“Victorian Clutter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

If you want seclusion and quiet, this is great. The outside hot tub was
lovely but a tad tricky to get into.

It seemed like every surface in room #2 was covered with something, from
the side tables to the walls. Even the mirrors had mirrors on them. I
had to clear stuff away just to sit down.

The kitchen appliances are full sized and fairly new and worked well.
The cupboards didn't contain any microwave safe dishes in it. No soup
for you!

The wi-fi was nearly useless with next to no bandwidth. The signal was
strong as the hotel transmitter was actually in the same room. I had
four different wi-fi devices and they all reported the same useless
speed.

There was no AT&T cell signal anywhere in town. Some providers may work
there. You should leave your phone at home when you go to the beach
anyway.

The hotel is a stone's throw from a walking path to the beach or a block
to a drive-down access road.

The rooms were clean and bathroom had plenty of towels. You can sit on
the couch and see the ocean or at the dining table and see the ocean in
the big mirror.

The two beds are in one room leaving you no place to put suitcases. The
'extra' queen-sized bed is inflatable and would take up the whole living
area once you move furniture around.

It was 'okay' but not what I like.

fyi - Room #2 is the big image on this website

This customer complained about our network's WiFi speed. We showed her that our personal computer was wireless and the speed test revealed 946 download and 372 upload speed. She then suggested that I was not telling her the truth about our computer being wireless, so I proved it to her. I asked her to log on to our neighbors WiFi, and she had the same problem.

Next, I tested the speed next to her suite with an iPod, and it was fine. We called our internet provider's tech line explained the situation and they said the problem was hers, not ours. I then tried to satisfy this customer by offering a refund but she declined. No one else has complained about our free WiFi connection speed.

The customer was mistaken about microwave safe dishes not being available, and the suite's layout and amenities are accurately and clearly posted on our web page.

The Gull Wing was the perfect spot for our book club weekend getaway. The location is ideal, within steps of the beach. Our suite accommodated us all well. It was very comfortable with an impeccable attention to detail and cleanliness. We had everything we needed for a fun & relaxing weekend, including a few treasures from the Antique Shop! Carla & John were great hosts & I look forward to staying at the Gull Wing again!

Room Tip: We got a tour of the three rooms. I rec'md the large suite (just right for 5-6 gals) or the more...

My wife and i stayed there three times - i knew them when they klived in Seaattle, John is a crafts man at what he does and his wife at what she does the two working together on the inn insure the stay is nice, the beaches are awesome, non of the ocean shores noise or congestion and the inn is 27 miles north (big deal) -about 3 miles south of Moclips is a restaurant that is EXCELLENT - $$ worth it for any meal 4-5 star at least.

Yep John and the "boss" try hard to improve the facilities and to insure your stay is memorable (ask him about the time he put my Porsche engine into his Ghia...hee hee)

See you there -Rollo

Room Tip: ANY of them some are larger - all are fitted with a fridge, stove oven, sink etc so you can whip up...

We had little planning for our impromptu getaway this weekend. I emailed the Gull Wing Inn to check on availability and we checked in that very evening. Since we were running late, John and Carla (the gracious owners) waited up for us. The suite decor is very nostalgic and original, very clean and tidy and had absolutely everything we needed and more. Aside from the suite itself, I cannot express to you how wonderful the owners are! Fantastic, low key people and that's just what we like. Wish we could have spent more time on the beach but due to the less than favorable weather we spent much of the time indoors playing Scrabble (1948 edition, love the board!) as well as cards and puzzles. Taking time to look at all of the wonderful pieces in the suite was a highlight as well. All made for a great rainy weekend at Moclips. I can't wait to go back! Thank you John and Carla for your hospitality! If you go- check out Carla's antique shop as well!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with family or multiple people, suite #3 has the most space.

I really can't say enough good things about the Gull Wing Inn. The rooms were comfortable, cozy, and spotless. And quirky and artistic (the best!). You are super close to the beach. The place feels like a home rather than a hotel. Moclips was an excellent get-away spot where you can unwind without having to be around tons of other people. Also, John and Carla are great, and you can tell that they really care about their inn.

And I'll second everybody's comments - the hot tub was sooo nice!
If you are going to Moclips, this is the place to stay.

Just spent 4 of the most awesome days in Moclips Wa at the Gull Wing Inn. If you're looking for a place to get away from the fast pace, crowded streets and traffic noise, this is the place to go. If you enjoy traveling with your pets and want a warm reception, this is the place to go!!. My Husband, college student, border collie mix and I had a great time playing on the beach, in the water, collecting shells, rocks and pictures with little to no people anywhere to be seen. The beach is wonderful for long walks, I could hear and see the ocean from my living room and the beds were the most comfortable i've had away from home. I could go on forever. The hospitality was unbeatable and we can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: all 3 suites are great, #3 best view

We have had a "Girls Only" vacation here twice now and each time we have stayed here has been absolutely wonderful! The owners are incredibly nice people, the location is superb, the rooms are wonderfully decorated in quaint "shabby chic" comfort, and the prices are unmatched! Oh, and we LOVE the hot tub, too!
