Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach

Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stayed here for the 2nd time two weeks ago. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quite spacious and the beds very comfortable. We also had a fireplace in our room which was a nice touch. Our room was away from the road which made it very quiet. The also have a very nice breakfast in the morning with eggs, sausage, hot oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, bagels, muffins, DIY waffles and 3 types of cereals.

The pool is heated and clean. It is in an outstanding location. You literally walk across the street (which isn't too busy to cross) and you are on the beach. And the beach has a nice boardwalk along.

I will stay here every time I stay in Cambria.

Room Tip: Get a room without a patio- They are cheaper and less noise. Some patios face the parking lot anywa...

Harold B,

It is great to read to such a nice review! We get many compliments on the comfort of our beds and the hot breakfast and we are always very happy when our guests notice our superior guest services. Glad you also enjoyed the best spot on Moonstone Beach Drive to access the beach and bluffs. Please let us know when you would like to return!

Very nice place to stay on Moonstone Beach. Large comfortable room with a gas fireplace and a small patio right off the parking lot. The pool is heated and clean as is the spa, much enjoyed by the children. Motel-type buffet breakfast was OK, coffee, tea and apples available all day long. Friendly and helpful staff. The best thing is the ocean with the boardwalk directly across the road.
Would come back.

This is an older very well maintained property. The location right across from the ocean is very beautiful. We stayed in a standard room which had a gas fireplace but no patio.The bathroom Is small. The accommodations were quite adequate for one night. Beds were very comfortable.
The continental breakfast was the usual fare, nicely presented and the coffee was quite good. All in all it is a nice, well managed place and we would definitely stay there again.

We truly enjoyed our visit. Staff in home away from home is everything. Very nice people and that was on top of the ocean views, closeness of the ocean, restaurants. There was something for everyone at the breakfast. No complaints at all except we couldn't stay longer

Room Tip: If you want a patio, pay the extra and get those that face the ocean. The others face the front end...

My husband and I needed a room for 1 night. We had travelled all day and we're tired when we arrived at the Fireside Inn. We thought it was a Best Western hotel based on some literature. It turned out to be a Pacifica Hotel instead. The front desk clerk said he had a room available. He wrote on a piece of paper $299. He said that was the regular price, but he was willing to let us have it for $199. Since we were tired and I didn't have immediate access to the internet, we said we would take the room. We had tickets to the Hearst Castle evening tour and had little time to get settled. It was 5:00 p.m. and the room was still being cleaned. The maid was spraying it with an air freshener which was quite unpleasant. I had to open the screen door to air out the room. The room was adequate but certainly not a $300 room. If the front desk clerk had been honest and gave us the real room rate (online $159-189), we would not have felt cheated. Pacifica Hotels...never again.g

Sybil275,

I am so sorry to read that you were disappointed with your stay as we pride ourselves on superior service at the Fireside Inn. We do offer three different room types so that could be why there was a misunderstanding with respect to the rate. We’d love the opportunity to make it up to you. Please call me directly at 805-927-8661 and I will be happy to discuss further.

Sincerely,

Justin Friend

Peaceful and memorable! This place was my husband and my first time in over 10 years since we had been back.
The people are just as nice as 10 years ago at the front desk, really, really appreciated them, including the staff around the premises. Place got warm quickly with heater on and fireplace. Nice room with patio outside. Patio is great if cars aren't all driving up, then it's too much exhaust. Respectable, real breakfast with eggs and yogurt, that was serve yourself - very decent. We saw many with children and place seemed safe enough, yet like any place, we would not ever leave our children alone. Safety is a lifestyle, so a shout out to our children, who are healthy, loved, patient, smart and thriving in college now. Justin and Renee were delightful and kind.

We met some nice people named Dan & Linda. We were wonderfully treated. Yes it is far if you are from Orange County. We probably will be better to take a train next go-around. We had a different room than we planned for, yet they made up for it in other ways.
We are blessed to have had the one night there. Not everybody can stay $150 or $200 a nite for more than a nite, so it's really important to receive the winter sales or just unannouced specials, to hopefully stay 2 or 3 nites. We are planning our return there already. Thanks!

Room Tip: Check ahead to be sure you get that ocean room with your reservation,.
