I was in and out.

Not sure how helpful my review will be as I was just there for a one night stay. Had hoped to cool my heels at a pool when I got there, but they don't have one. Thought I had read there was one when I booked the hotel. No big deal. Room is nice. Cool little kitchen when you walk in the door. Nice firm bed, LG flat screen, internet was nice and fast (with the option to go faster if you cough up some money). There are laundry services down the hall should you need to do a load. Price is just enough to where you're not breaking your bank but you're also not sharing the hotel with creepy people (always a plus).

Walmart is within walking distance. A popular wing joint is close to if you want to tip a few back and not have to worry about driving back to the hotel.

Third Night

I enjoyed my first 2 nights at this hotel so I decided to stay and pay the extra $20 instead of moving to a hotel in a better location (for me and my extended plans). The staff was great and would definitely recommend this hotel to people looking to stay a few days and need quiet time. I wasn't bothered and although I could hear people coming and going from their rooms it wasn't a big deal.

Great experience

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Room had everything we needed - full sized fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink and stovetop in the kitchen area. Room was spacious. Hotel is pet friendly with a.very.reasonable pet fee of $25. The bathroom was a bit small, but functional. The location was phenominal. We were within 10 minutes.of reataurants, UNCW, and downtown/river front. Would recommend.

No HOT water!!!

That says it: there was no hot water. Moreover, the single worker said she could not move me because I booked through a third party. Also, there were multiple dogs (on small on my floor and a large dog on the first). The furniture was stained and (lol) the floor was not slanted. I will never stay there again.

Staff Friendly & Helpful, Hotel HORRIBLE!

Noisiest hotel I have ever been at. The Staff makes up for the disadvantages, however when they refunded our money, the employee actually charged us AGAIN!!! Therefore, he then had to refund the original $200, the second accidenty charged $200, and a $400 refund, which takes at least 3 business days to actually refund! The doors seem to have 5 inches under them, so you can hear EVERYTHING in the hallway. We were on the 1st floor and heard the laundry room all night, were moved to a second room next to the elevator and front door, and heard ghetto people coming in at all times of the night, screamin at yelling! Not a good place to stay. We ended up moving to another hotel up the street. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

DO NOT STAY HERE! So me and my boyfriend had a weekend get away and we booked this hotel at the last minute. We requested a non smoking room, but because of last minute accommodations we were put into a smoking room...BIG MISTAKE! The room reeked of stale cigarettes and when we pulled back the covers there were dark rusty spots all over the comforter and sheets! I was completely disgusted! And to make matters worse when I went to check out the bathroom we found burn marks all over the counters and bath tub!...To sum it up ignore the other reviews and take my advice do not stay here (I'm still trying to get the smoking odor out of my clothes)!

Great for the price

The room was spacious, clean and quiet. The hotel was full and we didn't hear anyone else (even the dog 2 doors down we heard barking as we walked down the hallway). The room looked and smelled clean, the linens, kitchen, and bathroom were all very clean and in working order. The bed was hard but that's to be expected from a 2 star hotel. The AC unit was more than adequate to cool the large room with 2 adults. The hotel was right next to a Walmart so we were able to get food easily from there to keep and cook in the hotel. The office staff was courteous and gave us extra coffee, dish soap and an extra bed set for a friend to sleep on an air mattress. We were in between the river and the beach and were able to get a taxi for $7 to each after going out. Overall the hotel was well worth the price.

Ehhhh....

Okay, So i got into this hotel cheap- it was a spur of the moment overnight stay. Previous stays in ESA hotels have been fine. When we arrived at this hotel, it took about 15 minutes to find our reservation. Also, the lobby of the hotel reeks of smoke (however our room didn't, thank goodness). The room was okay- the TV was not as advertised, was about a 13 inch tube tv that was hard to operate. The worst part was the bed. I honestly have slept on floors that had more cushion. If you are easy to please, and need to keep it cheap than this hotel would work for you. If you need any creature comforts, look elsewhere.
