Good property for the price. Nothing special but they do try to please. It is clean and the suite was comfortable. Stayed for 3 nights while in Wilmington on business. Would return again, but if you're looking for AAA 4 star this is not your place. Clean, comfortable, reasonable. Good location to all things Wilmington.

Only stayed for 1 night, and if ever in the area again, will absolutely stay here.We were on the smoking floor, and there were people in the hall just hanging out ( NOT... More

Spacious enough, clean nice place to stay. Gym only has one treadmill, one bike and one stair stepper. But no free weights, just a couple of machines. It was never crowded though so it was fine. We were on the 2nd floor and people on top of us were really loud. Maybe shoot for a top floor. Beds were super... More

This place was exceptionally clean. The layout was such that there was a divider wall between the beds and sitting room. It offered a lounge chair, sofa, and another TV. There was also an island for computer work and sitting to eat. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel was spotless! Tongela, who checked us in was a delight! Very courteous! Our room was immaculate. It was nice that there was a continental breakfast--the other extended stay places didn't offer that. The breakfast area was kept clean and well-stocked.
