“Nice place to stay in New Bern”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Stayed one night in this place in late March, on my way back from a road trip to Florida. Its location (across a bridge from downtown New Bern) may be a tiny bit of a drag for some people. More than making up for this fact, the price is correct, the rooms are nice & clean, and the people at the front desk are extremely nice. Good place indeed to stay in New Bern.

Stayed March 2014, travelled solo

We just returned home from a weekend in New Bern. Our sailing organization was given red carpet treatment for our Invitational Regatta at the BridgePointe, and we really appreciated all of their efforts to make our event a success. All of the staff was extremely attentive to our varied needs at the marina and in the hotel, and they us a great rate for the group. Their banquet facility is very nice and great views of the rivers. I have been in this area for many years and understand what a huge effort was made to recover from devastating hurricane/storm damage. I want to commend the owners and staff and thank them for an excellent weekend.

The exterior (renewed?) disguises the age of this facility, which is older than it looks. The rooms are a good size, but the baths are TINY... one person only. The bed had seen better days, but was comfortable, with five nice pillows. The room's other amenities were simple but sufficient, and the rooms facing the west have a pleasant view of the Trent River. The free breakfast consisted of coffee, juice, DIY waffles, boiled eggs, toast, muffins, bagels, muffins, and instant grits. The room was clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. There's an outdoor pool, marina, and free, easy-access wifi. The best part was that a coupon from a magazine at the tourist information office got us a room for less than eighty dollars (taxes included) on a Saturday night in the middle of March.

I stayed at the Bridgepointe Hotel again this past weekend and was once again thoroughly satisfied with my stay. While the hotel is obviously an older facility, it is expertly maintained. The rooms and grounds are both well maintained by a caring staff.

No matter where I have stayed I have never had a hotel have fresh "movie theater" style popcorn available upon check-in.....Great little perk....

My room had a great view of the harbor, microwave, small refrigerator, desk, coffee maker,iron and ironing board. All the amenities your room needs. Plus the free breakfast was adequate and well stocked. If there is anything they can do, they should upgrade the TV's and available channels.....maybe add pay per view movies.....

Otherwise a perfect stay for the money....

Not a lot to say. An older property, but well maintained. Cleanliness and comfort were satisfactory. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Nice to see a large breakfast room with a full time attendant taking care of it. Obsolete TV sets need to be replaced by flat screens.

Location is attractive, across the river from down town New Bern.

I am not a picky person, but I felt like I needed a shower after leaving here. My family and I stayed here and my daughter's first comment was, "It stinks!" The first floor had no smoking signs but it reeked of smoke! Then we opened the door to our room and it smelled like urine. Did not want to take a shower/bath here..the tub was very dirty. Rust on the ceiling in the bathroom. We actually found a cleaner place in Havelock. For a place on the water, we were hoping for more. I felt like I could breathe once leaving.

After reading some reviews and needing a place to stay after the storm that hit the East we headed for the Bridge Point Inn. It was everything the previous people wrote about. We were most satisfied and were able to enjoy a lovely sunset from the 4th floor room overlooking the water.

Went to the Thai Thai restaurant.....excellent and very friendly owner. It is well worth going to. Locals support it whole heartedly.

Historic houses and palace history all very interesting.

Room Tip: 4th floor had king size bed and good views. It was very quiet
