“Not nice at all.”
Reviewed May 30, 2005

One would think that this is a charming bed and breakfast spot. It is not. It's up a staircase, over a storefront. It's impersonnal and, actually, quite odd. The innkeeper is just a voice on a phone. There is no one there at check in -- just an envelope atop a rickety staircase.
I found the whole experience quite scary. Then, after numerous email and telephone requests for a receipt -- I still haven't gotten one.
This is certainly not at all worth the money. There are lovely B&B's in this charming city. This one is a storefront, masquarading as an inn.
I talked to a local innkeeper who said many people have come trickling over, fooled by an inviting website that in no way reflects reality.
Stay away.

Stayed at Stemmerman's Inn over a Saturday night in April. It was a pleasant place to be. Clean, comfortable, quiet. Nice views of the Cape Fear river and the downtown streetscape. The Thai restaurant, Rim Wang, on the ground floor was excellent as well.

There was quite reasonable attention to detail in the room- good sheets, nice sleeping loft, no clutter- a bonus is the washer/dryer and complimentary soap. The parking is secure as well.

I would recommend Stemmerman's to anyone who would like to drive down to Wilmington, park the car, and explore on foot - good location.
