“Middle of the road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

I don't really have much to say about this Courtyard so apologies if this review is not super helpful. Check In was fine. My room was neat and clean enough, a little dated perhaps. Location is off of a busy access road. We went into town for dinner and ate at Circa 1922 which had a menu of a wide array of choices and the waiter was great. Lobby gets the job done in the morning with the Starbucks coffee and limited breakfast choices. Observation that there are a lot of families who stay here for close access to the beach.

Thank you 143143 for choosing to stay at our Courtyard Wilmington. We’re pleased that your guest experience was fine, including our Starbucks outlet located in The Bistro. Sorry that you felt that the rooms were a bit dated…we went through a total renovation, including all new guest rooms, two years ago. In fact, our hotel color scheme is the only one of its kind in the Courtyard system. Next time travel brings you back to Wilmington, we hope that you choose to again stay with us. By the way, nice choice for dinner downtown.

My wife and I stayed here for a vacation about a week ago. Never realized the Courtyard Marriott's had been going through remodels nationally, because this one looked incredible. Rooms were clean and the service was great. Brenda was working at the Bistro (has a Starbuck's too!) and my wife and 2 yr old ordered food. She was helpful, delivered it to our room. Then even made a second trip on her own to bring our little boy a snack/drink without even charging us because she thought he would like a little snack before bed. WORLD CLASS! Would recommend, would return, and Brenda is great!

Room Tip: Request closest to the lobby; big hotel and we were on the other side of it, hence a lot of walking...

This was our first trip to the Wilmington area. We selected this hotel on the basis of a really good rate (Hotels.com), good location (convenient to both Wrightsville Beach and downtown Wilmington) and the Marriott reputation. We weren't disappointed. The hotel and room were very "up-to-date" and clean, the staff was very courteous and helpful, and the free breakfast was a plus. Would definitely recommend this hotel unless someone was wanted to be right in Wilmington or on Wrightsville Beach (and pay for the privilege).

We spent two nights for a weekend getaway in prime beach season. We have stayed here before but it had been several years.

Looks like they have remodeled. However, the hotel feels like an old hotel that has had some cosmetic updates. Check in was easy. However, later we asked the front desk for suggestions on a seafood restaurant. This is a beach town and they had no clue. I expected there to be a restaurant list but the only reply was to assist us with searching the internet on the kiosk.

There were some maintenance issues. The rear entry door near the rooms was broken for both nights we were there. This allowed anyone one to freely walk into the corridor without swiping in. This is not great but did not seem too bad since the area is nice.

The best thing for this hotel is the location. We love the location due to its proximity to the Beach, River Front Downtown Wilmington and the restaurant retail strip. However, there are bunch of hotels nearby. Next time we may try one of the other newer brands since this one is getting a little old.

I would suggest letting price dictate the choice here. Again this location is great but there are a lot of hotels within one mile. If you love Courtyard Marriott this is for you. If not go with the brand you like in the same area with the best price.

Room Tip: We were first floor facing the courtyard and pool, there were no problems with noise.

Thank you jojobnc for choosing to stay with us. We’re certainly happy that you enjoyed our fantastic location as it relates to being centrally located between Wrightsville Beach and historic downtown Wilmington. You are right regarding our renovation. The entire hotel was renovated two years ago. This includes all new guest rooms, public space and the addition of The Bistro which features Starbucks drinks and is open to the public for breakfast and dinner. We hope you had a chance to enjoy our fresh and healthy dinner or drinks in The Bistro. We’re surprised to read that our front desk associate was not able to recommend a local seafood restaurant to you but I see that you had a nice dinner in Wrightsville Beach. The associate in question is new to the area. We apologize for this inconvenience. If you read our previous reviews, you can see that our front desk team receives wonderful comments on a regular basis. As far as the back door issue; this has since been corrected. We strive for excellence in everything we do here. We hope that you opt to give us another chance to earn your business, next time you visit charming Wilmington-Wrightsville Beach.

Just a quick shout-out to Pam who was at the front desk last night. She went above and beyond to solve our problem. This hotel is quiet, clean, nothing ostentatious. Staff makes it outstanding, though.

I think this hotel is one of the best stay in the area because of its location and staff. Staff treats us well and fixes our problems with your stay and help with finding things to do. The hotel was clean and (very clean). Rooms were nice and roomy, most of all everything works and up to date. I am a frequent traveler and I real like the staff at this hotel it really makes our stay outstanding.

I rented two rooms for family and I was impressed. While I would have liked a free breakfast, I liked a lot about this place. First, I thought that the staff was very nice and friendly. Second, I liked the location as it was an easy drive to downtown, and also to Wrightsville Beach. There are a lot of places to eat near, and the college is right there. Two turns and you are on your way to I-40. They had a fridge in the rooms, USAToday, and free coffee in the lobby. Overall a good stay, and I would recommend it.
