Hotel lobby was nice and check in was easy and convenient. Our room was small and the bathroom too with only one sink inside of the room. The room looked clean but one pillow had stains and the curtains were dirty or mildew, not sure. Staff was friendly and breakfast was okay. Only stayed at the hotel a short time...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 April 2017 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...

It would have been way better if the jets wouldn't have shot out black stuff in my water. Other then that the breakfast was beyond good and I slept like a baby. The bath was nice without the jets. Just wish I could have used them

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay. It's great to hear you enjoyed our full, hot breakfast and comfortable beds, but I'm sorry to hear about the issue with your Jacuzzi jets. We will have our housekeeping department do a thorough cleaning of all the Jacuzzi jets immediately to make sure that doesn't...

We arrived at the hotel very late and were greeted by friendly staff members who quickly checked us in and reviewed the amenities of the hotel with us. Our room was clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable and complimentary breakfast the next morning was more than I expected. Omelettes, sausage, bagels, danishes and made to order waffles were...

Last minute trip for my daughter's 10th birthday. The entire family loved it. The kids loved the pool. I loved everything. Heated pool, cable , free wifi, breakfast buffet. It was very relaxing. We are already planning our next trip, and plan to stay longer this time.

My wife and I arranged a weekend getaway with the children and grandchildren to Carolina Beach and we decided that we all will stay at this hotel. We all enjoyed the location because it is within walking distance to nice family style restaurants and an easy drive to the beach.

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 !!

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.

Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the property and our friendly front desk staff, but we're sorry to hear about the issue with the back doors being propped open. That has been addressed with our housekeepers and will not be an issue again going forward.

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...
