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 The hotel is starting to show some age with dated decor & furnishings and the treadmill in the fitness center is very outdated and did not work on this trip.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.
