Sea Gull Motel
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Hatteras Island
Reviewed 7 July 2013

We began our stay in Hatteras at another motel, but moved to this one and we were glad that we did. It is old-style, but clean and comfortable! It has good working internet (something our other, more pricey motel had difficulties with). And best of all for my wife who is a beach person, it is right on the beach, just walk out of your room and over the dunes. The price was also very reasonable. When we visit Hatteras again, it will be our first choice for accommodations.

This is a typical old style traveler's motel. It is close to the beach and we found that that was about it. No food, very little amenities and at a price that would get you much more. Our suggestion was to continue south until Hatteras, or find a nice Bed and Breakfast in the area.
By the way, we didn't enjoy the sand on our tile floors.

Room Tip: keep going.....

This mom and pop motel was perfect for us. We stayed in room 108 and it had 2 large beds plus a daybed with a trundle. it slept our family of 5 with room to spare. The linens and towels were dated and a bit worn but the place was spotless. i would certainly book that room again

We stayed here when I was a kid. We took mom back to see it, she as Alzheimer's. she really enjoyed it. My husband is not a beach guy, but even he say it was perfect! Staff treated us like family. Grandbaby and I had a blast going to the beach every morning looking for shells. We are going back next year...

Location, location, location. Stride out the door, over the dune, and onto a lovely long sandy beach. Clean, functional efficiency rooms; spacious with few frills. A/C works but is noisy. Shops, restaurants, sights, and ferry all within short driving distance. Superior to similar motels south of Avon available at the same price.

My family of four recently stayed at the Sea Gull Motel on Hatteras Island. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the access to the beach and swimming in the hotel's nice pool. One evening I inquired how late the pool stayed open and the staff person said 10:00 PM. She said if we wanted to swim later than that, she would be glad to stay past her shift which normally ended at 10:00 PM.
This motel appears to have been recently remodeled and is very reasonably priced. It is a nice place to stay and we hope to come back again.
