What a great staff at the Fireside Motel. From the time of check-in to my departure, things could not have been better. My room was so clean and comfortable. I loved the view "through clean windows", first time in a long time at the coast! I have to admit that my time at the Fireside Motel was the most relaxing and comfortable experence I have ever had at any motel! I will be back as many times as I can, a fantastic time and place!!
Thank you Fireside Motel staff-your hard work shines!!

Room Tip: Any room with an ocean view works well-great location for a motel.

The front desk folk are really friendly and make sure you have everything you need. As others have mentioned, the pet rooms are really well-kept up and the staff provide a doggie care package with sheets and towels. The ocean views are amazing! We had a great time with our dog (who absolutely loved the beach and the short walk to and from it). Yachats is a small, friendly town and there are great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. There is also a nice small botanical garden across the street. Lovely stay - thanks for such great hospitality!

Room Tip: Can't beat ocean front/ocean view! We had hoped to get a room with a fireplace, but they were b...

Nice rooms, better than Adobe, not as expensive as the Overleaf Spa next door.
We'll be back.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Fireside Motel. Our objective at the Fireside is to serve our guest by providing a clean, well appointed oceanfront (or near oceanfront) room with a expert and efficient staff, yet is economical for those not wanting to pay for a lot of extra amenities that maybe they will not use. We certainly love to hear about our awesome guests enjoying the Fireside, and we look forward to your return visit with us!

We had a lovely stay here. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The restaurants in Yachats were a short 10-15 min walk away. We like the added extras of the movie rental and cheese boards from reception along with the little kitchen area in our room. We had a pleasant stay which would have only been better if there hadn't been a lot of sea fog and we could have seen more of what would have been a great view.

We know we have succeeded in serving our guests when they have ‘a lovely stay’ at the Fireside. I will certainly share with the staff that you felt they were helpful and pleasant. “Downtown” Yachats is a pleasant walk from the Fireside Motel, and the 804 trail that goes along the coastline in front of the Motel will lead you there. There is a nice oceanfront restaurant just a 3 minute walk along the ocean from the Fireside. Winter time in Yachats often makes for some fantastic storm watching. Hopefully on your next visit we won’t have fog. Thank you for taking the time to review the Fireside, and we look forward to your next visit!

Often times, pet rooms seem to be second class. Not at the Fireside. The view from the rooms is fantastic. In the winter, it's a great place to watch the waves crashing on the rocks. Since you're right on the 804 trail, it's a short walk to a beach that stretches all the way north to Waldport. It's a great beach for beach-loving dogs to run on. You can also follow the trail to the south and walk through some residential areas. The rooms are fairly spacious and well maintained.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms on the second floor facing the ocean. The have gas fireplaces and the ceiling is...

Another great review from another fantastic guest! Thank you Kolohe280 for reviewing the Fireside Motel. The Fireside is a great place to bring your furry friends. We have both pet and non-pet rooms available for all of our room types to accommodate everyone at this special spot on the oceanfront. Since our rooms are so close to the ocean, we certainly agree that the view from our oceanfront rooms is fantastic, and winter is definitely a great time to visit to watch the waves crash against our rocky shoreline. And you mentioned the public trail to the south – you quickly arrive at an oceanfront restaurant that is about a 5 minute walk. If you proceed on further, after about 20 minutes with much of the walk along the oceanfront, you are in the town of Yachats where there are many services including restaurants, shops and galleries, grocery store and a post office.

The Fireside is always reliable. Lizzie the Lab and I are welcomed with doggie bags, sheets and towels. In the winter we have an ocean front king with a fireplace for under $100 a night complete with a small frig and a microwave. The rooms are clean and very roomy although simple. There is a small wooded area for doggies to romp and do their business. Convenient to Yahats and right on the ocean, you couldn't have a better location. On the down side, the water pressure is poor and the wifi is slow...but it's free. The motel staff hangs around the laundry room smoking, but they seem friendly. I will return here year after year. Best deal that I know for you and your pet.

Room Tip: I had room 30 upstairs with no one on the right and a small patch of lawn for Lizzie just down the s...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Fireside Motel. Wintertime is a great time to visit us and the King bed fireplace room is always a fantastic choice. All of our oceanfront rooms have a convenience refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot, and of course the spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. We do not allow smoking in any of the interior portions, walkways or balconies of the Fireside and we ask those that do smoke to please stand at least 20 feet away from the building. We recently upgraded our wi-fi system with the fastest speed available in our area. We also recently had water heater problems that have been repaired. The village of Yachats is approximately one mile from our location, and the 804 trail will take you right into town by heading South, or to the sandy beaches to the North.

The best part of Fireside Motel is the wonderful beach that it sits on. It shares the property with a more upscale hotel that has a lovely spa. We stayed at the Fireside and visited the spa in the larger hotel, which gave us access to the jacuzzi (which has a breathtaking view of crashing waves). The hotel is simple but everything is clean. We had a regular room without ocean view, and still enjoyed walking outside and around the corner to see, hear and smell the surf just about a hundred yards from the hotel. If you like visiting natural beaches, this is the place for you! There are many trails along the surf, and wonderful rocks and tidal pools awaiting discovery. Fireside Motel has picnic tables and a charcoal grill available, so next time we'll probably pack a picnic! The hotel also has a gift shop, which offers complimentary coffee and tea. The weather was cool when we visited (in August), so a warm cup of herbal tea was a welcome treat!

We certainly appreciate your wonderful review of the Fireside Motel. I have to admit that we probably would not be here if not for ‘the wonderful beach that we sit on.’ That is the number one reason that our guests stay with us! The Fireside Motel has both ocean view and non ocean view rooms. Our non-ocean view rooms are an economical choice for those that want to come to the coast but may be on a tight budget. Right now through 1/31/2012 the Fireside guests are able to enjoy the spa at our sister location, Overleaf Lodge and Spa. There are many natural areas and hiking trails close to us, one of which is the historic 804 trail that runs along the ocean in front of the Fireside Motel. Stop by the front desk for complimentary maps and literature regarding the trails and parks in the area. Don’t forget to “like” us on Facebook for upcoming specials and promotions.
