Five couples (friends from college) met in Wilmington for 2 nights for a reunion. After looking at several places, we selected the Front Street Inn and were glad we did. Great place, great innkeepers, great location. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We used the solarium on the back of the Inn as our gathering place. Nice breakfast. It was... More

Stayed at the Front Street Inn for one night in early April as part business trip. The location is perfect, in the heart of a walkable/runnable downtown. The innkeepers were kind and attentive. The room was cozy and well-appointed. Breakfast was very good and I loved watching the "inn cat" play outside while we ate in the sunroom. Great spot... More

My husband surprised me with a trip to Wilmington for our one-year anniversary. He booked us a romantic get away at the Front Street Inn. It was an exceptional experience! Great breakfast, friendly owners who were a pleasure to chat with, and a great anniversary package which included a couples massage. Walking distance to all our favorite hot spots in... More

IT is a wonderful B&B. The Owners are wonderful. Accomodations were great its downtown, easy access to local fan fare. Used in films and may possibly stay where an actor, actress, director or producer is staying. Loved the buffet breakfast.

By coincidence we ended up in Wilmington (not Delaware!) NC Front st is a fun place with lots of restaurants etc and a nice waterfront. Oysters, Coronas and tuna tartare. Historic place. Well worth the trip. Nice bookstore too.

Wonderful downtown B&B. The breakfasts were excellent and it is about a block from all the riverfront restaurants and bars. The upstairs room had a nice balcony for morning coffee and there was a neat jacuzzi in the room. I'd definitely stay there again.

We had a fantastic time at the Front Street Inn - the location cannot be beat and the inn keepers were so sweet! The room was clean and very well furnished. Breakfast was delicious! The wine and snacks for purchase were well priced and very convenient! We sincerely appreciate the military discount we received and cannot recommend this B&B enough!

Love this quaint Inn. The rooms are large and nicely furnished. Breakfast was outstanding the best quiche I have ever had. The innkeepers are friendly and gracious. You are just a block from waterfront. Will definately stay here again and again.

We enjoyed the themed rooms (Molly Brown and Hemingway) that were bright and clean. Nice balcony off of the Hemingway with two chairs. Breakfast super - hot meal with fruit and baked goods. Liked that the owners had the honor system for 24-hour wine or soda service. The only drawback was in my expecation that the Inn was on the... More
