We have stayed at lots of the Holiday Inn Express hotels over the past few years, and this one is quite good. Rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Good location for visiting the sights in New Bern.

We have stayed here for the past 4 years and have never been disappointed. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is a great plus; never have to worry about finding a good hot breakfast to start the day. Close to stores, food markets and restaurants.

The employees were extremely friendly. The rates were great. The Hotel was near new. Located in a quiet location with great parking. This hotel was fairly new and was one of the cleanest I have stayed in.

Had a few nights stay here and really enjoyed it. Great nights sleep and very quiet. Have to admit to being disappointed by the fact the swimming pool was closed, even though no mention was made on the hotels website. Breakfast is in a large bright room that is ideal for sitting and chatting. Only wished the breakfast waitress put... More

The most important thing to me about a hotel.....the bed, and this one is wonderful! The internet is slow though, but other than that....nice hotel. Hotel is clean which is always a plus. People are helpful too.

I will just mention a few of the things we liked and did not like. The breakfast and Lobby sitting area was the best we have seen in a long time. Lots of comfortable areas to sit including an area on the second floor. The treadmill in fitness center needs to be replaced. Very hard to use. Not enough outlets... More

This is a perfectly satisfactory hotel. I'm not sure how old the place is, but it feels very clean. Plus, I found the staff to be extremely friendly, cheerful, and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this place to others who are visiting New Bern.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean and convenient room and breakfast area. My room was very quiet and close to the elevator as requested. The bed and pillows were very comfortable also. Breakfast was great too!

We stopped here for a one-night stay during a trip towards the northern Outer Banks of NC. Initially I picked this place thinking it would be pretty basic, nothing special. But we were happy to find it more than met our expectations. The room was larger than a standard motel room, very clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The front desk staff... More
