Clean motel and friendly staff. We were on a birding trip through this area and selected the Holiday Inn Express based based on my previous experience with Holiday Inn Express motels. Bright clean lobby, clean rooms and a fairly decent breakfast (eggs, bacon, biscuits, etc.). Beds were comfortable, linen was clean and the overall facility was well maintained. This motel... More

Typical Holiday Inn Express. Upgraded to a king suite which we appreciated. Staff at front desk very nice and helpful. Would have liked to stay using my IHG points but for some inexplicable reason, they require 25,000 points for a stay. Havelock, which is 15 miles away requires 10,000. Go figure.... Breakfast usual HIE fare, which is to say, not... More

Dear RabidSpartanFan, Thank you so much for staying with us and writing a review about your stay! We are pleased to hear that the staff was very nice and helpful. IHG sets our points price and I think it has something to do with the fact that we are considered a beach community, even though we are not on the... More

The room was great, the staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a filling breakfast in the morning. Although we paid a little more, it was a step-up from budget hotels we had been staying in, and was well worth the money.

If you are looking to play around the city, and not be on the beach, this is a decent place to go. They have a pretty intensive continental breakfast, so enjoy that if you stay here. I got stuck with a handicap room, which isn't terrible...just a huge bathroom. I wonder if it's because I booked through hotwire...as my friend... More

Came to NC for a wedding, rooms and beds were very good, the staff was very helpful finding good places to eat. The recommendations were excellent, the breakfast bar was very good. The pool was clean and wonderful after a day on the beach.

I write reviews on many places. I prefer Holiday Inns as they are genuinely similar in quality and cleanliness. This hotel is the exception. The check in person at the desk was not very friendly. We had 4 people in four rooms and the person didn't care if we had a hundred. My room had an air conditioner that leaked... More

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.
