“Great room and rate, close to Emerald Isle”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

The hotel is very new (built within the last couple of years), and reflects modern design and amenities. The resort of Emerald Isle is about 5 miles away. Historical Swansboro, NC is literally around the corner. The rooms are very clean, and the staff are polite, professional, and prompt. The morning breakfast is complementary and offers a pretty wide variety of choices.
Whether you're there for business or leisure, you won't find a nicer place to stay in the local area.

Thank you so much for the nice comments on our hotel. We put a lot of thought into the design of the property so it's always great to receive comments on the decor. From your comments it looks like you really enjoyed yourself. Swansboro is a great small quaint historic town and really puts you in the middle of a variety of great experiences. Being only minutes from Jacksonville and Emerald Isle our property makes for a great venue to see some many different attractions. Again, thanks for the review and we hope you will come back soon.

We stayed here for a quick weekend trip to visit Emerald Isle. The regular rooms were booked, so we had to book a suite. It was so spacious and I wouldn't book a regular room again after staying there. It was definitely worth the few extra dollars. The breakfast was great and the staff was so kind to accomodate everyone for breakfast, even when it was crowded. My only suggestion would be for them to serve at least one breakfast entree without meat, even if it were just plain eggs. We were pleased to find downtown Swansboro to be a nice little town to visit too. Yana Mama's was close by and a nice place to grab a bite. It rained while we were there and the staff suggested a fun bowling alley/fun center close by. Overall, the staff made our trip much nicer, in spite of the rain.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad you were able to experience our Suites. They are extremely spacious with very tall ceilings which makes it even better. I'm glad to hear that you got to enjoy downtown Swansboro. It is so quaint and my wife thinks they have the best antique shops around. I was also pleased that our staff was able to assist you with places to go due to the rain. Hope to see you again soon. Barry Eagle

My husband and I spent a weekend here as we were attending a wedding in Emerald Isle. Despite a nasty weekend weatherwise thanks to Hurricane Sandy ,we enjoyed a very pleasant stay. The facility was bright and nicely decorated, staff was quite helpful ,and the breakfast area was well- managed. The room itself was also clean and comfortable. The location was also convenient and the menus provided by the front desk steered us to good nearby restaurants . Highly recommend this place!

The room was great, and the whole hotel is clean. The ethernet drop in my room was dead, but the wifi was decent speed. The bathroom in the room was pretty nice, with a large shower, though the temperature on the water varied. Housekeeping was good, and the provided soaps/etc were good. The bed was very comfortable and clean, and you have control of your own thermostat. Room was spacious, with a desk, your own fridge/microwave/coffeemaker. The lobby has good coffee for free all the time, and the morning breakfast was good all three days I was there. The "suit shop" is a little lame, mostly overpriced microwave food, but there's places to eat in walking distance, and a few places that deliver nearby.

Overall very good service.

Room Tip: The rooms with king-size beds are a lot larger. Check a hotel map and choose a roomnumber that'...

I spent a weekend here while looking for property in the area. The facility is beautiful, the staff highly professional and friendly, but there were a few problems with my accomodations.
I had a beautiuful king room with sofa. The design made it impossible to look directly at the TV from anywhere in this rfoom except at the work station. Flat screen TVs don't do all that well at an angle. The TV's mount did not allow it to face either the bed or the sofa.

Room Tip: All are good, no transportation or other distraction were noted during my stay.

We have traveled quite a bit nationally since my retirement and have stayed in many hotels from Charleston, SC to New Orleans to Houston and Phoenix, just to mention a few. Some of these are hotels are considered exclusive, but we have never stayed at a property where the employees were as friendly, helpful and courteous as this hotel. All of them, from the front desk, to the hospitality hostess, to housekeeping treated us like we were part of their family. The facility was way beyond anything we had anticipated and only added to the pleasure we enjoyed during Swansboro's Mullet Festival. When you come to the Crystal Coast, this is the place to stay!
