Property's Favorite Review
Through the years we have stayed a few times at the Gearhart Ocean Inn cottages, and have never been disappointed. It's a family favorite! Gearhart is a family favorite! The cottages are located a block from the walk across the dunes down to the beach. And, they are across the street from the wonderful Pacific Way Bakery & Cafe. The bakery is operating on limited days and hours and sadly the cafe is currently closed. But, under normal circumstances, the location of the Ocean Inn Cottages is perfect! By the Way, a cute gift/coffee shop is across the street. The cottages are super clean, comfortable, and the innkeepers (owners ?) are very friendly, and helpful. The cottages have different configurations so be sure to read the descriptions so you choose what suits your needs. Truly, as soon as we left Gearhart we were hoping to return soon. And, we wouldn't stay anywhere else except the Gearhart Ocean Inn.

The moment that my wife and I pulled into the property, we were greeted by the friendly staff. We stayed during a long holiday weekend and it was perfect. Not only were the cottages clean and quiet, but the location of the property is perfect. It's a very short drive to Gearhart beach. The bakery across the street has the most delicious pastries. The location also allows any visitor to explore other areas as well - Seaside, Cannon Beach, Astoria - all within a short drive! We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back!

This property was perfect for a remote work getaway -- Clean, quiet, and has a great wi-fi signal. When I wasn't working a short trip two-block walk and I was enjoying the beach. The real treat was the short walk to the end of the property, where to my surprise there was a secret garden with a fire pit, games, and chairs for lounging. Such a great surprise! Can't wait to book a second visit.

Quaint and clean, beautiful floral around the grounds. My husband and I feel the service of their front desk is fantastic. It's like a 5star concierge. Rachel is the new manager and when I called to see what bakery they would recommend and told her pecan pie was a must (celebrating my husband's 60th and my son's bday as well), she made calls for me to narrow down the possibilities. Very accomodating and helpful with their bikes, and wagon for wood. My son even found they had a basketball he could borrow, and he and my husband played a game of horse at the public hoop a couple of blocks away. I hate to complain as I would highly recommend this lovely Inn but the mattress was hard on my back. We also agreed that the two loveseats have become pretty worn and soft. I was happy to hear that furniture is getting replaced soon by the new owners. I might also recommend that you bring an extra fry pan for cooking, there is one large one in the kitchen.

We stayed two nights at the Inn, which, because of our amazing accommodations, felt like we were in ocean paradise! The Inn was incredibly welcoming and it was more than just a place to sleep and keep our stuff. It was an integral part of making our time at the coast just a perfect getaway. We loved it!

We stayed for a couple of days at the Gearhart Ocean Inn during the recent heat wave. The inn has a great vibe. It's older but well maintained. We stayed in a one room unit with a kitchen. It has been updated with a nice bathroom. Although there isn't AC they had fans already running when we got there. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend a stay at the Gearhart Ocean Inn. Gearhart is a cute quiet area but so close to Seaside and Cannon Beach.

Thank you so much for your review! This is such a lovely destination, and we rarely get enough heat to warrant the use of A/C, but on the few days we do, we do the best we can to make your stay comfortable. The cool, crisp ocean air keeps our units temperate most of the year! I'm glad you were able to escape the heatwave with us!

We had the cutest one bedroom cottage, and it was very comfortable. We enjoyed having the kitchen and the gas fireplace. Their customer service is the best we've experienced ever, thanks to Rachel. The beach was a short walk and the famous 1892 Gearhart Golf Links down the street. Pacific Way Bakery is across the street and get there early as they run out later in the day. Bakery is currently open Friday to Monday, so plan your trip and try one of their delicious oatmeal cookies.

Reasonably priced and charming cottage with tiny kitchen to prepare your meals. Clean and updated with pleasant staff. We had a very restful stay in this place. There were windows in all the rooms, including the bathroom, and they take dogs. There was a nice outdoor area for guests with fireplace, barbecue and games.

My spouse and I stay here regularly. We highly recommend this place. The hostess Kathy is particularly wonderful. She always tries to accommodate our needs and she is a kind considerate person. This vintage motel is clean, attractive, comfy, and quiet. It's a short walk to a nice clean beach. Thanks for the hospitality! We will be back! Ann and Michael

I have never stayed anywhere that really feels like a home away from home quite like our adorable cottage at Gearhart Ocean Inn. My roommate and I went for a getaway and were absolutely blown away by their recommendations, the thoughtful touches, and the above and beyond amenities. Gearhart Ocean Inn is incredibly generous and will give you blankets and firewood if you want to cozy up by a fire, an array of beach bikes and great route recommendations for exploring, or let you borrow one of the many DVDs from their library if you're feeling like cuddling by the fireplace and watching a nostalgic movie. Whatever your mood, this staff will make you will feel well cared for, all free of charge. Genuine kindness is a priceless virtue Gearhart Ocean Inn has clearly mastered!

Dear Caroline, Thank you for your lovely review of your recent stay at the inn. We're happy that you both enjoyed our bikes and DVD library. The chilly, fall weather is perfect for cozying up around the firepit in our garden. We strive to provide a comfortable, fun and relaxing atmosphere for our guests. Your kind words of our staff and your stay let us know that we've accomplished our goal. Thank you, Caroline. We can't wait to welcome you back!
