Beach town welcomes visitors with new hotel rooms, camping cabins and RV-friendly sites

Carolina Beach, NC – Carolina Beach, NC, is excited to welcome the much anticipated Hampton Inn and Suites Carolina Beach Oceanfront hotel to its inventory of accommodations. Set to provide guests with a relaxing seaside retreat, the new 106-room hotel officially opened its doors just in time for Labor Day weekend.

The seven-story Hampton Inn and Suites hotel is situated in a prime location at the northern end of Carolina Beach with breathtaking oceanfront views. Complete with direct access to the beloved Carolina Beach Boardwalk and conveniently located minutes from downtown Wilmington, the hotel has 106 rooms and suites and approximately 400 square feet of meeting space.

“Carolina Beach has been anxiously awaiting a new full-service hotel that will satisfy the demand from visitors that continue to flock to the area,” said Kim Hufham, President/CEO of the Wilmington and Beaches Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The hotel’s central location offers guests easy access to multiple things to see and do in Carolina Beach from hopping on a paddleboat at Carolina Beach Lake Park to enjoying time on the beach, and of course, exploring the Boardwalk’s shops, restaurants and amusement rides during the summer months.”

Hotel amenities include a complimentary hot breakfast, poolside Tiki Bar, Hampton’s On the Run™ Breakfast Bag, 24-hour business center with free printing, fitness center, complimentary WiFi and oceanfront pool. In-room amenities include beachfront views, Hampton beds®, mini-refrigerators, sofa beds, 42-inch HDTVs, and private balconies available in select rooms.

For visitors looking to spend more time outdoors, Carolina Beach State Park is now home to four new camping cabins and nine RV-friendly sites. The upgrades will draw in campers of every variety, from RVers and outdoor enthusiasts to guests seeking a more comfortable camping experience at the 761-acre park.

The two-room log cabins, built by Lumina Builders of Wilmington, have double beds and bunk beds that can comfortably accommodate up to six campers. Each cabin has electrical receptacles and a heating and air-conditioning unit. Outside cabin amenities include a picnic table, charcoal grill and a fire ring. For those travelling via RV, the new RV-friendly campsites are fully equipped with utilities including water, electricity and sewer, along with a picnic table and grill/fire ring. Drinking water and restrooms with hot showers are located nearby both the cabins and RV sites.

“The new cabins and campsites offer the best of both worlds for our visitors – they will get some of the comforts of home while still being able to walk outside and explore the natural beauty of Carolina Beach State Park,” said Chris Helms, Superintendent of the park.

The Hampton Inn and Suites Carolina Beach Oceanfront is now open and currently accepting reservations.
