I stayed here for a girlfriend getaway - we chose it because of the location right in town. The rooms that we chose are on the second floor. Very spacious and well appointed, though not modernized. The beds are comfortable and each of these rooms featured a jacuzzi tub that we didn't use. My only complaint was a light that...

Stayed for one night in March of this year (on a weekend...and they were nice enough to let us book for only one night since we made a last minute reservation). Very cute inn with a great location, close to restaurants and many beautiful, historic homes. Room was clean and bright with high ceilings. Breakfast the next morning was lovely!...

We found Front Street Inn through a B&B site. We reserved two weekend nights here in April 2017. The location is excellent, one block from Water St., and the building is historic. We were disappointed to find the staff and overall atmosphere here less than warm. Not at all like the B&B experiences we've had elsewhere. At no time did...

The location is within walking distance to everything,...

They also asked about all my activities and offered encouragement and support when I was making a presentation for my job. By the time I...

Richard and Polly are super nice people. This is a great spot in downtown. Every morning there is coffee and breakfast downstairs. Easy walks in an area of historic homes. Many restaurants and bars nearby.

Front Street Inn in located in the historic area of Wilmington in a building originally built by the Salvation Army. It is one block off the Riverwalk, so it is very convenient to some very good restaurants, and not too far from museums and other historic sites. The Inn Keepers, Richard and Polly Salinetti, have owned and run the Inn...
