About Gearhart Hotel

A Scenic Oregon Coast Hotel

Now open: Our new three-story Annex! It mirrors the original hotel with its classic coastal cedar shingles and white trim. Inside are 16 additional guestrooms with bathrooms. We also added 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.
 
Nestled between sand dunes and rolling hills, we invite you to visit the new Sand Bar 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. This is also where to get the one new, just-for-fun stamp in your McMenamins Passport.

And there’s more: We added an expansive deck just outside the Pro Shop to welcome golfers starting (or finishing) their round, as well as a great place for anyone to sit and sip. 

Just four miles north of Seaside along the northern Oregon Coast, Gearhart Hotel is situated adjacent to the 18-hole Gearhart Golf Links—one of the oldest courses west of the Mississippi—and just across the dunes from the Pacific Ocean.

The 18 guestrooms feature king- or queen-sized beds, as well as private bathrooms and televisions. McMenamins' signature artwork adorns the rooms, integrating Pacific Northwest coastal style.

The Sand Trap Pub on the main floor offers breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Stop by for a casual meal after a round of golf or before a day at the beach.

Have a cocktail or clam chowder on the patio next to the firepit, or duck into the Pot Bunker Bar, a cozy lair adorned with antique golf clubs. Or ask for a meal to go and enjoy it on the beach.

In addition, event spaces are available onsite for weddings, meetings and events. For some lively fun, check out our schedule of seasonal free music on weekends.

Gearhart Hotel allows pets at select tables on the back patio, and in hotel rooms for a $15 fee.

History

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 it 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.
