Holiday Inn Express Leland-Wilmington Area

Reviewed August 25, 2014

Stayed here overnight while visiting Wilmington. It was chosen for us by a residential community we were visiting. The room was a good size with a vaulted ceiling that made it seem much larger. The bathroom was roomy and modern with all the extras you would want. When we called for a light bulb that was out, a worker came in less than 5 minutes. There is plenty of parking and the hotel is less than 10 minutes from downtown Wilmington. The breakfast buffet was ordinary but sufficient. The overall stay was quite nice.

I was here for one night in August 2014. I stayed here on business, and booked a King Executive non-smoking room, which was the same price as a standard room. There were cookies available at check in, along with a 24 hour coffee station, which were nice touches. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, not to mention spacious. The air in the room was very "breathable" (it wasn't stuffy, dry, etc.) The sleep quality was excellent -- one of the best nights of sleep I've experienced away from home. The water temperature and pressure in the shower were both great. In the morning, there was a pretty good breakfast available. I was impressed with the quality, variety, and amount of items available. There were scrambled eggs (that were very tasty, BTW), bacon strips, sausage patties, biscuits & gravy, various cereals, muffins, fruit (bananas, oranges, apples), oatmeal, yougart, muffins, pastries, a pancake station, and probably more stuff I overlooked. I thought the food was pretty good quality as well. The staff at check in, check out, and throughout my stay was always courteous and helpful.

The biggest question -- would I stay here again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it to friends wanting to stay in the area? Absolutely.

My daughter-in-law hosted a Ladies Night Out vendor party in the conference room! It was a great success. The staff McKinley and Holden were fantastic! They made sure every aspect of getting things ready was done. Afterwards, McKinley helped all of the vendors get things to their cars! I can't say enough about the great service and hospitality they showed us! Kudos!

The staff are were very friendly. The room was very clean. Lots of room. They did not complain when I ask for extra towels. Breakfast was great. My children who are picky eaters found something they would eat. If I go back to this area I will stay their again. The only problem was the small pool.

We visited Wilmington NC on our car trip along the east coast and the family chose to stay outside the city centre. We picked this hotel for our two nights stay and we were very happy with our choice. A large family room with two double beds and a sleeper sofa was a good choice for our family (two adults and two teenagers). Staff members were very nice and helpful all the way. We used the pool (indoor), fitness room, laundry room, car parking and free wifi. Breakfast was "express" type: Continental with disposable tableware. The food assortment for breakfast was sufficient for us.

We had a great three day stay at this hotel. Quiet hotel, comfortable beds. Convenient to the sights of Wilmington right across the river within a 10 minute drive. The hotel welcomed our dog for a reasonable fee. Met some nice guests at the free breakfast. Within walking distance of a few restaurants and stores.

Brunswick Forest made our reservation at this hotel so we could evaluate the area for our retirement. We were absolutely impressed with everything: spacious spotless rooms, comfy queen beds, ample firm & soft pillows, a sofa bed, wi-fi, frig, microwave, and flat screen tv with FoxNews & HBO! On the 1st floor was a hefty hot breakfast bar, coffee 24/7, fitness center, & a heated salt water pool where we could relax in between events scheduled during our very busy visit. Many thanks to all who made our visit a perfect one!
