I have traveled to Wilmington several times. I had passed to hotel multiple times and wondered what it was like and was hoping that this stay would be different and would not be motel like. I pulled up in the parking lot before check in and felt a knot in my stomach. The check in process was not exactly what i was suspecting. I was given a subtotal instead of adjusted total with the taxes included. I thought that was antiquated. The true total you receive at check in. I entered my "non-smoking" room and the room heavily smelled up smoke. The kitchenette had no NO SOAP whatsoever. The cup i was going to use from the cabinet had something dried up on the inside which disgusted me. The bathroom was clean but there was no lotion, shampoo, or conditioner that i normally expect to be in a hotel bathroom. The refrigerator was extremely loud. The bed in the room was absolutely the worst bed that i have ever paid to sleep in. There were 3 flat pillows and the mattress was probably just as hard as the floor. The bed quilt in the "non-smoking" room had multiple burn holes in it. I could hear the people in the hallways and the neighboring rooms very clearly so much so i was awakened from my sleep on multiple occasions. During my stay i feared for my safety when i entered the hotel and a man exiting the hotel held the door for me. When i exited the hotel again the man was still in the parking lot at the driveway of the hotel waiting to pass out materials about the religion he followed. It was unnerving to know that this man was inside the hotel where i was staying and obviously was not a guest of the hotel since he had the door propped open. I had an undue knock at my door at 10:54am on the day of check out from a hotel staff member wanting to know if i was going to check out. Six minutes later i walk down to the front desk to check out and find out that the checkout time is 11am but they were wanting to know if i was checking out or wanted to stay longer. OBVIOUSLY i was not going to be staying longer in this crappy location or else i would have communicated to the hotel that i wanted to extend my stay. There was absolutely no reason to harassed by the hotel staff before check out. I also assuming that the two times the phone rang in my room during my stay were probably from the over bearing staff wanting to know the same thing since they were the only ones who knew i was at the hotel. JUST DON'T DO IT. I have never felt agitated after staying at hotel normally the feeling is relaxing breath of fresh air. DON'T be fooled.
