Home away from home

4.8 on September 15, 2018

I always stay at the Gables when I’m in the area-1-2 times a year. It just feels like home with friendly staff, unique rooms ( I think I’ve stayed in most of them and there isn’t a bad one), nice breakfast, social hour, great location. You can’t go wrong!

Great Sausalito location

4.6 on September 08, 2018

Beautiful room and amazing breakfast; really enjoyed the ambiance and appreciated the complimentary wine and cheese.

Lovely Inn and a Great Location

4.8 on September 01, 2018

We stayed one night in the upstairs Lilac Room and had a very large balcony with a side view of the Bay and San Francisco. There were no elevators or air conditioning but it isn't typically hot in Sausalito and the Inn provides portable fans for air movement. Our balcony faced another guest room balcony, so there was a bit of a privacy issue. However, the evening wine and cheese reception and morning breakfast more than made up for that, along with $25/night parking which is a bargain in Sausalito. And we were a half block walk from Bridgeway, the main road through Sausalito and close to everything in town.

A very special getaway

4.6 on August 31, 2018

We asked for a view and got a spectacular view. The room was large, comfortable, full of natural light and had a lovely, sunny balcony where we could sip coffee, enjoy a picnic lunch and watch the ferry and sailboats come and go. Onsite parking is a plus in this perfectly located inn. We could easily walk everywhere in town, yet the hidden location was quiet and serene. The serve-ourselves breakfast had plenty of choices to start our days. We'll definitely be back.

Disappointed- not safe

2.0 on August 24, 2018

I've stayed here before and had guests stay, but never on the bottom floor. Not safe-- public access patio (can't open windows) and door to outside with no lock!? my neighbors complained; but 'thats always been that way'. They say 'the outside gate' locks; but they don't say the patio has side public access from the parking lot. I was told the patio was private. I came out of the shower to find a man on my patio. I rushed to close the windows and curtains--makes for a very dark small room. I arrived from evening events at 10:30; my room key did not work. I called the number on the lobby desk-- waited 20 min for a young man from the sister hotel down the street, who tells me he does not fix keys- he ran back to the other hotel. 30 min later I get in my room. He again told me the outside doors do not lock. For $350 a got little sleep and would not recommend this. My local hosts were shocked

Lovely Inn in a Great Location

4.6 on August 21, 2018

We took a one night getaway to Sausalito and discovered The Gables Inn. It was not even a half block walk to Bridgeway, the main street through town. We stayed in the Lilac Room that had a large deck with a corner view of the bay and San Francisco. The only downside was our balcony was directly across from another room's balcony, so privacy was a bit of an issue.We were there when the weather was 70 degrees and there is no air conditioning but they did provide a large portable fan in the room which kept us cool. We really enjoyed the nicely done late afternoon complimentary wine/cheese reception and delicious breakfast the next morning. Plus it was only $20 to park, which is a really good deal compared to other hotels/inns in Sausalito. Will definitely stay here again.

We love staying at the Gables.

4.8 on August 19, 2018

A wonderful place. Easy to get to, and a great location to walk Sausalito. Also a great breakfast and wine tasting in the evening.

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 on July 28, 2018

We needed to be in SF for a medical appointment and wanted to stay in the area the night before. Gables Inn beats anything in SF hands down, beautiful views out on the balcony, great staff, wine and cheese, great local restaurants, no crowds... highly recommended!

Weekend Retreat

5 on July 28, 2018

Me and a friend stayed at the Gables in Sausalito California for a couple of nights as a girls weekend getaway. The room was fabulous. We had a downstairs room with a fireplace, windows that open to the outside breeze coming in off of the bay. We plan to return every few months to this Inn to relax and feel pampered. The Inn is very hospitable with lovely healthy breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening. The location is exceptionally close to everything. You can park your car for the weekend and walk everywhere.

Decent Place

3.0 on July 26, 2018

This room was ok. For the price I will not be staying here again I don’t think. There was no hairdryer which I thought to be odd. I think every hotel I have stayed at in the last 10 years had a hairdryer. There was also no garbage can in the bathroom which I also thought was a bit odd. The room was stuffy and th AC didn’t work so we had to open the windows and I was awoken a couple times during the night to noises coming from outside. There was an old fan in the room but it was broken and you couldn’t move and position the fan head to be where you wanted it to be. $20 extra for parking was a bummer too. There were only about 6-7 parking spaces in an awkward little lot and having to pay $328 for one night was too much considering.

Had a wonderful experience! Very nice little hotel in an incredible location. Loved the wine and cheese in the evenings!

Friendly helpful staff. Lovely fresh flowers. The wine and cheese reception was fun.

Had a Nice Experience - Very nice staff

3.6 on June 28, 2018

Everything about The Gables Inn was fabulous. Location was perfect. The only negative thing for us is that it was a hot couple of days and night and the rooms have no air conditioning. I think it's not typically that hot there. They put a large floor fan in our room that helped.

Brillliant Location

3.0 on June 27, 2018

The location of the Inn makes this a great choice to stay. There are a few issues that need sorting - the king bed we had in Room 205 The Alder room was terrible. It sagged into the middle. Likewise the pillows were terrible. Let’s get some king size pillows instead of those lumpy little pillows. Breakfast on the weekend didn’t start till 8.00am and on both mornings we were “out and about” by then so that’s not great. On the positive, great location, beautifully decorated rooms and very clean bathroom so all in all, its a yes.

Sweet B & B. Would totally recommend and stay again. Great location

Great alternative to San Francisco

4.6 on June 03, 2018

This a great alternative to staying in San Francisco. Staff is great. The rooms are bigger than city hotel rooms. Its a convenient location to San Francisco and other areas.

Great location!

4.8 on April 20, 2018

This hotel is right up the street from the main area of Sausalito. The service was outstanding and the room was adorable. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful wonderful

5 on April 13, 2018

Recent stay for 4 nights couldn’t have been better¿¿staff extremely friendly and service great. The lobby area for breakfast and wine in the evening was wonderful. A great experience down to the umbrellas that were available during the Pineapple Express! Only downside was we had to end our stay! We will definitely be back!

