“Good value in New Bern”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I stayed at this property during a previous job when it was much newer back around 1998-2001 and I have stayed here a few times in the past year or so in my new position. The hotel is starting to show some age with dated decor & furnishings and the treadmill in the fitness center is very outdated and did not work on this trip. My king bed was a little saggy on the edges but since I was alone I was able to move to the middle which compensated for it. I would probably rate this property a 3.5 if I had that option but since it isn't I gave it a 4. It is still a good value in the New Bern area if you are just looking for basic clean accomodations. The breakfast area is large and well-stocked and the rooms do have a very large flatscreen TV and plenty of electrical outlets which is a pet-peeve of mine especially in newer hotels. I have also stayed at the Candlewood Suites next store about a year ago which had just opened but it has been booked solid ever since then. I'm assuming with long-term guests which is who Candlewood is aimed at.

Nice place with solid customer service. Friendly checkin, very nice room, clean and decent.
The hotel is older looking from the outside but for the price and overall upkeep it did not matter at all. You will do well entertaining this hotel as one of your choices when booking in New Bern.

I have stayed at some of the competitors previously when not on business so you do have other choices of great quality but solid thumbs up for this one!! Great job guys

we came over from UK to meet a friend I had made on the Internet and we had a wonderful 10 days holiday. The Hotel, which I picked off the Internet, was an amazing surprise. The rooms were excellent quality and the staff could not have been more obliging ( special mention to Ron on Reception!). The breakfast had a cooked option and had a varied selection with hot drinks available throughout the day, hot chocolate @ bedtime, yummy. I hope to return to New Bern & rest assured , this will be my first stop!

Great place to stay without remortgaging your home. One of the best mid price places to stay in New Bern and only about 45 minutes to Atlantic Beach and Morehead City. They also offer a free hot breakfast instead of just a Continental one. Rooms are superb.

I throughly enjoyed my overnight stay at this Holiday Inn Express. Very thing was superb.
The front desk lady was super. My room was clean, the bed very comfortable, and the room had nice furnishings, including microwave and refrigerator, with freezer.
The bathroom was super clean with large, bright lighting (nice touch). The large, flat screen TV with full cable including TCM was great. And, one of the best breakfast bars in the HE chain. So many choices, especially for a Sunday morning. The lady handling the bar was outstanding, and so very nice. The sausage gravy was the best I have ever had at a HE hotel ( I know why, she adds extra sausage to the gravy). It is the little touches that make this hotel a super value.
I can hardly wait to book this hotel again soon. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

We arrived late on a Friday evening with my niece. My husband and I were driving her to meet up with a friend. Reception greeted us and knew immediately who we were since my sister had just called to make sure our rooms were still available since we were running late by about 4hours. Rooms were beautiful and the staff were unbelievably friendly. Would definitely stay again. Very clean.
