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.

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

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.

Rooms were clean and quiet. Good location. Nice breakfast. Pool was clean. Internet was a bit slow and annoying when you had to log back in twice a day. Pillows were soft. Would have been nice to have some firm pillows on the bed. Overall it was a pleasant stay. Walking distance to shopping and dining.

This hotel was very nice. It was very clean, had a very nice pool (outdoor only was the only drawback), and a very nice fitness center (which I used daily). The staff was extremely courteous & helpful. The breakfast staff was very patient & accommodating. There was a 12 minute ride to beach with TONS of restaurants & shopping around.... More

Very nice hotel and good staff. It was conveniently located for our needs. There were several restaurants close by. It was a little pricey but an OK value. I would stay there again when I am in Wrightsville Beach fishing.

I'm glad you enjoyed our location. Our rates are always fluctuating with the seasons, so come on back by and check out our rates in the fall, but even in the summertime we still have competitive rates to catch beach-goers. Thank you for giving us a try and for sharing your thoughts. We will see you soon! More
