“A charming inn with an amazing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We just returned from a trip up the central coast that included one night at the Best Western Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach. It is a gem of a property! The rooms are spacious, nice-looking and quiet. We are a family of five, so we had two double beds and a rollaway. There was plenty of room for all of us. We used the pool and the jacuzzi. We enjoyed the morning breakfast. We walked down the street to a local restaurant and had an amazing dinner. Before we checked out in the morning we walked across the street and walked along the beach path. Simply the most beautiful coastline right across the street from this lovely little inn. Special thanks to Justin, the general manager, for the hospitality. We will recommend this place to family and friends. We have no complaints.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a patio.

Great stay at the Fireside Inn in Cambria. We were very pleased with our room. Very large and very quite.
Being able to walk across the street and meander on the Moonstone boardwalk was a joy.
Looking down at the coves one can see Sea otters and other sea life. Then it was sunset. There are several old log benches along the boardwalk which are great to sit in and watch the sun slowly drop into the sea.

Beautiful, quiet location, nice view. Well maintained facility with nice amenities including pool and breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was especially nice with quite a variety of items available. Upon checking in you are greeted by congenial staff and given some tasty cookies-great after a long road trip. A nice walking trail is just across the street and easily accessible. A computer is also available for guest use in the lobby. Hearst Castle is only about a 15 minute drive from here, as is a beach where one can view elephant seals sunning themselves. I will definitely stay here again in the future as it is a great value for the price, and a very pleasant experience

Wonderful, clean, and well run property. Stayed for 2 nights and could have easily stayed longer. We had a fab time and used the facilities to the fullest. They have a nice breakfast room near the pool, which we also used, and it was quite a spread of food options. We walked right across to the walking path that fronts the ocean....heaven. We even looked up restaurants to dine at using their lobby computer with internet. Watch out for the hungry squirells, however! The rooms were plenty big. The staff helped us with our request for more towels and linens on the spot. The beds were very comfortable! Overall, you will not be disappointed to stay here!

This hotel is in an excellent location at the southern end of the Big Sur right across the street from the beach. We had minor issues at check-in as we had not informed them in advance that we had a dog. However, they were able to accommodate us and upgraded us to a beautiful, and dog-friendly room. We were also pulling a trailer which created problems as their parking lot is very small and there is no safe parking on the street. Again, they were able to accommodate us; however, I would advise any traveller to let them know ahead if you require a dog friendly room or if you need extra space for parking. We were fortunate that the hotel was not full and they were able to make room for us. We appreciate the management's effort to accommodate us and to give us an upgrade to such a beautiful room.
The room which we were given was large, clean, extremely comfortable and had an excellent view of the ocean across the street. We will definitely return to this hotel next time we drive the Californian coastline.

Room Tip: If a room overlooking the ocean is available, it's well worth the price!

We had a nice room with a patio looking across the street to the ocean bluffs. Very nice. Only issues were when people checked in and out as we were right across from the office, and when people entered the hotel area letting the doors slam. Bathroom was small and tight. But room it self was very nice. Hotel staff were great. The cleaning people were excellent.

Room Tip: This hotel was down towards the end more of moonstone beach, would stay up the road more for easier...

The room was clean well furnished and silent. Great shower. Parking area near the room. It was just one night but was a great stay. Fantastic sunset in a clear day. It's far from Cambria downtown, but has a good bar and restaurant in the neighborhood.