Home away from home

4.8 on April 12, 2018

I've stayed at The Gables many times. It just feels like home. The communal breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese are wonderful, the rooms are not cookie-cutter and the staff are always pleasant and helpful. Great location and ideal for relaxing

Comfortable B&B

5 on March 27, 2018

The Gables Inn is a great place to stay. The photos on the web site are a great example of what you will see when you arrive. The room was very comfortable, and the service was excellent. It is a short walk to the down town area. I would highly recommend.

Lovely Sausalito and amazing Gables Inn

4.8 on March 26, 2018

We loved our stay. The rooms were fantastic, the staff and guests friendly and helpful. Also, loved, loved, loved the evening cheese and wine. Thank you for making our stay special. Helen Francis and Heiko Leers

Great accommodations in Sausalito

5 on March 14, 2018

Great location on the main street. Close to everything. Outstanding happy hour and breakfast. Staff is awesome.

Romantic Engagement Trip

5 on March 02, 2018

We reserved this room for our trip, and at the time, unbeknownst to one of us, it was going to become our engagement trip to San Francisco! We checked in shortly after my fiancee proposed to me at the Marin Headlands, and we were giddy with excitement. Our room was lovely (the Redwood Room) and somewhat larger than expected. It was well appointed with lots of yummy goodies and extremely inviting and luxurious. I was a bit concerned the room would be somewhat noisy since it is right next to the lobby (where breakfasts and afternoon drinks & cheese are served) but no, we didn't hear a single peep. The hotel is in a wonderful location... a quick stroll down the street and you're on the main drag in Sausalito and the views are magnificent. The complimentary breakfast was excellent, as was the cheese & wine. We completely enjoyed our stay there! Literally the only thing I would say was an issue was that the reception for my cell phone was non-existent at the hotel. We had many people to call with our wonderful news, and we were unable to do so given the cell phone reception. Otherwise, we had an amazing stay at the Gables and I would recommend it to anybody going to Sausalito.

my 5 night stay

4.0 on February 17, 2018

it was in a good location and nice people ann comfortable

The Gables Inn

3.8 on January 11, 2018

We had a beautiful room with a spectacular view. The staff was friendly and welcoming and allowed us to check in early. The price was high - we only stayed one night, but thoroughly enjoyed spoiling ourselves with this quick get-a-way. We did not use the onsite dining, so I cannot give it a rating.

Great staff, good location, unsatisfactory room though.

2.8 on January 10, 2018

4 couples stayed here in separate rooms. There was no hot water in our shower. This was reported Friday evening. We had to shower in one of the other couples rooms. We were told Saturday that the issue was fixed. Saturday evening there was still no hot water in the shower. One of us took a cold shower and the other decided to just wait and shower at home the next day. We understand things happen and it is especially difficult to have an issue fixed on weekends, but you should not have to pay full price ($385 per night) when you have no hot water and are unable to shower. That being said, the staff was outstanding. They were very kind and accommodating. The wine and cheese evening social and continental breakfast was great!

Great view from Room #305

4.2 on January 03, 2018

Beautiful room, wonderful bedding and bath towels, comfortable bed and, again, a fantastic view!

Great place

5 on January 03, 2018

Great place to stay, room was very comfortable and clean, good continental breakfast and cheese and wine evening :-) will definitely stay there again:-)

Time for a renovation

3.4 on December 31, 2017

Property is beginning to show its age and is in need of a renovation. Had the chance to stay in their nicest accommodation but there are badly needed touch ups needed. Bedside tables need to be sanded and re-stained. Wood work around tub has dry rot. Old TV armoire needs to be replaced. Lobby floor needs to be sanded and re-stained.

Wonderful place!

4.8 on December 26, 2017

Great location. Charming inn. Lovely evening wine and cheese reception and breakfast. Staff is very accommodating.

What a find!

4.8 on December 18, 2017

The Gables Inn was fabulous! We arrived in the evening and were greeted with wine and cheese with crackers (gluten-free!) and grapes in the cozy lobby by the fireplace. Our room was lovely and very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was the best continental breakfast I've seen--fresh and delicious fruit, bagels, croissants, cereal, etc. I'm gluten-free, and there were GF options upon request. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Location is great too--on a quiet street right off the main road. I would definitely stay there again next time I visit Sausalito!


5 on November 29, 2017

We have stayed at The Gables Inn in Sausalito many times and each visit is a delightful and memorable experience. The setting is beautiful; only a very short walk to the harbor, with wonderful shops and restaurants and the ferry to downtown San Francisco. The staff is super in every way (almost like family, the ones you really like). Breakfast is great as is the late afternoon wine and cheese experience. We appreciate how well we are received and treated and are already looking over our calendars to plan a return visit.

A lovely place to stay.

5 on November 18, 2017

We really enjoyed staying at The Gables Inn in Sausalito. We were pleasantly surprised at how quaint and cozy this lovely place was and the morning breakfast was fantastic and healthy. We plan to stay here again in any future trips to the area.

Quaint B&B

3.2 on October 30, 2017

Quaint B &B in the heart of Sausalito. Very handy to everything. A little disappointed in the room. Everything just felt a bit tired. Great views and good breakfast. Beware no lifts and lots of stairs.

Perfect location

4.8 on October 09, 2017

Wonderful stay at the Gables Inn. Perfect location with access to everything. Even walked to the Bay Model. Room was very clean and tidy.


4.6 on October 05, 2017

Very nice location and the staff was very helpful. Rooms with a view of the Bay bridge and a nice balcony to enjoy in the morning or afternoon.

Stay at gables

4.6 on September 25, 2017

We were greeted by a friendly staff that was helpful and courteous from check in until our departure. Rooms were clean and view of san francisco bay was amazing. The complimentary breakast was the best we have ever had and michael the manager made us feel right at home and we will recommend and hope to return someday


4.6 on September 25, 2017

Great location and very nice rooms! Breakfast was super and fresh.

