Review of New Bern Day's Inn entitled "Run".

The New Bern Days Inn is a substandard hotel and I do not recommend it at all. "Run"'s comments about the city of New Bern as a place to visit are way off base. New Bern is a beautiful quaint town with many things to see and do. The town was originally the capital of NC before Raleigh. The main attraction in town is the Tryon Palace - originally the governor's mansion. There are also historic trolley tours, a fireman's museum, many, many great antique shops, art galleries and specialty shops, and river boat tours. There isn't a lot of night life, but on weekends there is usually live music at Captain Ratty's and the Sheraton. If this visitor locked himself in his room at the Day's Inn and didn't get out to see the town, then he doesn't know what he missed. Perhaps he would have had a better time if he had stayed at a decent hotel or one of the charming bed and breakfast inns instead of the cheapest in town. Visit New Bern, you won't regret it.

Unfortunatly the Days Inn advertises itself as the "Historic New Bern Days Inn" and their rates are the cheapest around so they attract visitors who aren't familiar with the area. You can stay right downtown on the water at the Comfort Inn, Bridge Point, Sheraton or a beautiful B&B for not too much more. The Days Inn is in the "Five Points" section of New Bern which is between the Historic downtown district and the main shopping centers( Wal- Mart, Target and our little bitty mall). Five Points is run down and home to the city's housing projects so it's not the prettiest part of New Bern. It is an area that the city's redevelopment team have targeted to beautify and attract more businesses to since it is a prime location.

The redevelopment of Historic downtown New Bern has been a great success- you can check out before and after pictures on the City of New Bern website. The beautiful Union Point riverfront park was once the site of a gas station and a dump site- hard to believe it you saw it now! Ocotber is a great time to visit New Bern as the Mumfest is coming up Oct. 14th and the Ghost Walk (my favorite!)on the 26th- 28th. Make sure to make your reservations early because the good hotels fill up quickly.
