Nice overall but I'm just a normal working stiff and it was not a luxury or romantic place just an average clean motel would stay again if price was 65-70 on weekend or 35-40 weekday. Hotdogs in cowtown, mustard and onions only, but with a smile pleeez . Love ya
Very friendly service and clean room. Convenient location. had trouble with the room key working so had to wake the manager very early in the morning after taking my dog out to take care of business. Very responsive staff. think the charge for a single dog is high - $25/night.
Very good location, clean small room. Very good WiFi, off street parking, nice location. Office has irregular hours. Older but maintained. Small office style fan/heater only source, but adequate if not state of the art. I'd stay again, but not if my wife were with. Not a romantic destination, basic basic inexpensive lodging.
I don't know how they sleep at night charging what they do for a room that was old,, dirty, spider webs. Couldn't get out of there fast enough. Reviews did not reflect what' the place is like
Location Lamp shades stained. Holes in wall covered by pictures. Beat up furniture. Complete lack of Exterior Maintenance.
Location to downtown. The heater did not work and management wouldn't fix it. Very dirty walls, floors and cockroaches.
It is literally 950 feet from the start of main street. The location is PERFECT!! Its walking distance to beach, shops restaurants, and the local bar The bed was HORRIBLE!! There was a huge sink hole in the middle so my husband and I pretty much slept rolled on top of eachother
Hotel rooms appear to have been renovated and the room was very cute and comfortable. The small kitchen was a big bonus. Loved that there was a back door into the kitchen as well. Room was a bit warm and stuffy, as there was no a/c there. However, no a/c is pretty common in the area and the outside temps were unusually warm so I doubt this is normally an issue. A ceiling fan or portable one would have helped, but we did not ask.
The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful, genuinely interested in our comfort. Exceptionally clean as well. I'm not a motel kind of person, usually staying at Holiday Inn Express's etc...and so I was extremely worried about this being a flea bag motel. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. Although it was small, it felt comfy like a bedroom rather than a hotel room. Lace on the windows and furniture, nice t.v., small walk-in closet, new tile and fixtures in the small bathroom. Nice wooded vaulted ceiling. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. And just a block away from Embarcadero St (where all the shops, resteraunts, water, and boats are). So the window looks out on the parking area, oh well. I do not regret staying there one bit. Oh and did I mention it was cleeeeeeean!!
While this isn't a "5 star hotel", it is better than what you would expect for the price and general rating. It's small and privately owned by a single family, so they are much more interested in making sure the stay is phenomenal, compared, say, to a large corporate chain. There's no pool or hot tub, but the beach is very close. There's no room service, but it's within walking distance to lots of restaurants and cafés. And, just like everyone else has said, don't miss the "Magic Fingers"! I'm definitely staying here again! Just like with all hotels, the bed wasn't mine, so it wasn't the most comfortable. However, I've stayed in "nicer" places and I slept better at Sundown Inn.
Right off the get go the staff member who greeted us and employees were very friendly. The room was in the corner without a view but it filled the need and was extremely clean. I got the feeling that a lot of thought was put into customer care which is rare these days. I would definitely stay here again. If I had to really think about it, and this seems really picky, but the electrical could be updated in this room...This is by far not a deal breaker either as everything worked as it should.
OMG, these owners are the nicest people! Plus, they don't tell you but the beds still have "magic fingers" on them! Walking distance to everything in town, overall fantastic. Walking distance to restaurants.
Perfect Location Beautiful room Comfortable Perfect size Wonderful Staff Fireplace Romantic Pillows Shower Head
I had a fun time there, it's close to the water and the owners were friendly. There was breakfast in the morning and checkout time was reasonable at 11am. No complaints here.
Stayed here with my wife and we had a great time. Location was great, it was 2 blocks from the all the shopping, restaurants, and bars. The staff was super friendly and the breakfast that was included was also good. They had bikes that we were able to use and road them throughout town. We had a great experience and will definitely be staying again
We had a great experience. The staff is excellent and so helpful. Our fireplace was broken, which they didn't know about until we got there. Jim (owner) tried to fix it but couldn't. He tried to get some out to fix it immediately, but couldn't. He felt terrible and gave us a generous gift certificate to a nice restaurant to compensate for it and made sure we had space heaters. He even personally called and got us a reservation and made sure the restaurant was aware and welcoming of our 2 year old daughter at a very nice restaurant where they don't even have a kids menu. Everyone was so kind to us. When we checked out, he apologized many times about the fireplace and it really wasn't a big deal to us. I would highly recommend this place. It was cute, comfortable, perfect size for our family, great location, and awesome staff.
