We took our dog to the coast during a quiet winter week and had a nice time in Gearhart. The room was large enough with a king bed and a small table for working at a laptop with a cup of coffee. We had a nice view of the golf course (we don't golf) and the sunrise each morning. The... More

Thanks for your review. Sounds like you had a nice, pleasant & relaxing time. Thanks for bringing your pooch too; we definitely provide dog amenties, I'm not sure how we missed that on a 60lb dog, sorry about that. We have treats at the desk as well as a dog bowl and towel placed in the room. We'll double down... More

My wife and I stayed on a Friday night. The bed was OK, the room was well appointed, and the service was great. We were in room 205 which is right next to the parking lot and directly above the exit for the kitchen. The staff only took the garbage out around 9pm, but the long walk across the parking... More

This little inn by the sea is a comfortable getaway for a few nights. Our room faced the golf course and gave us a beautiful view of the snowy hills to the east. We liked the wood-paneled warmth and appreciated the relative quiet of our hallway. It was a plus to have a coffee station down the hall in the... More

Thanks Lolade for your wonderful review. It can be really beautiful and quiet in Gearhart. We make changes and updates to the menu fairly often, so hopefully next time you're out there'll be additions that appeal to you more. Thank you again. Owen C, Hotel Management More

We decided to stay here for our anniversary and was not disappointed. Since it is the off season it was very quiet. The room was very comfortable, clean, and cozy. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the old building. We are very familiar with the McMenamin hotels and their uniqueness which makes them fun. Like the lighting in the hall way did... More

No ocean view on east side, but our corner unit had lots of windows and a great view of golf course and mountains. Built like an old style beach hotel, the interior paneling was nice. Our king bed room was large, clean, and comfy, with HD TV and WiFi. I liked the fan above the bed, and the old photos... More

This hotel is really fun. We enjoyed walking around the hotel and the grounds. The room we had was large (we got a King Plus room) which was nice when there are 3 people in the room. You can walk across the street to see the ocean (or possibly from your room depending on which side your window faces). And... More

Thank you for your feedback. Glad you had fun; yes due to size of the hotel the staff wear many hats so our front desk staff often become your room service staff. We do not charge for Cribs, so I apologize, there must have been miscommunication with that. I'll respond privately as well to find out your reservation information so... More

We were surprised that the hotel did not have an ocean view. It has a view of huge condos which have ocean views. Our room was clean, well-stocked. It was also, based on nighttime racket, right above the kitchen/dishwashing area. The bed was moderately comfy. We had one really great staff experience with Jessica in the SandTrap. Also, found Shane... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are aware of the kitchen noise and do our best to ensure staff are very quiet during certain hours, but we can always do better. I'm so glad you had some positive experiences with some of the staff, the Gearhart is a great hotel and typically there's good synergy between staff. Sounds like we... More

Almost all good things to say about this place. Just stopped In with the hopes that maybe one of the managers would see this review. Loved everything about the Gearhart except all of the employees were VERY publicly bickering with eachother the entire two hours we were there. So unprofessional and made it hard to focus on anything else. Catherine... More

Cant say enough good things about this property! We booked a room with a private bathroom (not down the hall as some are). Very clean and quiet space! The only downfall is the golfers at 5 am out on the green but in a weird way that's actually fun too. Its why you book a hotel on a golf course!... More
