Holiday Inn Resort Wrightsville Beach

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here on a short 2-day getaway weekend. The staff was friendly, attentive, and genuine, answering questions about things to do locally and in Wilmington. Great views of the water, just pure shoreline, and was exactly what we were hoping for.

it was a short stay but they have great amenities and on a beautiful stretch of beach. We will definitely return

From the moment we checked in, the service was wonderful. The front desk personnel, bellmen, restaurant and all staff we encountered provided positive, friendly and professional assistance. The beds were very comfortable, with 4 good pillows each. The view from the restaurant was wonderful. They even had live music on the Saturday night we stayed. Breakfast buffet was excellent (omelet station, delicious fresh fruit, etc.) and a great value at $12.99.

nice location, great weather, friendly staff, nice pool area

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

nice place. right on the beach. could not complain about a single thing

Excellent service and great location. Full price would be to much, but deal for $123 was great.

Wonderful. I do wish they would use soap that doesn't sting the eyes.

Our experience was wonderful! We had Gabby the parrot tuck in our son on the first night and he loved it, this service is very cool. The only down side would be that the breakfast buffet was a little expensive for what they were offering.

Everything was nice and comfortable. Unfortunately, our visit was short, but we would definitely stay here again.

perfect,, ill do it again

This hotel was awesome... Very friendly staff and great location. The only issue we had was we found a rose petal under our night stand that was not ours.

We visited the local college to see if it was a fit for my sister. We did touristy things like visit the aquarium. Our flights got in late and when we checked in the person was not the friendliest. Then we quickly dropped our bags off in the room and tried to get dinner, only to be told that the restaurant had just closed. She should have told us that when we checked in! We had to run to another restaurant outside of the hotel just to eat.

Hotel was great - clean, staff courteous, helpful, beach access wonderful. Nice place to take a relaxing vacation.

Mix up on arrival date by a week. Somehow while booking on line dates were changed tofollowing week. Arrived at hotel with no reservation. [...] Fortunately, the hotel desk manager who was standing there listening to me attempt to talk to the [...] customer service person, had impeccable customer service skills and accepted my reservations as they were, compting me the additional cost it would have been. She was excellent and made our stay fabulous. The hotel won the day for us[...]
