Members of staff were professional friendly and made me feel like I was at home! They were helpful in giving directions to local attractions and greeted me each time I entered and exited the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by big ma Great service and staff
We recently stayed at this hotel and really enjoyed our visit. The staff was very polite and helpful. Our TV was not changing channels when we arrived and someone from the front desk came up right away and fixed the problem. The breakfast offered a great variety from cereal and instant oatmeal to eggs, bacon, sticky buns, pancakes and many more items. The rooms were spacious and clean, as was the bathroom. The only complaint of the whole visit was that there was no fan in the bathroom. Overall, we were very satisfied and plan on returning again next year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FamilyfromIL Front Desk Staff Extraordinary
I was very impressed with the front desk staff (especially Sam who was extraordinary). She was friendly and helpful...everything you expect from the service industry. I rated room cleanliness poor because our room was not cleaned one day. I was also disappointed that the laundry facilities were not working.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MK Lady Very Enjoyable Stay
My family lives in Morehead City and I've been visiting there all my life. I've stayed at other hotels and with family members on these visits. There aren't enough stars to describe my stay at this facility.
Comfort: The bed was so soft I sept an average of 2 hours later than I usually do -- my internal clock was put in vacation mode because of the comfort level. There is no such thing as too many pillows for me, the 4 big fluffy ones on the bed were like heaven.
Breakfast: Be sure to try the automatic pancake maker! Fun Stuff!! The variety was incredible. I expected cereal, fruit and coffee. Schedule breakfast into your itinerary every day you stay here.
Staff and Service: From the front desk to the lady who refilled the breakfast items, to the housekeeping staff -- these folks personify Southern Hospitality.
Value: You can't put a price on this type of service. You definitely want to spend the money to ensure the level of professionalism that makes for a wonderful vacation.
Be sure to try the local eateries (El's Drive Inn and Smithfield Chicken

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimHHHHHHH What Holiday Inn is Supposed to Be
I was in Morehead City for the 9th annual Military Appreciation Day. What a pleasant surprise when I arrived at the Holiday Inn for the evening. This hotel is what Holiday Inn is supposed to be like! The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was A-1 and as friendly as can be ... there were plenty of smiles to go around. The room was comfortable and quiet and I was able to get two great nights of sleep and rest. The breakfast was the standard fare for Holiday Inn but it was at least warm and tasty and got me off to the day's festivities with a full belly. The only thing I would like to see changed would be more tables in the seating area. Instead of more tables/chairs, they installed a big eating bar in the middle of the room. Still at the times I went down to breakfast, I was still able to get a table for breakfast. Thank you to the staff for making my stay enjoyable. Rah!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by beachbum718 Addendum to 2nd shift desk clerk ruined my vacation
The clock in my room did not work and I intentionally left my cell phone at home so that I would have a relaxing vacation which was ruined by your staff's indecorous behavior. I did not dare want to ruffle anyone's feather's by asking for a replacement alarm clock ..... God forbid that she roll her eyes at me and think I was born on Noah's Ark because I didn't have an i- phone ... which I do. Also the light bulb on the right hand side of the lamp next to the bed is burnt out. I left the housekeeper a note. Hopefully the items have been repaired and the next guest will have a better experience than I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1tjscott Relaxing and comfortable
From the moment you walk into the lobby you will understand why people are sitting around talking and relaxing. The staff is kind and helpful and not too busy to tell you where the best seafood can be found (and they would be right). There is no shortage of hotels in the area and none with the staff as helpful and kind as these.
Whether you want to check in and go to your room and be left alone or come down and have a conversation with a fellow traveler, you will feel comfortable here... Tim

We experienced some issues when we first arrived but the staff was ready to accommodate our requests and make our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is close to everything and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great get away!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WMB1 Cleanliness, etc
The members of the staff we met were all courteous and professional, and personable and satisfactorily addressed every request.
The hotel needs somebody to review the quality of housekeeping. I had to point out that the floor of the elevator had not been cleaned for at least 3 days. (Same grease, same boot prints.) this was shared with front desk staff and immediately addressed.
The jet tub in our bathroom needed to be cleaned on arrival. This is something we did to be sure it was done properly. We also wiped down all the fixtures. The bathroom floor was sticky which suggests it was being swept or or only dusted using a sticky roller.
Fitness room needs to have individual wipes for wiping down the equipment after (& before) use. I used a dampened towel to wipe down handles before using the equipment and was surprised at what came off. This was shared with front desk staff.
All that said, I would still recommend this hotel. The location is convenient, the staff nice, and despite the issues above the facility is in good shape.

