Take notice of the sign in the lobby that states you can check out your room before paying for it. This place was a complete dump. First, the place does not have air conditioning and some of the rooms do not have a big front window. Our first floor room had a back sliding door that open to a main... More

We stayed at the Fireside Inn for two nights, over the 4th of July weekend. Our room was clean, had a mini fridge, a micro-wave, a hair dryer, toiletries, a coffee maker, and a cute little (fake) fireplace. There were sheer curtains as well as black out curtains on the windows, so we were able to just use the sheers... More

Our stay was terrible. The staff was not very friendly and when we asked for additional towels we were accused of having more people in the room. There was only two of us. We had a balcony view that had two loose boards and shook when you stood on them making it feel unsafe. We were there for two days... More

It was great for a quiet weekend get away. Very affordable. Clean. The beds are firm which we liked. The continental breakfast was just a danish and coffee. We preferred going to the coffee shop anyways. Best part everything was within walking distance never got in the car again after we arrived.

If you are looking for a basic, clean, comfortable, cheap place to stay overnight in Morro Bay this is ideal. Walking distance to the bay & shops. Room was large enough with micro & fridge. We stayed on a Sun night in Mar when the motel was quiet (& didn't use the wifi). The staff were friendly enough. This is... More

The good: Do not book a hotel room if you are trying to get away for a romantic weekend. This hotel is In need of major overall renovation. The walls were the thinnest we have ever experienced in a hotel. You could hear conversations of everyone in ALL the rooms that surrounded us. We thought the ceiling was going to... More

I stayed at Fireside Inn for a night over Christmas 2014. It looked decent from the outside, and location was only a block from the Morro Bay waterfront (lots of shops and restaurants), but the inside needed much improvement to even be a 2-star motel. First, they only issue a small credit card receipt, no computer printout of official hotel... More

We found this hotel expensive for what it is, however, the area is expensive, so relatively speaking it wasn't too bad. Perfectly comfortable and clean but essentially fairly basic. Quite noisy, we were next to the vending and ice machines and the road, and as there was no aircon we had to have the window open, which made it quite... More

Quant and comfortable hotel. Location was excellent. Excellent views of "the rock" and was walking distance to the town center and food and shopping. Stayed during my trip to the fair. Was affordable and the room seemed recently renovated. Room was clean and comfortable. Could feel the ocean breeze from the balcony. Breakfast was sufficient. Danishes were excellent. Staff was...
