Overall I was satisfied with my stay. On line check-in was beneficial in allowing me to select the location of my room. Hotel and room were clean and well kept. Breakfast food could be better. Staff was friendly.

Hi Robert H, We certainly appreciate the high compliments from a self proclaimed "hotel snob" as yourself! Thanks! Although rates may seem high around the beaches in the summer, our hotel does have competitive pricing and is actually a really great value, as you experienced yourself. We do serve a very traditional "American" breakfast which does have a few somewhat...

We were in Wilmington for a family wedding. Everything about our stay was great except complimentary WIFI is a little slow, for my taste. Staff was very helpful; breakfast was exceptional as far as the range of offerings. We would definitely stay again.
