    « Great Stay! »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn for two nights. The location is on the waterfront of the Cape Fear River - right next door to the Visitor Center and across the street from the Cotton Exchange. All rooms have a riverview which is awesome. The hotel is a relatively new property and was very clean. The bed slept great after two full days of touring Old Wilmington. Room was spacious, well decorated and the housekeeping staff was excellent. The desk attendees were helpful and extremely cordial. The location was great - right on the River Walk. Breakfast was included and although I didn't eat breakfast there myself, my husband did and enjoyed it but most especially enjoyed the conversation with

    I stayed here in the middle of the snowy weather in january. Nice warm and cosy room, nice view, decent location on the river. Good breakfast and parking. I cant say much about the surrounding area as much was shut due to the weather. All good.

    « Great location, okay hotel »

    Not the cleanest rooms ever, but the location is wonderful. Had a problem with the plumbing, and it took about an hour, but did get moved to a room with a working bathroom. Rooms are clean-ish, but neat freaks would not be happy.

    « Great Location »

    New building adjacent to the visitor's center, convention center and small railroad museum. Located right on the walk along the shoreline. Easy walk down to Wilmington's historic district. In-house breakfast is OK. Staff was very nice. On-site parking is great. We had dinner at Savorez which is just outside the historic district; mostly patronized by locals from an older neighborhood. Easy to get to and super tasty.

    « Trip Advisor Never Steers Me Wrong »

    I went with the reviews and booked this hotel a couple of weeks ago for an event in Wilmington and I couldn't have been happier. We were greeted by a wonderful lady (whose name I believe was Rhoda or i could be totally off) when we arrived who I had talked to on the phone and from that moment forward we had a great time, she was great at helping us get checked in. We were walking distance from the venue our event was being held at so that was perfect and we were also very close to most places we wanted to go to down town. Some folks may have walked to a couple of the restaurants and bars we wanted to hit but we chose to take a very short drive and use public parking. Our room was very clean as I have come to expect with BW and all the staff were very friendly. I guess the only bad thing to mention is the breakfast was not fabulous. It was what looked like microwaved floppy bacon and some sort of pre made eggs BUT they had bagels, yogurt, waffles and other things so I cant fully complain. I just happen to love breakfast so i was a tad disappointed but you can always pay 70 bucks more and stay somewhere else and have a higher quality breakfast. I thought our view was beautiful and the grounds were very nice. If you are looking to stay at some ritzy over hyped hotel then this may not be your place but we loved it and have already looked at planning our next stay.

    We stayed here for a wedding and the staff at the hotel were amazing. Super friendly people who truly cared about the guests. Would recommend this property just because of the staff. From the time we checked in to the day we checked out, anything we needed was taken care of.

    « Family Visit with Fur Baby »

    Looked for a half way point for us to meet son. Wilmington was a great place to meet. Time of the year we were here, we were not sure other than beach if there was much to do. YES - USS NC was a great tour if you have never been on a Naval ship. Downtown Wilmington and the River walk are a great way to spend your time. Now a place to stay near everything. This is it and now on our top 5 favorite hotels we have stayed at. Rooms: CLEAN, roomy, and the rain shower in bath was very nice. Staff : Every single person we came into contact with were great and so helpful from the time we booked to the time we left. Location: We liked the area because it was at one end of RiverWalk, so we would walk down by the river and back to hotel going through the shops and Main. We were not into the night life on Main but it did look like everyone was enjoying themselves. Drive to any of the beaches was easy and not far. Price: Compared to others I looked at , they had the BEST price for us at this time. Oh and VERY PET Friendly! Wish we had longer than just a weekend.

    « Scenic + great location »

    The Coastline Inn met all the basics - clean; comfortable beds and linens; and quiet (despite a wedding party staying there, but this is always luck of the draw). The property is on the site of an old rail yard with a rustic railroad theme including restored train cars that you can tour when the museum is open. We had a view of the Cape Fear River and the boardwalk (most, if not all, the rooms face the river). Coastline was a good choice for my dog and we took a long walk in the late evening (yes, it is safe) and the in the morning on the boardwalk and the central downtown area. Professional, friendly staff. I don't eat breakfast but it looked good and there are a few cafes close by for your espresso fix. BTW, the parking is free which off-set the very reasonable $20 pet fee. I was impressed by how prosperous and vibrant the downtown is. Wilmington looks like it is doing an excellent job of modernizing the city while keeping significant architecture and it's historical vibe. I imagine that at the height of the season it is pretty congested but I timed it just right and the "tourist load" was light.

    Every employee at this hotel was so pleasant! The lady at the front desk, (Rozz I think?) Was so accommodating and helpful on the phone prior to our stay and recognized my name and chatted with me upon my arrival! The housekeeper remembered our daughters each day and said hi to them as we would pass her in the hallway, and the lady who supervised the breakfast room was so nice!! The room was clean, nice, and comfortable!

    « Great river view and pet friendly too »

    We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn. We traveled with a small dog. The room was small but had a great view of the Cape Fear River and Riverwalk promenade. Our room did not have the advertised 2 queen beds but rather only 2 small full size beds. I'm not sure if this was because our pet friendly room (#109) was small or if all hotel rooms only have only full size beds instead of queen size beds. The bathroom was modern and clean but small with only a single sink. The pet friendly room was very clean and fresh (It did not have the musty odor that we experienced at a different hotel.). The breakfast was good and varied (scrambled and hard boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, bagels, toast, muffins, fruit, yogurts, oatmeal, etc. It was served in a small room on the 3rd floor which only had 3 tables and bar stool seats along the wall. There were additional tables wet in the walkway outside but it was too cold to eat outside during our visit. I'm sure outside dining is very enjoyable in warmer weather. The check in persons were very friendly and helpful. There is a dock and pier right out back of the hotel with nice views. There is plenty of nice dog walking opportunity along the Riverwalk boardwalk. Other than the small room/beds, everything was outstanding. Great location and good value.

    « Perfect location »

    I am writing this review a bit late, but I stayed at this hotel in early September 2017 for a few nights. As a female, this was my first solo trip, so I was a bit nervous about staying here and walking to a conference that was at a nearby hotel, but I didn't have any issues. The staff was great! I called them ahead of time because the conference was supposed to start before check-in time and I did not want to pay for parking at the hotel where the conference was at. They provided me with a parking pass upon arrival and gave me walking directions from their hotel to the other. I only used my car once during this stay because I was able to walk to nearby shops, restaurants, to the conference and back down the Riverwalk. There was a tall dock out back (which felt a little unstable to me), but provided a nice view of the river at sunset. You can also see the Battleship from the Riverwalk, so I was able to get a picture and send it to my child at home. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was due to the sounds from the neighboring room (paper-thin walls) and internet issues that I experienced during my stay- most likely from all of the construction outside my window. I would definitely stay again and would bring my dog next time, now that I know it is pet-friendly! Thank you, Best Western!

