Probably cheaper than the $68 that the website charged us if you book with them directly. The man at the front desk was very nice. The area had a gentle man's lounge next to it. You see people pull in and out, so i wondered what activities were going on. There seem to be people who live there and not... More

Terrible. Dealers outsides the hotel. Hookers and crackers outside the hotel. Not safety. Overprice. Bugs on the bed. I could not feel safe there and after 03 hours and a shower return to the road. I you think to stay here be careful....your far parking at any rest area around I95 is safety than this motel. Horrible.

The place is horrible. It is located next to TWO strip clubs,room smelled of cigarettes and urine.Prostitutes were roaming the parking lot and it looked like there were people actually living in the rooms. Parking seemed unsafe, I kept looking out the window every time we heard something. Not even an hour had past when we left!!

HORRIBLE!!! Looked like bullet holes in door and window. Molding falling off. Rusty outdated tub. Toilet wasn't attached to floor. Beds and couch had bodily fluid stains. Room smelled of cigarettes and urine. Water to shower had to be turned on by messing with the piping in the wall. Holes in parking lot which bottomed out my car. Very poor... More

I stayed here for a night when I went to Wilmington to run a half marathon. The room cost us $55 a night. We took a non-smoking room. There was dampness in the carpet next to the bed. The sheets looked clean. The bathroom was ok. If there were options in the same price range nearby I would recommend them.... More

The owner was nice but the hotel was scary so unfortunately, it is getting thumbs down. The hotel is next to a gentleman's lounge so music was playing loud until 4am. There was no dead bolt on the door and there were people coming and going all night and morning long. Hardly slept. Bed was a little scary...and hard. Bathroom... More

Located in a TERRIBLE part of town & next to a shady strip club!!! When we got in our room it smelled horrible & we found MAGGOTS in the bathtub & mouse droppings on the bed! Aside from that there was a lot of suspicious activity going on including 3 police cars & 6 police officers searching rooms! Absolutely REFUSED... More

...then this hotel is for you! I checked in early Saturday evening. The room had a run-down look with an unappetizing smell, but with no other options in the Wilmington area under 100 dollars a night I decided to make the best of it. Then I went to the bathroom. I turned on the light, and, much to my disgust,... More

If you're a dirty old man, or an escaped convict looking for somewhere to take a prostitute, then this is the ideal spot for you. Oh dear dear me. This is a definite NO NO ( unless you are indeed one of the 2 aforementioned ). I didn't spot the signs as I checked in, but there are literally signs... More
