No complaints at all....midrange hotel. Clean and good location on Market St. About 5 miles from downtown, but only about 5 miles from Wrightsville Beach. Check in lady was a bit snippy. We had used points for two of our rooms and she initially did not see that in her reservation, and was not sympathetic.

We had another hotel in the area booked for two night but when we arrived we simply could not stay. So needless to say, when we arrived at the Best Western on Market street and was greeted by Tobias we were delighted. Tobias made every effort to accommodate us and look after all our inquiries. He got us settled in... More

And right near the university. Ideally located, friendly knowledgeable staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Sweetest ladies run the breakfast, which features eggs, bacon or sausage, waffles, bagels, fresh fruit, coffee, etc. Really good value and good people.

This hotel made our trip to Wrightsville beach even greater! The rates are amazing, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the staff was fabulous, the breakfast was yummy, and the pool was relaxing. Will definitely return with my family if we visit Wrightsville beach again!

This hotel was very convenient to any place you want to go in the Wilmington, Wrightsville beach area, and only a 20 min ride to the South Beach area. This would include beach goers, and NCS University travelers. The room was very adequate, clean, and had a good size refrigerator. Even though it is located right next to a busy... More

We were very pleased that the Best Western accommodated the elderly relatives in our party by giving us a room on the first floor next to an outside exit. It made it so much easier to get in and out, especially when those relatives have trouble walking any distance and we were carrying their suitcases in addition to our own.... More

This BW motel is indeed a plus motel. When I first looked out my window and saw I was on the highway side I thought I was in for a poor night's sleep. That highway stays extremely busy day and night. However I noticed I did not hear the noise and that night I was not bothered by any noise... More
