Fairfield Inn & Suites Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach

Reviewed April 11, 2010

Okay if you don't 'want' to be on the oceanfront, this is a good choice. It's just a few miles to the beach and a few miles to downtown Wilmington. The first floor room was clean and the bed provided for a restful night's sleep. There were various breakfast offerings (free). The eating area was packed so we ate outside since the sky was clear and the temperature warm. The staff was nice but not knowledgeable of their surroundings. There is a good locally owned restaurant across the street called Chris Cosmic Kitchen (rated number 2 on TripAdvisor) and the staff was clueless about it. I rate them a 3.5 and chose to round down.

We had a wonderful time at the Fairfield Inn in WIlmington. It's a relatively brand new property, so things are still fresh and nice. But I have a feeling that it will always remain that way, as the staff is terrific and the place just has such a positive vibe. The shower has great water pressure, the bathroom was sparkling clean, and the free Internet is very fast. In the morning, they serve a wonderful breakfast bar, with all kinds of choices including muffins, oatmeal, make-your-own waffles, hard boiled eggs, sausage sandwiches, etc. This is obviously a place where the management cares about the enjoyment of the guests. The place was packed while we were eating, towards the end of breakfast time, when the manager came out and refilled the Yogurt and other things that had run out. The room we had was complete with TWO queen size beds, both with great mattresses and a LOAD of soft fluffy pillows. This is a really nice hotel and we were just so happy to have landed here. On last months trip, we were in a terrible horrible place and so this contrast is just amazing. This hotel was half the price of the dumpy place we stayed last month and this place has a beautiful indoor pool and the other place had scum everywhere.

One of the staff members actually drove us to our evening event when the shuttle for our conference never came.

Stayed over the Chrismas holiday period to visit family
Location is very good - near major roads but not on one
near stores and restaurants but not right next door so its quiet
Hotel is fairly new and kept in good condition
rooms and beds are comfortable and spacious
One complaint with rooms was that not all had a fridge or microwave. They had a limited number of rooms with those features.
Pool is a little small (though I've seen smaller in Fairfields) but enough to swim around and relax in. Staff is nice, front lobby nice, good facilities for internet access.
Only complaint is with breakfast (yes - its a free breakfast and what should you expect for nothing - but it could have been better).
What was lacking was attention. We did stay during the holidays and maybe regular staff was not there. Food choices were not very good. Some items like bread were stale. There was very little in the way of fresh fruit. For a day or two - it's enough to get you going in the morning but a longer stay would mean having to eat out.
It's clean - comfortable - and inexpensive so I would stay again - but make sure I request a mini-fridge in advance and find somewhere for breakfast.

We rented two rooms and a suite to welcome my son back from Afghanistan. Steve, who works the front desk, got us in as soon as the rooms were available and put us close together even though we did not request that initially. We were given directions, recommendations, more towels... Very accommodating and friendly staff. The rooms are nice size, big bathrooms, and clean. We loved that they had coffee, tea and hot chocolate out all day. Breakfast was nice. It was a great stay!

We stayed one night as a part of a group for a wedding. The hotel was very nice. It was not an upscale place but it had that type of feel. The staff was kind and helpful. The lobby and breakfast areas were clean and well decorated. The room was spacious with a great bed and nice bathroom. Well decorated, updated, clean and cozy. The hotel was about 7-8 minutes to the beach, by car. This was a great hotel to attend the wedding downtown while sneaking in some time on the beach as well. The rate was great but that may be partly due to the time of the year and the group discount. Not sure about their standard rate during other times of the year. Great stay though!
