IT is a wonderful B&B. The Owners are wonderful. Accomodations were great its downtown, easy access to local fan fare. Used in films and may possibly stay where an actor, actress, director or producer is staying. Loved the buffet breakfast.

By coincidence we ended up in Wilmington (not Delaware!) NC Front st is a fun place with lots of restaurants etc and a nice waterfront. Oysters, Coronas and tuna tartare. Historic place. Well worth the trip. Nice bookstore too.

Great location in old part of Wilmington. Easy walk to attractions, river, downtown etc.. Great buffet style, freshly baked breakfast in lovely setting. Friendly staff. Hope to visit again and definitely would recommend it.

Wonderful downtown B&B. The breakfasts were excellent and it is about a block from all the riverfront restaurants and bars. The upstairs room had a nice balcony for morning coffee and there was a neat jacuzzi in the room. I'd definitely stay there again.

We had a fantastic time at the Front Street Inn - the location cannot be beat and the inn keepers were so sweet! The room was clean and very well furnished. Breakfast was delicious! The wine and snacks for purchase were well priced and very convenient! We sincerely appreciate the military discount we received and cannot recommend this B&B enough!

Love this quaint Inn. The rooms are large and nicely furnished. Breakfast was outstanding the best quiche I have ever had. The innkeepers are friendly and gracious. You are just a block from waterfront. Will definately stay here again and again.

We enjoyed the themed rooms (Molly Brown and Hemingway) that were bright and clean. Nice balcony off of the Hemingway with two chairs. Breakfast super - hot meal with fruit and baked goods. Liked that the owners had the honor system for 24-hour wine or soda service. The only drawback was in my expecation that the Inn was on the...

I made this reservation last minute and Richard was incredibly accommodating. Less than ten minute walk to front street brewery and 1 minute to The Little Dipper (fondue restaurant). Didn't notice cat hair, though the cat was certainly present and very friendly. Rooms were pristine, albeit somewhat expensive compared to other B&Bs, though that may be in part due to...

In historic downtown Wilmington and within walking distance to River Walk on the Cape Fear River waterfront. Great restaurants, bars and shopping also. The room we had was very nice. The staff was friendly and accommondating. We really liked the breakfast buffet instead of a set time for breakfast. The breakfasts were very good. We will definitely be back when...

After reading other reviews and seeing how the owner attacks guest who give poor reviews with personal information about their stay I am little hesitant to write this review, but here goes. As we were signing in we noticed a cat laying on a table in the breakfast area. When the owner noticed our concern he quickly assured us the...

Savvy travelers that research their travel plans online deserve to know that the reviews they're reading HONESTLY reflect the reviewer's experience. They also know that there are two sides to ever story (and, from the feedback I've received, they enjoy hearing both sides). That said, this review has nothing to do with our rescued cat or its fur (the title...
