I LOVE all of the cash I saved!!

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Pros: The value
Cons: not a thing
Location: Right in the middle of Market Street, downtown Wilmington is 10 minutes away, and the beach about 20 minutes. Tons of restaurants..........
I've been here many times this year and last, and it's always a positive experience. Clean dated room, with great WIFI and TV. The HVAC is quiet and reliable, and there's a security guard watching the parking area.

If you're complaining, you're not paying attention

Posted Feb 4, 2017
Pros: the rates and retro-ambiance
Cons: any chance we could get a Led Zeppelin reunion concert in the parking-lot? ( I'd really like that...)
Location: Classic Wilmington.....left to the Battleship, and right to a delicious ocean....
There are many motel / hotels in Wilmington, and none work harder for a trouble-free experience than these guys. If you stay here and expect a 5 star experience, you're just looking for something to complain about. Admit it, you booked ABV for the rates, and this is the best, by far, of all the 2 star choices in Wilmington. If you have trouble with reliable WIFI, open the WIFI tab and search for the one with the best signal...there are many choices. The staff, the housekeeping, all have been highly professional during my many stays this year and in the past. Consider value added as retro-chic ,and check your wallet when all is done. Great TV and HVAC, and in my experience, flawless, reliable, fast WIFI. Keep doing what you're doing ABV.....I'll be back (room 134 please??)

1980's chic at rock-bottom prices...

Posted Dec 15, 2016
Pros: value and the security guard
Cons: not a thing
Location: Right on restaurant row.....
I LOVE this place...takes me back to when I used to come to Wilmington for a week-end excursion. It hasn't changed much, and that's okay by me....except for the killer WiFi and great cable TV. The HVAC worked great, the girl at the front desk was super-friendly and helpful...AND..... I usually bring my own instant coffee and accessories, but this time I'd run out of sugar. I went to the office and was surprised at how complete the free breakfast selection was....huge cinnamon buns and all kinds of muffins and warm cereal. I've stayed at all of the 2 stars in Wilmington, and this is by far the best.....I'll be back!

the Taj Mahal it ain't, but check your wallet....

Posted Nov 21, 2016
Pros: value
Cons: not a thing at these rates
Location: the ocean is 20 minutes away, and all of downtown Wilmington the same in the opposite direction...
I've been here over 10 times in the last 8 months (business in the area..) and all times, basic clean room with killer WiFi and a great TV.....the HVAC is flawless and quiet, the cat at the front desk is more than helpful about anything. Wanna complain about discolored wallpaper or you saw a bug? Get out your wallet. I've seen all of the 2 stars in this area, and this is the best....(they have an on-site security guard)
