  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

We have stayed here in the past. We are keeping in mind the pandemic going on around us. The room was clean. The area we stayed in is very old . It had been renovated, however not everything. The toilet is 20” off the ground. Your knees are virtually above you when you sit down. There are no grab handles as it sits in a corner. Very unusual and needs to be replaced too. The bathtub and sink drained very slow . The sink was shallow do you could barely get your hands under the tsp. The staff were friendly but only one person checking us in- must have waited Atleast 20 min for this to happen. Pool was closed. No frig in room and none available. We recommend clearer instructions for Covid procedures that are available to clients when they checkin. For example no instructions on what to do with garbage in the room, and no info on towel replacement or room service by staff. The room was still too expensive in lieu of the lack of service @ $159/nite. There is a lot of noise dust and loud construction in front of the hotel. We wouldn’t stay again!

All in all it was a good stay. Room was clean. The front desk staff was really nice and sweet. Answered any questions we had. Even the guy helping outside who was velvet was nice. We stayed during covid 19 so pool was closed unfortunately and a couple of other things so i cant comment on that. We did use the coffee shop and while the coffee was good i feel like the woman who was there was not so nice. Kinda rude and short with my husband and i. My husband went down again another day and he said she was even ruder than before. So maybe she stressed im not sure but even alittle smile goes along way. The only part i didnt like was the wjole parking situation. 15$ a night for parking i wasnt aware of the fee and also i couldnt even park there one of the nights because it was all full. Why should you charge for parking when you have a parking lot JUST for your guests? And you already charge so much anyways.thats really the only part that irked me. The hotel was in walking distance to pretty much everything! So that was really helpful. I would stay there again just i guess letting people know about ALL the fees and do something about parking .

    The look is modern. The hotel is on the river and in the middle of everything e.g. bars and Restaurants. Most places are only 10 minutes always. You’re Able to walk the boardwalk and the rooms have nice views. Staff are super friendly and professional. Boat rides on the cape fear river are offered.
