Recent guest reviews

Party City. Tailgating I'm parking lot and balconies. Smoking, drinking and loud profanity till wee hours of the night. Non-smoking room smelled inside like 10 smokers were inside with me as smoke whafted inside from tailgaters just outside my door. Complete dive to put it mildly. Worst stay ever! You're better off pulling off somewhere and sleeping in your car. Had to check out early because it was so bad at the Wilmington, NC ABVI. Lady no ght clerk told me "sorry to hear you felt that way. She could have cared less. If you like Mardi Gras, then by all means, this is the place to stay. Worst ever motel experience in my life!

Check in was fine but the room itself was deplorable. At first glance it was dirty, but as my stay went on, it simply got worse and worse. Nails exposed in the carpeting near the door, dust ruffle had fluid stains (don't even want to think about what they were), caught and killed several large roaches and other dead insects were present, floor was dirty, sink wouldn't drain properly because the plug was stuck in the shut position, TV reception was very fuzzy, Sheets were definitely not clean (literally filled with sand) so I used blankets/pillows I brought on my road trip, the curtain has dozens of holes in it and I could clearly hear everything that was going on in the rooms next to me. By far the worst hotel experience I've ever had.

This hotel is old and run down with numerous signs of little up keep and maintence. The door knobs were loose and unsafe. The beds made noises and were very old. The pool was closed for cleaning & the breakfast consisted of dried out breads with no place to sit. Grab & go only. Although the place is falling apart, the room was clean and the cleaning staff were very kind and helpful. They should get an award.

Room was super small but the air worked great, which was good because it was 112 degrees. It was close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. Pool was sufficient for kiddos. Doors were kind of a pain to get in and we weren't the only ones having that problem. Laundry was good and it was quiet at night. All in all, a good little motel for a short stay. If you are looking for spaciousness, this isn't it, but if you are looking for a safe place that's a steal of a deal, this is you're place!

Very comfortable not too far form beach I had a nice room but kinda out dated . Not bad for the money I paid .

The hotel is in a less than desirable neighborhood. The rooms are clean but barebones. No Iron, no coffee maker. Breakfast was very weak and had to be taken back to your room because there was no seating. No restaurant within walking distance. WIFI was weak.

It is an easy place to stay if you are just using it for sleep. Very close to both beach and downtown Wilmington.

Clean, renovated hotel. Very convenient location. Good value

This is a budget motel, definitely not for families or people who want the best of the best. It's in a good location, cheap, comfortable and clean.

This motel seems closer to downtown than the multitude of hotels lining both sides of Market Street. Reserved a non-smoking room, but the first room reeked of cigarettes so we were switched to one that still smelled of cigarettes, but was tolerable. This motel is okay for the money and seemed to be booked to capacity, but there is plenty of competition from similar motels east of this one. Typical '60s architecture, probably hasn't been updated since then. Breakfast is regular coffee, breads, pastries, instant hot cereals, fresh whole fruit. Didn't use the pool.

I loved that when I arrived in the late evening-night tht the security guy walked me to my room to inspect it and back to office. The front desk was very clear on information. The room was clean and comfy bed. Did not have a.mini-fridge or microwave like other micro hotels but otherwise a super great stay and for the price and location its easily within my budget.

The shower was not clean razor blade behind the toilet carpet was not vacuumed well. My reservation letter said that my check out time was noon but when I got there I was told it was 11am. I was told my room would be ready at 3pm but it was not ready until after 4pm. People were friendly, bed was comfortable, air conditioner worked perfect, refrigerator was perfect

Room is clean and everything u need is right there. Very reasonable price and good location.

We arrived at hotel at 4:15 and was told the room would not be ready for another 30 minutes. Then when we checked in they informed us there were no non smoking rooms as we requested.

We stayed one week here. This was by far the best value possible. The staff was friendly, our room was very clean. They also have a free grab and go breakfast in the morning everyday that alone helps cut down on trip cost. The pool was clean and tested everyday. Their health rating was an A 98.0. The location was perfect they are on Market St. which is the main road for everything stores, food, bars, activities. Your also only about 10-15 mins from wrightsville beach. Would deffinately recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for a birthday beach trip and was totally worth the 49$ a night. Clean room, nice location, and perfect spot to crash in between doing things out and about at the beach. Didn't include a mini fridge or hair dryer which was a bummer but we survived without.

We had a good experience at this hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. Rooms were very basic but the bed was comfortable. The free breakfast consisted of pastries, oatmeal, bread, bagels, juice and coffee. Wifi was free and there was a small outdoor pool that families were using. Overall the price did reflect the hotel.

had one problem with ac in the room and was switched quickly to another room. Great place and would send anyone here.

You can't beat the location. Staff were incredibly friendly! The room felt a little musty at times, but I only stayed for one night. I felt safe in this motel-style inn.

I like this hotel I just wish they had a fridge/microwave combo in the rooms. Especially for the convenience if you are staying more than one day. The staff was awesome and very helpful.

I apologize for your disappointment during your stay. If you were having concerns we would have gladly moved you for a quieter room. We do get contractors here and they can be noisy. I am truly sorry for this. We will work harder to ask for their consideration. Again, we are sorry.

worst hotel i've ever been to.

Everyone
sink not draining... One of many dead insects around... Exposed nails and flooring... Dirty dust ruffle

Check in was fine but the room itself was deplorable. At first glance it was dirty, but as my stay went on, it simply got worse and worse. Nails exposed in the carpeting near the door, dust ruffle had fluid stains (don't even want to think about what they were), caught and killed several large roaches and other dead insects were present, floor was dirty, sink wouldn't drain properly because the plug was stuck in the shut position, TV reception was very fuzzy, Sheets were definitely not clean (literally filled with sand) so I used blankets/pillows I brought on my road trip, the curtain has dozens of holes in it and I could clearly hear everything that was going on in the rooms next to me.

The hotel is in a less than desirable neighborhood. The rooms are clean but barebones. No Iron, no coffee maker. Breakfast was very weak and had to be taken back to your room because there was no seating. No restaurant within walking distance. WIFI was weak.

good on a budget

This is a budget motel, definitely not for families or people who want the best of the best. It's in a good location, cheap, comfortable and clean.
