This old condo complex has a great location in Ocean Shores. It is in good position but not really what I would call oceanview because of the large berm. There are balconies- most only big enough for 2 chairs and a very small table. The staff, with the exception of a grumpy few, work hard to keep this old complex... More

We are from Texas and loved the cool weather in Ocean Shores. The Grey Gull made our stay even better with a fantastic view of the ocean from the 3rd floor (room 304). Each room is individually decorated and the full-size kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. We loved the pool, hot-tub and cooking out at the picnic area. The... More

We have never had a bad experience at the Grey Gull. We plan on going back again very soon. It's so relaxing and just a short walk thru the dunes to the beach. We've gone there in good weather and bad. It's always been fabulous.

This was a nice hotel. We had a 2 bedroom condo - nice rooms and plenty of space as well as a stocked kitchen (except for the food). The beach is about a 5 minute walk down a wooded path. You can't see the ocean from the 2nd floor, not sure about the 3rd floor. clean.

We celebrated my husband's birthday by spending one night at the Grey Gull. We stayed in unit 314, which had an amazing view of the ocean and mountains. We immediately realized we should have spent more than one night. Our room was a one-bedroom condo with all the amenities of home. We are already making plans to return for a... More

Not only as a 40-year international business traveler, but as one in the middle of a 10,000 mile tour of the U.S., I found this motel to be very under-rated, both in value and experience. On this trip, we've stayed mostly in 3-star motels, with the occasional 2-star when we lacked choice; we picked the Grey Gull on that basis... More

We wanted a place on the beach where we could have our dog and this was perfect. All facilities worked fine, staff was friendly. Decor a little dated, and internet slow, but for price was a good deal. Very clean.

The Grey Gull is an older resort but we found it clean and well-maintained. We had 3 adults and 2 kids and stayed in a corner ground floor unit, Room 112. The units are privately owned, so we were told all are furnished differently. Ours had a living room, dining area, large fully-equipped kitchen, 1 bathroom, and a separate bedroom... More

I can't wait to go back! First I have to say that I love that this is not a chain place to stay. It's a small privately owned Inn that has rooms for rent and also owners onsite in their own individually owned units which must be why it is maintained so well. If you're looking for a room on... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Grey Gull. This hotel to me acts as a safeguard against the temperamental weather at Ocean Shores. We had a mixture of brilliant sun and cold wind/ fog during our stay. When the sun was out, we went to the beach that was easily accessed by a trail system at the back of... More
