“Family Vacation”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This was a good hotel. It was clean and quiet. Everyone working at the hotel was very friendly from the front desk to housekeeping. We never heard anyone else at night. Small, but clean pool. Good breakfast selection. The lady managing breakfast did great and was very friendly. Workout room was nice.

Have enjoyed staying here for years and will continue to do so. Not far from Wrightsville Beach and plenty of good places to eat nearby. Room was very comfortable and clean towels were always available at the pool area.

Stayed here while visiting a friend and found the location really perfect for driving or walking to most of the main stores, restaurants and attractions. We have two young kids and are usually more budget conscience, and this place fit perfectly. The pool was great and so was the breakfast, something for everyone on the menu. The staff was polite and eager to help. Overall a very good experience.

We had a wonderful stay here. We checked in without a problem. The facility was very clean, as was our room. The beds were very comfortable. The pillows were a bit fluffier than I was used to though, so my neck was a bit sore in the morning. I went to breakfast right away in the morning and didn't have any problems. However, when my friend and daughter went later in the morning they had a hard time getting food because it was so busy and some of the other guests were rude -- not something the hotel can do anything about -- which was frustrating. The location is great because it is just a few miles down the road from the downtown area. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Me and my family had a wonder two nights and three days at Best Western PLUS University Inn located in Wilmington, North Carolina. We had a blast we traveled to the BATTLESHIP. We also went to the AQUARIUMS. We also ate at ELIZABETH PIZZA. while we was staying. The Rooms was clean also i like the fact that when we went out We could get our rooms cleans.The Pool was excellent. The Fitness room was a little dirty the walking machine didn't want to work. The water was hot and tasted very very disgusting. Other then those disadvantage. The stay was EXCELLENT.

Hair dryer & coffee maker. Small closet. Iron & board. Metal rack, with eight wooden hangers. Closet door has a full length mirror on outside. Overall bed/bathroom very clean. A/C was on at time of arrival, room very cool. A/C controls easy to operate. Green carpet thru out room.

Two elevators, fairly good speed. This facility has a fenced outside pool. Pool depth is 3 feet to 5 feet with a sun patio outside fence. Plenty of parking, with the west lot spaces on the tight side. The east lot look wider. Counted four handicapped spaces by main door entrance.

The lobby is good size. Large couch with five single firm cloth chairs. Nice carpet. Two guest computers.

Best Western has become my home away from home. I have never had a bad experience at a Best Western facility. I may pay more, however I have gotten more in return. This facility's staff was polite, helpful & friendly. NO accents. I would stay again with no hesitation.

I had read reviews of the hotel on line and it gets very good reviews. The beds were very comfortable but beyond that I do not think it was up to the reviews. We asked for blankets and didn't receive them. When we checked in (1 hour after check in time) the only room they had that was not on a smoking floor was over a dumpster. We had family that also requested non-smoking rooms and ended up on a smoking floor in a "non-smoking" room.... which smelled heavily like smoke. The desk staff was indifferent and offered no solutions for better rooms. The breakfast room was over crowded and the food average at best. There are so many hotels on Market Street that offer better options at less cost, I will book elsewhere next time.
