Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dkb4173 Great Stay, Front Desk Staff friendly and informative
Arrived after a tough week and a long day on the road. Front desk staff were able to help with local information. Erika was able to provide a variety of local restaurant choices. Check in was quick and the room very clean. I was able to get a good nights sleep and was impressed with how comfortable the room felt. Housekeeping staff did a great job setting up the room for my second night and were friendly as well. Everybody was smiling and helpful including the breakfast attendant. Great job everybody!

Great Location near Cherry Point. Great Staff. 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

There was a very hateful lady working in the breakfast area, on Friday morning. There was no gravy for biscuits and she never refilled it. (This was over an hour before the breakfast was to end). Don't know what her problem was but she obviously hates her job. It was very uncomfortable trying to eat and seeing how rude she was to people.
On Saturday, there was a very friendly and helpful lady working in the breakfast area who kept the buffet filled.
Asked to have our sheets changed and they were not.
Didn't receive enough towels in the bathroom.
Front desk were very friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adwoman#1 A Great stay, I would do it again and I will.
While working in Havelock NC this past March I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and could not have been happier. The staff was delightful, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. I wake up very early when I am on the road, but had no trouble getting a fresh hot cup of coffee and variety of breakfast items to choose from. Next time I am in Havelock I will stay at the Holiday Inn Express, I can't wait.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bigslam123 All Around Great Stay, In Spite of Awkward Shower
Overall it was a good experience. The rooms are insanely clean and well stocked. The beds are comfortable. My only issue with the room is the shower. The shower had some mold on the corners of the glass areas and the door opens into the shower in an odd way that forces you to scrunch into the corner of the shower in order to have the ability to close the door. Other than that, it was a good experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jersey Grandma1 Great hotel !
We stayed there for 3 nights @ end of Mar.2015. I can't say enough for this hotel !! Every staff member that I came in contact with was exceptionally friendly - front desk, cleaning and breakfast attendant. My grandchildren enjoyed the lovely indoor pool and the workout room. Great selection of pillows and comfortable mattresses. Everywhere you looked in the hotel was spotless. Hot breakfast was large, fresh and delicious. I wish all hotels were as nice as this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Patton 1 Rude cleaning employee
I was extremely disappointed by the way me and my wife were treated by an employee in housekeeping, Evelyn. She was very rude to us regarding our 4lb yorkie puppy. We advised her that we were platinum members and that we've stayed on other floors besides the 1st floor with our dog. When she called down to the front desk her comment was "They're supposedly platinum members and they say their in room 417 and they have a dog." She had such sarcasim and distrust in her voice. We do not leave our dog in the room unattended. We were in the pool area and the dog was sitting in my husband's lap. Instead of coming to me or my husband, she yells in the pool area, "Are you the lady with the dog?" and I replied yes. She said "The dog is not allowed in the pool area." My husband immediately took the dog upstairs and stayed with her, while I was in the pool. Again, she was EXTREMELY RUDE!!! On Saturday, we left about 12:30p amd advised the front desk lady that we would like our room cleaned. When we got back at about 7p, our room had not been cleaned, the trash wasn't emptied, nor was the bed made. We had clean towels. The young lady at the front desk came up and apologized and brought us clean sheets and some tolietries and coffee. On our way out, my husband had advised the young lady at the front desk that we were checking out. Before we left I expressed my disappointment to the front desk young lady. I noticed that as I was telling her about Evelyn, that she was in the foyer waiting for the elevator. The front desk clerk proceeded to get the manager on duty. I spoke with the manager on duty, Lisa and expressed my dislike on how we were treated. Lisa was very apologetic and advised me the regional manager was aware of our situation. I received an email from my bank stating my account is overdrawn. I checked my account and noticed that my account was billed 3 times by Holiday Inn Express. I've called and left a message inquiring about why my card was charged 3 times. I would have given a better rating because the front office staff was kind and so were the managers, however, that one employee ruined our stay. She needs to take people interaction courses and learn better people skills. There's a difference between informative and rude. We really like that location, however, I'm not sure if we will stay there again.

This is my "Go To" hotel when travelling to eastern NC. The hotel is relatively new and it is well kept. This particular visit was made very special during check-in when Holly went the extra mile in making check-in easy after a reservations blunder at another hotel brand. I had tried to book the HIE the night before, but no rooms were available. After the reservation blunder, I called HIE to see if maybe someone had cancelled. This is when Holly said she was showing that there was an empty room but would need to physically check it before she could guarantee it. She checked as I drove to the hotel, and we met in the lobby. Not only did she make checking in painless, she gave me a special rate and a very nice room. Additionally, during checkout, Frankie and manager, Cindy made me feel more like family than a departing hotel guest. In my experiences, Holiday Inn Express' rooms and condition are similar across the country. What makes a Holiday Inn Express "special" is the staff. I've never been disappointed at this hotel. (The only reason staff and service did not receive the highest mark is that the scrambled egg tray was empty for a half hour while the attendant was in and around the great room.)
