Reviewed 15 September 2011

Very nice new facility with a helpful and friendly staff. Location is off a service rode and behind a McDonalds. We booked trip late so didn't have many options. Hotel is about 7 min. drive from New Bern Convention Center.

Room Tip: Our king room w/ mini fridge was very large.

New hotel. Everything very nice. Staff was excellent and helpful, especially the manager. Loved the business center in the hotel. Room and all areas very clean. The room was well furnished.

Room Tip: Right across the street from a Ruby Tuesday's and a McDonald's.

I was really shocked because normally I do not like best westerns but this one was wonderful. It was very clean. I was unhappy because I booked through expedia and ended up being charged a different price the next day. They added 22.00 in taxes! Normally when I book on expedia, the taxes are already included when I check out. So if you book this way... make sure to expect and additional 22.00 added to your bill. Also the hot tub was out of order and the indoor pool was so cold we couldn't swim in it.

For those like us who don't think of Best Westerns as upscale, this property will completely change your mind. Located behind a Ruby Tuesdays, gas station, and Waffle House, it is, quite literally, a hidden gem. Stepping inside, you would think you are in a W hotel or other fancy property sporting modern, clean, minimalist decor. Our room was huge and well-appointed, with dark wood furniture, separate sitting area with a large sofa and large flat screen TV, and an incredibly comfortable bed. The hotel is new and well-kept, and even has a new hotel smell. The fitness room was well-equipped and the indoor pool was spotless. The front desk staff was very friendly. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. The complimentary breakfast isn't that extensive, but is adequate, and the sitting area was being cleared and cleaned continuously. Plenty of parking and easy access to I-70 and charming downtown New Bern (we had an amazing dinner at Chelsea's, which never disappoints). Excellent value for the price. Highly recommended.

I've stayed in a few New Bern hotels while dropping off and picking up kid from camp. This is the nicest-probably because it is brand new. The name "riverside inn" is a bit misleading-as it is really by the highway. But it is only a 2 mle drive to historic New Bern. And easy access to road to Seafarer. Very quiet.

The Best Western Riverside was great! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff were some of the nicest I have ever encountered.