Charming Sausalito Inn

4.2 on September 18, 2017

Sweet inn nestled in downtown Sausalito. Walking distance to many stores, restaurants and the bay. Nicely appointed room.

great B & B

4.4 on September 04, 2017

Very welcoming home from home, breakfast very good, beds excellent, people helpful and friendly. Every thing you would want from accomodation

Anxiously Waiting to Go Back

4.6 on August 29, 2017

Super quaint and great staff. Centrally located and in walking distance to all the conveniences. Pleasantly surprised with the establishments ambiance. Our room had a spectacular view of the bay. Daily continental breakfast was to the next level; various fresh fruit ie pineapple, strawberries, yogurt, danishes and the etc. My comments are not an accurate depiction as it The Gables is so much more.

Wonderful Stay!

5 on August 28, 2017

I had only planned on staying at The Gables Inn for one night, but extended my stay to three nights. One night was in the Willow Room, and the last two nights were in the Lilac Room. Both rooms had private balconies, a fireplace and beautiful views. I can't recommend this hotel enough., The staff were wonderful and location perfect. It was about a $30 Uber ride into San Fransisco ( I had stayed there 5 nights) and if I went back, would head to The Gables Inn, so a peaceful relaxing stay. I didn't want to leave! Highly recommend!

Gable Inn August 2017

4.4 on August 22, 2017

Staff was great, but parking very limited on-site. Very expensive by normal standards but a decent deal for Sausalito. The evening wine and cheese reception and the morning breakfasts were very good considering the limited resources the staff had with which to work.

Fabulous Visit

5 on August 22, 2017

The Gables Inn was definitely a special place to stay in Sausalito. The wine and cheese was amazing each day and the breakfast although continental was quite wonderful. The room and the view was lovely. Would definitely return for another visit.

Gables Inn Anniversary Get-away

4.0 on August 15, 2017

Rooms were great, large, very clean, and well prepared. As usual, price was high (Sausalito is an overpriced market, and Gables Inn was in the mid-range - not too high but far from "budget" priced). Staff was very good. Limited parking is a drawback, but staff went out of their way to make sure we had a parking spot where our Chevy Suburban fit. Everything you'd want to see/go to in Sausalito is within easy walking distance of the Gables Inn. I'd gladly stay there again.

Sausalito Weekend

4.8 on August 03, 2017

My husband and I stayed at the Gables Inn for three nights in July. We arrived in the evening during the daily "wine and cheese" event, and we were warmly greeted by Michael with a nice glass of Chardonnay and another of Merlot. The patio doors to the inn were open, and the heavenly scents of the Sausalito garden flowers welcomed us as well. It was a perfect beginning to a very lovely stay! We stayed in the Cypress Room, which was very spacious and tastefully decorated . Although the room had no air conditioning and it was a warm summer day, the patio door was open and a pedestal fan was running when we arrived. It took no time at all for the rom to cool down after sunset. The inn is located right near the waterfront and amongst all of the great shops and boutiques. There is even a Starbucks at the corner! We found the inn to be meticulously clean and the staff very helpful. I would highly recommend the Gables Inn to any Sausalito visitor. I hope to stay there again the next time we visit!


4.2 on July 24, 2017

The Gables Inn-Sausalito was the perfect choice for our final night of our West Coast trip. The staff was very helpful during our short stay. We will be back when visiting the area.

Great place in town!

4.4 on July 13, 2017

Walking only a block off of Main Street and situated with easy drive to Muir Woods and Marin Headlands and great views of GG Bridge.. all within 20 minutes.. you can even catch a ferry to SF.. lots of tourists during the day, but quietens done after 6. B&B very quiet and great views of bay from Willow Room.. would recommend!

Super Getaway

4.8 on July 10, 2017

Tucked nicely above the main street with choice of crow's nest views or cozy private garden level rooms. Building is in superb condition with rooms richly appointed. This was a unique experience for us. We had the top floor and a magnificent view of the harbor. Well run and a place we wouldn't mind being even in Winter.

Great stay

4.6 on July 09, 2017

Had 4 nights at this venue. Great location for the town, reception team were very helpful and would certainly stay here again.

Great location, but could be improved so easily.

2.6 on July 07, 2017

We booked this room having never stayed in Sausalito. The location and view were perfect, and the room was very spacious. If they just made a few changes, it would have improved the stay immensely. I will just list: The bathroom fan was deafening, no water bottles (should have been at least two free), the wine tasting was only a red and white - that's a wine and cheese hour, not a tasting. The cheese and fruit selection was wonderful. If they would add a throw blanket in the room, and a better wine selection to purchase (since it is near wine country), people may purchase. There is no restaurant, but there are several very close by. The amenities make a stay wonderful. Adding these small changes would be a huge improvement.

Weekend Getaway

4.4 on July 07, 2017

The room was quiet and comfortable. The bay and city views from the deck were great. The wine & cheese offered in the afternoon was perfect.


4.2 on July 05, 2017

As a previous B&B Innkeeper, we seek excellent B&Bs when we travel. The Gables is is simply outstanding especially the Innkeepers Stefanie & Michael. Daily parking fee caused lower value rating.

Wonderful staff and setting

4.4 on July 02, 2017

We spent our 25th anniversary at the hotel. Breakfast and wine and cheese in the evening were wonderful. Very nice views from upper floors. Easy access to ferry and shops and dinning. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. My wife enjoyed the flowers and champagne from the romance package.

Highly Recommend

4.2 on June 19, 2017

Great value to stay in the heart of Sausalito. Cozy, yet not cloistered.

In the center of everything

This is a great place to stay. Good value for a room of high amenity,

Favorite place in Sausalito

4.2 on June 09, 2017

Great place to stay, always top notch!

What a Gem!

4.8 on May 12, 2017

The Gables is a gem in the heart of downtown Sausalito. The room was well appointed and charming. I loved the fireplace and the claw foot tub in the bathroom.

Great weekend stay

5 on April 22, 2017

My weekend time was limited but the hotel stay was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great. Breakfast was really good. And my favorite Sausalito store, Kloset, was right around the corner.


5 on April 22, 2017

This is one of our favorite romantic getaways in the world. Michael and his staff take excellent care of us. The high rating for "onsite dining" is only for the excellent morning breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese. Both are delightful spreads. Fabulous dining options for full meals are within walking distance around town.

