The hotel exterior, lobby and staff were wonderful. It was a very peaceful stay and housekeeping did an amazing job. The only downside to this hotel is that it is time to get new mattresses they have ran their course and fought a good fight.

We spent a Saturday night here. Staff is friendly and check in and out was quick and easy. Room was pretty good, bed was a little softer that wife would like. Breakfast is the usual at Holiday Inn. We were disappointed that there was no orange juice, milk or even water at the time we went down for breakfast. Would... More

I've stayed here several times over the past few years. This is a good place to sleep for a night or two. The beds are not the best but the rooms are always very clean and very nice. The wifi is always spotty and in some parts of the hotel impossible to keep a good connection. This makes it tough... More

We stayed here for a night while visiting some family in New Bern. We loved it! The staff were very friendly & accommodating. They allowed us to check in early (which was great, because we had to check out of our hotel in Atlantic Beach at 11 & had nowhere to go) & provided a crib for our two yr... More

This is a nice hotel that is very clean. The bed was very comfortable.Just a few minutes from downtown New Bern. We wanted to visit the "Birth Place of Pepsi" town. A short drive to town and plenty of free parking in town. Breakfast was very good-delicious sausage & biscuits, bacon, sausage and of course, my husbands favorite, cinnamon rolls.... More

Was disappointed in this hotel, it looks like an old hotel was renovated and they added the newer front to it to look like a Holiday INN Express, Very dark, needs more updating, staff was ok, but just not what I expected from a Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast was good, location was a little out of the way but ok.... More

Staff was kind and receptive to special requests for a parent with a small child. I've been to many Holiday Inn Express hotels, and this one had exceptionally good breakfast - well-stocked and clean with an attentive, friendly staff person assigned. I do wish the pool was in a more visible place, as it's kind of tucked around back, and... More

While the property itself is nice the management and staff leave a lot to be desired. Upon arrival the first thing I saw was "touch curb, penalty applies", next is restrooms for paying guests only then internet for paying guests only. This did not give off a welcome feeling at all.
