I can’t say enough about how much we enjoy staying here. It our north coast go-to every time. We’ve never been disappointed once except when it’s time to head home. It is close enough to Seaside and all their amenities but once you get back to your room it’s like you have a section of beach all to yourselves.

Stayed in G708 and would recommend it; if you don't want clean fresh sheets, towels or black hairs in the shower and on the toilet upon arrival. Please keep your socks on, as carpet hasn't been cleaned since 2004 maybe. Hope you love dog smell for a non pet unit. IF anyone was charged for a pet, they didn't use it for a bottle of Fabreze. The sliding doors don't lock and whistle from being old and broken. PVC tubing was the secure door lock. Recommended for fishermen, they smell like fish and are probably too drunk to know a terrible place to stay.

I randomly chose Gearhart by the Sea for a trip with my mom and aunt. Never did I think I would choose so wisely. Won of the greatest paid without seeing places I have ever visited. Quiet. Elevator. It was too far to walk to the beach, but the VIEW from our room was amazing, along with the fire. It was truly a perfect memory. Balcony a bit crooked and only one little store nearby, but we found what we needed.

I was trying to find a place that didnt charge a crazy amount for this time of year, but had a view of the ocean and was comfortable. It took 3 days of searching online and right before I was ready to give up on our first trip out of town since 3/2020, I stumbled onto Gearhart by the Sea. I am so happy I did!!! We stayed in G696, which is on the 4th floor with mostly SW views of the ocean, but its a wonderful view. On a clear day you can see all the way to Seaside from the balcony. Its a huge balcony by the way. Enough room to have at least 4 people comfortanbly sit in the nice beach chairs they have. The condo itself looks just like the photos. Clean, open floor plan, comfortable, calming and just a great place to unwind. The beds were comfortable, the couch was comfortable and the whole feel was...well comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessities we needed to stay in and cook. Including a blender! The owners really care about their place and it definitely shows. Since booking this place a couple weekends ago, I have booked a stay again for the future. We havent stayed in any of the other condos, but we found one we loved, so why try another??? The office staff was super polite, helpful and cheerful. The restaurant staff at the McMennamins directly across the way were also very polite and helpful. The only CON I could come up with is.. that the bedroom is next to the walkway to get to all the rooms and elevator on the 4th floor. So it may get loud if someone isn't being polite late at night or early in the morning. We didn't have any issues, but I can see that possibly being one. We are definitly going to keep coming back anytime we want to head to the North Oregon Coast.

Just stayed at Gearheart by the Sea in room 742. We booked last minute so not a lot of availability to chose from. Room 742 is dated, like the owner has done zero to the unit since the 1980’s. There is water damage on several walls in the unit that have not been repaired. The carpet is very old, faded, and stained. The shower heads are very low. I’m 5’5 and the shower head was at my shoulders. Toilet doesn’t flush well either. Curtains are coming off the rails. The plus, it was clean. Internet is terrible. Streaming just doesn’t happen. I would not stay in that unit again.
