Stemmerman's Inn
Ranked #6 of 18 Wilmington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2015

My wife and I got married in Wilmington and had our reception next to the Stemmerman's at 128 South. We worked with our guests to book all six suites at the Stemmerman's and never regretted it for a second!

Regarding the rooms and service: Mr. Michael is the ideal host: Great!!! He met all the guests at the door and gave everyone a tour of the Inn and its facilities. He is a "one man show," as he said, so guests can't quite expect a 24/7 presence at the desk downstairs but he does his best! On that note, guests should keep their keys on them at all times, in case someone is not there to unlock the doors for you (thankfully we never had this problem). The rooms are clean and spacious. Many had the beds on a second level. Free coffee, too. Yum. Each room comes with a complimentary parking space which is across the street. Mr. Michael was very attentive. For example, when the clocks changed (we "fall" back one hour) he put a note on everyone's door reminding them of this. I think the only negative characteristic anyone mentioned was the spotty Wifi in some of the rooms.

Regarding the Inn in conjunction with a wedding: VERY recommended! Mr. Michael regularly works closely with the staff of 128 South. He was extraordinarily helpful in assisting me in loading and unloading the decorations we brought for the reception next door and even allowed us to store a bunch of them in the small Stemmerman's office. Finally, if you book the whole Inn there is a small discount for each room.

Thanks, Mr. Michael! Hopefully we can stay with you on a less crazy weekend!

Michael has service down to an art. He let us know when our room was ready and directed us personally how to get through the baracades for the Ironman competition. The room was clean, well equipped, and beautifully decorated. Even though athletes were running down the street into the night our room was quiet. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and soft bedding. Bottled water, orange juice and muffins were in the refrigerator. We were within easy walking distance of everything in the historic area.

Michael, now that we're back home in Ireland, we can reflect on our stay at Stemmerman's. Thank you for your service and hospitality, not to mention the advice on local restaurants, bars and places of interest. The loft accomodation provided plenty of space and all the mod cons.

Can NOT say enough about how wonderful this place is!!!! First and foremost, the innkeeper, Michael, is the BEST! The location is PERFECT! It is IMMACULATE! It is CHARMING! It is close to MANY fine restaurants! It is within walking distance of EVERYTHING in the historic district, including renovated homes, churches, museums, shops, trolley rides, carriage rides, etc. I can just can not say enough. Our first visit to Wilmington was perfect and when we return to this awesome city, we will NOT stay ANYWHERE ELSE!!!

My wife and I were planning a short trip to Wilmington NC. In searching for accommodations I decided I didn't want to stay in a regular hotel. While searching the internet I found Stemmerman's. The reviews were excellent so I decided to book them. The reviews were very accurate. Mr. Michael was a wonderful host. He met us on the sidewalk, checked us in and helped carry our luggage to our suite. It was a fantastic few days. When going back to Wilmington I will definitely be staying at Stemmerman's!!
