Spring Joy

Posted 15-Apr-2015
Pros: Location and friendly staff.
Cons: Adding a microwave would be an improvement.
Location: The River Walk is just outside the hotel. All the downtown shops are within easy walking distance.
We were given tickets as a retirement gift to a concert that was being held near the hotel. Had just planned on going to the concert and returning home, but decided to look for a room close by to beat the traffic and parking issues. I was pleasantly surprised to find a room at the Best Western Coastline Inn still available. The room was clean and well maintained, although somewhat smaller than I expected. This did not pose a problems as we stayed only the one night. There was a frig in the room that we almost missed as it was inside a cabinet, but I did miss having a small microwave. Other than this, the view from the room was beautiful and the River Walk is just outside. A lovely short trip.

"Pet Friendly" Means Only Dogs?!

Posted 06-Apr-2015
Pros: I've stayed here before and would stay here again.
Location: Near historic downtown, shopping, and restaurants. The Ghost Tour is a MUST! I go every time I stay overnight in Wilmington! Great stories and fun!
I called ahead to request a pet-friendly room. The clerk did not ask what type of pet I was bringing, only stated the $20 fee and a deposit was needed. Upon checking in I was told that the "pet-friendly" rooms were only for dogs. However, he would attempt to get approval for my cat to stay. The housekeeping staff was clocking out for the day and noticed my cat; they were all complimenting me on how cute she was, and was asking why she was in a cone. When I told them we were visiting for a check up after her eye surgery they all came around the desk to see her. Just then the desk clerk came back and said that it was okay the cat stayed in the room. I don't think that the housekeeping staff would have let us leave. Otherwise, the room was nice, had a beautiful view of the river. The bathroom has weird doors that don't function well, and the shower is a strange set-up that leaves much to be desired from a hot shower.

Good hotel with water view in historic district.

Posted 01-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, staff, parking, breakfast.
Cons: Better bathroom doors. Without center crack. Room had been sprayed with something that was a nasal irritant.
Location: Great location on Riverwalk. within walking distance of restaurants and shops.
Overall a good experience. Hotel staff very accommodating i.e. easy check-in and out help with dining recommendations and reservations. Breakfast was very good with an attendant to assist with every need.

Very dated. Not the cleanest.

After refusing one room due to animal hair, the second room was not much better. Expected a decent room without broken furniture, patched holes in the walls, missing grout in tile shower floor, etc.

Convenient to lots of things.

Was there for a meeting at the Hilton next door. This hotel had a better rating and lower price. Close enough to Myrtle Beach to drive down for dinner. Also took a side trip to Southport and the NC Aquarium, which I highly recommend.

Just passing through. Comfortable room, great river view. Staff was excellent. Accessability is a little tough, but a nice spot just out of the downtown bustle

Great place for a great price.

Posted 19-Dec-2014
We stayed at Best Western Coastline several times and have been impressed. you are on the waterfront. it is dog friendly and a great price. in the spring and summer the restaurants along the board walk, which is right beside the hotel, let's you sit outside and eat with your dog. great place to walk and you are in a great location within walking distance to many restaurants, shops and bars, many of which have bands.
