There is a lot to love about the Gables Inn in Sausalito. The location is fantastic for exploring downtown Sausalito on foot with easy access to the ferry, great dining, and a nice array of shops and galleries. The wine and cheese reception in the lobby was lovely and included a decent selection of olives, cheeses, and crackers. Likewise, the continental breakfast offered a nice variety of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, danish, bagels and toast, and hard boiled eggs.
We stayed in the Laurel Room (Room 103) which while small was comfortable and nicely appointed with a large flatscreen TV with Direct TV, a jetted tub with rain shower, Aveda bath products, and a Keurig coffee maker accompanied by a nice assortment of coffees and tea. While the room lacked a refrigerator, it came supplied with a variety of snacks and a couple of bottles of wine (at extra charge).
A few negatives should be mentioned - the window shades could not be raised, When I peeked behind them, I was shocked to see that the window sills were filthy. In fact, one of window sills was so damaged, the window did not close completely. The woman at the front desk explained that this room was in the "newer wing" so we were surprised at the condition of the windows/sills.
We had a bit of trouble getting the TV to work initially as there were two remotes (one for the TV and one for Direct TV) and no instructions in the room. I called the front desk for assistance and was told someone would be right down. The woman from the front desk arrived within a few seconds and proceeded to scold us for "touching" one of the remotes. (As it turned out, the prior guest had switched the input on the TV.) It really wasn't' a big deal, but I didn't appreciate being scolded for a situation we did not create.
All in all, we had a lovely stay in Sausalito. I would recommend the Gables with the caveat that the Laurel Room should be avoided until the broken window frame/sill is repaired and cleaned.
