“Nice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

All good. Helpful staff. Nice Place. Pool was closed for maintenance but we checked in so late, it wouldn't have mattered. Restaurant next door was a pleasant surprise so having a bottle of wine was not an issue not having to drive to dine.

The front staff, cleaning and breakfast staff were all very polite and friendly. The pool was also very nice even though we did not get a chance to use it. Our room was very roomy and clean. We had the room with a Jacuzzi tub which my wife really enjoyed.

We moved to the Best Western on our 2nd night of the trip after a VERY disappointing previous night at a competitor. Wish we'd discovered this hotel sooner! First impressions were excellent: clean & inviting lobby with an adjoining well-kept indoor pool. From behind the desk Jessika greeted us with a smile & pleasantness that never waivered. She was wonderfully friendly, offered advice on nearby restaurants (including her favorite), shopping, siteseeing and beaches. She couldn't have been more welcoming to weary travelers. Our room was quiet, clean & comfortable with all expected amenities provided. The next night, HP was on the desk, and his demeanor was the same: helpful, friendly, good-humored, obviously there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. By the next morning, HP had pulled a double shift, yet still maintained his pleasant manner (probably difficult to do, as some travelers can by cranky). Through it all, HP never lost his smile. At the breakfast buffet area, Cathy kept it spotlessly clean, always refreshing the coffee, bacon, breads, yogurts etc. as needed; and always with that BW-trademark smile. Can't praise the entire staff at this hotel enough! The BW is in a convenient location: one direction is a short drive to downtown/historic, other direction to the beaches & pier. The BW is our clear choice for this area, a terrific value for price-paid.

Nice hotel with a great indoor pool and wonderful full breakfast. The staff was incredibly helpful. The weekend rate was excellent for being so close to the beach. Would stay here again if ever in the Wilmington area.

The location of this hotel is good but not great. It's still about a 7 minute drive from the beach while we were hoping it would be closer. We arrived late at night and Julia at the front desk was an absolute delight. Funny and warm, we felt right at home. The waffles at breakfast were really good and there was a wide variety of items to choose from. We would recommend this hotel to anyone!

I've never before felt inclined to write a hotel review - but the service experience when I stayed here was so outstanding I wanted to share...The late night staff member went out of her way to try to help us with an unusual request. The hot breakfast included many tasty choices and every staff member we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and we were very pleased with the overall experience - especially since it was so affordable!
