I have stayed at the Fireside Inn a few times now, and each time I am given a great, clean, modernized room for a very good price. The location of the hotel is perfect, just a block away from the Embarcadero. I can walk there and not need to find parking on the Embarcadero. The owners are always very welcoming... More

We were in San Luis Obispo for the weekend. Stayed in another hotel in SLO on Friday night and wanted to stay in Morro Bay on Saturday night. We only needed the room for one night. I read the reviews and thought I'd take a chance...it was a mistake.....$200 down the drain. We were allowed early check in, at 1PM,... More

Our rooms were charming with fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Freshly painted and clean. Walking distance to many resturants and a laundery mat. Good shower. Working refrigerator. Only one coffee pod for morning coffee, but near coffee shops. Fan in bathroom weak. Great access to plugs for electronic devices. Motion sensors on lighting. Windows open easily for fresh air.

It was really nice & clean. Family owned and operated. Convenient location. Newly remodeled. Not your typical hotel but it fits right in with the small towns theme. Try it out. The breakfast isn't a lot to choses from but given the situational stay its great. (Vacation not "wake & and need a convenient quick departure.")

Room 211 is very large, with plenty of seating and two queen beds. Very comfortable. Gas fireplace we won't use. View of the Rock. Very clean. Checked in efficiently, being given this big room at a very reasonable rate through bookings.com. Microwave, coffeemaker and frig. High score is for value and comfort. Decor pleasant.

We spent one night here on our journey up the coast. The price was right for the night and was significantly less than other local competitors. Like the other motels in the area seem, this place is old and nothing fancy. I'm a big believer in taking things for what they are. Recognize you are not staying in the Four... More

We booked this hotel because of the great price!! And it turned out to be such a cute hotel, and very cozy. It is also close to the downtown area, which makes it great for having a good time!! The staff is also very friendly!

We stayed in this motel for one night. When we arrived at approximately 13.00 hrs our room was not yet available. The man at the reception told us that he would have it available within 45 minutes. We could leave our car in the Motel parking lot and do some sight seeing on the Morro Bay Embarcadero. This street is... More

We have stayed at the Fireside Inn a number of times over the years. This overnight stay was the best yet. The rooms had been painted with new windows and accessories. The rooms are large with microwaves and refrigerators. The inn is within one block of the Embarcadero and walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants on the water... More
