“Very Dog-friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I said in my last hotel review that I rarely comment on my hotel stays, but I might have to start making exceptions. My exception here is the fact that dogs are so welcome here.

My dogs love the coast and I love being able to travel with them, but I don't get a chance to do it very often. The Fireside is not a fancy place at all, it's a standard hotel with standard rooms. Its sister hotel, The Overleaf, is right next door and there is an obvious difference in the appearance of the two. I haven't stayed there because they don't allow dogs, but I would definitely consider it if I were there without them.

We were there over President's weekend and they were full. I really think every room had a dog in it. I saw several dogs out for their morning potties and heard the one next door bark a couple of times. If you really don't like dogs, then you might want to go next door. I love all dogs, not just my own, so I really enjoyed it and felt like we fit in.

The views are great and there is a pathway that goes in either direction near the water. It isn't right on the sand, you do have to walk a little way to get to sand walking, but we had so many opportunities elsewhere that I didn't mind.

They provide sheets and towels so we were able to keep them clean and not make a mess in the room with the wet sand. The sheets allowed them to sleep on the bed with us as they're accustomed to and made us feel that our dogs' needs were accepted.

We really had a great time here and would definitely go back.

You are certainly correct, we love dogs here at the Fireside. Most of our rooms here at the hotel are pet friendly with a few exceptions for those guests that may have allergies or no pets travelling with them. Many of our rooms have balconies that our guests and their dogs can use to enjoy the magnificent view of the Pacific. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we do appreciate it, and we definitely hope to see you again soon!

I found a special I couldn't pass up and I was extremely happy with my decision. Spent 3 nights at Fireside with my husband, two (grown) boys, and our dog. Accommodations were great - ocean view room with plenty of space, nice deck and fireplace, and extensive trail system along the shore. You could walk in to Yachats or head the other direction and hit a sandy beach. Gift shop was filled with lots of nice items. We usually stay south of Yachats in accommodations that include 2 bedrooms with kitchen/living area. I missed having a kitchen, and the continental breakfast had a pretty poor selection, but I am not complaining. We had a great time.

Room Tip: Ocean view room on upper level with fireplace and deck was awesome.

Nice location with quick access to town either by car or walking. VERY dog accommodating with provided towels, baggies and walking area. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, better than average continental breakfast and the 2nd level fireplace rooms spacious with good sea views.

Room Tip: 2nd level fireplace oceanfront.

We picked the Fireside due to other good reviews and were not disappointed! Our room was large, well appointed, clean and right on the ocean with a balconcy and large window for wave watching. We had our dog with us and as advertised they were great about it: didn't get shunted to a back room because of it, but rather had a premium upstairs front row seat for ocean vistas. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Upper floor has best ocean view

Thank you Joan for your complimentary review. Here at the Fireside pet friendly really means pet friendly, unlike some of those places that do put you in the back room. We certainly hope you will come and visit us again!

Located in Yachats, on the mid Oregon coast is the Fireside Motel. We'd read good reviews on TA and decided to try for ourselves and our new Rescue dog , Sophie. Not only are pets welcome, but provided w/ their own beach towel to clean sandy paws , as well as a cover for the bed/ couch if the dog ( cat , iguana , who knows ? ) sits on it.
Not forgetting humans who have a clean room, great beds , and very pleasant and helpful staff.
Unlike some ''oceanfront'' motels where you walk endlessly to the beach, you have a 30yard ''trek'' there at the Fireside. This portion of the beach has a very nice trail and great agate hunting at low tides .
Another plus is the gift shop in the office ; many local artists are represented for those who wish to support them instead of ''Made in China'' shlock. Very nice surprise .

Room Tip: Just ask the desk / phone persons what you find important ; view, quiet , etc. They are actual huma...

Thank you for your fantastic review! You are definitely correct about our gift gallery, local artists are very important to us as well as the community of Yachats. We take pride in our area and our Motel and want all of our guests to feel the same. We really are oceanfront with some of the best views on the Oregon Coast. The rocky shoreline makes for some magnificent waves splashing, and just a short walk down the path is 8 miles of sandy beach. We certainly hope you will be back to visit us again, and Sophie is always welcome!

You wouldn't know it was a dog friendly room if no one told you. Not all rooms are, but we wanted to take our small dog. The desk gives you a dog pack which includes a large towel and bath mat to dry off your pooch before bringing into the room and a sheet to put on the furniture or carpet where he will be sleeping. We will stay there again even if we're not bringing our pet. Everything was real nice.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and get ocean front.

We appreciate you taking the time to review us and let others know how you enjoyed your stay. We work very hard to make sure all of our rooms, pet friendly or not, are in top condition for our guests. If you can book an oceanfront room I highly recommend it if you're coming to enjoy the magnificent view. We look forward to your next stay!

We stopped here because we just needed a place to stay for the night and this was one of the cheaper hotels in the area. The hotel overlooks the ocean and there's a nice waking trail I wish I'd had time for. The sunset over the rocks was fantastic. We didn't get an ocean view room but you can see it as soon as you walk out the door. The room was super clean and the bed was comfortable. My only gripe was the poor reception on the tv. With a slight discount this ended up being the cheapest hotel of our whole trip. It's an excellent value. I would gladly return for an ocean view room and stay longer.

The Fireside Motel has rooms to accommodate almost any budget. From our oceanfront rooms with King beds, gas burning fireplaces and balconies to our non-view rooms, which like you said are steps away from the ocean. Yachats is a great place to visit any time of year, and if you like storm watching now is a great time to come see us. The 804 trail that winds along the coastline in front of the Fireside is a nice easy walk for any age, and leads to an 8 mile stretch of sandy beach for those that love to explore. We certainly hope you will come back and see us again and take advantage of what Yachats and the Fireside has to offer!
