Dear Roy M, While our hotel is incredibly convenient to a plethora of local restaurants, I'd have to agree that one of the best amenities we offer is our matchless service and hospitality. Not only will we recommend a sure-to-please spot for any meal, we will also ensure that we send guests headed in the right direction every time, to... More

Great place to stay in Wilmington!!!! Close to Wrightsville Beach and not far from downtown to see the battleship. Breakfast was fabulous and plenty for everyone. There was a large crowd for breakfast but plenty to eat.

Dear Holly O, Thanks for highlighting our brilliant location! Not only is Wrightsville beach just a bike trail away, our proximity to Wilmington's beautiful Historic Downtown area, The University of North Carolina at Wilmington's inviting and peaceful campus, and upbeat Mayfaire Towne shopping make our hotel the perfect option for whatever anyone wants to enjoy while in town.

I stay at this hotel frequently for business and personal trips to the Wilmington area. My stays at this Hampton Inn & Suites are always a good experience! The staff here are very attentive, helpful and courteous. The Manager's Nights are great too.

Dear Gordon A, Thanks for this review! The entire staff has been working hard during our "slow" season to prepare the hotel for spring and summer! While our location is very convenient to many points of interest around Wilmington, our proximity to The University of North Carolina at Wilmington takes the cake, even in comparison to other local accommodations.

I stayed here during a business trip. The check in clerk was very friendly. My reservations were made by my company for the wrong days, but she quickly accommodated me for the nights I needed. The room was clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I've stayed at several hotels in the area and this was by far my favorite over Marriott Fairfield Inn and Holiday Inn Express which was second favorite. The room was lowest around and beds were comfy and rooms cleaned. Breakfast was more than accommodating with western omelette and bacon and assorted muffins. Great!

This hotel is awesome. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. It is situated between downtown and the beach. Great restaurants near by, both within walking distance and a short drive. I stay at this hotel if I am within one hundred miles.

We visit Wilmington each Jan. to celebrate our son's birthday. We have stayed with another chain for years. We enjoyed our stay with the Hampton Inn. The rooms were nice, staff very nice & helpful, food was good. Only issue was pricing.

Clean hotel with friendly staff. Lots of restaurants around. Elevator was very slow and the tv and room was kind of small but, otherwise, a great hotel. Usable internet speed and lots of HD channels. Reasonably loud fan on the hvac to help drown out the doors slamming in the hallway while sleeping. Though, it also drowns out the tv... More
