So how many of you would love to take a vacation but can't afford the price of staying at the beach. Well here's an option that my wife and I took and we throughly enjoyed it at probably less than half the price. We stayed at the Hampton Inn on Old Eastwood Rd. A very nice relaxing hotel with a...

Stephen R, Manager at Hampton Inn Wilmington-University Area/Smith Creek Station, responded to this review

Hello Stephen M, With our location being on 5 miles to the beach and a short 5-10 minute drive to the beach and downtown, it is way more cost efficient, compared to staying on the beach. Our complimentary hot breakfast is a guest favorite, and our complimentary guest reception on Tuesdays and Thursdays are always a good time. Thank you... More

This hotel met all of our needs for our one night stay in Wilmington. The desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The location was good, close to UNCW. We will definitely stay again on our next trip

We stayed in room 228 which was an oversized room on the corner that overlooked the pool. This room is also either next to or below laundry facilities because at 8 am Sunday morning, we could hear the washing machine rattling. So, if you want to sleep in on a weekend stay, do not choose this room. Everything was beautifully... More

This is a "typical" Hampton Inn. By that I mean it's excellent! The staff is friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is great with lots of choices. The rooms are clean, quiet and well equipped. The beds are incredibly comfortable. There's plenty of free parking. The complimentary WiFi is reliable and works well. It's very modern and well kept.

Great atmosphere. They allowed us to check in early. I also loved the way they had drinks out everyday. The first day was sweet tea and the second day was a red punch. The happy hour from 5-7 was a great addition as well.

Extremely clean hotel, service fantastic, complimentary breakfast ok. Kind of expensive, $187/night for a room with 2 queen size beds. Very close proximity to UNCW. Staff friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel and will return here in the future.

Check in staff was efficient and courteous. The rooms are clean and, even though it was extremely hot and humid, the room was consistently cool and comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful, a nice variety of beverages and food. The breakfast attendants were not especially busy, guests had to wipe off tables and restock items. That was the only negative to...
