Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 161 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time to Wilmington My family and I had a great stay. The hotel is centrally located to downtown and several beaches. There is a lot to do in the area. The staff and hotel were wonderful. Only thing I would improved is the daily variety of breakfast. After a few days, we got tired of the same choices. But other than that it was very nice and clean. July 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pros: Great Service. Cons: Hotel was Full due to Busy Season but Seemed Unprepared. On the positive side, the hotel employees were extremely friendly and responsive, and provided great service. The breakfast & the dining area was excellent despite the crowd. There is a Wal-Mart behind the hotel that you can walk to. I provided a 4-Star rating so I would not hesitate to make a return visit to the hotel despite the issues I outlined below. On the negative side, the hotel was full which caused some issues. Only one elevator was working some of the time which made it time-consuming to get to/from the 5th floor. On my second day there, I received no replenishment of shower towels -- according to the front desk, they were out of them since people take them to the beach and keep them. Also, for a large hotel, they need to have more than one washer and one dryer -- it was full all the time and I had to drive to a laundromat to meet the locals. The wireless WiFi only worked in the front living area of the room and did not work back in the bedroom. My son turned on the heater since he was cold and water started dripping out of the ceiling register onto our clothes. July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by S'Alright! This is standard hotel fare - nothing too special or out of the ordinary. The location allows for the best of the Wilmington area with the Cape Fear river in one direction and the beaches being in the other. It's easy to get to and easy to get out of. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. July 23, 2014
