We happened upon Hotel Riverwalk entirely by accident, but we are so happy we did! Carla and Troy made us feel right at home. They are a font of information about their adopted city and share great tips about restaurants and attractions. The hotel is located just two blocks up form the river front, right in the heart of the... More

Troy and Carla are wonderful hosts. The hotel location is perfect, close to everything while quiet, like an oasis. Parking was safe and free. The special touches that Troy and Carla have added made our last night in NC a real treat, little snacks and the light breakfast that we enjoyed on the front porch. The bed and linens were... More

I stay in chain hotels for consistency. But I would choose Hotel Riverwalk for excellence...in everything. The rooms are spanking new, meticulously cleaned and maintained. The building itself a smart conversion from a school and designed for 21st century travelers. Great internet speed. Easy parking behind the building. State of the art QUIET air conditioning and heating. Nice, comfortable firm... More

Very nice room, great location. Walking distance to tons of restaurants. Owners gave me good advice on where to drink and eat as I have never been to Wilmington before. I only stayed one night. I would stay there again for business to personal travel.

We just returned from a 3 day, 2 night visit to Wilmington, NC and a stay at the wonderful Riverwalk Hotel. The location was perfect. We walked to downtown riverfront shops and restaurants only 2 blocks away. The hotel is beautifully maintained and clean. But what made the experience so exceptional were the owner-managers. Carla and Troy were helpful, friendly,... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and loved it. We stayed in the "Superior Room" which was very spacious and comfortable. The hotel itself could be described as a mix between a bed and breakfast and a boutique hotel. It is located only 2 blocks from the river walk, which provides many things to do and places... More

We arrived a little late but Troy made us very welcome and still had time to show us around and give us some local tips. The hotel is spotlessly clean, well furnished and perfectly located for visiting historic downtown Wilmington. Highly recommend staying at this hotel!

Stayed one night in this lovely hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with crispy linens and comfortable beds. We had a room with two queens which was a good size. I especially liked having a ceiling fan in the room. We enjoyed being in the heart of the old town as it was easy to leave our car... More

Hotel Riverwalk is a family run operation and it is run as a family. Carla and Troy are most accommodating in all regards. The rooms are spacious and immaculate and the location terrific, an easy walk to excellent restaurants and interesting things to see and do.

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.
