By default I took a room at this Hampton and was very pleased with everything. Quiet, clean room. Hotel was in a great location. This was a business trip for me so I did not get a chance to enjoy the pool, etc.

This was a pretty typical Hampton experience. We stayed for three nights. Room was clean and mattress was very comfy. We had breakfast only one of the mornings but it was decent except for a moldy bagel I picked up and almost ate. Location is good as everything is only minutes away.

Terrific stay at the Hampton Inn standards you expect. Cheerful greeting at the desk, room and common areas all spic and span, good breakfast. Nice quiet location convenient to downtown and Wrightsville Beach. Also a rate nearly $30 less than the HGI and Homewood one mile away. Would return!

Close enough to the beach, but far enough away to avoid traffic and parking issues. Lobby is really nice including an aquarium that the little one loves to watch and a BBQ area out back. Lots of restaurants nearby, even some within walking distance.

The kids love our fish tank and parents and grandparents can enjoy the cozy lobby area adjoining it. Our patio is also used frequently by guests as well as our grill. Thank you so much for staying with us and for highlighting some of these unexpected amenities. We will see you next time you are in town! More

We were without cable tv for two days of our four day stay. We were told that it was an issue with Time Warner, but we were not offered another room or any compensation until after 3 complaints. At check out, we were given a 10% discount.

I am so sorry for the issues our property had with our cable provider! This unexpected issue was finally resolved 2 days after we originally reported the issue. Unfortunately, the cable problems were experienced in multiple rooms and switching rooms would not have solved the problem. Thank you for sticking out the additional nights with us, I am so disappointed... More

I am a loyal Hampton Inn guest and I thought this was one of the best properties I've stayed in. It was beautiful and well managed. The staff was friendly and took good care of us. We even survived Hurricane Arthur there! I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Wilmington area.

This was a wonderful place to stay for a nice beach get away. Carolina Beach was 15ish minutes away. The breakfast was nice. Rooms very clean. Staff super helpful. Near by restaurants were great for grabbing dinner. I would definately stay again. We did not use the pool but I was pleased at how clean it was.

We came down to visit family. This was a wonderful place to stay with clean rooms and welcoming staff. All of the facilities were clean and nice. I used to work out facility and pool and was completely satisfied. It was near MANY shops and restaurants...and a bowling alley. When we come back, we will stay here again!

This hotel was perfect! The staff was so nice, really professional, and would take the opportunity to greet guests as soon as they saw someone. We only stayed for one night, but the area was fantastic. We visited the little shops and restaurants near the coast and watched the sun set (very beautiful!). The room was very clean and the...