Beautiful weekend

4.8 on April 19, 2017

We enjoyed this beautiful bed and breakfast over a long weekend in Sausalito. Our room was beautiful and so comfortable. We had a private porch with a beautiful view of The water. Breakfast and wine were amazing! We would definitely stay in this lovely place again.

Spring at The Gables

4.8 on April 19, 2017

We spent the first week of April at the Gables Sausalito and found the accommodations to be very comfortable and charming. The staff was friendly and most helpful. We will be back next year folks.

Lovely stay

Lovely stay- charming rooms, nice morning breakfast- good selection of food items. Friendly staff- and very helpful

Simply Outstanding

Such a perfect spot out of the city. The facility was perfect and being able to spend a few days in pack Sausalito was incredibly relaxing.

Great Place, Great Stay!

What a find, great location and such lovely service. Had an excellent stay with dinner at Poggio and music till midnight at the No Name Bar, all in walking distance. Hate to give such a good review would like to keep it to myself!

Historical & Quaint Inn

5 on March 16, 2017

This was our second stay at the Gable Inn and we will definitely be back again. We were in the Redwood room which is off the balcony from the main lobby, great breakfast, service, & friendly staff. BTW - they offer a repeat guest discount!

Great location at a lovely inn.

3.0 on March 13, 2017

Very nice B &B. Great location, comfortable bed. Just wish the breakfast was served earlier than 8am.

Smart Stay

3.4 on February 06, 2017

Nicely appointed rooms, with great access the shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast was OK with a limited choice of cereal, but great range of fresh fruit. Would stay again if in area

"Sausalito sojourn

4.2 on January 27, 2017

The room had a very nice gas fireplace that we enjoyed. The shower needed maintenance. The location is perfect for accessing the village. We walked down to have a great dinner at the Trident restaurant.


2.8 on January 14, 2017

Rooms are tired and need updating; could not find a place to sit and work on laptop. Carpet felt dated and dirty. Great location - needs updating....

Charming and gorgeous

3.2 on January 01, 2017

Room was small but clean and cozy, as there was a log fireplace along with a great room heater. Location is really great, as it is off Bridgeway, the main street in Sausalito, but also close enough to walk to your choice of restaurants and shops. Staff was professional and helpful and the included breakfast was simple but good. Would definitely stay again.

4.4 on January 01, 2017

nice safe comfortable lobby and location. Rooms large, and like the family feel.

Extremely disappointed after many previous stays

2.0 on January 01, 2017

A large spider was residing between the pillows and the bed spread upon entering the room. Trail of ants were devouring some thing in the snack tray and even when notifying the staff nothing was done to eliminate the ants during the rest of our stay. The excuse was it is an old building. The staff were not responsive or friendly as they used to be during our annual stays. Had to ask staff to light fire in lounge during wine cheese evening while it was raining and cold during December. Uncomfortable and awkward stay for what is paid. Location is always great but there are others we will stay in future unless things are like they used to be. Sincerely Disappointed ,David Adorjan

Love love love this Inn!

5 on December 31, 2016

Love love love this Inn! Everyone here was so very nice and the room was very clean and spacious. The next time that we are in San Francisco, this will be "go to" place to stay. The pastries, fruit and coffee was quite yummy and wine and cheese in the eve was such a nice touch. We stayed in one of the rooms with the bay view and we hope to stay in that one again on a couple of clear days so that we can enjoy the awesome balcony and views. The bonus to the Inn is the location. It is perfect for walking to local eateries, shops, capturing beautiful views of the islands and bridge while escaping the fray of the San Francisco traffic. :)

Great feel and quiet

4.4 on December 18, 2016

We really like staying here because it's an easy drive into the city and it is quiet. It is within walking distance of great eating and views of the bay.

Lovely little place and good customer service, but tired rooms.

3.4 on December 15, 2016

The rooms need some sprucing up, but the front desk people were super nice.


5 on November 16, 2016

From the room, the bed, the view, the location, & the service, to the light & tasty wine reception & breakfast.....everything was simply outstanding!!

Beautiful spacious room with a great view of Sausalito!

Second Time at the Inn

4.2 on October 08, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the Gables inn last fall and decided to stay here again in September. We love staying here. So convenient to SFO and driving north through Marin County. Russian River wineries are within a short drive, too. The Inn is welcoming and always so pleasant! Will definitely come back!

Return trip to the Gables Inn!!

5 on September 27, 2016

My husband and I returned to the inn last week. The B n B is just a short walk down the hill. Sausalito is one of our favorite towns and if we come here, we stay at the Gables Inn!

Recent stay

4.2 on September 26, 2016

We recently stayed at the Gables Inn Sausilto and were very happy with our stay. The staff was warm and friendly, we enjoyed breakfast and happy hour. I only gave the cleanliness a 3 because our rugs were very stained, other than that the place was spotless!

Great location, great service

3.4 on September 22, 2016

The Gables Inn is located in a great location one block from the Sausalito waterfront, ferry, and shopping district. The employees were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and the evening wine and cheese reception was also very good. Our room (handicapped accessible) was average. No air conditioning but a large floor fan was available in the room.

Lovely Stay in Sept 2016

4.0 on September 15, 2016

The hotel is a lovely quaint building in the centre of town. The staff are very helpful. We stayed for only 1 night, and on arriving we were offered cheese and wine. The breakfast was excellent, with fresh bread and fruit. A great stay. We really enjoyed it.

Kentucky comes to Sausalito

3.6 on September 11, 2016

We stayed in the Cypress room with a shared patio. We loved having the patio as all of our family who stayed at the Gables in other rooms would congregate there each morning for breakfast and to make plans for the day. We had a great view of the water and loved watching the early morning rowers. The beautiful weather coupled with the quiet surroundings, even though we were right next door to several stores, made for a memorable trip. Thank you to the Gables for making our first trip to Sausalito a place to return.

Labor Day Weekend

4.4 on September 10, 2016

We had a great time and everything was really nice. It was a fantastic experience and can not wait to return.

Lovely B&B

5 on September 03, 2016

Lovely inn in the heart of Sausalito. Francesco at the front desk was very cheery and helpful! Highly recommend this little gem.

