location good, restaurant not good for prices, bed scratchy, only one pillow, floor hard, pool could be cleanerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Our Second Stay"
This was our second stay at the Sea Gull Inn and was just as enjoyable as the first time. It is in a very convenient location with easy access to the beach, shops and restaurants. Love the sun deck that looks out over the beach and ocean. Staff is pleasant! Enjoyed our breakfast and lunch at the Little Feet's Cafe on the beach side of the hotel. Dairy […] Queen is adjacent to the hotel, YUM! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great time at the Sea Gull Inn"
For an inexpensive hotel, the Sea Gull Inn met all of my expectations. The room was clean, the service was excellent, and we were right on the boardwalk which is what we wanted. Our room had a balcony with a great ocean view. The hotel does not serve a continental breakfast, but there was a great little cafe (Little Feets Cafe), attached to the hotel […] with very reasonable prices and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We saw many hotels on the boardwalk that would have cost much, MUCH more that we paid for our 4 nights in Virginia Beach. We could have paid for one of those rooms and had a whole lot less money to spend on other things like souvenirs, great food, shopping at Lynnhaven Mall, and admission to some super attractions in the area. I would not hesitate to stay at the Sea Gull Inn again. Absolutely wonderful experience that my girls and I will never, ever forget! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In front of beach"
I went for 2 days, had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to park 2 blocks away 3 times during our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not my favorite but okay. Pool and hot tub was nice. Air condition wasn't very cold. Had to park a block away. Loved the breakfast at their restaurant. Dairy Queen next door was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was not cleaned at a reasonably time. And we where disturbed to early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Location, comfortable room, very clean. Did I mention great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything was Ok"
The hotel was just fine. I found it online and almost cancelled my reservation after reading done reviews. Glad I didn't though. It was not upscale but it was ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach, nice sun deck. Air conditioned"
A good place to stay without having to pay the big price of name brand hotels. Down side, most parking is away from motel unless you are lucky enough to get one on site.Genuine Expedia guest review
Waterfront with reasonable restaurant. Shops were within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, remodeled bathroom, good value."
I was skeptical at first since it was one of the lower priced hotels. However, it over exceeded my expectations. Great location, large remodeled clean bathroom, comfortable beds. I certainly would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice local beach hotel"
The Sea Gull is a local small hotel nestled among larger national chains. All rooms had a view of the beach, and the room was clean and comfortable. A great value for the location!Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the beach"
The hotel is right on the beach and you get a view of the beach from your room. The room is very basic but was clean. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, convenient location and unexpectedly quiet"
On overall a good impression.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and well stocked, but outdated. Fridge was nice, but no freezer area (next door had a freezer), tv was small, and room had a "musty" smell (I'm sure due to the humidity). That said, the balcony and sun deck were very nice and the location was amazing. Staff was great too. Parking at overflow wasn't great, but they did allow my kid to […] stand in spot and hold it while I rushed to go get car. I would definitely recommend. Price was right as well.

I would stay whenever i come back to Va beach my family & i love Sea Gull Inn its right on the beach our room was ocean view ... i love the indoor pool & hot-tub my daughter couldn't get out she was so happy it close at 12amGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice place for the price"
Parking is a challenge but other than that the room was clean and I was right on the beach. The restaraunts on the strip in Virginia Beach are rather expensive but this location is close to the action and I could walk just about everywhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect in all ways"
the hotel was great. It was just a small place but it was very clean and within walking distance of dinner, souvenir shopping, etc. We definitely recommend the Sea Gull InnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the third year in a row we have stayed there. Its a great hotel to stay at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"For someone looking for a mediocre experience."
