“Seagull Beach Front Motel - Great View - Restful Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2010

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Seagull Beach Front Motel in June of 2010. We stayed two days and having beach front access within a very short walking distance was really a plus for us and our 12 year old son.

We found plenty of great places to dine as well as really enjoyed nearby attractions. Our motel room was very affordable,simple, clean and included a kitchen which helped us stretch our budget by having a couple meals in our room. The view was fantastic and the weather was sunny and warm when we visited. The people running the motel were very friendly and helpful.

I found this Motel just over 20 years ago and fell in love. I just celebrated my 100th night in the same room. The staff are beyond polite and courteous. My room has always been clean and never has any trace of foul odors. The View from the rooms are amazing and easy access to the beach is a nice plus too. I have pretty high expectations when I travel and these people always deliver greatness!

Arrived here thinking it would be great to stay on a beachfront room on our last day before heading back to our home on the Washington Coast. The room was so hot and stuffy we had to open the windows, which have no screens, to get air in. The only problem is that the beach is right below the windows and it was packed with people even up until 2 in the morning so we had to smell cigarette smoke from other patrons standing outside on the patios, listen to loud booming music and the crackle of bonfires at 1 in the morning, people yelling and hooting at 1 in the morning, and yet if we closed the windows the room would get so stuffy and hot the kids couldn't sleep and I couldn't breathe. The bathroom is small and cramped and the shower drain was clogged up and the water took 3 hours to go down before the next person could use it. The LCD tv is a miniature set attached high up on the wall where you can't watch it well without getting a neck ache. There was a coffee maker but no coffee-making supplies like at other hotels. There is no internet at this hotel and good luck getting even a weak Verizon signal to use your smartphone as a modem. For the $100 we paid it just wasn't worth it, going camping would have been better.

One word for this hotel....terrible.

We rented the cottage, that had its own separate spa, and deck. When we saw the total amount for the stay we thought it would be impressive.

When we got in the room, we found a cigarette floating in the toilet, the microwave had chunks of food still in it, there was hair in the drawer with the silverware, and to top it off, there were ants in the room all over the counters.

The staff is not there 24/7, so you have to save any complaints for when they get there.

The daughter of the owner was very helpful and did her best to make sure we were happy. She did give us a $50 refund, which should have been WAY more, since the amount that they charged us for the room was outrageous.

Overall, very disappointed, will never stay here again. It is an outrageous amount they charge for the rooms, and they are not that great.

What is wrong with these people on here that are leaving such horrible comments? We have been to this place numerous times, at least once a year for the last 9 years. We will continue to go back as it is the only place that does not frown on 2 adults and 4 children, ages 10 and younger, being in the same room. (The Sea Gypsey, just down the road from the Sea Gull, expected us to put our 5 yr old daughter and 10 yr old son in an adjoining room, alone. I think not!)

We have never arrived to find a dirty room. If you are that nit picky, stay home. If you find a little mold along the window sill, that is to be expected. You are at the beach, which means there will be moisture in the room. You turn the heat on in the evening and Voila! you get a present over time. If you don't want to look at what you might find, take some disposable cleaning wipes with you and wipe it all down.

There are ample towels in the room. Yes they are motel towels..... so what. Bring your own if you expect thick and cushy. By the way, they do not provide shampoo or conditioner, either. Not a big deal for us as we always bring our own, anyways.

The room that we get has 2 queen beds in the main area, a dining table and chairs, microwave, small refridge, TV with DVD/CD/Cable, small coffee pot, a seperate room with a full bed, closet and dresser. Our children love it because they can open the windows and climb onto the walkway to look at the surf. It has an absolutely breathtaking view.

Beach access is a little tricky because the road/stairs that you travel to get to the beach are at a steep incline. However, we walk slower because of the kiddos so it's not that big of a deal to us.

Someone complained of sand or dirt on the floors..... Hello?!?!?! When you stay at the beach, you are going to encounter dirt and sand. Don't want to look at the mess? Bring an old shower curtain with you. Take your shoes off at the door, put them on the shower curtain and walk in barefoot.

We have never been bothered by "neighbors", even being by the ice/pop/snack machines, we have never heard anything outside of our own space.

Bottom line is........ We get a motel room for one reason...... to sleep in and freshen up the next morning. If you want the Hilton, stay at the Hilton. I have stayed in one and hated it. I would prefer to support a smaller business that is happy to see us return. And guess what? We will continue to visit this place as long as they have our room available! I just got off the phone with the motel and we are planning on going tonight! Going to have a wonderful weekend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a family ran motel. The seagull motel has been in our family for 32 years. It's an older motel but very well remodoled and maintained. This three story, 25 room motel has beautiful veiws. It sits on a 100 foot cliff over looking the ocean. But there's not just the beautiful veiws. You can't find a better location then this. We are right next to the only beach drive down in Licoln City. That's right, if you don't feel like walking just jump in your car and enjoy the beach from your front seat. For the people who want to walk there's a very easy set of lighted sair's. We are less then a mile away from the casino and tanger outlet mall. Just too blocks away from lots of reastruants, bars, gift shops, you name it. Also we love and accept pets any size old and young. We now have FREE WI-FI, a huge deck over looking the beach, lighted serf, private spa's, and great LOW prices! So come down to the beach and check out The Seagull Motel. Right off of 15th street on HWY 101, in Lincoln City, Oregon. Our family would love to get you into a cozy room on the beach. ... more   less
