Recently, we spent four nights at the Ziegler Hotel Suites in New Bern, NC. We'd heard about the Zig through friends and were particularly glad to see how unique this small hotel was. Having been built in the 1940's, it's still laid out just like what it was . . . an old motor court. Small buildings with just a couple of room each, a courtyard and parking lot, and an office in an old, refurbished house on the premises.
The landscaping was fresh and new, with a tropical, North Carolina feel, The exterior decor was also bright with welcoming red doors, chairs and benches and paved parking lot.
The rooms? Oh my! Each room has its own theme....we stayed in Room 5 with a Frank Sinatra-Rat Pack feel. Lots of black and white photos, movies posters and wood paneling. But, the amenities include everything one wants for an enjoyable stay. Fridge with a freezer, microwave, coffee maker...an HD TV...WiFi...comfortable bed...a couple of chairs and a desk. Everything was clean and fresh.
The Zig is pet-friendly, a real bonus these days. The cost is affordable although the unique, fun quality of the Zig cannot be compared to the standardized, cookie cutter aspects of the other hotels in town. (Nothing wrong with those hotels, it's just that the Ziegler was quite fun.)
Rodger and Ruthie make sure that your stay is fun and comfortable. If you need anything, just ask them...
I highly recommend the Ziegler as a fun addition to any New Bern stay.
