The stay was nice until the morning of checkout and the management accused us of smoking in the room and accused us of causing a small hole in the wall in the far corner of the room that isn't even accessible unless furniture is moved out of the way and I can assure you that I wasn't staying there to...

This hotel is average. Not bad/not great. Does the trick if you're looking for a quick stay and a relatively clean room. Small annoyances--like stray hairs from prior guest in tub, broken soap dispenser, an unplugged light, and empty lotion container--strike me as par for the course for this price (or at least the price I should have paid). I...

Best Western is not usually my "go to" when I'm on the road for business or pleasure but when researching the area this was the most convenient and competitively priced hotel I could find. I was pleasantly surprised! The property is very well maintained, staff is friendly and accommodating and the location is convenient to UNC-W, Downtown Wilmington and several...

This is our usual choice when staying in the Wilmington area overnight - close to family, easy to access with a number of restaurant and fast-food options nearby. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff is friendly.

This location is beautiful. 5 miles away from the ocean. It also has an indoor pool and hot tub. My room had a Jacuzzi in it too! Very well decorated and spacious.

I paid 80 bucks to stay here, and it was definitely better than most less-than-$100/night hotels. It has really updated decor, and it was extremely clean. There were plenty of pillows, and while I had to ask for an extra blanket, they brought me two. Not a huge amount of space in the room we got, but probably have bigger,...

Reviewed 9 January 2017

This unit seems to be slipping a bit - we've stayed there several times before. But this time, often the breakfast items were cold or delayed; double beds instead of Queen sized; and the spa/pool area, especially the spa, were quite dirty. In fact, the spa tiles were discolored with filth - not terribly inviting at all.
