Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms are very clean & large. Gas fire place a romantic touch! Hot tub clean and hot. Outside patios in larger rooms are nice to sit outside for cocktails ( most face parking lot but a couple look at ocean). Hot breakfast excellent with lots of choices from scrambled eggs to hot oatmeal. Staff very nice.

Our stay at Fireside Inn was so very lovely. I have been going to Moonstone for the past 13 years to watch the Elephant Seals give birth every January. I think I have stayed at every hotel on the beach and this was a repeat stay that reminded me of what a great cozy, clean, nicely decorated place this is....

Rooms are large, comfortable and well maintained. It is a great location just across the street from the boardwalk and ocean. Our room couldn't have been more peaceful and quiet at all times of the day. The hot breakfast is nice with good variety. We will happily stay here again.

Lots of options along Moonstone Beach Dr. We had a standard room, but weather was chilly and rainy, so didn't need the patio or ocean view. Ocean is right across the street. Plenty of parking, flat screen tv with cable, comfortable bed with lots of pillows, and good complimentary breakfast. First place I've stayed with a Kehrig coffee maker. No...

In need of a personal get-away, my stay at Fireside was everything I needed: comfy, cozy quiet, and safe. The room was very clean and had all the amenities promised: TV, Keurig coffee maker and small fridge. The bed was extremely comfy! The location was perfect: directly across the street from the beach walk. There is quaint patio area where...

We were looking for a hotel close to Hearst Castle and we're having trouble finding a last minute vacancy. The Fireside Inn was available so we booked three rooms for our family. We arrived late and quickly went to bed, not realizing the splendor we would awake to. The next morning we opened our door to find the stunning view...

We were right across from the entrance to the boardwalk at the head of the beach, so that was nice. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was good, though in a very small, crowded space, so it was good it was still nice to sit outside. The evening staff was not helpful, but the daytime staff was...

First, our room had a "partial" view of the ocean. I can tell you that all of the hotels on Moonstone Beach Drive are on one side of the road, and the ocean/beach are on the opposite side. So, your views will always be somewhat muted due to distance and room location. That said, our "partial view' was just that....

Great location! Just breathtaking views! The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on local restaurants and activities. The room was clean and we enjoyed the patio that came with our room, (superior king with sleeper). The bed was not the best but adequate to say the least. (hence the 4 stars) They served a nice complimentary breakfast. I...
