This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We stayed 2 nights in a Classy Rustic room. Old wood paneling, older furniture to match. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Amenities are plenty at McMenamin's properties. If it wasn't for us wanting to go see the area, we would have never had to leave the hotel. There were 2 bars, an... More

Since first finding the McMenamins in Troutdale Oregon and a quick visit and lunch I've been fascinated with this place, looking forward to booking in the newest to join the McMenamin family in Bothell Washington. But after staying a weekend at McMenamins I am sorry to say I will be reconsidering. This hotel is in beautiful Gearhart Oregon, a short... More

My wife and I have had several stayed in several McMenamins establishments before and they have been very good experiences so, we looked forward to our first visit to their Gearhart Hotel. We were not disappointed, in fact we were delighted and now consider the Gearhart Hotel as our favorite. It is set on a golf course as it was... More

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
