Typical Holiday Inn. It was clean. I was able to check in before 3 PM which is always appreciated! I missed the selection of pillows available in other hotels. But I did like the late breakfast! There was good access to major roads.

Great location, very helpful staff,property kept up, and hotel clean. Building and rooms are beginning to show a little age, about time for them to start doing some upgrades. But overall, a good choice.

Located close to several local towns including Atlantic Beach, Beaufort, and Fort Macon, NC. We went to enjoy the beach following the Labor Day weekend and had a good time. Lots of local restaurant and places to visit. It's located at the intersection of two major highways which makes it easy to access.
