Great location, Twenty minutes to historic Wilmington,twenty minutes to the beaches. Very easy to find, We found the staff more than helpful. The continental breakfast had a great selection to start tha day. We were going to stay one night, and turned it into two !!

My three daughters (ages 7, 12 and 13) and I found our stay here very enjoyable. The hotel is clean, professionally staffed and offers pleasant amenities. Good housekeeping services.

Amenities: Nicely-designed indoor pool and hot tub spa. Small exercise room with decent equipment. Laundry room. Pleasant breakfast area. Business computer nook in the lobby was a nice back up when my laptop decided to get a little cranky.

Location: BW Plus Wilmington is nicely located, about half way between Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach. It's a 10 minute drive either way.

The girls looked forward to pool-time at the end of the day and even spent a little time in the workout room. There were several families visiting at the same time which made pool time a little more fun for the girls. There was a nice balance of play and respectful distance -- I think the spa's professional-leaning design helps set the mood for this kind of balance.

Overall we were very satisfied. I plan on staying here again on future trips to the Wilmington coastal area.

The hotel in Wilmington North Carolina was nice. We wished the pool was open til 10pm but it was open til 9pm sharp. The resturant right next store has amazing dinners and the staff is awesome also. That was a plus for this hotel. The employees here are very friendly and helpful. The hotel I thought was in a great location, there are gas stations, shopping, and the beach within minutes.

Being a hotel employee makes my standards for hotels a little higher than the norm. But at the BW we stayed ar a ciuple weeks ago was perfect. The front desk ladies for really nice, Casey helped us out with any and everything we asked for, and the room was spotless whenever we came back the following day. Definately impressed with everything we saw. Only downside was listening to the manager speaking to his employees. It is best to be a leader in a world full of bosses. But Otherwise it was a perfect stay! Thanks for everything casey!

Property was really good, Staff friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. Breakfast was good and varied, the business center was well stocked and easy to use. The enclosed pool area was a welcome benefit, the jacuzzi was a welcome extra after a long drive

We had a very pleasant stay. The staff were helpful and the breakfast bar had a decent selection. The pool and rooms are typical of more expensive hotels. The location was closer to the beach than where we'd stayed previously in Wilmington.

Nothing wrong with the hotel itself, I was just down the road on a job that lasted until 6am and I have been up since 4:30am the previous morning (up for over 24 hours) to had to be back to the job by 4pm that same day. I live 2 hours away and I was afraid to drive any further for fear of wrecking. I was charged a full day from 6am to 11am even though it was only for 5 hours. I ended up staying another night since I was going to be dead asleep at 11am and couldn't get up to check out. I worked until 2pm the next night. My point is, there should be flexiblity in their hours of check in and out for people with unusual working hours. Especially the work I was doing was bringing revenue in. Found out after the fact some people I worked with stopped there but didn't stay when they found out what they would be charged, they found a hotel down the road who didn't charge a full day. It was an expensive lesson learned. OH and for a hotel in a coastal city to not except pets is wrong.
