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

"Management" called less than 24 hours prior to check- in of my reservation stating they would have to move my booked room because "the oceanfront room next to you has no air conditioning" and instead of fixing the air conditioning in the ocean front unit, they actually "planned to open an adjoining door to your room to let air conditioning...

I have walked past this motel for many years so I decided that the next time I went to Wrightsville Beach I'd give it a try. I was so glad I did. The daily rates at this beach front motel are reasonable, I had an updated room that was larger than I expected with 2 double beds & a small... More

Stayed here Mothers Day weekend. The hotel & room were clean although dated, especially the carpet. The bed linens smelled very fresh & clean. The house keeping & front desk staff were friendly & helpful. View from room 212 was beautiful although it was a side view room. I enjoyed having the front deck with steps leading right down onto...

Good clean older hotel, excellent location. The only problem is that there is no staff after 11pm. If you have problems with loud neighbors or any problem there will be no one to call until the morning.

We enjoyed our stay here. It was affordable and clean. We had an updated room and the bathroom was really nice. The location is excellent.. right on the beach! Unfortunately, there's no swimming pool. Wrightsville Beach is a nice seaside town, and it's a great place if you are there just for the beach. This hotel is near a few... More

Was a little disappointed that they didn't have a website, or good pictures of the rooms, but pleasantly surprised. Kinda "old school" but staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean with all needed amenities. View and location were OUTSTANDING. No better place to stay at the beach. Get room 211!

Landed here when the HI Resort sold out for a conference I attended in October 2013. The location is ideal for anything you'd want to do while at Wrightsville Beach, on the same circle as Johnny Mercer's pier and just a skip and a jump over the bridge back into Wilmington. I wasn't sure what to expect with it being... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Silver Gull over the 4th of July weekend. I was really happy with our choice! The location is unbeatable-- right on the ocean. The rooms were great! Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, full kitchen with refrigerator and our own balcony. I was really happy with the room amenities. I was expecting your typical... More
