This inn is a cool place - lots of character and history. If you're expecting modern, upscale accommodations, this is not the place - its over 100 years old and is full of creaks and squeaks, you can hear your neighbors or other guests in the halls, and there isn't a gourmet restaurant to serve your breakfast. We did not have these expectations and were looking forward to experiencing a quirky but comfortable historic inn.

We did find the room to be quite comfortable - the bed was fine, the room was warm, the bathroom was...a bathroom. The West-facing rooms on the 2nd floor have a little bit of a water view.

The rooms have been updated with some post-1900's amenities like a coffee maker, ceiling fan, wall-mounted TV, cable, etc. The TV, however, was just kinda banged up on the wall with a bunch of cords/cables dangling down. For us, it was an eyesore and took away from the charm that an historic inn should have.

Great location - walking distance to everything. Parking is limited, but there seems to be enough spaces for each room. Dogs are welcome. A simple breakfast is provided which was fine - nothing super fancy, but freshly prepared and served by one very friendly and accommodating staff member. There's a gas fire pit out front with some seating around, plus a few other outdoor hangout spaces.

We were disappointed with the quality of service upon check-in. Not that we need someone to run out to our car to help with the bags, but a friendly hello, welcome, or at a minimum some eye contact would have been more well received. We did arrive about 5 minutes before check-in time, though. By 3:00, there were maybe 5 or 6 other guests congregated in the lobby - none of whom were greeted or acknowledged. I get it though, working in hospitality can be a drag and everyone has an off day. We got the keys, parking pass, and relevant info, so mission accomplished.

The room was clean enough, but felt either rushed or haphazard. Some dust here and there, door handle and light switch felt...tacky(?), some light bulbs were burnt out - nothing severe enough to make a complaint, but just kinda meh.

Check-out was fine. Dropped the keys off with a different staff member at reception who was friendly, courteous, and polite.

We may give it another shot in the future, but our experience was underwhelming.

Room tip: Great location

Clean[except the blinds were dusty] , comfortable well kept. Close to everything.
. Nice that it's dog friendly! No mini frig. Which I thought everywhere has. Breakfast good but slow...people waited 10-30 minutes to get it.

Room tip: I d ask for 1st floor if you have a dog. Stairs are really steep!

Both my husband and I love this historic B and B! Some of the rooms are small but very nicely appointed and the bathrooms are a nice size. The staff Is very friendly and helpful and breakfast was very tasty! This place is very affordable and a gem in Seaside!

Room tip: The Gilbert Inn is just one block from the promenade in Seaside. Close to the beach, shopping, and the arcade.

We had an awesome time! Comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, sweet to be so close to the beach and Promenade! We enjoyed the hostesses, Mary, Ashley and Brenda, as well as our breakfast host, Leo! All did an excellent job making us feel welcomed and comfortable! Will stay again!

We have stayed at the Gilbert Inn before and loved it. They are always very accommodating & helpful. It’s fun to stay in the historical home & enjoy all its charm. The location is perfect to town, prom & beach. We will return for more memories.
