We have stayed at several McMenamin's properties and have always liked them for their charm and uniqueness. The hotel in Gearhart is nice and the room was comfortable, however the hotel lacks that special something that can be found at other properties especially The Edgefield and The Grand Hotel.
The property is not on the beach, but it is a short walk away. There is no ocean view, so don't go with that expectation.
We are not golfers, but I'd guess that if you golf you'd really like this location. However, aside from golf there are no other amenities like a day spa, soaking pool, or theater that can be found at other properties.
The restaurant serves the usual McMenamin's fare and was enjoyable.
We did attend a dinner in honor of James Beard that had 7 or 8 courses and wine pairings for each. That was a lot of fun,
Overall, we had a nice stay but I was not over the moon about this particular McMenamin's offering,