I arrived two hours early, and they were kind enough to give me my room, which was one kind sized bed with an oceanview. When I got in there, there was an oceanview, but it was the big window beside my door. I had to keep the curtains closed because children kept running up and down the hallway and other various guests. Couldn't really enjoy the oceanview […] without giving up my privacy. I felt decieved and cheated because the picture online was completely different than the room I got. Also, there is a sign by the bottom elevator saying that "The Sea Gull Inn does not recommend this 'restaurant.'" I thought it was unprofessional of them to post that sign just because the restaurant across the street competes with theirs. Very tacky if you ask me. Also, there is free parking, but the parking in the hotel lot only has 20 spaces that fill up very quickly, so you are forced to park about a block away. Not too bad unless you have a lot of luggage. But, this lot closes it's gate between 12-6am. Very unsatisfied with this because we were going out that night and definitely weren't planning on being back by then, so parking became a huge issue. Had to park at a convention center over a mile away and walk back. It's good if you're planning on a one night stay with a low budget, but I did not get what I paid for and will not be returning. At least the rooms were clean... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Vacation at the Sea Gull Inn, Virginia Beach, VA"
This is one of the older motels on the beach. The price had a lot to do with our choice. That said It was a nice motel. The rooms were not large but OK for two people. It did have an indoor pool, again not huge but OK. Room was very clean. Parking can be an issue. They do have an overflow lot but it is two blocks away. Located in the middle of the boardwalk, […] we were close to restaurants, shopping, and fun. We walked or took the shuttle bus everywhere we went. It was a great experience for the money. We would not hesitate to go back to the Sea Gull Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach and attractions"
Was great, relaxing, and comfortable. We decided to stay one more night and they accommodated us with the same rooms we had.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room Is nice what you pay for, not the best hotel I have stayed in but comfortable and clean. Located in a good location. The restaurant was quite pricey and I think only had one server for everyone, took over 35 mins to get our breakfast. But overall I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"If you are on a budget.."
I booked online through expedia.com. There were no issues at all with that. When I arrived they gave me my room key and when I left all I had to do was drop it off, since I payed in advance through expedia. I ended up getting a free upgrade to a suite. Not sure how that happened, I guess they over booked. The hotel was WELL air-conditioned. It is an […] older hotel but everything was up to date, very clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff did a wonderful job cleaning our room while we were not in it. It's right on the beach. The pool was smaller but nice. There was only one front desk lady that seemed nice, but I did not need to speak with them much so that did not make a difference to me. Due to the pricing and location of this hotel (in the middle of the boardwalk & ocean front) I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good but not perfect"
I like the idea of a small hotel not to deal with hundreds of people checking in/out but the access to the pool is terrible. The cafeteria staff is the kindest I have ever been served.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Is the glass half full or half empty...."
If you are on your honeymoon, Run. If you want a good indoor pool, forget it. If you want location and views... it's serves immensely. I didn't mind parking a block away. I didn't like the pool had a capacity of 20. I hated that our rooms weren't made until 2pm except for the day that they forgot to come at all. I loved the view of the beach and the […] strip. We could sit out on the patio and talk with the family... that's why we went... to visit our son in the service. So i was very pleased that we had a comfortable area to spend talking with our son. I did show my son the brochure of the hotel, and he said, where is that mom... when I said it is our hotel, he said NO WAY. The person at the reservation desk was Extremely unfriendly. I absolutely loved the location. We were there for family time.. adult children mind you. I strongly recommend picking a hotel on the beach! If you don't care for an indoor pool... stay here. again I say.. if you are looking for a romantic hotel, run. THe ad is very desceptive. I loved my vacation.. but I would have loved a tent to see my son in the military. I also would prefer to stay at this end of the strip. Oh, speaking of noise, the walls are very thin, so if another room is keeping you awake with noise, put on the bathroom fan and push up the ac. THe noise will tune them out. If you stay here.. make sure you get a room that is NOT on the first floor, or your front door will hold fumes to the cars who back in to park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Right on the Beach"
It is right on the beach with the indoor pool/hot tub looking directly at the beach. There was also a nice roof-top deck with plenty of chairs to relax outside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very close as your home"
Perfect! For a price of beach front hotel, so reasonable. The place is clean and people in the office are most welcome to help you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"descent for overnight"
Parking is off lot and no breakfast. Just overnight so no big deal. Pool is small compare to picture otherwise as expected.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy room and very clean"
The Front desk attendant and the cleaning staff seem attentive and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
for us, near enough to every thing we needed.I would recommend this hotel to all my friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was huge! I don't know if it was a special suite or just big because it was on the corner but it was great. The location was wonderful & so was everything else. The only bad thing I can think of was the blow dryer (it was very small & took a long time to dry my hair). I would definitely stay there again & will recommend it to others:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location on the beach"
Excellent stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean but small. There wasn't much room for more than 2 people with 3 people it was crowed and 4 or more you were walking into each other. Nice view of the beach from the room. I would stay again if I'm not taking my kids and have only one bed instead of 2 maybe they have more room to move around. We arrived it was too cold to even walk […] the beach let alone the boardwalk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything, with an amazing cafe onsite"
It was great! Little Feet Cafe is amazingly good! prices are reasonable, you can rent bikes onsite, and it's close to everything. We would go back and stay here again! The owner is so nice and the free coffee is a high quality one! Right on the beach with an indoor pool and hot tub!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not as bad as i expected .."
