Great getaway ...

Reviewed 23 april, 2022

Really enjoyed a 3-day getaway at this hotel. I have been coming to Wrightsville since the 70's but this was my first time at BR. First.... yes the hotel is an old box. It has been here for a long time. However, my room on the top floor looked recently renovated and was great for my needs. It was big, well-furnished, clean and everything worked. The bathroom in particular was particularly well-designed and functional. Contrary to another review I read, the "Juliet" balcony design worked great for me. Again, contrary to a couple reviews I have read, I did not come across any employees that were rude or dismissive in any way. All that I engaged with were friendly and responsive, particularly the front desk staff, the pool bar staff, and all of the bell and valet parking staff. To me it was obvious that the hotel was hiring the right folks, and giving them service training. Nothing is perfect. Yes the elevators are old ...but worked fine. Yes, parking is $10 ....Every parking space on Wrightsville is a paid spot .. Maybe the decor in the lobby is a little outdated for 2022. And finally it is expensive. The room was expensive, the food was expensive and the drinks were expensive. But find me an oceanfront hotel in a resort area anywhere today that is of any quality that is not expensive. Set your expectations correctly, ask for a renovated room on the top floor, and have a good experience. I will certainly go back.

No changing tables available in lobby bathroom

Reviewed 17 april, 2022

Pretty disappointing being a young family with kids. The few times I’ve tried to go out and then ending up at a place with no changing table in the lobby bathroom for my baby is pretty embarrassing. I almost changed her on the bathroom counter but asked a manager to make sure I wasn’t crazy. They did end up bringing me into their fitness center but how sad changing my baby on a treadmill.

Wretched and rude desk staff

Reviewed 10 april, 2022

Desk staff rude. In contrast, valet, housekeeping, and pool staff were worthy of a five star resort. Dried paint on a too-short shower curtain. Only one blanket in room and it was dirty. Asked for checkout an hour late and was told that wasn’t possible but I could stay another hour for another $50. I get that housekeeping is busy but I doubt that extra fifty was heading their way. I’ve been coming here since the 70s and still come several times a year-this was a huge disappointment.

Boutique or Makeup on a Corpse

Reviewed 16 march, 2022

This hotel is like putting makeup on a corpse and calling it pretty!!! The lobby has large boho chairs to take Instagram photos in and a pretty lawn but the boutique and resort features stop right there!!! They charge but they do not provide or deliver on their marketing. I have never stayed at a place before until now that I wanted to end our vacation early and go home. Pros: lawn is pretty (despite the fact chairs held puddles of water and you couldn’t use them) Cons: -no upper locks on hotel room doors. Unsafe for families with young children children -no balcony, just old railing out side a sliding window (looked extremely cheap and outdated) -the antiquated elevators loudly slam shut and you can hear it several times a night when trying to sleep -extremely noisy doors from the multiple coats of paint, no one can come in and out of the bathroom or main door without waking everyone up. -no fan in bathroom!!! (Apparently instead of fixing and maintaining things they just slap on more coats of paint. -only a glued in panel of glass covering the shower with half of it completely open causing water to go all over the floor unless you lay a towel down to catch it -terrible beds, springs jab you in the back and sides. And you can not turn or move without the whole mattress moving with you! (Super cheap and none of us were able to sleep on them) -itchy pilling sheets -loud ac which you cannot control from your room and sounds like an airplane taking off every time it turned on during the night -$10 a day to park your car in an open parking lot (wasn’t told about this but was charged on our invoice) -literal trash in pool as well as part of a trash bag floating in it -pool was a milky white color -food mediocre and expensive with no kids menu for breakfast, cost $75 for 3 coffees and three meals (the biscuits and gravy was disgusting and made my husband sick) -no food available after 9 -bar not open till 4 -no outdoor bar on the weekdays -outdoor garden furniture soaking west -they also advertise beach chairs on their site under amenities but if you sit in a beach chair at the pool or on the beach they do not hesitate to come up and embarrass you in front of other guest telling you you have to pay to use them! And if you want an umbrella that’s extra to (Pay to sit in furniture at a hotel you are paying to stay at!) we left our beach chairs at home because they were listed as an amenity on their website. -apparently you have to also pay to use the hot tub as well ($40 an hour!) and it’s old and gross and full of foam with green stuff growing on it -bugs in cups in room, found them trying to make coffee in the room -outlets pushing out of the walls and looked dangerous to use -ice bucket in rooms but no ice machines (you have to take your bucket to the restaurant so they can fill it from the kitchen) -when checking in we were told we are only allowed to have one door key to share between 4 people because they had a supply issue and couldn’t afford to give out more than one!!!? (I’m sorry what, where does all the money they take from guest go? Certainly not to sleep-able mattresses or functional rooms). -we were also told we had to wear arm bands while on the property but were only given 2 for 4 people even though the reservation was for 4 people. -sound side/harbor views are actually a view of the parking lot. But if you look across the parking lot and the road you see the sound on the other side. -we literally felt unwelcome as paying guest at a nasty hotel! These rooms were severally outdated rooms, dirty facilities, poor guest services, and overrated and overpriced Mediocre food that looked pretty but tasted bland. We will not ever be staying here again and will recommend that others do not either. We come to the Wilmington area a few times a year and have never had such a bad experience at a hotel. Apparently all the good reviews are for there restaurants not guest actually staying here. This hotel thinks charging top dollar for everything makes it nice but they take no pride in making this hotel worth it. It seems like you are paying for a pretty lawn and that’s it. Do yourself and your family a favor and avoid this place. It’s a joke!

Very Nice Hotel

Reviewed 13 march, 2022

We went for a long weekend and reserved a Premier Atlantic Oceanfront Stateroom so we would have a balcony and be able to reserve a corner room on the top floor. The room was huge and had a separate room with a tub. The only downside to this is that the TV is so far from the bed we had to turn it up louder than I would have liked. It's a beautiful property and the staff were very friendly. I'm giving 3 stars for sleep quality as we could hear the TV in the room next to us at night.
