3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I needed to be near Atlantic City, NC for business, and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Morehead City because of its convenient location and better price than on the beach in August. The staff was friendly, especially Jeanie. I prefer a firmer mattress, but the room was clean, the pool was nice, and the breakfast was good.

We were in Morehead City for a vacation and some scuba diving and couldn't have found a more convenient location for all the local things we wanted to do. This motel is near Beaufort and Atlantic and within minutes of the dive shop. We stayed 4 days with a good night's rest each night. The bed was comfy, breakfast good,... More

Room was large and clean and quiet! Beds and pillows were very comfortable - I normally don't sleep well - I was out like a light.

We spent two nights at this hotel for a weekend SCUBA diving trip. The hotel is clean and the desk staff was friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping options nearby.

We have a new tradition in our family, and it's a good one! We head down to the beach for a week at a great condo on the water, but because we want to milk as much as possible out of our beach getaway, we head down a night early to be able to fit in some shopping before we... More

This hotel is very nice, comfortable and good location unless you want to be right on the water. I was in town to visit friends and this made a good homefront for me. Very nice amenities for the price such as free in-room internet, free breakfeast, luxury brand soap/shower gel.
