“Perfect!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

This hotel is in the absolute perfect location and one of my favorite places to stay. It’s on the beach but close enough to enjoy everything Wilmington has to offer. The service was incredible, the restaurant served a nice breakfast and the rooms were nice. The breakfast buffet on Saturday was heavenly and the restaurant serves the best grilled chicken sandwich I have had in my entire life… I ate at least three during my stay, just couldn’t get enough of them! The front desk staff and valets were great, not only friendly and welcoming but genuinely concerned about making you feel as though you were on vacation (even for the time I was there to work!). The beds are some of the most comfortable I have slept in anywhere… I actually prefer the resorts beds to my own, and that never happens

Room Tip: Go for oceanfront and watch the sunrise. Try the breakfast buffet. Resturant serves the best chi...

We spent one might here while on our way down to HHI, S.C. This hotel is in the absolute perfect location. The service was incredible, the restaurant served a nice breakfast and the rooms were nice. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which had an awesome balcony with a view of the beach & pool. We will definitely be back to this hotel!

Our first "Spring Break" with our daughter, husband and twin 8 year old-grandchildren was the perfect choice! This resort has it all for business or pleasure, actually. If you don't mind the laughter and fun going on around you with lots of children by the pool, head for the absolutely pristine BEACH! The resort is literally ON the beach. Make your reservations early, though, so you can get your balcony facing the beautiful sunrises!

If you are a Priority member, you are checked in with a $10 food credit, even room service, and 500 bonus points if you do use room service or the restaurant. There is a kids club, which t my surprise our grandkids loved! For $10 and 4 hours with lots of supervision the kids get dinner a great kids movie and a craft project in a friendly playroom. Parents get a night to do their "thing" and know their children are safe.

The area is surrounded by lovely beach homes and the shuttle will take you to and from all the local super shopping areas. If you want to get into charming Wilmington or other great sights further away, you will need to rent a car. The Hotel will p/u & return you to airport as well.

All in all, a great, fun and memorable experience!

The Lucido/Davis Family

Room Tip: Book early for ocean view & great sunrise.

We stayed at the Wrightsville Beach Resort recently, and by normal 'resort' standards (no smoking on the property) this is NOT a non-smoking location; it is non-smoking in the room only.
With balconies that don't count as 'the room' in this facility, the building loses it's allure when guests light up and send the smoke around the building either early morning with coffee, or a late cigar with whatever.
The 3rd floor dining and 'rocking chair balcony' consistently converts to a party/get-together floor that, by itself, could cause the alarms in a "non-smoking resort" to go off at any hour.
We will not be staying here again. The disconnect between smoking, fun, and resort are too wide...

Room Tip: Pick a higher level, on the north side of the ocean view rooms.

Hello traveler24680...We are sorry that you did not have a great experience at the Resort. It is a constant struggle to keep smokers respectful of our non-smoking status. We encourage our guests who experience a situation such as this to contact a member of our management team in order for it to be addressed in a timely manner. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention and we hope you will give our beautiful property a second chance.

We spent two nights (March 31 & April 1, 2012) at this resort at Wrightsville Beach. This was our first time to this particular beach. We used a Chase Priority Club Card free-night for one of the days. The trip was a getaway for just the two of us and we had an oceanfront room with balcony, a mini-fridge and microwave.

The service was terrific (the front desk had to work on a priority points snafu, and did so cheerfully). We ate most of our meals in the hotel (try the breakfast buffet) and we also had a delightful dinner at the Bridge Tender restaurant. The hotel limo/van took us to dinner and picked us up. We toured Wilmington NC (on our own) one day (take the trolley tour and visit the Battleship).

We were there, of course, off-season, but luckily, that time was sun-filled. The pool areas are well maintained. Be sure to ask for an ocean front room. Overall, a great experience for budget-minded travellers.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an ocean front room with a balcony.

I took my daughter and friend here for Spring Break. Each room conveniently has a mini fridge and microwave for leftovers. This was our 2nd visit but first with an oceanfront room. The view was incredible. I love sleeping with the door open and listening to the waves crashing on the beach and this hotel delivers. Staff is very friendly. The restaurant's food is good (and big!). The chicken tenders were hand breaded and delicious. The poolside bar serves great drinks. The gift shop is also well stocked and nice. My only complaint would be that the hotel could use a litte updating. The rugs are too old and worn. It wouldn't take much to turn this review from Very Good to Excellent. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pay extra for an oceanfront room - it is well worth it!

Friendly service, immediate and sincere PC acknowledgment, bar/restaurant closes too early, beautiful location. Right on the beach; can't complain. Rooms are fairly average looking though. 7/10
