Beautiful oceanfront units. Building needs a little TLC but overall it was fine. Staff was wonderful.

Great location and great beach. We stayed there 5 years ago and the place was great. It’s a bit run down since.

Everything is great! Thanks!

It was nice! Room was really nice and had a great view of the bay! Shower was terrible though! It wouldn’t drain and the water pressure was not good. More water came out of the spout than transferred to the shower head.

We paid for an oceanfront room, however our view was mostly of a building in front of our room. There was no balcony, just railings in front of sliding doors.

The beachfront flower garden area was the best part of this stay complete with little garden bunnies.

Beautiful landscaping

Everything about this property was great except our air conditioner in the room wasn’t working properly.

Expensive, nice, comfortable

Beautiful ocean side courtyard area. The staff was very friendly! Would definitely come again!

Wonderful stay & excellent staff made us feel very safe by taking extra precautions during Covid. Thank you so much!

We love staying right on the Beach for quick fall and winter getaways:-)

The grounds are beautiful. Loved the landscaping!

Beautiful chill grounds, beach and intercoastal beach and fishing pier.

i used to live at Wrightsville Beach and in Wilmington North Carolina. I have family and friends who still live there. I change the blockade runner for a yearly girls trip. It’s a special place.

Great location and property is beautiful. Views from the room to the sound are amazing

I was really disappointed in this hotel. They class themselves as a boutique hotel and charge accordingly. I was underwhelmed by the whole experience. There is no water pressure in the shower. The AC unit is the noisiest thing I've ever been around, every time it came on, it woke me up. The beds were OK, the view great. It would have been nice though if there were screens on the window. We wanted to turn the AC off and just listen to the ocean at night but the all night lights drew bugs. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad hotel, it's just very average and not worth the prices.
