I visited New Bern for business but can often fit in a quick trip to a local art gallery or some shopping. New Bern never disappoints! There is always plenty of terrific shopping, great sites to see
(both historical and newer).
My stay at the Holiday Inn Express was a quick overnight for business. The staff greeted me warmly and were accommodating by providing me with recommendations and directions as needed.
The lighting in the bathroom was "the best" - if you want ambient lighting, this was not it. This lighting made me realize I've got to change bulbs and styles of lights at home to meet the standards of this hotel - it really was terrific for grooming and had there been an easy chair in there, I would have much preferred it for reading!
The room was very clean, bed was comfortable and lines was a good quality. The morning breakfast had plenty of items to choose from and there was a steady supply of coffee.
The hotel was close to shopping areas and getting into and out of the downtown New Bern area was easy and efficient.
Bottom line: I will choose this hotel for another stay [Less]
