Reviewed 18 January 2012

We stayed in the Lookout #1 and it was so comfortable. Jim and Ayla are very accommodating and gave us great recommendations for dinner. Our stay was affordable and breakfast was awesome. We loved the porch, bed, warmth of the room and Sophie the cat! We will definitely be returning!

The sea urchin room was cosy and comfortable. The historic feel, beautiful garden areas, and family friendly vibe make this a perfect home away from home. Breakfast was tasty and colorful. Everybody that works there is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for walking to shops in town as well as many hikes/vista points. As said before, no TV but there are books to borrow in the hallways. Also, the internet connection is not super strong so don't expect to do more than check email or online reservations.

Ayla and Jim were very helpful. They upgraded to the Driftwood room so we could have more space. Breakfasts were great-- plenty of food. Ayla made helpful suggestions about restaurants. Room was quiet and the inn was close to everything we wanted to see in town.

Last time we stayed at the Sea Gull Inn was wonderful, and this time it was even better! We had 3 relaxing days at the Inn to celebrate our anniversary, and our stay was perfect in every way. Jim and Ayla, the owners, were kind, thoughtful, helpful, and extremely friendly, as always. Their beautiful breakfasts are consistently tasty, and lovingly presented. It’s definitely a treat to stay at the charming Sea Gull Inn. Highly recommended! Enjoy.

This was our second stay at the B&B and we love it! It is a great historic house with each room having its own special character! We love the Sand Dollar room with views of the ocean (no tv, but it wasn't missed!!) It was a great place to welcome in the New Year of 2012!
The gardens are beautiful, the breakfasts were delicious, and Ayla and Jim were so welcoming! We can't wait for our next trip there- we will,without a doubt, stay at the Sea Gull Inn!

We felt this B&B was overrated in TripAdvisor. Walls very thin; some rooms tiny. If you are expecting a TV, be sure to request a room that includes one (ours didn't). Our window shade didn't work so we had to safety-pin a blanket over the window in order to have any privacy from nearby neighbors. When I mentioned it upon checkout, the response seemed apathetic. Breakfast service begins at 8:30 (late, we thought) and is brought to the room. We were disappointed at the quality of the meal. On a positive note, the bed was quite comfortable and the inn is conveniently located right in town, with ample on-street parking in front. We will try someplace else next time.

This is our third time here at the Sea Gull Inn. Have enjoyed it each and every time. Thank you Jim and Ayla for wonderful service, delightful and delicious breakfast, clean room, and overall great thoughtfulness. If we had any problems they were more than helpful to solve it. Looking forward to our next visit, hopefully this next year. We were over there for my husbands birthday. Best coffee in town is at the Sea Gull Inn!