    Had to take my grandson to the Wilmington airport to fly back to Florida during his Christmas break. This hotel is very convenient to the airport. Even though all the roads were covered in ice it was a short distance to drive! The hotel was very clean and pet friendly, hotel staff was very professional and an awesome positive attitude

    Average hotel with extreme price fluctuations. Great location on the river. Walking distance to nice places. Parking is not great, especially when they have convention center activity. The rewards card is kind of useless.

    We had a great experience traveling with our 2 Golden Retrievers en route to our winter home in SC. The staff was friendly and the room was very comfortable. We walked the River Walk right out the front door in the morning and enjoyed the waterfront of the city. Great experience.

    « Best value for a quality stay!! »

    Have stayed here many times in the past. Sorry to say our first return in 8 years. Many improvements on this end of the river walk. Our trip will be for four nights. We were checked in by a lovely young lady who was very attentive, helpful and informative. SO refreshing. Our reservation was in tact and took but a few minutes to obtain our keys. She explained the breakfast, where it was located and the hours. My husband took advantage of that this morning and gave it rave reviews. Of course all the rooms look out onto the Cape Fear River. I have nothing but praise for this facility. After we came back from a walk, another gal was on the front, she too was attentive and knowledgeable about our questions. No hesitation is recommending this to anyone.

    « Amazing hotel, a unique stay in a beautiful place »

    I stayed in this hotel on business and I am so glad that I did. The entire building is situated in a unique fashion and the views from my room were absolutely amazing, like something out of a travel magazine. There is a wonderful dock/deck over the water that is accessible from the hotel and enables you to get out and sit on the water and enjoy breathtaking views. The USS North Carolina was visible from my 3rd floor room, which was a nice perk. The room was super-clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The bathroom was spotless, always a big plus. The only improvement that might need to be made is the breakfast area, it is very small.

    « Great Location and Breakfast but smoking fills the place. »

    Great location and friendly staff. The rooms were clean beds ok. The breakfast was awesome! The worst down side to this location is the staff smoking at the entrance of the lobby. If you like smoke filled clothes and lobby then you will enjoy this place.

    « Another plus for Downtown Wilmington »

    Worth consideration for a stay downtown in the Port City. Great sunset and river watching. Internet a bit slow, but if that is the most important consideration, stay at home! Have to add a few more words to satisfy trip advisor.

    « STAYCATION »

    We wanted a two night "getaway" for Thanksgiving/Hubbys birthday but didn't want to drive far on a holiday weekend. We chose Best Western because the reviews for the Hilton in the same vicinity were awful.Overall the experience was good. We had a great view of the river from our room. The only thing that can be done is to update the furnishings, decor and flooring. With Embassy Suites opening up shortly and right beside this hotel, the competition will be stiff.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    We had a lovely view of the river and USS Carolina from our room. It was very quiet and cozy. Would love to visit again! We didn't try the continental breakfast because we were in a hurry to get to see the Veterans day parade but it smelled good. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. This is why I like Best Western so much!

    « Avoid if possible »

    This motel is in a great location, from the outside appears quaint, and has wonderful views of the river. Everything else about the place is sadly inadequate and not even a good value! The rooms have old furnishings, there's a tiny breakfast area, and the attempts at updating were poor. There are too many issues to list. Over a long weekend, there was also no parking due to the busy hall next door. Book at the Hilton a block away or the new Embassy Suites next door when it's complete.

    « SERVICE WITH A CAPITAL S »

    The location of this hotel is terrific: on the river, on the River Walk, within one-two blocks of the fun historic district and although we did not use the convention center, it is right at the hotel. The room had all the amenities as well as a very pleasant and helpful staff. And the best for us was allowing our gorgeous golden retriever to be with us! The $40 pet fee was reasonable to us. And also important is THE PERFECT SHOWER!!! and availability of a nice breakfast start. There were lots of choices for my yogurt as well as hot and cold food options.

    I went to the hotel for a two-day real estate class. The staff were all extremely nice and accommodating. The room they gave me, 306, has a beautiful view of the water, the pier (still working on) and the USS North Carolina. The hotel is right on river walk which has nice dining options.

    « Art Teachers Conference (Retreat) »

    The NC Art Education Association returned to Wilmington for their conference after many years. The new Conference Center was a great hit and the Best Wester Plus Coastline Inn was the most convenient, had the best staff and the best amenities. The association had reserves a block of rooms at the Hilton, but I could not get a Riverfront view room, so I booked one with Best Western (and got bonus points). It was an excellent decision and choice. The convenience, amenities and friendly helpful staff was far superior to those of the Hilton, according to several of my fellow art educators. I definately plan to return and bring my husband!

    Your location and views are terrific. The location is your no. 1 asset. There was quite a bit of construction going on, so it's obvious the area is in transition. When complete, it will be a place to stay for sure. Breakfast room is wanting due to the size. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and will be back.

    « Good location bad hotel »

    Hotel in desperate need of an update! The receptionist was wonderful and the location convenient, but there are much, cleaner better choices in the neighborhood. The hotel is 2 star at best. Would also like to point out that the lobby leads to an outdoor stairway or elevator to get up to the rooms. All room doors have immediate access outdoors. Doesn't feel safe or secure.

    Stayed here for just one night whilst on our road trip and enjoyed the stay. You can't get closer to the river even if the board walk right outside the hotel was being repaired when we were there. There is easy parking outside, just make sure you put the hotel notice in your vehicle. Rooms are on he small side but perfectly adequate and kept very clean. Beds are comfy too. Breakfast room is very small and there did not seem to be any hot water for tea on our visit - there was not anyone to ask for water either. (Note, we later found them sitting outside but by then it was too late.). The hotel is a delightful level walk along the river from the town centre and some lovely riverside restaurants. I would certainly stay there again if in town.

    « Great hotel, Convenient Location »

    We stayed at the BW last weekend while we were in town for a convention. We wanted to be close to the convention center (a short 2min. walk down the block), but still be able to walk into downtown Wilmington for dinner and shopping. This hotel was perfect for just that. Not only was it easy to get to with plenty of parking, free breakfast (with eggs, sausage, bacon, make-your-own waffle station, cereal, etc.), free wifi, but the water views were beautiful! The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and we had asked one of the maids to change our bed and bath towels after had forgotten to take the "DND" sign off of our door - she was more than happy to help. We were really happy with our stay and the best part was that the hotel even connects directly to the River Walk, which you can take right into downtown. Wilmington was absolutely beautiful & we can't wait to go back!

    « Has seen better days »

    We stayed here because it was the hotel associated with the conference center for an event we were attending. I'm sure it was a nice property at one time, but it has seen better days. Our room was dark and kind of dingy, with scratches in the paint on the walls, and stains in the carpet. The strangest part of our stay was the small child yelling for its mother at like 11pm somewhere outdoors on one of the upper levels of the hotel ? there is some kind of pier out to the river and it sounded like it was up there. Was it a real child, or a ghost? We left after one night because it was too depressing. Got to our new hotel and unpacked my shirt that had been hanging in the wardrobe, and realized that it smelled all musty and weird like this hotel.

