I stay here at least once a month while in Wilmington for business. For what ever reason, it is always damp and musty smelling on first floor around elevators. Not welcoming when you come in but the rooms always seem alright.

If disgust was a person
They didn’t have our rooms together. Check in clerk had her kid behind the counter. There was a person sleeping in one of our rooms. The next clerk blamed us for getting food without checking the room.
