Right across the road from a cove on Moonstone Beach, one minute walk to the boardwalk and overlook with seals, somewhat insulated from the hustle further toward town. Room attractive & clean, though not fully serviced on the second night of our three-night stay -- ice bucket not tended to, cups not replaced towels not removed. If you must have... More

We stayed here purely because it was close to Hearst Castle. We were delighted by the location, right across from the beach and a step away from the boardwalk. Our room was spacious and clean. The swimming pool is a bit small but sunny. Breakfast was good, staff helpful. We would stay here again.

My wife had a problem in the night, fell and gashed her head on a nightstand and went to the office to get assistance. The brochure advertised the office was open 24 hours a day with coffee, etc. She could not raise anyone using the doorbell on the outside of the office. Had to go next door to the Otter... More

We stopped at this motel just prior to the drive up route 1 to see Big Sur. We arrived in the early afternoon and realized that the Hearst Castle was only 6 miles up the road so we went. The room was very clean. Bed was super comfortable with great pillows. There was a gas fireplace in the room which... More

I loved, LOVED this hotel! First, the location- you can't beat it. It's right along Moonstone Beach which has a great boardwalk you can walk along. Second, the room-- where to begin! The room was bigger than my first apartment! There are beautiful vaulted ceilings, a jacuzzi tub, fireplace and really nice robes and toiletries. The staff was very helpful... More

The family planned a last minute fourth of July trip, wanting to have some quiet times and avoid huge crowds yet still have the traditional Fourth fireworks and trappings glorious enough to satisfy our 9 year old travel critic. We were lucky to find a corner room available at the Fireside Inn with a small outdoor patio facing Moonstone Beach.... More

Loved this hotel...the best on our week long trip to Southern and Central California. As soon as I hit the bed I felt like I was in a luxurious setting. Extremely comfortable and so were the pillows. Enjoyed the lovely breakfast setting beside the pool and Jacuzzi which I used both nights I was there. What a beautiful area and... More

This is such a great, clean and charming place and would recommend everyone to use this location when they can. The room with the fireplace and great decor made you feel like you were on vacation and very comfortable. Not like a normal change style.

I/We have stayed at the Fireside Inn at least 5 times. Several times we were there because we went to Cambria to celebrate our anniversary.

Made a quick trip to the Paso Robles, California wine region and wanted to stay by the ocean in nearby Cambria, CA. Chose the Best Western Fireside Inn as they had competitive rates and a great location. I was not disappointed. Excellent service, full breakfast included and they allowed me a one hour extension on check-out so that I could... More
