Hotel has an incredible location. We stayed in room 327 with an incredible view of the beach and the pier right off our balcony. Beachfront, top floor, nobody above us. The view was awesome! But the hotel was not quite as clean as I would have hoped. Our welcome book that stayed in the room had tons of popcorn stuck... More

Love this place. Great staff and location. Will be back very soon. We hand tbe perfect view of the ocean and the pier. Plus just a short walk across the parking lot to Buddy's for an afternoon beverage and super fresh seafood on the weekends!

The room was clean, comfortable and well-equipped for a short or long stay. Everyone was really nice. The character of the hotel was perfect- definitely an "old-school" beach hotel, not fancy, but in a perfect location, and very reasonable in cost. If you are looking for a Hilton or a ton of amenities, look elsewhere, but if you like location,... More

We try to stay at the Silver Gull every time we have a festival at Wrightsville Beach, and I always request a room with the ocean view. There is a wonderful walkway built out over the sand dunes and the sea gulls come for their breakfast and eat out of my hand every day! And it's right across from the... More

My family and I recently chose this hotel to stay. My advice to travelers is to find somewhere else. Had we been able to find another hotel while we were there we would have. We paid extra for what we were told was a recently renovated room. Surely this was a mistake when we entered the room so we went... More

Carpet was green & dirty...very outdated....Parkin is bad unless you drive a tiny car. Bed frames were dirty... And I am not picky! Nice staff....good location .just needs to be extremely renovated for me to ever stay here again. It would great with something simple as new carpet :)

We stayed here during the week and had a 2nd floor end unit that is oceanfront. The best thing about this place was the patio with the view! The room and bathroom are in need of upgrading and smelled of stale smoke, even though supposedly non-smoking. The covered parking is nice and can't beat the location! Because of that, we... More

This motel is small and family owned. It is ocean front and half the cost of the big hotels on the beach. It is exactly what you need if you want to stay at the beach for the beach. All rooms have balconies most with great views. The rooms look updated with a kitchen. Beds are not great but I... More

We rented a ocean front room for Sat., Sun., and Mon.. Our rates were $210, $170, and $170, plus 13% tax. Our room was large and the view was awesome. We had two walls that had huge windows an each had a sliding door. We also had a large deck. This was the best part of the room. We had... More

My wife and I suddenly found ourselves with a one night “vacation”. We figured the odds of calling a hotel on the beach on a Saturday for the following Monday would be slim to none. And to get one for less than $200 the week of 4th of July would be next to impossible. Well, it wasn’t. Research indicated the... More
