Courtyard Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach
Ranked #14 of 45 Hotels in Wilmington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is a good business travel hotel. I would stay here again.

Pros:
- Very quiet
- Clean room
- Comfortable bed
- Very nice lobby
- Great snack bar/coffee shop offers a good, quick breakfast

Cons:
- Don't let the name fool you, this hotel is nowhere near the beach
- Tucked away on a side street, might be hard to find without GPS
- Door to my room was very creaky and loud, needed some oil
- Shower was not very nice, shower head sprayed in all direcitons, shower curtain rod was loose and sagging
- Internet connection was very spotty, disconnected every 10 minutes
- Room was a little small
- The "home theater" in the lobby was tuned to Fox News. Seems like they could pick a less polarizing channel for a public space, especially during the presidential election season.
- The Heater/AC was a bit loud and cycled on and off frequently

Hello jwc3. Thank you for the thorough review of your recent stay at our Courtyard property. Certainly we appreciate the 4 out of 5 rating and the "Nice Hotel" review title. We’re glad you enjoyed many aspects of our hotel, including our lobby Bistro serving Starbucks. I’d like to address a few of your comments…Not knowing the exact room you were in, I can’t comment on your room “cons”, but I can reassure you that we appreciate your feedback and take these points very seriously. Feel free to contact our GM to let us know what room number you were in during your stay. Our city location descriptor is not meant to mislead our guests. Our central location just off of Market Street and College Road is directly between historic downtown Wilmington and beautiful Wrightsville Beach. If you look at the two other Marriott-branded properties near us, they also have the same “Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach” descriptor. Regarding your issue with our high speed Internet connection we recently upgraded our speed throughout the hotel and have had no issues. In fact all feedback, especially from our business travelers, has been overwhelmingly positive. As far as the channel selection of our “Home Theater” TV in the lobby, there is a remote control for guests to select any channel they would like to watch. Typically the TV is tuned to the Weather Channel, ESPN, Golf Channel, CNN or Fox News. We’re sorry that you felt that Fox News was inappropriate. When travel brings you back to Wilmington / Wrightsville Beach, we hope you choose to stay with us again. Safe travels!

This hotel is attractive and immaculately maintained. The location is convenient to I-40, the UNCW campus, and straightforward access to downtown and beaches. The courtyard area has a nice pool and the rooms have very comfortable beds!

We stayed one night in connection with a UNCW event. We received an excellent discounted rate in connection with the event. The hotel is conveniently located to the campus, but a little hard to find because the turn off is immediately to the right of an overpass/bridge and the hotel sign is difficult to see past foliage. We had a 2nd floor double. The room was quiet, nicely decorated, small but comfortable space. I did find the bed comfortable--not as comfortable as a Sheraton or Hyatt, but was very pleased for this class hotel. Did not like the bar/cafe set up open to the lobby myself, as I have stated in other Courtyard reviews, but that is not a problem specific to this hotel. Desk staff was friendly & helpful. Bar/cafe staff looked unhappy to be there. I was worried that breakfast would be slow coming due to the lack of staff and the number of guests going to the same event, but our order was taken quickly and came without delay. I would recommend staying for an overnight--any longer and I would stay on the beach/river for more fun, but this hotel served the purpose well at a much better rate without a 2 night minimum stay requirement.

Thank you GalacticTrotter for the thorough review of your recent stay with us. We certainly appreciate your business. We're pleased that you were pleased with our hotel and agree with you regarding the foliage near our signage along College Road. That is a city / DOT issue that has been addressed...Next time UNCW-related travel brings you back to town, we hope you choose to stay with us again. Go Seahawks!

This hotel was newly renovated and it looks great! The room was nice - beautifuly decorated and painted. The bed was way too hard - and I didn't sleep. The one thing that they could have done better was the shower - the caulking was old and grungy looking. Nice hotel otherwise.

Thank you irishfaith for taking the time to submit a review of your recent stay with us. We appreciate your business knowing that you have many choices in the area. Sorry that you did not find our new beds to your liking. Bed firmness is a very subjective issue; some love the beds, some do not...next time travel brings you back to the area; we hope you choose to stay with us again.

Ok place but I agree with reviews that the construction was pretty sloppy on the re-do. Seams on carpet coming up and poorly repainted trim. My bathtub is tiny,old fashioned and in a closet of a bathroom. Be advised there is no free breakfast and coffee station has limited hours. I usually stay at the Residence Inn by Marriott in nearby Landall which is far superior and much closer to the beach by the way. If I wasn't so tired I would probably ck out here and go there, I accidently booked this place over the phone by mistake. Next time for sure.

Hello lab12345...We believe our convenient location between historic downtown and Wrightsville Beach affords our guests the best of both worlds here in Wilmington. We're sorry that you mistakenly booked your room at our Courtyard property. As you pointed-out, there are differences between extended stay hotels and business-class hotels such as a Courtyard. The entire Courtyard brand now features The Bistro; a full service food outlet that serves a fresh breakfast with Starbucks drinks and a dinner menu with full service lounge. Safe travels!

Our stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Wilmington this past weekend was spectacular. Firstly, the rooms and bathrooms are immaculate, fresh, and comfortable. The bedding was clean and really first-rate. The staff was friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out was super easy. It was a quiet. clean, and relaxing place to spend our time! We will be return customers! Also, super easy access to and from the airport! The best deal in town!

Room Tip: Just ask at the desk for a quiet room! They are more than happy to find one for you. The second floo...
