Would have rated very good but couldn't bring myself to do it because of the beds. The mattress was like a very cheap futon. Hard and lumpy. We've stayed in 2 other McMenamins Hotels and the beds were very comfy. So unless they change the beds at Gearhart we won't be back. Everything else was very good. Service at the...

We enjoyed our stay with one exception, and that was waking up with sore backs. The bed we had in our room was awful. No cushion at all and felt like we were sleeping down hill. When you pay good money for a room a good nights sleep is the most important!

Lovely setting. We really enjoy Gearhart, it is close enough to Seaside for the kids, but the Gearhart beach is much quieter and relaxing. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplaces and the food was delicious.

Our favorite package, the Hammerhead, is the same price year round. But on this December Friday the hotel is relatively quiet. After drink, salad and tots in the Pot Bunker bar during happy hour we went for a walk along the wide beach to see the beautiful sunset. Dinner in the Sand Trap Pub was fine: the burger, higher pappardelle...

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...

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...

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...
