Wilmington, United States
Reviewed 15 June 2016

This is the first Hampton Inn that I have ever been disappointed in. While we were aware of the high rate for the room, we were later told it was because of a graduation. The "free" breakfast was uneatable. There were no brochures in the lobby for points of interest. I feel uneasy making negative comments, but I also felt...

My wife and I made our first stay at this location using Hilton Honors Rewards points. Using the self check-in feature of the Hilton Honors app, I was able to select a very large and well-furnished corner room on the top floor. Everything about the property was excellent: facilities, staff, breakfast area and items, coffee bar in lobby, etc. We...

The staff is very accomodating and friendly. They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. The beds are very comfortable and sleep wonderfully. My husband and I both slept through the night with no tossing or turning. Better than I sleep at home. Breakfast is always a nice touch. Would love to see a little more variety; but...

Hotel was conveniently located for travel around area and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. All staff were friendly and courteous, and helpful when I asked questions about the area. Will definitely use this Hampton when in the area again.

Not the fanciest of hotels, but when you're looking for a clean comfortable place to stay in Wilmington, Hampton Inn University area never disappoints. Rooms are freshly appointed. Bathrooms are large and clean. Staff remains largely out of sight, but clearly they're on task because everything is always in place and stocked appropriately. Only 5 minute ride to beachfront Wrightsville...
