Score from 372 reviews Very good 8/10
Location is great, right across from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and ocean. Bed was great, room and bathroom nice and clean. Great for families! Nothing fancy, but clean. It's all about location, location, and you can't beat where it's located.
The parking was tough and tight, and it was expensive. No place on grounds to be outside currently. Looks like they are setting something up for this.
The location was reasonable, being close to the boardwalk
The "suite" we had was small and pokey. The rooms were all painted white and felt like a veterinary surgery, and the bathroom didn't look like it had been replaced in decades. For the money this room cost I expected a great deal more. Thank goodness we only stayed there one night.
Next to the beach. Next to the boardwalk. Wifi was perfect.
The owner was super nice, the bed was comfy, the pillows felt new and the location was just so awesome! Plus the parking available at the motel meant we didn't have to pay for parking at the boardwalk or wharf.
Location, Location, Location
Bathrooms could use an upgrade but the price was right.
The location is great, 3 min walk to the boardwalk. The bed was really comfortable. Comes with a small refrigerator and microwave. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
The price on a sat. for a older small room was very high. I suppose that's the trade off for getting a great location.
Fireside Inn location was great, short walk to boardwalk. Clean and comfortable. continental breakfast provided. quiet and safe.
parking were small and limited. bathrooms need some up grades
very close to the action on the boardwalk
the hotel is run down, the room was lousy, the continental breakfast was the worst we had between san fran and La. My wife, daughter and I agreed it was our worst lodgings in the 17 days we stayed on the coast. the price was far too high for the value - but - they got location
The new operators we're very nice and extremely helpful and accommodating. The motel is old and could use some TLC but our rooms were clean and the location couldn't have been better.
The overall quality and condition of rooms
The reasonable price. The location, right across the street from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The friendly, attentive staff. The quiet of the room for sleeping. The fact all rooms are non-smoking. Comfortable bed. Clean room. Obviously recently refurbished and renovated, with new draperies, tile, fixtures, flat-screen TV with DirectTV, dual-pane windows (quiet!), door locks, microwave, and refrigerator.
Very clean, comfortable beds, great price for proximity to the boardwalk and beach, free parking for one car per room. Small motel with nice staff.
The free breakfast is not for those of us who can't have gluten, but there are many good cafes and restaurants close by.
close to boardwalk and everything else. Cozy and quite. Clean room. If room available, can check in early. Would stay here again.
not a thing.
The office staff were very kind and helpful.
For the price and our family needs, the Fireside was great. Two separate rooms, a little fridge, basic amenities. Very comfortable beds!
Slope of the hill made it a little tough for us! Very little room to walk around beds. But these are minor issues!
Location was great!
A bit pricey for the type of room but comparable to other like hotels in the area.
Location, Priced well, staff was friendly
Free wifi. OK location. Free parking.
Tatty condition. Over priced. Questionable security. Small rooms. Smell of curry. Furnishings. Lack of amenities. Feeling conned.
Proximity to boardwalk and beach. Our room had a king and a full sized bed in a separate little room.
It's a beach motel so expect beach motel accommodations.
Close to Boardwalk.
Room and staff
Little out dated
Comfy beds seperate rooms for the kiddos close to Broadwalk
Surpirsed by parrots early in the morning--kids liked it though!
The hotel is very close from the beach and it was nice to enjoy the breakfast in the little patio.
It is a bit noisy during the night... Think about ear plug!
Staff was friendly. Good breakfast with nice outdoor seating.
The Inn management treated us with caring and respect. The room was clean, comfortable with TV, microwave, small fridge, and Wi-Fi. The daily charge was moderate. Maid service did good works. The Inn is close to Beach Boardwalk, Wharf. Thank You.
