Room was worn out in every way so just does Not seem clean. There were bugs in our room too. Patios are Not private they just have a three foot shrub between them. Breakfast was out of about 5-6 items and they didn’t care to refill. One poor lady was waiting 15 minutes for

The Fireside Inn on Moonstone Beach is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing, quiet, and romantic get away. Highly recommend staying in one of their ocean view rooms with private patios where you can drink coffee in the morning and wine in the evenings

we had a room with a full view and it was great to sit out there and enjoy the ocean view. Our room was clean but on the small side. The furniture was somewhat worn looking, not terrible, but for the price I was paying, I expected something better than furniture that would

the place is tired and for the price, it makes it pricey for what you get. pool and hot tub area are nice but the rooms need redoing and a touch of TLC. Breakfast room is ordinary, and the staff was unwelcoming when I arrive for coffee 10 minutes prior to closing and was told

This was a lovely place to stay. We travelled up from the chaos of LA and were so happy to find this spot. On arrival the staff were lovely and welcoming and gave us some information on the recent road closures on the route we were taking the following day. Beautiful spot right

Pet friendly!
Looking from the patio outside someones room to the Ocean, across the street.
Large room.. The refrigerator is sitting next to TV. Good for a few beers and small food
Actually the two best restaurants are in town, and very romantic. Madeline's is divine and the Sows Ear is divine. Service is great and the food was phenomenal. This last trip to Madeline's we had the special soup de jour which was Golden Mushroom! It was heavenly. I could of made a whole meal of it. I had the stuffed chicken breast and the honey had the Gumbo. The chef here is trained in New Orleans and worth every penny. The owner was fabulous and checked on us frequently. The Sows Ear is just as wonderful. LOTS of food. I had the short rib which in now was was small. Lovely time here. Make Reservations at both. On Moonstone I prefer the the Moonstone grill over the Sea Chest. The Sea chest is a wait, and you have to start lining up around 4:30 outside until they open the doors, and they do not take reservations. A short drive to Cayucos (10 mins.) there is a lovely new place called "The Grill". They serve family, but the food is upscale and delicious. At sunset here it is beautiful. You dine on a covered patio with heaters, but in no means is it dingy. It is beautifully lit and romantic. Enjoy!

Hi Do you have air conditioning?
I don't know if we did or not. We never needed it so I did not look for air conditioning. I do remember the oscillating tower fan but we did not need that either. It was very comfortable there.

They had a microwave in the breakfast room and that room remains open until the pool closes at 10pm because it gave us restroom access from the pool.

"Pay for a room with a patio"
"Noise from traffic is higher with rooms on the east side of the facility as a highway is on the other side of the property fence."
"Any of the ocean view rooms would be great."
"Ocean front rooms offer the most privacy, may not be worth the extra expense."
"Demand a room with a patio, avoid rooms at back with internal access."
