During a solo trip down the Oregon Coast, I arrived in Yachats in the late afternoon. Although clear at the time, the forecast called for overnight rain, and because I had already spent the previous night camping in the rain up coast, I opted to find a room. My first stop was the Fireside and it looked nice enough for the $75 price tag (non-oceanfront). I decided to take it instead of spending my evenign looking for a cheaper room, and that was a good decision.
The room was clean and dated, and overall pretty average. The location was quite nice, however. The Fireside sits facing the pacific with a playground of wave worn rocks right outside your door. Just about anyone can appreciate the view, the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks, the tidal pools, etc. that this area has to offer. There is also a walking path along the coast in front of several neighboring hotels.
The motel offered a simple, but nice, continental breakfast set up in the office/gift shop that hit the spot. If you are big on breakfast, you'll have to look elsewhere.
Overall, I'd say it was a little above average....."good", but I'll give it 3 stars because I didn't find it "Very Good" which is the description of 4 stars.

- 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.
