First, let's talk good news. Never been to Wilmington, NC before and found it similar to Charleston but without the pretense. Less expensive, less touristy and more laid back. As to accommodations, we stayed at Front Street Retreat, location was great as it was right in the middle of everything. My disappointment was in basic amenities, no soap or shampoo...

Management response:

Hi Norma! Glad you enjoyed staying at the Front Street Retreat! As we mention on the site, guests bring their own toiletries as we found that most people bring their favorites and our samples went unused.

We stayed for 6 nights -- great location -- near excellent restaurants and a good Irish pub. Condo was very clean, well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. Couldn't have asked for any more. We lived in Wilmington for 20 years and know the area well -- so we got exactly what we were were looking for
