The front desk representative was friendly and efficient. The motel has a vintage flair, the pool was perfect and the landscaping well maintained. The room was big and as clean as you can get a vintage motel room. It is a solid brick building with real wood and real ceramic tiles, I wore flip-flops so didn't experience the black foot...

This place used to be a Motel 6 and that was good by comparison. Free wifi that doesn't work, manager who doesn't know how to make it work. Half little tube of watered down shampoo, no washcloths, one unfortunate bar of soap. Breakfast, well a few muffins and packages of oatmeal, in a room with no tables--"grab and go" indeed....

I can't write a review of what the hotel is like once you arrive since the front desk agent, Irvin, hung up on me and cancelled my reservation when I was booking. After giving him my credit card information he gave me a confirmation number. I told him I would like a confirmation email sent to me and he told...

I've stayed in some terrible places. A homeless shelter HAS to be better than this place. Front desk lady is the most abdominal human on the planet and tries everything she can to make every thing difficult. Bugs in the tub, stains everywhere. Even as THE only guest I was treated like trash. You'd be better off sleeping under a...

I'll list the good first: the bed was comfy and there were no bugs. That's it. Out of order signs on ice machine, soda machine and pool. Tub and sink backed up, everything I put in fridge froze solid overnight. The a/c worked on high only, temp and fan knobs did nothing. Most of the outlets in the room didn't...

Where to start. The employees attempted to come in my room many times to "hangout". Blood stains on every almost every appliance. Screams all through out the night. When I told the employees the next morning, all they did was giggle nervously. On the floor of the bathroom the words "Dark days ahead" were scratched in the floor. Stay far...

At a glace, this hotel is not bad looking at all. It has a pool and it is fairly clean on the outside. Me and my husband were looking for a cheap room for just the night but hoping the hotel would be comfortable as well. We went to this hotel because it was 80$. They only had smoking rooms...

When i booked online the room said 2 beds but the lady at the front desk told me 2 beds would be 10.00 more. We were downtown wilmington until late saturday. There was NO hot water in the morning it was only warm to shower with and the water in the tub wouldn't drain. I would never stay there again

this is the worst place i have ever stayed and will never stay here again. the walls and curtains were filthy, the sink in the bathroom leaked and the comode almost flushed. the towle rack was broken, the beds were set on some kind of wooden plank, the sheets and comforter were cigarette burned, the heater/air conditioner didn't work, the...

Reviewed 30 January 2012

The most important thing to sort is that to make sure you're reading the right review. This motel is not the nearly identically named "Americas Best Value Inn" right up the road, nor is it the Econolodge which is also right up the street (more on the confusion surrounding this later). A half-century ago Market Street (Busines 17) had lots...
