The beach and nice restaurants are all a very short walk away. Nice grounds and a gas outdoor fire pit where you can read or socialize during the evening. This is more of an Inn than a Bed & Breakfast. Breakfast is buffet style with a quiche and rolls.

The Gilbert Inn is located 1 block from the Prom and the beach. It is as old as it looks in the picture but the rooms are updated with normal amenities yet still retain the charm of the inn. Be advised that there are stairs, so if you may want to consider how you pack if you can't carry your... More

Great alternative to a hotel. Although this B&B is surrounded by many other accommodation types it is truly a lovely "Victorian" home and feels like it belongs at Seaside. Adjacent to many good restaurants. The home has history and a small town charm. Making the reservation was easy and true to our expectations. Complimentary hot tea in the evenings was... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gilbert Inn for two nights in early September. Based on our past experiences staying in other B&Bs across the country I was a little disappointment in a couple of areas. First the good stuff. The Gilbert Inn is approximately one block from the beach so location is a plus if you want quick... More

It was an amazing experience for a time away to relax and enjoy the Oregon Coast. The Gilbert Inn takes you back in time to a relaxing home in the late 1800's. Beautiful wood on the walls and ceiling are original. Our cozy bedroom had a 4 poster bed, period furniture and drapes. The ladies at the desk were very... More

Our stay was midweek during August. Just a block off of the boardwalk. Nicely furnished rooms and friendly staff. Loved the old charm furnishings and history of the Inn. We were assigned the Turret room which has very large windows that made the room bright. You can not see the ocean but like I said it is just a short... More

This inn is lovely, has nice clean rooms, easy parking, and a sunny breakfast room. It is just a block from the water and all the restaurants and amenities of the unpretentious, funky town of Seaside which reminded me of a 1950's resort town. The property is beautiful although it is overshadowed by a large building.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The romantic Gilbert Inn Bed & Breakfast is a couples retreat nestled steps from the oceanfront and downtown activities. Offering eleven cozy guest rooms with private baths each decorated with unique period furnishings that provide the perfect blend of comfort and elegance. Couples can relax and cuddle up around the outdoor fire pit. Escape each morning to the Sun-room filled with natural light as you enjoy our homemade breakfast. To preserve a place for couples to retreat, guests must be 18 years or older to stay. Come experience a Bed & Breakfast like no other offered on the Oregon Coast.
