This hotel was right on the beach!!! The room was clean and comfortable. Also has a big deck overlooking the boardwalk/ beach. Right next to Dairy Queen!!! Would highly recommend this hotel unfortunately, they are closing in September. From what we heard, they were bought by Hilton Hotels.

The location was great, there was a lot of good food close by and the price wasn't bad. The beds were pretty comfortable and there was working AC. The hotel had a hot tub, pool and sun deck which were also pretty nice. The hotel staff on the other hand was not the nicest, they weren't rude, but they also... More

This was the perfect spot for the Virginia Beach Marathon. The starting line was minutes away and the finish line was even closer. The price was extremely inexpensive and I felt like we lucked out finding the place. The runners go by the hotel twice so fans can easily cheer on their family members. The hotel was far from fancy.... More

We stayed here in the last week of April and really liked the place. We had an ocean view and a very nice room on the 4th floor. The inn is pretty centrally located and is right on the beach. I know it is an older hotel, but we really liked it. The room was large and clean with a... More

We have been notified that the Sea Gull Inn is closing at the end of August. It will be razed along with the Dairy Queen and motel next door. We have been going to the Sea Gull Inn for over 10 years each year during the two art shows held on the boardwalk and will sorely miss it and Mr.... More

Very , VERY clean!! Nice rooms! Pleasant staff, clean pool area, right on the beach, I love this place. The only thing I don't like is not enough parking space. The other parking lot is a block in half away, in a dark alley. Other than that I would recommend the Sea Gull.
