Old school beach motel with a great family atmosphere. Very clean and priced very well. Owners and staff were some of the nicest people I ever met. Don't tell anyone though, I would hate for the word to get out on this great hideaway.

He handed us real jangly keys and I knew right then that this place was going to be an incredible stay. Right on the ocean and real mugs in the kitchenette. I had a blast here and loved its small town retro feel. The staff is incredibly pleasant and they make you feel like family. I will definitely be back,... More

We decided to try The Silver Gull....and Im totally happy that we did. At first, i was a little apprehensive, because it looked kinda dated. We got lucky enough to gwt a renovated room and it...

Best place we stayed on our trip to the beach! A small family-owned hotel Great balconies with ocean views and chairs. Nice big room with kitchenette. Could have used a few small repairs. All 3 people on desk duty were very nice and helpful. When we arrived, I asked if there was an oceanfront room available for the second night.... More

Great location beside the pier and right on the beach! Not fancy but clean and way more affordable than any of the other hotels in the area! The parking is free & in a parking deck so its much cooler. The staff was so friendly and very helpful.

The hotel is adjacent to a busy public spot next to the pier. The efficiency room was clean, with dishes a pot, pan and a stove,oven, and microwave, with dated bathroom fixtures and rough sliding glass doors lead to nice individual balconies.

We had a corner room with a balcony facing the ocean. It also included a kitchenette. There was a pop machine, ice machine, and washer/dryer on our floor. We absolutely loved this place. It was so relaxing and the staff were friendly. We stayed in room 210 and definitely plan on returning. The room wasn't the cleanest (minor stuff) but... More

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
