“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a lovely hotel right on the Neuse River with a city park next door. Friendly staff, clean rooms and great location. You can walk from here to virtually anywhere in the historic part of town, including Tryon Palace and the downtown shops and restaurants. Recommended!

Room Tip: Request a room with river view!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Our stay at the Comfort Suites in New Bern was great. The king room was spacious and had a fantastic river view. Waking up to an early morning sunrise is always great! It's an older hotel, but still kept up to high standards. I can't say enough about the hotel staff. They were absolutely pleasant and went out of their way to make sure our every need was taken care of. Breakfast is a bit average, but they have a nice social event around 5pm with food and various drinks. The hotel is located on the Neuse River waterfront and within walking distance to historic downtown, convention center, park and restaurants. We have stayed at almost all the hotels in New Bern, but...this one, by far, is our favorite!

Room Tip: Higher floors with balcony and waterfront views are great.

We stayed here for the 4th of July holiday; the rooms and pool were clean, and service staff was very friendly and helpful in pointing us in the direction of the fireworks. Would stay here again if we were in the area!

We have stayed in The Comfort Suites in New Bern many times. The staff is great and the rooms give you plenty of room to relax and enjoy your stay. The location is perfect. The river view is great, especially sun rise. The King size bed is just like being at home. We have never even considered staying any place else.

Due to our dissatisfaction with the Doubletree (old Hilton) in New Bern, we stayed here for our second overnight within a week (camp pickup). The location is lovely, the room perfectly satisfactory--included a fridge and a microwave.

Friendly welcoming staff. We were given an upgraded room with a view of the river for the same price as our original reservation. We had a large room with a separate seating area and the pillows were soft and fluffy. Comfortable bed and bedding also. The complimentary breakfast was the usual assortment of rolls, bagels, cereal, juices, etc. There were no hot items but there were hard boiled eggs for some protein. I can easily recommend the Comfort Suites in New Bern.

Nice gazeboie thing at the end of a dock out on the water with nice benches. Walking distiance to the quaint little downtown area. Safe and quiet both in the motel and the surrouding area. Our riverview room had a great view. Small but usable balconies. Room furnishings nice. Our dresser was starting to get just a bit old and dinged up. Bed comfortable with usual small Comfort Inn pillows. But plenty of them plus two extras in the drawers. Bathroom typical with walk-in shower instead of tub. Staff friendly and helpful. Comfy couch with hideaway bed. Desk and a couple chairs. Flat screen TV. Called a "suite" because of a half-wall sticking out in the middle of the room, but this is about as good as it gets for this chain. Breakfast basic but acceptable. If you want a sausage biscuit, you'll have to eat a couple of those mini-micro wave versions. But at least they have them! Nice evening reception with free Bud Light draft beer, an assortment of wines-in-a-box, and some very light snacks. Over-all, this is great place. Not a $200 a night motel, but just about the best I have seen form this chain.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms give you a great view!
