We spent one night in this charming little hotel. The lady from the front desk was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in front of the beach and a 10 minute drive from Hearst Castle. Breakfast was good and the room was clean and comfortable.

I asked for an ocean view room and was not disappointed. My wife and I were given Room 131 which is right across from the boardwalk and is featured on their brochure. Along with 6 or 7 other rooms, it also had a patio facing the ocean. The Inn provided binoculars for us to borrow and had a swimming pool...

I only stayed here for one night with my two sisters and cousins.

Cambria hotels right on moonstone beach are quite expensive and when I found this one for a more reasonable price I was wondering if the quality would be up to snuff. It was great, the staff was very friendly, gave us maps to the little town of cambria, fresh cookies on check in and a very nice complimentary continental breakfast....

Fireside Inn is across the street from Moonstone Beach. The entire area is very peaceful. The rooms at Fireside were spacious and comfortable. We had a fireplace in our room. We will definitely return for another relaxing weekend. Be aware, though, there is no cell service in the area.

The first room we booked was not as expected, so we complained and were given an ocean front room. We could only have it for one night so we changed again for the seconds night. The second room had a Jacuzzi, so that was good. It is quiet and did serve a good breakfast. The road it is on has...

We booked two rooms here in the midst of a serious heat wave in California. Even at the beach it was nearly 100. Thank goodness for ocean breezes and a cool evening. We had a minor problem with our standard room upon check-in and it was quickly "fixed" by the manager upgrading us to a room with a small patio....
