Ok, so I know this same question has been asked before, so I apologize in advance. I like the idea of the evening wine reception at the Pelican Inn, and the breakfast looks better, but the pool looks nicer at the Fireside. We'll be traveling with our 8 year old daughter early August.
Does one have a better location at Moonstone Beach than the other? We probably won't book an ocean view room, just to save $$. We'll only be there one night traveling from Carmel to Santa Barbara. Plan to take our time w/ the drive along the coast and then see Hearst Castle first thing in the morning.
Any (more) thoughts? Thanks in advance!!