    I checked in and received a free upgrade to a suite, I was very excited. I went to my room the first thing I saw as a roach in the relaxing beside the bed. The hotel staff quickly moved me to a standard hotel room, I was unpacking my suitcase to place in the drawers. The drawers were dirty, stained with lint and dust, I had to leave my undergarments in the suitcase. The floors were dirty but at this point I was tired and want sleep. The next morning I spoke with a fellow conference participant, he killed a roach crawling on him while he slept, he reported it to the hotel staff.

    Great location on one end of the Riverwalk, by the river. Construction work near the hotel made a lot of noise during the day and prevented access to the waterfront in front of the hotel.

    « Great Location, Best Price on Waterfront »

    We were booked at the Riverfront Suites, but after reading the numerous negative reviews, decided to stay at the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn, and so happy that we did. Got a great rate with our AARP card (which you can get at the age of 40 - and is worth the $16 annual fee). After a hot 2 hour drive with no A/C we were greeted and checked in by Roz. Roz was oustanding! She provided us with cold waters and cold beers, which we needed! Check-in was a breeze and Roz was a wealth of information about the area and events going on. Our room was waterfront. Very comfortable, updated room with nice views of the river and battleship. Easy walking distance to everything. Enjoyed the waterfront Friday night concert. Great hot breakfast was included. They also have a small exercise room on the property, along with lots of free parking. Other hotels were charging $11 a night to park on top of their expensive nightly rate, not here! Check-out by Roz was also a breeze.

    Good rates and centrally located business and pleasure travel. Management was pro-active in meeting my needs and ensuring that I was satisfied with my stay at their facility. Upon check in the room I had reserved was not ready and they had to switch me to a double bed room instead of the single king bed I had reserved. Since they did not have any of the type I reserved available the gave me a double bed room, but without me even asking the reduced my room rate to an acceptable level and the room I was assigned was VERY satisfactory. The WIFI connection was free and of excellent quality.

    Booked two rooms here as part of our east coast US driving holiday from Washington to Savannah. The rooms were small and damp and smelt of mould. Worst night sleep of the trip, glad it was only one night. We knew this was likely to be the lowest quality hotel of our trip, but the surprise was how much worse it was compared with the other hotels given the relatively high cost. Breakfast room was pathetic. Wifi very flakey.

There was a beautiful view of the Cape Fear River from our window, the TV was a little small, but it was palatable.

    We've been to L.A., NYC, Washington, Denver, Dallas, St Martin and many more. We've stayed at many 5 stars. So when my girlfriend told me we were staying at the Best Western I was a little shocked. Imagine my surprise when I enjoyed my stay here more than any other hotel we've stayed in. The rooms were clean and nice, although older they didn't feel old. The continental breakfast had fresh eggs, sausage and bacon as well as make your own waffles, bagels, toast, oatmeal and muffins. And most importantly the staff was absolutely the friendliest people I have ever met. They truly understood southern hospitality.

    Every room's windows face the river, breakfast was great. We had meetings at their attached convention center building. The Railroad Museum is in the same parking lot area. It is only a couple of blocks from the historic downtown area. The front desk staff is very helpful and knowledgeable.

    The hotel is right on the river,by the college and a few steps from all the shops and restaurants. Park the car and walk everywhere in town. Staff was really friendly, even while in training. We didn't have the breakfast this trip, but they did have a pretty decent selection from what we saw.

    Best Western Plus Coastline Inn was a great find for my business trip in Wilmington. The staff were wonderful, and I loved the view of the river even though there was a large crane outside my window working on a new boardwalk. The breakfast was also very good with many different choices. If business takes me back to Wilmington, I will definitely stay here again.

    « Very small rooms, but clean. »

    The hotel room was smaller than any others we have stayed in, but it was clean. The breakfast area was very small, yet tasty. The conference center directly beside the BW drew crowds of people which made parking in the hotel lot impossible. VERY FRUSTRATING! Lastly, our room did not have a microwave after being advertised as a standard amenity. Hotel staff was always very cordial. This hotel is only a quick walk to the downtown area. Biggest complaint over everything was the view of the HUGE barge with crane directly in front of the hotel & crews that started running a saw at 7am. It would have been nice to know that the area was under construction. All in all, we still had a nice visit in Wilmington.

    « Location is perfect »

    I stayed here because of it's proximity to downtown Wilmington and it was perfect. Wilmington has changed over the last several years and this place is in the perfect spot, not too noisy had to walk a couple of blocks, but it is just what I wanted it and we will be back again.

    « Great location and service »

    Took a quick trip to Wilmington for the first time and found this Best Western. Downtown, centrally located, on the river with a great view of the river and easy access to the riverfront. Unfortunately the boardwalk right in front of the hotel was being renovated by the city but that happens. Our room was nice, comfortable and quiet. The staff was wonderful especially Miss Juanita, affectionately known to all as "Granny". Everyone was very friendly. It had one of the best BW breakfasts I've had though the room was a bit small.

    « A Fourth of July Tradition »

    Love this location on the riverfront! All rooms are river facing. A pier extends from the second floor to out over the river. Perfect for viewing the Fourth of July fireworks!! We have stayed here for 4 or 5 yrs on the Fourth. Beats fighting the traffic after the fireworks!!! A little pricey! Stayed last week at a Best Western Plus in Georgia for almost half the price! Hope the city fixes the mess soon that they left when they pulled out the Riverwalk in that area then deserted it!! A ramp should be added for easier access to the Riverwalk instead of having to go out to the street. There is a nice ramp from the parking area to the hotel, but not down the 3 steps to the Riverwalk.We already have our reservation for next year!

Dealt with Ms.Roz,Antranece Alysha and Josh all of whom are exceptionally well trained,genuine/real and helpful beyond words with what you want to see, enjoy,spend,etc. A real nice touch is the rocking chairs in breeze ways where you can really relax and enjoy the river/ waterfront. The reasonable proximity to home owned restaurants is a real plus too. Bottom line We look forward to returning soon and highly recommend them and FINE Wilmington culture. They provide a good military rate and really value and respect your service. A true and rare DELIGHT. THANKS.

    If your thinking of doing the fire works from here I will say it's a perfect location. However by the time the fireworks start you'll be overrun by people who aren't staying here. They just knock down the barricades and move right in. Staff seems oblivious.

    « Great view of the water, but room was subpar »

    We stayed at the Best Western while attending a graduation. The location is great. It's within walking distance to the convention center which is why we selected that hotel (less than a 5-min walk). And the staff was super nice. The room was a different story. Didn't look anything like the website photos. It's an older hotel so I guess I should not have been surprised. The AC unit is in the window. We had an extension cord to provide additional outlets. The carpet was dingy and there was a smell emanating from the room. We booked a suite for our stay (family of 4). Even though the door hinges were there, we had no door to separate our room from the living area. There was just too much furniture in the cramped space. Besides that, the waterview from the room was beautiful. The bathroom had closet-like doors and it was clean. Breakfast is included. Make sure you get there early if you want fresher food.

