We spent Saturday night there. It was clean, comfortable, and very quiet. I would stay there again. Its is only 3.4 miles straight down Market street to downtown. Market street can be kind of dicey so I recommend paying more for a hotel if you can. Front desk was nice and polite.

Room Tip: Get a room on the back parking lot side on the third floor.

Very nice hotel (for a Holiday Inn)...just renovated. The rooms were nice. Front desk staff were sub par...complaining and talking on cell phones, etc... UGH! The highlight of this stay was the bartender...this guy was incredible!!! My wife & I still say those were the best Martinis ever!! No offense to him or Holiday Inn, but this guy should be working in a big city. Def recommend this hotel...especially if you want some cocktails. Cheers!

I have stayed at this hotel for many years and can't believe the outcome of the renovations and the hotel staff! The hotel was absolutely beautiful!
I checked in on Friday the 13th (of all days) and was greeted by Laurel and the general manager, Robert, at the front desk. Laurel was very friendly and had gave me good directions on where I needed to go that day. Had a problem getting my fridge to work and called down to the desk to have someone come up and look at it. Just a few minutes later the maintenance man, I believe his name was Zelito, fixed it in a flash! From the new rest/bar to the excellent guest rooms and the professional staff, I would not choose any where else in Wilmington to stay!

Working third shift myself I found I was up at the worst hours. Seth working the front desk was EXTREMELY polite, and even more helpful. Seth had a ton of great information on the area, the motel service, and was even able to talk myself into not only planning a second trip soon(undoubtedly staying with you guys again), but also in planning a move to beautiful Wilmington. Thanks again Seth for all the help, and letting me bug you like I did. EASY 5 stars!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with this motel. Surround yourself with such fantastic people!

After four days in a hotel in the Smokey Mtns, we arrived at the OBX, starting in Wilmington and thank goodness it was at this hotel. The staff were friendly, and the place took my view of Holiday Inns to a whole other level. The pillows alone were divine. In a hotel you're looking for a place to sleep that's comfortable, this hotel is comfortable and so much more! It's beautiful. There's a bar and restaurant, the beds are the best of our vacation - and we also stayed at Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, and Baymont Inn (not recommended). It seriously is making me rethink how often I go for Hilton points versus IHG. I make my kids wear either shoes or socks in hotel rooms and I didn't feel the need to do that here. It is clean, bright, well-decorated and the staff are welcoming and friendly. If we cruise thru Wilmington again, we will absolutely stay here.

Room Tip: The double queen room fit our family of four very well, everyone slept like we were at home.
