I was actually looking forward to sitting out on the patio of my hotel room here and enjoying the sound of the surf. The truth of the matter is that Moonstone Drive runs for about 1.5 miles, with wall-to-wall lodging choices. Not one of them have private beaches, as the lenghty boardwalks across the road are all public, being closed...

Best Western on Moonstone Beach Rd in Cambria, CA is a lovely location directly across the road from one of the nicest beach walks on the central coast. The rooms are large, beds comfy and breakfast is fresh and yummy. A perfect location to visit Hearst Castle, hang out in Cambria, and do some local wine tasting. I will stay...

My husband and I have been vacationing in Cambria since we got married (15 years and counting). We alternate between the Fireside Inn and the Cavalier Inn at San Simeon. I have never, ever been disappointed staying at Fireside Inn. Right across the street is Moonstone Beach. Love getting hot chocolate and walking along the ocean. And down the street...

Really loved being right across from the ocean and the room was large with a nice fireplace. The bed was very comfortable and everything was perfect. The location was ideal to visit Cambria and Hearst Castle. What a cute little town! I would definitely stay here again.

Our room was nice with a fire place. The room was average size with a king size bed. People at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The ocean is right across the street which has a boardwalk for walking and access to the beach. We even seen some sea lions resting on the rocks. We plan on coming back...

We really enjoyed our stay. We liked that we were able to go across the street to the ocean and take a walk on the trail. Staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of amenities. Very, very clean. Breakfast was great!! We plan on coming back next year.

Got in late from our ride down the coast and were really pleasantly surprised. Very accommodating assistant manager greeted us and helped with dinner suggestions and some background on Cambria. Rooms were beautifully kept and had gas fireplaces. The boardwalk and ocean just across the street were gorgeous too. Breakfast was better than expected. Would absolutely stay here anytime.

Accomodations were exceptional, location breathtaking. An extraordinary staff (Ranay) graciously met our every need and made us feel like family. The only business trip I have returned from feeling rested and peaceful.

We have stayed at the Best Western Fireside Inn in the past and have always had a pleasant experience. This visit was no exception. The location of the hotel is convenient to the places we like to visit. It's nice and cozy to have a fireplace in our room. That is an extra plus that we have not gotten in...

We stayed one night at this Best Western and were very satisfied. The room was large and clean. I wasn't thrilled that they had bottled water but it was for purchase where most motels would offer the water as a courtesy. The morning breakfast was usual for a motel stay but the room in which they held it was a...
