This is our first time here, the prices in Cannon Beach for Memorial Day Weekend were a little high, so we ventured out and found this place. We are happy with our decision, it is clean, comfortable, and friendly too. Our breakfast this morning was continental, I appreciated the fresh Strawberries, homemade Granola, two kinds, yogurt, OJ and Coffee. They... More

We stayed in the Turret room. Very cozy. The bed was comfortable, there was plenty of space for our stuff. The bathroom was clean everything was in good working condition. Breakfast was fine - it included toast, granola, yogurt, milk, juice, coffee and tea, scones, and an egg bake/quiche. The building was charming and the garden outside was beautiful. The... More

The Gilbert Inn has old fashioned charm. I visited with my wife, and stayed one night in Room 9, a standard queen room. It was clean, well presented, and with a comfortable queen bed. There were coffee making, water, sweets, biscuits, and toiletries in the room. The bathroom has a full bath with shower over. Overall a charming spot to... More

The ownership has changed over the years. It is now owned/managed by a "group" that owns several in the area. So no more breakfast, just bed. However the charm, cleanliness is still there. And the location is great, except for the humongous gross timeshare that ws built to the north. The city zoning should not have allowed such a monstrosity... More

For this year’s Oregon tour we decided to stay once again at the Gilbert Inn as we had done so twelve years ago. To our sweet surprise, we found, it had not lost any of the charm and the beauty we remembered. A very friendly hostess greeted us showed us our room on the same floor. The room was a... More

Property is well maintained, rooms were neat and clean, lobby includes some interesting antique furniture. Our bed was hard as a board, the sort of bed that causes your arm and shoulder to fall asleep. Hardly slept at all. The continental breakfast provided was sub-standard. The coffee was the cheap, thin sort of coffee I recall from the factory break-room.... More

Love the place. Beautiful old home, well kept with a lot of character. Great location - one short block from the ocean and a full block from the main street where you can find many different places to eat. Breakfast was very good and in a sunny room.

The Gilbert Inn is a wonderful little place in a great location. It is literally a one block walk to the beach and two blocks to downtown. There is ample free parking at the hotel, so you might just leave your car the whole stay. The hotel is nicely decorated and extremely clean. Our room was a bit small, but... 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.
