Direct on water. Had end room with patio with direct ocean view. Sleeping to ocean waves, fantastic. Front desk help was exceptional. Great advice for eating options. Good access to tide pools and walking along ocean.

Clean, Quiet & Comfortable

Reviewed 9 october, 2021

We stayed four nights in room #301, oceanfront with a patio. We really enjoyed the Fireside Inn. I like that there is a no pet rule now. Its harder to find this these days on Moonstone. We asked for turn down service half way through our stay and they cleaned and refreshed our room nicely. I've seen many post regarding the lack of a towel bar and I have to agree. I also think its time for daily housekeeping to return. Overall, we loved our accommodations and will be returning soon.

Relaxing stay in Moonstone Beach

Reviewed 21 september, 2021

Not sure about the negative reviews, but we had a wonderful stay at Fireside Inn. We wish we had been able to spend more time there. The rooms have been updated and the beds are very comfortable. Everything closes early in Cambria but we got some wine and cheese and we're able to enjoy the sunset from one of the tables in the patio deck - yes it was adjacent to the parking but we had a great time and enjoyed the cool breeze. I agree with one of the reviewers that the rooms could use some towel hooks in the bathroom but it did not diminish our stay. If you want an idea about the layout of the property you can check out satellite images in Google maps.

Don't get your hopes up for a luxury hotel experience - very disappointed

Reviewed 7 august, 2021

We did not receive the level of service or quality we expected from Fireside Inn, given the price and the recommendations on Trip Advisor. While the renovated rooms were comfortable and clean, the pool/hot tub area is tired and unsightly and basically in the parking lot. The room was missing essential functional design features - such as a hook next to the shower to hang towels. We were disappointed to realize the furnished "patio" was not a private space, but literally in the parking lot. Basic amenities were missing, such as shampoo/conditioner/body lotion, bath robes, and air conditioning. In order to keep the room cool, we had to keep the sliding door, which opened onto the parking lot, open, and thus didn't have any privacy. And given the dearth of dining options on Moonstone Beach, coffee or breakfast at the hotel would have added to the experience. We expected more from a hotel offering "modern hotel amenities." We were also disappointed by the restaurants recommended by the hotel.

Relaxing stay, good walks, beautiful view

Reviewed 17 july, 2021

We stayed here on Monday and Tuesday nights in July. There were 3 of us--2 stayed in an Ocean View room with patio and 1 stayed in a Traditional King room with patio. The Ocean View room was well worth the extra expense as the Traditional King patio was on the parking lot. However, the guests during our stay were not noisy or disruptive and the parking lot was fairly quiet. The rooms were very clean and welcoming. The personnel were all friendly and helpful--especially Kristin at the front desk. The view from the Ocean View room was beautiful and we enjoyed watching hummingbirds as we sat on the patio. Having stayed at several hotels on Moonstone Beach in the past, the Fireside Inn will now be our go-to place in the future.
