“Ahhhhh . . . Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I live in Northern California and have been to Sausalito many times, but have missed The Gables Inn. What a find! The room was very nice. Large, clean, high ceilings, Restoration Hardware towels, and a pretty patio with a water view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Both the happy hour refreshments and the breakfast were wonderful. It is located just a block off Bridgeway where all the shops and restaurants are located and the walk along the waterfront is amazing. I would definitely return to The Gables Inn.

We travelled from Australia and stayed between 13th and 22nd June in the Buckeye Room. It was a big room with great amenities with fantastic breakfasts every morning and wine and cheese every evening. What more could we ask for. Great weather close to the ferry and shopping. The staff were wonderful. We have have told everyone about The Gables and would definitely recommend it. After staying at Fishermans Wharf 3 years ago this hotel wins hands down Trish Australia

Quaint charming inn with great staff. Wonderful generous breakfast with many selections. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Wine and cheese reception in evening was nicely done. Very quiet at night. However, we were disappointed that our room was visibly dirty and very hot. The duvet cover was stained, bathroom white wooden shade was very worn and dirty, light switches and walls in bathroom were dirty, carpet was stained. The room featured beautiful white painted doors and woodwork but all were dirty. Also, the a/c in the room (we stayed in the Redwood Room) didn't work. We were told to put a fan in the window and the room would cool nicely at night. Unfortunately, the room never cooled below 76 degrees, even though it was chilly and breezy outside. If the a/c was functional and the room was given a much needed thorough cleaning, I would rate our stay as a very pleasant experience.

what a pleasant surprise The Gables Inn Sausalito was. The last time we stayed in the bay area we stayed at a very nice hotel near Fisherman's wharf, nice but you were kind of "just another guest" but not the case at The Gables Inn, the staff were all very friendly and helpful in every way and treat you as a valued visitor. The evening wine and snacks were wonderful as well as the continental breakfast. The room was clean, spacious and modern with a flair of classic that compliments the nice area the Inn is located in (easy access to everything). Our room had a balcony that was nice sit outside and catch up on some reading. My wife, daughter and I were very pleased with The Gables Inn and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Some rooms have amazing views of SF bay and others have balconies but no view. Either can be a winne...

Beautiful B&B tucked in the hills of Sausalito with wonderful views of San Francisco. A short trip to the city. Each room is beautifully decorated with its own unique charm. Fabulous choice of rooms from Victorian with a claw foot tub to the Suite on the top floor with a jacuzzi tub and phenomenal views of San Francisco. Service is impeccable the manager Michael will make sure your stay is perfect. Excellent breakfast and wine and appetizers in the evening. All rooms are stocked well with a mini bar of local treats and local wines from Napa. I felt like a new person after one night. Many repeat guests from around the world which makes for interesting conversation in the cozy living room in front of the fireplace.
A definite must stay when traveling to Sausalito San Francisco and Napa.

This is our second stay here, and hopefully not our last. I can't say enough about the staff here at The Gables. From the email correspondence before we booked until checkout, the customer service was outstanding. We stayed in the Buckeye Room last time and the Cypress Room this time. The rooms are similar and share a patio with a view of the bay, which we love for quiet time.
Little touches are added to every aspect of your stay to make it memorable, from the fresh cut flowers, to the relaxing music, to the fresh fruit and nuts served at happy hour and breakfast. No pre-fab food here. I had mentioned to the staff that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and within minutes of checking in, a special surprise was delivered to our room. You get a sense of genuine friendliness from the staff here, and that is rare in their industry.

Room Tip: Buckeye and Cypress are ground level for easy access from your car, only a few steps from the breakf...

We booked 4 rooms for our family to explore San Fran for a few days before our wedding. The inn is very cozy and super convenient to the downtown shops. The entire staff was so friendly and made our family feel at home. We were pleasantly surprised with the evening wine hour and generous spread of cheese, crackers and appetizers. The morning breakfast also had a great selection and we appreciated the fresh fruits and healthy choices. There was always lemon water and coffee in the common area. The rooms were very cozy and I think we'll stay here instead of the city for our future trips. The ferry to SF was a fun way to explore the city without having to drive.

Special thanks to the entire staff for your hospitality. My family will never forget this trip and you helped us get off to a great start.
