We stayed at the Waterway Lodge April 6th weekend of 2013 and loved it. We had checked online for other hotels and this one had the best rates. We had stayed there two summers ago and love the proximity to some of our favorite restaurants. The room is the perfect size for a couple. It is all you need for...

I cannot believe they're asking $600 a week or $1,000 a month for this old, run down place in need of renovations! I don't know what room the picture show's but it's not the one we stayed in. When you make reservations they glorify the place. Pool adjecent to busy roadway. Very noisy. Inadequate service, the kids at the front...

We had previously stayed at this Lodge in a room and we truly loved it. We booked a one bedroom condo for our recent stay Thanksgiving week-end. The price was high but we were in town for a family reunion and we expected the rates to be higher on a holiday. The condo was a major disappointment. It was dirty,...

Waterway Lodge has been my secret haven in Wrightsville for years . It is convenient to everything and a GREAT deal ratewise. Views of the sound and ocean are nice and easy walking distance to the best restaurants! The units are privately owned and all of them I have seen are neat tidy and well furnished including living rooms and...

For the first time I found a hotel in the Wrightsville Beach area that is reasonably priced and meets all my needs! We stayed in room 402 and it was everything we could have wanted and more. The unit was quite, clean, and had an excellent view. Next time we take a trip to wrightsville there is no question where...

Once again, had a wonderful vacation in Wilmington and staying at the Waterway Lodge! We have stayed here numerous times and always request either room 222, if we have our pets with us, or room 227. They both have amazing commodities and are very modern. Waterway Lodge is so convienent to the beach, intercoastal waterway, and amazing restaurants. The staff...

First off, this place is pet friendly in every sense. That's really hard to find in beach communities. Both times we've taken rooms here have been outstanding. Convenience to both the beach and Wilmington are exceptional, and the staff was exceptional. We use the condos because we don't eat out as much in the summertime -- we take our dog...

My family and I stayed at Waterway Lodge this past July. It was a great room, great hotel and great location. It is only 2 miles from the beach and abut 6 miles from downtown Wilmington. The room was very clean, modern and perfect for our family. We have three small children and it fit us perfectly, not cramped at...

“Request one on first floor so you can park and walk in. A little noisey from the road to Wrightsville Beach, but the A/C drowns out most of the noise. We were so tired it didn't matter.”
