“Excellant Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This was my first time staying at this hotel. The outside of the hotel impressed me. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and made you feel welcome. This hotel was a short distance from the business that I was working at and the access to the interstate was great.
This was one of the best Holiday Inns that I've stayed at and I'm usually in a Holiday Inn property at least 20 times a month.
The only complaint that I might have is the pillows. They could have been a little firmer.

Other than the pillows a "Great Hotel".

Very average Holiday Inn. Hallway is worn and smells like old cigarette smoke. I stayed in an alcove room, so the space was good with fridge, but the furniture and bath were very worn and tired looking. Everyone in the lobby who had cell service with AT&T complained of no service in the hotel...true for me too! So, if you have AT&T and need service keep on driving! Not many options in the area so I moved on to Wilmington where there are many options for hotels. The Mad Boar restaurant next door is really good, but probably would not stay here again. Not terrible, but a little below average from the hotels I usually stay in.

Stayed here for a party next door at the Mad Boar. The $99 standard rate would have been a bit pricey, but fortunately we got a discount because of attending the party.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

The room was comfortable, and very clean. Sleep quality was good, but I was awakened by the heavy-footed occupant of the room above me.

Breakfast consisted of the usual Danish/bagels, plus sausage, pre-cooked eggs, pancakes, and biscuits with sausage gravy. Served in a very nice and clean dining area. I'd rate it as 8/10.

The ONLY coke machine was broken, and my wife could not get sufficient hot water for a shower.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor.

My son and I attended a funeral in the area and reserved one night at this property with two rooms...alcove suites....from check in to check out the staff was most accommodating and friendly....On the morning of the funeral I checked with the front desk to see if we could extend check out time for one of the suites so we would have a place to change after the graveside service....Johnny was most accommodating and did what he could to assist us with the request...I please to deal with folks like him as well as the other desk assistants working throughout the time that we were there.....the morning breakfast was great as was the lady who took care of the breakfast bar......I would have no problem recommending this property..

I've been coming to this motel four or five times a year for over 20 years. The rates are reasonable and the rooms large and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is located next to the Mad Boar restaurant and banquet hall which attracts a lot of Saturday weddings but its always been quiet. Lacks a pool so kids may be disappointed, but has a nice gym and business center. Just off the interstate but no noticeable road noise.Landscaped with well trimmed shrubs and year round flowers.
I recommend highly for business travelers or adults on their own.
Note - it is located across the street from the consistently most expensive gas in North Carolina.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back probably the quietest. In the front - the best cell phone reception

Arrived in the middle of a heavy thunderstorm and immediately I noticed this property was a bit different than most other (dull) HIE property layouts. It was a very nice and welcoming change. The girl at check-in was very friendly, polite and efficient, she offered a complimentary suite upgrade, which of course I accepted. The suite was very spacious, not the newest or the most stylish in terms of furniture, but still in good condition, comfortable and clean. My only complaint is the ice machine located right across the hallway. It could be heard throughout the night, when guests were pouring ice from it. The breakfast room is very nice and different too, but somewhat limited in seating capacity. All in all a very good stay, just what you expect from a HIE.

Room Tip: try getting a room/suite away from the ice machine

this is right off I 40, half hour from Wilmington Old Town. The restaurant next door looked nice but closed Mon. & Tuesday ( my 2 night in the area). Requested frig as no decent restaurants for 1/2 hour away, no frig or microwave available. 2nd floor was no smoking, but ice machine broke so down to lobby for ice to keep drinks cold. If you wander into Wallace avoid Country Kitchen, a buffet of over fried food.$104. a night. After 2 nights I moved to Hilton Riverside in Wilmington, only $91 on water, steak house and starbucks on site, actually on riverfront sidewalk to explore old town. An easy drive to Burgaw, Wallace and the airport. I really messed up staying and eating in Wallace! Hope this helps someone else...

Room Tip: 2nd floor no smoking