    I really love this hotel! The service from the front desk, to breakfast area to room service is a notch above all others. Loved the shower stall, the view from our room was beyond wonderful, loved the rocking chairs on the second floor pier. Make sure to get a room on the top floor you can see out the window far! What a view. Don't let the exterior doors deter you because it's like a courtyard so no issues with safety and there is an elevator. Can't wait to go back! We had to adjust our stay and there was no problem and no cost for it! Thank You! Parking is free, internet is free!

    « Clean hotel with great staff! »

    What a wonderful place to stay!!! Our room overlooked the water and we had a clear view of the the Battleship. (How cool is that?!?!?!) Rooms were cleaned each day and new bathroom linens were left. The housekeeping staff even carefully folded our personal blanket and ensured our son's animals were neatly placed on the bed waiting to great our son after the days adventures. Sheets and bed linens were soft and not hard and scratchy like other hotels I've stayed in. Each room has a small fridge to keep things cold and a personal coffee pot for those early morning cups of coffee. Ask for a room on floor 2 if you want to be close to the ice maker but the 3rd floor to be close to breakfast in the morning. Ms. Juanita makes sure to great you with a smile each morning at breakfast and has prepared a wonderful spread. From cereal, toast, bagels, muffins and cinnamon rolls and let's not forget the make your own waffle station. Chase down all that deliciousness with some juice, milk or coffee. There fresh fruit available as well as yogurt and fruit salad cups. Served daily until 10:00am. This hotel is within walking distance of SO many things including the train museum. You can't go wrong staying here!!!

    « Great location - downtown Wilmington »

    This is really a very good hotel and very clean. Some of the wood furniture in our room was a little scuffed and could use replacing and the grout on the shower stall wall had some stains. But the staff was wonderful and the view of the river was incredible from our suite! The walk to the center of downtown by the river (Water and Market streets) is a comfortable 10 minutes.The free downtown trolly stops right in front of the hotel and runs every 20 minutes making all of the historic district very accessible.

    « Construction »

    There is construction south of the hotel- building another hotel. There is construction in the back preventing walking around the Riverwalk. The catwalk need some replacement- boards are very weathered. The room was very crowded with furniture. The bathroom shower was nice but water goal over the floor- liked the toiletries in the bathroom. The a/c during the night seemed to cycle on and off all night - leaving a damp feeling on the sheets and the floors and carpet damp. Breakfast was ok but the flow is backwards- the plates and utensils are in the back corner but the staff is very prompt to clear and wipe down tables. Fresh fruit in bowls were at each table- very nice. The outside corridor was ok but breezy. We visit Wilmington often and wanted to check out this hotel but I'm not sure if we will be back until after all the construction is finished.

    We stayed for 2 nights and the hotel was a good location for downtown. The staff were friendly and helpful. The car parking was limited but there was room for all the guests to park.

We checked in and took the walk all the way to the end and then found a cute outside restaurant for a drink and snack. Then we went back to our hotel and changed clothes and could walk to our restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. Great location. Fun trip!

    I enjoyed a week at this hotel. The room was smaller than I expected but there was plenty of outdoor space to make up for it. The view from my room was beautiful. I was able to see the boats from my bed or venture out on the decks when the weather was nice. I would stay here again!

    « Comfortable But Overpriced »

    A comfortable place to stay, but the room seemed crowded to me. Had stayed at another motel on the other side of town that was much larger and half the price. Staying at this motel you are paying for location...which I knew going into it. Still, after staying here, I think I would stay at another location with a better value as far as the room goes. Don't get me wrong...the room was fine as far as a place to sleep...but cramped if you plan on spending much time in the room during the day. The view of the river was very nice and the location along the River Walk can't be beat. But that's what you're paying for...the view and location, not so much the room which was average at best. I will say, the staff was exceptional...and that's certainly worth something. And I felt they did a pretty good job with the breakfast.

    « Nice people, not fully accessible »

    The staff are wonderful! The hotel is clean and right on the water (Cape Fear River) with a private pier. That said, the wheelchair access really should be better. The entrance to my room (the one with a roll in shower) was at least an inch high. ADA only allows a .25" threshold without a ramp, and the door was so heavy that I ended up stuck in the doorway more than once. The elevator is good, but the pier gate is another heavy obstacle. Breakfast was good and the lady there to help is a gem, but the room is small and the buffet is not wheelchair friendly. That said, it is beautiful and the best value in downtown Wilmington. I believe all of the guest rooms have a lovely sunset view.

    « Handicapped room not large enough »

    Very disappointed with room size. My husband's walker would not fit between bed and dresser to get to chair at the window. Thankfully he could walk to chair next to the window. Shower was excellent with rain shower head, toilet was low and not standard height for handicapped people. When we asked to change to another handicap room, we were told they were all the same size (3 of them), I don't see how a wheelchair could ever fit in the room. Housekeeping could have been better. Clean bath towels not replaced and bathroom waste basket not emptied. Also disappointed with breakfast area..........too small for walker when others were there. Wobbly stool at breakfast bar. We had to eat in our room with one of us using the table and the other eating off of our lap. Since room was small eating breakfast was not very enjoyable. Things that hotel had no control over were lack of enough handicap parking spaces, disturbance in next room which resulted in police coming and construction of riverwalk behind hotel. These were annoying but room size was the most problematic. We would not stay her again since we know other hotels have better handicapped rooms

    « Nice Place »

    This was our second stay at the Coastline Inn and when we got to Wilmington we looked for it. The check-in was without issue and when I had forgotten that we are VIP Best Western customers, the front desk looked it up to be sure we got credit for our stay. The hotel is an older one, with outside entrances but it is neatly arranged and in excellent condition. We had a corner room, next to a new hotel which is under construction but were not bothered by construction noise. The hotel is convenient to a number of restaurants and The Cotton Exchange, which is a local attraction. We spent two nights. Our room overlooked the Cape Fear River and we could glimpse the USS North Carolina through our window. Breakfast was very good and the staff very courteous. The bed was comfortable and the room neat and clean. It looks as though there have been recent renovations and, if so, they are well-done. Parking was adequate. The hotel is next to a Railroad Museum where we visited on our last afternoon in Wilmington. It is worth seeing for the model train exhibits alone but there are other interesting things to see as well. The hotel is convenient to major roads leading to Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach, both of which we visited while there. Traffic noise was non-existent. We enjoyed our stay very much and will return. BW does a great job.

    « A great reunion »

    The Best Western provided a wonderful location to hold a reunion for shipmates who served on board the USS Jallao. It is somewhat separated from the city, yet is very conveniently close enough to walk into town. The hotel itself provides rooms for gathering and conducting business. There is plenty of space to meet and talk, as well as socialize with old friends and shipmates. The room that I was provided had a view of the river, The bed was large and comfortable. The hotel staff kept the room clean and made sure we had whatever we required. Overall this hotel would be ideal for all sorts of venues, whether business meetings, family vacations, or almost anything requiring the ability to gather together.

