I was trying to find a place that didnt charge a crazy amount for this time of year, but had a view of the ocean and was comfortable. It took 3 days of searching online and right before I was ready to give up on our first trip out of town since 3/2020, I stumbled onto Gearhart by the Sea. I am so happy I did!!! We stayed in G696, which is on the 4th floor with mostly SW views of the ocean, but its a wonderful view. On a clear day you can see all the way to Seaside from the balcony. Its a huge balcony by the way. Enough room to have at least 4 people comfortanbly sit in the nice beach chairs they have. The condo itself looks just like the photos. Clean, open floor plan, comfortable, calming and just a great place to unwind. The beds were comfortable, the couch was comfortable and the whole feel was...well comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessities we needed to stay in and cook. Including a blender! The owners really care about their place and it definitely shows. Since booking this place a couple weekends ago, I have booked a stay again for the future. We havent stayed in any of the other condos, but we found one we loved, so why try another??? The office staff was super polite, helpful and cheerful. The restaurant staff at the McMennamins directly across the way were also very polite and helpful. The only CON I could come up with is.. that the bedroom is next to the walkway to get to all the rooms and elevator on the 4th floor. So it may get loud if someone isn't being polite late at night or early in the morning. We didn't have any issues, but I can see that possibly being one. We are definitly going to keep coming back anytime we want to head to the North Oregon Coast.

Just stayed at Gearheart by the Sea in room 742. We booked last minute so not a lot of availability to chose from. Room 742 is dated, like the owner has done zero to the unit since the 1980’s. There is water damage on several walls in the unit that have not been repaired. The carpet is very old, faded, and stained. The shower heads are very low. I’m 5’5 and the shower head was at my shoulders. Toilet doesn’t flush well either. Curtains are coming off the rails. The plus, it was clean. Internet is terrible. Streaming just doesn’t happen. I would not stay in that unit again.

What a fantastic crew, and room! Friendly, helpful, FAST! We had a sick room that the kids loved as did we. Beautiful view. Comfortably slept 6. I will never stay anywhere else at the coast and I’m kind of upset that I’ve been here 40years and have just now discovered this gem.

This was our second visit to Gearhart by the Sea and it met every one of our expectations, even amidst global hysteria and uncertainty. After months of quarantine and sheltering in place it was necessary for us to get out, enjoy the peace and wonder of the Pacific, and leave the house. Gearhart was the obvious choice with the fast and friendly customer service, the confidence in cleanliness, and proximity to the sights in Astoria, food and play in Seaside, and of course the available option to drive down the beach (our favorite part). Gearhart by the sea is within walking distance to the sandy beaches (where I would visit in early mornings), it offers spectacular views of both the ocean and the mountainside, and even with a full parking lot I never heard even a crack of a floorboard from another room. Our particular room slept 2 adults and up to two kids comfortably, a sweet kitchen with all standard appliances,a cozy wood burning fireplace, and lovely/understated beach decor. Not a single word of disappointment regarding our summer weekend here. Thank you to the staff and owners for making it possible to enjoy such a beautiful place at an affordable rate.

An old condo facility in Gearhart. Great location and very quiet - ocean on one side and the Gearhart golf course on the other side. Nice little pub in the check-in area. Downtown is walkable from the condo but not much of anything - except a good bakery - Pacific Way Cafe. Room is large and equipped with cooking utilities. However, quite dated. Within 3 miles, you can drive to Seaside with many choices for restaurants etc.
