While the property itself is nice the management and staff leave a lot to be desired. Upon arrival the first thing I saw was "touch curb, penalty applies", next is restrooms for paying guests only then internet for paying guests only. This did not give off a welcome feeling at all. Made me feel as if I were entering a...

Pretty standard place. Friendly reception, ok rooms and average breakfast. You might want to choose first floor as the lift to second floor is incredibly slow and second floor does not offer advantages.

The facilities were clean, and the staff were exceptionally prompt and friendly. The lobby was nice and inviting. Breakfast was decent. They did have eggs and pancakes on this trip, and they were OK. We would stay again.

Reviewed 20 April 2014

Hotel and room was very clean. This was our first stay with any IHG hotel. The hotel was a little bit over-priced considering the terrible eggs at breakfast and the lack of pancakes or waffles. The breakfast area was clean and kept stocked while we were there. However, I believe they use powdered reconstituted egg powder. YUCK. If the eggs...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days, it was clean, very quiet and great staff. The bed was comfortable except for small pillows. I would recommend this Holliday Inn to any one looking for good value. Seems to be fairly new.

I have stayed at this hotel twice in the past two weeks after medical procedures. The staff is most accommodating and the rooms are clean and priced fairly. I highly recommend if you are in New Bern. The location was perfect for us being very close to the medical offices on Glenburnie road.

We were in town for a family reunion and simply needed somewhere to crash. The room was of good size and the bed was really comfortable, but there was a musky smell like old cigarettes. The complementary breakfast was good enough for folks on the go. The small frig and microwave were a definite plus.
