Wonderful Inn!

Gables Inn was fantastic! Everything was absolutely perfect. The wine and cheese reception, the room, the towels, etc. was of the highest quality. We will be back.


SFO Trip

We were in SFO for a business trip and decided to to opt for a smaller more unique experience rather than a large hotel. Great decision and we will definitely stay at Gables Inn again. I love historical buildings and this was quaint, service was great and the continental breakfast was wonderful. It's in the heart of downtown Sausalito and walking distance to shops and restaurants..


great location lovely rooms

lovely place to stay!

Room was gorgeous, open and comfortable. Complimentary wine, cheese and fruit in a candlelit living room setting made the place warm and inviting immediately! Unfortunately they could not extend our check out time the next day even though we were running a 12k across the bridge into SF- that caused us to rush out in the morning and pack the car BEFORE our 730 am start time. I thought they should have been more understanding. But nonetheless, very comfortable, inviting space.


A really good find

This is a great B & B. Perfect location a block off the main drag. A nice patio, terrific breakfast and friendly staff. I especially enjoyed the evening selection of wine and cheese. My only complaint was the overnight parking at $20. This was not a public lot, but part of the property. I have stayed at very many B & Bs, and this was the first that charged for parking. Yes, I know it's Sausalito and a popular destination. Still, parking should be included.


Everything we expected plus MORE!

Our children's shoe company was having a shoot is Sausalito and we needed a central meeting location for our model to change. Not only was Gables Inn located in the middle of the best photography spots, they even had great photography spots right in their hotel! Everything from our personal patio to the shared outdoor patio was picturesque. The entire staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Amazing breakfast spread in the morning and you can't go wrong with complementary wine and cheese after a hard day's work. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! We recommend Gables Inn to anyone who wants to stay in Sausalito. There is no match to the service we received! PS. Thank you, Jennifer, for helping me jump start my car! :)


exceeded expectations

Stayed here for our anniversary. Everyone was friendly & helpful. Wonderful wine & cheese hour. Great breakfast too. Look forward to staying again!


Not perfect, but very nice

2.8 on April 20, 2015

What a great location! We also loved the layout of the Willow Room, very unique plus a nice balcony & view. We also enjoyed the fresh flowers thoughout the entire inn, and the fireplace & candles burning each evening. However, the room definitely needed to be refreshed. The carpet was stained, furniture & walls were scratched, bathroom doors needed a good cleaning & dated velvet headboard & big brown chairs needed to be replaced. But overall, we enjoyed our stay. In a very touristy town, we know we couldn't find a perfect place unless you wanted to pay a lot more & no guarantees with that either. Would we stay here again? Yes.


a real delight!

The Gables is a beautiful inn, close to everything in Sausalito, but just far enough above the fray to be quiet and restful. Our room was perfect, with an unsurpassed view, and enough privacy to keep the drapes open. Cissy and staff are friendly and attentive. And the late afternoon snack and wine makes you feel right at home. I'll recommend this to anyone, and hope to return.
