We have been coming to Gearhart by the Sea almost yearly for the last 23 years. The location simply can’t be beat! The staff is great, always with smiles and a desire to attend to your requests. The only complaint I have is that it seems that the pet rooms always seem to be a bit dingy. I’m paying $15/night for my pet because I would expect that the room is deep cleaned more often. Honestly, it’s not awesome when you walk in bare feet inside the condo and after a short time your feet are brown and dirty. They certainly vacuum, but steam cleaning the carpet more often should be a priority, plus mopping the kitchen floor after each checkout should occur, as it was obvious that didn’t happen in our condo. I will say, however, that the pricing is awesome in the winter and spring, and the location and service is enough to bump it to 4 stars. We will continue to return.

After my review here from a September stay the management team at the Gearhart really made up for the disaster that happen. They gave us a comp for the weekend and another weekend free of charge. So needless to say we are going to give it another try in March - so I will keep you updated - The front desk staff was extremely professional through this whole ordeal

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and left Sunday midday. The front desk staff was friendly, informative, fast, and efficient. The room was stunning and modestly decorated. Simple, clean, and cozy, it felt like home away from home with a spectacular view of the cliffside and far off into the Pacific. Our kitchen was perfectly stocked with everything we needed to make a provincial dinner. It's located in the heart of dining heaven, with beautiful and scenic coastal drives, PlUS if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle you've got miles of shoreline driving in your backyard. We definitely plan on making a return visit, possibly even an early Christmas holiday tradition. If you're looking to slow down for a fraction of the week, gorge on fresh dungenness crab and oysters, and spend quality time with yourself, your family, or a loved one like we were, I highly recommend Gearheart by the Sea.

Let me start by saying the view was magnificent. The rooms however were not. We had to upgrade because we made our reservations on line which did not specify you have to pay an extra $50 a night for hot tub access. Well the first upgraded room 688 was disgustingly dirty (refrigerator, bathrooms, stain on comforters etc) which they verified trust me and it smelled of mold and mildew and the decor was stuck in the 1970's. Then we were very quickly changed to 738 which slept 8 but we were 3. Sugar ants in master bath, caked on stain on base bedding. also confirmed by housekeeping. But we made this one work. Well at check out I asked for our $50 a night upgrade fee back and we were told we were going to get a 20% refund fee and that the property manager was out until Tuesday but would call me specifically that week they returned. We got the emails which stated this however as of today there is still no refund oh and most disturbing no phone call from the manager. Just so we are clear our weekend was 09/20/19 thru 09/22/19 Today is 10/03/19. Extremely disheartening we found this type of treatment at one of my favorite area's to visit.
