We checked in on a Sunday night for 5 nights. The first thing I noticed was that the towels in the bathroom smelled of mold. At 5 pm the "cafe" aka bar across the street started playing LOUD music. When we complained about the sound they moved us to a room as far away from the bar as they could...

The Sea Witch - and most of Carolina Beach, truthfully - are what I like to refer to as a "vintage" beach experience. Staying here was much like how I remembered beach trips from my childhood - a quaint, clean, no-frills family-owned motel where you can comfortably wash the sand off and lay your head for the nigh. The location...

My husband and I came down from Durham and decided to stay beachside in Wilmington as a special treat. After a few great recommendations, we really expected Seawitch to be a no frills, simple beach choice with clean rooms. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly, but because this is a beachside motel the room was...

We really enjoyed our stay at this "MOTEL" not a hotel. We were in Chapel Hill for a few days on vacation and just decided to at the last minute to go to the beach and spend one night. Not a planned trip, not even sure which beach we were going to or where we were going to stay when...

The staff was friendly but we are not used to staying at a hotel without coffee or ice, otherwise everything else okay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quaint 16 room oceanfront hotel with swimming pool. All rooms are non smoking and no pets allowed. Our buildings run perpendicular to the beach but our top floor rooms have a great view of the ocean from the balcony's. We also have a private beach access on site. Close to the boardwalk, convenient stores, restaurant, and the carnival when it is in town. Great location to watch the Thursday night fireworks. Located across the street from the SeaWitch Cafe & Tiki Bar. ... more   less
