we stayed here b/c it was pet friendly & no place on wrightsville was pet friendly. i was a little dubious of this place based on reviews. however, it was quite satisfactory; not fantastic due to bug egg casings in cobwebs in 2 ceiling corners of room & hot/cold water faucets in sink were reversed. :-) shower faucets ok. new...

Stayed the weekend at the Waterway Lodge. It's an older building, but the room was great. It even had a small kitchen! The staff was very helpful and assisted me with a late check-in. Walked up the street for dinner and down to the beach on saturday. The walk might seem a little far- but it went fast and there...

Chose this hotel for the location near a boat ramp. Arrived late and manager arranged a room key in a lock box. Room was large and clean, but mattress was just okay. But it was a good price considering the near-waterfront location.

Absolutely TERRIBLE!!! Went to check in and they made a "mistake" on our reservation and didn't have us in the system. We were traveling with our dog so we didn't really have many options(we arrived after driving 3 hrs)...They were able to give us a room..WITH NO AIR CONDITIONING(it was 90degrees out), the rooms refridgerator was off and the door...

The place was dirty and the items in the room were barely functional. There was no housekeeping service to be found and when I asked the man at the front desk he was just rude and not helpful at all

This hotel is at a great location. Across the street is the Intracoastal Waterway which has some of the finest restaurants at Wrightsville Beach. Clean and unique rooms.

My husband and I and our small dog stayed here one night on our way to Florida. But it would be just fine for a week. The large room had a fridge and microwave, and lots of cupboards. There was a full bath with a tub, but our shower didn't function. The shower head was there but the diverter knob...

Nothing fancy, but the location was great - close to the beaches. The bonus for us was that pets were allowed. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable - nothing fancy, but who needs that at the beach. Must ask for hairdryer and iron (no ironing boards?) Also TV clickers were missing.

Where to begin. I know people travel with their dogs, but when they bark all night, and when I call the desk all I get is a "Sorry, but there is nothing we can do" makes me very upset. Then when it does get quiet, someone decides to knock on our door saying that there is a complaint about noise....

“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.”
