My bride and I were married on 4/22/2017 and stayed our first night at the Best Western in Wilmington before traveling on to our Honeymoon. The room and amneties were outstanding and we were very pleased with the entire experience. The indoor pool was a plus and jacuzzi in the room was a treat !!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

My sister mentioned that she would be headed to a restaurant in Wilmington in the Monkey Junction area to celebrate her birthday and that she didn't currently have plans for where she would stay. (She'd play it by ear.) I set off to search for good places to stay in the area and reviews for this place were good. I...

Loved the hotel, but felt unsafe when we witnessed cleaning staff propting open a back door to go out and smoke.The desk clerks were very courteous and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. I would stay at the hotel again.

Check-in: beds unmade, with sheets that had clearly not been changed. Move to room across the hall: hotel is on the highway. Rooms on that side get noise from traffic. Very noticeable. Move to third room: room is good. Not great. Alarm going off in room down the hall. I went to check it out. Room empty, door left ajar....

We are sorry you did not enjoy your recent stay with us. We always try to take care of our guests (in this case, moving you to a second room -- which you inspected before taking it -- and then moving you yet again afterwards), but as the saying goes, you can't please everybody. Best of luck in your future...

This professionally run hotel/motel is immaculate. It is conveniently located to both the city of Wilmington and to Carolina Beach and Kure Beach attractions. The hotel is also located on a service road adjacent to US 421 and is thus, quiet. In short, a super stay.

Great Staff but could use some updates. Pool was warm and the kids loved it. Not far from the beach which was great! Plenty of restaurants around to eat and some shops not to far also! You will have a good time here

Staff was gracious and helpful. Reported one problem in room that was immediately fixed but later realized TV didn't work at all. Noisy overall, might have been the guest make up that night. Breakfast was included which was nice but a very limited selection, and hot items were lukewarm at best.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay. We're glad to know our staff was gracious and attentive, but it's disconcerting to hear about the issues you experienced with your TV and the hot breakfast. I've passed this message onto the breakfast and maintenance staffs so we can get those concerns addressed immediately. We...

The hotel was very appealing inside and outside and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be coming back again. The only thing I would change is the breakfast. Having more options.

We enjoyed a night traveling through. All the staff we encountered were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was clean and bed comfortable. We were able to walk to several restaurants which was nice. We had no complaints.
