The Gull Motel, Inn and Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2011

My sister recommended this place more than 8 years ago. We stay there every summer and can't be happier. The owners are super nice and very helpful. Rooms in the motel and the inn are very clean and comfortable. We usually stay at the motel with a kitchenette and it stocks everything we need. They also have cottages for bigger families and its all just steps from the beach. Just a short walk to pier and a great mini golf course and the beach is great for long walks. There is a pool on the property, gas grills for cooking out, and a clothes line to hang wet beach towels. The owners live on property so everything is attractive and well taken care of and you have the convenience of restaurants and variety stores within a few blocks. We never hesitate to recommend the Gull to family and friends.

Room Tip: if you don't mind climbing stairs you can stay in the upper floor rooms. They all have pine woo...

We just left the Gull and thank god for that motel. We went up last min and have stayed at the Waves(worst motel on the beach) We got there at 10:00 the gentleman let us park with out paying to park (Waves charges 10.00) charge us 160.00 plus tax Waves wanted 200.00 plus tax same size room, they had the nerve to charge my daughter 289.00 for a room over the restarunt directly looking looking at the street, and then charge parking for the for the second car HORRIBLE I was so happy the Gull made our night so easy
wanted to stay a second night but weather was not good so we will be back....The rooms are adorable and never had a problem with hot water. Thanks again....Brenda G

We stayed at the Gull Motel for 2 nights.
The room was clean and the facilities decent.
HOWEVER, there was a misunderstanding on the check-out time (we weren't told the check-out time, and we wrongly assumed it was the same as all the other neighbhoring motels).
The manager (actually, I don't know if he's the owner, a manager or just an employee) was EXEEDINGLY rude to us. I have stayed in many motels/hotels and have never been spoken to in such a manner. Even after our apologies for the misunderstanding, he continued to yell at us. The conflict ruined our last day of vacation.
There are so many fabulous motels in OOB, this is one I would definetly stay away from. And if you do decide to stay here, please note that check-out time is 10 o'clock!! Don't be a minute late, or all hell will break-loose!

On an unrelated side note, the showers do not have a temperature regulator. So, whenever anyone in the motel turns on a faucet or flushes a toilet during your shower, your get scalded. Nice.
