My room was paid for by others so I cannot comment on its value. I would say if the rate was $75 or less then it would be good value. I could distinguish conversations in an adjacent room, the carpeting was bunched up and unclean, the CRT-type TV was old and of low quality, the temp was over 90 degrees... More

Fireside is one of several motels on the Columbia Ave strip. I had a room on the second floor. Bed was comfortable and room and bathroom very clean. Carpet was dated and musty. TV was an old cathode ray model-very low definition. Complementary breakfast was basic- waffle maker, cereals and bagels/toast. Definitely not a destination spot, but fine for a... More

Bed was a little harder than we like, but room was comfortable. What made this a memorable place to stay was our visit with the manager while having breakfast. We changed the route we wanted to take because of the wildfires in B.C. so the manager gave us some tips on what to see along our new route. Visited a... More

Is an older place with no elevator. We had a suite that was old and ripples in the carpet, rather over priced but was a very large room. Best sleep ever as the beds were wonderful to sleep in. The Staff was helpful and very friendly and would stay again even though the price was high. Believe it or not... More

Check in and checkout were smooth, staff are friendly and worked to accommodate our requests. Yes, the place is dated, floors squeak, and carpet needs changing...however rooms were fine. Some minor updates are evident. Breakfast included. Our family thought it was an ok place to stay, convenient to the highway, with various shops (including Starbucks) close by. You can also... More

Stopped overnight with my two young grandsons during a busy holiday weekend. Conveniently located close to the main highway. A bit dated, but the rooms were large and very clean. Check-in was friendly and efficient. The rate was reasonable. The parking is free and convenient. We enjoyed a quiet restful sleep. An enjoyable feature is that although the Fireside does... More

We found everything about this little Inn a pleasant surprise and very affordable. Breakfast was great. Rooms were very clean and had a little kitchenette. All the amenities we needed were close by. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay again when in the area.
