Silver Gull was a great place to stay during my beach trip. The access to the beach was a plus with a gift shoppe across from the hotel. The cleanliness was good but could have been better. Overall I was happy with my stay.

Great location! Easy to check in/out. Room was very clean upon arrival. A bit disappointed that daily housekeeping only includes taking out trash and getting new towels. Mattresses could stand to be replaced, they were quite worn. Overall good long weekend!
