Having lived in the UK for 10+ years the Gilbert Inn lived up to our expectations for a classical / high-end Bed & Breakfast. The Victorian building and lovely gardens were authentically quaint and full of old-world charm. We also particularly enjoyed the delicious breakfast and garden arbor seating area with cozy fire-pit. Would definitely stay there again! Bob &... More

We stayed here for our Anniversary Weekend and had a great time. Close to the beach and shops. Parking is good and the room was great. Even has a nice fire pit in the front to relax around. No complaints and we plan to stay here again in the future.

Booked Gilbert Inn a little last minute after an AirBnB reservation fell through. Glad we did because the Gilbert Inn was a lovely place for my husband and I to stay during our first visit to the Oregon Coast! The Inn itself is only a few short blocks away from the main street of restaurants, shops, etc. and a short... More

The Inn itself is restored nicely and the history is interesting. The bed was comfortable, and the room large. There was a heat wave when we were there, and there is no air conditioning, so it was warm in the room. The staff was nice enough, although our experience with B&Bs is that the hosts are around a lot more,... More

The Gilbert Inn is a gem of an oasis in a sea of touristy choices. I always arrive stressed from my job and return home relaxed and renewed. Ironically, I hesitate to write a review because I feel like I am revealing one of the best-kept getaway secrets in the Portland region. The staff is the friendliest in town, and... More

Charming, comfortable and quiet! Seaside can be a bit overwhelming with tourist traps. The Gilbert Inn is an oasis of taste and comfort. But it is also centrally located and just a block from the beach.

This isn't a B&B in the traditional sense of sharing a living room with a family, it's a combination historic home and hotel. I loved the chocolate chip cookies baked fresh every day. It's very comfortable and close to the beach and activities. Staff was always on hand and helpful. We certainly would stay there again.

I love these little treasures where time stands still. The story of the Gilbert in is part of it's charm and the history of Seaside, along with the awesome contribution of the oceanfront promenade. 11 rooms, each with it's own private bath. Comfortably appointed with many period furniture pieces to complete the victorian setting. Our room had the unfortunate backyard... More

Nice little Inn in Seaside. Staff was pleasant and the rooms were quiet. The rooms have been decorated with furniture of the period - clean and well maintained. We stayed on the first floor which was very convenient. Only a block from the beach makes it very convenient for beach lovers. Breakfast is served but limited. Close to the main... More

The staff were all very welcoming and provided helpful information. The room was quiet, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful with nice gardens and the enclosed back porch was a very pleasant place to read.