The Gables Inn is FANTASTIC!!!!

4.8 on August 30, 2016

A quick stop on our way to bodega, never been to any place like this, the staff, super friendly, the room with the crazy view of the sfo skyline, the location, etc etc.... this place will put you in a good mood, and relaxes you like any other norcal destination.

Most Excellent!!!!!

5 on August 29, 2016

We were in the Bay Room; featuring a huge Bay window that opens on each side to control air flow and street sounds. Veiw is over buildings down the hill, and sees boats, part of marina and much of the Bay and City to the Bay Bridge. Staff is excellent; wine social was wonderful. We made new friends and completed our agenda for the week based on their advice! One caveat; stairs to the 3rd floor are somewhat steep, but we are in our late 50's and did fine! Walking distance to everything!

Lovely First Floor Room

3.8 on August 28, 2016

We had a lovely stay at the Gables in our first floor room with a shared patio. The historic property makes a lovely inn and the staff made our stay comfortable. The location in Sausalito was a nice place to explore from. It gave us the chance to slow down from the busy pace in San Francisco. The wine and cheese in the evening was a nice touch and breakfast was fresh and plentiful without the prepackaged foods you see in many hotels. The Gables was an elegant, understated travel experience after 3 weeks on the road.

Great place!

39th anniversary in Sausalito

3.0 on August 06, 2016

We had a large room with a view of the bay bridge and SF buildings. The service was good, including the late afternoon wine/cheese and continental breakfast. Only issues: The bathroom counter grout needs attention as does the carpet stain next to the bed. We really enjoyed being a one minute walk from downtown and would definitely stay there again.

I love this place!!

5 on August 04, 2016

My daughter and I came through Sausalito on a college road trip and we stayed one night at the Gables Inn. It was our second time(we came once with the whole family). I just love how clean the rooms are and how each room is different. They thought of everything to make the rooms comfortable and to make our stay perfect. I just wish we had more time there! We will definitely be back!!

Awesome experience

4.8 on July 29, 2016

What a surprise. Never stayed in Sausalito before. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was terrific. The only bothersome thing is charging $20 to park in their lit. Will return again.

Always perfect!

5 on July 24, 2016

My daughter and I stayed one night while touring colleges in California. What a treat! The rooms are always so clean and comfortable. The location is great~ so close to town, yet tucked away enough for a quiet night's sleep. Everyone is always so nice and we always meet such great people traveling through. We look forward to our next stay!

Anniversary Stay

It was so sweet to come into the room to see a bottle of champayne. The service was so great! Breakfast was the only drawback, it was not anything special. What a great place, we will definitely be back.

Hidden Gem

4.0 on July 21, 2016

Found this through TripAdvisor and it was perfect for my quick trip. This is an excellent location tucked away from the main road but still close to all Sausalito has to offer. Parking is first come, first serve which can be a little tricky but I got the last spot when I pulled in for the evening. The rooms were charming, comfortable and spacious and the service, even at 9:30pm, was above par. Overall, I look forward to booking my next visit here.

A perfect birthday getaway

5 on July 20, 2016

It is a charming inn. The room/view was magnificent. The breakfast was full of choices and flavor. I would certainly return.

Beating the heat

Beautiful and cozy place!

4.8 on March 28, 2016

We stayed here one night over spring break on a road trip up California's coast. It was a perfect quiet refuge to spend the night and then take the ferry into the city for the day. The ferry ride itself was a highlight of our vacation! Highly recommend Sausalito as a place to stay when visiting San Fran, and this gem is a perfect spot to rest and recuperate.

Great stay

3.8 on March 25, 2016

Loved this this bed and breakfast. The room was spacious and comfortable. Had a nice homelike quality. I loved having the fireplace in the room which made it very cozy on the cool day and evening that we stayed there. It was just steps from the main strip and the bay. There was a nice variety of healthy options at breakfast. Plenty of fruit, yogurt, pastries, cereal/cereal bars, milk and juice. The evening wine and cheese was excellent as well.

Charming, great location

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Gables Inn. Although it was cold and stormy outside our room was warm and cozy. The fireplace added to the ambiance as well as making the room very comfortable. The staff was outstanding, friendly and knowledgeable. We also appreciated thant there were a number of good restaurants close by.

Wonderful place for a getaway!!

Two nights at the Gables

3.2 on January 14, 2016

The rooms were good, but for the price, I expected them to be. That was why I only rated them as meeting my expectations. We would have preferred a more substantial breakfast. Parking was a bit unusual. They charge $20 per night to park at their inn, but they don't have enough spaces for all their guests. I wound up parking on the street the first night and having to put money in the meter first thing in the morning to avoid a ticket. They refunded the parking fee, but I would have felt better about it if they had simply charged enough for the room to cover the parking.The service by the staff however was outstanding!

The Gables Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The building is beautiful, and the rooms are very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is great for activities in downtown Sausalito. Not far from San Francisco either, just a short drive or ferry ride over.

Great place!

Magnolia Room

4.2 on September 09, 2015

We stayed in the Magnolia Room and enjoyed an exceptional view of the bay. The french doors were open every night to take in the view of Alcatraz, the bridge and the city. The location was extremely walkable to downtown to include shopping and restaurants. Reception was great; friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was sufficient to get us to lunch. We did not partake in the wine and cheese at night but it was well attended. I would recommend this location, room and Inn to my friends.

Wonderful find and stay!

4.4 on September 03, 2015

Wine and cheese bar in the evening and a very fantastic breakfast buffet in the morning. The room was fantastic and very private. The bathtub jets were amazing to have, and to have the smell of the ocean come in through the windows was a wonderful way to relax in the evening and wake up. The town is very nice, and it would be well worth a day to just stay in the town and explore.

great, and different

4.6 on August 23, 2015

Great and unique place. Not the chain cookie cutter hotel. Convenient to walk to restaurants and shopping. Parking is tight, but adequate which is at a premium in Sausalito. Definitely would stay there again. ----New England Traveller

Perfect location and lovely concierge

5 on August 21, 2015

We loved our stay here. It was right in the heart of Sausalito just steps away from the Main Street. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed seriously comfortable. The wine and cheese reception was a great way to relax and chat to others particularly the lovely concierge who gave us a great recommendation for dinner. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Fun and Quaint

5 on August 20, 2015

We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The room was quiet, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The location is perfect! A quick walk to Sausalito's night life (restaurants, bars, etc). They provided a lovely breakfast in the morning and a nice wine and cheese hour in the evening. My only "complaint" is having to pay an additional $20/night for parking, but you knew that up front.

