“Would stay here again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

This motel was a good old-fashioned place to stay. By that I mean if you want somewhere to stay and do not need all the "bells and whistles" this is the place for you. It is remarkably clean! Probably one of the cleanist places I have stayed. Pick this hotel if you want a fantastic view of the ocean. It can't be beat! Checking in and out was a breeze and the gentleman at the front desk was friendly. A tip (and the only con for us)....when you book (or check in) ask for a room away from the elevator. The elevator is on the scary side with all the noises it makes. We had a room between us and the elevator and could hear every time the elevator came up to our floor during the night. Even with that said, I would definately stay here again!

We stayed here for a weekend getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the hotel, very clean and proximity to the beach was wonderful. Very beautiful view from the room. It was very warm the weekend we were here and we really enjoyed opening the balcony doors and letting the breeze blow through. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

We took off for a week end get away and ended up at Wrightsville Beach. We stopped at The Surf Suites and decided to spend the night. The room was very clean and the view was wonderful! The staff was very kind and helpful with any questions we had about the area. We ended up staying two more nights. I was very pleased to find the Surf Suites and I can't wait to return there. If you go, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean!!

We have stayed here twice and had a wonderful expereince both times. The suites are a nice size with a seperate bedroom and a small balcony. Right on the beach, you can listen to the waves all day long. These is a small but adequate stock of dishes and pots and pans. We went out and bought fresh seafood and came back and prepared it each day. Our view was as good as the high priced restaurant next door. The staff was excellent, we had to delay our stay one time due to weather and thye had no problem moving it for us. We needed extra linens another day and they brought them right away. Love this place.

Stayed for a week in a ground floor suite. Although an elderly property, the care taken in its upkeep and maintenance is outstanding. Suites are roomy, well equipped for self-catering. Bedroom is comfortable, bathroom showing its age but functional. Kitchen appliances are modern. Flat screen TVs in Main room and in bedroom. Others have raved about the view; I agree.

The complaints: Only 2 hangers in the BR closet (in a property that can sleep 4 people!), but no big deal, Dollar Tree sells 8 plastic hangers for a dollar. Remote on the main room TV is only partially functional. The showerhead could probably use a CLR bath. None of those complaints would make me stay elsewhere if I were to return to the Wilmington area.

Family of four, we stayed on the 2nd floor and had an amazing view. Beautiful room, WIFI, excellent staff, very friendly. Best motel in the area hands down. My teenage daughters loved the beach. Can't wait to go back and stay.

Room Tip: 2nd floor had a great view
