“I've had better...”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Stayed here for a night last week. The view from my room was GREAT - that was about it.
The room smelled old/kind of musty and was very damp and humid feeling.

I had to keep the A/C running 100% of the time to try and keep the room at a decent enough temperature, but the unit kept making this loud noise that woke me up every few minutes during my sleep.

The pools, beach and common areas are excellent and make for a really fun resort type of experience. You would never have to leave the hotel, but you should, at least to eat because there are many better restaurants on the island. There is a parking deck, which is nice, so your car doesn't get all salty. All of the rooms can see the water, whether it's the ocean or the sound, so I wouldn't pay more for the ocean view. The rooms are just about average. They don't have central AC, just a single unit by the window, so ours always seemed damp.

Excellent EDW128! Thank you for visiting us and leaving a review. Our staff is happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, most of our rooms have a water view, whether the ocean or the intracoastal waterways and marshes. Just a few of our Harbor rooms do not have balconies, thus limiting the views. We do hope you visit us again soon :o) Sincerely, Amanda Rochelle, Reservations Dept Mgr

Every time we go to the Outer Banks or to South Carolina we always have to make a stop here. Great location right on the beach with good size pool for kids to have a blast. My family loved this hotel.

I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. I am here with my two teenage grandchildren for a couple of Spring Break nights and it couldn't be any nicer. The service is phenomenal. The food is delicious. The paper arrives every morning without it even being requested. The pool and the beach are well maintained and the island offers various activities and good restaurants. This Holiday Inn is run by AnneMarie. She took the time to help us set up a fishing expedition to the local pier. When we arrived we were greeted by Ryan and outfitted for a few hours of ocean fishing. We didn't catch anything except some great photos and lots of fresh air. We walked down and then headed to the South Beach Grill for lunch. The hotel sent their van to pick us up. I've traveled a lot and this is one of the best run hotels in which I've stayed. It's been a great break for all of us.

Great location & outdoor area. But rooms tiny & staff indifferent. Restaurant just okay, go off property. Rooms are clean. So many staff & no one memorable. Other properties on island that make guest feel very special.

This resort is 1st rate. We spent 3 nights here and totally enjoyed it. From the ocean to the bar and restaurant it was all great. Front desk (Gloria) was friendly
and helpful. The dinner we enjoyed was a treat though the server could have been a bit more attentive on a slow night. She never refilled our wine glasses and we waited way too long for the check when we were ready to leave, but we were in no real hurry. We will go back when in town again !

Room Tip: Go for the ocean !

When you think of Holiday Inn a resort hotel, even at the beach, you would not picture the resort at Wrightsville Beach in NC. Our stay in this beautiful resort was such a great experience.

Not only was the resort great, but the staff was friendly and very helpful. We also ate at the restaurant and the food was great.

We stayed in late March so it was not really beach weather, but our room faced the ocean so we were able to keep the door open and listen to the waves. All of the even number rooms face the ocean and come with a private balcony. The rooms are in a "V" shape so there is not a bad view from any side and with the separated balcony the doors can stay open.

From the resort there are 2 private walk ways to the beach and added bonus for us was waking up to dolphins in the distance off the balcony and could also be viewed at breakfast.

We stayed at the resort for a special occasion, so I am not sure how often we would stay since we have family in the area; however, if we do stay at the beach again-we would definitely stay here again. We highly recommend!

Room Tip: Remember only the even number rooms face the ocean.
