This hotel is clean, breakfast was good and what you would expect from a HI Express. People at desk where very friendly. We had large RV and were able to park right next door. We would stay here again.

I had the opportunity to stay here for a week on business. Very nice hotel. Rooms were kept very clean every day. The ladies who kept the rooms clean were great! The gentleman at the front desk was not only helpful, but also very polite, and the nicest person. Very professional. The lady though, not so much. Don't get the...

Truly enjoyed our stay here. Staff was attentive and responded positively to our requests. Would stay here again. It is convenient to the entire area, the rooms are well kept and it was quiet and peaceful. The hotel is non smoking, handicap accessible and close to several restaurants.

The property is in a good location and is clean. The breakfast was fine with lots of room for seating. The hotel is energy friendly - once you enter your room you will slide your room card in the slot to turn on the room's electricity. New Bern was a nice find.

I did not stay. I had previously booked for several days. I was there for my father's funeral. I needed to cut my visit short as the funeral was unexpectedly scheduled for later in the week than previously thought. Said I had to cancel my previous reservation and then rebook. But cancelling the previous reservation then meant they had no...

This property is in a great location, close to shopping, a short drive to downtown. There is a nice open staircase to the second floor and it is open and airy, which has a nice feel to it. Overall the staff is friendly and engaging, however the breakfast attendant on the Sunday we checked out was unfriendly to say the...

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...
