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 The interior hotel rooms were small and outdated.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...

We spent one night here in room 227 which was a king bed room. Really nice and clean Holiday Inn Express. There was a new dude at the front desk who had a trainer with him and they did an excellent job of getting us checked in. We normally run into a problem of chemical smells (Fabreze or something similar)...

We stopped here during Project Fear Is Horseplay, and was blown away by the service, rooms, and breakfast. Literally no complaints about this hotel at all. The house keepers were friendly, just as the front desk lady was (shout out to the blonde British woman!). Rooms were clean, and breakfast was delicious. Offering more than just toast and fruit they...

Stayed her 2 nights. Nice and clean. Good breakfast. Lobby was 2 story and pretty. Beds were nice, she's were soft. Good location. We were within 10 minutes of all 3 parks we played at. Across the street from the mall, and about 10 minutes from the interesting downtown and waterfront.

This was a 50/50 proposition. I loved the lobby and the décor and color coordination was bright and bold. The room was comfy...except the chair and ottoman looked like someone had a drooling party on it...that was groooossss. I was too exhausted to change rooms or debate, so I covered up the unsightly mess with a towel and kept it...

Hotel location is centrally locatedd - convenient to both downtown New Bern and MCAS Cherry Point. We found the hotel staff to be both friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, and our bed was comfortable. Complementary breakfast items were fresh and tasty.

I always stay at this HIE in New Bern when in the area to visit family. Staff is wonderful and friendly - from the front desk to housekeeping. The rooms I have stayed in have been roomy and very clean - including the bathroom (I am pretty fussy!) Beds are super comfy with pillow choices of soft or firm. WIFI...
