We were booked to stay at the Fireside Motel next door. When we arrived for our three night stay, the desk clerk discovered they had made a mistake. Our reservation had been made for 2013, instead of 2012. Without hesitation, she said she would put us in an ocean-front room next door at their sister motel, the Overleaf Lodge.
The room was very large with a king bed, kitchenette, sofa, easy chair and ottoman and a first for us, a jacuzzi tub with an ocean view.
This was no ordinary continental breakfast. It was more like a hotel brunch buffet with fresh fruit, scones, several kinds of cold cereal, Bob's five grain hot cereal, and two breakfast entrees, such as a baked apple French toast and a spinach souffle.
I selected the Reviving Face and Sole facial and foot treatment at the Spa. Gail was excellent. We didn't use the spa jacuzzis because we had one in our room. We didn't use the fitness room either. It's kind of small with a very small television.
Our room was very comfortabl and clean. They provide receptacles for recycling. There's even a phone next to the toilet. We didn't have any reason to use it.
The television was not a flat screen and was small. There was a DVD player that worked.
The view to the ocean was mesmerizing. We did walk the 804 trail that runs right in front of the Lodge. It is a safe and easy walk to the ocean. Waterproof boots or shoes are advised.
The Fireside Motel has a nice gift gallery in their lobby. Some of the best art in Oregon are represented in four galleries just slightly north of the Overleaf on the left side of the highway going into Yachats. The smallest gallery was closed until Jan. 26. The one next door had an excellent selection of jewelry and other art at fair prices. The gallery next door features Bob Keller's photographs. He was there at the time and we had a nice talk about his work. The gallery on the other side had higher end and larger pieces that were absolutely beautiful. Don't miss these galleries.
The only things that could be improved in the room would be better lighting near the sofa to read by and firmer pillows.
I would highly recommend this place for a destination vacation.
