Gearhart Ocean Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Gearhart B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Gearhart is such a beautiful and charming little town and the beach is gorgeous and almost always nearly empty compared to nearby Cannon Beach. If you're not renting a house, the Gearhart Ocean Inn is really the only place of any quality to stay. Luckily, the staff at the Inn is wonderfully helpful and the rooms are very comfortable, stylish and clean. There's nothing fancy about this sweet little spot, but the linens are crisp, the beds are comfortable and the seating area is very inviting.

The only downside is that it can be a little noisy in the morning if you're a sleeper-inner. And the showers (at least in room 12) aren't super hot.

Very nice place, with very clean well appropriated cottages. Very comfortable for two. Perfect sized kitchen bath, and bedroom. This was a first stay at the Gearhart Ocean Cottages. Quiet location, easy to walk to the beach and close by Gearhart services (some one black away). Bikes and movies available too. We will come back to visit again.

Love this place!! Plenty of beach bikes to ride, very comfortable beds and living space, lots of Stash Tea and good coffee provided daily, all the utensils, and dishes, pots, pans even a wine opener provided, gas grill and fire ring stocked with wood and set up for us! plenty of outdoor eating and a beautiful garden, best trip I've taken in a long time.

Room Tip: they have adjoining cabins for large groups worked out great for 7 people, get free bikes and movies...

Just got back from a trip along the Oregon coast and our first stay was at the Gearhart Ocean Cottages. Perfect spot to settle for 3 days. We stayed in cottage 14. A fully stocked kitchen (dishes, pots, etc.) and one very roomy, clean bathroom (great shower head and plenty of towels).
The private patio and fire pit was a bonus. The location was great, just a short walk to the beach.
Unfortunately, our last night and next morning was unpleasant due to the loud person in cottage #15 (14 & 15 are connected by a door) talking non-stop on their phone.
Otherwise we had an excellent stay and would love to come back.

Room Tip: Cottages 14 and 15 are tucked away about a block from the main cottages

After a couple of years away, we made it back to one of our favorite places on the North Coast. There's new paint and some other renovations, and it's still a great place for heading off to a different spot each day or just hanging out - it's one of our favorite places to do nothing. A block from a great bakery and restaurant, and a small but well-stocked grocery (and a just a few miles from Seaside if you need something larger), and a few blocks to the ocean. Reminds me of summers on Cape Cod National Seashore. Friendly and accommodating staff, including the owners.

Room Tip: Split-levels can get a little warm in the bedroom when it's hot (rare), so ask for a fan - rooms...

We live in Tucson and own a condo in downtown Portland. We enjoy a night at the beach early in the week. We heard of the Gearhart Ocean Inn on the Today show and had to give it a try. In the past, we have stayed at much more upscale resorts on the coast. The Ocean Inn was a terrific surprise. The room was spacious and very appealing. The owner/manager/concierge/etc was simply wonderful. Gearhart is close enough to Seaside and Cannon beach for those seeking more action. The Pacific Cafe across the street is one of the very few good restaurants we have found on the coast. All in all, get to the Gearhart Ocean Inn as soon as possible!!

Great hotel with great hospitality. Tracy the owner was eager to help us make our first trip to Gearhart a special one. We l loved the common area with the fire pit - a great place to have a quite glass of wine and read a book.
