I had looked at reviews and Waterway seemed to be OK. The rooms were good, but the bathroom needed repairs. The tub / shower drain was coroding and the fixtures were very old. They did have hot water the two nights we were there. The morning we were leaving, other guests were complaining there room had no hot water. At... More

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at the waterway lodge in wrightsville beach. We couldn't be happier with our choice. It is perfectly located to both the beach and downtown Wilmington. The rooms are very clean, the staff  is very helpful and it even allows pets! I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to... More

My daughter & I took a long weekend to getaway from work & school. Waterway Lodge is conveniently located to the beach, coastal byways, shopping & restaurants. I coordinated my trip through the owners of rooms 222 & 227. They made it so easy for us to go in & drop our things & begin sight-seeing. Our room was equipped... More

My assistant and I traveled to Waterway Lodge last month to do a working vacation at the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodge has a nice little kitchenette and was cozy. Only five minutes from the beach-- easy access to the water! I would recommend the Waterway Lodge to anyone visiting Wilmington. They had excellent customer service and... More

We decided to take a quick trip down to Wrightsville Beach on a whim on Sunday for the night. Since we didn't have a sitter for the dog we needed a pet friendly location near the beach, and this worked out great. Nice interior, friendly help at the front desk and close to the beach, although not walking distance. Overall... More

Overall a very nice place. Great location, good value, clean and beds were comfortable. Nice new flat screen TV on the wall. Make sure you request extra towels as they gave us two and we had 1 adult and two kids. Bathroom is nothing grand and do not expect the tons of soap bars or the luxry shampoo that you... More

the person who wrote dump, not sure you stayed at the waterway lodge most rooms have been remodled if you walk into a room and dont like it you need to request another room then not at the end of check out trying to get something free. Maybe you sould have gone to a beach where other people don't go.

We stayed at the Waterway Lodge April 6th weekend of 2013 and loved it. We had checked online for other hotels and this one had the best rates. We had stayed there two summers ago and love the proximity to some of our favorite restaurants. The room is the perfect size for a couple. It is all you need for... More

I cannot believe they're asking $600 a week or $1,000 a month for this old, run down place in need of renovations! I don't know what room the picture show's but it's not the one we stayed in. When you make reservations they glorify the place. Pool adjecent to busy roadway. Very noisy. Inadequate service, the kids at the front... More

We had previously stayed at this Lodge in a room and we truly loved it. We booked a one bedroom condo for our recent stay Thanksgiving week-end. The price was high but we were in town for a family reunion and we expected the rates to be higher on a holiday. The condo was a major disappointment. It was dirty,... More
