Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Wilmington
Ranked #16 of 45 Hotels in Wilmington
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on our way to Georgia. I redeemed my Club Carlson points for the stay.

The hotel is easy enough to find - although isn't in downtown Wilmington. (This isn't a problem though as downtown is a mere 15min drive/ $12 taxi ride away). There is ample parking and, as mentioned many times before, a huge Target within 5 mins walking distance.

The reception was welcoming and efficient. The room was great. Very new and very clean. The air conditioning was efficient (it was over 100 degrees outside). They have a pool which we didn't use but it looked great. A nice little touch are the rocking chairs outside for the smokers....

Overall a most pleasant place to stay. And the location is great for Wrightsville Beach which is lovely.

Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

My wife and I booked this hotel via Hotwire.com and of course knew we ran the chance of receiving this hotel after pressing the submit button. Having never stayed at a Country Inn & Suites I kept my expectations very low as I’m sure anyone else would. I must say, this hotel was very well kept and the staff was outstanding! The location was very convenient to the beaches, UNC-W, downtown, and I-40. There were plenty of restaurants close to this hotel and there’s a Target right across the street which was great. Our room was very nicely arranged, clean, and large enough for us to move around in. The bathroom could have been a little bigger, but all things considered we were still very happy with the room. This hotel is a great value (even without Hotwire) and they offer a pretty good breakfast here as well. Would stay again!

I recently stayed here and will never return. The hotel is in a good location and the room was a nice says. That's the only positives. The room was dirty. The hall smelled and the room smelled worse. There was some sunflower seeds and some crayon paper on the floor when I checked in. When I checked out 3 days later, the trash was still there. A vaccuum would have taken care of that. The sheets were stained. The towels were stained. I came back with an unexplained rash after staying there. I had to do some work while I was there and they advertise high speed internet. I was getting at most 1mpbs whether wired or wireless. At some points, I was only getting half that speed. The TVs were new, but the picture quality was terrible. It looked like the signal was coming in through an old antena with all the snow and static I was getting. It's 2012 and a clear digital signal is easily available, just not at this hotel. If you are really desperate and don't want to stay in the bad part of town, this hotel will suffice I guess. I definitely would never stay here again, no matter what it cost to stay elsewhere.

We stayed here on a 3 night Wilmington Vacation. The hotel was clean, the room was nice, and we were glad to have a fridge and microwave. The front desk staff was friendly, and the breakfast was adequete.

The best part was the location, right on Market, close to Walmart and Target, and right in the middle of Wilmington Downtown and Wrightsville beach.

We will stay here again!

I would stay here again. We had a quick one night visit, and were very satisfied with the quality and cleanliness of the room. The location was convenient to the sights we took in while waiting to meet our friends, and then again to the beach area where we actually met. The motel seems new, which explains why my tired, old, near-sighted, GPS was off by 1/4 mile in guiding us - but the hotel was in view, so no big deal.

It shows that they are improving, good price, clean, well managed, would stay again. Nice folks, solid breakfast, responsive, great location, terrific beds. We had a great two night trip here for a beach getaway and paid less than half of what beach hotels were charging, five minutes to the beach.

Just ok. The first impression as you drive up off the main drag was one of mediocre care with the exterior. Then, as you enter the interior, there is a security vesibule which gives you an uneasy feeling concerning personal safety. The room was just ok. It was a king, did have a small refrig, but the bathroom facility was less than desireable. We were up on the second floor with the entranceway on the exterior rather than interior, and overlooking the parking lot. It could be noisy but when we were there it was quiet. It would not recommend unless value for your money is key to the trip.

Room Tip: Tip: pass this one by unless you are desparate for a cheap place to sleep.
