We stayed here on a whim, as we were going to a Salem Red Sox game in Kinston vs the Indians. It was one of the nicest days we had on our road trip! The hotel staff were outstanding, always friendly, and making you feel at home. The room was just right, the pool was fine, breakfast great...just a nice stay!
I'd suggest driving down the road a bit to go to King's for some great Carolina bbq-get a pig in a pup-bbq pork/cole slaw in a hush puppy-I could go for one right now!!!
My only concern was a sign at the desk posted by the police requesting guests not leave valuable out in their cars as there had been break-ins in Kinston. I assumed this was downtown, but after seeing that and having out of state plates, I was nervous, but by the time I left I felt completely safe and comfortable and had a great time here!!More
