perfect for university access

We stayed here for my daughter's graduation from UNCW. We needed a handicapped accessible room for my mother and their room was perfect for her. Bathroom had a roll-in shower, and there was plenty of room in the suite. Kitchen had all we needed. It was close to school and town. Breakfast was average. I would stay here again if I go back to Wilmington

MainStay is the place!

Our family could not have been happier with MainStay! The staff was great!!! It was a very stormy weekend, and they let us check in early and actually check out late just to give us a couple of hours at the beach in between rain showers before we drove back home. I highly recommend this hotel!

Wilmington NC Fishing Stay

Nice semi-central location for everything except not as close to beaches as desired. Stay was ok. Recliner was broken and never fixed as promised. Had to go get towels because they didn't bring them all day. Trash was not picked up. Furniture was dated. Beds were comfy. Good breakfast and pool.

Last Minute Family Fun

Since this was a last minute Memorial Weekend trip most hotels were completely booked. I didn't want to spend more than $150 for a one night stay. Upon our arrival at the hotel I wasn't sure what to expect…average, I guess. The outside was well kept, and the building looked nice. We were greeted by a woman sitting at her desk; this was where we checked in. For me, the check-in process is usually how I base my judgement of the facility. OMG! I couldn't believe the hospitality we received…probably the best check-in service I have experienced--ever! The woman at the front desk was knowledgeable about the area and was able to recommend places/sights, and even offered directions. She continued to tell me about the hotel amenities, and the hours for the complimentary continental breakfast which I was completely unaware of. The next morning, my family and I were surprised to see that the breakfast was far more than the typical continental breakfast usually consisting of muffins, cold cereal, and maybe a waffle maker. This was the FREE continental breakfast from heaven. They offered so much more: bagels, toast, yogurt, pastries, muffins, hardboiled eggs, fresh fruit, hot oatmeal, grits, fresh fruit, sausage biscuits, apple and orange juice, coffee! And, they kept it coming! On top of all this, the woman who was in charge of the breakfast went to every table and asked if everything was fine, and if there was anything else she could get us. The hospitality and service were impeccable! Now, the only thing that created some disappointment was the room. I booked a nonsmoking room, but we were given a smoking room. The cigarette smell was so bad that all our clothes smelled of smoke the next day. Even running the a/c didn't get enough air flow to clear the odor. Luckily, I carry a can of febreze in my car that I was able to use to mask the odor. Other than the smoking room, everything else inside was nice and clean. It was actually better than I expected. It was the perfect size for my family of 5; complete with a kitchen, and living room area. When we visit the area again it will be for more than one night, and are most likely going to book a room at MainStay Suites. However, this time I will make sure it is a NON-smoking room.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Short drive to the beach, USS North Carolina, and Downtown Wilmington. If you like to explore new areas, drive around and see what you can find. That's what we did, and we found some pretty great eats: Casey's Buffet and Baba Ghannouj Bistro.

Pet Friendly

We like the hotel. It was very nice and friendly people. The only problem we had is that we where not told of a pet fee of $50.00 per dog and a weight limit of 25 lbs. I would stay here again and have friends stay here.
