Just there for one night on my own. Quick check-in, nice clean room and excellent shower with sliding doors (no tub). Comfortable quiet sleep and quick breakfast in the morning. Easy parking. Right at the end of I-40 but takes a few turns to get to.

This hotel fully lived up to my expectation of a Hampton Inn. The staff were welcoming, helpful and efficient. The hotel was extremely clean and comfortable, and the breakfast excellent. The location is very convenient for getting downtown or to surrounding areas.

We were in town for a funeral. I booked several rooms for different family members. We had a king room and really liked it. We loved the layout of the room, the king size bed was very comfortable, I enjoyed the large walk-in shower. Keep in mind in room we were in there was no tub. But I loved that... More

I am a seminar presenter and 80-100 times a year hold seminars in 29 states. I use Hilton Hotels almost exclusively because they are "consistently consistent". I also use the meeting rooms and find them to be well-equipped and clean. My attendees often stay at the meeting hotel and I never hear any complaints.

We always stay at this Hampton Inn whenever we visit our daughter at UNCW. It is very close to the campus. The hotel is always very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good and the selection varies from day to day. Highly recommended.

I stayed at this hotel for one night in February 2015 while visiting family nearby. I've stayed here before and can report that the hotel is consistently clean and comfortable. I like this hotel due to it's central location, there are plenty of dining choices closeby and it seems equal distance between the beach and downtown. My room was clean... More