Great stay in Sausalito!

5 on August 10, 2015

We stayed to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with the family! Love the town, and the hotel was so cute. Enjoyed our patio with the wine and cheese. Super clean, friendly, easy walk to town - I will definitely stay again and would recommend!

SFO Trip

5 on May 30, 2015

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

This is a beautiful inn in a great location.

lovely place to stay!

4.4 on May 11, 2015

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

4.0 on May 09, 2015

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!

5 on May 05, 2015

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!

4.2 on March 29, 2015

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.

Outstanding - great place to stay!

4.6 on November 02, 2014

We totally enjoyed our two night stay at the Gables and only wish we had planned to stay there longer on this trip! Great location, great rooms and probably the best "common" areas of any B&B we've stayed in. The fine point on an outstanding stay was Missy, the host on duty during our stay. The Innkeeper could not ask for a better representative - she treated every guest as if they were personal friend staying in her own inn. She made a perfect Inn even better!

Great Stay!

5 on November 01, 2014

Everything was exceptional, Jennifer our contact at the Inn was very helpful and treated us with the utmost professionalism. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at this very classy B & B.

Wifi was very weak

4.6 on October 27, 2014

Everything was great but the wifi was absolutely terrible. The first night it seemed to conk out at 11 pm. The last morning I tried multiple places in the building with the same bad luck. I was there for work, not tourism, so if you do not cater to business class then you should say that. If you do, then your wifi needs a serious upgrade.

Schoene Tage in San Francisco

4.2 on October 20, 2014

Wir verbrachten 3 Naechte im Gables Inn. Die Zimmer waren grosszuegig und schoen eingerichtet. Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr guenstig, man erreicht auf kurzem Weg die Faehren und den Bus nach San Francisco. Das Fruehstueck fanden wir sehr gut, eines der besten auf unserer 3 wöchigen Reise.

One day in Sausalito

4.2 on October 19, 2014

I would have given this room experience a 5 star as well, but it was just too warm while we were there. We were provided a room fan, but a ceiling fan would have worked miracles, with the tall ceilings.. Lovely place though and great location.

Nice Stay In the Willow Room

3.8 on October 11, 2014

We did a short trip to Sausalito and stayed in the Willow Room at The Gables Inn. The room was very roomy and charming. We could see the San Francisco skyline from our balcony. Not a totally unobstructed view but, it was quiet and peaceful. The bed was comfortable and they offer free wifi and direct TV with multiple HBO channels. Despite some stains on the carpet and the chaise lounge, the room felt clean. The shower handle in the tub really needs to be replaced. It took some effort to put it in shower mode. The sink area is a little bit on the small size and we had to use a piece of plastic to keep the drain plug up. However, none of these things kept us from enjoying our stay. The room included a Keurig coffee machine with a selection of coffees and teas along with a "honor" bar with bottles of wine and snacks. There is no fridge but, there is an ice machine downstairs. The lobby offers coffee, tea, and fruit at all times. The complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon was very nice while the continental breakfast was more than satisfying. The parking lot is small but, as long you don't bring your SUV, you'll be fine. Parking is $20 a night but, that is low compared to anyplace you stay in SF. The staff at the Inn were very friendly and helpful, particularly if you need advice on places to visit. We are fine just walking around Sausalito which is about a 30 second walk to the main drag. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay.

Relaxing and Scenic Getaway

4.4 on September 25, 2014

We stayed in Room 201 and it was beautiful! Aside from being a little stuffy, the room was great. Sissy was very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was delicious and the wine & cheese hour was quite the spread. It was a nice time to mingle with other guests and trade stories. For us the best part about the Inn was its proximity to downtown! I would recommend paying the little extra for a room with an ocean view.

Outstanding view

4.0 on September 16, 2014

Celebrated a birthday at The Gables Inn so reserved one of the larger suites. Absolutely beautiful view of San Francisco Bay. We watched the fog roll in and the moon rise over Angel Island. The inn is right in the heart of Sausalito so we could easily walk to restaurants and shopping, or just strolling along the waterfront. Only issue was all the stairs leading up to the top floor, with no elevator. Not a problem for us as we travel light, and the desk clerk offered to help. But could be a problem for people who travel with a lot of luggage - another reason to pack light! I wouldn't have missed the view for anything. Parking lot is tight, but at least they have one, but you do pay extra. Evening wine and cheese reception in lobby was very nice.

Relaxation in Sausalito

4.0 on August 29, 2014

The Gables is located in downtown Sausalito close to the bay, restaurants and shops. It is a lovely Inn with lots of flowers climbing and winding around the various levels of the establishment. For being in the heart of town it was surprisingly quiet and peaceful. The breakfast offered everything I like and the fresh fruit was varied and delicious! I enjoyed walking around Sausalito and discovered an outdoor concert by the bay that was so enjoyable. My purpose for the visit was a high school reunion. I didn't have time to book a salon appointment prior to my visit. Staff from the Gables were able to get an appointment, on very short notice, for a haircut, mani & pedi for me. The salon staff were so attentive and I left feeling pampered and relaxed for my reunion. The only drawback on this stay was outside my room is a water feature at a merchant and the noise from the water feature was sometimes relaxing, but also woke me at night. I'm sure many people wouldn't notice it at all, but it did bother me some of the time. The downstairs rooms do not have views and next time I'd like to stay in a view room. Unfortunately they were already reserved when I made my reservation. I had a lovely stay at The Gables!

Great view!

Loved having a balcony with a view! Very quiet yet so close to all the shops and restaurants, etc. We had a great time!

