“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

First stay at this hotel but not the last! Beautiful place, unbelieveable ocean views and great staff! Had a Queen, double, jacuzzi with oceanfront balcony. Big room, had everything, coffeemaker, safe, fridge, microwave, internet. Got room service for our anniversary meal, pricey but very good! Very impressed with staff and their friendiness.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor for great views, either harbor or ocean.

We got a room with two double beds because the king rooms were taken. Room would have been a little roomier with one queen or one king bed. Bathroom was large and view was incredible.

Stayed 2 nights in February so it was the off season but we love the shore. Hotel has great beach location and is very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially the nice lady who ran the store in the lobby and kept it open a couple extra minutes so we had supplies for the evening. We were worried as the only beachfront room was near the elevators but the room was actually very quiet. We had a king with jacuzzi, very spacious and clean. Bed was great, comfortable and great view of sunrise without getting up. Jacuzzi was nice but a little awkward as it is right in the room, near the door, with no half wall or separation.

Not many businesses near so you will need to drive to see or do things. We ate in the hotel dining room one night. Food was good, reasonably priced and service was good. We were one of only a few eating as it was the off season and can imagine it can be very busy in the summer. There is no breakfast included which is standard for resort type hotels, but always a nice addition we look for.

The grounds and pool area is very nice and well kept. The beach is very accesible with a wide gentle sloping shoreline. Garage parking was appreciated.

Room Tip: Beach side rooms have great view. The higher floors are better.

Went and stayed oceanfront in this beautiful hotel while down visiting UNCW. Nice rooms, comfy beds, great pillows and also enjoyed the hot tubs! Great bonuses if you are a priority club member! Easy parking.

Room Tip: We did ocean front - all ocean front rooms have a great view!

Was attending a business seminar and this was the most relaxing resort that I want to go again next year! The room had very comfortable beds and it was so quiet on the fifth floor all I could hear sometimes was the ocean. I enjoyed the crab cake lunch sandwich and the Atlantic Cobb Salad at the Hotels "Oceans" restaurant. They have good parking and friendly staff - Julia at check in provided me bonus vouchers for being in the Priority Rewards Club. This is a perfect hotel if you want to have a getaway and relax.

Room Tip: Oceanside rooms have a beautiful view and the sound of the ocean.

Room was clean and had balcony with sea view. Beautiful sunrise!! Only gripe was shower. Not too warm and lost pressure now and then.
Had a wonderful welcome and received bonus vouchers as hubby is platinum ambassador card holder. So we felt very special.
Ate In the hotel, very good food and service. Without having to ask they seated us away from bar and family tables so we could have peace. Very thoughtful
One problem we had was we had adjoining room - and the guy next door was smoking! It seeped through and stank! This was of not not the hotels fault and they dealt with it straight away. They had a balcony so they could smoke there!

Overall a lovely resort. There's a great pool and jacuzzi along with the long sandy beach! Beautiful

We've gone here 5-6 times over the last ten years. All the way from Europe. I find it to be the best place on the beach. Modern and comfortable and worthy of the term “resort”. But it is getting a bit old and worn in places.

First the good. The beds we had were some of the most comfortable ever. Mattresses nice and solid, but what appears to be a soft mattress cover. The result really works. Rooms are good size and each with a great view. Either the ocean (with only one channel - ocean) and the sound view with many things to look at. Outdoor pool isn’t the biggest, but adequate considering that the beach is great, has direct access from the hotel and much more entertaining. There is an large indoor wading depth pool that is heated. We don’t use the hotel food very often as we have our favorite outside places, but the few times we did eat there it was what we expected. Service in the bar is usually slow, but its been busy when we were there. very good. Staff was very responsive to problems and the front desk is normally very Carolina friendly. However there was one at the front desk who appeared to be rather authoritative. She meant well, but a smile here and there would help.

Lots of parking inside and outside, but when the hotel is full, competition for the spaces can become a bit spirited. As parking is a problem now at Wrightsville Beach, its good to have an easy space. However, the hotel isn’t near anything, so you have to drive to visit other places. Common areas are marbled and roomy. My world-traveled kids found the kids club to be one of the best (only the wind surfing kid care on Corsica was better). They couldn’t wait. It seemed normal to me, but the girls running the place must have been attentive and nice. Also, they would have people from the serpentarium and aquarium visit with exhibits.

On the down side, the bathrooms could use a re-freshening. Some effort has been made on sinks and counters, but the tubs are old. There is a “kitchenette” in the rooms with a nice fridge and microwave, but the cupboards look very dated. And they are empty. No plates, glasses or cutlery. Found that odd. The carpets in the room are fine, but I thought the hall carpets looked old. Could be the pattern - busy and dark - to hide stains). But worn or not, it gave the appearance of worn.

Would I stay there again. Without a second thought. Always enjoyable, comfortable and a notch above anything else at the beach. Can’t wait to go again.