Clean, comfortable, and close to everything.
We liked that we were walking distance to Morro Bay and very close to all the shops and restaurants on the Embarkdaro. The heater worked great! It exceeded our expectations for a 54.00 hotel. It was clean and nice. It was quiet and the staff was quiet. Nothing - it was a reasonable hotel for a very cheap price.
They didn't change the bedsheets or clean the room (vacuum, dust, clean counters, mop floor, etc) when we requested maid service. They did give us clean towels. The wallboards were sticky with black fingerprints, the carpet was dirty and the walls had dust on them. The heater was SO loud and the tempature wasn't accurate so we were cold each night. The tv sat on the microwave and they had an old refrigerator and the handle was dirty. This will be the last time we stay at Fireside Inn.
We stayed in July and were very pleased that the staff accommodated our request for a room with a view of the harbor. We enjoyed the fresh breeze through the open windows (even left them open at night). The electric fireplace heaters were a nice touch and worked well to take the chill off the evening air. We loved that we could walk just two blocks to the harbor and enjoy meandering down the street, popping into shops or restaurants. We even saw a sea lion sunning himself on the rocks. The continental breakfast is very minimal at the Inn, but there is a great Sun & Buns Bakery on Embarcadero with delicious pastries, breakfast burritos, and coffee drinks close by!
The rooms were very spacious and there was plenty of room for the kids to roam around and they had a microwave and a refrigerator which made traveling with a baby much easier than the previous 2 nights. The room was very clean and even had a cute little fireplace. We will definitely stay again on our next trip. The man at the front was very rude and didn't pick up the phone or come to the desk to answer questions. He also charged an extra $20 for the night because we had a baby. Who slept in a travel bed I might add. When I showed him our reservation he said it wasn't right and that he had to charge the extra money for the baby.
location is great, room was clean, bed - comfy
Great location. Reasonable price. Decent facilities. Rude staff. We were staying in Morro Bay for a wedding and my sister stopped by our room in the morning. The manager accused us of having more people staying with us. We were offended. The continental breakfast was room temperature Tang and costco muffins cut into four servings. You can borrow an iron from the front desk but expect eye-rolling.
The size of the room, the fake fireplace, and the efficiency of the heater. I couldn't not understand what the man behind the counter was saying. All he would do is mumble and never complete a sentence. Very frustrating.
Very clean and comfortable room and very friendly staff!
The room is very clean, the location is close to beach. Good value for the money. The included breakfast is not good. Just quartered muffin, pastry, coffee. We be a better value if they improve the breakfast.
Awesome Location, just a short walk to the shops and restaurant. Old Bathroom, door didn't close. Heat A/C wasn't working.
Clean, close to the beach, friendly staff, good price
because it was by the morro bay rock yes the room smelled.
the location of the hotel near beach and shops is great there is no airco. During our stay it was nog warm zo no problem
I have stayed here before a couple of times. The beds are always comfortable and the rooms clean. These are the two most important things to me. This is not fancy or elegant but suits the need of a clean comfortable room. There is no hair dryer and you'd better bring your own shampoo and soap as what they give you is a small sample. The fireplace is a nice touch and they provide the log. It does a good job warming up the room and is nice to doze off to while watching a little tv with the lights out. Spa is nice.
The location was great and the bed was very comfortable. Room was dirty, carpet was stained and dirty, the above fan was dirty, mildew around tub, smelled like stale old smoke, and no air conditioning. I also didn't care for the maintenance workers pounding their hammers at 8am.
Hotel was situated within walking distance of most of Morrow Bay shops and dining. Ambiance of the room was alright, the room had a fireplace in it, although that may have been a factor to the room being quite cold when checking in. Room heater didn't work, although there was a portable plug in heater in the room that worked quite well. Walls and insulation were mediocre, but expected at the price of the stay.
