“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Came for one night as a little road trip getaway...we had room 201, best view in the whole place. It overlooks the water, very clean and well appointed suite/condo-tel. Loved it and would recommend it. Jackie at the front desk was great, although I could tell that just from talking with her earlier in the week when making reservations. Great place in a great little town...the only thing that would make it better would be a small swimming pool! :)

Multiple members of my family have stayed at this great little hotel over the years. The reason is a clean, comfortable room with everything we need to make our trips to Oriental a great experience. The location is perfect; walking distance to anywhere such as the town marina or local shops. Plus, the hotel owns a few beach cruiser type bicycles for its guests to use while staying there. The office staff always receives our reservations flawlessly, ensuring a smooth check-in. The rooms are always clean and quiet, and stocked with essentials. We have never had any type of problem but feel confident it would be quickly taken care of if we did. We often recommend the River Nuese Suites to friends and family. Great job, RNS staff!

This was our second visit to the hotel. The first visit, no problems. This time, a few. The hotel is in a great location, clean, on the river, walkable to everything in town, innkeeper lives on site. Downside of all this is that the hotel isn't a good place to stay if you are bothered by perfume smells or have asthma. As soon as you enter the rooms, there is a strong perfume smell that hits you. We discovered it was one of those plug in air fresheners. The smell was so strong you could taste it. Even the office had the smell, so it seems they may use this in all the rooms. We unplugged it immediately and out it outside the door as it was that strong even unplugged. The smell induced my asthma so I couldn't sleep that night, plus the air in the room just did not circulate. Even my husband was uncomfortable and hot all night. It was a rough night. We hope that since the freshener was unplugged, by the time we returned later in the day, the room would be bearable. We returned, there was no change in smell, we packed up and left as I couldn't breathe. Just a warning to people with breathing problems.

Perfect location for a waterfront destination wedding. The waterfront views are breathtaking and the location is awesome for a wedding and reception. Wedding party all stayed at hotel, which was great so you were not waiting or looking for wedding party members.A fun time was had by all. Rooms are beautiful, very comfortable, and quiet. Jackie & Larry, Innkeepers, are so sweet and assisted us to make sure everything was perfect for the wedding and guests. Hospitality suite is great to prepare for the events and is especially nice to accommodate out of town guest that need a place to "freshen up" before the event. Oriental is a hidden jewel and the people in the area are so friendly and make you feel a part of the community even though you are visiting. River Neuse made a young couples dream of a waterfront wedding a reality. Thank you Oriental for making our wedding so special. If you want to "get away" and "relax", this is the place to make your destination.

Room Tip: Second Floor rooms are a little larger and have a loft sleeping area. All rooms are beautiful.

We have spent the night at River Neuse Suites on several occasions. The waterfront view is outstanding. Some rooms are single level, others are on two levels. Both types include efficiency style kitchens. Furnishing and appliances are all new, as this place was just remodled a few years ago. Innkeeper Jackie lives onsite and is very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive.

The location is perfect for walking or bicycling around Oriental. Oriental itself is a quiet, charming coastal town. It is the perfect place to unwind -- don't go there for exciting nightlife.
