Very nice...Rooms were nicely decorated, staff very helpful and was in a good location. All in all very pleased. They are doing alot to update all of the Holiday Inn Express hotels and for the price it's a great performer.

Overall stay wasn't bad, typical hotel stay. Room felt sticky & humid no matter how cold AC was set on, which its the beach I get it. The Fitness room is what really made me question the hotel. First off, it smelled like the boys high school locker room. The odor was enough to make you take a step back.... More

Made a last minute reservation and was quite pleased. The room was large and had an electric fireplace. Even though I visited in June it was still a pleasure to sleep with the fireplace running. Clean room and the complimentary breakfast was awesome! The pool was closed due to an issue beyond their control, but I was content in the... More

We stayed here for one night before catching the early ferry from Cedar Island to Ocracoke. It met our needs admirably: it might not be quite so suitable for a longer holiday visit to Morehead City. The Inn is most convenient for the highway, shops and restaurants, as well as being well appointed and well maintained. Our room was of... More

We made a last minute decision to visit someone staying on Emerald Isle. Our stay was only for one night, but the impression made will definitely be longer. Since we have a dog, it does limit our choices for accommodations. In this case though, I would stay here even if we didn't have the dog. The entire staff was so... More
