This is a very small hotel on Rte. 1 - only about 15 rooms. I stayed her in early Sept. 2016. I didn't start looking for a room (on line) until late in the day and the vast majority of the hotels in the area were already full. I found this place on-line; they had rooms available; and the room... More

My family booked three rooms to visit my son who attends a nearby boarding school. We had an unexpected challenge that might have jeopardized the visit. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. They were very helpful. I highly recommend the Gull Motel.

This motel provided what my family calls a "utility" service - it filled a need, but no more. The room was clean and pleasant, but had a lot of small, annoying flies. The bathroom was tiny. The air conditioner produced a lot of noise but not a lot of cooling. The room did have a microwave and fridge. We were... More

This "retro" hotel is clean and comfortable. It is easy to see how much care and work the owners invest in this motel. The staff was friendly and helpful and provided good recommendations for local restaurants. This is a great buy and we will be sure to return.

This is the first time I ever stayed at the Gull Motel. It was wonderful. No Frills, classic motel, great price and very, very clean. We have a baby, and the bathroom was so clean I didn't even need to rinse the tub out before giving her a bath. I am very picky with regards to cleanliness, especially at a... More

I have been to the Gull Motel one other time and I was satisfied on my last visit. The price was fair and the amenities were solid. This time I returned and I noticed that all new windows had been put into place and a number of other updates and renovations had been done. it was a solid price once... More

The room was clean and bright. The bath area a bit small by today's standards, but for and area just 20 Miles from Mt Desert you can not beat the value.

We stayed one night in this very clean and friendly motel. A short drive from downtown Belfast and the freeway. Convenient location for anyone traveling along the coast. They are also pet friendly. We had to make a change in our reservation and the staff responded very quickly and helpfully by email. Recommended!

The owners are very friendly, and the rooms are clean and spacious. There is even a microwave and refrigerator. We needed a slightly later departure time, and that was no problem. The only drawback was the road noise. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.
