my mom and I took a 3 day 2 night stay to wrightsville beach and stayed in a sound side room. I will say right away that the view from our room was beautiful and the location can't be beat, but it just seemed like something was missing. The positives: the location is great -right on ocean, with beautiful landscaping... More

Went on a girls trip for a few days to the beach. I did not book this hotel personally, but so glad that the ladies I went with chose it. Here are some of the reasons I loved it: -Retro vibe where I could imagine vacationing here in the 60s but still modern. -Breakfast buffet was on point. Great selection... More

Wonderful staff, great service, food was excellent and the weather couldn't have been better. A little pricey but the room was perfect overlooking the ocean and pool and the breakfast buffet was a huge surprise - excellent!

We stayed here the week of July 27 for 3 nights. It was our third stay here. The hotel is clean and the breakfast buffet is delicious. The Keurig in my room needed to be serviced so I left a note for housekeeping and it was promptly switched out for a other one. The housekeeping staff is wonderful. They spend... More

This hotel was awesome. Location is right on the beach, comfortable beds, amazing breakfast, friendly staff. The pool isn't huge but perfect for a change from the beach. Nice outdoor bar with shade. Several restaurants within walking distance. The decor is art deco, similar to Miami hotels. I will absolutely go back again!

Found Hotel on Internet for a nice 2-day visit. Stayed on level 5 in an oceanfront room. Very nice and updated although bathroom was fairly small. High season rates are high but not much you can change in the area. Included breakfast was outstanding. Servers were very cordial, sometimes you don't see at many hotels. Plenty of parking. Clean facility... More

If you book direct, you'll be paying approximately $200 per day more than guests who don't. Filthy, poor customer service. Management flippant and quote "avg rates" when discussing my $435 per day rate when others spent $180. Not worth it!

Great staff, food and location! Best beach to unwind and just relax without crowds! We plan to go again next year! We splurged for the ocean view room with a balcony and loved seeing the Pelicans and dolphins from our room each morning!

oceanfront rooms are beautiful-staff is very professional and hospitable. the pool area and grounds are lovely. Had a very enjoyable time with the bar staff. Next time would go elsewhere for food, not terribly impressed with the restaurant. I would like to see that improved, so guests have a one-stop destination.

Wonderful girls weekend with my daughter and niece. Beautiful views, great location and good food. Encountered a few staff members who seem to be green in the hotel/travel industry. But this won't stop me from going back! Fall trip anyone?
