My wife and I stayed a Saturday night in a balcony room with a king bed and full bathroom. The room was decorated nicely and was very clean. Coffee in the morning at 6:30am just down the hall, newspaper and the room was very quiet. Our room overlooked the first tee and the golf course was in great shape. We... More

The room was very dark so it was tough to get a lot of light in the room. On the plus side, we slept great! The hotel beds were comfy. Even the hide-a-bed wasn't bad. The rooms amenities were above par to other beach hotels at this price. The rooms look over the golf course and two rooms have little... More

We typically love our stays with McMenamins' line of hotels, and we enjoy the European flair of the shared bathrooms, kitschy buildings, and other amenities available on-site. This location, however, calls to a different crowd, I suppose because it is associated specifically with a golf course. We are not typical travelers, and we like to travel in the shoulder or...

I don't know if this counts because we didn't stay there but we did stop for lunch and to get our passports stamped and it was so fun! We got free golf towels for filling up a page. The food, environment, grounds - all wonderful. McMenamins - you can always count on them for good..well, most anything.

We decided to do a last minute trip to add more to our Mcmennamins passport, so we chose this as it was the only one available this weekend. We had a corner room that was quite roomy as it was handicap accessible, and a private bath. I was surprised they had no hanging area, but, still Very nice! And they... More

Our group came here on a day trip to Astoria from Seaside. As with all McMenamins, neat artwork covers the walls. Lots of old photo's of former hotel's and Inns that was near this location. We sat in the bar and had a late lunch and enjoyed our favorite brews and drinks. Large decks are in the back of the... More

Gearhart is one of those places that you can either relax and read a book on the beach, play a round of golf, or explore neighboring communities with ease. Our reservation at the Gearhart Hotel was the Hammerhead Package, which included lodging, dinner and breakfast for two for a very reasonable price. Our room - #214 - was at the... More

We stayed two nights at the hotel and played their golf package. The building is old and beautiful and kept up with very nice upgrades. New carpet in our room, updated windows that opened to enjoy the breeze. Updated bathroom with a nice shower. We had a corner room 213 with a small view of the ocean and the view... More

We are experienced McMenamins travelers and absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms were clean and quaint with lovely decor. Like yogidon we stayed in room 204 and loved it. The Gearhart is located right across from the Oregon coast and it was such a delight to walk across the street and stroll along that beautiful beach. As a runner I... More

The room we stayed in, 204 was a corner room and had really nice views in two directions. It was very clean, nicely decorated. A great place for a romantic getaway. The only annoyance were the loud drunks in the parking lot at the bar's closing time.
