We wanted to spend an early spring coast getaway with the two grandkids, and I was shocked at the cost of rents at "cookie cutter" not that well built 2 bedroom accomodations with a covered pools in Seaside proper. A number of years ago I had stayed here with friends (that time in a dog-friendly unit.). My memory was of...

Staff from Sheri and Tami at the front office, Buddy who is on top of everything to hard working and helpful housekeeping staff at Gearhart by the Sea Condos are GREAT. The condos are comfy, full kitchens (much appreciated because with celiac disease - can not eat out at all!) and superb ocean view. Paradise. Highly recommend always so clean,...

Room 609 is where we stayed... I will start with the grounds, staff etc... The grounds are nice and the walk to the beach is not that far away but for some you just may want to drive. Nice restaurant at McMenamin's (where the office is), nice lounge and amazing bartenders... The staff who run the condos are kind and...

Thanks for staying with us. I also appreciate you letting us know about the soafabed mattress. We replaced it with a new one. The drains should not be slow so I will ask maintenance to address that Thanks, Paul

Before booking here, we kept looking for reviews and didn't find many so we wanted to make sure to get one out. Although spacious enough, the uncleanliness made it very uncomfortable to enjoy. We are staying in room 609. The units are all indivually owned and decorated so hopefully it is just this one that is bad. The unit is...

We always enjoy travels to the Oregon coast, with our stays at Gearhart By The Sea. The location supports our daily adventures which extend from Ilwaco, WA to Tillamook, OR. Over the course of time we have discovered a suite which we enjoy as the one for our trip. Whether watching the ocean surf from our room, or taking a...

My husband and I were on our way back to Ohio with our 2 children after driving to Oregon for vacation. We intended to stop for the night in Seattle but after stopping in Seaside/Gearhart for our first look at the Pacific, we decided to skip Seattle and enjoy a night on the ocean. After doing a Google search for...

It's been a good many years since we've stayed at Gearhart by the Sea. It's nice having a links golf course right there, as well as a McMenamin's restaurant and bar. The spaciousness of the ocean view condo was great, however, our particular unit seemed to need some updating and deep cleaning, particularly of the upholstered furniture. Granted, we travel...

As mentioned in other reviews, all of the condos are individually owned and are independently decorated and maintained. For this reason it is important to look at the pictures online first for the particular unit that you want. Some will be well updated and others will be quite out of date. We have stayed in two different units and were...

It's difficult to rate this place as all the condos are individually owned so they are all different depending on how conscientious the owner is about keeping his unit updated. I can only rate unit 673 and the exterior surroundings. Our unit was a one-bedroom unit in need of some TLC. The mattress badly needed replacing, as did the dishwasher...

Gearhart is one of many gems along the Oregon coast. Quaint, largely underutilized, and close its bigger attraction Seaside without the hustle and bustle that makes Seaside feel more like So Cal than Oregon. Gearhart by the Sea is a reasonably priced place to stay. Comprised of privately owned condominiums, individual room experiences depend largely on which room you rent...
