“Best Stay For the Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2010

I have stayed in this motel several times. The staff is friendly and accomodating to the needs of the guest. The location is convenient for access to the beach or downtown area. Restaurants and shops are all in walking distance. The facility is well maintained. The rooms are clean and well equipped.

After reading all the previous reviews I felt pretty comfortable making a reservation here. Plus they accepted our small dog for an equally small fee of $10.00. I have to tell you that we stayed in room 106 and it was awful..The room smelled of something along the lines of sweaty dirty socks, or worse. We went to the front desk and got a bottle of spray deodorizer but that didn't help at all. The place was terribly loud and getting a nights sleep was next to impossible. Look I know that this is not supposed to be the Ritz Carlton but geez.. I would never stay here again.;.; And I would love to know how after all these glowing reviews my experience was so bad...Even our dog gave it a 4 paws down.

On the plus side... The staff is very friendly and nice... The breakfast is exactly what you would expect at a hotel of this quality. Muffins, bagels, toast and cereal. The coffee was very good.

Wilmington, during the season can get expensive. If you want a clean, and safe place, with a friendly staff, then stay at the Comfort Inn in Wilmington.
Just like a big hotel the rooms have micro\frig and high speed internet. The breakfast was presented well and was plenty.
I stay there when ever I am in Wilmington.

The personnel were pleasant. The General Manager was friendly, accomodating and eager to hear of any problems or suggestions.

The room was pleasant and included amenities, such as a refrigerator and hair dryer.

The location was centrally located between the university and old downtown Wilmington ( which is very nice), as well as convenient to numerous restaurants, stores, etc.

I appreciated most meeting the manager who introduced himself to me, on his own accord, and was eager to please. What I liked least was that some of the towels had a mildly unpleasant odor, which the manager thanked me for reporting, and then reported to the housekeeping manager immediately.

I was at a recent conference held at UNCW and stayed for 4 nights at the Comfort Inn-University. The room was modern and comfortable, and very quiet. Rooms include a complementary breakfast which was really very good, much better than the typical stale muffins and watered-down juice that most budget-priced motels give you. Overall, this is an excellent hotel if you are looking for something near UNCW.

This hotel has a great staff from the cleaning folks all the way to management. The desk was very helpful with directions and maps. The cleaning people we met in the hallways were courteous and all had smiles on their faces which tells me they like where they work and which also tells me there is good management at this hotel. The room was clean and the bed was very good. The hotel is in a great location for restaurants and getting to downtown. Very good value for the price.

Thank You,

I will be staying at this hotel in the future.2
