For 180 dollars, you get a tiny room. But if you look towards the ocean, you'll see a building that blocks everything. Really-- you can do much better for the price. We stayed there because we had a gift card. If you do, use it at Edgefield. Oh yeah-- 15 days later, and there's still a pending charge on my... More

The hotel is nice enough, but if you are there during a heat wave, no AC, and no screens on windows. Room is pretty basic, but very clean- the only complaint would be the spiders that took up residence on the balcony. This is not an historic hotel, rather a newer (2000) building, built on the site of a previous... More

McMenamins is known for purchasing and restoring older properties to their former glory and this one (located on a golf course) is no exception. We had a corner room that was light and bright and clean. The bathroom was very large with a walk in shower. All it lacked was a closet. At first, when I didn't see a closet... More

Love this place! Excellent staff, good food, good vibe. Keep it going! This is a must stop on the Oregon coast and right next to the golf course at Gearhart. Take a stroll on the beach after lunch or head to the bar for a relaxed evening. #mcmenamins #gearhart # oregoncooast

We stayed two nights in two different rooms due to switching our reservation dates and the hotel being full. McMenamins has done another outstanding job with Gearhart. It is fun, relaxing, staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is decorated with great art. They are accommodating for dogs, with areas to eat outside designated pet friendly and they even...

We were excited to do a mcMenamins experience, we had stopped at the Edgefield hotel and were amazed with the grounds. We knew Gearhart would be different as it was a smaller hotel. We were not disappointed, it was quaint and cozy like every coastal pub and hotel should be. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We asked to change... More

Very disappointed after hearing others comment on this hotel chain. This was our first stay at a McMenamin's and likely our last. The room was expensive for what we got; a bed, a bathroom and an overhead fan. The room was way too hot, stuffy, small, and the fan was woefully inadequate even for the Oregon Coast. The elevator incredibly... More

Very nice hotel close to the beach. We loved the easy drive to other Oregon coast cities, Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach. The room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and overhead fan. The room is paneled floor to ceiling in wood giving a warm, cozy feeling. We love all of the McMenamins' touches, historical photos and decor. Don't... More

I have wanted to stay here for many years. We usually just stop in for a drink and snack. Having a McMenamins passport makes it even more inspiring to stay and enjoy the property and beach. The rooms are pretty, the space is cozy and classy, and you get reliable MeMenamins quality. I am really grateful to have been able... More

We had a great visit to the Gearhart Hotel. The food was great and service was also nice. We have our McMenamins passport and were able to get all our stamp's and our prize. The only drawback was that it was very expensive, $15.75 for a cheeseburger meal :O Wish we would have waited for happy hour
