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.

- Relax, refresh and rejuvenate at the Fireside Motel on the oceanfront. Most of the rooms have breathtaking oceanfront views and are amazingly close to the surf pounding on the rocky coastline. Tide pools abound with life in the surf in front of your room and a well maintained State Park trail meanders along the bluff and ends at a nearby sandy beach. Many of our rooms are pet friendly, so bring your favorite pet(s) too! ... more less
