Had a few nights stay here and really enjoyed it. Great nights sleep and very quiet. Have to admit to being disappointed by the fact the swimming pool was closed, even though no mention was made on the hotels website. Breakfast is in a large bright room that is ideal for sitting and chatting. Only wished the breakfast waitress put...

The most important thing to me about a hotel.....the bed, and this one is wonderful! The internet is slow though, but other than that....nice hotel. Hotel is clean which is always a plus. People are helpful too.

I will just mention a few of the things we liked and did not like. The breakfast and Lobby sitting area was the best we have seen in a long time. Lots of comfortable areas to sit including an area on the second floor. The treadmill in fitness center needs to be replaced. Very hard to use. Not enough outlets...

A very enjoyable couple of nights, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms spacious and beds comfortable. Got a 10% discount voucher from reception for lunch/dinner at Captain Ratty's in downtown New Bern. Went and enjoyed great dinner of fish and chips, best this side of the pond we have ever had, and we come from the other side of the...

This is a perfectly satisfactory hotel. I'm not sure how old the place is, but it feels very clean. Plus, I found the staff to be extremely friendly, cheerful, and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this place to others who are visiting New Bern.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean and convenient room and breakfast area. My room was very quiet and close to the elevator as requested. The bed and pillows were very comfortable also. Breakfast was great too!

We stopped here for a one-night stay during a trip towards the northern Outer Banks of NC. Initially I picked this place thinking it would be pretty basic, nothing special. But we were happy to find it more than met our expectations. The room was larger than a standard motel room, very clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The front desk staff...

We stayed here for a weekend and were very happy with it. Room was clean and featured a flat screen television. Rate on web site was $111 per night all in but got it on Hotwire for $87. Good location and you can't beat the hot breakfast and coffee in the morning.

The hotel desk clerk named Sharyn did not greet us with a smile. I do not think that she smiled during my entire interaction with her. I checked-in during the late afternoon time, so maybe she just didn't want to be there. The rooms were clean and tidy. The interior hotel rooms were small and outdated. The lobby area is...

We made a quick one night stop at HIE in New Bern. This place was clean, well kept and offered a good breakfast bar. The front desk staff was nice enough and efficient. The lobby was clean and well kept. There was space to sit and relax, if that's your thing. They had a second floor sitting area that was...
