Wasn't really much to brag about, lady was nice after my lovely girlfriend talked to her.
We got there about 9 pm, the first room we were put in had 2 dead roaches right in front of us on the carpet and it had an awful stench, can definitely tell its been vacant for a while. I returned to the front desk, I apologized for being a pain, but I wasn't going to let us stay in that room. The second room was a little better, till we seen the amount of body hair in the shower and the sheets. My girlfriend returned to the front desk and got us a third try. This room was cleaned that morning. We made it work... if you are staying in Wilmington, spend the extra couple of dollars stay at the beach or downtown. Not worth your hassle and your money, cheap, ripoff whatever you want to call it. Howard Johnson should really take their name off it. Horrible representation.
I like the location of the Hotel.
When I checked in on Sunday, the tub was dirty and was not cleaned until Tuesday (I asked Monday). The room had a strong smell of urine-- I bought a bottle of odor spray to take care of it. There were small gnats in the room, which made me think there was uncovered food in the room before I checked in. The free breakfast room also had gnats (some on the food) so I only used it once. I have stayed at this hotel several times (maybe 4-5), and have noticed its quality is now awful. I won't ever stay there again.
The staff were super friendly!!!!
The staff was very friendly
The breakfast was way too basic, not diversified and not welcoming
This property is in a dilapidated state and unclean. There was hair on the pillows and a stain on the sheets. I paid for four nights, but was unable to make it through one. Do not waste your money on this motel.
