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

Great location! Only wish it were on the beach, but, it's only a block away and a 5 minute walk. Very lovely views from restaurant, rooms and room patio. Extremely quiet room, we slept very well. Someone was setting off fireworks but other than that all was well. Would be great if they had more activities or restaurants like some... More

We stayed in a King Room with a private bath. Everything was very clean and the room was very quiet. (I'm sure this is not the case if you stay on a weekend, but we stayed on a Wednesday and no issues with noise). Staff were all pleasant and accommodating. I would stay here again if I was in Seaside... More

The hotel is a lovely place and has several choices for rooms. We had a Queen room, which was cozy and had a large bathroom and shower. I am not one to care if I have a view, so we had a room without one. There are some that view out over the Golf Course available. The staff are very... More

Thank you for your review. Good to hear the staff were friendly and interested in the Historicity of the property. Our coffee service upstairs should be at 7am, so not sure why we were late that morning. Thanks again, I hope we see another time. Owen Craig McMenamins Hotel Management. More

We went a bit early this time and they were only serving breakfast. I asked them if they served beer at breakfast and our server said "of course". I normally would not have beer for breakfast but I get here so seldom and love their brews. So I found out that Hammerhead goes great with bacon and eggs...and Terminator goes... More

We took our dog to the coast during a quiet winter week and had a nice time in Gearhart. The room was large enough with a king bed and a small table for working at a laptop with a cup of coffee. We had a nice view of the golf course (we don't golf) and the sunrise each morning. The... More

Thanks for your review. Sounds like you had a nice, pleasant & relaxing time. Thanks for bringing your pooch too; we definitely provide dog amenties, I'm not sure how we missed that on a 60lb dog, sorry about that. We have treats at the desk as well as a dog bowl and towel placed in the room. We'll double down... More
