We rented two rooms at the grey gull for our family vacation through Groupon. What a great deal! The staff was super accomodating and got us two rooms side by side, one of which was pet friendly for our golden retriever, Rosco. We loved our time here, the staff is super friendly and helpful and the location is awesome and... More

We stayed in 306, a one bedroom deluxe, which felt roomy and comfortable. I wanted a view of the ocean. I got it, and loved it. :) It was a rainy stay, but we still enjoyed ourselves. Loved watching the kids in the pool, and appreciated that the pool shut down promptly at 10PM. The bedroom had great shades, so... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! Unit #306 is a great room. Our second floor rooms do offer a partial ocean view. You just cannot see where the surf meets the sand, and our poolside units on the first floor are really convenient for families. The patios lead right out to the pool and... More

My parents have been going to the Grey Gull for years and we have been with them on a few occasions. They love it but even they said that this time it just seems like things have gone down hill a bit. The room was clean, but housekeeping seemed to be slipping (we were left short on towels, tp, and... More

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.