    I have stayed in this hotel many times over the years, but not in a couple of years, this has been my last. The bed and pillows were so soft it nearly ruined my 2 days there, stiff neck and sore back both days! The bathroom was not super clean..... mold, dust, other people's bodily fluids on the wall! I wore shoes the entire time. On the up side the price was right and they have a good breakfast. Spend the extra 30 bucks and stay at the hilton. There was a lot of construction noise every morning, 7:30, on the dot, they are building an embassy suites next door!

    « Bleach Happy Housekeeping »

    Perhaps it's just one person who is heavy-handed, but all the rooms on the first floor were doused in bleach. Lucky for us the front desk guy was very understanding and patient. We found a room on floor 2 that smelled normal, but the fact that windows don't open is a huge downer. The rooms are small, but the view is nice and the location convenient. The lobby music adds ambience, but it leaks into the rooms which is rather unfortunate. They allow dogs, which is great and have a small area out front and some grass at the waterfront for DB. This hotel was ok for one night, but would not stay again.

    We came to the Best Western Plus Coastline Inn for our honeymoon on October 30th for 4 nights. The guy who checked us in, Josh, was absolutely phenomenal!!! He was beyond accommodating, and extremely professional. In fact, all of the staff were warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. The location is at the beginning of the River Walk, so you are in walking distance to all of the hot spots in terms of restaurants and night life. We didn't even have a real need to use our car while we were there. The view from our room was gorgeous, as it overlooked the water. Our room was spacious and clean, and the bed was oh-so comfy. Their housekeeping team does a great job. Although I am not much of a breakfast person, my husband is, and enjoyed it very much. We didn't use the gym, but from what we saw it looked better than the average gym you see in mid-range hotels since it had a few more machines. Whenever we come back to Wilmington we will for SURE stay here again!! Thanks, Coastline Inn!!

    « Nice place to stay and better value than the one down the street »

    We were in Wilmington for Ironman North Carolina. We booked our accomodations very very early - FEBRUARY for an October event. We planned to stay in town for three nights, but we could only get two nights - Friday and Saturday - at the other hotel. Best Western interestingly was very close, was less expensive, and had... only Thursday available. So we stayed at Best Western for the first night only. I wish we could have stayed here for the whole time. Besides being a lower rate, there was a complementary breakfast in the morning (very good), and was actually CLOSER to the convention center/finish line. Parking was complementary and easy. WiFi was included. Room was comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. When checking out, I left a bottle of Gatorade on the counter. The staff member quickly looked up my number and called me on my mobile phone before I had left the parking lot. Save! I really, really wish I could have stayed here for my whole trip. It wasn't in the cards. I would stay here again.

    This hotel is right on the river and there is a walk outside that takes you all along the river through the downtown district. Every room faces the river and it is literally steps away from the visitors' center which you should definitely visit. They had so many helpful ideas about what to do and where to eat. The hotel rooms are not large, but very modern and look like they were recently refurbished. There is a nice complete breakfast in the morning and you can eat in the breakfast room or the small porch area outside. The front desk people were very nice and let us check in early even though they had to change our room to accommodate us. There is a big convention center in back of the hotel so the parking might get tight on a night when they have a large group, but we found that we didn't need a car since the location was so close to everything.

    « Girl's Weekend for Wedding »

    The Best Western was a short taxi ride to the wedding venue which was 128 South. Our 2 rooms were both furnished with 2 double beds which is very cozy for 4 girls so we opted to bring air mattresses which were a very tight fit. Friendly front desk and great help getting a taxi during a rainy evening.Nice updated bathroom. Breakfast is fair I would stay here again but never with 4 girls to a room.

    The hotel and staff were lovely. My room was cozy and had a great view of the river. I loved the set up of the room with outlets near me so it was easy to plug in and charge devices while I slept yet they were still near me because let's face it I don't use the room clock for an alarm. Lastly, the access to the pier from the hotel was awesome. Though a public pier the hotel had hotel guest access and I spent the evening relaxing as the sun went down. Very nice.

    « Best Western Plus Coastline Inn, Wilmington, NC »

    Best Western Plus Coastline Inn in Wilmington, NC was totally an awesome stay. The location on the river has beautiful views of the area and the Battleship. Many things in the area are in walking distance like boat rides, shopping, dancing and many places to dine. In addition there is a boardwalk for you to walk. We really enjoyed that. The staff at this hotel are very professional and helpful. You will not be disappointed! Will be staying here again in the near future.

    Amazing staff, great views, and affordable. This was a great find, easy access to the downtown via the riverwalk and each room has a view of the river. Rooms were small, but nice. They have a private deck where you could have a beer and enjoy the river.

    The best part of this hotel is the easy walking distance to downtown Wilmington District, The hotel staff were very friendly, breakfast was basic and the fitness room wasn't well maintained, the running machine did not work. The rooms are old, dated and need modernising, the safety deposit boxes are kept at reception and there is no outside seating area and our room overlooked the river but there's no balcony or windows that can be opened.

    « A very nice place to stay »

    As a business traveler, I'm loyal to my favorite hotel chain, except when they are full! So I chose the Best Western for my week long stay. I really like this property. I love the free self parking. They have a complementary breakfast which offers a wide range of breakfast options and my favorite, bottomless coffee! My room had a wonderful view of the river. The rooms are well appointed; mine had a king bed AND a couch that has a pull out bed. Also, they have a fridge and many other items you've come to expect at any other hotels. I think my family of four would do well in a room such as this. The people are friendly and felt they provided great service. Is there anything I don't like? The result of the in-room coffee maker is very bad coffee. I tried it once and decided to wait till breakfast which was light years better! I think the biggest compliment I can give a hotel is to join their loyalty program and I did because if all Best Westerns are like this I want to keep coming back.

    « Resort Level Service »

    The most incredible thing about this hotel is the level of service you receive. The service at this hotel is more like what you may expect to receive at a resort rather than hotel. Everyone on the staff is courteous and polite, and I do mean everyone - every clerk, every housekeeper, every maintenance person. Not only are they extremely pleasant but they go out of their way to try to make sure you are having as comfortable a stay as possible. The rooms are well kept, exceptionally clean, and comfortable. Every single room has a water view, which is a nice bonus! I would recommend a room on a higher level to have the best views, but truthfully, any room would be enjoyable. The men and women at this hotel define excellence in customer service.

    « Good value, but some downfalls »

    Pros: Pet friendly ($20/day charge), River views, walkable to downtown, free bfast, reasonable rates. Cons: Bugs in our room (lots of ants & flies) Strong musty smell, king suite had a tv in the bedroom but not in the sitting room (but had a spot for it), and tiny bathroom. Not our best experience with best western but overall a good deal.

