My family has been in the Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach area for over 230 year, coming home to visit isn't always comfortable since mom got a cat and I'm highly allergic to it. So, what a great excuse to check out the Silver Gull after their recent renovation and I am so happy that I did! This wonderful beachfront gem is hidden...

The Silver Gull is located right next to the Johnny Mercer Pier. It has great protected parking. At check in, Shelly was so happy and helpful. We were fortunate to get a third floor room. It was well appointed and clean. The balcony view and the view from the bed are lovely. The Silver Gull could use some updating but...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Silver Gull. I had spoken to Rob on the phone and found him to be very pleasant and extremely helpful. All that he had to say about the motel and the location was accurate! We stayed in a beautiful, remodeled room on the third floor, with a spectacular view!! The room had a...

There has been significant upgrades to the rooms from new flat screen tv's to the bathroom. I was impressed with the improvements! The motel is right on the beach and beside Johnnie Mercer pier. I will stay there again in the future!

Thank you so much for your review. The Silver Gull Motel owners and staff have put a lot of time and money into the complete renovations that took place over several months at the beginning of this year. We hope you'll come down and see us again soon.

We had an amazing time when we spent the weekend at the Silver Gull in August! The staff at the front desk was friendly, had great restaurant suggestions and was more than helpful! The rooms were clean and sheets and towels were replaced even when we were only staying 2 nights! We plan on making this trip a family tradition...

It's always a treat for us to stay in a place that isn't one of those corporate conglomerate cookie cutter hotels. Loved the 60's Mid Century Modern style architecture and staying right on the beach. This place is great and a good value for the price.

Having never been to Wrightsville Beach, online, I checked out a couple hotels on the beach and found the Silver Gull Motel. After talking with Shelly for 30 seconds I knew we found the right place! Booked it immediately and was even more pleased once we arrived. It is exactly what you want in a hotel room - clean, clean,...

My boyfriend and I came down to Wrightsville Beach for the first time to spend time with his mom and stepdad who were visiting from New York for the first time as well. They are looking for possible places to retire. They stayed at the Blockade Runner, we could not afford that resort so we got a great deal at...
