“Great Hotel, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2011

The hotel was great. Room very clean, nice, new furnishings. They upgraded us to a riverfront room for free. Nice views from the balcony that has chairs & table to enjoy it. Great breakfast. Nice, plentiful evening snacks & drinks Monday-Thursday. Hotel is walking distance to everything in historic downtown New Bern. Can rent bikes at the BP gas station next door for $5/hour if you don't feel like walking. No noise from other visitors. Front desk helpful with suggestions for restaurants.

First time in the New Bern Area, the Comfort Suites is located on the waterfront, and what a view from my window. After a busy and hectic week it was a great escape while working. The hotel is within walking distance to great restaurants and the historic downtown area. I recommend this hotel and New Bern NC

The staff was awesome. The view from the hotel was picture perfect. Great location from which to explore New Bern's historic downtown. Within walking distance of Convention Center. I could not have asked for more.

The staff (Russell, Mr. Frank, Nelson...) always make me feel so welcome. Reg, the mgr. goes above and beyond to make sure guests are comfortable. The location: there is no better. The rooms: CLEAN and comfortable. I have traveled all over the world but I love coming home to the Comfort Suites in New Bern.

Do not visit New Bern, NC and especially DO NOT stay at the Comfort Suites, New Bern, NC - Front Street. Move on to Kinston or Washington or Wilmington. My truck was broken into at their parking lot! Hotel Manager/ Owner would not show up while I reported the break-in to the local police. City Police told me crime was bad in New Bern and said the hotel should have better lighting and cameras in the parking area (which the hotel owns) . Hell of a morning. No I'm sorry or what can we do to help. Just dumb look on their face! I asked for a refund and was told they did not FEEL it justified. Sorry, just got $1,100 stolen out of my truck! That's okay, just reported the hotel to the Choice Hotels International, BBB, and my credit card.

The Good:

Location is great. Within walking distance of the downtown area. Right next to the river where you can go for a little stroll.

Bed was comfy and the pillows were nice (they weren't the huge marshmallow ones some hotels use). Towels were soft too.

Microwave and fridge included in room.

Friendly staff.


The Bad:

A little pricy for what you get. Sure it includes the breakfast, but the breakfast was a bit below average compared to other continential breakfasts I've seen (chewy store bought bagels, canned fruit, frozen egg slices, etc.). Great if it was really "free" but the extra cost is included in the overall price.

Also, the breakfast area is a little small (maybe 7 small tables in total for a 4 story hotel). Some people had no room to sit.

The room itself was just OK. A chunk of wallpaper torn off in the bathroom, the shower curtain bar was loose, bath spout coming away from wall, a stain on the desk chair. Sure nothing horrible, but these little things can add up.


Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Not a bad place to spend a few nights. This one is good because of its location in downtown New Bern. You can walk to just about anywhere in town from here. We stayed over for New Year's. Watched the fireworks from a balcony room facing the Trent River/Neuse River--the in-laws had this room. We had a room on the 2nd floor facing downtown--nice 2 bed room. We had heard the place had undergone a renovation recently with new carpet, linens, bed coverings--it showed--very nice The room could use a bit of care to fix a few small things--wallpaper in bathroom, light cover in bathroom, but it was nothing big. Breakfast was good, and crowded. Wish the breakfast ran from 6-10 instead of 630-930. The best thing about this hotel is its location, location, location. We will definitely go back. BTW--great location base for 4th of July festivities too.
