The rooms are very nice and updated. Location is why you stay in this area...we just love the sunsets!

I loved being directly across the road from the ocean. The moon view over the ocean at 11:30 pm was incredible. The property website said plush robes were part of the experience, but no plush robes. No maid service to keep room tidy.

Great location right across from the beach and steps away from boardwalk.

Nice property across the street from Moonstone Beach. We checked in late so were stuck in the back of hotel with no balcony or ocean view. Disappointing, but still made most of it and had a nice stay here. We’ve learned from this and past experiences at boutique hotels that they assign rooms as guests check in, so it’s imperative to arrive early.

Great location

Very lovely place to stay and great quality for the price. Will definitely be back if I'm staying in Cambria again.

Location excellent. Tea and decaf not provided in room but available upon request.

Great location right by the beach, room was clean, staff was nice. Cambria is definitely a great place to visit. Although maybe for the rest rooms in side the room atleast the room I was staying in maybe some hangers for bigger towels. There was only a hanger for a smaller towels. Other than that will stay again.

The friendly staff and cleanings of the room.

Was not our first stay w/ Fireside Inn. This time there was a problem with heat in room, small wall heater didn't appear to be working. There was no water available onsite, not even in lobby or a vending machine. We understand COVID presents issues but a bottle of water seems to be within parameters. When we called front desk about heat, we were asked if we wanted another blanket. When asked if we could move rooms I was asked to call Expedia (we didn't use Expedia). When we asked about water, we were told that there is a Shell station "about a mile away" that has everything. We were scheduled for 2 nights but left after one. Seems unfortunate to lose a repeat customer.

Location was great Room was large, comfortable and clean Housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful A wonderful stay at the Fireside Inn

Remodeled rooms are modern and attractive, and the bed and bedding feel wonderful, but their cost saving equipment prevented our room from heating quickly and our shower water from being hot and comforting. These are fundamental requirements of even the most basic accommodations. Apparently, room 224 is the problem room, so whatever you do, don't stay in that room! And bring your flannel pjs! PS to hotel staff ~ telling guests to wait for more hot water to take a shower while they're on vacation and want to go out and explore, is not helpful.

The property is an older property. The screen door kept sticking. The ice machine was broke. No coffee pot. Because we booked through orbit our dog did not receive a doggy package, even though we paid an extra $40 for her to stay there. The upside there had good pillows.

Had some trouble getting the room I had reserved but the receptionist went out of her way to make it right.

We loved the location, the rooms, the fireplace in the room, the responsive staff when we needed anything. I was disappointed that you have the beautiful space for breakfast, but had no food available. It took a while to get everyone moving in the mornings and would have been nice if we could have picked up, even continental breakfast items for the kids before we got into town for breakfast. One of our rooms did not get cleaned and by the time we got back to the room to change for dinner, it was not convenient to ask for cleaning then. The staff promptly brought towels when we requested them for showers, but I’m not sure how the room got missed.
