I stayed here for three days on a trip to visit Wrightsville Beach. The staff was friendly and the check in was fast. We checked in during evening reception time so food and beverages were available. I love Homewood Suites because they serve a complimentary light meal (not just pretzels :-). Our first evening there, we had prime rib, mashed potatoes with gravy, steamed vegetables, dinner rolls, and salad. There were also chips and salsa, as well as goldfish crackers and other various snacks. Beverage choices include beer, wine, soft drinks, lemonade, and tea. The manager stopped by each table during the reception and he actually engaged with the guests and spent time talking to us. This was a nice touch and it made the place feel more like a casual bed and breakfast than a hotel.
Our room was spacious. It was on the first floor, at the farthest end of the hallway away from the front desk. Although it was not a suite with a separate bedroom, it was still roomy and included a kitchenette with full size refrigerator, cooktop, cabinets, dishwasher, etc. (see photos). The bed was comfortable and I liked the decor. The front desk staff gave our children toys at breakfast the following morning which was another friendly touch that made me LOVE this hotel. They seem to truly appreciate the guests. Housekeeping came daily and they were fast and efficient. Our room was quiet. A few loud children in the hallway but that was no fault of the hotel.
The only drawback was that the pool had a funky smell coming from it the whole time we were there so we didn't get in. It didn't bother us though because we went to the beach daily, which was about a 5-10 minute drive. The Mayfaire-an upscale shopping mall-is a comfortable walking distance to the hotel so we also walked there twice in the evenings during our stay. It has a movie theatre, restaruants, etc. There is also a mini golf course next to the pool which my children LOVED!
Overall, this place gets five stars from me. Great for families as well as single/business travelers. I will definitely return.
request a room away from the elevator for quiet.
