About Gearhart Hotel

A Scenic Oregon Coast Hotel

Walking Tour

On the northern Oregon Coast, just north of Seaside, lies the laid-back community of Gearhart, where you can choose pure relaxation or coastal adventure, ocean sunsets or a round of golf.

Gearhart Hotel & Annex

Gearhart Hotel is situated on the 18-hole Gearhart Golf Links—one of the oldest courses west of the Mississippi—and just across the dunes from the Pacific Ocean.

Select a guestroom in the original building or one in the 2018 cedar-shingled Annex, with echoes of the original hotel. King- or queen-sized beds, private bathrooms and televisions make your stay comfortable, and McMenamins signature artwork, touches of history integrated with Pacific Northwest coastal style make it intriguing.

Pub & Bars

Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Sand Trap Pub: Start your day with our house-roasted espresso or a Bloody Mary; stop in for a bite and a pint after a round of golf or a day of beachcombing. For some lively fun, check out our schedule of free music.

In fair weather relax on the patio, gather ’round the outdoor fire pit with a fresh juice cocktail, or duck into the Pot Bunker Bar, a cozy lair adorned with antique golf clubs.

The Sand Bar is nestled between sand dunes and rolling hills. Stop in for a handcrafted ale and burger in this cozy bar, complete with wood stove. Take note of the one-of-a-kind bar top, crafted from a tree struck by lightning at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse.

Ask for a meal to go; we’ll pack it up so you can dine on the beach!

Golf & Fitness

In the Annex you’ll find the Swingers Lounge Golf and Fitness Center – a virtual golf center by Foresight Golf, complete with a launch monitor and golf-specific workout area. Golfers can also enjoy a new 20,000-square foot putting green, designed with dips and swales.

The original Hotel Gearhart, built in 1890, was a popular summertime retreat for wealthy Portlanders and their families. Within a year or two, an informal golf course was laid out nearby (which evolved into today's 18-hole Gearhart Golf Links). The hostelry burned down in 1913, as did its successor, two years later. The third Hotel Gearhart opened in 1923, and remained an Oregon Coast landmark until being razed in 1972.

For decades and generations, the Sand Trap has been a lightning rod for camaraderie and epic gatherings of golfers and non-golfers alike. The place has survived dire economic downturns, war, even calamitous fire. In the context of the history of the remarkable beach community of Gearhart and a rich tradition of golf that predates almost all others in the Western United States, the Sand Trap's saga brims with some of the greatest characters, achievements and antics of the region.