even though the room setup was a little outdated , it was still clean & cozy to stay in .. loved da shower also .. the restaurant there has great breakfast !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So-so hotel, terrible timing, distant parking"
This was a huge disappointment!. Although the room furnishings were acceptable and fairly clean, the only parking was a couple of blocks away. In addition, this hotel as well as most of the others on the beach were overrun with college students that had apparently just finished classes and felt a need to yell, honk horns and break bottles outside our […] room until 2:30-3:00 in the morning. We were tired and hoping for a good night of sleep. However, the rooms walls were not at all sound-proof, so we could hear the students talking/yelling quite loudly on all sides of our room! In addition, the single elevator was so small you could barely fit on it with the luggage cart and my husband was verbally accosted by students on the elevator. There also only appeared to be one luggage cart and we had to check/wait for nearly 40 minutes just to get it when we were trying to checkout. When we complained to the front desk, they just told us that it was bad-timing for our stay and there was nothing that they could do about it! Since this was by far the most expensive hotel that we stayed at on our trip and it did not even include any type of breakfast like the other hotels, it was a big waste of money! Wished I had just booked one of the much cheaper hotels a little ways away from the beach so that we could have gotten some sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
our stay was okay except for the noise of the guest. Guest where jumping up and down over our heads. Kids next door to us where up all night next to my room. Did not get any sleep at all during Saturday night. Left out at 6 a.m. Sunday a.m.. We where located right above the pool. The parents let the kids do whatever. Yelling and screaming. We use to […] love Va. Beach. We had not been down for 7 or 8 years. Really shocked with some of the things we saw. Instead of Ocean Key Resorts working on the lower half of the beach they need to redo the whole beach hotels all over. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were there for an overnight, fun trip. Disappointed in the staff at the desk bc one was very hard to obtain answers from and another acted like he was being bothered when we asked for more pillows. The thermostat in the room was not working so it was hot all night. Didnt want to " bother" the front desk guy so we let it b. there is not much parking […] so you have to walk 2 blocks over to a strange, shady overflow lot. The pics on the website make the pool area appear nice and large... Its not. Also another room to soffocate in due to the temp settings... We will avoid this one next time we are back in Va beach Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""OK" at best."
Stayed here April 4-7. Rooms were a bit smokey smelling. Needs updating. Old TV's. No real issues...but nothing great. If u are paying under $100 per night...OK...over $100? No way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location on the beach"
The hotel is a little old but was well-maintained. Our room was clean and quiet. The property is right on the beach and has a good little restaurant for breakfast on-site. The parking is limited but there is an off-site overflow lot. I would look to stay at this hotel again if needing a hotel in Virginia Beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"spring break with kids"
We had a great time. Hotel was spotless people very nice convenient to everything. Only problem was weather. Hotel restaurant was really good and very reasonable. Will go back!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Met Our Needs"
The Sea Gull Inn offers a safe/clean room with minimun frills. The rooms are small and offer basic amenities. It is good for stop overs but I would not recommend it for long stays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs a bit of improvement"
Needs more and better toilet paper, without asking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful find"
Upon checking in I noticed how clean everything looked. The lady at the front desk even upgraded us to an Ocean front room. Even the stairwells were clean and everything smelled great. They also had a heated pool and a jacuzzi...we totally enjoyed this placeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty decent place."
Right on the beach, too. Apparently this review has to be at least 50 characters. What else do you want me to say?Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was clean, staff professional and helpful. Located right next to the boardwalk with nice view of ocean & beach. Room & Bath was on the small size but okay for two adults. Overall a good value for the money. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Much less expensive than other hotels for a pretty nice room. They have good access to the ocean, pool, and hot tub. Located across street from a pancake house and the house restaurant was good to. If you go on a busy weekend be prepared to walk a few blocks. There isn't enough parking for all of the rooms so you will have off park offsite. Wake up […] call and alarm clock did not work.
