The Howard Johnson Express Inn - Wilmington, NC was a good location for accessing downtown Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. The room size was adequate, the beds very comfortable and having the refridgerator and microwave was a real plus. There
were many places to eat near the hotel.
The Howard Johnson Express Inn - Wilmington is a small one level motor court that is very well maintained inside and outside. There is a desk area, comfortable beds, a microwave, refrigerator and a very adequate bathroom area. Couldn't ask for a
more convenient location being equidistant from the downtown historic area and the beach communities. The staff is very helpful and courteous. All in all a very, very good value.
The hotel wasn't very expensive so we didn't expect much but we were happily suprised! The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, and it was a desent size. We had an infant & a 6 yr. The room was spacious enough for the pack and play &
even for her to crawl around (yes we thought place was clean enough for her to crawl around!). The hotel was very quiet and in a good location (there was several places to eat, & a/b 10 mins from Wrightsville beach & 30 mins from Carolina beach). There was aslo a fridge & a micorwave in the room.
If you are looking for a desent hotel (that is not real fancy) at a desent price I would defintely recommend this place.
