Pretty standard place. Friendly reception, ok rooms and average breakfast. You might want to choose first floor as the lift to second floor is incredibly slow and second floor does not offer advantages.

The facilities were clean, and the staff were exceptionally prompt and friendly. The lobby was nice and inviting. Breakfast was decent. They did have eggs and pancakes on this trip, and they were OK. We would stay again.

Hotel and room was very clean. This was our first stay with any IHG hotel. The hotel was a little bit over-priced considering the terrible eggs at breakfast and the lack of pancakes or waffles. The breakfast area was clean and kept stocked while we were there. However, I believe they use powdered reconstituted egg powder. YUCK. If the eggs... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days, it was clean, very quiet and great staff. The bed was comfortable except for small pillows. I would recommend this Holliday Inn to any one looking for good value. Seems to be fairly new.

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past two weeks after medical procedures. The staff is most accommodating and the rooms are clean and priced fairly. I highly recommend if you are in New Bern. The location was perfect for us being very close to the medical offices on Glenburnie road.

We were in town for a family reunion and simply needed somewhere to crash. The room was of good size and the bed was really comfortable, but there was a musky smell like old cigarettes. The complementary breakfast was good enough for folks on the go. The small frig and microwave were a definite plus.

We choose Holiday Inn Express anytime we're looking for a comfortable, clean place to stay. This location met our expectations, but it the price of the room was a little high for the quality. The hotel was clean and nice, but as stated before, somewhat dated. We paid a little more for a suite (only thing available), but even normal... More

Booked 2 rooms with king sized beds. Arrived and given rooms with queen beds. When questioned I was told there were 42 guests that stayed over so all king sized beds were gone. Workers wore t-shirts, were disheveled and were unfriendly. AC on second floor sitting area screeched every time it came on. It took over 10 minutes to book... More

As mentioned earlier, the decro is a little dated. Two stories. Not much noise except crying baby one morning. The rooms are fair sized and clean. Friendly staff. The hot breakfast was good- eggs/ sausage one day, pancakes and omelet next, need more seating, but they do have trays for take away. Lots of restaurants and shopping near by. 10-15... More