    « Not what I expect from Best Western »

    I was surprised with the hotel in Wilmington. It wasn't what I expected from a Best Western. The lobby was very small. The room had a musty odor and the A/C was rather noisy. The bathroom was rather small although clean. When they cleaned our room, they didn't leave any towels but upon calling the front desk, they immediately brought some. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone and will not return.

    « One-of-a-kind room! »

    My wife and I just recently got married and took a mini honeymoon to Wilmington. We booked the "Tower Room" at this hotel, and it gave us the best views and layout I've ever experienced in a hotel room! If you're looking for a room with the absolute best views, sunlight, and uniqueness, book the Tower Room! Multi-levels of amazing and separation! It rises above the rest of the hotel and overlooks the river from multiple sides. You also have a magnificent view of the USS North Carolina battleship, and if you're lucky the Coast Guard cutter Diligence will be docked for port. We caught it one day during our stay, and was able to watch it cast off for their next 10 day trip. The views are so amazing we never shut our window curtains and blinds...not even at night. The upper loft level offered a very comfortable king size bed facing the river. The lower level had a living room with a mini kitchen. The bathroom was enormous. Very nice walk-in shower and even a nice separate soaking tub. The place was very clean and organized. The entire staff was extremely nice, pleasant, and helpful. Haven't seen that kind of customer service in a long time. Maintenance had a handful of trouble areas. The downstairs TV didn't work (which didn't matter to us...there's a TV upstairs too). It was much hotter upstairs in the loft than it was downstairs (there was only 1 vent upstairs in the loft). Some of the furniture was pretty worn with scrapes in the wood, etc. None of that stuff would prevent us from booking this room again though! One special note...if you need internet during your stay, you'll have to go into the lobby or a common place. Internet in the Tower is horrible and doesn't work hardly at all (even though it has it's own connection). Breakfast was surprisingly good, and even had fresh fruit. The pier attached to the hotel was a nice plus. You can literally walk everywhere downtown. The hotel is on the Riverwalk, which is a very scenic and enjoyable walk along the river and entire length of downtown. We walked it several times during our stay. You can even take the water taxi across the river to the battleship, which was very convenient. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance too! Wrightsville Beach was only a 20 minute drive as well. I hope to make it back to this hotel sooner than later, and book this same room! Hopefully the small maintenance issues will be worked out by then. Check out my pics to see what the room looks like...you WON'T be disappointed! Another tip, if you don't do well with stairs, stay away from this room. The staircase from the front door to the living space is lengthy, and then another staircase from the living area to the bedroom loft.

    We were truly impressed by the experience we had at the Best Western Coastline Inn in Wilmington - the facility, room, public areas, breakfast area, exercise room were all modern, clean and in top working order. The location , right on the river front was perfect - we loved looking across the river at the US N. Carolina battleship and havign a train museum right in the parkign lot. The directions were easy to follow and parking was ample - we defintley will be returning.

    « Don't use "Booking.com" »

    We arrived late and checked into the fully booked hotel without issue. However, we saw a couple trying to check in from Ontario Canada. They had driven to Wilmington, NC from Canada after booking a room on "booking.com." Well upon arrival the hotel never got the reservation. The manager was yelling at "booking.com" on the phone trying to get them into another hotel. Good for him. The family had been waiting for a few hours trying to get a room because the city was sold out of rooms and their child was screaming now and upset. We found our room very nice with a nice river view. The bathroom had a rain shower without a door we enjoyed. It was a big shower. However, housekeeping missed a few spots and they lost points for that. For example, water spots on the glass shower screen, a dusty toilet paper holder, and in general small things that needed better attention. The bed slept well and I had a nice view in the morning. We ate breakfast in the hotel. A very attentive attendant was working in he area taking care of things nicely. The area was small with only 4 tables but additional seating was provided against the wall around the room. I believe the breakfast room was an old hotel room. Breakfasts are becoming an expiation of guests nowadays. This room needs to be larger. The food was good and had a good variety. I recommend it. Parking was easy in a large lot in front of the hotel. After visiting the Battleship North Carolina we returned to the room. As we entered the lobby guess what? Another patron was standing in the lobby without a room. They too had used "booking.com." There is no pool but within walking distance. There are small "chick" stores. There are benches for men to wait upon. A very small railroad museum is just outside the hotel lot in walking distance. This really would be a nice romantic hotel, if it only had a pool. In any event, the view was nice and for the most part everything was clean.

    Good location close to Front Street where lots going on. There is a free trolley which passes the entrance to the car park about every 20 minutes which can take you into the historic district if it is too hot to walk or you don't want parking meter charges. The hotel is clean and the staff helpful. The river views fabulous. They do a complimentary breakfast which is perfectly good it covers all the basics. The rooms on the small side we had a double and the bathroom was what estate agents might call bijou that's small to you and me.,

    Really nice place with great views close to Riverwalk. Shared parking lot with Coastline Conference Center. Walked directly to workshop. Especially nice is the wooden ramp from the parking lot to the entrance. No need to carry stuff up steps. Night staff very welcoming and helpful. Room was very nice, clean, and oh so comfortable. The walk in shower with the rain shower was the best! The towels were thick and fluffy and plentiful. I had a king, and was surprised at the spaciousness of the bathroom. The sheets were baby blanket soft and thick. Best I've ever slept on. Elevator and stairs to room levels. TV and wi-fi worked great. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Seating area is on the small side, so timing when you eat is important. Hotel walkways go right to riverwalk to shops and restaurants. Water Street to Grace or Front Street gets you to shops and places to eat within minutes. Hotel faces Cape Fear Community College parking deck. College town atmosphere. Lots of people out and about even after 10 pm. Feels very safe to go out at night, even for a 60 something grandma traveling solo. Mostly foot traffic here. Lots of pedestrian walkways. Walked around for 90 minutes before getting dinner. Grace's is the place to go! Fresh caesar salad with grilled chicken and drinks for less than $15. Brent and his staff made me feel right at home. Will definitely come back here next time I go to the beach.

    Our room was on the second floor with a beautiful view of the Cape Fear River and we had access to the hotel pier overlooking the river. Less than a mile walk to Downtown Wilmington and access to the River Walk. We enjoyed our stay and the continental breakfast prepared each morning. There were eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, waffles (make your own!), coffee, apple juice, orange juice, and milk. The breakfast times were good (6:30 am to 10:30 am). We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and it was a great price for the three days we stayed!!

    Nice place with good views. Pretty quiet. Staff good. Cleaning staff very helpful. Great place for pets! However, there are smokers here too in front of the lobby and in the breezeways. This is a problem if you despise like cigarette smoke, like us. But, it is manageable and not constant. Wilmington itself is full of smokers so I guess it's the culture and area. I'd stay here again(hotel) but not likely to visit Wilmington again.

    « Great Hotel »

    This is our favorite hotel in Wilmington. The customer service of the whole staff can't be beat and the river view from the rooms is great. Right on the riverwalk you can easily walk and explore the downtown area but you aren't in the "noisy" part of town. The only thing that would make this hotel better would be an outdoor pool.

