exquisite (and I live in Santa Barbara). Close enough to walk to a nice restaurant open for 3 meals a day. Right across the street from the boardwalk that runs along the cliffs and leads down to the beach. Just perfect!” —kstmetal, Santa Barbara, CA
