Just stayed at Waterway Lodge this week. Never been to Wrightsville Beach before and I am so glad we didn't pay attention to the negative reviews. Bright, fresh-smelling, clean rooms. Remodeled kitchenette with small fridge,excellent A/C, lighting and seaside decor. I don't have a pet but I wanted a central, economical location so I was pleasantly surprised with the clean, landscaped exterior: fresh white and blue paint, clean pool and hourly "drawbridge show" from the balcony.Elevator if you can't manage stairs.This is a great old-style "motor lodge" with friendly local people available if you need directions or towels. No onsite restaurants, but just cross the street or drawbridge and you can have your pick.Recommend "CauseWay Cafe" for breakfast!,Wings for beach stuff,Harris Teeter for groceries/wine and sandwiches.Gr8 vacation.
Rooms 222 and 227 well appointed and clean.
