Our ocean view room was fantastic! Just open the sliding door and listen to the ocean. The location is close to the wooden walk way that goes along the ocean for miles. The Staff went out of their way to accomadate us when the computer mixed our room up with another. The breakfast is well supplied with fresh scrambled eggs... More

One of the best stops on our West Coast trip. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location can't be beat. Ocean right across the street. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was excellent. It easily was worth $50 for the three of us if we went to a restaurant. Patty was very helpful and accommodating. Decided to stay... More

Cycling north on father-son outing, we stopped at this delightful spot across from the beach and 3 doors from excellent restaurant. Really comfortable accommodations, welcome hot tub, and gracious service. Highly recommend.

We spent a night here as part of a tour from San Francisco to Los Angeles. After a great stay in Monterey, this was a disappointment. The location is lovely just across from the beach and the staff are friendly. However, the rooms are dark making it difficult to read at night and there is no A/C or a window... More

We were checked in by Patty, she gave us good info on the area and things to do around the area. It's close to Hearst Castle and the Elephant seal rookery. The ocean is just across the road and the rooms have a patio, where you can listen to the crashing waves. The rooms are tastefully appointed, we were just... More

We stayed here over the weekend, and it was great! Clean and comfortable and the staff were extremely pleasant and accommodating! They even helped us get reservations at an amazing and romantic restaurant! (Madeleine's) We will certainly stay there again!

Stayed there for 2 days in December 2015. The staff was tremendous - very helpful and responsive to any request. The property itself is nearly identical to a half dozen or so up and down Moonstone Beach - glorified motels with fantastic views and beach access. But the beds were comfortable, and the free continental breakfast was slightly better than... More

We have stayed at the Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach many times over the years, and have been, if not thrilled, at least satisfied. This last stay in December was not up to par. First, we paid $274 a night for a standard hotel room farthest from the ocean, way too expensive for the type of lodging it is. The... More

We got a great deal for the Fireside Inn on cyber Monday. We didn't have an ocean view room, because we needed a 2 queen beds, but room 120 had its own little patio where you can drink your coffee and glimpse the ocean. The most impressive thing about this place is the reception and their desire to give you... More

Arrived in time for a magnificent sunset! My elegantly arranged suite-like bedroom induced a tranquil sleep after a long drive. I did not use the fireplace, as pretty as it was. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, and even made a dinner reservation for me at a near-by 3-star level French restaurant.
