Our stay was only for two nights but they were great. The hotel staff was very helpful, friendly and efficient. The breakfast area was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast foods were plentiful and a good variety. This was our first visit to Wilmington and for sure not our last. The HI Express location is ideal for easy drives to... More

We have stayed several times in the last 6 months, The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast in the mornings is a hit or a miss depending on what is being served. Over all this has been a great place for us to stay at.

We visited this hotel in late July and always stay here while in Wilmington area. It is a great hotel with great accommodations, good complimentary breakfast with lots of great variety of foods to enjoy, and great location--close to college, businesses, main highways and beaches. The staff is superb, especially the breakfast bar crew--thanks Rhonda!

There for holiday weekend getaway. Walked in and immediately saw crumbs on the couch. Pulled back covers and saw a blonde hair. Both phones were so dirty, it turned my wet wipe brown when I cleaned them, ugh! Ceiling had large area of chipped paint near vent. Bathroom floor was obviously mopped with sour smelling mop. Housekeeping really needs to... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a trip to the beaches. Location was not far from The beaches and downtown Wilmington area. We were easily able to go where we needed in a short car ride. The room was clean and breakfast was good. My only minor complaint was the pool. The water was a little cloudy,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel when my son visited UNCW. The location was excellent and good for the visit. The breakfast was good for a Holiday Inn Express. The room was comfortable and the bed was good. It was an average hotel but what I expected from a Holiday Inn Express.

The desk staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, the bed & pillows were comfortable, and the breakfast was better than the typical buffet bar. The breakfast area was very nice with multiple types of seating. We found the location was excellent as it was only 10-15 minutes from downtown and the beach. My only complaint was that... More
