35th anniversary trip. Stayed here before many times. Why ? Amazing views, friendly staff and spacious rooms with all the comforts of home. Already making plans to come back. Dog friendly which was great.

The room was very spacious and even had a full size kitchen! We loved it and would definitely go back.The hotel was close to everything, so walking around Ocean Shores is easy. We are planning to back with the rest of the family!

It was absolutely amazing! We loved it! The staff was great. The room was great. The view was absolutely gorgeous. If you get a kitchen unit, shop in Aberdeen before you arrive because there local grocery store was awful, but otherwise our trip was amazing and wonderful and We will definitely be back!!!

We recently spent 2 nights in a second floor unit. The property is dated but pretty well maintained. Unit itself was very clean and the bed very comfy. The entrance door and window shades were difficult. Drapes in bedroom would have been better in blocking light.Towels could be thicker and softer. Paper products in bathroom were poor quality. Kleenex was... More

This was our 4th trip to Ocean Shores and we have stayed at different places each time. We decided to try the Grey Gull for the first time and have mixed feelings about it, mostly due to the unit (111) we were in. Pros: Room was clean, well appointed, nice touches throughout although somewhat dated. We liked the fireplace, view... More

We stayed just one night in a second floor room. It was a pet friendly room but did not smell of previous guests or their pets. The king bed was very comfortable, the hide-a-bed couch and recliners were in good condition. Full kitchen, dining table for four and all the required cookware and cutlery. We enjoyed the gas fireplace and... More

Thank you very much for your detailed commentary! All of us here were heartbroken by the Super Bowl, too! We work very diligently to keep our hotel in good condition despite its age, and I am pleased that you noticed. Our owners have acknowledged that some of them need to update their decor, so we should see some additional improvements... More

I had just retired after fifty plus years on the job and the wife and I decided to get a way for a couple of days. While shopping for a place on the coast I was overwhelmed by the enthusiastic professionalism of the receptionist who handled my call and I immediately made reservations with Grey Gull. Upon arrival we were... More

We stayed one night, third floor. Weather was not good so instead of walking the beach we turned on the fireplace, sat back and watched the waves. Our room was clean, the view excellent, bed was soooooo comfortable and the complex was quiet. We had our small dogs with us and they were pleased with the accommodations also.

Thank you for staying with us! The third floor (and second floor) offers great views for our rainy and stormy days. I'm so pleased that the weather did not prevent you from having a nice time at The Grey Gull. I hope that you will come see us again this summer to get that beach walk in! Warm Regards, Darcy...

Thank you for sharing your experience! The third floor rooms do offer the best views, but those first floor rooms are so convenient, especially during the summer when the pool is so popular. I appreciate your comments on the pots and pans. That is something I can inform the owners of so that we can get them updated. We all... More
