Positive Reviews


Fantastic location to explore Seaside

Nearly every past guest of the Gilbert Inn has been delighted with its central location in downtown Seaside. A stone's throw away from the beach and pier, the inn is also surrounded by a variety of shops, restaurants and attractions such as the Seaside Aquarium.


Comfortable and well-maintained house

The accommodation in general has received a lot of praise for being well-maintained despite its traditional old-fashioned style. In addition, the rooms and public spaces of the inn are considered by most to be comfortable and spotlessly clean.


Staff a delight

The customer service provided by the Gilbert Inn is at a very high standard - in the opinion of many former visitors. The staff members are all described as being professional, friendly and cooperative at all times.

Negative Reviews


Niggling noise problem

Noise has proved to be a constant problem for past guests that have stayed at the Gilbert Inn. The noticeable noise is generally attributed to the inn and its setting within an antiquated house, which supposedly lacks the adequate soundproofing to block out external sounds in each individual room.


No breakfast option

The lack of any breakfast option at the inn has resulted in negative comments from some previous guests. With that said, the accommodation is in close vicinity to many different dining options which offsets this problem to an extent.


Air conditioning not included

A small number of former visitors to the Gilbert Inn have bemoaned the omission of air conditioning in the rooms, with it said that the rooms can become too warm at times. However, fans can reportedly be provided upon request.
