Very accommodating and flexible. Would recommend this spot for anyone traveling to the Wilmington area. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. There are snacks and drinks available in the lobby 24/7 and breakfast in the morning.

Room was clean, very nice, and definitely a step above your avg hotel. Best of all was the hospitality. Owners were very friendly, attentive, and helpful. If/when I come back 100% chance I'm staying here.

From booking to stay, Troy and the Hotel Riverwalk were fantastic. The hotel is conveniently located to the water, downtown restaurants, and bars. Everything is very new, clean and modern. It was nice returning to the hotel from Kure Beach- our stay was in May. The drive was about 9 miles or 15-20 minutes. Perhaps, that takes a bit longer... More

We just completed our stay at this wonderful little hotel. We let the owners know that we would be arriving early. They allowed us to park on site while we toured the historic district. Parking in downtown Wilmington is metered or pay-to-park lots, so parking at the hotel allowed us to walk to restaurants and the Riverwalk without worrying about... More

Our family booked the hotel for my son's wedding. We couldn't have asked for a hotel to be more accomodating! The location is very convenient to restaurants and points of interests. The rooms are very comfortable and secure. Thank you, Carla and Troy, for helping to make our son's wedding a memorable event for our entire family!

The location was perfect, walked to downtown shops and restaurants. Beautifully maintained and clean. But what made the experience so exceptional were the owners-managers. They were helpful,friendly and unobtrusive. We would travel out of our way to return.

Hotel Riverwalk has been under new ownership for over a year, but I am very familiar with the location when it was the Clarendon Inn. I absolutely love what the new owners have done with the place. The building itself is very warm and welcoming and somewhat tucked away from visibility. It is located within walking distance to all downtown... More

We recently spent a night at the Riverwalk Hotel and enjoyed everything about it. Our room was so well appointed and special in every way. We were on our way home from Fl and we were celebrating a special anniversary. This was the perfect place. It was our first time in Wilmington and the hotel is convenient to the riverwalk... More

This place is great! It almost seems like a bed and breakfast. Reasonably priced and within walking distance to everything. Seriously, we had a great time and mainly in due part of our accommodations.

From the moment you arrive into the parking lot you will know you made the right decision.

Our room was extremely clean and very well decorated. The... More
