“Good value, great location in Gearhart, OR”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A solid value for the cost of the room, ask for the AAA rate. The room and building was basic but had a great view of the beach and ocean. The beach is a two minute walk from the room. The McMin. Restaurant and pub is right across the street with great pub food and a nice selection of beer. A few minutes by car to cute bakery and coffee shop in Gearhart.

We have stayed at this condo style rental a couple of times in the past, 1 good stay and 1 not-so-good stay (carpet had pet odor, furniture was well worn and old!). Each condo is individually owned and decorated, so you really have to preview the pictures online to make sure you are choosing a condo that will suit your needs and expectations. We found a wonderful, hardwood floor condo that would accept pets - minimal, but neatly decorated, but very spacious and neat. It was perfect for our family, 2 bdrm., large balcony with ocean view, easy to get to the pet "potty" area with potty bags & garbage conveniently provided. Nice, short walk to the beach, adequate pool, and a great price. We will be looking to rent this unit again in the future!

Room Tip: Make sure you preview the condo photos online, and if you want a pet room, I would recommend a condo...

The room # 633 was partial ocean view not ocean front. The room was very old 80's furnitures, pop corn ceiling and ugly wall paper. The bed and blankets were old and smelly too. We were very uncomfortable to sleep there. Also, the restaurant "Sand Trap" was disappointed too. My order Baby rib was cold and tiny 2 pieces. If you are not golfer I don't recomend this place.

I am sorry that your stay was not what you expected you should have been told when you made your reservation that your unit has a Soutwest ocean view. The owners of this unit have recently put in new furniture and wallpaper. Regarding the blankets they should have been clean and in good shape I will address the blankets in that unit and thank you for bringing that to my attention.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the start of a week long trip through Oregon. Our condo had been recently updated and was clean and comfortable. The resort is set back from the Ocean and is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. We were on the second floor and had a nice unobstruced view of the ocean. It was cool and cloudy when we were there so after walking the beach, we opted to play nine holes of golf at the links course across the street and ended the day with a nice dinner and drinks at McMenamins. Everyone we met was very friendly and accomodating. There is not a lot to do immediately around the resort other than the beach (which would be amazing if it had been a little warmer), so we drove down to Cannon Beach the next day to walk through the shops and eat. A short 10 to 15 minute drive. We were very pleased with the resort and felt it was a good value for the money. We would definitely come back.

Over the years we have stayed at this property several times, and most of the condos have a wonderful view of the ocean; however the furnishings have become very outdated. Our toilet seat was permanently stained - most of the furniture should be donated to Goodwill - the table on the outdoor patio was rusted, and if the ocean disappeared it would be a very depressing atmosphere.
Perhaps because of the high demand for rooms on the Oregon coast during peak season the owners really have no economic reason to invest in updating their condos.

We had a great time staying at gearhart by the sea. The unit was clean and well maintained. Gearhart is the most charming town on the Oregon coast. The golf course across the street is very nice and the Mcmenamins across the street is the best one we have been to. We had a problem with the cable tv but the problem was dealt with in the most professional manner. We will go back to gearhart by the sea.

Clean, full kitchens, amazing view and beach access. The units are owned by individuals, so decor etc varies. Less than 10 minute drive to downtown Seaside. Friendly and accommodating staff. No complaints!
