We loved the view and close proximity to ocean. The front desk staff was delightful and we can't wait to return.

This place has an amazing location with several great restaurants and places to walk to nearby. Be prepared for lots of people at the nearby beach.

We lost an item in the hotel room which they promptly found it and mailed it within 2 days to us. Excellent customer service we would recommend this hotel to anyone that values their personal items and a hotel that values them as their own!

The location is fabulous! Right on the beach. The view from the balcony is wonderful. It was great to have the kitchen. Our room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Silver Gull. I would love to stay there again.

Great location, covered parking and a great price

Steps to the beach, beautiful views, covered parking and a great price. The noise level/insulation room-to-room wasn’t great, but wasn’t a huge issue. I would definitely book again

A great place to stay in Wrightsville Beach

After having a bad experience with another booking site, I was apprehensive about booking another hotel online. I am glad that I gave it another try. Silver Gull is a great place. The pictures are accurate, rooms updated, rooms are spacious, facilities updated/continuing to be updated, staff was great, excellent views, right on the beach, hotel has a deck leading to the beach, close to restaurants and other activities, ample parking. We definitely plan on returning here for future trips to Wrightsville Beach. Booking through Travelocity.com was quick and easy.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Pros: Full fridge and microwave.
Cons: Mattresses were a little uncomfortable
Location: Next to pier and beach, close to restaurants
This is more like a motel - no swimming pool, gym, restaurant but just the basics. Clean and right next to the beach. Few rooms have full ocean view but most have a partial ocean view. Right next to the pier and parking. Walking distance to most restaurants.

Decent place to stay for a couple days.

Pros: Beachfront
Cons: I think the place is so old that it could not be improved much, the price just needs to be a little lower to reflect this. Supply and demand I guess!
Location: The only couple restaurants on the island are a 10 block walk. plan on driving for meals.
The room was clean and spacious but a little worn looking. During the daytime it was a little loud with kids and a party on the top floor woke me up at 2:30 am till someone finally shut them up around 3:00. Front desk staff was very friendly. You could make a very basic meal in the kitchenette but don't plan on anything fancy,
