Richard and Polly are super nice people. This is a great spot in downtown. Every morning there is coffee and breakfast downstairs. Easy walks in an area of historic homes. Many restaurants and bars nearby.

Loved the room, very clean, quiet, safe, and good parking area! The location is excellent you can walk to everything! Loved the morning breakfast it was delicious. This is the only place I will stay in Wilmington, and will try all the other themed decorated rooms on each future visit.

Front Street Inn in located in the historic area of Wilmington in a building originally built by the Salvation Army. It is one block off the Riverwalk, so it is very convenient to some very good restaurants, and not too far from museums and other historic sites. The Inn Keepers, Richard and Polly Salinetti, have owned and run the Inn... More

This Bed & Breakfast is located in downtown Wilmington, so it's quaint and convenient. We parked and were able to walk to the shops and restaurants. We stayed one night in the Hemingway Room. The room was on the second floor, large and comfortable with a nice balcony facing Front Street. The couple that operate the Inn are very accommodating... More

I would echo the vast majority of recent comments, so I'll be brief. Richard and Polly clearly care about providing a great stay, and our one-night visit was flawless. We stayed in the Georgia O'Keefe room, which was spacious and colorful. As has been said before, the photos don't begin to do this place justice--much nicer in person. Everything was... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at From Street Inn in June for our anniversary. Though we had to arrive late due to the distance to travel after work, Richard was happy to assist us with after hours move in. The homemade breakfasts were incredible (I consistently went back for seconds). Unlike typical B&Bs, the Inn didn't... More

Each room is unique and named for a famous person. The Molly Brown has a full kitchen. The bedroom is a separate room. Lots of space to relax. The free breakfasts are so tasty. Each morning there is fresh baked quiche, pastry, muffins and specialty bread. There is fresh fruit of the season, juices, cereals, coffee and toast. During the... More

We chose the Front Street Inn for the location - which did not disappoint, in walking distance from everything we wanted to see and do in downtown Wilmington. We could have spent the day with the staff, excellent hosts! We tend to look to the chain hotels for our travel, but enjoyed our pick of this B&B. The room (I... More
