Anywhere else, Fireside would probably get an Average Plus from me. Lovely large rooms, gas fireplaces, recently updated furniture and bath, welcoming but disengaged front desk staff, cute breakfast room (with waffles!!!), but a little motel-esque.
HOWEVER, if you have never been to Moonstone Beach, you could stay overnight in a dumpster and call it the Ritz. The Fireside is a lovely spot -- romantic, cozy and very clean; Moonstone Beach is one of those rare spots on the face of the Earth with little to compare to its natural beauty. What is most spectacular is that the good State of California has seen fit to build a very beautiful, organic and fully accessible walkway across the dunes and cliff tops of Moonstone Beach, replete with viewing platforms from which you can gawk at the stunning scenery and even watch the otters/sea lions/water mammals play in the surf. Sunset on Moonstone followed by a night at Fireside is one of the most romantic things you could possibly do. Squeeze dinner at the Black Cat Cafe in between those two things and, my my my.... Romance made.
Just minutes from Hearst Castle and downtown Cambria, which has several good restaurants.
