TownePlace Suites by Marriott Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Everyone always spoke and was very friendly. Problems were addressed quickly and with a smile. Lobby is pleasing. Continental breakfast was more like a full breakfast. Elevators were quick and no obnoxious odors. Room was nice--great mattress and always hot water. Would definitely stay here again.

first room given had someone already in it, after that great stay!

Loved the blackboard with all community happenings noted (ideas of stuff to do!) for that day. Staff extremely nice, helpful and went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. Terrific use of space in room with full kitchens, area to work (desk/ofc) and chill (modern lounge couch). Only thing I would have liked better is if they could have let us do late check out. Perfect location for being close to downtown and the beach, easy parking

We knew we are going to stay in a pet friendly hotel, but we did not think that it would mean spotted, filthy carpet all over the hotel. Beat up furniture, etc. The pool is tiny. The front side of the building was swimming in same bad, waste smell. The staff is excellent and understanding. I understand that this hotel (?) is under major renovation, which is about overdue. I am surprised about the fact that Marriott has any property in such bad shape. Breakfast was nothing good to mention either. Greenish brown banana, old bagel, not much variety.

The hotel is close to everywhere you'd want to go while in Wilmington. Our room was clean and we found it to be a great place to stay with our dog.

very nice hotel its a few minutes drive from the beaches but it was a very clean and friendly hotel definitely a nice place to stay

Room very well organized with kitchen and storage. Very difficult to find the hotel. It is set back a long way from the road, and coming from Wilmington you don' t see the sign. All we could see was the Fairfield Marriott next door, who directed us to the Towne Places Suites.

The overall experience was above excellence. Will continue to shop with you guys.

Vacation visit for five nights. A nice place to stay near Wilmington, NC.

Hotel was very clean and I was worth it. Just that controlling AC was kinda difficult. It was too cold or too hot by just lowering one degree temp

Hotel was just what I needed for my week of work - comfortable and roomy with a full kitchenette. I loved the "real" hot oatmeal at breakfast each morning. I tried the turkey bacon but it was so rubbery, I gave up - guess it's not real food. I did not know this hotel is pet friendly, so I will not return to the brand because of the odor downstairs: pets and room fragrance hotel uses to mask the pet smell. I loved the hot tea selections - just wish they had paper cups instead of unhealthy styrofoam. I actually use the cups as one of the guides as to where I "hotel".

I have stayed here a couple of times, but this last time I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the hotel. The rooms are clean, but the halls smell. I am not sure if this is due to the fact that now pets can stay at the hotel and that may contribute to the smell of the shared spaces. My in-laws were staying next door at the Fairfield Inn and there was no smell in the common areas of the hotel. Perhaps next time we will make our reservation at the FF Inn.

Very nicely designed, comfortable and is in a great location. We plan on going back to the area and staying longer

Reasonable Rate, Clean room and comfy bed. Large, spacious room

There was nothing wrong with this hotel. The room was actually very clean and the way it was set up worked well for just the two of us. The bed wasn't very comfortable and the HVAC System wasn't set up so well. There was a unit near the windows, but the controls were on the wall in the kitchenette area. When the system clicked on, it had a very stale smell. also, it didn't seem to keep the room cool, but it did cool it while it was on. Also, it was hard to find the hotel, as the Fairfield was in front of the TownPlace, making it hard to see from the road. Plus, the sign was super close to the ground, making it difficult to see from the road. Overall, not a terrible place...fine for an overnight, but I don't know that we would use it for more than that.

The hotel was very clean and the stall was polite. The bathroom is a little small and the tall mirror should not be in the bathroom with the toilet and shower because it will fog up and you don't want to stand in front of the toilet to see yourself in the mirror. We had no other problems during our stay.

Polite staff. Quiet except for the little barking dog across the hall in the morning! Clean rooms, hot tub and poolside. Decent breakfast.

Great staff! Loved the proximity to the beach and downtown.

I usually cannot sleep well at hotels, but the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in a hotel. This was definitely the best night's sleep I've ever had in a hotel.

It was very nice. Staff was friendly. Only complaint was that at exactly 9am they closed down the breakfast bar.
