“Great view, large room, wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

My husband and I spent two nights in an Ocean View King, pet friendly, ground floor room. It was clean and comfortable, with fridge, coffee maker and microwave. In some motels, we find reading light lacking. Not so here! A wonderful ocean view greeted us with a nice table and chairs in front of the large window. A small but adequate, totally fenced deck with chairs and table made the whole experience even better. A two part bathroom, couch,TV and DVD player and long dresser top completed this well appointed room.

I was thrilled with the large size of the room. If weather had been rainy, as is often the case at the Oregon Coast, I still would have had plenty of space to work on tricks and games with our two German Shepherd Dogs to keep them from being bored. The weather was nice and we were able to access the easy to walk, well graded, 804 Trail as it went right in front of our room. The trail goes both north and south, about a mile either way, ending on the north end at a wonderful, long, sandy beach. We loved being that close to the trail and ocean. Flood lights make wave watching at night a treat. Falling asleep to ocean waves is a joy.

This dog friendly establishment provides ample outside on-leash dog space complete with clean up stations. The simple continental breakfast provided a special treat fresh from a local bakery, cereal, fruit, milk, orange juice, coffee and fresh fruit. It was very enjoyable to eat several of our meals at our room's unsurpassed ocean front table. This room was comfortable enough to spend more time than usual wave watching, reading or watching dvd's. The only down side for us - the plumbing from the upstairs room was noisy.

The front desk staff was helpful and professional both on the phone when we made reservations, and in person while staying at The Fireside. We will be returning!

Room Tip: The ground floor eliminated any steps from our stay which was wonderful for our older dog.

We absolutely love to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay, and even more that they will be returning to see us. The Fireside prides ourselves on having many return guests, and there is a good reason for this. You have described our facilities perfectly to the point I don't have anything I can add! Thank you so much for your fantastic review and we hope you and your German Shepherds will be back to visit us regularly!

My wife, my geriatric pooch and I spent my birthday weekend at the Fireside. We had a great room with a breath-taking view, a balcony, and a fireplace. The room was spotless. The people were great. We will definitely return.

This dog friendly, oceanside motel is exactly as advertised. Our ocean view, king room was just as pictured, and more important the dog loved it. The people here are very friendly and helpful and even had a special package for our dog.
The grounds are next to the ocean trail and the walk along the shore is magnificent. Just a short walk north will put you on the beautiful sandy beach and the town is a short walk to the south. This is a great motel for motorcylists with lots of flat parking right in front of your room.
The rooms are of moderate sized, very clean, well appointed, with good towels, microwave, and fridge. Most importantly there is lots of hot water to revive you after a cold damp ride. There is always hot, good tasting coffee available in the office/store. The motel and room pictures on the website are accurate and show exactly what you will be getting.
This is a great reasonably priced motel that offers good value and great views. The motel management is involved with a food bank program. A donation will get you a discount. This is a great way for the business to give back to the community. I would not hesitate to recommend the Fireside to anyone.

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We have done our best to make sure our guests are aware of the accommodations they will be staying in while with us at the Fireside. Our website includes virtual tours of almost all of our rooms, and even shows the view from them. You are certainly correct that this is a great spot for motorcyclists, we have many that come through when the weather starts to get better! Our food drive is running through May 23rd and is good Sunday-Thursday and is good for 20% discount off our room rate. We hope to see you again with us soon here at the Fireside Motel!

If you enjoying watching the waves crash against the shoreline rocks just a few feet from your room while watching whales blow and rise not far off the coast then the Fireside Motel in Yachats is the place for you. This was our experience when my wife and I recently visited the Oregon Coast. Beside the wonderful views we enjoyed a stroll along the Coast Trail just outside our room to the Yachats Community Park and an adjacent coffee shop during a marine flow (foggy) day. Our room was well kept and comfortable. A great addition to the room was a small window that could be left open to hear the waves crashing on the rocks. The staff missed our room one day, though not a big problem for us, it did keep me from giving an excellent rating.

Room Tip: Ocean front rather than ocean few.

It sounds like you enjoyed the Fireside Motel and Yachats the way we hope all our guests will. This is a great time to come and visit us if you want to see whales and waves crashing, springtime at its best here! The 804 trail is an easy walk and when you head south it takes you right into town, heading north leads to an 8 mile stretch of sandy beaches to explore. I was disappointed to hear that we missed your room one day, if this happens in the future please feel free to contact the front desk. We are always happy to bring any items you may need or that were missed by our staff. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon!

Let's be honest, people expect the best. Is it the best? The Fireside Motel is rough around the edges but otherwise great. I chose this motel at "random" (thanks TA) and would definitely return. They have great views of the coastal rocks and the surf crashing upon them. I didn't have the pleasure of an ocean view room but will do so if I vacation to the Oregon Coast again. Falling asleep to the sounds of the surf is unbeatable.

Stayed one night on a road trip down the Oregon coast. Great location, easy access from the highway and beautiful ocean views. Room was great - comfy and met all our needs. Wished we had more time to explore the area; would definitely stay here again!

We find that many of our guests feel this same way and wish they had made more time for Yachats and the Fireside Motel on their vacations. When making reservations I try to recommend staying at least two days to explore our area. Our beaches, hiking trails, restaurants, and eclectic shops make Yachats a great place to visit. I hope you come back and see us again!

Thanks to the web community we stumbled upon this motel on our west coast road trip. The staff was very friendly and made arrangements for after hours check-in.
A small open window (screened) makes it ideal for guests to enjoy the sound of the waves without opening the patio door.

Room Tip: Definite recommend an ocean facing room

We appreciate you taking the time to review the Fireside Motel, we love hearing when our guests enjoy their stay! I hope your next trip to the Yachats area will include the Fireside, and possibly more than just as a "great pit stop". Our hiking trails, beaches, restaurants and spectacular view make Yachats a great place to spend at least a few days. We hope to see you again on the next road trip!
