We stopped here during Project Fear Is Horseplay, and was blown away by the service, rooms, and breakfast. Literally no complaints about this hotel at all. The house keepers were friendly, just as the front desk lady was (shout out to the blonde British woman!). Rooms were clean, and breakfast was delicious. Offering more than just toast and fruit they... More

Stayed her 2 nights. Nice and clean. Good breakfast. Lobby was 2 story and pretty. Beds were nice, she's were soft. Good location. We were within 10 minutes of all 3 parks we played at. Across the street from the mall, and about 10 minutes from the interesting downtown and waterfront.

This was a 50/50 proposition. I loved the lobby and the décor and color coordination was bright and bold. The room was comfy...except the chair and ottoman looked like someone had a drooling party on it...that was groooossss. I was too exhausted to change rooms or debate, so I covered up the unsightly mess with a towel and kept it... More

Hotel location is centrally locatedd - convenient to both downtown New Bern and MCAS Cherry Point. We found the hotel staff to be both friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, and our bed was comfortable. Complementary breakfast items were fresh and tasty.

I always stay at this HIE in New Bern when in the area to visit family. Staff is wonderful and friendly - from the front desk to housekeeping. The rooms I have stayed in have been roomy and very clean - including the bathroom (I am pretty fussy!) Beds are super comfy with pillow choices of soft or firm. WIFI... More

I have been here before and found it a good place to stay. This stay was no exception. Check in was fast and the paperwork was ready. Staff was friendly. Did not eat breakfast this trip. Room was good. The only problem was the rug was dirty enough that you left footprints when you got in the shower. The pool... More

We had to stop short of our destination and pulled in around 10 at night without a reservation. The staff was helpful, accommodating, informative, engaging and very friendly. We were given the type of room we wanted, best location for our parking needs, reasonably priced, and clean. We had a great breakfast, again impressed with the staff, and were very... More

Our goal was to visit historic New Bern and this hotel is in a very good location for that. Just a couple miles down the road and we were in the old town. After a lovely walk around New Bern and dinner we returned to our pleasant clean room at the Holiday Inn Express. WiFi worked well. Breakfast was very... More

Stayed at this hotel recently while on business in the area. Hotel was nice and clean but not anything special and it is located more on the outskirts of town near the highway. We have stayed at nicer HIE's before.
