"Usable but not great."
This room was adequate for 1 night (which is all that I stayed). Has not been updated in 15-20 years. Cramped bathroom, older carpet (maybe clean?). People were friendly in front office. It is conveniently located on a main thorough fare in Wilmington, lots of food choices nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was adequate, not far from the airport. Clerk was nice, even when I slept through checkout. (Alarm was set to central time)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Its a basic hotel. Decent for the cheap price."
Not much to say. If you gan get a room for $50 - $60 then you get what you pay for a basic room for a cheap price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful night stay"
Staff was very kind and helpful. Overall look of hotel was more than what I was expecting but some updates needed. Room was very clean. Hotel right on Market st, bus stop in front and less than 10 min to downtown!! Very convenient and safe traveling as a single woman.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value, clean, for the money!"
Nice helpful staff at the front desk. We had a service dog and they were very accommodating. The room was very clean. The decor was simple but very functional. The beds were comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a safe, convenient and clean budget hotel for a few nights at Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The WiFi really sucked,only worked outside.the room,or when you got closeto the lobby,which was really annoying when the hotel says all rooms have it .!! Owners.were nice people, the rooms were a bit out dated, but it was cheap and so it was ok really.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for just sleep & go."
For a 2-star hotel, this wasn't bad. If you are looking for a cheap, clean room with shower, tv, refrigerator, coffee pot, and A/C, then this should work for you. The hotel is definitely dated, and the rooms are decorated with 1970's browns & tans, and the A/C is typically noisy. However, it served its purpose for a "sleep & go". We would stay there […] again.

"Nice motel,with a very nice staff near the center"
this is a very nice motel with a great staff.We stay here every year for our anniversary celebration.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient & Great Rates"
Reasonable rates and close enough to downtown and to the beaches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is still very expensive for what it offers. Should be OK for a $30 a night. No Internet, few TV Channels, very much outdated. If u only look for a place to sleep. Then it is OK.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel looked nothing like the pictures."
The picture taken for Expedia must have been on a day that had pressure wash the front of the building. The hotel actually looked like the Bates Motel, the parking lot was dirty and unkept. The room was also nothing like the pictures the comforter had a stain on them, the ice machine was located behind a building and nothing was modern. My sister and […] I decided not to even try the breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Disgusting. Instantly felt depressed upon entering the room. Booked for two nights but chalked up the cancellation fee and relocated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not a happy camper."
We stayed for one night and I am glad that is all it was. The room was not very clean. I could wipe dirt off around the sink rim and you could plainly see where it had not been cleaned in awhile in certain areas of the bathroom. The bathtub was stained and looked dirty along with the bathroom floor. The bed sheets where very wrinkled and old looking […] enough to not be sure if they were clean or not. They advertised WiFi and it was a very poor signal, because I could not pick it up on my computer. Also, the TV was ancient and not very many good channels. They did provide a good continental breakfast that was fresh, but the chairs that were around the tables were nasty with alot of old stains. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Door to each room is outside"
Door to each room is outside and therefore did not feel great. Also, neighbor wasn't great - not terrible just about mile away from what locals said was not a good part of town making the issue with the doors to each room outside feel like a security issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for a one night stay."
Ok for a one night stay. There was some sort of pungent smel in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok in a pinch, but not great"
I had to book a last minute trip to Wilmington and this seemed like the best option available to me. My friend and I only needed to stay one night which was a good thing. The room smelled like stale smoke (even though it was non smoking) there were visible stains on the walls, the door appeared to have been kicked in at one time and repaired. The covers […] on the beds also had visible large stains, we took them off and slept with the blankets only. The bathroom had obviously not been cleaned, there was hair on the floor, fragments of leftover potato chips and stains in the tub and sink. It was clear that the room had only had fresh towels and sheets but no other cleaning was done. The doors open to the outside which I do not prefer. The only positive thing I can say about this place is that the sheets on the bed were clean and there were no bugs. I would not stay here again. But in a pinch if you have no other options this will do. We spent as much time away from the room as possible. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
OK for an early 1970s Motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok but too pricey"
The hotel was ok but too pricey for the location and condition. No bedbugs which is great and mattresses were covered in a protective sleeve so that was a plus. We really just wanted a place to sleep. That proved to be a slight problem as loud bass music and some screaming drive thoughs occurred. Good manners aren't really under managements control […] and the noise wasn't constant just loud when it occurred. It was a very basic room although clean there was a slight tobacco smell, nothing too bad. A continental breakfast ended at 9:30 on a Sunday which seems early but since we were late I can't comment on the food. Although it is on a main street the traffic noise wasn't a problem.

