Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 207 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable and clean nicely remodeled....comfortable beds and bedding, clean rooms, attractive common areas. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Senior quality associate Staff was the most notable of the visit in that they were very friendly and took extra effort to ensure everything was ok. The room was very cold but was able to turn off the air conditioner. The small refrigerator in the room was very loud and inefficient in that it was running all through the night which kept me awake. The 2nd night I just turned the refrigerator off. September 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a good place to stay Had no problems with my stay. Room upon entering was very comfortable temperature wise. Was greeted by staff in timely manner at breakfast and any questions I had were answered. All staff was friendly and greeted me in such, anytime I reentered the hotel. September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Night Sleep Everything has been updated. Everything looks new and clean. Staff was great. Sleep was restful. September 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NICE, CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE The staff was professional, nice and made sure we were fine , we needed to have a crib the staff made sure we got it right away. the room was clean. comfortale beds.. No problem will come back to stay. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Almost perfect My only "not perfect" comment is that the sink did not drain fast enough when running water for more than a minute or so. I hope this is the worst problem I ever have at any hotel. All about this hotel was supurb starting with the really terriffic greeting I got as I entered to the farewell as I walked out the door two days later. September 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly Service From the moment I walked in the door your staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was clean and bright. The room was comfortable and quiet. I will definitley recommend this location to my business associates. September 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Staff The sofa sleeper was terrible - was like sleeping on springs. The staff brought a mattress pad cover which helped a little. The master bathroom had a toilet that leaked. Everything else was good with the visit. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I would stay again. I would make sure that if I had a sleeper sofa, I would make sure it had enough padding for a comfortable night's sleep! September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Visit Wilmington first time visit to Wilmington, chose a winner in the Holiday inn Wilmington- Market St.. Accommodations outstanding and staff is great. Minutes from everything Wilmington has to offer. Stay at Holiday Inn - Market St. you won't be sorry. August 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel, bad parking The hotel itself was fine, but property does not seem to have enough parking to handle situations where they are booked to capacity. To make the situation worse, a majority of parking spaces were being taken by the trucks and equipment from a road-paving crew who was staying at the hotel. Rather than making the road crew park the equipment offsite, the hotel was referring quests to park in the lot of a nearby community college and "hoof it" back to the hotel. It was a solution, but not a good one. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by College Move In reservations worked well with us to secure a room for a very busy weekend; personnel at hotel very friendly. Good overall experience. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 weekend visit Comfortable bed, didn't care for the pillows. All staff was very pleasant. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely Property near the Beaches & Downtown My first visit to Wilmington and I am here on business. Booked my stay at Holiday Inn and as soon as you step the door, you will see the difference! Everything is nice, new and very well maintained. All the staff seems to go out of their way to make you welcome. Did breakfast a couple of mornings in their full service restaurant and omelets are nicely done. Made reservations for my next visit before leaving the property! August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great food, staff friendly I enjoy my stays at this particular Holiday Inn. The food is great and the staff is very friendly. August 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Better choices in Wilmington are available. This is the second time I have stayed at this property. The first was during renovations and just terrible! Noisey, messy, unpleasant staff and mass confusion everywhere. However, I gave them the benefit of the doubt and decided to try again, now that the renovation is complete. The only change is the facilities were cleaner and attractive and the noise and mess have subsided. But, the staff is still awful....when I checked in with a business associate (two rooms and we are both Platinum Elite members), the young lady was perturbed that I had made the reservation online, at IHG's website instead of calling the hotel directly. She actually got into an argument with another front desk individual on how to check us in. There are many other choices for accommodations in the Wilmington area. Consider any of them before this hotel. As for me, two strikes and they're out! August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location and Clean I recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Wilmington for business. It is centrally located to all your business and pleasure needs. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A time to relax Great service from the staff, especially Larry and Brandon, who helped with accommodations and recommendations for food and things to do in the area. The hotel was close to both the beaches and the river front which is exactly what we were looking for on our vacation. August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location and Friendly Staff This location is excellent for business and leisure with its proximity to all major roadways in the Wilmington Area. Just a min to the University; seconds to major shopping and restaurants and a few minutes to downtown and the beaches August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent staff, excellent room We were very happy with our stay at this hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful with our needs. And the best of all there was no cigarette smell any were. Also the cleanliness was very good. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great updated hotel Beautiful lobby and rooms. Hotel staff friendly. Not the best area, but hotel was great. August 20, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Staff The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet and cool, but the staff were not friendly or helpful. The overall value for our stay was very over priced for what we got. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff was tops Very nice facilities. Staff was super. The General Mgr. found my briefcase outside with a laptop and tablet inside. He attempted to call me immediately and kept it in safekeeping until I could return to pick it up. Saved me big time! August 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UNCW Move In Weekend This was move in weekend in Wilmington. Most hotels were booked however we were able to obtain a room at your hotel. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The property was clean and our room was very nice. We will stay here again! August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay, highly recommend This is great place to stay, rooms are in excellent shape, quiet and peaceful hotel with easy access to UNCW. August 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Bed and Pillows Our family enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was great with lots of choices. The beds and pillows were very comfortable except for the rollaway bed. The swimming pool and hot tub were very nice and clean. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great place to sty was looking for a last minute place to stay. the amenities were great and the staff was exceptional. was clean and up to date also. August 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This property is NOT reccomened Hotel staff was not welcoming or helpful at checkin. We have been a Priority Club member for many years; staff never once acknowledged the membership and in fact refused to provide a bottle of water at request so my son could take his medicne. We did not receive any membership priviledges. No newpaper, no express checkout, not even a bill under the door in the morning. This property appears to be under very poor management. We will be staying in Wilmington on numerous future occasions while out son is in the hospital there but we will not stay at this property again. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice property This is a good property. It looks good, it is clean and the staff is friendly for the most part. I did not care for the bartender named Josh. He was not very friendly. Too stiff -should be an accountant not interacting with the public. Food was good but menu is somewhat limited. My room was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner did rattle a bit but otherwise things were good. I had a good stay. August 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable and Good Value The staff is friendly, the room was updated and clean. There was sufficient parking and it was close to many dining options. You even get a free drink at the hotel bar each day you stay there. It is a great value, especially during the summer/vacation season. August 12, 2014
