“Excellent value and very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

I stayed here for one night during Riverfest. The room was a King suite riverview room with a mini fridge. The second night I stayed at the Hilton, just a block away, and it didn't compare to our Best Western room. It was very well done, very clean, and updated with a rainfall shower head and current decor.

I loved the way the room was set up, you walk into the sitting area with the sofa bed, tv, and table then walk through a passage way where the bathroom is located and then into the bedroom area. It feels like a one bedroom apartment almost (without a kitchen, of course). The bedroom even had a pocket door if you wanted to be seperate from others staying with you and sleeping on the sleeper sofa.
The value is superb! You can walk to everything!!! With every nice eating place 2 blocks away, and the Battleship North Carolina is just across the river, shopping....what else do you need?
I wish we had been able to stay here the 2nd night. The next time we're in Wilmington we'll book this hotel again. We were in Room 200, it's a corner room suite so if that's what you'd like you can ask for it specifically if you call, or just make sure you book a Riverview Suite on their website.

We were so happy to hear that you had such a good time in Wilmington during the Riverfest festivities and that you enjoyed your room. The corner suites have the best views and the extra space is an added bonus. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The hotel is on the banks of the Cape Fear River, and our room had a beautiful view of the river, the bridge, and the battleship. Easy walking distance to everything in the historical town. The rooms were nice and clean. Staff on the front desk were excellent and really helpful. Plenty of choice at breakfast but little room to eat it. But otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Great location for downtown Wilmington and especially for the Convention Center. Each room has a river view - and the afternoon sunsets are spectactular. Complimentary breakfast is fine. Staff was very helpful. Good value for the money.

I was recently in wilmington for a wedding and needed a place to stay. I chose the best western and was really suprised. Josh and Louise at the front desk are awesome and extremely helpful. The room had a super comfy bed and you could tell the room had been recently updated. Only thing was the A/C unit in our room didnt get very cold but thats an easy fix. Also this is right next to the Coastline Convention Center so its super convenient, considering thats where the wedding was, and it just a few blocks from downtown. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance too. I would highly recommend a stay here.

This hotel sits on the banks of the Cape Fear River, and has beautiful views of the river, the bridge, and the battleship. Very convenient to all that historical Wilmington has to offer, We never even got into the car the whole weekend. The rooms are nice, not extravagant, but nice... Every staff member we encountered were extremely friendly and accomodating, always with a smile and helpful advise about the surrounding ammenities. Breakfast was ok, waffle maker, eggs/sausage, bagels, muffins, fruit, etc... Also, the hotel has a private pier on the river that is only accessible to hotel guests, which was very nice. I highly recommend!!

We stayed for one night and the hotel was ideal for that! Very clean, ok breakfast, good location, staff were brilliant and helpful, slightly overpriced but besides that I would recommend this hotel!

Great views of Cape fear as well!

This hotel has a great view and good locaion. The boardwalk to downtown is right out the front door. The room is fine, bathroom is a little small. The outside door is very heavy! Breakfast is fine. Actually very good link sausage. They use an interior room which is very dark. All the folks working there are very friendly and helpful. Someone has trained them well. We will stay again.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor. That is where the breakfast is served.
