I came across this quaint inn back a few years ago when I was in town for a conference. I have stayed there now three separate times and I love love the place as it is very reasonable and has a European feel to it. It's my go to place when I'm in Wilmington. Mr. Michael is the BEST!!!!!

We had an overnight stay for my hubby's bday and it could not have been more perfect. From the moment you walk in to get your parking pass, you feel welcome.. like family. Mr. Michael is there to greet you and get you settled in. He is full of smiles, knowledge and warmth. I can tell you from first hand...

Great location downtown to walk to all there is to see. Mr. Michael was very nice. Included parking was a plus. Room 7 had a distinct musty odor that was being masked by a flowery room freshener which bothered us. We used the sofa bed for a third guest and unfortunately it creaked every time that person moved ( and...

Best Inn around! I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Wilmington and this was by far the best! The 2 story suites feel like little adorable apartments. The back deck over looking the river is a great place to have a cocktail before you go out or some snacks from your room. The place is also super clean, plus...

My husband and I came up to Wilmington for a few days. Mr. Michael the innkeeper was amazing! It was like a home away from home. The Inn was wonderful and clean. You can't beat the location. We spent one night on the back deck looking out onto the river. Don't expect a Bed and Breakfast, but do expect better...

I love history...so staying at Stemmerman's was a treat with the modern-style suites but at the same time keeping a lot of the building's history exposed. Mr Michael was super nice...he got us checked-in and gave us good tips and info on the inn and how everything works. From the Inn, you can easily walk to any place in downtown...

I travel...a lot. I was pleased as punch with Stemmerman's Inn and their wonderful Innkeeper: Mr. Michael. Typically I stay at the Hilton or Sheraton (insert corporate approved Hotel name here) but as I was asked to attend a conference late, there was no room at the "corporate Inn'. I thought I would take a look at the independent options...

My boyfriend and I were attending a wedding at 128 S. Front Street and thought this would be a very convenient place to stay since it was right next door. Not only was it convenient, it was also one of the best places I have ever stayed! Mr. Michael was so responsive from the initial booking through our entire stay....

“I don't completely recall if all rooms had this, but our suite had a skylight in the bedroom upstairs..which was beautiful at night to look at the stars but a bit bright in the morning. We didn't but you may want to ask if there is a way to close it to block some light out if you plan on sleeping in. But I must say, it did not take anything away from my stay. :)”
