“Delightfully Perfect”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

This is the second conference I have attended here this year and it has been perfect. The Cafe was improved with fresh fish, polite service and fun music. The staff at the front desk granted us a room change to oceanfront and I could not be happier. The sound of the ocean and cool air refresh a day of creative thought and I am reminded why this has always been the place I have chosen first for so many years . This review is an improvement from my July visit but a well deserved one.

We are here for a convention that my spouse wised to attend. We only live about 1-1/2 hours away so the trip was easy until we got to Wilmington, NC. If you are going to stay at this hotel try not to arrive @ 4:00 PM on a Friday. Traffic is murderous. Check in was pleasant & speedy. Our room faces the ocean and is nicely equipped. Meals in the hotel restaurant are good but in my opinion a bit pricey. Hotel staff is very helpful. I will stay again but plan my drive to arrive either earlier or later.

Room Tip: Chose your room carefully. Not all rooms have an unobstructed ocean view.

First room was near the elevator--way too noisy. had to ask for another room, which staff accommodated. The staff overall was excellent. Both rooms (425, 409) had terrible views--a bit of a disappointment. The rooms were pretty plain, the mattress was not firm enough and the lighting was a bit dim, so it was hard for me to go beyond 3 circles here. Parking facilities were good, we had good breakfasts at the restaurant and we rented some bikes from the hotel, which were functional despite dating from the Eisenhower administration. The beach was lovely and the view from the restaurant was spectacular.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms will have a view of the beach. I think the views here are very bi-modal.

Hi Attea146, thank you for your review and for recognizing our excellent staff. We do have a few rooms on the Harbor/Island side with limited views that have a window but no balcony. When planning your next visit with us give our Reservations Department a call and request a room with a balcony and away from the elevator. Also, if you are a Platinum IHG Rewards Club member and we have the availability, we can offer you an upgrade upon arrival. I will pass on your comments to our Maintenance Department who maintain and inspect our Beach Cruisers for wear. They are only 4 years old and great bikes to trek around Wrightsville Beach. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager

We were expecting a typical Holiday Inn but were in awe from the moment we stepped into the hotel, to the reception staff, the overall appearance & layout! This facility is awesome! They even provide shuttle service to local restaurants although their own restaurant is great with extremely friendly servers. The view is fantastic! This is a repeater! The management & the staff should be proud of the service they provide.

Booked the 1 bedroom king suite, oceanview, 5th floor. View looking out was angled to the beach rather than straight forward. Also overlooked the pool.
Good size suite with kitchenette and sleeper sofa could easily sleep four. Bathroom is only accessible via the bedroom. Those in the main room could interrupt those in the bedroom. Sliding door drapes dark enough, but there was a window above the whirlpool that had wooden blinds that could not close out all light. Also, the blinds did not work properly which made it worse. Slept with light bleeding into the room from the blinds.
Bathroom okay except the loud fan. Fan and light are on the same switch. Some hard water residue on outside of shower door.
Both sliding doors did not lock. They have a cheap latch.
Garage parking appreciated.
Big balcony with two chairs and two lounges.
Comfortable bed. The vanities in and outside the bath are convenient.
Interesting that they didn't say anything about me being a gold member.
Band outside the restaurant, near pool, played until 10:00. We could hear them from the room, but it wasn't too bad.

This Holiday Inn is amazing! Every member of the staff is personable and goes out of their way to help. The oceanfront location is just beautiful. Ask for a corner room (601) and you get a little view of the marsh/river as well. This would be a great place in any season!

Room Tip: A corner room gives you a view of the ocean and the marsh. Room 601 was perfect-with microwave, fri...

Righteous!! Thanks jolyn636 for the awesome comments about our hotel and personable staff. Yes, our '01 rooms are very popular and in demand because of the panoramic views of the Intracoastal marshes and ocean and larger room with wetbar & dining table. These rooms are a little more private too since they don't overlook the pool. We can request these end rooms for guests but unfortunately can not guarantee room numbers. We always try our best to accomodate our guests' requests. So glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we can't wait for your next visit - get back down here soon :o) Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Manager

Got a group discount rate for a conference, but still found the hotel expensive. However, the hotel has a lot of commodities, such as indoor pool and outdoor pool, 2 hot tubs, kids playground and awesome beach access. The rooms themselves are clean, but nothing extraordinary. Although it is pricey, the hotel is worth it, especially considering the alternatives at Wrightsville, which leave a little to be desired.

Thank you gbsf6212 for staying with us. I hope you and your family were able to enjoy our pools and beach while on your conference stay with us. If not, maybe next stay you can extend a few days at the conference rate and rent some bicycles to sightsee Wrightsville Beach or take the family out for a Kayak tour of the winding, tranquil waterways around the island.
