About Us

The Sea Gull Motel was the first motel to operate in Cayucos in the 1930’s, and its classic style remains to this day. The Sea Gull changed hands from one Cayucos family to another in 2022, and renovations were performed to bring new life to this classic spot. Our family is pleased to to welcome yours into our charming beachside getaway!
