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.

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

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.
