Great Location

Posted Jan 3, 2017
Pros: Location and friendliness of the staff.
Stayed at this hotel for a night to enjoy a walk on the beach. We had to ask to be moved to another room since the initial room was not quite what we expected when we booked for an harbor view. The staff graciously honor our request and moved us to a room when we can view the harbor and the ocean at the same time.

"Smells like a fish tank" from my 12 year old

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: The location and the 3rd floor lobby
Cons: I could spend all day....
When my daughter opened the door and proclaimed "It smells like a fish tank!" I knew we had made a mistake. Unfortunately, this hotel is in major need of a renovation. I booked one of the much sought after "Family Suites" based on a visit last October through the 3rd floor lobby and a conversation with the person at the front desk. I should have asked to see the rooms!!!! The family suite bathroom is in the master bedroom space so the kids were traipsing in and out of our room the entire time. The whole entire suite layout is uncomfortable. I'm not sure the purpose of the kitchenette since there was literally NOTHING in any of the cabinets or drawers? The air conditioner, located next to the bed, sounded like a freight train and it turned off and on every 15 minutes, the shower faucet dripped the entire time, the room smelled, the bathroom was disgusting. Considering that the expense of this "Family Suite" rivaled what we paid for our room at Animal Kingdom in Disney - I would say that this experience was an epic fail!!! ASK to see the room first at this hotel!!!

Nice location, too expensive for the quality

You can not charge that amount of money when the hotel is in a run down condition, even if it is high season. For that money we can go to an all inclusive in the Caribean.

Tranquil!

Posted Aug 25, 2016
Overall our stay at the holiday inn at Wrightsville beach was fabulous! well run... Manager was fabulous Se was always there on premises all the time ... Steel drum band was wonderful ... Definitely returning next year ... My only complaint would be kids 10 and under should not be allowed in the hot tubs! Also can you rent chairs on the beach would be another what you guys can make some money and be more convenient for the guests and dragging chairs with them ? Perhaps you did I just didn't see it ! Very very nice place ! In hotel restaurant was very delicious chef was great . Beds were cozy rooms were clean 😊🌴

Beach resort

Beautiful view after asking for an upgrade. Staff friendly. Pool needs more frequent cleaning and indoor pool area smells foul. Overall would go again

Very enjoyable experience.

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Everything....staff, room, pool, location, food, etc.
Cons: Nothing !!!
Location: Great beach, good restaurants, large mall nearby, 15 minute ride to airport.
Unexpectedly very high quality for a holiday inn. I have not stayed in one for many years. Every aspect of the resort was superior.

It was okay...

Posted Apr 3, 2016
Nothing spectacular or memorable. Wish they had minibars in the hotel rooms, and it'd be nice if the restaurant and bar stayed open past 10:00 on weekdays and 11:00 on weekends. TVs in the rooms had terrible picture quality too but luckily we only turned them on late at night before bed...
