Visitors who need a convenient place to stay while passing through the New Bern area, or who need a launching point for exploring the historic downtown region and neighboring sites, can stay at the nicely located Holiday Inn Express New Bern. Situated along Business US Highway 17, (and just off the main highway which bypasses the town), this hotel is close to restaurants, grocery stores, and even shopping malls, for the convenience of tired travelers.

Guests will be just 10-15 minutes away from the downtown area, where cool and historic sites like Tryon Palace and the Birthplace of Pepsi Museum can be found, but it is also close to the more commercial section of the city, where a range of shopping centers, chain restaurants, and other services are located. Visitors can relax at the outdoor pool and fitness center, utilize the business center and free parking at their leisure, and can even enjoy a hot daily breakfast at the breakfast bar, before retiring to the sweetly appointed rooms. (Individual room amenities include flat screen TVs, pull-out sofas, mini-fridges and microwaves, free Wi-Fi, and high-pressure showerheads in the bathrooms.) Comfortable and accommodating, the Holiday Inn Express New Bern is a solid choice for visitors who prefer the outskirts of the downtown area.
