We had a great stay at Gilbert Inn....close to the ocean and close to downtown Seaside....no complaints...very quiet and pleasant atmosphere. We would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was very comfortable, clean and cozy. The caretaker is friendly and made us feel very comfortable.Of course the warm chocolate chip cookies are a bonus! We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast not included"
Beautiful house, lovely attention to detail with styling and original features, but other than initial welcome there was invisible hospitality which felt rather strange as it felt like a home rather than an Inn , but no one was in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right off the beach"
Loved the place. Was such a change from a regular hotel/motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wishing we could stay longer"
This is a great little place. It is a block away from the beach and the street with all of the local stores which means that you can quickly walk to the beach, to a restaurant, or to a local store without having to have all of the busyness right in your face. You can relax in the very calming setting. My wife and I were wishing we could stay for a few […] more nights! Highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
lovely old home, beautiful inside, quite and peaceful. Unfortunately the buildings around it are large hotels and take away from the view- but that is not their fault! They were there first!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband is not a fan of "bed and breakfast" places. This place was very personal. (no getting to know your neighbors!) Very comfortable and we love the historical part of this place! We go to Cannon Beach and/or Seaside at least once a year. This trip was just the two of us, so this place was perfect. No children/pets/smoking. We like to try new […] places. we may go back to Gilbert House! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful historic house (1892)."
The Inn Keeper, Maria, was extremely friendly and welcoming. The "Renee" room was charming. We enjoyed the 'common' areas of the Inn, including the parlor and sunroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet, quaint room with beach access"
Stay was comfortable. Nice room that felt more like a guest bedroom than a hotel room. Friendly receptionist. Clean, comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed two nights and found the hotel to be clean and well run by friendly staff. It's location is near the beach with good restaurants nearby. We would definitely recommend it as an excellent alternative to the cookie cutter motels.Genuine Expedia guest review
old wooden we were concerned no fire escapes poor sound insulationGenuine Expedia guest review
The Gilbert Inn is located right in the middle of Seaside's promenade area and only about 100 steps from the beach. Location is definitely a BIG plus - you can easily park your car and walk to most every place you would want to go. There is a HUGE timeshare condo complex across the street and I could see how it could be loud on a busy weekend, but that […] it probably the case for all of the hotels in this main area. If you read the descriptions on your reservation, you will see that there is no breakfast... So technically it is not a B&B, but it does have the feel of one. The staff is very helpful and welcoming, making you feel comfortable at the inn. The rooms are small (the size of a typical home's bedroom) but they have a private bathroom and there is plenty of space to sleep and relax for a moment in your room (which is all you really need to do in a hotel room at the beach) ... After all you're at the beach to relax on it - rather than in your room! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, easy to find"
Maria welcomed us with a big smile and a tour of this lovely home. She recommended a great restaurant for dinner and a cute cafe for breakfast. Everything is within walking distance - great promenade to walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room too small, bed too soft and uncomfortable. Pillows too soft. Clean but lacks there was they did not supply soap and shampoo next day with no one on duty to ask for service. No breakfast or drinking water. As mall bowl of fruit in the snack area and a small plate of cookies left in the shared living area in the evening. The owner admits the guests. […] Customer service is not her strong point. I will not stay there again and will not recommend. Too expensive for what itcis. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you have trouble getting into an old fashion tub this is not for you to take a shower.We had a room at rear of house was hot and stuffy had to have fan on all night woke up with aching shoulders and stuffy head had to leave window open and renters in cottages below were very noisey. The house was very victorian and clean no breakfast served you just […] sleep and go. e location is perfect next door to Worldmark right on the promenade.Constructive advise would be to do major landscaping to represent the beauty of the house they have let it so and that makes the place not as desirable to look at outside which should not be the case.If I stayed again I would pick a front room facing the ocean so you can get an ocean breeze because there is no airconditioning.