Great B&B Stay

4.8 on August 15, 2014

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights at the Gables. Wonderful B&B. Comfortable, large, clean room with a huge bathroom. Quiet. Nightly wine and cheese and breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, rolls, etc.. Friendly, informative, efficient staff. Conveniently located for all the attractions and restaurants in Sausalito. Parking is a little tight and tricky, but workable. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great Stay!!!

4.2 on August 14, 2014

My wife and I married a few days before our stay. Upon arrival, we were shown to our room and presented with a bottle of champagne on ice! The location was fantastic. We were able to walk to restaurants, parks, and a ferry that would take us to San Francisco. Views of the city and bay were good, but a little obstructed by the buildings in the vicinity. Bed - great...clean sheets comfortable mattress and pillows. Bathroom - nice and big, however, the fixtures on the tub/shower need a little TLC, I am nit picking of course. Overall, this was a great stay for a pretty good price. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful Getaway

4.0 on August 12, 2014

The Gables Inn is unique in it's location and charm. A short walk from the main road in Sausalito, it offers a wonderful respite from the weekend crowds. It will be my first choice upon returning to Sausalito. The staff is warm and welcoming... and the room was cozy and quiet. I am already looking forward to my next visit.

We loved this place

4.6 on August 06, 2014

Just like home, only much nicer. The Willow Room has a balcony with a partial view of San Francisco. We spent two nights which was not enough. The complimentary afternoon wine/cheese/fruit was elaborate, very good quality cheeses. The breakfast selection was perfect - not some extensive buffet, just enough good quality items. The location is ideal - a half-block up the hill from Bridgeway (but not on Bridgeway). Can't wait to return and stay longer.

Nice, Homey, & Quiet w/ Great Breakfast

4.8 on July 25, 2014

Everybody who worked the front desk was extremely helpful - pointed us in the right direction for whatever bizarre requests we had (cigar shop, organic grocery store, cheap sourdough sandwiches, etc.). I would recommend this B&B to anyone. And the complimentary breakfast was FANTASTIC - very generous amount & variety every day. Plus there is a "wine & cheese" happy hour. We had a very high quality of life during our stay that weekend!

July visit

We were pleasantly surprised with the Inn. The lower priced room fit into our budget best so we were in the Maple Room. The room was lovely. The entire inn is beautifully decorated. So warm. Sissy was on the desk the nights we stayed. She was so friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was outstanding with a beautiful presentation of fruits, cereals, pastrys, hard boiled eggs and more. We especially enjoyed the wine and cheese in the evening. We liked the Gables Inn so much that we booked it for our next visit to Sausalito, canceling a reservation we had made at another hotel.

Simply Amazing!!

Though it was only an over nighter, the stay was wonderful. I traveled with my wife and two daughters. Our room was ready when we arrived and we enjoyed some evening wine, cheese, and treats prior to visiting Sausalito. Breakfast was the best!! Our service was first class all the way. We'd return in a heart beat!!

Best B&B in CA!!!

The entire stay was beyond great! The rooms were superb& breakfast each day was healthy and fresh! The staff was so friendly and most helpful! We will be booking again in 2015!

Short Stay: worth a second trip

4.0 on June 30, 2014

We stayed only one night -- 12 hours, actually, due to late check-in -- but would come again. Lilac Room was very comfortable, spacious, clean, and had an East-facing balcony with a partial view of the Bay; perfect for breakfast in the morning sun. "Continental breakast" was much better than the usual; excellent fresh fruit, juices and a nice selection of fresh pastries and muffins. Short walk to the waterfront and main street in Sausalito. Good base for heading north to wine country, along the coast or to Muir Woods.

Excellent experience!

We stayed in the Bay View room and were not disappointed. The building is old, but the proprietors have done a great job making the place a very comfortable facility.

easy place to stay in Sausalito

Nice place to stay. Very close to everything in Sausalito. We stayed in the room with the street view - I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that wants to sleep in. Lots of street noise. The window basically backs up to the sidewalk and you can hear people talking as they walk outside your room. The clawfoot tub was cute but seems dangerous. Very difficult to shower in. Overall a pleasant place with great customer service.

Fantastic hotel and real friendly people, they could not have been more helpful and friendly. Plenty of info and help for anything you wish to do. Lovely ambience and superb breakfast and wine and cheese. Very good location to lovely Sausalito and ferry to San. Fran. Would highly recommend.

I absolutely loved staying here. The wine & cheese in the evening was a great touch, and the continental breakfast was delicious. The room we stayed in was very charming and the staff were incredibly friendly. I did not want to leave! I would definitely like to come back.

Like staying with friends.

Our hosts were genuinely caring and helpful. The continental breakfast was as good as we would serve ourselves at home. The wine and cheese served before we would go out for dinner was just the finest of Bay Area hospitality and very much appreciated.

Cypress Room at Gables Inn

4.6 on May 23, 2014

Our 2 nights here were WONDERFUL! Our room and patio were lovely. The staff was very, very cheerful and helpful. Breakfasts were amazing. My only "complaint" is that I wish the afternoon wine & cheese started earlier, i.e. 4:30pm since we like to eat dinner early, around 5:30-6:30pm. I gave the room a 4 instead of 5, only because the smell of candles' scent that were burning in the lobby wafted into our room and at night it was a bit too strong. But we hope to be back and will recommend this inn to others.

Very Pleasant

Stayed in the Bay Room which offers a stunning view of the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz and the SF skyline. You cannot see the GG Bridge from here and there are some power lines in the sight-lines that can be a minor distraction, but having your own private view is quite enjoyable. There is no A/C but this should not present an issue on most days, but if your traveling here when the forecast is warm you may want to think about somewhere else. Room made it to 75 degrees--open the windows and turn on supplied fans in the evening and it should cool off quickly. No elevators, so you should also be prepared to walk up two flight of stairs. In walking distance to most every major attraction in Salusalito. Room was very clean and staff was friendly. The wine tasting in the early evening was very nice and the continental breakfast was as expected with plenty of fresh fruit, cereals, bread & bagels, and other products--not a hot breakfast though so do not expect that. Bed was very comfortable and room is spacious. Overall our stay was very enjoyable, you are paying for the view (and location) and we enjoyed the view very much both in the morning with breakfast and the evening watching the city light up. Perhaps a bit of a high price for what you get but still quite pleased.

