Nice Hotel close to UNCW, but.....

Pros: Hotel was clean and rooms comfortable.
We stayed over on April 18th, which happen to fall on Prom Night. Unfortunately, the front desk did not control the volume of kid coming in and out of the hotel. Cameras on the floors could have easily shown activity taking place. Across from our room we heard the kids running up and down the hall banging on doors yelling and screaming. This took place until the early morning. Outside this, the hotel was clean and rooms comfortable.
