“Newlywed Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

My new husband and I spent our wedding night & honeymoon at this Best Western. I also was able to check in early to dress for our beach wedding. The manager went above and beyond to make sure that our every need was met. The room was wonderful, clean and had every amenity we could've hoped for. There was even a clock that had a "white noise" feature, to drown out unwanted noise from outside our room. We stayed in the king size/hot tub room. Money very well spent! The only glitch in our stay was the fact that our toilet quit working. We reported it to the front desk as we left for dinner; when we returned it was fixed. The breakfast buffet was much better than most "free breakfast" hotels. In addition to the regular fare there was also waffles, eggs and hot cereal. The location is perfect, only minutes from the beach and every type of food or shopping nearby. We will surely be back, especially since this hotel will always hold a special place for us.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel, as the front side faces a busy road. The back is much...

This is a nice hotel, centrally located to downtown Wilmington, UNCW, and Wrightsville Beach. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping centers close by and it's easy to get back on the highway. The rooms are clean with fridge, HDTV, iron, a comfortable bed and wireless internet. Breakfast was above average with choice of cereal, some hot food, waffles, toast, juice, milk amongst other things. Overall a nice place to stay at a decent price.

Room Tip: If you can book through Expedia or Hotwire you may get a lower price.

My husband and I stayed here in November 2011. The room was very clean and the decor was nice as well. The restaurant next door was simply amazing! Would definitely stay at this location again. The girl at the front desk was awesome. She has the perfect personally.

Now that this is a Best Western it is very clean, the pool was great (although a little cool). The towels and sheets were good quality and the staff was pleasant. Convenient to Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach also fairly close. Shopping and restaurants nearby.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

We tried another stay here due to the renovations,and favorable comments since last summer. We got a manager's special of a king room with a jacuzzi tub. The room was clean nicely furnished,very comfortable bed,refrig and microzap, and flat screen tv.Good work center with wired or wireless internet free. Didn't use the pool or hot tub, but both appeared clean,and lots of towels were available in that area. The breakfast was a little sparse but had fruit cereal(no yogurt), make your own waffles or biscuits and gravy,bagels,and a limited assortment of sweet rolls,plus coffee,juice,and milk. Certainly enough to get your day started without an empty stomach, I guess pretty typical BW fare. My one complaint and major suggestion is to get a room on the back of the hotel. The facility sits very close to a major highway,and a traffic light(s) and you hear lot of traffic noise,especially early in the AM,even with our "white noise" machine we always take, running strong. However, in the rear rooms,the traffic noise will be far more muffled if heard at all. Certainly not an upscale hotel, but for the cost,clean and comfortable and convenient for restaurants and some shopping. I'll stay again IF I can get a rear room next time!

Room Tip: Get a room on the back side if at all possible!

We were visiting the Monkey Junction area of Wilmington and enjoyed the wonderful pool. It is clean, up-to-date and close to shopping and only 10 minutes to Carolina Beach.