Gorgeous room, spectacular view, attentive & incredibly helpful staff!

Booked this room as a last minute getaway. I called the office a couple of times with questions prior to booking; the staff were genuinely pleasant and really helpful. The room was very clean, the whole building smelled wonderful! Not overwhelming, and not a spray can of scent. We are sensitive to perfumes and sprays and incense, but this was a perfect balance of clean air, fresh flowers, and maybe a nice scented candle here and there. Not overwhelming at all. We arrived for checkin just after their wine and cheese "happy hour" ended, but were still very graciously invited to come downstairs for wine and cheese. The front office staff were not only pleasant but incredibly accommodating, and saw to it that every one of our needs were met. They exceeded our expectations by a mile. Next time we will book for the whole weekend instead of just one night!

Luxury in Sausalito

our room had a beautiful view and was very very comfortable and the wine and cheese offered was wonderful and relaxing and we enjoyed our stay at The Gables Inn and highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Sausalito!!

truly charming

4.6 on April 22, 2014

We've stayed here several times and love it every time. The front desk staff is helpful, personable, and knowledgeable and our all time favorite is Sissy! The romantic rooms, the views, the cheese/wine in the evening, all of it is just right. A short stroll to restaurants, shops, and of course the Bay. Our room had a view of Alcatraz, San Francisco, and the Bay bridge. Fabulous! We love it.

My concierge was very welcoming! I really appreciated the spacious room and beautiful view of the bay! The parking was very tight though, I guess that can't be helped, but I found it difficult to go in-and-out of the tiny lot.

Room was large and had many nice features. Shower was difficult to use. Room needed new carpet

nice stay at gables inn

we had a nice second stay there, though i think they should just add the parking charge on the room rate, it is a little deceiving.

Wonderful stay

We rolled in tired and cold. We were immediatly charmed by the location and building and taken care of by the staff. Our room was beautiful, with a stunning view of San Francisco and Angel Island, what a sunrise! We would reccommend the Gables Inn to any one.

Great Stay

Super value for the money! Lovely atmosphere. Clean as a whistle.

A Gem!

This is a wonderful Inn and a perfect location we will come back again! The free wine and cheese in the evening should not be missed it was fantastic and the breakfast was also nice. Free wifi and parking is only $20, they do not nickle and dime you at all. Bear claw tubs a bit of a shower challenge, we could only laugh!

We loved it here!

4.4 on June 05, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved the inn and the location. It is very close to the main street in Sausalito but is very quiet. The room we had was the Redwood and it was spacious and the bathroom layout was great. I love when the sink is outside of the toilet/bathtub room, but it was still in a separate room from the bedroom. The morning breakfast, while "continental" was extensive with plenty of food to choose from including lots of fresh fruit. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'm so glad we stayed here in Sausalito rather than the hectic city of San Francisco. It was peaceful and so pleasant. We highly recommend staying here!

excellent in every respect

great bay area location

Beautiful, clean, well appointed room in great location. Near the fun shops in Sausalito and just a few steps away from the ferry to San Francisco. Breakfast includes many choices and the evening wine and cheese is delightful. We will definitely return.

One night stay

My wife and I recently celebrated our 30th Anniversary while staying at The Gables Inn. We wanted it to be a special time where we could enjoy the beauty of the Bay area (we live in NC) without being swallowed up by the noisiness of a big city. Sausalito ended up being just what the doctor ordered, and The Gables Inn was absolutely perfect in almost every way possible (it was our first stay there). #1, the service was superb, from the caring and conscientious owners (who were involved on a daily basis), to each of the staff responsible for food service, room service, front desk, or the concierge function. We were made to feel like royalty with every interaction. #2, the value of what we paid for and what we received in terms of comfort, ambiance, convenience and enjoyment was easily a 5 star experience - far beyond our expectations. The wine and cheese hour each night was especially wonderful - a chance to have casual yet meaningful conversation with staff and guests. #3, the location of the Inn was ideal, a 45 second walk down to the quaint shops of Sausalito, which included numerous quality restaurants overlooking the Bay Bridge/SF skyline/Golden Gate Bridge, and a 3 minute walk to the dock to catch the ferry ride over to San Francisco (which we had seen on the internet as being voted the 2nd most beautiful ferry ride in the world, second only to one in Hong Kong). Plus it is such easy access to the wine country. #4, our room was spacious (the Redwood), the fireplace in the room (and in the lobby) was a welcome warmth in the mornings and evenings, and the balcony leading from the lobby to our room was lined with flowering bushes and potted plants in bloom (in January!). It was romantic and inspiring. So THANK YOU, DANIEL AND MICHELLE and STAFF, for helping make our 30th Anniversary getaway so unforgettably memorable!!

A wonderful getaway in Sausalito

What a lovely getaway. I was visiting several family members in the bay area and just needed some time to myself. The inn is beautiful and the staff very helpful. I sat at the patio and had wine and cheese in the evening and breakfast in the morning overlooking the bay. I highly recommend.

Sausalito travel

very nice and clean place; liked the place; parking fee of $15 is unusual for a Bed and Breakfast and is not stated while booking; get a room on 1st level or at least not beneath the breakfast area, otherwise you might awake early; otherwise great place to stay; would come again

The very best

"The room with a view"-outstanding, spacious, comfortable while not pretentious. Best value of all Inns/B&B in the area.

View of the bay from the room

Went to sleep looking at the bay - what a view! The beds were outstanding - firm and comfortable! The bathtub was relaxing and calming. Only thing I truly disliked was climbing all those stairs - have bad knees. Would recommend a small refrigerator in the room and an ice machine on the second level. Thank you for such a delicious wine and cheese evening and breakfast!

Best place to stay in Sausalito!

My 27-year-old daughter and I spent a night at The Gables Inn and loved everything about it. The hospitality is warm and friendly, the rooms are beautifully appointed, excellent views of San Francisco can be seen from rooms in the inn, the amenities are impressive, and the location is perfect. It is the only inn in Sausalito that offers on-site parking at no additonal cost. I recommend The Gables Inn Sausalito for the most discerning traveler.
