The Waterway has done a lot of upgrades , remodeled most of the rooms painted. Upgraded the grounds looks great. They are pet friendly which is awesome we take our baby. Great location close to all the best places to eat and close to the beach.

We stayed here in June, 2014 for a quick weekend get away. I called and requested a room for my husband, myself, and our two children. I made the reservation and checked in upon arrival, and paid over 500 for two weekend nights, including the pet fees, as we also had our two small dogs. I got up to the...

We stayed in the Waterway during the weekend of May 16. Most other Wilmington hotels were booked as a result of the soccer tournament we were attending. We knew it was an older hotel and we were fine with that. We stayed in a "condo unit" with a king bed, full kitchen and pull out couch. All fixtures, especially the...

They did have hot water the two nights we were there. The morning we were leaving, other guests were complaining there room had no hot water. At...

The rooms are very clean, the staff  is very helpful and it even allows pets! I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to...

My daughter & I took a long weekend to getaway from work & school. Waterway Lodge is conveniently located to the beach, coastal byways, shopping & restaurants. I coordinated my trip through the owners of rooms 222 & 227. They made it so easy for us to go in & drop our things & begin sight-seeing. Our room was equipped...

My assistant and I traveled to Waterway Lodge last month to do a working vacation at the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodge has a nice little kitchenette and was cozy. Only five minutes from the beach-- easy access to the water! I would recommend the Waterway Lodge to anyone visiting Wilmington. They had excellent customer service and...

We decided to take a quick trip down to Wrightsville Beach on a whim on Sunday for the night. Since we didn't have a sitter for the dog we needed a pet friendly location near the beach, and this worked out great. Nice interior, friendly help at the front desk and close to the beach, although not walking distance. Overall...

Overall a very nice place. Great location, good value, clean and beds were comfortable. Nice new flat screen TV on the wall. Make sure you request extra towels as they gave us two and we had 1 adult and two kids. Bathroom is nothing grand and do not expect the tons of soap bars or the luxry shampoo that you...

“Request one on first floor so you can park and walk in. A little noisey from the road to Wrightsville Beach, but the A/C drowns out most of the noise. We were so tired it didn't matter.”
