“Like new!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

Upon reaching this hotel I had some doubts. But to be very honest I was somewhat surprised and it was a good surprise. This hotel is like new. The front desk service gets an A+ from me. My room was rather large as well as my bathroom. They had a nice indoor pool with a jacuzzi. I rates cleanliness poor due to a situation with my room which management already knows of. The hotel is located walking distance to many places to eat at. I will for sure stay again of I am ever in the area.

As a few other reviews mentioned, this hotel is not "riverside" - New Bern is riverside, but this hotel is not. It sits back off a stretch of route 70 in an unassuming spot. There is no view, period- unless you like to look at townies cruising mcdonalds at 2am.
However- there are some pluses to this hotel. First, it is immaculately clean. The room was spotless and hypoallergenic. That is more than I can say for the Croatan National Forest, which was on fire during my visit, and dropping bits of white ash on my car and filling the lungs of Eastern NC with smoke. That's what they apparently call a controlled burn.
Anyway, the hotel was clean and quiet and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bottle of water in your room is complimentary, rather than predatory. There is a continental breakfast but I have a thing for Waffle House, which is right there along with a Ruby Tuesday and the afore mentioned mcdonalds. The beds were comfy- they informed me that they charge more for king beds than for a double room, so if you book through a travel site and don't specify, you'll end up with queen beds instead of a king and they won't really help you over the phone. The prices are extremely good, particularly for the boutique style newish hotel (just a couple years old). I ended up with this gem using priceline and was surprised at the lack of a river, but happy with the price.
I would stay in this hotel again if I needed a clean, friendly dependable place to sleep. I think it would be nice in the winter because of its indoor pool. So that's it.

Stayed here on business after conference hotels in town were booked. Very surprised generally how nice the place looked for a Best Western, I guess that why is called a Plus. Rooms were nice, modern, and confortable. Breakfast was ok, and rate was very good for what you get. Free Wifi was nice too. Hotel has only one elevator which was actually difficult to find when first checking in.

Room Tip: Stayed on the back side "odd number room" away from road.

What a surprise to find out that the Riverside Inn is not on the river, or within vision of any water. When I asked about it, the staff explained that the city is between two rivers so the whole town is 'riverside'. She went on to say that I was not the only one who had been confused by name. However, if you don't mind the lack of view, it is one of the nicest rooms I've stayed in including ones at twice the cost. The rooms are stylish and the linens are upscale. I definitely would book this hotel again.

I stayed here in Nov and again in Dec, with another visit coming in late Jan. The desk staff was courteous, both times I was able to check in early because I'd arrived earlier than expected. They had the best price for the area, the room was clean, wi-fi was fast, there was a good selection of channels on TV, and the breakfast had a decent number of choices. The location wasn't bad nor hard to get to - walking distance to McDonalds, Ruby Tuesday, and a convenience store. A short drive to downtown New Bern, with quick and easy access to the interstate. An excellent value for the price.

Room Tip: Upper floors a bit quieter.

I can no longer rely on reviews when i make my decision to stay places now. Only because the ones on this site have to be false or fake people making them. I in no way enjoyed my stay at this place. I got tired of hearing the kids complain about how tired the were so we decided to catch a good nights sleep and stay at a best western. WRONG, i could hear each and ever single footstep on the floor below me, beside me, and can clearly hear the conversations of people in neighboring rooms. Desk lady working at the time was very rude and when we asked for any kind of assistance we were greeted by hostility and resentment. So thank you for making sure we never again stay in new bern nc.

Room Tip: Keep driving to next town

I stayed at this Best Western for 3 nights during the Christmas holidays and it is VERY clean, but also attractive in it's modern decor! The value for money was almost too good to be true! We swithered about staying here or staying downtown. The location was so convenient to downtown and the price so much better here that we were very pleased we chose to stay here in the end. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and our room had a fridge and microwave. The wireless service is excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is not downtown, but it is walking distance to a Ruby Tuesdays and a local Seafood restaurant and numerous fast food choices. Breakfast at the hotel is good, but nothing special....the standard included fare, heavy on unremarkable carbs with a few other items included. The coffee was much better than average though, All in all a great stay.
