If you follow my reviews you will note that each experience does not have to reinforce my sense of importance and proclaim my net worth. We appreciate,clean, quiet, value for money, a friendly environment, scenic location, lots of good food and convent distance to attractions that suit us. Situated towards the southern end of the magnificent Oregon Coast on Highway 101, the drive there has two main options first to get there from the north through Lincoln City or from the south through Newport. We chose the southern route traveling down and the northern route returning home. Not a long drive by American standards with lots to view by scenic distraction either way. This was our first experience of the Fireside Motel and we were very pleased with it. Again to be clear, we travel for relaxation and rest, not to have every experiential nerve tested and appeased. We found the motel without any problem and our check in was simple, friendly and quick. It helps of course if the weather is good, which it was...... The room like all rooms in the motel was close by the ocean whose sound is hard to be missed with open windows, lovely. The motel has two major hotels one on either side, Overleaf to the north and the Adobe to the south. The coastal trail hugs the coast line past each of them. The room was of a design typical of 90% of the hotels we have ever stayed in. Decor was conservative, all the equipment was in good working order with easy to use instructions, the room itself felt and smelt very fresh and well maintained. Nothing looked tired or threadbare, only fresh and crisp. A modest cold breakfast was available each morning to be consumed either in the breakfast room or it could be taken back to your room if you wished.
We had booked in for four nights and were sorry to leave at the end of it. We will return. At the right time of the year i.e., May, June and July, while there is excellent Whale watching available at the coast this is a wonderful location to do this. I observed more whales over a two day period than I have ever seen in my life.....

Room Tip: Second level is quieter. If a sea view from the room or a balcony is essential then be sure to confi...

We are repeat customers of the Fireside - this was a spur of the moment jaunt so weren't able to get an oceanfront room, but the ocean is mere steps away. As always, our room was comfy, clean, staff was pleasant -- we were happy (including out dog).

Room Tip: Get oceanfront if you can

Thank you for continuing to stay at the Fireside Motel. As you mentioned, the ocean is mere steps away from any of our rooms, and the sound of the waves crashing against the rugged coastline is heard by all. We are glad to know you (and your dog) enjoyed your stay.

We enjoyed our stay. Staff was friendly and helpful with advice on food and recreation. The oceanfront room was amazing. Swing for the upstairs room with a fireplace as those rooms have vaulted ceilings and it really makes the room feel more deluxe. The upstairs room had been refreshed with granite, etc. and it was very nice. The downstairs room was clean, if a little dated. But clean is what is most important I suppose. Best of all ..... they are pet friendly. The oceanfront room is amazing. To listen to the waves all night long is soooo relaxing. This place is on the ocean, I mean literally on the ocean. They mean it when they say oceanfront. There is no 1 mile hike to the ocean. It is right outside your door. There is a path that leads along the ocean in either direction that makes for wonderful walking morning and evening. I doubt you would be disappointed with your stay. We were very satisfied.

Room Tip: Pick the upstairs rooms with fireplace. Although I say that the downstairs rooms were nicer because...

We had a lovely weekend at the Fireside Motel. In the mornings, the tide is way out so you can walk on the beach. In the afternoons, Beachside Beach up the road about 3 miles is awesome, too. There is a terrific trail that runs in front of the motel, follows the coastline. You can walk into Yachats. We ate great pizza at Outtagas. You can walk to that as well. Really nice weekend! Super nice staff.

We stay here every time we travel the coast. Great location on oceanfront with walking path that takes you to a seven mile beach walk to Waldport. Get a second floor oceanfront room for the view. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds. Continental breakfast is nothing special but that doesn't stop us.

I went over for my stepsons wedding, and the location was great and I knew that I would be spending a little bit more money because it is summer time and it is the coast. But I expect the hot and cold water to work and the breakfast to have food up till 10 am when that is what they have on their website. I went down at 9:25 and there was nothing left to eat and nothing looked like it was going to be restocked. Bed was comfortable and I guess for one night it is ok. I don't know that I would stay there again though.

When I walked in the room and saw the view I was just thrilled. The room also exceeded our expectations. The stay was wonderful, the bed very comfortable, the room spacious and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful - it was truly a joy to stay there and we will go back.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor to get the most of the view
