Seldom have we had such a wonderful experience that far exceeded our expectations. The charm of the Gables Inn was apparent the minute we stepped in the front door and saw the fireplace, comfy furniture, and overall ambience of the area where wine and cheese can be enjoyed each evening. The manager, Michael, could not have been more gracious. Our spacious room upstairs had a view of SF, Angel Island and Tiburon. The room had a warm and comfortable feeling. A variety of excellent cheeses, crackers and wine were presented in an attractive buffet later that day. Michael explained each cheese, which all turned out to be delicious. The fireplace and pleasant conversations with other guests rounded out the evening. The breakfast buffet in the morning was also attractively laid out with a wonderful variety of fruits, pastries, cereals, etc. that were far better than one usually expects. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to the Bay Area. The Gables Inn is a winner by any measure.

Room Tip: Room 301 was ours. The other two up there also looked good.

We've been to Sausalito a million times but never spent the night. After spending waaay too much time on TripAdvisor checking place after place for Sausalito decided that the Gables Inn sounded good. We wanted to be downtown so we could park and not drive for a few days. Lots of other nice places in the same town had enough bad reviews here and there that we passed on all of them and tried this one. Glad we did. We had just spent three days in Big Sur at some awesome rustic cabins (Ripplewood Resort) and my wife wanted to be pampered.

This place rocks. Sissy, the night person went out of her way to make us feel at home. The nightly wine and cheese was great. The morning breakfast was one of the best we've ever had at an Inn. We stayed in the Lilac Room which was very nice, has a big tub, and a big deck with a view of the city. We left the doors open at night to get the view and the cool breeze.

In the mornings (we're morning people) my wife would get up, go downstairs, and walk down the street for 30 seconds (literally) to the Starbucks and bring lattes back to the room. Once we were "Up" we'd go down for breakfast and then start exploring the area.

The only negative thing to me was that there was a baby/small child in the room next to us which bothered us a bit. Did not expect a young child at a really upscale Inn. We came here to get away from the noise and were not able quite to. And that's not really an issue of the Inn other than I didn't expect kids here. At least not really small ones that cried.

Would definitely stay here again and would also recommend the Lilac Room as having a great deck, lots of room, and all the amenities. We took the ferry several times from Sausalito -> Tiburon -> San Fran and back. Lots of fun and a cheap way to get out on the water. Also can recommend Sushi Ran for dinner if you can find it. Sissy will help you.

My husband and I have stayed at The Gables Inn several times. It is a very lovely, old property, recently renovated. The Inn is quaint, tasteful, and the staff are great. The Inn was decorated for the holidays, with a real tree, beautifully decorated. The lobby has a roaring fireplace in the evenings. Missy, on the night shift, went above and beyond to enhance our experience. The nightly wine/cheese is high quality and delicious. The breakfasts provide a nice variety of food for healthy and yummy choices: hard boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels, good fruit, english muffins, toast, cereal, juices, etc. The Inn is just steps away from Starbucks, downtown shopping, restaurants, and best of all, the Bay! The walk along the Bay is very nice. We took the ferry to San Francisco (a little expensive but worth the experience and not having the hassle of parking in SF), walked to Union Square and did a little Christmas shopping. There is a $15 parking fee, per night, at the Inn. On this trip we took our daughter so we stayed in a room that could accommodate 3 adults. On previous trips we had rooms with a view of the Bay, which was really nice.

I arrived at the Gables at 9pm after a long travel day from NYC and meetings. The wine/cheese tasting event had long ended yet the receptionist offered to hand deliver a glass of wine and a plate of cheese/crackers to my room which was so nice and welcome. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful, relaxing, and I felt as if I stayed in a spa all night. The people who were guests combined with the desk staff were exceptional. Parking was free and outside the Inn door. The shops and restaurants are steps away. Not much more to ask for- I will definitely be back. Wonderful and pleasant.
