THe fireplace was really nice in the room. The location was perfect for walking to the beach and watching the waves. We had a nice breakfast. The staff was really friendly and very helpful finding a nice hike nearby.

We stayed at this hotel for a night on our drive from LA to San Francisco. What a beautiful location--and close to Hearst Castle! We loved the charming little town of Cambria--shops, restaurants and boardwalk along the beach. The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable and the family loved the large, heated pool. We would definitely recommend for future visitors.

This was a very beautiful area with a fantastic ocean view. They had two luggage racks in the room, Marriott has only one. The water was $1.50, Marriott's is $6.00. The breakfast was just wonderful with each item in plentiful amounts. We are thinking of returning and staying for 2 weeks. It was the nicest Best Western we have stayed...

Probably more like a 3.5 star. Great service. Free breakfast including eggs, sausage, and waffles. We received fresh baked cookies at check in...a nice touch. Wonderful view of the shore and saw harbour seals in the morning. Would definitely stay here again. Fireplace in the room. Large rooms. Wifi included.

The Moonstone beach location of the Fireside Inn in Cambria can't be beat. Its directly across from the boardwalk with easy access to the bluffs and the beach. We enjoyed viewing the otters from the boardwalk in early morning and early evening. As an added bonus, this end of Moonstone Beach Drive is also the quietest. The hotel is clean,...

This was our first stop on a journey down the southern coast on our Harley Davidson motorcycles. What a accommodating Inn. Room was clean and had a great view of the Pacific ocean from our courtyard. Everyone was pleased with the staff and continental breakfast in the morning.

This hotel was a nice hotel for an overnight in Cambria. Great location across from the water. I am used to very nice hotels and have a high standard. The rooms are spacious and clean.

Moonstone Beach was a great find. We were not even looking to stay here but I got sick on our drive and we had to find a place for me to lay down. I have panic attacks and was pretty sick. The Best Western had rooms available for me and my husband and son. Very comfortable rooms with a fire...