The Holiday Inn Express in Morehead City is definitely my #1 choice. I have traveled all over the world during my working years and have found it rare to find such a bargin as I find here. The staff is ourtstanding and treat you like family. They try their best to make you feel at home. No request is to small or large. I have stayed there numerous time and will continue to do so when I go there. They always remember me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TER721 Rough Week
The staff was great. Everyone was polite and very helpful. Tried to make the most of a very bad situation.
An overzealous plumber flooded the third floor. Had to shift rooms that day. Staff was great.
No hot water the next day. Made getting ready for a business meeting much more challenging. Again the staff did the best they could.
Seemed to be popular destination for pre-teen travel groups. The staff did a great job keeping the food out in the middle of a young person swarm every morning.
Fitness room is in need of some upgrading. If you come bring some clothes to run outside.

Stay at this hotel all of the time, Great Staff and Barb is great with the Breakfast. The only problem with the hotel is the Housekeeping staff..... during my stays at least one time during the week they short the room with towels. Fix the housekeeping and this Hotel would be the best... I stay at hotel 50 weeks a year.

We stopped in Morehead city on the way back from Myrtle Beach for a couple of days. We found the beach here great and the food in Morehead city and out on the island at Flipperz outstanding. A visit to the fort(Macon) is a must. Hotel was very nice and modern.

I would have to say that the customer service at this hotel was EXCEPTIONAL!!!! The young ladies that helped us were so friendly. I would love to have people like them everywhere I go. Life would be so much more pleasant. My only complaint was that the beds we had were not up to par compared to other Holiday Inn's we have to stayed in before. But not enough that we wouldn't return. We WILL!!!

I always have a pleasant stay at this location. No complaints really. The only thing is this last time I stayed there, the AC's compressor made a really loud noise when it kicked in and it was difficult to block it out so I could sleep. I meant to tell the girl at the front desk so they could look in to it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scrag Excellent Customer Care!
I experienced an exceptional Front Desk Employee on Saturday 3/8/14. Our car battery was dead when we went to leave. The Front Desk employee found jumper cables for us and pulled her car around to ours to assist in getting our car started. Can't remember her name but she went above and beyond to help us out. The only concern I have is that I left my iPhone Charger in my room. I called back and found out it had been discovered. I was told that someone would call me concerning getting the charger returned. It has been a week and I have not heard from anyone. Very disappointed about that. I travel a lot with work and stay at HI Express whenever possible. Being a Priority Member I expected a quicker response concerning the charger.

Have stayed here before, not the best value in the area but overall consistent, used shampoo bottle left in room and manager personally went and got it and inspected the room, no follow up but it was corrected, nothing that really sets this property apart from other options, it has had some turnover and I would recommend it but not with a lot of fanfare

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blondie33160 Awesome Hotel & Excellent Staff
In my 3 years of constant travel Serena was by far the best customer service rep I have ever dealt with. She was off the hook to all of us Corporate Lodging folks. Also the hotel was exceptionally nice. I look forward to being in this area again so I can stay here again. My only complaints would be the internet was a bit slow and the water pressure was not the greatest but those things are so minor in comparison to the awesome customer service and the niceness of the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lee50 Front desk associates award winning smile
Greeted upon arrival with a smile & sincerity led to a great relaxing enviroment. Personally felt at home away from home as if distance family. Manager on duty was neat, well seasoned to welcome guest which adds to pleasantry knowing the hotel is in good hands. Inside the room finds: awesome photos on wall of wild horses & vast distant dreaming looking out to ocean & sky. From amenities to the welcoming nicely spread breakfast prepared by friendly hotel staff is A+. I would definitely stay each time I frequent the area.
