“Perfect ocean-side motel”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Last year we came for one night (our first visit), this year for two nights, and we're already thinking of coming for a week next year. We love this place. The location can't be beat, with the easy access to a walking trail along the beautiful Oregon coastline. The views never disappoint. The rooms are comfortable, with a sitting area, a switch-on fireplace (handy even during the chilly summer evenings), nice amenities, and ours had a balcony. I guess some might consider this a somewhat old-fashioned motel, not super-fancy, but with everything we need for a deeply enjoyable stay in a gorgeous location. Yachats has some great restaurants (Drift Inn Restaurant and Green Salmon being our favorites), nice shops, and lots of friendly people. Plus in easy driving distance there are even more gorgeous vistas and hiking trails. I regard the Fireside Motel as one of the most perfect places I've ever stayed!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room, on the 2nd floor if you can handle the stairs. These rooms have balconi...

A little dated, but not shabby, price friendly motel with great ocean side location with a lovely beach side trail on your doorstep! The room I stayed in was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The motel was very pet friendly judging by the number of the folks staying with dogs. The staff were great. They made very helpful suggestions on the best of the local attractions/eateries and offered complementary breakfast coffee and snacks. The only downside to the location is the lack of walk ability to eateries and the town of Yachats. Overall, a good choice for travelers on a budget.

We are glad to know that you enjoyed your room, the staff and the complimentary breakfast. The Fireside Motel is definitely pet friendly and our staff enjoys getting to know everyone’s favorite companions. Yachats does have several restaurants, all within a 1 mile stroll along the picturesque 804 Trail. We have a local restaurant menu book in our lobby and our staff is always willing to offer suggestions to our guests.

The Fireside Motel has been an annual destination since first discovering this 8 years ago. This is a pet friendly motel. Complimentary tea and coffee in the lobby. Yachats has a couple of choices of restaurants. I choose to pack food from home and enjoy the view with some wine. It is Oceanside and along a trail. You must look at the tide tables and set your alarm to catch low tide. You will see the most amazing tide pools. I haven't seen anything like this. It is a favorite off all my guests. We were also fortunate to spot gray whales.

Room Tip: Get an Oceanfront room and enjoy the Gorgeous Sunset over the Pacific.

Thank you for making us a yearly destination spot and for bringing your friends along, too. We do have fantastic tide pools along our rocky coastline and I’m so happy to know that you love exploring them. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Even though we were traveling with our dog, we had the luxury of an ocean front room! Stepping out to enjoy a stroll on the 804 trail just can't be beat. Rooms are a little dated, but clean and comfortable. We skipped the light spread they set out for breakfast and headed to LeRoy's (Hearty breakfast fare!).

An older motel (but kept up to date) with great ocean side location! The rooms are very comfy and well equipped. Each room has a semi-private covered outside sitting area. The front staff are the best, they help in every way they can. The only draw back is the lack of an on-site kitchen. They offer a limited breakfast bar supplied by their next door luxury lodge (part of the same company). There is an onsite restaurant there that is available to go to. With many eateries available less than 1/2 mile away, this is not a problem. We will return!

Room Tip: First floor oceanside the best.

Thank you for reviewing your stay at the Fireside Motel. We are glad you enjoyed your comfortable room and sitting out on the balcony. The Fireside does provide a continental breakfast which includes a pastry that is baked fresh every morning in the kitchen at the Overleaf Lodge. The Overleaf Lodge does not have a restaurant, however. But as you mentioned, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Yachats, all within 1 mile of the motel.

Fireside is ideally situated on the beach at Yachats. The room was clean (and didn't smell) and well appointed and the service staff courteous and helpful. Good standard for a motel. Yachats is a delightful town that I would definitely go back to for a longer stay.

For dinning in town I would recommend the Historic Drift Inn and for breakfast and coffee the Green Salmon coffee shop was outstanding.

Unplanned stop referred by diners down South ... We were so pleased with this little find!!!!!

Ocean Spray - TidePool - Pacific Breezes - Fireplace Ambiance ... The Fireside had it all and priced very reasonably.

Would travel to the area again just to stay here.
