Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by starsthatlaugh Great Stay!
My husband, son and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express over Thanksgiving weekend. The staff was courteous and friendly. Rooms were clean and well maintained. What was most impressive was that most everything in the room was white. No lumpy comforters on the bed....just bright white sheets and spreads. Clean and crisp.
The breakfast buffet had a variety of selections. There was always a staff member present keeping the area well stocked and cleaned.
All in all our experience here was top notch. We were visiting Busco Beach so we had brought along our ATV's. At check-in we were told where to park so that our vehicle and trailer were visible from our room. We were also told that security would keep an extra eye out for us. We witnessed the hotel security walking by on several occasions and never had any problems. I would definitely recommend the hotel.

I have always had good experiences when staying at this hotel and I am sure I will again. The only thing that did not go well was the shower experience. My roommate was unable to adjust the heat during her shower when it suddenly became too hot. We were also not able to get the faucet to cut off and had to call the staff to come and turn it off. I do not know if the problem was taken care of because we only stayed overnight and the staff did not come back before we checked out. Overall it was a good visit as always, I would still stay with this hotel again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fishingnut check in
when I was checking in, the young lady at the desk was so busy talking to someone she didn't even scan my keys and after I got to the 3rd floor room, I found it out since they didn't work. When I booked my room at 9am, I chose a package they offered that gave me a box of local products. When I checked in at 4 pm, I asked about it and the girl didn't know what I was talking about. She asked someone else and they said I had to make my reservations early so they could go get the stuff. I told I made them that morning. She said they didn't keep some of the things that goes into the gift box cause they would spoil. She said she could have it that afternoon, I told her I was checking out the next morning and I would be going away from the motel. If the motel is going to offer thing like the gift box and I had to pay $10 extra for it, a least they could have the things to go into it. They had plenty of time to got the things before I got there. The girl that checked me in was more interested in talking to her friends than check in a guest.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by topher333 Tried to give this hotel a chance
Again the hotel was disorganized and not ready for guests. The room lacked the standard amenities that would allow you to work and relax so you could be ready to take on a new day. I will be looking for a new place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by topher333 substandard for an IHG property
Room was average
TV channels limited and breakfast was cold. It was difficult to relax and unwind Hopefully the property will improve with the remodeling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mwarren13 terrible experience
I have never had a worse experience even in some of the cheapest motels. And I expected so much more from this place. There were problems with the sheets. I found hair on the pillow cases and instead of sending someone to change the bed sheeting and pillow cases, they just had someone bring me two pillow cases. I reported my stay to someone on the phone already but I thought the compensation was quite inconsiderate. I had two rooms total. My grandchildren had a room to themselves and they found women's underwear in their room. I reported all this to the front desk. I thought that they would try giving us a better room but they were so nonchalant about the whole experience. There were no other vacancies in the Kinston, N.C. Holiday Inn. (where I wanted to be because that is my home city) But we live in Stafford, Va. and were on vacation. What a bad vacation. I look forward to hearing from management and some type of reputable compensation for such an experience.

We stayed in 6 hotels in our Cycle North Carolina Mountains to the Coast bike ride. This one was by far our favorite. Clean. Smoke free. Very comfortable bed. Friendly helpful front desk staff. And a nice breakfast. I can't over emphasize the comfortable bed. I slept well at this one.

This is a very convenient place to stay when we visit family in the area. I could go on and on about the good things about this property, but to shorten my review, I will just say that the staff make this place rock! Ms. Ann is great at getting the breakfast started and visiting while making sure everything is stocked. The office staff will go out of their way to make your reservation work out, even though my situation was very complicated, they fixed everything. The only negative - AT ALL- that I can say about this property is that it is time for renovations. It is clean, but needs updating.
Thank you! HI-Express-Goldsboro! Home away from home.
