This Inn is not only well located in Wilmington, being close to the Historic District and the Downtown area... but the owners make everyone feel so welcome... This is a very hard business as many Inn operators know.. so for the owners that have operated this Inn for 15+ years to treat you like you were their first guest is amazing. Additionally, their past professional food experience makes their restaurant recommendations just that much more credible.
My only complaint would be that I was ready for coffee at 7:00 so I had to venture out on my own to the local Java Store in town.... just 2 minutes away... but it would have been nice to not have to leave the Inn.
The breakfasts were extremely good.... tipping the fact that Scott had extensive food background. Very helpful hosts, not found in every Inn these days.
