If you like to stay in smaller, non chain hotels, this is a good one. Recently refurbished, super clean rooms have everything you need including small fridge. Beds are extremely comfortable. Troy, the owner will take good care providing snacks and drinks. Nice front porch for sitting and relaxing. Decent continental breakfast. Easy walking to restaurants, bars and water front.

Troy and Carla helped make our stay a warm and inviting experience. We highly recommend this extremely clean and comfortable lodging to anyone who is interested in spending time in historic downtown Wilmington... The fact that this establishment is only a few blocks away from all the nightlife, eclectic shops, and fine dining helps to make this a perfect fit... More

What a wonderful stay! We had all the perks of staying in a bed and breakfast and a large hotel in one! My family and I stayed here and had a delightful experience. The hotel is a small hotel but has all of the convinces of staying in a large hotel with the added bonus of getting to get to... More

Our stay was absolutely fabulous and incredibly casual. Plus I'll never forget the way Troy and introduce each other: "I'm Louisiana, like the state" "I'm Troy, like Elena of Troy" You're both amazing guys and we'll be definitely back sooner or later. Louisiana & Matteo

We were so glad you chose Hotel Riverwalk for your honeymoon stay. It was such a pleasure meeting you and your husband and learning all about Italy. We hope you come back to the states soon and stay with us again so we can catch up. Best of everything for you and your family. More

This place is great! My wife found the Hotel Riverwalk and we stayed there for a week while we exlored North and South Carolina. A perfect location to experience Wilmington and everything the surrounding area has to offer. It is an easy walk to the river front, great restaurants and shops in downtown Wilmington and a short drive to the... More

Drove into Wilmington for the day with friends and by accident found this amazing place! It was beautiful! The Hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk to all the restaurants and shopping! The rooms were spacious yet cozy! The only regret we had is that we were only there for one night! On the way out I... More

We found this beautiful little place on Trip Advisor and decided to gamble on the unknown. It was our first trip to North Carolina and to Wilmington and we thought that if it was bad, we'd only have to tolerate it for one night :-). We were so surprised when we arrived to see the beautiful outdoor seating areas and... More

After booking another hotel for the wrong night, I was fortunate enough to find this wonderful establishment. Troy and Carla are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. You can tell they take pride in what they do as well as the establishment they run. The room was amazing. The bed was very comfortable with an array of... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. Not only are Carla and Troy extremely welcoming, the property is pristine and very accommodating. Ample parking too! You can't beat the location as far as enjoying the waterfront and downtown Wilmington area. Everything is one or two blocks away, including a small grocery store for last minute things. You will love it!

Our stay at the Hotel Riverwalk was stellar! The owners, Troy and Carla are warm, friendly and helpful hosts. The rooms, hotel and grounds are extremely clean. We stayed in Room 3. Pleasantly spacious and comfortable. Love the decor. What impressed me was the precision with which the room was laid out. Everything is placed perfectly - even the hairdryer... More
