This is a very nice mid-range hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The staff was very helpful. Their restaurant recommendation was spot on. (see the review of Paula's Pizza.)

The décor is lovely, the room was clean and the beds were soft. The hallway was clean and it smelled good and fresh. The food was as expected, it was well stocked and fresh. The clerk was kind. I have not complaints. I would stay here again.

We only stayed here for one night because the check in staff member was so rude and unprofessional. The hotel is old and the room smelled old and of mildew. The bed was hard as a brick, bathroom sink leaked and wouldn't drain. The hotel backs up against some parking lot full of old broken down cars that smelled of...

The cleanliness is noticed while walking through the parking lot into the hotel. The ambiance is relaxing and the food selections are pretty good for breakfast. The bedroom was very comfortable, the bathroom seemed so new as well and the color schemes perfect for relaxation. The front desk staff was accommodating and allowed my business trip to be well accommodated.

This hotel is clean, breakfast was good and what you would expect from a HI Express. People at desk where very friendly. We had large RV and were able to park right next door. We would stay here again.

I had the opportunity to stay here for a week on business. Very nice hotel. Rooms were kept very clean every day. The ladies who kept the rooms clean were great! The gentleman at the front desk was not only helpful, but also very polite, and the nicest person. Very professional. The lady though, not so much. Don't get the...

Truly enjoyed our stay here. Staff was attentive and responded positively to our requests. Would stay here again. It is convenient to the entire area, the rooms are well kept and it was quiet and peaceful. The hotel is non smoking, handicap accessible and close to several restaurants.

The property is in a good location and is clean. The breakfast was fine with lots of room for seating. The hotel is energy friendly - once you enter your room you will slide your room card in the slot to turn on the room's electricity. New Bern was a nice find.

I did not stay. I had previously booked for several days. I was there for my father's funeral. I needed to cut my visit short as the funeral was unexpectedly scheduled for later in the week than previously thought. Said I had to cancel my previous reservation and then rebook. But cancelling the previous reservation then meant they had no...

This property is in a great location, close to shopping, a short drive to downtown. There is a nice open staircase to the second floor and it is open and airy, which has a nice feel to it. Overall the staff is friendly and engaging, however the breakfast attendant on the Sunday we checked out was unfriendly to say the...
