Decent room for a low price.

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

Worked for us

We were looking for an affordable room at the last minute near enough to the beach. This was affordable and had what we needed without much in the way of extras. We slept well and spent our days at the beach.

Cannot expect much more for the price

Just regular motel. Rooms are quite old and need to be refreshed. But price is cheap so there is nothing special to complain about. We got a very simple breakfast. Internet was working well.

For the price okay

For the price it's a good deal, don't expect a good breakfast and be prepared for 1 or 2 roaches but like I said for the price it's okay for a one night fast stay.

good for the price-clean-quiet

This was a great location-close to center of town and just about centered for entire area. Hotel was kept clean inside and out. The rooms were nothing special but good value for the money.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Beautiful downtown area-spanish moss hanging from trees-river walk-shops and wonderfull restaurants. Was never disappointed with a meal.

Great location and comfort for the price

Went up to Wilmington, NC for the show "One Tree Hill". My daughter is a huge fan and we spent most of the time at shoot locations. Great hotel for the amount of time we spent there. Conveniently located between downtown and the beaches. Good hotel to use as base while traveling throughout the day. Staff were very friendly.
