Much better than expected - it looked like just another Bea h "strip" hotel from the outside but from the valet greeting throughout the whole visit service was exceptional. The fun colors and whimsical decor made our stay even more enjoyable. Our room on the 3rd floor had an Austin Powers meets retro Pee Wees playhouse vibe. It was comfortable...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017

After 20 years of dreaming about going to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach ( after watching Dawson's Creek and Nicholas Sparks movies) I finally dared to hire a car in the USA and stayed 4 nights in this beautiful Resort. I booked myself one of their premier Atlantic state rooms and my oh my, dreams came through. Wrightsville Beach itself was...

Superior staff, great poolside area with restaurant and lawn. Location is obviously excellent, with beach and sound side views, plus a short walk to ice cream & hot dogs near the beach. Easy, fun, will do again.

Enjoyed stay even with cold weather! Stay involved conference meetings each day, but location and size of meeting room was wonderful. Breakfast food and all food prepared by restaurant was outstanding along with services of staff.

Stayed here only because it was the headquarters hotel for the Wrightsville Beach Marathon, which I was participating in. What a delightful surprise! Very appealing contemporary decor, wonderful staff, exquisite dining experience in their restaurant, lots of beach and pool activity options All in a stunning oceanfront setting. Already planning a return visit in the near future with my wife.

Most enjoyable stay. Really liked the facilities and friendliness of the staff. Wish the weather had been warmer and dryer, but this, of course, was no fault of the management. Even a wet and soggy day on vacation beats mediocre days at home. Did experience a stunning sunrise on the last day. Great view from fifth floor

I wish I could put EXCELLENT because everything about the hotel we really liked except one very important factor and that is the quality of the sleep. We found the beds horrible. They were extremely hard. It was like sleeping on concrete and the linens were cheap and not all comfortable. It really ruined our stay which was quite sad...

We were in town for a wedding in Wallace. With benign only 30 minutes away, this was an excellent choice to enjoy beach time and being present with family. We will be recommending this place to everybody!
