The said thing about Kinston is that there are only two real hotels in town. I stayed in the Holiday Inn for two nights. I had ants coming from everywhere on the night stand directly in front of my bed. The front desk sent up maintenance and he responded by removing the clock and spraying an insect repellent. The front... More

I have never experienced such friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Everyone we were in contact with was great. However, the building itself needs some repair and cosmetic work. Our exhaust fan in the bathroom did not work, the tile needed some repair. One of my coworkers said their shower curtain was falling down. I would stay there again if I was... More

On the way in, we noticed they did not have a ramp near the door so we had to hoist our luggage onto the sidewalk. We had a late, late check-in and that went smoothly. I was disappointed with the room partically with the bathroom- peeling wallpaper, a shoddy tile job (floor creaked and cracked everytime you walked on it),... More

We spent Saturday night at this hotel over the weekend. Outside of the hotel could use some sprucing up and cleaning around the planters and such. Check-in went smoothly, On the way to our room on the second floor, we noticed the ice machine was extremely loud, and was glad to see that our room was down the hall. The... More

I can't believe the positive reviews for this place. When I was checking in couldn't understand what the young men at the reception desk were saying because they barely spoke English. Then the WiFi in my room so weak I couldn't get a connection. There were bugs flying around in the room and the A/C didn't work very well. I've... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Kinston, the ideal hotel for business or leisure. Also welcome to historic Kinston, North Carolina home of the Kinston Indians Baseball team that plays at Grainger Stadium. We are located just off US 70 midway between Raleigh and the Carolina Coast. Originally established as a tobacco inspection center in 1759 along the banks of the Neuse River, the city was first known as Kingston (named for King George III of England). In 1784 following the revolutionary war the people of Kingston requested the letter G be dropped. In 1826 Kinston was incorporated. Come see the many historical sights Kinston has to offer such as the C.S.S. Neuse State Historic Site and the Caswell Center No.1 Fire Station Museum. If you are traveling here on business, there are plenty of companies in the area including Electrolulx, Smithfield Foods, and West Pharmaceuticals. While staying with us our rooms are equipped with a work desk and free high-speed Internet. We also offer spacious king suites which include whirlpool tubs. In the evening come down to the lobby and indulge yourself with some of our fresh baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies as well as fresh fruit. Our hotel will do its best to meet your every need to make your stay as perfect as possible. Visit Kinston and Stay Smart at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites. ... more   less
