We couldn't have asked for a better place. We hosted our daughter's wedding reception at the Gilbert Inn and it was fantastic! The friendly and helpful staff, Mary and Birgitte, enabled us to put on an event that will bring smiles to our faces whenever we think back to our time there. The historic nature of the building made for a beautiful backdrop at every turn. We stayed in Marthe's room which is located next to the reception desk. The kitchenette was just right and the bed was comfortable. There's also a cozy couch that converts into a bed. The included breakfast is made to order and tasty. You simply fill out the provided menu card and place it in the appropriate container at the reception desk the night before. The following morning between 8-10 just make yourself comfortable in the Sun room and let the kitchen know what room you're in. Shortly after your freshly made breakfast will be delivered to your table.…
Couldn't have asked for four nicer days at The Gilbert Inn! Loved staying in the Turret Room! A nice blend of history with all the modern conveniences. The bed was soooo comfortable! Breakfasts were delicious! (Thank you Leo!) Loved the fire pit with a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. The location was great - the beach and restaurants were just a short walk away. And lastly the staff were all so friendly, especially the ladies at the front desk! They greeted us warmly and offered great suggestions for local things to do. Thank you Gilbert Inn for a great mini vacation!
The Gilbert Inn is in a great location with easy access to all of Seaside, much of it walkable. It may be because of short staffing with covid, but my room hadn't had a detailed cleaning in some time. There was a good amount of dust and the tile in the bathroom needed a good scrubbing. Overall it was a nice stay. The folks in the kitchen were particularly friendly and attentive. I'd try it again.
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and had such an enjoyable time at the Gilbert Inn. The historic Turret Room, tasty breakfast, and wonderful service from the staff makes us so excited to return.
Our stay at Gilbert Inn couldn’t have been more enjoyable. Location near the Prom was convenient for watching the gorgeous sunset! The breakfast was delicious! The lady at checkout was extremely friendly and informative about things to do! We will recommend this inn to our friends.
