“Great Value for an Average B&B...You Get What You Pay For”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2010

We have stayed at multiple B&B's so our opinion is based on our previous experiences. Overall, we enjoyed getting away for the weekend. The price was excellent. We did not stay in the main house, but rather in another home owned by Simply Divine (only a 30 second walk to the main house). The room and home we stayed in was very charming and great for relaxing. This place was ideal for us, as they allowed us to bring our dog. Rob and Carmen were friendly upon our arrival. Carmen even walked us to the house we were staying in and showed us around, which was very nice.

However, the house we stayed in was located right next to railroad tracks and trains did travel at night. Although it did not bother us, you should be aware that it does exist. Also, we were very disappointed in the cleanliness. (Specifically, the carpet in our room was dirty and the bedspread stained; the sun room attached to our quarters (including the hot tub) had various dead bugs; the refrigerator had mold; at breakfast we had a dirty fork and glass). We do not want to make it sound horrible, but just want to provide a realistic, honest, review of our experience. The second home was just opened, but perhaps they should have given themselves more time to clean it, etc. before allowing guests to stay.

The weekend we stayed there was a wedding and guests from overseas. It became clear to us that these individuals were more deserving of the Inn keepers attention. It is not that we necessarily needed anything in particular, but there were just a lot of subtle moments where we felt unimportant compared to the other individuals.

Dunn itself is not an exciting area, but there was a nice museum (William Lee, Father of the Airborne) across the street from the house we stayed in. We learned a lot on our free tour. If you are not looking for a sightseeing-type of vacation, then staying at Simply Divine in Dunn, NC is good for a quiet, relaxing, inexpensive, get-away.

At no time during their stay, did either person mention any issue with any aspect of the Inn. In correspondence after the fact, they stated that it was based on their impressions as they were driving home. They cited dirty issues; every dish that hits the table has been run through a commercial dishwasher which operates at 212 degrees, sterilizing all dishes, glasses and silverware. If there are better ways to provide clean dishes, we're open to any and all ideas.

Also 'subtle moments' when they didn't feel as important as other guests - not sure how we can deal with this as we've never encountered it before among our nearly 1,000 guests.

Dunn is not New York City however there's plenty to do if you have an open mind and are willing to try different things.

If you ever have an issue with an Inn, bring it to the attention of the owners so they can deal with it.

Just returned from a nice weekend at Simply Divine, an elegant and inviting B&B in Dunn, NC. It's close to I-95 if you are driving the Northeast-Florida trail, but we visited to attend a friend's wedding at Campbell University in Buie's Creek and didn't want to stay at a franchise hotel. We saw Simply Divine's great reviews and booked a room. Very glad we did. Spacious, comfortable room, comfortable bed, laid-back hosts who respected our privacy, but were friendly and available when we needed them. And oh that large, sparkling swimming pool - just the thing at the end of a hot day or a long drive. Since this beautiful old home is in a residential area close to the center of town, we did hear the distant train whistles often, but we kinda like that sound, so it wasn't at all bothersome to us. Much better than noisy, late night party-goers or crack-of-dawn door slammers that are all too common in motels. Don't miss this place if you are driving through or visiting the area. Comparable (or better) rates than a decent motel and twice as much value.

Looked for a week at different bed and breakfast inns that would be within a 2 hour drive. After looking at 50-100 sites my boyfriend and I agreed on Simply Divine and we couldn't have been happier!!! Rob and Carmen were gracious hosts, the rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated, the pool felt fabulous and the breakfast was simply divine. We're already planning our next stay and plan on a monthly visit there. Definitely recommend this Inn!!!!! They are the reason Dunn, NC is on the map!

We recently spent a night at Simply Divine in the Jade Room – which was really spacious and comfortable. We were on our journey down from Manhattan to Savannah and, as visitors from the UK on a long road-trip, we were in the process of adjusting to the driving and the travel. This was the perfect stop-off, relaxing and refreshing on a long, long drive. Carmen and Rob are warm and charming and have the gift of making you feel absolutely at home.

The house is glorious – beautifully decorated, comfortable and hospitable. We’d booked in advance for dinner and ate at a table on the porch overlooking the lovely garden in the warm evening air. We also had really interesting talks with other guests and a great breakfast. This place is incredibly reasonable and can’t be faulted as a convenient and delightful stop on a journey.

Carmen and Rob were very personable. The rooms are large, with plenty of windows and nice bathrooms. We stayed in two rooms on two different nights of our trip from Maryland to South Carolina. We broke up the drive to stay in a B&B during our 30th anniversary trip. Well worth stretching the driving length a bit going south to stay here. Nice breakfasts and grand dining room. A large mansion in quiet residential neghborhood. We will stay here again when we travel on 95.

Raeford and I stayed for our 5th wedding anniversary. This bed and breakfast is absolutely wonderful!!! Carmen is extremely sweet and the breakfast was "simply divine". Our room was charming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will visit again--soon!

I live in the area and was amazed on my first visit to the inn. I have had the privilege of viewing each room - gorgeous! And the innkeepers are the best - keep up the good work Rob and Carmen - you are an asset to our wonderful community.
