We have stayed at most of the McMenamins hotels, some of them like Edgefield many times. It is so close to everything in Gearhart. We love that they kept to the theme of the McMenamins, with their traditional historic restoration style, murals, various antiques, wood and brass detailed railings, moldings and bar and of course we are a member of...

If you're looking for a nice hotel on a nice golf course this is your place. Not only is it a very nice place to stay, but the restaurant is in typical grand McMenamins style of having really great food. Not just pub grub. My husband and I always hit a McMenamins whenever we come up to the Pacific Northwest.

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

The hotel is located just a shorty walk from the beach and on the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi. You are just a ten minute drive from Seaside and twenty minutes to Astoria. Nightly rates are a bit pricey, and the facility really has no extra amenities; hot tubs, pools, fitness center etc. Some of the McMenamins properties... 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.

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