"A great old house & close to everything in Seaside"
We really enjoyed staying in this neat old house. Maria was very nice & took good care of us & answered all of our questions. It did rain every day, but was nice to hear it on the roof at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Gilbert Inn represented the 7th night of an 8 night whirlwind tour of the Pacific Northwest. During that time, we stayed in some "average" places as well as a few very nice places. The Gilbert in, however, was not only the nicest place we stayed, but also the 2nd least expensive. What a winning combination! This place had charm oozing out of every […] pore, and was only one block from the beach. If I had three hands, I'd give it three thumbs up! Be sure to get a home-made chocolate chip cookie from the parlor before they are all gone! Mmmmmmm! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gilbert Inn in Seaside, OR"
This was a great little inn in Seaside, OR. It's about a 15 minute drive from Cannon Beach, so just be aware of that when booking. The other issue is that there's no front desk, so if you need anything or get locked out of your room, you should call the innkeeper. She's pretty responsive.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife n I flew in from Hawaii n wanted something a little different than your usual hotel. My wife had found the Gilbert Inn n we had made two separate bookings n the first night we got there we were met by Maria who gave us the tour n history of this old Victorian home. Our first night we stayed in a beautiful room which was the newer addition to […] the home. And the next night we've stayed in the Gilbert room. A spectacular room with a view. Jus the architecture n design of the house n room itself was amazing. Like we've said it's a different atmosphere than your usual hotel. We highly recommend people staying here n in the Gilbert room.

"I became engaged here :)"
I'm so glad we ended up choosing the Gilbert Inn...a romantic, immaculately-kept historic home. We hope to return for our honeymoon! Thanks, Maria, you're fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Historical Property"
What a fabulous property! Maria provided a very warm welcome and showed us around the inn and to our charming room. We'd love to go back and stay longer next time. Just a block off the Promenade and so close to restaurants and the downtown shops, the inn couldn't be in a better location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gilbert Inn - At the Beach in Seaside"
Seaside, frankly, lacks some of the charm of several other OR/WA coastal towns but the Gilbert Inn makes up for it in spades with their cordial welcome and near-perfect lodging. One block from the beach and the Seaside "Prom." Walking distance to nearby restaurants, taffy shops and watering holes - could you possibly ask for more?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This converted mansion is very charming and has much character.Genuine Expedia guest review
Thank you so much for making our 30th Anniversary trip wonderful! We will definitely be staying here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to stay, my wife and I loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful place to stay. Had the 1880 room which had a really nice sitting room. Enjoyed the sun room very much. Maria was just lovely when she greeted us and gave us the history of the inn. The cookies in the late afternoon was a welcome surprise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Delightful spot. Lovely rooms. Outstanding attention from the innkeeper, Maria, every time we go. Great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice historic hotel-house"
All the comforts of home, a cozy inviting atmosphere, close to the Seaside Turn-around and beach. It's a great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic getaway in a perfect location"
A short stroll to the beach and a few blocks from the main entertainment and dining area. The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable. We felt very at home and had plenty of privacy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for couples."
It was very nice. You are not getting much more detail from me, I just don't like filling out surveys. Sorry. It was a nice location and a comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great romantic spot by the beach!"
The Garrett Room was a great spot for us 1 block from the beach. Too bad they don't serve breakfast, but there are several restaurants within a block or two.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Secret romance in the heart of Seaside"
It was a great pleasure to experience Seaside from the heart of its origins. The host, Maria, was friendly and attentive, and offered us fresh baked cookies. We spent a cozy hour in front of the fireplace reading in the evening. If you like quiet, history, romance and comfort, this is your place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A beautiful Victorian"
A nicely restored and maintained Victorian with an added sun porch and a fireplace downstairs in the sitting room (great in Oregon Coast weather). Original Douglas Fir paneling adds a nice regional touch. Near the beach and restaurants, but no breakfast served. Room a bit small, but great for couples.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A perfect little inn!"
