Very clean room and well equipped for a few days away. Extremely convenient and easy to find. Could walk for a nice dinner. I had a conference in tow on Thursday, and my spouse fished off the pier for two days and loved it.

Nice Place! Helpful Staff! Perfect Location! They even sent us our swimming suits to us when we left them behind in our room. EXTRA NICE! Parking is great because it is out of the sun, but know only one car per family. There is also a private deck from the hotel to the beach. Very cool. I would recommend this... More

The Silver Gull Motel has such a great location, right on Wrightsville beach. There is a boardwalk directly from the 2nd floor of the motel out to the beach which is really convenient. The room size was very generous. We had the full-size room and it was exactly like the photos on Silver Gull's website (sometimes photos can be deceiving,... More

25 years and still going to The Silver Gull Motel. The hotel looks understated, but the room is great, roomy, and includes a kitchenette. Every room has a balcony with a beach view! There is a lifeguard tower right next to the hotel. The fishing pier and grill are next store also.

So we stayed here for Saturday and Sunday night attending a wedding. The Hampton Inn was booked, so we looked around and found this little gem. Not only is the price better, it's right in the middle in a prime location on Wrightsville beach; Johnny Mercer's pier is right next-door. We walked right down our corridor to the outside deck...

On each floor there is a washer & dryer- bring quarters - $1 for washer 50 cents for the dryer - bring your own detergent. This convenience was great if you have kids and we used it last time we were there. We have used this hotel for several years and I know they were remodeling last Summer. This Summer... More

Our room was great! Felt, looked and smelled very clean. Everything was freshly decorated. Hanging hooks in the bathroom would have been useful. Kitchen was "efficiency," perfectly fine for sandwiches and snacks and had full sized fridge and 2 burner cooktop and microwave. The beach in this area was clean and beautiful. The weekend was extremely crowded. The weekdays were... More

Loved the location and view from the room & "L" shaped balcony (ocean front rooms only), small kitchenettes and beneath building parking. It's location is very convenient to great restaurants and the attractions of the greater Wilmington area. This is not a "pretentious" venue, but very clean, comfortable and updated rooms. They motel provided great customer service. We've already booked... More

Seeking a beach weekend we looked high and low for availability on the Carolina coast. High prices, lack of availability, or a requirement for multiple nights brought us to Silver Gull. We were pleasantly surprised, given we usually stay at the larger properties! We reserved a Beachfront King suite that had a separate sitting room. It was beyond what we... More

Family and I stayed there for a weekend and it was great. Clean, nicely furnished, right on the beach and had parking (which is key for Wrightsville Beach). The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Had no problems and no complaints, other than not being able to stay for a week. It was really the perfect beach motel.
