We booked a room here for a weekend getaway to Wilmginton/Wrightsville Beach. Worst hotel room I've ever stayed in. They advertised the room as non-smoking when we booked, but there were multiple ash trays in the room & the entire hall floor reeked of cigarette smoke. The carpet in the room and throughout the rest of the hotel seemed damp... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice before during the renovation process. It is very convenient to the UNC-W campus. Our room had been renovated and was very nice. The breakfast area has moved back to its original location, but now serves a hot breakfast. Some of the rooms are still being renovated in the hotel but the one we... More

Hotel has undergone major renovations the last year and a half. Checked in last night and Bri was working behind the desk. She was pleasant and professional. Room was clean and breakfast was plentiful

This hotel was out of date. In their defense, they were updating but it just was not enough considering the price that was paid. Our room door had to be pushed hard to shut otherwise it did not latch. I worried that the housekeeper wouldn't shut it once she was done and something would happen to our stuff. Thankfully it...

It is a little difficult to rate this hotel at the present time as they are going through much needed renovations. The lobby area has been updated and is decent, although the hotel had the air turned up pretty high so it was hard to enjoy the lobby area in the evening or at breakfast. The hotel is old and...

My husband and I checked into this hotel at 3 PM and by 11 PM the room was damp and the carpet was dirty and wet. Our air conditioning never stopped running the whole time we were there. We went downstairs to hopefully change rooms but the front desk attendant said that the hotel was full. The walls throughout the... More

I stayed at the comfort in University in Wilmington in June 2014. I got the hotel through a deal on Priceline.com, I guess I got but I pay for! It was rated as two star but I would not even give it one star. When I arrived I was informed that I was placing a smoking room and when I... More

We traveled to Wilmington to take a tour of the UNCW campus. We chose this hotel for its close proximity to the school and we got a great price. The room was clean and met all of our needs. The hotel was full over the weekend but we weren't disturbed by loud noise from the hallway. The experience was exceptional... More

I had a friend staying at the hotel and the cute little auburn girl at the front desk was so helpful in providing us great places to eat and what was going on in town. She was much more welcoming than the hotel I was staying at. I believe her name was Brianna

I must have stayed at a different hotel than the people writing negative 1 or 3 star reviews. It was quiet, the price was fair and I had a nice, clean room. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and I feel obligated to mention one employee in particular, Brianna, specifically. She was very pleasant to interact with and helped... More
