My husband and I have stayed here twice now. But this time our battery in our car died. The wonderful husband of one of the ladies took my husband 30 minutes into Wilmington to the auto center to purchase another battery. As if that wasn't enough, he then whipped out his tools and showed my husband how to install it.... More

We stayed at the Beachside Inn for two nights and had a reasonably good stay here. It is slightly away from the main city and so you need to drive around a little bit to get to the major attractions. But, the place is clean, quiet and inexpensive. The air-conditioning made a lot of noise and so, we chose to... More

It was the only place with a vacancy. It's bare bones, no frills at best. I tried to turn on the lamp and the fixture flopped over in my hand. I could have been shocked by the exposed wires. I had to reassemble the lamp to make it safe. I don't understand the reviews that say it's a good deal... More

Having family in the Wilmington area, we have opted to stay here several times. It's a nice place that is reasonably clean, it's older so it's doesn't have a pristine feel, and the furnishings and such make it feel dated, but it has "old beach" character. It's reasonably priced, especially for a place so convenient to the beach...there is a... More

The hotel is very close to a public access boardwalk with a shaded gazebo, and the beach there is lovely and never too crowded. You can avoid traffic by walking to coffee shops, mexican restaurant, pizza parlors, steak restaurant, bar, pancake house, etc. The rooms are simple, but in my three stays there, they have always been clean. That's all... More

My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to the beach on July 4th weekend. One of the few places we found with an opening was the Beachside Inn. We knew it wasn't on the beach, and we knew it had a king-sized bed, frig, and microwave. Since we had never stayed in Carolina Beach before, we... More

My husband and I stayed at Beachside Inn July 5-9, 2008. The staff, Sue and Wanda, were great and very friendly. We stayed in room 26 and then we had family come down and they stayed in room 22. Both rooms were clean and we were just steps from the ocean. We got married on the beach on the morning... More

If you prefer the essence of the beach ambiance to the high-rise, try the ineffable Beachside Inn. How glad we were to find such a place in the flurry of Ramadas and Hiltons, the impersonal towers to the homey inn! The clean rooms, the hospitable staff, the garden! It was lovely, and just a stone's throw to the beach access.... More
