Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach

This Best Western is more of a motel style but right across the street from wonderful boardwalk on the Ocean. Terrific sunsets! Very convenient place to stay if you are visiting the Hearst Castle. This was the first Best Western during our trip down the coast that did not have a washing machine/dryer but found a good size laudromat in town. Rooms are large, breakfast is good but you have to take your food back to your room as dining area is way too small for the amount of rooms they have.

This Best Western is very clean, with huge rooms. The wi-fi reception is excelent. Robes are provided, the bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. There is a bath as well as a shower and they provide a decent sized soap. Biscuits and fruit are available at reception but there is a $1.50 charge for bottled water!! Everything here appeared to be of good quality,. Breakfast area is small for the number of rooms they have and many people took their food back to their room for this reason. We were unfortunate to arrive and leave in the fog, so didn't see much of the beach area. Would highly recommend a visit to Hearst Castle while you are in the area.

took a punt on best western in california and it paid off. Great location, moonstone beach is well worth a diversion of PCH. typical USA motel style place, helpful staff, good breakfast which was rare in my 3 week trip, and good bar and grill five mins walk away. Pool too - what more can you ask for.

We enjoyed our stay at the Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach. The beach view and in-room fireplace were big hits with the family. This was our overnight stop during a very quick two-day PCH drive starting in Monterey. The beach is right across the street and has a nice, quiet boardwalk that runs about 1/2 mile to the south, with additional boardwalk trails to the north and west. This is a very interesting beach, with two nice restaurant choices within walking distance - go out early, though, or you may have a long wait! The room was well appointed and clean. We enjoyed the fireplace and the patio seating area with nice landscaping and flowers right outside. The morning hummingbird show was particularly enjoyable! Bathroom fixtures worked well but were beginning to show their age. Nothing to be concerned about, however. The desk attendant was very pleasant and informative during check-in and while discussing meal and beach options. The breakfast buffet was fairly typical but good. The outdoor pool and hot tub looked inviting on a cool evening, but we did not use them this visit. We stayed on a Friday, so paid a premium price for our room. If you have the flexibility during high season, try for a midweek stay during your PCH drive.

THe fireplace was really nice in the room. The location was perfect for walking to the beach and watching the waves. We had a nice breakfast. The staff was really friendly and very helpful finding a nice hike nearby.

We stayed at this hotel for a night on our drive from LA to San Francisco. What a beautiful location--and close to Hearst Castle! We loved the charming little town of Cambria--shops, restaurants and boardwalk along the beach. The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable and the family loved the large, heated pool. We would definitely recommend for future visitors.

This was a very beautiful area with a fantastic ocean view. They had two luggage racks in the room, Marriott has only one. The water was $1.50, Marriott's is $6.00. The breakfast was just wonderful with each item in plentiful amounts. We are thinking of returning and staying for 2 weeks. It was the nicest Best Western we have stayed in. Thank You for a nice vacation.
