This is a 1950's style Motel, it is very clean and comfortable. The front desk is very helpful, and the coffee and muffins in the morning are excellent. This motel is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. the prices are very reasonable

Close to attractions, with a fridge and microwave, an excellent place to call home base for your mid coast Maine travels. Peter is a friendly host, and coffee in the lobby is a bonus. Air conditioning in the rooms is nice this time of year. This will be our Belfast area accommodation from now on.

For the last couple of years, my sister and I have driven to Maine from Oklahoma. Both trips we have stayed in the town we grew up in. Belfast. Both years we stayed at the Gull for several nights. Friendly people, clean rooms (this year it felt as if they had replaced the carpet/carpet pads--like walking on clouds!) ...not to... More

Great accommodations! Peter was very friendly and helpful with our get away weekend that we needed. Room was very clean and the muffins, danishes and coffee in the morning started our morning with a smile.We will definitely stay there again the next time we are up that way.

My sister and I stayed at the Gull Motel for one night. After a very long day hiking at Acadia, we made our way to the motel and were very happy to find such clean and comfortable room to crash. The bathroom was a wee small, but the place was a great value. Very happy - thanks!

We enjoyed our short stay at The Gull. The room was comfortable, and noise from the road unnoticable. Peter was extremely helpful, and was gracious to return one night's fee when we changed plans and left sooner than we had booked.I will likely return.

Thanks for the positive comments, Maureen. When a guest says "I''ll be back", that says it all. We were happy to accommodate your change of plans. The last thing we want to do is charge you for not staying here. More

Everything was adequate. Very clean and reasonably priced for a busy/lobster time of year. Very friendly office staff and cleaning help. Bathroom was quite small, but fresh and clean. Good ventilation (front & back windows) and available air if needed. Beds were comfortable (looked like double queens in all rooms). Highway noise not noticeable.

Dan, you obviously appreciated everything we have to offer at the Gull Motel. While we are a traditional roadside motel and therefore don't offer some of the amenities provided by other properties, we can offer a clean, reasonably priced, friendly and comfortable place to stay. These are qualities which are essential in the hospitality business,but in my experience surprisingly hard... More

Really liked this place. We needed a pet-friendly motel in this area. The room are pretty basic, and the bathroom is small, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the proprietors more than made up for that. The location is great, and I especially liked having good coffee available almost all the time. I also appreciated having a refrigerator and microwave... More
