We began our stay in Hatteras at another motel, but moved to this one and we were glad that we did. It is old-style, but clean and comfortable! It has good working internet (something our other, more pricey motel had difficulties with). And best of all for my wife who is a beach person, it is right on the beach,... More

This is a typical old style traveler's motel. It is close to the beach and we found that that was about it. No food, very little amenities and at a price that would get you much more. Our suggestion was to continue south until Hatteras, or find a nice Bed and Breakfast in the area. By the way, we didn't... More

This mom and pop motel was perfect for us. We stayed in room 108 and it had 2 large beds plus a daybed with a trundle. it slept our family of 5 with room to spare. The linens and towels were dated and a bit worn but the place was spotless. i would certainly book that room again

We stayed here when I was a kid. We took mom back to see it, she as Alzheimer's. she really enjoyed it. My husband is not a beach guy, but even he say it was perfect! Staff treated us like family. Grandbaby and I had a blast going to the beach every morning looking for shells. We are going back... More

Location, location, location. Stride out the door, over the dune, and onto a lovely long sandy beach. Clean, functional efficiency rooms; spacious with few frills. A/C works but is noisy. Shops, restaurants, sights, and ferry all within short driving distance. Superior to similar motels south of Avon available at the same price.

My family of four recently stayed at the Sea Gull Motel on Hatteras Island. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the access to the beach and swimming in the hotel's nice pool. One evening I inquired how late the pool stayed open and the staff person said 10:00 PM. She said if... More

I just got back from taking my Mom to the Outer Banks. It was our first trip to that area. We had a great trip. Our stay at the Sea Gull Motel was very nice. The Sea Gull is an older motel but it is nice. The desk clerk was very friendly and we were able to check in early.... More

Many moons ago, my best friend's family used to stay at the OLD Sea Gull Motel every summer. However, as the family grew in size, and the little kids became big kids, they moved on to rental homes to accommodate their large group. In 2003, Hurricane Isabelle blew through town and did a little remodeling along the Outer Banks, thus... More

Walk to the beautiful Hatteras beach in less than 30 seconds. Room is large, very large with two queen beds, one sofa bed, two tables and three chairs. Refrigerator and microwave. I had to shut down the refregerator because it was way too noisy for me. Bathroom nice. Clean. Now the problems: Walls are very thin with no sound proofing... More
