What makes a good getaway place. Well, I don't know for sure, but here's what it is for me: small quiet crowds, great food, uncrowded beach, plenty of sun, quiet nights listening to the ocean breath, good books and magazines, great help. To meet your needs, and more good food. If you go, please get the shrimp and grits. I... More

Took my mom here for a vacay with my two boys. She's disabled and the hotel was very accessible. Lifts for the pools and hot tubs. Plenty of fast elevators. The beach entrances weren't wheelchair accessible but that's pretty common. I wasn't surprised, but it might've been nice. Wifi was very good and the hotel restaurants were good. Not too... More

My friend and I stayed here for a girls weekend and it was the perfect place for our escape. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and it had great views. It's located right on the beach but if you prefer to lounge by the pool they have a great bar with superior service. Room... More

We had four rooms here with my extended family. We have been to Wrightsville the past four years at a different "resort" farther down the road, and opted for H.I. this year after too many bad experiences. We won't be going back to the other place. H.I. is situated much closer to the ocean - no endless walk over burning... More

We spent three nights here in late June. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel had easy access to the beach, indoor and outdoor pools, exercise room, video arcade, small store, kid's activities, great restaurant, a smaller refreshment stand near the pool and was overall a pleasant stay. It has rocking chairs on a balcony over looking the beach,... More

Looking for direct beach access, large outdoor (and indoor) pool and great food, then this is the place for you. I consider this destination a mini resort - all the activities and accolades of a full resort - just on a very small scale.

We prefer to eat outdoors on their deck on a nice day. I like their calamari appetizer. You overlook their outdoor pool and ocean. Reasonable prices. Tables are not crowded together. Take note of the fine wires strung outside from upper floors. I asked what they are there for. Waitress said....so you can zip line into the pool. 😳. She... More

Thank you for choosing us Mroosik! There have been many fascinating stories made up about the fishing lines and that is a new one!
