Sorry I don't know anything about the Sea Gull. But, we stayed in the Avon Motel Friday night and were quite surprised at how it had changed ( for the better) since the last time we stayed there many, many years ago. We are down for a weekly Saturday rental in Hatteras this week, but wanted to come down for the Fish Like a Girl tournament on Saturday morning at the Avon Pier, so we came down and stayed Friday night. I can't speak for the rest of the rooms, but we stayed in Room #10 and it was very clean and "cheap"- $99.00. I believe they updated the rooms after the fire a few years back. Hope this helps you.
