Check in and check out was smooth. The rooms have been newly renovated, which is good. The beds were extremely comfortable. The only negative comment I have to share is that I had a Do Not Disturb sign on my door and Housekeeping started knocking on the door around 9:30 am, woke me up, then I didn't have time to... More

Not a bad hotel, but not the best, is going through renovations, breakfast was normal fare. Pool was nice, beds were really comfortable. Guest services were friendly . good price for being off season.

This hotel is under renovation. It's a fabulous location but the hotel smells....musty! It's a great value and the staff was nice. Only one elevator worked and the room was clean. It was very humid outside and you could feel it inside. A great location when visiting UNC-Wilmington.

Since this hotel did not get a lot of glowing reviews I was skeptical but booked it anyhow based on the price. I was pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was very good, the room was clean and the hotel staff we're very attentive. They are renovating the building. I would definitely stay here again.

The swimming pool was great, as was the free gym. The hotel was located about 10 minutes drive from the centre of Wilmington, and there were a couple of places to eat within in walking distance. The staff were friendly and nice.

This hotel has a great location. It was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Pool was crystal clear and have small towels to dry off with. Free breakfast has a waffle station, pastries, cereal, fruits, yogurt, scrambled eggs, sausage links, coffees and juices. Rooms have a small fridge and microwave.

I booked this location through Booking.com under the premise that pets were allowed based on booking.com's site and Google.

This place is definitely not worth the money we paid for one night! Rooms, halls and elevators are all in need of cleaning and upgrades. We attempted breakfast but left and went elsewhere. I will look elsewhere next time I am in town.

Our room was humid. We did not request a change. The second floor of the hotel is undergoing renovations. The breakfast was fine. However, it did not seem that the staff member assigned was keeping up with the demand.
