The Gables Inn is in a great location, convenient to the harbor, restaurants and shops in the downtown area. We chose to stay in the Bay Room, one of their top (most expensive) rooms. The room was large and the view was good (see photos) although marred by wires (phone/electric?) that crossed the view in the foreground. The website photo of the room is accurate, but we did find some things we were unhappy with.
When we arrived the waste basket had not been emptied and there were someone's leftover snacks in the refrigerator. The bathroom window was open and would not close - the frame was broken (you could see the rotted wood on the bottom). The management obviously knew about this, but in speaking with three different people, each brushed it off with "you know this is a very old building". On our second day there it was "repaired" - closed so that it could not be opened until they got around to replacing the window frame. (They told us they would be doing that and asked if it was OK that we would be unable to open the window.) There is a daily parking fee. I was aware of this from my conformation letter although upon arrival I was told that it was $20 per day. I said that my letter (and the info in the room) quoted $15 per day. They said that it had increased in March. After I protested I was given the $15 rate.

On the positive side, as I first mentioned, the location is terrific. The breakfast and afternoon wine & cheese were very good. (No hot items for breakfast, but a good selection of fruits, yogurts, delicious pastries, etc.) Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well.

All in all, I doubt that we would return. While this lovely old historic Sausalito building has a lot to offer, given the cost of the rooms, it needs some more TLC.

Room Tip: Be aware that there is a great deal of stair climbing if you choose one of the more expensive "view" rooms since the Inn is actually two separate buildings connected by a courtyard.

This small hotel is situated on a side street in "downtown" Sausalito. It couldn't be more convenient. Staff is courteous and very ready to help with advise for restaurants, sightseeing, etc. The hotel is set up more like a small condominium with two attached buildings and a courtyard in between. There is on site parking for $20 per day charge.
We had one of the smaller rooms with a king bed and large sofa bed in the adjoining living room. Two TV's, one a huge flat screen. Linens were good quality. Toiletries by Aveno. Rooms were tastefully done in light colored fabrics. Large jetted tub with nice shower. A shelf above the pedestal sink would have solved the awkwardness of where to put your things. They offer complementary wine (one red and one white) with a nice assortment of cheese and olives from 5:30 to 7:30 in the evening. There is continental breakfast in the morning with cereal, pastry and fruit. No hot dishes. The place is not cheap at $300 on up, but not at all out of line for the area. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the Gables Inn for the first night of our recent road trip around California. We were greated by the nicest of receptionists (a young lady, sorry i have forgotten her name) i have ever come accross. She made us feel so welcome and even kept the wine and cheese behind for us as we had arrived just as it was finishing.
We stayed in a wonderful room over looking the bay with a balcony which we took full advantage of whilst sipping our wine and enjoying our first night in America.
The facilities and service at the hotel are exceptional and nothing is too much trouble for anyone that we came accross.
We will certainly go back and would recommend anyone that is going through Sausalito stay at this lovely sleepy inn.

Room Tip: Look for rooms on the upper level and that have a view of the San Francisco skyline, the view at night has to be seen to be belived.

I stayed here for 5 days during a road trip around CA. When you step into the hotel, the aroma from the flowers and candles is just beautiful and relaxing. I stayed in room 103, the Laurel room. It was well equipped with a large wardrobe, bedside tables with drawers as well as an iron and ironing board. The bathroom had a tub with jets and a shower. The breakfast was excellent, lots of fruit and pastries. Cheese and wine in the evening is a lovely extra as well. It's in a great location for catching the ferry across to San Francisco and is at the right side of the city for escaping up to Napa and Sonoma valleys. There are a lot of good restaurants within walking distance in Sausalito and lots of nice little shops too. Would definitely recommend staying here.

We had stayed at the Gables Inn on a previous visit to Sausalito and decided to try it again for our anniversary. To get one of the better view rooms, we have learned to book far in advance. We booked in May for our September visit but still didn't get the room we wanted. As it turned out, it was the best room in the inn...room 305, with a sweeping view of Angel Island, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge and of course, the San Francisco skyline. The room is showing a little wear, spots on the carpet by the bed, one of the window cranks didn't work and the stopper in the bathroom sink didn't work. The room was pricey, but the view made it worth it. What I object to the most is the fact that they charge $20 per day to park on their own property...really? The rate includes a cheese and wine hour in the evening and a continental breakfast each morning. There are only four decent places to stay in Sausalito and this is one of the best, but they need to keep up with some of the minor repairs and wear and tear to warrant the high prices.

Room Tip: Book early to get the room that you want. Bring ear plugs since some rooms front on a busy street.
