Perfect beach trip.

We booked one night at this hotel, so that we could spend two days at the beach celebrating my birthday. We have NO complaints about anything. The hotel is located right on the beach, with outdoor showers to clean off sand on the way back into the hotel. There is a beautiful, clean outdoor pool, with two whirlpools outdoors. And there is another beautiful, clean indoor pool, for those midday hours when it's prudent to get off the beach. We parked the car upon arrival and did not get back in it until we headed for home. The hotel restaurants were perfectly adequate for our meals. The gift shop had good quality items and plenty of selection at good prices. The hotel was a bit expensive, BUT it really was worth the cost to have such convenience. The staff was friendly, which made us feel very welcome and at home. We will definitely stay at this hotel again and will recommend it highly to others.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want to have a very casual meal a short walk down the beach from the hotel, stop in at the little restaurant at Johnny Mercer's Fishing pier. It's nothing at all fancy, but delicious, simple, inexpensive food.

Great holiday weekend!

This was a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was a little pricey, but the food was very good. My daughter's family really appreciated "kids eat for free". We used the pool, beach, and restaurant. We found out that we could rent beach umbrellas and chairs, which we will do the next time. They had a movie by the pool, which the kids enjoyed. We had a great time!

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Don't need to bring tents/umbrellas or beach chairs. Can rent from hotel. Staff will help set up and take down. Great service. My guess is that for busy week/weekend, may need to rent ahead of time.

Winter wkend getaway

Staff was most helpful and accommodating. Ocean's restaurant superb. Parking great. Good hotel for families. Bike rentals and other options avail. I was not with my family this trip but I had the screaming, door slamming, in/out all hours, to the indoor pool, getting ice.. etc that happens when you're with kids. Also phone rang twice after midnight, waking me up. Wrong number. Drunk? Prank? I was already settled in.. I didn't want the hassle of switching rooms. In fact, it was a very active hall in general. Who knows where I would have ended up. Not the restful weekend I had hoped for but I did get some shopping in and a couple of days at the beach.

MAKE IT A REGULAR GETAWAY SPOT.

I loved it. I just wish it were a little cheaper so I could stay there more often. The beach was beautiful and so was the ocean!

We love this hotel!

The staff is so wonderful and the rooms are great! You certainly can't beat the location either! We live nearby, but go there often for several staycations per year! It's our #1 choice!

Weekend for two

We were very pleased. The Hotel is very clean and well maintained. I would rate the Hotel as a 3 1/2 star at least. It is right on the beach. The restaurant is reasonably priced and fairly good. Wrightsville Beach is mostly high income residential and quiet. For us, it was perfect!
