My husband and I were very pleased with the Fireside Inn. Nice room, great view, with our own little patio and chairs to relax and watch the ocean. The room was clean with plenty of amenities. Loved being able to hop across the road and take a beach walk, and just a 2 minute drive to town. We would definitely... More

Quaint little motel. Had a beach front suite, bought a bottle of wine from reception and sat out side and watched the sunset. Walked to a nice restaurant up the road recommended by the reception staff.

We stopped here for a night on our way from San Francisco to L.A. It was comfortable and located right on the beach. Also convenient to tour Hearst Castle nearby. Booked the king room w/ fireplace, patio and view of ocean--it's very romantic! There is also a path across the street to walk along the beach with beautiful views. Breakfast... More

We stayed in this inn for two nights and found the room (king w/patio) to be large and comfortable. The "patio" is somewhat of a misnomer as it is a bricked area with two chairs and a table, directly in the parking lot. You are literally a few feet from your parked car - not what I would call a...

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Loud talking by housekeeping is unacceptable the staff has been talked to. There is no smoking allowed on our patios or on the property, we do have larger community patios to enjoy and these patios over look the ocean. As we here on the central rarely hit temperatures over the mid... More