    « Nice View and Kind Staff »

    The hotel was very pleasant and nice. The view from our room was very nice. The only downside is that we had 5 people staying in a single room. The rooms are smaller. That is alright because it was an overnight stay. We had a Uhaul trailer that they had a lot of room for us to accomodate our stay. The continental breakfast is very good and worth it. This city has 2 hotels on the river walk but this one is worth trying it out.

    « What a great staff! »

    We arrived at this hotel in the middle of a horrific summer squall, non-stop lightening and blowing rain. After about 15 minutes, when the storm did not abate, he and the front desk manager and a housekeeping person came out to help me get inside the hotel (I have trouble walking, especially on wet slick tile steps. They could not have been more accommodating - keeping us in the lobby, as our room was on the top floor, and accessible by elevator only, with the power in and out, good thing to just wait! After a good 45 minutes we felt safe enough to go up to our room which was very nice. Out the window was a beautiful view of the river below, with the Battleship North Carolina and several other large ships. After a short rest we went downstairs to ask for directions to a restaurant and Josh, the front desk manager was so helpful - he even printed a map for us that even I could follow! Next morning, same thing, he was just getting off and stopped to recommend a breakfast/lunch eatery and again gave explicit directions. It's so nice to stay at a place where the staff is so helpful and so cheerful while doing so! Good job Best Western!

    « Fabulous Location »

    We find the Best Western hotels in the USA are all of a certain standard and this one did not disappoint. The hotel is located next door to the Railroad Museum, a convention centre and also the visitor centre, which is very useful. There is free parking (a shared car park for all of the neighbouring properties). Reception will give you a ticket to place in your car. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. There is a small kiosk behind reception desk with various drinks and snacks. The room (on the third floor) was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of Cape Fear river and Battleship USS North Carolina on the river (now a museum). You can take River Walk from the hotel to the historic district in less than 10 minutes. The hotel has it's own pier, the upper level is for guests only. A peaceful location to watch sunset from. Breakfast is on the third floor. There's a good selection of food but the room is quite small.

    « Not truthful about pet rooms »

    We stayed for the 4th July. The room was fairly nice and clean, but we wanted to be on the 2nd or 3rd floor to see fireworks. We were told only the 13 rooms on the first floor were pet friendly. Later in the day we saw multiple dogs going up the elevator to higher floor rooms. When I asked the front desk, I was told since all the pet friendly rooms had sold out, they were allowing pets to be in the other rooms. These people should have been told the rooms were sold out. Even if these rooms are "deep cleaned" as I was told, dog hair gets everywhere and can still affect nonsuspecting people with allergies. This was very deceiving of the hotel.

    Having stayed at hotels all over the world, I rate the Coastline Inn, Wilmingtron, NC, as one of the best. Our rooms (2 ) were immaculate, as was the lobby and breakfast area. The bed was comfortable; hotel staff were friendly and efficient. When we asked for a recommendation for a pizza delivery, the desk clerk quickly recommended a family owned restaurant.

    This hotel has a beautiful view of the river and literally steps from the river walk. The Marina is right next door alongside the convention center. Downtown is a short walk away. The only negative thing I have to say is not to get a room on the 3rd floor. We stayed in room 310 which is right across from the breakfast room. There is a breezeway with tables due to small space to eat. It opens at 6am, and I guarantee you that if you stay on the 3rd floor, you will be awakened by noisy guests eating right outside your door very early! Other than that, the staff could the more friendly and the room more accommodating.

    So I came to this hotel for a work conference. When my wife and I first got to the hotel, the front desk staff was very in the ball. Which made check in easy and painless. As we were moving our luggage in through the lobby toward our room, the front desk worker had a remote to the door and they would open it for you. Our room was a little complicated to get to with a luggage cart because there were some turns that were a bit hard to negotiate, but it was nothing I could not handle. When we opened the door however we were a little shocked that the room was so small. I barely fit the luggage cart in because there was hardly any room in it. The room had a King size bed, which was a bit large for the size room we had. The bathroom was a good size for the size room we had. Would have liked to have had a regular door for that instead of the mini double door. The shower was awesome and it was great to use. The room was clean, however when housekeeping came by to clean we asked if they could come back later, but we really needed some towels. The lady said ok, and came back to clean the room later, however she forgot the towels. This hotel is located close to a lot of places to eat and there is a good view of the Cape Feat River and the Battleship North Carolina. Overall it was a decent hotel for a couple of nights stay for work.

I will definitely stay here again.

    When we came into our room, the smell of chlorine overwhelmed us to the point we got headaches. Later we found out that the cleaning staff "really likes to have everything to have a clean smell" and had obviously liberally used Tilex (which we saw in the cleaning staff cart). We were offered three other rooms, two of which were on the same 4th floor as the original room and another on the bottom floor where pets were obviously allows from the strong smell that "welcomed us." We opted for the strong chlorine smell over the pet odor.

    Location is the best part of staying at this hotel. The rooms are nice typical hotel rooms however they are a bit small. The service was good, the room was clean and the convenience of being able to walk everywhere with a pretty view was the best. The rooms are pricey in my opinion, just paying for location. It was a nice stay, just nothing spectacular.

    « Great location and nice hotel »

    I've stayed here twice in the last 2 years with my wife. Location is great. 5-10 min walk to any downtown destination and great views of the water from your room. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Breakfast each morning consists of coffee, milk, oj, cereal, instant oatmeal, instant grits, scrambled eggs, bacon and you can make your own waffle. Only complaint I have is they only have 1 waffle maker and it takes 2.5 mins to make a waffle so sometimes it gets backed up. Would be nice if they had 2 waffle makers.

    This was my first trip to Wilmington and won't be my last. I always do my homework on choosing my hotels. I hit the jackpot on this trip! I was concerned about the outside entry to rooms but once I got there it was laid out very well. We stayed in the tower room. Although you must navigate the stairs with your luggage, reaching the room, the views are tremendous! Almost 360* view. The bed was very comfortable, I need one at home! I recommend this room for a romantic get away. The staff is friendly and gracious. While they were all great I want to give a big shoutout to annitreace. She was so helpful when we checked out and she has a beautiful smile! We were a short walk from shops, bars and great food choices. I had a great weekend and can't wait to return.

    Hotel was right on the water, walking distance to charming downtown Wilmington. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Room was well appointed and the bed was great. I was attending a conference and my wife was accompanying me. We took full advantage of the facilities and the shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are going to be in the Wilmington area. Please go see the Battleship USS North Carolina, it's well worth the effort.

    « A Disappointing Experience »

    The hotel's location was great. However, we must have had the smallest room in the hotel. The rug looked like it was never cleaned, and the furniture was very dusty. I am not a clean freak, but I was uncomfortable with this. I was afraid to walk in my bare feet! Ask for a large room with at least 2 beds.

