Stayed here for three days and really enjoyed the room which included its own fireplace. Great linens and Philosophy brand toiletries. The hotel faces the ocean which is a short walk across the road. Some rooms have private patios. There are communal ones if not with chairs to relax on. The free breakfast was decent but we found the room...

The location of of the Fireside Inn is excellent; however, the view from the room is dependent on the type of room chosen. We did not understand from the website that the definition of the type of room (Standard King) meant that our view would be of Highway 1 not the beautiful shore view highly advertised on the website. We...
