The Wrightsville Beach hotels provide travelers with some enticing lodging options along the North Carolina coast. All of them can be found on or near a beach, and also within easy reach is the city of Wilmington and everything that it has to offer. The peak summer beach season is when these hotels are in greatest demand, so summer guests are encouraged to book as early as possible once they find their accommodations of choice.
Among the best Wrightsville Beach hotels are two resorts that occupy excellent beachfront locations. These resorts are the Holiday Inn Wrightsville Beach Resort (pictured) and the Blockade Runner Beach Resort. The Holiday Inn Wrightsville Beach Resort boasts an inviting outdoor swimming pool and a heated indoor pool. Hot tubs, a kids club, a gift shop, two restaurants, a lounge, a guest activities center, a fitness center, a business center, and both conference and banquet rooms figure among the other available facilities. Complementing these facilities are a variety of free services, and guests enjoy access to a variety of welcoming amenities in the 184 guestrooms. At the more upscale Blockade Runner Beach Resort, the ample facilities include an award-winning restaurant, a casual lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a private boat dock, and an attractive oceanfront pool. Tasteful rooms and suites figure among the Blockade Runner Beach Resort accommodations, as does a very spacious home rental that is known as "The Cottage."
Another resort that counts itself among the Wrightsville Beach hotels is the Shell Island Resort. Much like the Holiday Inn and the Blockade Runner, this resort enjoys a fantastic beachfront location and offers a variety of welcoming facilities. Also worth noting are its guest units. They come in the form of spacious suites that feature kitchenettes and a variety of other wonderful amenities. As for the other Wrightsville Beach hotels, they include several motel-style properties that cater more to the budget-minded travelers. Examples in this department include the Silver Gull Motel, the Surf Motel Suites, the Waterway Lodge, and the Sandpeddler Motel & Suites. For those Wrightsville Beach visitors who prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, both condo and home rentals are available.
