“Great place for a conference!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I've only been to this resort in either April or May for an annual conference, but the hotel is really great. Comfortable rooms, many with direct ocean views (as the hotel is right on the beach). Staff is well-trained, friendly, and customer-focused. The only suggestion I would have in terms of the catering for conferences, is the chef leans to make food on the more bland side rather than add a lot of seasonings (not sure why that is). The food quality is good, just needs to kick it up a notch.

Room Tip: Always pick ocean view. Why go to the beach unless you have this view? Worth the extra bucks.

Hey sushiblues! Thank you for staying with us year after year. Our staff always strives to exceed our guest's expectations. I will pass on the your seasoning suggestions to our Executive Chef. And I agree, our Oceanfront rooms are awesome! What better way to start your day with us than to wake up to the beautiful, radiant sunrise over the ocean :o) Give us a call to make your reservations for next year's conference. See you soon, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager

This seems to be the best hotel on Wrightsville Beach. We did drive by the others to see what they look like.
It is well kept and maintained. Staff is very professional, friendly and courteous. We asked for early check in and late checkout and they gladly worked on our request and made it happen without any extra cost.
Hotel were very clean. E.g. Lobby area, pool area, and the rooms were in good condition.
A couple downsides, beach in front of hotel is full of shells and we did not find the soft sand beach that you would normally find on NC beaches. Don’t worry because half a mile drive down the road to the public access, next to Shell Island is the perfect soft sand beach.
Other downside is that this hotel is on the very pricey side but maybe that is expected.

Room Tip: Select a room on the higher floors and towards the outer part of the building. This will give you so...

You can pick up lots of shells on our sandy beach and there's even more opportunities to pick up whole shells after a storm has churned up the ocean :o) Come back soon!

We spent a few days at the Holiday Inn resort in Wrightsville last week. The ocean front rooms were just what we needed to relax and unwind. The entire staff at the hotel were very friendly and attentive.

We enjoyed the managers reception and the access to the beach. The hotel has indoor and outdoor pools and several hot tubs that face the beach. Our room was on the top floor which gave us an awesome view of the beach and the ocean.

The hotel could use some renovating but we never spend a lot of time in our room when we are there, so it's not a big deal. We highly recommend the Holiday Inn Resort if you are staying in Wrightsville.

Room Tip: Book an ocean front room on a higher floor.

Stayed here for a executive workshop and found this to be an amazing location. The staff was extremely pleasant with every contact. They allowed our group the use of a conference room for the day. The room rates were VERY reasonable and the views were Awesome!!! Highly recommend this Resort!

I've stayed here at least a dozen times over the past 10 years and I love this hotel. It's reasonably priced, the restaurant has great food. There are cute rocking chairs on the veranda and a parrot in the lobby.Parking has never been a problem. I like the rooms, beds are comfy, everything is clean. Keep the sliding doors open to take in the sound of ocean waves and catch a breeze. Staff is always friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I like the higher floors facing the ocean.

Since the temperature change, September and October is great for rocking in the chairs on the Sunrise Terrace for ocean breezes. Thank you again, hope to see you soon!

We were there to celebrate a birthday. All personel were very pleasant and helpful. Location is very good, beach beautiful. The room was comfortable but a bit noisy from the waves hitting the shore :) Given a chance we will make a return visit. This property sits on what was once an inlet between Wrightsville Beach and Shell Island. They filled it in... who knows what Mother Nature has in mind for the future... you better visit here quickly!

Spent a weekend here with our 2 yr old grandson,his first trip to the beach. Room was comfortable, basic standard room w/2 queens/side chair/desk/microwave/mini frig. Beds were too soft for us but not uncomfortable. Clean, nice staff and perfect location. Only complaints were in room air conditioner was very loud and not very efficient as we were warm. Can't imagine how it would be during the heat of summer. While it was a busy weekend, there were no pool towels at 3PM on Saturday. While it appeared that many guests were abusing the free towels since there were many on chairs (many empty), at the beach and even on the beach, they were not replenished 2 hours later. Parking lot can get filled up quickly. Bring your own chairs and beach umbrella since rental are $7 per chair and $12 for umbrella. Quite pricey for the time of year but really nothing else on the beach as nice for less.
