The Holiday Inn Resort Hotel is a perfect place for a truly super vacation. This was our second time and we have never been disappointed. The staff is very accommodating and the rooms are clean. Our room had a refrigerator, microwave, a safe, and a coffee pot! Not all the places we have stayed have all these things. The hotel...

We went to Wilmington, NC to attend a friend's wedding. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort on Wrightsville Beach.

As a 50 yr.resident of Wilmington, NC, and living 3 miles from Wrightsville Beach, I would advise anyone visiting for vacation in June, July, Aug., to spend the money and stay at a place on the beach.

The room we had faced the beach. We had a balcony with chairs, accessible via sliding door. The room was very comfortable: comfortable bed, nice desk area, in-room safe (could not open it with YouTube tricks either), refrigerator, etc. Quiet, modern, nice pool and easy access to the beach. What more could you want?

We recently spent three days in this hotel and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who enjoys a nicer place to stay.
