Our goal was to visit historic New Bern and this hotel is in a very good location for that. Just a couple miles down the road and we were in the old town. After a lovely walk around New Bern and dinner we returned to our pleasant clean room at the Holiday Inn Express. WiFi worked well. Breakfast was very...

Stayed at this hotel recently while on business in the area. Hotel was nice and clean but not anything special and it is located more on the outskirts of town near the highway. We have stayed at nicer HIE's before.

We arrived late in town on a Friday night of a road trip with no reservations. We are slight fans of Holiday Inn Express for their consistency. This is an above average HIE property with an OUTDOOR POOL! Not many of those anymore. Since we arrived so late and checked out fairly early, our experience was limited. Our room was...

I've spent many nights in Holiday Inn hotel and this is a very good property. The desk staff was great and very helpful. There are plenty of restaurants nearby with easy access. I'll be staying here the next time I'm in the area.

The hotel exterior, lobby and staff were wonderful. It was a very peaceful stay and housekeeping did an amazing job. The only downside to this hotel is that it is time to get new mattresses they have ran their course and fought a good fight.

We spent a Saturday night here. Staff is friendly and check in and out was quick and easy. Room was pretty good, bed was a little softer that wife would like. Breakfast is the usual at Holiday Inn. We were disappointed that there was no orange juice, milk or even water at the time we went down for breakfast. Would...

I've stayed here several times over the past few years. This is a good place to sleep for a night or two. The beds are not the best but the rooms are always very clean and very nice. The wifi is always spotty and in some parts of the hotel impossible to keep a good connection. This makes it tough...

Arrived around midnight, well lit foyer and greeted right away. Nice open sitting area in lobby. Room 215, spacious w/ mini fridge & microwave, king bed. Big clean bathroom. HIE is loved by my husband for their free breakfast, but he was sorely disappointed in the morning when he was told their pancake machine was not operating. (later we found...

We stayed here for a night while visiting some family in New Bern. We loved it! The staff were very friendly & accommodating. They allowed us to check in early (which was great, because we had to check out of our hotel in Atlantic Beach at 11 & had nowhere to go) & provided a crib for our two yr...

This is a nice hotel that is very clean. The bed was very comfortable.Just a few minutes from downtown New Bern. We wanted to visit the "Birth Place of Pepsi" town. A short drive to town and plenty of free parking in town. Breakfast was very good-delicious sausage & biscuits, bacon, sausage and of course, my husbands favorite, cinnamon rolls....
