Wilmington Golden Sands
Stay was over Thanksgiving with resident family. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Beds were too hard for my liking. It is an older hotel and a little dated but again, well maintained!

Old, dirty and uncomfortable.
Old, dirty and uncomfortable describes it best. The people at the front desk were lovely. The property is gross! Everything from the terrible tv reception, scratchy & cheap linens to the broken lock on the sliding door was unacceptable.

Hotel Okay.
Hotel was average. Price was high. Pier was nice. Snacks available in office were high. They do have a ramp that goes to the sand but I was not aware until the last day. I think they should offer this information if they know someone is in a wheelchair or has a handicap. That one detail can make a huge difference in their stay.
