Stayed in the new hotel annex. Lots of wood on the walls. Corridors with vintage concert posters. Room was clean an comfortable. No microwave or refrigerator. Ice only available at front desk or bars in other building. Parking is behind building, with entrance and rooms 1 floor above the lot. Great setting for the golfer playing the adjoining links-style golf course, but not so much for the non-drinker guest. Beach is short walk or drive away Driving permitted on the beach (10th Street access). If I am not staying for the golf or nearby friends or relatives, I would rather stay 3 miles away in Seaside for short or long-term visit.

Hi Christopher, I'm glad the room was up to par(sorry, have to make that pun). We are very much golf friendly, as you've surmised from the course sitting behind us! :) We do take pride in that, to be sure. We'd love to get a second shot and show you how much more can be done in this little beach village our hotel calls home! Hope to see you again!

Hubby and I enjoyed our anniversary weekend here. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms that overlooked the golf course. We could see the course and part of the restaurant below. Every night there is a fire lit at the fire pit. Even though we were near the beach you can't see it from the hotel. Its ok though, the hotel and restaurant is protected by the other Gearhart by the Sea building across the street which blocks the wind. You can walk to the beach from the parking lot and its not that far. The style and atmosphere of this location is so relaxing and quiet. The staff pays attention to the smallest details which makes it easier to relax and enjoy what they have to offer. I love all the history and stories around the hotel that you can find on the wall at every turn. The food is amazing too! We would come back for sure!

Room Tip: if you want a little more quiet room choose the north side of the building or the annex building.

We stayed at Mcmenamins Gearhart Hotel on a recent trip down the coast. Some friends had told us about this chain and how neat their hotels are. I did live this hotel but I do have a few tiny complaints: one was the check in process. Maybe I was hot and tired but it was frustrating to me that the hotel check in was also the restaurant bar check in. A bit confusing. Then, our room was in the new building and we weren’t given very good directions on exactly where the entrance door was or where to park. So we did what everyone else did and parked in the no parking lane directly in front of the entrance and unloaded all our things before parking our car. Our room was nice and spacious with a comfortable bed and pillows. The decor is quirky but oddly inviting. I love all the light fixtures. The AC was great. We did have to do stairs with all our luggage because there is no elevator in the new building. We were fine with that but beware if you can’t do stairs you don’t want a room in that part. They didn’t tell us that at check in so just FYI...There is a hidden room which as I understand is a thing in all their establishments so that’s cool. The beers and cider on tap are fabulous and the food was really really good. Service at the bar and restaurant was phenomenal and everyone was friendly and engaging even at their busiest hours. You can’t see the beach from the hotel but it is a short walk. We enjoyed coming back for a cocktail and dinner at the hotel after seeing Elk on the beach. I am always annoyed at hotels without coffee available in the rooms and like so many others these days this one was a “lobby” coffee place. Which would be fine, but we had to be on the road again super early before coffee time. Slight annoyance but I’m getting used to this at hotels and despite those flaws that I would definitely stay there again.

We had a room in the recently-opened Annex, and everything was truly brand-new. Loved the knotty pine, and the bed was comfortably firm. Shower stall seemed as if it had never been used by anyone else. We appreciated the extra shelves in the bathroom, the easily-accessed wi-fi, and the high level of pet-friendliness (The pet policy was personalized [dog-al-ized?] for our pet!). And as with all McMenamins' properties, the hallways are a veritable museum--lots to see and read, and even a secret room to discover. A night here is not cheap, but for a special occasion it's the perfect choice.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a nice review. We like to make sure the pups feel special when they come to visit us out at the beach, too. Make sure to let us know you love the Annex next time you visit and we'll have a room over there for you again!

We had a business meeting here in part of the Livingston room. The room has no windows and we felt like we didn't get a chance to enjoy the property while there. The catering was very good, but with a small group, brought in warm with no heat to keep warm, so be careful about being ready to eat. The plate of cookies are so good. The service was consistent and unintrusive. The room was unique as most McMenamins' rooms are. I always appreciate the toiletries. The light blinding shades were ok but not perfect, mostly because there is only one small window. The noise was ok. I didn't need to put my ear plugs in.
