Decent room for a low price.

Room was clean and really not bad for the price. Close to restaurants.

Lowest of low

Don't stay here unless you need a place for a couple hours before a Scuba diving trip.

Simple, but comfy. It was all I needed for my one night stay in Wilmington. Good location, and a decent stay

Great Staff, but run down and dirty...

First room smelled like urine. 2nd room - no odors, but run down and in need of a good cleaning. Bed was comfortable and bedding was clean, but rest of room's condition and lack of cleanliness made you wary of "what you were going to leave with" when you checked out.

Good for what you pay

The people at the front desk were nice and helpful. The room was clean. Only stayed for one night but it was fine for 56 dollars.

Just as expected!

Nice location and fairly priced. Wish I had known about the train and train whistles that pass right behind the hotel all night long. Bring your earplugs.
