Days Inn Wilmington / University
Ranked #28 of 45 Hotels in Wilmington
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Needed a room for 2 nights and didn't want to pay an arm & a leg so I found this hotel on Travelocity for $52 a night (10/12/12 & 10/13/12). I almost dreaded reserving this place because I could only imagine the dump we were probably headed for but upon check-in we were greeted by a very friendly front desk attendant (I believe his name was Gary!) which was a positive start. The hotel is right on Market Street so there's no missing it- good location & proximity to shopping/restaurants. (There is a Waffle House across the street and a Hooter's within walking distance) The hotel definitely appears dated and could use a good amount of updating. When we opened our room door I was bracing myself for the usual awful cigarette smell but was very happily surprised to be greeted with no odor at all! The beds were typical, hard mattress hotel beds, drab decor, old green carpet, outdated pinkish wallpaper but for $52 bucks a night it wasn't bad at all. The bathroom was clean, the mini fridge was nice & cold, we had plenty of towels, and a nice size TV to fall asleep to. One small inconvenience was there was no "express checkout" where they slide your bill under your door in the mornings- we did have to go return our keys to the front desk to check out but that was really the only slight inconvenience there was. We were in town for the Fire College event at the Cape Fear Community College and they even had a "Welcome Firefighters" sign on their electronic board out front. With so many events going on in Wilmington this past weekend (Fire College, festivals, Dog Shows, etc) I'm surprised the price wasn't much higher. Overall a great stay, easy on the wallet, and we will more than likely stay there again for future events!

Room Tip: If you want a bottom floor and you're reserving a room online choose the "Accessible"...

Pleasant staff, good coffee at check in. Did not stay around motel much but the little interaction with staff was nice. Check out was a breeze. Did not use the dining area.

I stayed at the Days Inn for 3 nights with my big yellow lab. The room was clean, smelled good, was spacious and comfortable. The pet area was adequate and the staff wads always helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.
