I love the breakfast my room was always clean and the AC is awesome!!!

This was the first time our family stayed in a hotel for our yearly NC trip, due to less than a week stay. We usually stayed in an ocean front condo. The hotel is in close proximity to Wrightsville Beach (5 miles), Target (1.8 miles), Walmart (1.5 miles), and many restaurants, which is nice. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and breakfast was good (Turkey sausages were a little gamy, they could use a different brand though, like Jimmy Dean?). When it got really busy during breakfast, the staff opened another room for us to sit. There is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers, using only $1 each in quarters. The carpets in hallways could use a little upgrade. Some of the staff greeted us every time we came in, some didn't, which wasn't very Southern. However, we didn't have a chance to use the pool. It was a last minute vacation, so we couldn't get any suites. So, book ahead! Overall, it was a great stay.

In town for just one night for a wedding. Staff were very nice and efficient. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was nice on our way out of town.

The hotel was comfortable and clean. I especially appreciate how they use duvet covers (rather than comforters) as they are cleaned as often as the sheets. I would definitely recommend!

It was very clean, friendly staff, great location.

[...]Everything else was great! The hotel was only 5-6 miles from Wrightsville Beach.

The hotel was very good. The only thing that was a minus, was that a nearby restaurant had loud music at night which sounded like it was happening outside in the parking lot. It didn't last long but it was a disturbance.

The location was centrally located between the beach and daughter's apartment. The staff was friendly, rooms were very clean and comfortable. Exercise room was well appointed. Hot breakfast was very good. Hotel was much better than a different one we stayed at last time. Was very pleased with the overall experience. Would definitely go back.

Staff was very accommodating. I needed to print a document but did not know my userid and password so that I could use the business center. The manager allowed me to send the document to him and he printed it. For some reason, it took nearly an hour before he received the document; yet, he kept me apprised of its status. Front desk, cleaning crew and kitchen assistants were all friendly and helpful. The room was attractive, clean and the walk in shower was great. The only down side was that there was no closet where I could hang clothes.

From the friendliness of the check in staff, to the "awesome breakfast" with friendly staff, everything was 100% perfect.

Good location and nice size very clean room.

Great staff, very helpful, continental breakfast, work out facility, 5 mi from beach and 5 mi from old town wilmington, couldnt have asked for a better location. 1 street off of the main business route, so close to places to eat but quietly tucked away.

Great spot for a quick jaunt to the beach or a night on the riverwalk.
