We stayed at this place thanks to a Groupon. We have stayed in at least other 4 places in Ocean Shores and The Gray Gull is our favorite now. From the moment we walked in, the staff were super friendly, gave us our keys quickly and just made us feel welcome. Our room was very clean and we had everything...

Thank you very much! One of the best things about utilizing Groupon is that it gives us an opportunity to introduce The Grey Gull to travelers who may not have known about us at a very economical price. We are sure that once guests have experienced what we have to offer, they will return to us in the future. I'm...

Stayed three days on third floor. It was a suite with a separate bedroom. Right on the beach with easy access. Fully appointed kitchen, gas fireplace. Sofa, "big comfy chair", dining table and chairs. Great cozy place at ocean shores.

The resort is always a pleasure to stay at. The penthouse is gorgeous and accommodating, and my family loves the total experience. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and the hotel is in the middle of the town with businesses easy to get to. We usually stay here as a mid-winter holiday as a reason to to get away...

Reviewed 18 January 2017

this place is rated as #1 for ocean shores and it holds true in our mind. It is an older place but not even close to being run down, probably because most places are privately owned condos and rented back to the facility to earn extra money. The layout is unique in the way all units have potential ocean view...

The Gray Gull offers comfortable accommodations at very reasonable prices just off the beach. Located on Ocean Shores Blvd. It is one of the few establishments which happily accepts pets including our three large dogs. When we stay there we rent a one bedroom condo on the first floor. It offers a king size bed, sleeper sofa in the well...

I've never stayed here before and it was a nice surprise that our room was large, comfortable & very clean. Also being at the ocean when it is typically really cold our room was warm! I just wish we actually had time to enjoy our room.

We booked the 3rd floor of the Grey Gull, so overlooked the beach, ocean and coastal sea areas. This is the 3-4th time, we have booked here and it is a delightful spot to walk the beaches, see the gulls, starfish and the waves. Totally relaxing and yes, it is dog friendly!

Everything about the Grey Gull was worth the trip and the stay. The front desk personnel (Tracy) were very accommodating and the room attendants went out of their way to be helpful. The hide-a-bed in the LR was awesome, unlike most. Had a great time and will return.

This is condominiums, but set up like a motel. We were put in a "handicap accessible" suite on the second floor. Not very accessible to get to, but had an accessible shower which was nice. Had a nice view of the ocean, but the windows were filthy. Carpets were dirty, in dire need of a shampoo. Our problem was with...
