We had a great view from the Ya Ya room. Access to a spacious deck contributed to a very nice stay. Easy beach access and easy to find as well as head out to other locations. The covered parking was also a nice feature.

Love this place so much. I needed a couple of quiet days on the beach, and Silver Gull was perfect. It's an old-school beach hotel, in the best way possible. The folks behind the desk are super nice and helpful. The location cannot be beat, and the view from an ocean front room is spectacular. The kitchen is so nice...

After coming to Wrightsville Beach for 25 years to visit my children, we found that we had no place to stay this year. My son suggested the Silver Gull Motel as it was down the street from his home. We found the motel clean, comfortable, and the management very friendly. We stayed on our trip down and then came back...

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...
