Visited Fireside inn after doing Internet search and although the staff was very friendly, the inn needed an uplift. It needed a renovation very soon. Right across from the beach which was excellent, but so were many other inns/motels. I booked a room with a fireplace and a patio. Patio was facing a parking lot. Not very enjoyable. Fireplace was...

We have stayed here a couple of times. This last time was for Spring Break. This was our first stay since the property converted away from Best Western. I didn't realize that it was no longer BW when I booked it, so when I checked in and found out, I was a little concerned. But my fears were unfounded. The... More

This is the most relaxing hotel I have stayed in. Being by the water and so close to the cute town of Cambria, it is a great way to unwind. The staff was so nice, especially housekeeping. It is great being able to cross the street and walk along the ocean. The sunsets are amazing and the morning breakfast is... More

Welcome/Check-in:- Efficient and functional, rather than warm and friendly Bedroom:- Originally 125 a normal double -very dark, long and thin, minimal natural light. My wife did not like this and went back to reception to see if there was anything else. We were offered by the friendly owner a reduced cost upgrade to 126, a corner room with jacuzzi bath... More

Lovely hotel with amazing views across the road from the hotel itself. You are however paying for the view as not cheap and the accommodation whilst comfortable and with several nice touches could do with updating a little. Really like the log effect fire in every room. Need to request sea view room to get a terrace, alternatively can use... More

The room was great and the included breakfast was good for the whole family. Hot and cold options with plenty of fruit available. The beach access is great and several restaurants are within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We called many hotels in the cambria area looking for not only great acommodations, but nice staff and customer service. We were so tired of cranky hotel employees that didn't care about you that we really searched for a great staff. We hit the JACKPOT at the Fireside Inn! They have mastered customer service . And you don't pay extra... More

My family and I were on a 3 week road trip up the PCH 1. We stopped here for one night during the trip and were very pleased with the hotel. While not anything extraordinary, the hotel is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and it is very moderately priced. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and boardwalk... More

We stayed here with our 2 dogs since they are a dog friendly hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a patio room facing the ocean and we really enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the ocean. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast was good - basic fare but many more choices than a continental breakfast so... More
