Don't be fooled by outside if Gray Gull. The units are each owned and decorated by owners. This serves to give them a flavor not found in corporate hotels. We have been coming to the Gray Gull for many years and have been happy with our experience each time.

Thank you for commenting on our hotel! Yes, we are an oldie, but a goodie, I think! We are working on the exterior appearance. Unfortunately, these types of things take time, but it's going to happen! I really appreciate you taking the time to share on TripAdvisor. Please come see us again!

We stayed on the lower level next to the pool. It was mid November and the pool and hot tub were still being used.. a nice plus. The room was great with the exception of the front door's security lock would not work and the sliding glass door's security bar was missing. The room had a full kitchen with every... More

Thank you very much for staying with us! And, thank you for bringing the issues of the locks to our attention. Obviously, this is a security matter and will be addressed immediately. I am sure that you informed our front desk team about the problem, and I will follow up to ensure it has been corrected. I greatly appreciate the... More

Very big, very clean, well thought about room. Everything is dated, but well taken care of. Gas fireplace, comfy bed. Glad we got this groupon deal. Staff was on a slower pace but very friendly.

We stayed in room 203. Room has a fully equipped kitchen, balcony and view of the ocean and pool. Our room was clean, nicely appointed and cozy. We booked our room using Groupon. Checking in was seamless and we felt right at home as it rained outside. We loved hearing the sound of the waves and strolling through the dunes... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at The Grey Gull! We greatly appreciate the kudos! Thank you, too, for the feedback regarding the exterior lighting. Those lights must remain on for security purposes, but I will certainly look into better light filtering or blackout shades for the bedrooms. I hope that you will come... More

We got a one bedroom condo in this hotel. Location is right in town, you can walk to different restaurants, you can walk right onto the beach.

I have spent a lot of time resting and relaxing in Ocean Shores, especially in the fall and winter. The Grey Gull offers a well-equipped kitchen, clean rooms and friendly staff. Add that to the beauty of the ocean and the dunes viewed from my third floor room and you will have a delightful trip. I stayed with my sisters... More

We were planning on staying at a condo in Ocean Shores for two nights, and since we were driving at least four hours to get there, we wanted to extend our stay.

Thank you so much! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed our hotel! Not all of the rooms have Murphy beds, so if that is a desired feature, it's best to look for that specifically or call the hotel to inquire. Fall is a great time to be here with us! We have really lucked out with the weather lately, but... More
