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...

We are from Iowa. We wanted to see the beach before going on to our son's home in S.C. We decided to go to Wrightsville Beach. What a great choice we made. We took the first hotel we saw which was the Waterway Lodge. Again a very great choice. Their staff helped us so much with directions and places to...

Stayed at Water way lodge last month, a really relaxing experience. My first trip to Wrightsville Beach, NC. I was looking for lodging that was dog friendly (for me and my trusty Chihuahua, Caesar). The room was clean and fresh, had a great shower. Easy access to I-40 to and from Raleigh. Staff was great, helpful and very friendly. I've...

Just stayed at Waterway Lodge this week. Never been to Wrightsville Beach before and I am so glad we didn't pay attention to the negative reviews. Bright, fresh-smelling, clean rooms. Remodeled kitchenette with small fridge,excellent A/C, lighting and seaside decor. I don't have a pet but I wanted a central, economical location so I was pleasantly surprised with the clean,...

We were on our way to Charleston and stopped here at night when we were tired. Got a beautiful room on the ground floor which was away from the rest of the rooms. Had our own little parking space and patio with chairs. The room was nicely decorated with a beach theme and had a mini kitchenette. Walked a little...

“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.”
