Owner was very nice and helpful when we arrived, gave us all the info required, The room was quite spacious, although the bathroom was on the small side. The motel was easy to find on the main road, that said, it was not noisy. Parking right outside the room . If passing worth a stay

This is a small, clean motel with friendly people. We always use this motel when we go to the Common Ground Fair in Unity. Not at all fancy, but clean and quiet. Close to the ocean and good places to eat.

This is a very small hotel on Rte. 1 - only about 15 rooms. I stayed her in early Sept. 2016. I didn't start looking for a room (on line) until late in the day and the vast majority of the hotels in the area were already full. I found this place on-line; they had rooms available; and the room...

My family booked three rooms to visit my son who attends a nearby boarding school. We had an unexpected challenge that might have jeopardized the visit. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. They were very helpful. I highly recommend the Gull Motel.

This motel provided what my family calls a "utility" service - it filled a need, but no more. The room was clean and pleasant, but had a lot of small, annoying flies. The bathroom was tiny. The air conditioner produced a lot of noise but not a lot of cooling. The room did have a microwave and fridge. We were...

This "retro" hotel is clean and comfortable. It is easy to see how much care and work the owners invest in this motel. The staff was friendly and helpful and provided good recommendations for local restaurants. This is a great buy and we will be sure to return.

This is the first time I ever stayed at the Gull Motel. It was wonderful. No Frills, classic motel, great price and very, very clean. We have a baby, and the bathroom was so clean I didn't even need to rinse the tub out before giving her a bath. I am very picky with regards to cleanliness, especially at a...

I have been to the Gull Motel one other time and I was satisfied on my last visit. The price was fair and the amenities were solid.

The room was clean and bright. The bath area a bit small by today's standards, but for and area just 20 Miles from Mt Desert you can not beat the value. I was lease to learn that they are open all year round. With newly installed heat and a backup generator, for those times that the power fails ( a...
