“Fitzgerald Cottages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

What a pleasant surprise! We stayed in cottage 14. After we left we found out it had been featured in Sunset Magazine. I can see why. It had two bunk beds for kids... very charming little room for them. The firepit and nice secluded yard out back were perfect for a fire and star viewing. We could walk to an amazing beach. Everything was clean and well stocked. They even supplied the firewood. For a romantic getaway I don't know if this could be beat.

First things first, the bad reviews are dated or specific to road repairs.

Our trip was booked for Sept 14 - a two night stay. We met the owner Traci on check in. She was most pleasant - the room was as described.

What we loved - directly next door to the bakery and restaurant - the supermarket and the ice cream store! Under 10 minutes to the beach and a short jaunt to McMenamin's Sand Trap.

We have stayed previously in Seaside, Cannon Beach and Pacific City. We will now add Gearhart and the Ocean Inn to our preferred list. We had unit #3 and loved it. Very clean. Great internet. Flat screen tv, Yes you park on gravel - life is hard - so is gravel. Move on.

We will be back! Room was spacious for a couple on a get away run. I would want more space if staying for more than 3 nights.

Room Tip: No Pool or Work out room - good cruisers bikes available.

Lovely place -- clean, well-appointed, fully-equipped and situated close to a charming old neighborhood. There is a glorious beach within easy walking distance, too. We will definitely return to Gearhart Ocean Inn!

We have stayed here several times, we love that we can bring the dogs and the accomodations are wonderful! The staff is very attentive. I left my cosmetics bag and the owner called as we were driving back to Portland. Since she lives nearby, she brought them back with her and I got them the next day! The kitchen is well appointed and the linens are first class. It's charming and cozy and easy walk to the beach and town (2 blocks). The garden is a delighful place to have a glass of wine or cup of coffee. Highly recommend.

Gearhart Ocean Inn was by far the best part of our vacation – well, the beach didn’t hurt either! We were lucky enough to stay in Gearhart for a total of six days over Labor Day weekend. I was a little skeptical about booking since we aren’t really B&B people and that is what it is listed under on Tripadvisor. These are cute, quaint, and completely fitting beach cottages for a relaxing family vacation. There isn’t a community breakfast or the room feel of a Bed and Breakfast. These are wonderful separate cottages. Our family of 4 stayed in the one bedroom cottage (#10 non – pet room). We originally wanted a 2 bedroom or one of the Fitzgerald cottages but, I think people have caught on to how special this place is and those were already booked 5 months out!

The upstairs bedroom had a double bed and a single twin. The owners were helpful enough to provide a pack and play for our 2 year old to sleep while our 4 year old slept in the twin. Even though this was listed as a 3 person unit, there was still plenty of room for all of us not to feel cramped. Our unit was very clean and taken care of very well. The sand that we carried back from the beach was swept and vacuumed daily. The only semi-ick thing that we experienced was the old sponges in the kitchen left from previous renters. I couldn’t bring myself to wash dishes with a sponge that has been used…and I didn’t know what on or how long it was there. We just walked literally 2 minutes to the grocery store and replaced it. This might have been noticed since the next day we had backup sponges placed under the sink. :)

Tracy, Lynette, and Abby were fantastic!! We were planning our next visit while still vacationing!

Room Tip: There seemed to be lots of families with babies (including ours) we didn't hear a peep of any cr...

What a charming cottage inn. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed playing croquet in the garden with a glass of wine. We hoped to sit by a fire, but with two small children it never came to be. The town is quaint and has everything one could need and the short walk to a beautiful beach was great. The staff was pleasant and accommodating.

I almost hate to give it a good review, so we can keep it to ourself.

This was my first trip to the Oregon coast. I relied on the descriptions in reviews on Tripadvisor in choosing my hotel. The descriptions and reviews were accurate-The Gearhart Ocean Inn is the perfect location on the Oregon Coast. The rooms were charming and cozy. The staff was ready to attend to every request. I was traveling solo and felt very comfortable and safe. I highly recommend the Inn and the Town of Gearhart. I plan to return to Oregon and I will stay here again.
