Best Western Plus Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach
Ranked #10 of 45 Hotels in Wilmington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went down to the beach for the weekend. We had a great time! The staff was excellent and very friendly! The room was clean and fresh. I'm usually very skeptical about BW, but this one was nice and renovated. The breakfast was good and there were hot items on the bar. Overall we had a very good stay and impress!

Location adjacent to Costco is great for gassing up before hitting the road.

The hotel room was well furnished with king-size bed, fridge, microwave, flat screen TV with a "fresh remote," and free wi-fi. In the nice feature category, the lamp on the nightstand next to the bed had the on/off switch in the base so it was easy to turn on/off from the bed. We had a nonsmoking room, but did smell smoke in the hallway.

The Breakfast Room is large with plenty of tables and booths and a large flat screen TV. The morning we were there, we met Doris who was managing the breakfast area. She seemed to never stop replenishing omelets, bacon, coffee, cleaning tables, attending to special requests. Hope they know what a gem of an employee they have – both for productivity and customer service. Though this was our first stay at this hotel it will be our stopping place whenever we pass through town.

Picked this motel off a list of recommended places for a car show. When we checked in they charged us $44 dollars less than the price I was originally quoted. (This without asking for a lower rate). The room was clean, comfortable and and even had a microwave in addition to the refrigerator & coffee maker. Front desk, housekeeping and all of the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was also great. The location has lots if great places to eat within walking distance. We will stay there again for sure!!

I have stayed at the Best Western University Inn 3 different times with multiple night visits each stay. For the price (around $79/night in August, February, and April) I find the hotel to be convenient to everything you may come to the area for (short drive to UNCW, nearby to beaches, right down the road from downtown Wilmington).

The rooms are clean and well kept, and the showers are hot. The bed is comfortable with a lot of pillows and the air conditioner gets real cold and STAYS ON which I love. I love cold rooms and hate when AC units go on and off throughout the night. The WIFI was fast and reliable which is a plus. Each morning there are different varieties of breakfast items out at the buffet to go with the standard cereals / waffle maker / breads etc.

For business, I have enjoyed my stays here because its clean and quiet and a great breakfast in the morning. However, like most Best Western's, I am disappointed in the fitness offering. For being a Plus, it would be nice to have something more than what would otherwise be a guest room. This is not a deal breaker, but I value my workouts when traveling and comparing the Plus brand to Hiltons / Starwoods / and Hyatt lower ends it would go a long way into looking at expanding the fitness offerings as a lot of hotels are doing these days.
