Really enjoyed our stay. This location is in the center of everything and only 4 miles to Wrightsville Beach. If you are in the area, check out Oceana Restaurant. The stuffed shrimp and crab dip are to die for. We were checking out UNC Wilmington and the university was very close. We will definitely be traveling back to the location.

We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. The staff where very helpful and pleasant to talk to. I was charged three different prices for ice cream out if the galley by three different front desk workers. Not sure if the price went up while I was there or they charged whatever they felt like. We used the pool twice.... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel was in very good condition for its age. They even had a small bar which I did not get to utilize but did see it open one night. The outside pool was a nice touch and was clean.

At the age of 6 years old, our staff does their best everyday to keep the hotel as clean and as beautiful as it was on opening day. Our Tuesday and Thursday Guest Reception is an event you do not want to miss if you happen to be traveling during the week. I hope you will take advantage of it... More

My 2nd time staying at this hotel… everything was excellent. Room was VERY clean, breakfast was excellent… front desk staff seemed a little busy on this visit but still quite pleasant. I would stay here again… no problem. Only downside was this stay seemed a bit more expensive but I assume that was due to the hotel being near a... More

On this trip we were moving our daughter into UNCW. This trip was hard on the whole family. The employees went out their way to ease this very emotional experience a better one. The girl at the front desk remembered us and why we were there and ask us how we were doing every time she saw us. This experience... More

Getting kids out of the house and onto their own two feet at college can certainly be challenging and emotional! Luckily, our property is only a couple minutes away from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and whether you are moving children in or out or just visiting, our hotel serves as a home away from home for many...

Overall very good hotel. Could use better breakfast items and quality of food. Room not very quiet lots of noise from hallways at night . Beds advertised as queens , think they were doubles and ok/average comfort . Would have preferred a Hilton.

We booked a king sized bed with refrigerator and microwave. Under amenities, it listed a sleeper sofa "for our comfort" in addition to the king sized bed. The images also showed the same. When we arrived, we had a room that was HALF the size the pictures show and NO sleeper sofa. We had two adults and two children on... More

5 star hotel in all areas! Hamptons rarely disappoint and this location fits the bill. Great staff, property is well maintained, close to shopping/dining, nice outside pool and patio. This is my top pick for Wilmington, NC hotels.

I have always been pleased whenever I have stayed at a Hampton Inn. The couple of nights I spent with my daughter recently in Wilmington was another extremely pleasant experience. It was very nice and clean, great breakfast, and the staff was very pleasant, personable and professional. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Wilmington.
