Had the most marvelous experience at this historic inn. So convenient to everything in historic Wilmington. We were there for the Azalea Festival and saw the fireworks from our room -- fantastic. Mr. Michael is the very best innkeeper ever. His knowledge of the area, suggestions for what to do and most especially where to eat are invaluable. He is...

Before we even arrived we had several contacts with Mr. Michael. He helped us with planning and timing and even directions to get to the inn. Once we arrived he even helped us unload. What an amazing person and the kind of person you want to be the "face" of your business. He helped in so many ways, was super...

This is the only place that will give you the convenience to downtown and quality customer service for the money. The rooms are beautiful and well kept. I never wanted to leave. It felt like i had my own loft downtown. I won't ever stay anywhere else when I travel to Wilmington! Neither should you.

We stay in Wilmington weekly for business and typically stay in a hotel. Waited until last minute to book a hotel room and the downtown options were sold out, so started looking for a different option. I am so glad the hotel was sold out! We have now found a new weekly home for our business trips and is a...

My solo stay at Stemmerman's for a mid-week business trip was perfect for downtown meetings! It's in the middle of everything going on in the historic area. No need to drive or worry about having to walk back to a hotel or B&B on darkened streets. I hope to stay for longer next time. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Could...

Hey Folks, Thank you so much for the kind remarks and about that Skylight, I have one also in my suite and concur to your opinion. They've been installed and replaced for many years.

I came across this quaint inn back a few years ago when I was in town for a conference. I have stayed there now three separate times and I love love the place as it is very reasonable and has a European feel to it. It's my go to place when I'm in Wilmington. Mr. Michael is the BEST!!!!!