    A last minute change of plans had us scrambling to find a dog friendly hotel near Wilminton, NC. Lucky us, we found this Best Western Coastline Inn.

    « Pretty Decent for the Price »

    I stayed at this hotel for a business conference. A discounted rate was offered for attendees. This hotel has an excellent exterior brick structure. The lobby is pretty small. The rooms have exterior doors but the hotel is "enclosed". I didn't get a chance to sample the breakfast, but there was a variety of fruits displayed on the 3rd floor. The room I had was a king bed, with river views. The bathroom was pretty well updated as well as the furniture. Overall this hotel was a budget-friendly option with up-to-date furnishings.

    We had another very nice stay at the Best Western Coastline Inn. The staff is so friendly and helpful and the view of the boardwalk and battleship is an added bonus.

    Good location, very friendly / helpful staff. All interactions very pleasant. Nice facility, get a room with a river view, interesting ship traffic from time to time. Only thing I could suggest is the breakfast room is really small, no problem if you're taking things back to your room, but finding seating at a popular time can be a challenge. Wifi worked well. I'd re-book if going back to Wilmington.

    « Decent and Convenient »

    Conveniently located and on the water, this hotel seemed nice for the price. Unfortunately, my stay wasn't so nice. Upon checkin, I was given a third floor room overlooking the water until I mentioned that I am accompanied by a service animal. After finding out that I had a disability and was going to be accompanied by my service animal, we were immediately reassigned a first floor corner room across from the service closet. We were aggressively awakened before sunrise each morning by the slamming and squeaking wheels coming in and out of the door about three feet from ours. There was also beeping from the golf cart that is parked outside our door. Needless to say, neither my dog nor my girlfriend got much sleep during our stay. I felt discriminated against and won't be returning.

For those who travel with pets the hotel is pet friendly with a nice manicured area to take your dog to. As far as security the hotel only has one entrance in and out and that is through the lobby. One of the best pets is that it is all exterior corridors.

The hotel is within walking distance of anything one might need. They even accommodated my request during the online booking for a hand-drawn cat to be placed on the bedside table for my fiancee. I forgot about that one until we checked in. I got a laugh out of the fiancee and laughed with the staff about it later. We had a good trip and the hotel played a big role in that.

    Let me start by saying that my husband and I live in Wilmington. We just wanted to have a little "stay-cation" for valentines day weekend. The price and location of the hotel were why we booked it. We wanted to go out Sat night and be in walking distanced to dinner and everything and then just have a place to crash. The best western was great. Check-in was super easy, our room was very clean and updated, and even though there was a wedding happening at the convention center and it was a sat. night we didnt hear any noise.

    We arrived late, and the heat was not on in the room. It was in the 40's, so the room was freezing. The bed was hard as a rock. Every time one of the adjacent units' doors was closed, our entire room shook. The gate to the riverwalk was frequently left open, meaning anybody could walk right up to your door.

    A gem of a hotel right on the Riverwalk in downtown Wilmington. Pet friendly with very friendly hotel staff! Drive in and walk the rest of your trip! The bed wasn't the most comfortable but the room was very clean. We really had all that we needed. The pet policy allows two dogs up to 80 pounds each, for $20/day.

    « ON the river! »

    There are many stellar reviews for this hotel. We stayed two nights recently. I booked the room from my phone on the way to Wilmington. We were greeted warmly by the font desk and they indeed had our reservation. We ended up with a first floor room facing the river. The room was ADA compliant with a roll in shower - we didn't need that, but I must say, it makes for a nice shower! The room was very clean, a little on the small side, but plenty for two people for a weekend. Breakfast is typical continental with a few hot choices (waffles, weird eggs) and plenty of hot coffee. We were also pleasantly surprised by a pretty decent fitness room with weight machines and three cardio choices. I would suggest having some sort of anti-bacterial wipes to wipe down equipment after use. Overall, for just over $100 a night with free parking and free breakfast, this is a good deal - book online as calling the hotel directly was quite a bit more!

    We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend with our family, (my husband, me and 3 kids, 1 of which was a baby) and had an amazing time. Wilmington is a gorgeous city and this hotel was truly a gem. Our room was spacious with a kitchenette, separate bedroom from living room and big bathroom. Which is a treat for our big family to find an affordable hotel with space for us all to breath. We did stay in a King Suite on the 4th floor and all windows overlooked the Cape Fear River for gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The hotel was in walking distance of restaurants and shops and was a quick ride over to the battleship and not far from the beach. There was also a model train museum right next to the hotel that was set up with Christmas lights that was fun o see as we entered the hotel. The hotel staff was very kind and courteous and parking was free!! The only cons I would say would be the continental breakfast was not the best and the rooms were a little dated. Neither of these reasons were a big enough problem for us to complain. When we go back to Wilmington we will stay here again!

    The room was nicer than expected once I realized it was off an outdoor hallway. Very comfortable beds. good price for being so convenient to the convention center. The shower arrangement was unusual, but adequate and the room had an odd smell to it, but not too overpowering. it is comparable to other hotels when you are in the room, but having to go outside to get to the front desk and breakfast might be unpleasant if the weather had not been so nice. it really is close to all the riverfront and downtown activities, but you need to drive to get to the beach.

The building is neat and clean, the rooms were large and clean, and the staff was friendly. It was quiet at night despite the fact that there were two wedding parties staying there. The breakfast room is a little small for the size of the hotel but it wasn't a bad breakfast. It didn't compare to the ones at the Hyatt Place, but it was okay and there was staff there to make sure it was all hot and clean. The price was a little high for a Best Western, but I guess that has to do with the location. Would stay here again.

    This is the second time we have stayed here. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well appointed, although, as you would expect from a place close to the centre of a city, not quite as large as some a bit farther out. We had a room on the fourth floor facing the river with a great view of Cape Fear, and of the battleship USS North Carolina which make a brilliant 3 hour (plus) tour. The hotel shares a car park with a convention centre to the left side of the building, and the Railroad Museum on the right, which is well worth a visit, too. There is a Visitor centre located via a separate door behind the museum. It is within walking distance of the city centre and the tour buses, both trolley and horse drawn, and the boat trips. there are some great restaurants along the river front, and in the Town Square area which is bustling and lively. The hotel is not the cheapest we have stayed at, but the location is perfect. It has the outward appearance of an old railway station and very elegant. If we visit the area again, this is definitely where we will stay.

    Room was very nice, clean, friendly staff and with a lovely river view but it seemed pretty basic with the exception of the mini fridge which was nice to store my Southern Comfort. I could see the battle ship from my room. It's just a few feet from the river walk, visitor center, and the railroad museum which was nice. No vale or door person. Just go in, register, grab a cart, load, go through a very small lobby and through a narrow automatic door to a conveniently located elevator. All rooms are only accessible from outdoor balconies and they don't face the river. The view is from the inside of your room. Overall its a nice hotel. I might stay there again with special friends but you're pretty much paying for the view of the river.
