“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I loved the location, just off Market St convenient to everything but set back from the main road, nice and quiet. You can walk over to Target and restaurants and it's a 5 min drive to UNCW. TV's have been updated to LG flatscreen. Room was clean, carpet seemed a bit worn though. Comfortable bed. My room had fridge & microwave though lacked in closet space, which was ok for me. A/C worked well and was quiet. Pet friendly, great value, nice staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have microwave and fridge, so check if that is important to you.

I've stayed here several times and booked through Expedia. The price was right and the rooms are comfortable if not exactly "designer". There is a small fridge and microwave but the TVs are dated. There are a few premium channels. There is a pool but don't expect to do laps. There is also a small workout room with a couple of weight machines, a stationary bike and a tread mill (a TV is in there, too). It is walking distance to several good restaurants and across the street from Target if you want to eat fresh food in your room. I recommend Hieronymus Seafood Restaurant on Market. It is only a few hundred yards down a side access road next to The Waffle Shop. The morning breakfast is free and you can make your own fresh waffles. You are about a 15 minute drive from the beach and about 10 minutes from Cape Fear River. Beware of the red light cameras on Market.

My experiences at this Jameson Inn have been nothing but good. The staff was nice and helpful. The rooms were more than adequate and very clean. Safety was not a concern at this location. Breakfast waffles with strawberries were wonderful.

First of all, we booked through Expedia and certainly were NOT treated as 2nd rate visitors. Additional fees for pets are clearly stated on third party websites, you gotta read the fine print. We chose this hotel because of the location to restaurants, quick access to Wrightsville Beach and price cause we are always on a budget. Our room was spotless, smelled fresh, comfortable and quiet. The lobby is quaint, the pool was clean and the staff was very friendly. Had no problems getting the WIFI signal. The continental breakfast included malt waffles - you make them, orange and apple juice, cereal, bagels, boiled eggs, toast etc. Very good way to start the day on the beach. If we do another trip to the beach we will certainly stay here again. Great value for the dollar, plenty of parking.

We stayed in this hotel for our vacation in Wilmington and we thought it was excellent. Not a single problem. Its somewhat a distance to the downtown area... especially in the traffic....but it was clean and quiet. The price was excellent and there are places to eat all around the area. I would highly recommend this hotel.

1. Priceline booked customers only get the THIRD FLOOR SMOKING ROOMS.

When I requested a non-smoking room, the front desk female stated that was not possible because, "That's what you get for reserving online." Message: Priceline customers (possibly other reservations such as Hotwire, etc) are treated as a second class citizens by being assigned the least desirable location and rooms.

I even mentioned that I had allergy to tobacco but her response - more or less - was that's your tough luck, that if i wanted a non-smoking room then I should have paid the rack rate. Hum...

2. Charged ADDITIONAL $15/night for having a pet (totaling unexpected $30 charge for two days).

No where did it state that there were any pet fees when I booked the room. I called them after I received my Priceline hotel and inquired if pets were OK because the hotel website does not mention it or the extra charge. Was informed that pets were fine but even then was not informed of any additional cost until when I checked in.

Such hidden costs need to be stated clearly and up front; not charged when checking in.

Room Tip: If traveling with a pet, you are FORCED to the SMOKING, THIRD FLOOR. The TV is the old 28" tub...

Dear TKDgladiator2;

Thank you for your reponse regarding your recent stay with us. We always strive to provide our guests with a postive experience and are very sorry we were not able to do so for you. When you book through the promotional web sites, the room type and smoking preference are not guaranteed and are assigned on the day of arrival. Unfortunately, we cannot always grant special requests upon arrival. The best way to guarantee your room type and smoking preference is to book directly with the hotel.

We do allow pets and have been charging a nightly pet fee for several years and I am sorry that you were not advised of this when calling the hotel. Our staff is usually diligent on letting our guests know that we charge a pet fee and I apologize if we neglected to let you know in advance. We hope you will give us another chance on a future visit to Wilmington.

Sincerely,

Stephanie
