A recent stay at Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach was comfy and peaceful. Our rooms each had fireplaces and resort style bedding and patios that were perfect for a morning cup of coffee while viewing the seagulls as they dove into the ocean mist, just across the street. The staff were friendly and made sure we were comfortable. We will...

We stayed one night at the Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach after visiting Hearst Castle. When we checked in we were greeted with homemade cookies which we took with us as we walked along the boardwalk path above the ocean to stretch our legs. The path is directly across relatively quite roadway. The room was large and comfortable, with a...

The Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach is located at the quiet end of the drive along the bay at Cambria. Right across the road is an entrance to the wonderful walkway along the shore. The Inn itself is comfortable and very friendly but the location is even more of an asset. Sunset views are tremendous but you also need to...

We had a great time!! We were tracing our 45 years together in a great marriage that happened at the Madonna Inn in June 1972. That was almost a half century ago.I still have not lost the love of the central coast of California! This was our third straight year of enjoying the Fireside Inn. A great price,always a friendly...

Perfect location with nice pool and hot tub. My daughter goes to school at Cal poly San Luis Obispo. We had a perfect little getaway for the weekend. It was just what she needed to get away and relax. Access to the boardwalk on the beach was perfect. We had a nice complementary breakfast every morning.

We stayed at the Fireside Inn because they are pet friendly (for a fee). Pet friendly rooms do not have a view beyond the parking lot, but that is ok. Our room was large, clean, and we can't wait to visit again. The free breakfast was much better than a Holiday Inn Express. I would guess that our T.V. was...

I hate that. I realize it's the prerogative of non-corporate hotels/motels to set their own prices but doubling the price on "MLK" weekend seems excessive. I'm sure the hot-tub would have been lovely but it closes at 10p, which is when I arrived. The room was clean but cold (Maybe this FL girl just couldnt figure out how to work...

This is wonderful place to stay if you are exploring the coast, Hearst Castle, seal beach, etc. We were there at the beginning of May--found out that it was right before the busy season, so we were able to experience it without being crowded. This and the other hotels on this strip are just across from the beach, so it...

Rooms are very clean & large. Gas fire place a romantic touch! Hot tub clean and hot. Outside patios in larger rooms are nice to sit outside for cocktails ( most face parking lot but a couple look at ocean). Hot breakfast excellent with lots of choices from scrambled eggs to hot oatmeal. Staff very nice.

Our stay at Fireside Inn was so very lovely. I have been going to Moonstone for the past 13 years to watch the Elephant Seals give birth every January.
