“Clean and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Stayed while in the Wilmington Area. Very nice and clean. There had been a storm that weekend and many had lost power, so many families and power company lineman staying. The cleaning staff was working over and is showed. The place was kept very clean. Every staff member always greeted you and were very friendly. The front desk was friendly and helpful also. They have a small breakfast that was good, eggs and sausage, muffins, fruit. The room was clean and the bed slept well. The bed was a little to close to the air conditioning unit, but room was built that way and not the managements fault. The motel is located behind a gas station/subway store so you have to go through their lot to get to the front of the motel. It is also in a little shopping office complex, so watch for the signs. Would stay her again!

Room Tip: Room 221 has king bed with sleeper sofa. It faces the front of the building,

Thank you for the kind review. I appreciate you noticing how hard the staff was working during the unfortunate situation with the ice storm. They definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. We hope you will get a chance to come back under better circumstances. Barry Eagle

We stayed 3 nights here. Room was very nice. They came in everyday and cleaned up. Breakfast was amazing. That was not your ordinary continental breakfast. Everyday they had something differant. Eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes...cinnamon rolls were out of this world. Nice patio by the pool. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the firsdt floor...easy access to car and lobby.

Thank you for the great review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and the great Express Breakfast. I also appreciate your comments on our rooms. Each room is considered an Executive room with a microwave/refrigerator and sleeper sofa. We also have expanded ceiling heights to give a more spacious feel. Hope you get to come back soon.

My husband and I visited the HI Express-Leland with our yellow Labrador, a Guide Dog Ambassador, back in October. We enjoyed our stay - rooms are clean but a bit narrow in design, bed very comfortable, and we loved the pet-friendliness of the hotel. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was very nice, and Shirley made sure we knew where to find the delicious hot cinnamon buns and always kept the food supply flowing. Kudos to Shirley! We did, however, have an upsetting experience we could only determine might have been a scam, so dog-owners please beware. We were visiting the area to investigate a community nearby. Upon leaving our room, we were approached by a gentleman who accused our dog of biting his traveling companion. Of course our dog did not, as she is always leashed and with us and as a guide dog ambassador is impeccably behaved. In speaking with the man, we determined perhaps it was another dog down the hall and to be fair it very well may have been. But actually we think this couple might have been lurking in the hallways and preying on unsuspecting out-of-towners with larger dogs. This experience was upsetting and left a bad taste in our mouth with the hotel and the area in general, although we are willing to give it another chance in the hopes this was an isolated incident. We have traveled extensively with our dog with overwhelmingly wonderful experiences and will only stay at hotels that welcome well-behaved dogs and are thankful that this HI Express is dog-friendly. Responsible dog owners are key to maintaining this privilege we are allowed to enjoy.

I want to apologize for the unfortunate incident that occurred during your stay. I spoke to my management team and this is the first time hearing about the incident. We take great pride in our safety and security of the hotel and want to make sure all guests feel safe and secure. Being located in an upscale Golf Plantation our area rarely experiences any type of issues so to read this was very upsetting. We will have our management team reach out to you to get a better understanding of what happened and descriptions of the individuals that approached you. Although, you stayed with us in October we will do our best to investigate this incident to the best of our ability. Also, thank you for the kind comments on the overall property and Shirley who handles our breakfast. She is the best. Barry Eagle

My husband and I stayed here while looking at real estate in the Wilmington area. It is very clean, the staff is very helpful...and they had the most comfortable bed that we have slept in in a very long time! The hotel was also very well insulated, because we did not hear a thing all night even though the facility butts right up to Route 17. Every member of the staff greeted us with big smiles and made us feel welcome. Great value, okay breakfast. Good location if you are in the Wilmington area. We would definitely stay here again!

This HI Express location was very clean and the hotel agents were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and my room was very nice. Everything worked properly, it was clean and well maintained. There is a free breakfast buffet for guests in the morning in the lobby. The selection at the HI express locations are always good. Unfortunately the eggs and bacon were lukewarm to cold. The sausage links were overcooked and chewy. I have had many good breakfasts at Holiday Inn Express locations and this one let me down. There were plenty of cold selections, so I did have the option of cereal and yogurt.

This staff is the best collection of people I have had in a Wilmington area hotel! Because of that, the rooms are spotless, the pool is always clean and the breakfast is always perfect. The location makes it easy to grab a quick dinner, head to Wilmington or Southport or just drive to the beach. That said - it all comes back to the staff. FRIENDLY! THE MAIN REASON I SELECT THIS HOTEL OVER ANY OTHER IN THE WILMINGTON AREA.
