Gearhart Ocean Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Gearhart B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2013

What a surprise to open the cottage door and find the king bed, glass top bedside tables, large flat screen tv, carrera marble tile shower, fine linens, large movie library, even s'mores on the beach offered. We traveled with another couple and had the best time picking up sea shells and dining with a view of Haystack. The perfect place to stay!

Room Tip: We liked #6 on the end

The room was well decorated and had everything we needed. It was a great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again. We met Tracy, the owner, and she was delightful. We highly recommend this place.

We like to run our standard poodle show dogs as much as we can and when traveling it is tough. This gem of a little hotel is perfect as it is located just down the street from miles of beautiful Oregon beach. Each unit is very quiet, well laid out with quality furnishings, and just right for a relaxing, non-rushed, wonderful time. The two bedroom units are very nice, and they provide extras for the four-footed guests. The short walk to the beach is invigorating, and the local restaurant literally right across the street is one of the best in the whole Cannon Beach-Seaside area. As a matter of fact when we stayed at Cannon Beach once we asked where some other great restaurants were, and we were told about the Pacific Way Cafe in Gearhart. That's how we found this hotel and have been back - to both the hotel and the restaurant - several times on the way back to WA from CA. Highly recommended.

Just right for a weekend getaway. People were friendly, room cute and clean. Two blocks away from a fabulous beach. One block away from an excellent bakery/restaurant and a small grocery store/deli. We had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend. Only wished we had two comfy chairs in the room instead of just one.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary in August 08 and had a wonderful time! The rooms are all updated in a super swanky and chic style. We used the tiny kitchenette to save money on some of our meals and although we didn't have a ton of room it worked great. The bathroom was really neat too. I especially liked the river rock on the shower floor.
We borrowed, at no charge, bicycles and rode them around town. I highly recommend that; it was really fun. We also borrowed Monopoly from the front desk and the attendant teased us and said, "Why would you want to ruin a good vacation?" But sure enough, we did get into a little tiff over Monopoly.
The location of this hotel is great too. Although it isn't right no the beach, it is within easy walking distance to the beach. There was also a great bakery and restaurant right across the street from the hotel.

Gearhart Ocean Inn was recommended to me by some coworkers. I was in the market for a weekend getaway, not too far from Portland, and offered a clean - peaceful - sanctuary from every day hustle and bustle. This recommendation was SPOT ON! The Inn is located right between the great Goonie town of Astoria and the wonderful coastal views of Cannon Beach - so we had plenty of activity, sights and restaurants to choose from. The beauty/charm of the Inn is the non-corporate atmosphere and privacy. If you are looking for a two night romantic stay along the Oregon Coast, definitely consider this spot - it won't disappoint.

Tips: Bring a deck of cards, 2 bottles of wine and some peaceful music. Also the cafe across the street is a MUST for morning coffee and pastries - comparable to Paris (odd comment I know, but go first then dispute me).

*Four stars only because I feel five star reviews are dismissed by most who value peer opinion.

Room Tip: Room 6 was great. Right on the end.

My husband and I spend almost every anniversary at the beach, (mostly cannon beach), but this year we decided to try something different and we were so happy we did. We had heard that Gearhart has great beaches and so we looked for a place to stay. There aren't a lot of choices, but the pictures of the ocean inn looked good so we booked our stay. What a pleasant surprise. The room was clean, cozy, and very tastefully decorated. We met the owner of the Inn, the morning of our 1st day. When she found out it was our anniversary, she surprised us by placing two huge chocolate chip cookies in our room with a card signed by staff and the bakery staff from across the street. What a treat!! Gearhart has everything you need to enjoy the weekend, without even going to another beach city. There is a restaurant, bakery with great treats and great coffee, and grocery store and candy shoppe. We didn't even make it to the few gift shops in town... Oh darn, another trip to Gearhart is in order. We would definitely stay at the Ocean Inn again. It just might become our favorite place to spend our anniversary weekend. Next time, maybe we can try the bikes out that everyone talks about...
