Nice clean rooms pretty much as advertised, and the fireplace was nice to sit beside and sample the local wine and cheese. Reception staff were a were a bit rude when they asked for payment on arrival. I said we had paid 5-6 months ago online, but they said that couldn't be right as they never charge online, and they...

Very nice quaint hotel. Big rooms, gas fireplace in room, great hot complimentary breakfast in am. Nice pool and spa. Only issue that was not well publicized was lack of AC in rooms. We stayed in late July. Thankfully, it was cool at night so we simply opened window with little noise outside. It wasn't a big problem for us,...

We are a frequent visitor to the CA Central Coast. Our stay at the Fireside was very disappointing. Although it is located in an excellent ocean side area the rooms have very poor ventilation and were not as welcoming as area competitors. It does give you good access to area attractions and the ocean. It is also dog friendly.

This was a quaint hotel. Very few rooms actually have a view so keep that in mind when booking. Nice location on the water. The major downside was that our room was very warm when we arrived from being closed up all day, and it never cooled off. Since this location is usually cooler, there is no air conditioning in...

We drove from Los Angeles to Cambria in 4h along hwy 1. Fireside Inn was a perfect stop on our way to San Fransisco. Nice staff, clean room, very spacious. Breakfast was included but we did not try it. Very handicap-friendly hotel. Cambrina tured out to be a nice little town worth spending a few hours in.

It is true - this is a motel-style place across from the beach. There are NO hotels on the beach in Moonstone Beach, so this is close as you can get. It is a great spot with easy access to the beautiful beach. The staff gave us tips about the best places to find moonstones and even traded a few...

Let me start by saying this is a nice hotel. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. They know the area well, and will help you with all your needs. Any issues you might have they strive very hard to make right. That being said... I agree with some previous reviewers... $350 a night for an (albeit upscale) MOTEL. Their...

With the beautiful backdrop of Cambria to compliment the general feel the Fireside Inn feels like coming home. Great rooms which are well appointed and well featured are very comfortable and spacious. A good breakfast with fresh waffles makes for a great start to the day before popping down to the boardwalk to look at the seals basking on the...

We had a great time, the staff was very helpful. They helped us find a couple of very nice wineries to visit. We will be making another trip back in the fall. Sitting in front of the room with a bottle of wine watching the surf... So relaxing

We paid $350.00 for this room. It is by far the worst value we have ever received in lodging. The room was dark, dated and musty. No view of the ocean. It lays out like a motel, most views are of the parking lot or other hotels, most of which looked more appealing than the Fireside Inn! The reviews are...

“We've tried the cheapest room (freeway side) and an ocean view with private patio. We enjoyed both. Depends on your budget.”
