Nice owners - Poor facilities

Posted Sep 19, 2016
I understand the owners are trying to do renovations BUT meanwhile the carpets had a stale smell and room needed major updates.

...but the shower was nice.

If I were traveling with my family I would absolutely not stay here... If it's just me again, and I know someone staying at the same hotel, I might stay again... I won't stay there again unless I know someone else there.

One of Kinston's finest...

Hotel is an older hotel that was probably great in its day and seemed to be still under renovation. I arrived around 11:30 and the couple received me graciously and the gentleman came to the room to help with the door lock. Seemed that you had to finagle the card a bit to get it to go all the way in to unlock the door. The shower water was quite hot enough and the cold water was more of a trickle than a stream so starting out with cold and then slowly increasing hot was the trick to a comfortable shower. WiFi was great! The breakfast was sparse but adequate. I think this hotel will improve with time. They said they have only been there two years. Time will tell. Okay for the price and the selection of hotels in the area.

We stayed for one night of our 2 night stay. It was so miserable. I found blood on the underside of my pillow. And saw at least 4 roaches. We left and rented another place. Dont stay here

Great place to stay

River inn is a great place to stay for business travelers. It was quiet, had a comfortable bed, good shower/bathroom, good continental breakfast, and free wi-fi.

Not what was advertised

Posted Jan 4, 2016
Pros: The area I was put in was run down.
Cons: Put all visitors in the good section and leave the other section until renovations are complete.
Location: Location was ok.
When I made this reservation, this hotel was rated as 3.6...newly renovated, nice clean rooms, blah, blah, blah...there were renovated rooms, but not the one I got! It stunk, was run down and dank. Breakfast was beyond disappointing!!! Loaf bread for toast. The dining area was nastier then my room. The best thing I can say is the manager was nice.

Find a better hotel.

Posted Oct 26, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel should be condemmed. The lobby is not being used since the check in desk is in one of the rooms. Pool was closed. Breaks in the walls, taped over holes in the drywall, old dirty carpet, uncomfortable bed. This hotel was only half open. If I weren't so tired and it was late I would have looked for another hotel. The other reviews are probably done by the hotel owners. To give this hotel one star is to overrate it. Every thing about this hotel is old and run down. Was in the hotel the night of October 22. Did not sleep well. Put my shoes on to walk to the bathroom. Kept my bag on the desk. I should have gone to the Hampton Inn just up the street.

Zero frills, just a place to sleep

Posted Sep 17, 2015 on Hotels
Sparsely furnished and no frills. A reasonably comfortable bed, an alarm clock, t.v. with so-so DirecTV cable, and towels enough for one person. This is a place to go and sleep if you're traveling by yourself and don't want to spend much money, but for that, it's perfectly reasonable.
