Welcome to the Front Street Inn

an Inclusive, Award-Winning Historic

Bed & Breakfast Inn and Boutique Hotel

Proud to be one of Our State magazine’s

“21 Perfect Places to Stay in North Carolina”

The Front Street Inn is an inclusive, award-winning boutique hotel and bed & breakfast inn offering peace and privacy in the heart of Wilmington’s historic downtown business and entertainment district.  Each of our guest rooms (for information on ADA accessibility click on our “policies” page) and suites are spacious, full of light, and decorated with beauty and comfort in mind.  And, with on-site parking, you‘ll park and walk to everything downtown has to offer:  we’re one block from the Riverwalk and a short stroll to exceptional casual and fine-dining, fun and relaxing pubs, entertaining night spots, unique shops, trendy galleries, museums, and historic sites.  We’re also conveniently located close to the Wilmington Convention Center, Coastline Conference and Event Center, Thalian Hall, and downtown’s newest gem, the Wilson Center, on the campus of Cape Fear Community College!

Unlike many downtown branded hotels, the independent Front Street Inn offers a complimentary breakfast buffet, complimentary on-site parking, and complimentary high-speed wireless Internet!  We’re exceptionally well equipped with everything the discerning leisure and business traveler is looking for.  There are many places to stay along the Cape Fear River and North Carolina Coast, none as wonderful as the Front Street Inn!

Here’s What They Say About Us…


“Once a building dedicated to acts of charity, Wilmington’s riverfront time capsule is now a headquarters for hospitality.”

Our State Magazine (“21 Perfect Places to Stay” issue)


“For distinctive lodging downtown, we love the Front Street Inn.”

Southern Living


“The Front Street Inn features understated decor with arched windows, thick brick walls, 14 foot ceilings and Maple floors. American art gathered from galleries, fairs, auctions and attics peppers the Inn, giving it a bohemian flavor.”
