Good but could be great!
The construction on Water St. was a lot to deal with. I asked for my room to be moved due to 6:30 am steel beam construction started on the property across the street. The hotel renovations were great. Modern and asrhetically pleasing. Service was good but could have been great had they followed up with a request to help me track down a missing charger. I talked to 3 different folks at the front desk; two didn’t bother to follow up and the third said there wasn’t a charger turned in. I tracked down the housekeeper who cleaned my room that day and sure enough she had it on her cart. I was thankful but a little frustrated too.

Almost perfect
Beautiful hotel. Perfect location. Everyone is super nice. Was able to get a later check out with no problems. The location is PERFECT! The rooms were absolutely beautiful! ONLY PROBLEMS with the room, were that it said 2 Queens, but felt more like a full. The sheets didn't smell clean. They may have been, but it smelled like I was crawling into a bed that was slept in by someone who was sweating all night. Yuck! Ask for a riverfront room. I'm afraid if you're on the street side, you may hear the construction. I was afraid that you might hear everything because of the rooms not having carpet, but it was extremely quiet. We only stayed for one night, should have stayed for 2, but didn't have the time. We will definitely stay there again. I won't even attempt to look for a different hotel.

The room was clean....that's about it.
Beware that there is construction going on around the area. Also it is beside a community college. So there are your pedestrians everywhere. To get food outside of the hotel is a long walk due to unable to park. (Which for some is good, but not with a broken foot). Also someone knocked on my door at 2am yo give me a receipt for my parking charge of 12.00, which could have waited til I checked out. Room was small but nice. It's nice to see the walkway and river, but not really worth the extra money.

Superb location, though slightly expensive
Hotel Ballast in Wilmington, N.C. is a visually pleasing as well as a comfortable hotel perfectly located along the Wilmington Downtown Riverwalk. Never having been to Wilmington, I was surprised at how much was going on there. Wilmington has a vibrant and fun nightlife with plenty to do for all ages. I will definitely visit there again. Hotel Ballast is perfectly located to access the downtown on foot. Everywhere is walkable downtown. It was a little more expensive than I would like but it was worth it to be able to walk everywhere right from the hotel.
