We stayed at Hotel Riverwalk for 2 days during a wedding in February. We really liked the nice and cosy room, especially the huge comfortable bed :-)! Location in Downtown Wilmington is perfect.Thanks to Carla and Troy!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and really enjoyed our stay. It was a great location. Walking distance to everywhere you'd want to go-restaurants, bars and shopping. The breakfast was really good. The patio outside was really nice. We enjoyed playing cards and drinking a bottle of wine there. Would visit again.

We arrived early & were to our delight greeted courteously by the owners who gave us a tour and showed us to our room. This intimate B&B was decorated beautifully/smartly with everything one would need ie: new mattress, comfy pillows, hair dryer, flat screen tv, pedistal sink, curved/wide shower curtain rod and morning refreshments. Excellent location w/in a close walk... More

Hotel riverwalk is run by a wonderfully engaging and courteous couple, Troy and Carla Reed. It is located in downtown Wilmington, along the riverwalk. The scenic view on the patio is accented by porch swings and beautiful benches. It is unlike any other hotel, in that it is cozy and quaint. The feel is romantically secluded, even though it is...

What a delightful find - Perfect location - easy walk to river, great bars and restaurants. The hotel is newly renovated- sweaky clean - and beautifully furnished. Wonderful bed - breakfast was adequate- juice , great coffee, fruit and lots of breakfast type snacks. Instant oatmeal also available. Owners are very friendly - made you feel welcome. Highly recommended!!!

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.

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
