When we read that the hotel had been "renovated" we expected to find a little fresh paint to cover scarred walls and doors, and the musty smells of old socks and mildew. Since we were on a budget and the trip was a last-minute decision to help my wife escape the 4 walls of the house, we chose this one based on the positive reviews.
When we arrived, the staff were extremely friendly and professional, and check-in was fast and easy. I was genuinely amazed by the quality of everything! The furniture and bedding were practically new. The bathroom and sink area were all well-appointed and exceptionally clean. There were NO odors of any kind, which really surprised me for a hotel stay less than $100 per night close to the coast in summer! We only stayed one night, but we did get a chance to take the kids to the indoor pool, which was very clean and well-maintained.
The beds slept very well, and the breakfast in the morning was not bad. I wish we had gotten to breakfast earlier as some items had gotten a little rubbery from sitting. Coffee was not bad, definitely fresh tasting.
The only real negative I will post is the location. The intersection by the hotel is a very quirky one. We decided to check out an Asian restaurant across the street, but we wanted to drive in case of rain. We could not go across at the intersection; instead we had to turn right and drive down a couple of blocks, make a U-turn, and come back to the restaurant. Otherwise, not far from everything. Next time we head back to Wilmington, I will definitely check here first for a room!
