Rooms at the Fireside Inn are comfortable and clean; some have a direct view of the beach and the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Each of these latter are complimented by a small patio where one can unwind with a good book and perhaps some wine and cheese, all while listening to the sound of the pounding surf a few hundred feet...

We stopped here for the night on our drive up the coast. Very nice and clean hotel and we even had a fireplace in our room, which we did use! This hotel is across the road from the ocean. There is a very nice boardwalk for exploring along the water. It is a nice peaceful area. Staff was very friendly...

Since I was a stressed-out wreck, my husband suggested that I go the Moonstone Beach alone, spend the day on the beach collecting moonstones (nearly impossible, but I got to pick through the pebbles and keep the pretty ones), gave me a red plastic sand castle bucket with a bright yellow plastic shovel, and I reserved an ocean front room...

Last stop on our very foggy journey down Highway 1. Pulled into Fireside Inn and was greeted warmly at the front desk. Received room key, directions to room, and recommendations for dinner. Did I mention the fog? I had no idea we were right across the street from a pier and the boardwalk until the next morning. This section of...

We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday afternoon. Very nice hotel clerk showed us room. We loved it - front of hotel with little patio across from ocean. While it was expensive it was worth it. Very clean, upscale interior and they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and 2 cookies each. Also breakfast included scrambled eggs and...

We spent four nights in a standard king room with a comfortable sitting area with a fireplace. We were warmly greeted with cookies and a friendly welcome. The inn has an abundant, full hot breakfast with many choices. The location was perfect for walking on the boardwalk or beach where we saw seals basking on the rocks, dolphins, and explored...

Best overnight trip of our life! Such a gorgeous room with fireplace and lovely patio facing the ocean. We arrived an hour early and our room was ready so we relaxed on our private patio, watched all the cute little hummingbirds buzzing around, listened to the crashing waves, and enjoyed our free "welcome" cookies. Then we crossed the street and...

We chose this one-story, beach hotel because of its close proximity to Hearst Castle. We arrived after dark and left early the next morning so did not get to take advantage of the beach across the street or the patio attached to our room. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Room was dark as it did not have good...

Nice little hotel across from the beach. Size of room was very nice and quiet, and very comfortable bed. There's a nice walking path alongside bluff and an easy walk to a couple of nice restaurants. For the money, I wished it was a little more updated. It needs to be remodeled for sure, but the rooms are clean. I...