Great experience at the Gilbert Inn. It's is a cute, cozy inn walking distance from town. Maria, the Inn Keeper, is lovely and made the stay very pleasant. The rooms are adorable and the beds are extremely comfortable. Everything was clean and just so. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone staying in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect spot to visit Seaside"
The Innkeeper Maria was very frendly and gave us a small tour. The House was great the way it was decorated with all the antiques made it look fantastic. The room was very nice with a comfortable bed. One block to the ocean and easy walking to resturants and shopping. We would definitly recomend staying there.Genuine Expedia guest review
What a great place. The innkeeper keeps everything spotless and was very enthusiastic. My only (very small) complaint would be that because the house is somewhat older, which is part of its charm of course, there is a lot of creaking etc and the walls are somewhat thin. But we had a wonderful stay and will recommend to anyone visiting Seaside!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay at the Gilbert Inn. The innkeeper was very friendly and informative about history of the inn. She also was helpful with local restaurant selections and activites in the area. The room was decorated very nicely and was clean. There are also nice common sitting areas in the living room and porches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect place for personal reflection time!"
We were warmly greeted an amazing Innkeeper named Maria. She was so pleasant and treated us like long lost family~~I'm sure she has shared the history of the Gilbert Inn many times, but she shared it again with enthusiasm. The coffee is wonderful, the cookies are delicious! It would make a perfect bed and BREAKFAST, but then the rates would go up. We […] loved the Renee room! and will return again.☺ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I want to keep this place a secret!"
Beyond expectations. Maria met us at the door, gave a tour of the Inn, answered all questions. everything about our stay was excellent! Thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort at Seaside"
Beautiful and historic. Great location. Walking distance to the Ocean, restaurants, and shops. Felt right at home. Maria was there to greet me and show me my room. Loved the feel of the whole house. Would recommend to all my friends and family. Nothing negative to say at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old fashioned romance near the beach!"
A beautiful 120 year old home right near the beach! Very clean rooms within walking distance of the beach, restaraunts and tourist attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Inn itself is great. Sitting next to the parking garage is inconvenient. Very noisy all night long. Every time a car comes out of the garage a bell goes off for the pedestrians and the guests get to hear it too. We had to shut our window for peace and quiet when a cool breeze would have been nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from home"
We really enjoyed our one night stay. We especially appreciated our host, Maria's warm welcome and delicious fresh baked cookies. We also really liked the fresh fruit and good coffee. We loved the decorative interior with hard wood floors, luxiourous fabric, and cozy fireplace. We liked that our stay was peaceful and quiet and easy walking distance […] to the beach and restaurants. We greatly enjoyed a dinner and breakfast at Maggie's Cafe, which is a short walk away. Also, parking was ample and easy. We would stay here again and will recommend this to our friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little Inn"
When we got here I didn't know there was a check in time window, so we were late getting in. But, the Inn keeper was very helpful and left me a message since I didn't hear my phone ring. She told me everything was fine and gave me careful instructions on how to get our keys, so we can stay there for the night. The room we stayed in was very cozy, very […] comfortable, and has a homey feeling! Even though there was a huge event being held at the beach, we both slept straight through the night.

"The place to stay in Seaside"
The Inn is beautiful both inside and out. It is obviously a labor of love restoring this 1892 home. The location is a block away from the ocean and in walking distance of most services and restaurants. We will definately stay there again in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Happy, Relaxing Time"
Our experience was wonderful, we will definitely visit again. The staff was friendly, the rooms clean and quaint, and the house was very enjoyable to spend time relaxing. The Innkeeper Maria made you feel welcome and is willing to sit and chat, like your a old friend. =)Genuine Expedia guest review

This was the best place for my wife and I for our anniversary getaway in Seaside. Words cannot describe the ambiance of this Inn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy retreat for couples"
The Gilbert Inn had historic charm and comfortable rooms. Fresh baked cookies every afternoon were a bonus! If you cannot handle stairs, you might want to stay somewhere else. Otherwise, I think the Gilbert Inn is the best experience in Seaside.Genuine Expedia guest review
