HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I stayed at this hotel on business for a week. The rooms were great, clean, and the staff was very friendly. As you can tell from my reviews, I have been around. One thing that stood out was the integrity of the staff. I left items behind in the room and so did another member of the team I was...

We wanted a hotel close to a wedding venue and this was it. It had a nice lobby, indoor pool and a hot breakfast I could eat, low carb, including 'bold' coffee. The room was an okay size, clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but clean. Everything was clean and updated. Nice landscaping too....

The room was clean and well equipped. The restaurants nearby are decent and family friendly and a nice indoor pool area as well. The only negative was it was a bit difficult to navigate the surrounding roads due to extensive road work.

I had an incredible time staying in what looks on the outside to be a nice hotel, but what seems on the inside to be a resort! I stayed in the balcony suite with vaulted ceigs, an office, a jacuzzi in the room over looking a large heated pool and it was just delightful.

My wife and I went to this Best Western for a weekend getaway because of its close proximity to Carolina Beach and the fact that there are a lot of places to dine out and shop in the area. Also we like the indoor pool and hot tub. But after our experience the weekend of 02/25 we will no longer...

I am sorry you were so displeased with your recent stay. To clarify, you were never charged $657.14. Your charge was increased from $278.57 to $378.57, with the $100 incidental charge resulting from a missing blanket and scarf. After you called the hotel the following morning, that $100 incidental charge was refunded. As for the bed bugs, you made no...

I found roaches in my room on two separate occasions. Also dried urine around the base of the toilet - not good. Room smelled of mildew. Staff seemed to be used to someone reporting bugs as didn't apologize only wrote down room number. It is a shame because otherwise, this was a decent hotel in convenient location.

I am sorry to hear you encountered insects in your room. We have pest control treat the hotel every other week, but sometimes, those things can happen regardless. I hope the apology and discount we offered you at checkout will give you reason to give us another chance the next time you are in the area.

This is a small Best Western and is located about 5 miles from Carolina Beach. Location is convenient to shopping, the beach (of course)and restaurants. The only tricky thing is the hotel is located on a "feeder" that runs parallel to Carolina Beach Rd so if you leave the hotel towards the beach, you turn right at the traffic signal...
