“beautiful location”
Reviewed July 1, 2010

the hotel was nice, had a great location in Cambria, although it was a bit pricey keeping in mind that it's a 2 -star hotel... our bathroom had very little water pressure , the showe head did not work properly ..other than that , it was decent. The fireplace inside the room was very nice .

We stayed here for 5 nights to relax before going home after a 5 week road trip. The outside of this hotel belies the inside, firstly it looks more like a motel as do all of the hotels in Cambria, however, the rooms are huge,very comfortable with all amenities, and extremely quiet. I do have some gripes though, why would they make the bedroom so huge and yet the bathroom so small, 2 feet off the bedroom would not be missed but would make an enormous dfference to such a small bathroom. Also the breakfast area is far too small for the amount of guests, at times it was almost impossible to get to the buffet area, and although one could sit outside this is no use when the early morning mist is hanging cold and damp-as it is quite often. Apart from these 2 moans we were happy with our stay and had a great time exploring this part of California, we are unlikely to return but if we did we would probably stay here again.

This place is not a five star hotel but to be honest the room was very spacious and clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a picturesque rocky beach across the road. The complimentary breakfast was a typical mediocre fare, same goes for the pool. But if you are looking for a very comfortable room you will not be disappointed.

This an affordable way to enjoy the Highway 1 area and still get a nice romantic room. The nearby restaurants are yummy and some you can walk to. You are a mere few footsteps to the beach.

We were celebrating our anniversary and went to Cambria to visit Hearst Castle. We booked the regular king room with fireplace. The rooms are large with a couch, desk, big closet and more storage than a lot of hotels. The bathroom was big as well. The free breakfast was good and included make your own waffles, pastries, breads, english muffins, croissants, bagels with cream cheese, fruit, yogurt, cereals, coffee, tea, juices and hard boiled eggs. You can eat in the breakfast room or take on a tray to your room or eat outside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a computer in the lobby that you can use and menu's for the local restaurants. The wi-fi worked decent in the room, but my AT&T phone did not work in the room at all. We enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi as well. We would stay here again.

My sister and I chose the Fireside Inn because we went to the Hearst Castle. It's in a beautiful location on the Pacific Ocean called Moonstone Beach. The hotel room was very pleasant with nice furniture, and Wi-fi worked well in the room. My AT&T cell phone did not work, however. The breakfast room is cheerful and roomy, in comparison to some of the other hotels we encountered on our trip. Breakfast was good, and you were able to make yourself waffles. We actually hated to leave this little spot of heaven, but we were on the move and actually stayed at 5 different hotels during our vacation. This was our favorite.

We stayed here one night before going to Hearst Castle in April and enjoyed the stay. Rooms are nice and clean but are somewhat average. The continental breakfast was the best thing about this hotel, they offered a better selection than other places we stayed at.