I personally was afraid just to be in the room with both the bolt and the chain locked. Our "non-smoking" room smelled of smoke so badly all our clothes still smell! The bath tub was so gross i had to put a towel down to feel comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to downtown...."
If you are expecting this to be a four to five star hotel you will need to stay somewhere else. My friend and I were looking for an inexpensive place to stay while we go to the beach and downtown Wilmington, NC. This place was a great place for that. Though the breakfast was something to be desired. Thank goodness we brought goodies with us to help […] with that. The service staff was great and polite. They helped us out with everything. This hotel was right in the middle of distance from the beach and downtown. We had a nice stay the whole time we were there. I will stay here again if my regular Wilmington hotel is full.

Great Management .Accommodating staff, neat & clean. Worth the rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we went to wilmington just for the day, the hotel was easy to get to from the beach,clean safe and within our budget. No ammenties but a comfortable place to just sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place - Still needs a few updates"
I liked almost everything about our stay. My only issues were that the box springs were exposed and had horrible stains, the room was very hot when we arrived (we had to drive around for awhile and let it cool off, and the breakfast was in a small room with hardly any choices. Other than that it was great especially for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I ENJOYED MY OVERNIGHT VISIT BUT I LOOKED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND 2 GUYS WERE LOOKING IN MY CAR WINDOW SEEING WHAT I HAD IN THERE AND I HIT THE ALARM BUTTON AND THEY RAN AWAY. THEY HAD BEEN TO THE MAIN OFFICE FIRST TO INQUIRE ABOUT A JOB SO WHEN I CALLED THE FRONT DESK, THE NICE GUY CAME OUT AND TALKED TO ME AND CALLED THE POLICE AND HAD THEM CIRCLE THRU […] THE LOT SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE NIGHT. THIS WAS A VERY UNEASY OVERNIGHT STAY. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to beach"
Our room didnt have AC . Beds were uncomfortable. Would not go back as last minute stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was a little worried about staying here after reading the other reviews, but I found this hotel to be just what we needed. We spent most of our time at the beach and only used the room to change clothes and sleep. The decor is old and the room is not spotless, but you get what you pay for. We had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to beaches"
Loved the old motel but needs to update beds, TVs and wifi.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It is worth its price, Literally"
The hotel lobby was not very comforting, the floors creaked and the continental breakfast was not worth the wake up. The renovations in the room are ok, I would suggest the lobby to get the same renovations. It wasn't great, but it's good if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep for a night.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was very nice and I enjoyed my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"For what we needed okay"
The room was clean, I did find a dead bug in the dresser drawer. The staff was friendly. There was a continental breakfast, when we booked the lady said full breakfast, location was okay we had restuarants down the road. but the location is not a good part of town, I would not go out walking by myself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Way to cheap to be so expensive"
For the price of $100.00 it wouldn't be worth $30.00. I will NEVER stay there again as it looked like a hotel that belonged in the projects. The room was very dirty and cheesy. There was mold at the ceiling. The shower head in the bathroom sits so low that an average height person has to bend down just to get under the shower water. Would I stay there […] again? NO! I'd much rather sleep in my car at a rest area than stay there again. Please folks, heed my advice and go elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"quick trip for a wedding event"
pleasant, we did not take in the breakfast or other things there at the hotel as we were out at the event most of the time. However the beds were comfortable and the shower and bath were clean and had hot water and air cond. so it meet our needs. the bed spread had something spilled on it from a previous quest and had not been washed. We just threw […] it in the floor. The sheets looked clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly service, next door to a great local diner"
Just a basic room but it worked for our short stay in Wilmington. It is right next door to the Goody Goody Omlet House. Great fast food!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will never stay there again"
It was a dirty hotel. All the food was stale at the breakfast bar and they did not replenish it. The "orange juice" was tang. I stayed at a different hotel the same weekend in Wilmington for a lot less per night had a much larger room and free snacks and drinks. I don't even think the maids cleaned our towels as they were just folded on the end of our […] bed. I saw a maid cleaning the room next door to me and she simply made the bed and made sure nothing was left in the room. She did not even have a cleaning cart. She definetly worked for the hotel and was sent in to ready the room for the next person. Worse hotel ever. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Review of Howard Johsnon on Market Street"
The room was OK in that it was older & had not been updated. It was clean and comfortable. I was disappointed in the mangmt at the hotel. She could not recommend a place for a fish dinner, because she did not eat fish. Come on this is the beach! I had never been to Wilmington and found out today, back at my office that I even missed the boardwalk. The […] magmt was not very helpful about beaches to go to or things to see. I was only at this motel because it was a last min trip and all beach front hotels I called were full, so maybe they are not use to becah tourists. The contential breakfast was just so so. The cereal was stale, but coffee was hot, which was my main requirement first thing in the morning. I would stay there again, but I know to adjust my expectations.

"Fire alarm problem"
Rooms were comfortable as expected for the level of quality. However, the turning off of a erroneously tripped fire alarm took over 20 minutes around 1 am in morning - too long. Also, hotel failed to follow through with wake-up call in morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
