The Fireside Motel sits right on the beach, and the views are spectacular! We even saw whales from our window. The room was clean but quite small. My husband and I were celebrating a special event and had brought good bottle of wine to sip while enjoying the view. The only cups in the room were paper. When I called the front desk to request two wine glasses, I was told that due to Covid glasses can no longer be provided, but that I could purchase them for $7.00 each in the gift shop. I understand that the pandemic has changed many things, but I felt it was almost petty to ask us to pay $14.00 for glasses when other amenities like breakfast have been stripped away. If the hotel can't afford to give guests a couple of glasses upon request, they should allow for purchase at their cost--probably closer to $3.00 per glass. Next time we'll be sure to bring glassware with us and recommend that others do, too. Aside from this, the Fireside is a good choice for those who want stunning views, ready access to the Oregon Coast Trail, and don't mind basic, no-frills accommodations.…
After an effortless check in to the motel we were excited to see that the room was extremely clean and was situated on the first floor - a bonus for someone with bad knees. Looking out our front window and sitting outside in the gusty winds was refreshing. The walking path around the property was well maintained and provided for some very wonderful pictures of the wave - washed craggy rocks and a gorgeous summer sunset. I requested a fan for white noise, and within about four minutes a fan was delivered to the room. Now THAT is service! The mattress on the king bed was quite hard for both of us, but we realize some guests like sleeping on a firm bed. Aside from that, we had no issues at all with the Great Blue Heron.
Our room was a typical motel room. We were facing the parking lot although there were lots of rooms facing the ocean. We were there for 2 nights and they forgot to make up our room after the first night. When we mentioned it, they said they thought we had asked for them not to enter our room. But we were later told by someone else that they don’t make up the rooms because of Covid. We are traveling the coast and this was the only hotel that didn’t make up the room. The beds were comfortable. The help was nice. Just a few disappointments.
My husband and I stayed here for two days. Not having a full on ocean view when we booked, we were a little skeptical of our “partial view”. It ended up being a great view with no complaints. The entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They did everything right to make our stay a remembered one. I felt completely safe as they took the necessary precautions to ensure our safety. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. I would definitely return and can’t wait to book our next visit! Thank you!
Great (but wet) visit. Congrats to the newly married couple working here! Our cat Marceline had a grand old time. Glad to be able to come back! Service has been great (covid- things considered). Very relaxing, nice and clean.
