“Shoreline gem - what a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Everyone knows the Oregon coastline is spectacular - and this motel complex offers an intimate view at a fraction of the price. Perched directly above the breaking waves, our room had a full picture window that brought the experience up close and personal. We plan to return to Yachats next summer - and I am considering a winter stay - and would not consider any other place to stay. This is prime coastline - and the Fireside Motel is a gem, a jewel in the coastline's crown.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for Room 18 - all the other king ocean views have balconies and split windows. This...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had heard about the Yachats area for many years from friends and this was our first visit there. We found the Fireside Motel to be a very comfortable place to stay, the two women working the desk had a very HO HUM attitude as to any of our comments as to how nice their location and hotel in general was or to our just basic questions, but unless they are the owners, then they can be replaced with maybe a few folks who do share the excitement of being at the Motel. We found our room to be much better than expected as to size and a fantastic view of the ocean. We drove to the Adobe a few blocks for a early bird dinner ( six choices for $13.95 as most regular menu items were mostly in the $20 + range ) but the view from our table, the great service and wonderful quality of food was well worth going there. The next day we had the very basic continental breakfast of cereal, coffee, one choice of homemade muffin, and fresh fruit ( apple, banana & orange ), so be prepared as to the slim offerings and those should be improved for future guests, but yes because of the location we would be happy to stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for room 42 as it has the best view of the ocean

Thank you for your review of the Fireside Motel. I apologize that you did not have a great experience with our staff, I will be sure to share your review with them. Room 42 is one of our King oceanview rooms that looks over a small parking lot toward the Ocean. These rooms are quite large and for those that are on a stricter budget you still have an amazing view. We hope you will stay with us again if you are in the area.

Our room was comfortable, but the big draw was sitting on your porch and watching the ocean 24/7. And watching people stroll on the ocean side path and have fun on the rocks. I am glad I stayed at an ocean front room. It was totally worth it. Breakfast was a bit skimpy, but love that view!

Room Tip: Ocean front. It's worth it.

You can't beat the view from the second floor ocean front rooms. There is a lot to do and see in the area, making it a great destination. It is a good place to bring your dog. We were practically the only guests there without a dog. Nice trails and interesting things to see, tide pools, whales and seals are right out side your door. The rooms are a little ordinary, but clean. We all slept very well. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were quiet.

Room Tip: The second floor oceanfront rooms are definitely worth the extra money.

Thank you Susan for the complimentary review. Yachats is a wonderful place to explore tidepools, hike, watch the wildlife, and enjoy some spectacular views! One of our oceanfront rooms is definitely a great way to spend a couple of days (if not more) enjoying the sights and sounds of the Oregon Coast. We hope to see you again soon at the Fireside!

Location, location. Were it not for the outstanding oceanfront views, you could find this motel anywhere. The motel and rooms themselves are pretty basic...clean and adequate, reasonably priced, pet friendly. Service is friendly. However, the location js outstanding!

Highly recommend the oceanfront room.

My husband and I just did an Oregon Coast tour and stayed at four different places along the coast with oceanviews, but this simple motel's view and proximity to waves hitting lava rocks is beyond compare. Best sleep of the trip -- there are small windows that you can leave open, so that you can listen to the waves hitting rocks all night. The trail right behind the motel allows you to enjoy some of the most dramatic parts of the Oregon Coastline, and the fog just adds to the drama.

The rooms are simple and a little dated, but clean and spacious. The staff were nice enough, breakfast adequate (not great, but love that they give you trays to bring back to your room), and the gift shop has lovely selections.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Splurge and get an oceanfront room.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us here at the Fireside! Being as close to the ocean as we are allows our guests to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the Pacific Ocean as it crashes upon our rocky shoreline. The 804 trail that runs in front of the motel is definitely a great place to explore our coastline. Thank you for the wonderful review and we hope to see you again soon!

This simple two story motel has ocean views to love, especially if you select the ocean view rooms, towards the middle on either floor. The rooms were clean, not elegant; the staff was friendly, even providing a beautiful orchard on Mother's Day; the gift shop exceeds the typical and boring; the continental breakfast is sufficient. We want to return to the second floor during storm season just to watch the waves crashing on lava rocks; since we moved from Hawaii after 50 years and resettled in Portland, we get sort of but not exactly our miss Hawaii fix.

Room Tip: ocean view center
