Me and my husband stayed here for one night and we were very pleased with this motel. It was very clean and had a nice Florida feel to the decor. It was nice that they had a heated pool too, since it was pretty cool when we went here. The beach is only footsteps away though. If you're staying in... More

Arrived here for a quick labor day weekend getaway. Check in was easy (Check in at the motel btw). When we walked in, we were greeted by 1 of the innkeepers. They are a young couple (maybe exchange students?). They didn't say too much, but were very attentive. (We had a small issue with the drain in our sink that... More

We stayed at the Motel part for three nights. We loved to walked only 82 steps (yes we counted) from the room to the sandy beach, and to be only 15 minutes walking distance from the pier attractions. The top floor king room was amazing, with a nice cathedral ceiling. The room was big enough for the two of us,... More

We booked here last minute and stayed 3 nights we just got home last night. After the first night we wanted out! But we had already paid in advance, of course! We counted on the reviews on Trip Advisor, it seemed like a great place. Nothing could be further from the truth! From the moment we parked (on the grass)... More

My husband and I have stayed at the inn three times over the past four years,most recently this past weekend. We stumbled upon it by accident several years ago and have been in love with the place since. The inn is an unexpected gem within OOB. It is within walking distance of the Pier, etc. but far away enough from... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Inn. What a gorgeous place! The owners have done a beautiful job with it and by the way, they are both very pleasant people to speak with. From the inside of the 1st floor with its beauty and spaciousness, to our room facing the ocean with the oval window, we fell in... More

The motel is old, but very clean. I was not prepared for the lack of shampoo, hair dryer and coffee, as I walked in at the last min. I was surprised that there was a coffee maker and no coffee. Also, I think we were supposed to take out our own trash. The side ocean view is very limited wire... More

I stayed at both the motel and the inn in July/August 2013. I will start by saying I recommend the Inn over the motel, but if you want a stove and fridge in the room, and you don't mind a little humidity and not having the same parking spot each day, take the motel. I did not see the inside... More

The Gull is made up of several buildings. The one we and a group of family members have returned to over the past 5 years is the Inn, a beautiful old home with a wrap around veranda and just 12 rooms. It is right on the beach and close to all the restaurants and OOB activities. There was one change... More
