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...

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...

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We know parking is a little snug under the hotel. We have another parking area for guests just up the street on the corner of Lumina and Salisbury across from Bryant Realty in a gravel parking lot. It accommodates land yachts well, too. Our maid staff is operating as a finely...

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.

The Silver Gull motel is a little hidden gem right beside Johnnie Mercer's Pier in Wrightsville Beach. I try to make it down to the beach a couple times a year and I always stay at another hotel. Well that hotel was booked, so I had to look for somewhere else to stay. I found this motel on Tripadvisor and...

Super friendly and easy reservation and check-in, clean no-frills room, on-site parking space (one per room). Incredible location right next to the fishing pier, fifteen minute walk to the shops and restaurants. Each room has a view of the ocean and a tiny two-chair porch. A/C worked well (a plus in the humid heat). If you're looking for lots of...

We had a great experience over a three day stay at the Silver Gull Motel. Rob and all his staff do a great job. The rooms are spacious, very clean and was recently remodeled. Great view of the ocean and beach from our private balcony. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Silver Gull has just reopened. This is an original Motel from back in the day. Reminded me of traveling with my family to the beach way back when. Stayed in room #309. Ocean View,all rooms have a side view of ocean, and on the south side. I preferred the Greensboro St side over the Pier side. Everything in the...

This was my first time to the coast in North Carolina and I really didn't know what to expect. The hotel is right on the beach. It's kind of no-frills, but they had parking for guests which would have been difficult to find otherwise. You can walk right out onto the beach from one of the entrances/exits. It's about a...
