“Lovely Grounds, Moldy Shower”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2009

Lovely grounds, pool area and other common areas, nice size room but there was mold around the shower controls and faucet head in the bathtub. I just think it's horrible to allow that since it's so easy to clean. The staff was friendly enough but did not feel anyone put any extra effort into making us feel welcome. They had a bar which I had never seen at a Hampton before but as we arrived it was being shutdown. Hampton's website indicates that it is open until 10pm but we were there just before 9 and it was closing.

We arrived to a friendly greating, prompt service and a clean room. In fact, the entire hotel was clean. A small but well stocked excersize room was available and no wait during our stay. The kidney shaped pool was clean and refreshing with a relaxing settting under the trees, although there was plenty of space for sunbathing.

The contiental breakfast had the standard rolls, cereal, and fruit, but also offered 3 microwave options including pancakes, frrench toast and eggsand cheese on an english muffin. Coffee and juice were front and center, just what I needed.

Duriny the stay, we had one issue with the AC in our room, but the maintenance staff quickly resolved the problem during our visit to the beach.

The hotel was a convenient 4 blocks from Wrightsville beach and a mere 15-20 minutes from Carolina Beach, allowing for a choice of where you wanted to spend the day without wasting time driving.

Overall, a great visit. I recommend this highly. when I visit the Wilmington area, this will be my choice of hotels.

This was our first trip to this area. The hotel was minutes from Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Fisher Beach which also has an aquarium and civil war historic site. Getting to downtown Wilmington from the Hampton was easy. Wilmington is very charming with small shops, very good dining, historic tours and a battleship you can tour. The Hampton has suites as well as rooms. We were traveling with three couples and a 2 year old. It was nice to have the suite connecting with one of the rooms. The suite had a nice size living room with pull out couch, a full size kitchen with breakfast bar, a bedroom, dressing area and bath. It was plenty of room for a two year old to move around! The staff was very courteous and friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was very nice with a variety of hot microwave entrees as well as the standard bagels, muffins, fruit, danish, cold and hot cereals etc. There is access to complimentary beverages both cold and hot at all times. Everything was kept clean. You had access to a computer in the sitting/dining area. The only complaint that I had was a mixup in one of our room reservations, but it was taken care of quickly and politely.

The service was exceptional. When we needed more towels they were expediant with the request. We traveled with a two year old and the room was very roomy. He was able to run around and enjoy himself without being confined. The location was a prime location. Five minutes from Wrightsville beach and the location on which the property sat made you feel like you were in a cozy area. The breakfast bar was very well kept and the food was actually delicous and you had actual options. I really like how personable all the staff was, in just passing them in the hall and when in needing directions to get around the area. The only problem I experienced was the hotel was a little hard to find at first. There is no real sign sticking out telling you where it is and it is a little hidden off the street but it adds to the coziness of the hotel itself. Awesome experience.

Our family has stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past spring/summer. It is very clean, the rooms are spacious and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The pool area is beautiful; surrounded by a wooded area and it's one of the few hotels in the area that offers a pool bar! It is just over the bridge from the beach, close to nearby restaurants and only a 10 minute drive into the city of Wilmington. I highly recommended this Hampton Inn!

My husband and I traveld with my 20 year old son and friend, we all enjoyed out stay at the Hamton Inn. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The pool was clean and the grounds were well kept.
The breakfast in the morning was good. The only complaint we have is there are only double beds in the standard rooms and 1 king bed in the suites with a pull out sofa. Queen beds would have been much better.

After reading many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and not being familiar with the area, I booked a 5-night stay here. I stayed one night and checked out. If you are into old, cramped, musty-smelling motels, this is the place for you. This is not the modern Hampton Inn experience at all. I am Hilton Honors Diamond, and know of what I speak. This hotel is screaming for remodeling. The fitness center was closed for repairs. The beds are not comfortable. The "business center" is a desktop and a printer with low toner on a desk in the corner of the breakfast area. No true hot breakfast option. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that the Hampton Inn University, which is only about 2 miles further down the road, is a vastly superior option.
