Scary hotel!

When we arrived at this hotel at 9:00 pm, it seemed to be in a scary, run-down part of town. When we awoke the next morning and could see the area better, this fear was confirmed. There were several locals living at the place... and one customer was asking the desk clerk if he could buy condoms. The room was quite small, but the bed was a good size. There was no crib available to rent and we were not able to get any extra pillows. The walls were in desparate need of cleaning, there was mold on the walls, and the bathroom was pretty disgusting. However, the desk clerk was very kind. He tried to accomodate us as much as possible.

Don't Walk...Run

This is a low end motel (not a hotel). I selected it because I thought it was walking distance from the train station. It was a long walk - maybe 30 minutes - through a knarley part of town (the wrong side of the river). Decent restaurants are a 30-minute walk back across the river to the Riverwalk, or a taxi ride ($10-$12 one way). The room was basic - TV, small fridge, microwave and bed. Bathroom was minimal (soap, no shampoo). No Internet. I heard the neighbor's TV well after I turned out my lights at 12:00. I was next to the office so after a certain point, I concluded it must be the office TV, not another guests. Not too thoughtful. Next door is the Gold Club. It's for "gentlemen." Check in took about 5 minutes as the desk clerk entered my details into a computer, scanned my driver's license and credit card. I was told to bolt my door when I was inside my room. I spent $65 for the room and was in it for about 9 hours, so it was tolerable, but I wouldn't even think about it under any other circumstances.

The worst hotel ever should be burned to

Disgusting rooms, sticky carpet, noisy gentlemen's club next door with cars racing through parking lot all night. Bathroom had rust all over floor, toilet ran, very little hot water. The most unfriendly staff I've encountered. The room was small and stunk of cigarettes, the state police were in parking lot off and on all night arresting people. Do not stay here!!

Not a great area for family, clean.

This hotel is very busy at night and is parked in between two strip clubs in Wilmington. It was a clean room and had no problem with the check-in or check-out process. A few little things would have made it better like having a clock in the room or a hair dryer, ironing board, etc. The room did have a refrigerator and microwave which was great. It's a nice place to rest your head but is not a place to bring children.

Bad view Inn

We drove into a parking lot to a cinderblock motel- not a car in the parking lot. It was right next to a strip club. The fence beside the inn had razor wire on it another bad sign. We did take a look at a couple of the rooms.They smelled strongly of cig. smoke.The rooms were quite shabby, with rusty fridges, and dingy bathrooms.

Convenient & Quiet

Although off the main thorofares, motel staff was unusually friendly and helpful. After learning a reasonably fast route to daily business activity, I found room to be convenient and restorative.