It was during the week so it was quite. The were putting in new windows and I didn't like the fact that while we were gone the room was opened so the men could work. It's a good thing we didn't have anything worth taking.
No elevator, and I was on the 3rd floor.
It was a couple of blocks up from the Embarcadero, but there was a pretty good view of Morro Rock from our rooms. The facilities are a bit older. Bathrooms small and sink did not drain well.
The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was a little firm for my liking but not too bad. It appeared the room above ours (we were in 101) is the owner/manager residence. Could here every footstep all night long. Sounded like kids playing and running through the house. Multiple loud bumps through the night which awakened us.
The rooms were clean. Staff was friendly. Hot shower with great water pressure. Great location. Floors were laminate and cold. Needed more blankets. Towels were awful. P.E. kind of awful.
Good hotel in walking range to restaurants and sightseeing. Breakfast room is REALLY small, had to take it to the room.
Pictures online made rooms look great. Reality was run down room with a new coat of paint. Dirty dirty dirty. Smeared fecal matter on bathroom door. Continental breakfast was stale cereal and bread for toast. Awful place and will never stay again.
Of course hearst castle was great! Cambria was also great. What my wife and i, also my friends did not like were the beds They were to hard, not comfortable, everything else was fine.
The room itself was clean and comfortable. The balcony was a nice feature and there was room to sit and relax before turning in for the evening. The sinks didn't drain and there was a big wad of hair in the shower drain. We were happy we only stayed here one night because we didn't want to shower here and we didn't.
The Motel is a little older (which means the rooms are larger than newer rooms) and very nicely remodeled. I see from reading previous suggestions they take them to heart, as our room was very comfortable and clean. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. The Pastries on the weekend are incredible. Shops and restaurants are literally a 5 minute walk from the Motel. Coffee was OK, but didn't match the Pastries at all. A small refrigerator would have been nice. Especially, for longer stays.
The only thingh I liked is the town is located in. Place is dated, the water in the shower comes out really hot while you shower then all of a sudden the water comes out freezing cold, every time some one in the next room uses the water or flushes the toilet while you shower this happens..
I liked the location of the inn. Though I would have liked to be closer to the beach, it was surrounded by cute cafes and shops. I did not like the fact that they asked for credit card information online and charged us at the hotel still with a one hundred dollar deposit on top of it all.
The room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Just a short walk to shopping and restaurants. We had a lovely stay!
Nothing.... will never consider staying here again. We reaerved a room with 2 queen size beds and a balcony and they gave us a room with 1 pull out bed. The sofa bed was so uncomfortable that even my 4yr old was complaining about his back hurting. I would like for the owner and or manager to try and slee on the sofa bed and beds....

Staff were friendly on the phone. Good place to stop for our drive from Solvang to Monterey. Heater doesn't work. Very noisy - I can hear other rooms showering and walking. The room and bathroom were not as clean as I hoped. Upgrading to a balcony room was quite useless - no view, and it seems that the room is exactly same as the standard one, with primary difference being that the room was upstairs. Realistically, this room is worth less than $80, the cost reflects the location and perhaps the scarcity of nicer places to stay.
Efficient and friendly staff. Place looks recently upgraded. Beds were good. Clean. Room was small but hey - it's Motel 6, not the Waldorf!
Clean, newly remodeled. Room was cold at first but was adequately warm after a few hours.
The staff was very nice. When we were getting a refund, the employee at the front desk was very apologetic and handled the situation as best she could. The cockroach that greeted us as soon as we opened the door. Also his little buddy the fly who flew around letting us know he was there to greet us. It immediately turned us off from that room and we just wanted to get the hell out of there as quick as possible.
Newly re-decorated Although room was attractive, with no carpet or even a small rug, it had a very cold feel to it. Although I am sure cleaning is easier with no carpet. Used to get many more TV channels than now.
Staff were friendly and cooperative; room was clean and basic in furnishings; location was excellent, close to restaurants on the edge of town. No hair dryer in room (furnished on request from office); no coffee or breakfast included; not staffed at night; no ice scoop (service by hand?); not enough shampoo in room for two guests; not a good value for the price.
Convenient location for visit to Cambria and Hearst Castle No electrical outlet in the bathroom
