This hotel should not be on Expedia. It is under construction, there is no staff on sight. It is not in any condition for people to stay.

Great location, but tragically run down and shabbyPosted May 19, 2015
Pros: The view from the room was lovely - it was on a second floor looking out over the marina, which is in a quiet harbor filled with gorgeous sailboats.
Cons: The building needs to be remodeled overall, both exterior and interior. The room needs a new bed.
Location: The closest town is New Bern, 20 minutes away. This community is residential, with no shops or restaurants. This location is best if you have a boat.
I love boating, so I was excited to stay at a marina. It seemed ideal - across the river from New Bern. Sure enough, the setting was very nice. The marina is part of a community that includes houses, condos, and golfing. Very quiet and secluded. The hotel is in a large building that also houses a restaurant, which we were quite disappointed to find was not in business. The whole building was shabby and poorly maintained. The manager seemed like a sketchy fellow, and I didn't trust him a bit. It looked like some effort had been made with the room, but it was an odd mixture of effort and neglect. For example, the bathroom was nicely painted, with good towels. But there was only one towel per person, and the shower was a stall so small that it was hard to use, and there wasn't enough lighting. The bed had a new, pretty comforter, but it was hard and uncomfortable. The balcony had a beautiful view, but grungy yard sale plastic table and ashtray. The walls of our room were dirty. The "continental breakfast" looked like it came from a gas station - bananas, Little Debbie muffins and a sad danish. Overall, this room was grossly overpriced and disappointing. For this quality room and service, I'd expect to pay about half of what we did. The Hilton or Marriott in New Bern are a better choice, and cheaper too. The part that bothers me the most is that this *should* have been nice. The hotel at a marina full of yachts should be fancy and well-kept. The fact that it's not is sad.

Great Little Hide AwayPosted Feb 6, 2015 on Hotels
My wife, 2 y/o son and I stayed here one night last week while I was traveling for business. The room was very spacious and bed extremely comfortable. The view of the harbor with all the sail boats was spectacular. The managers name slips my mind, but he was one of the kindest and most helpful people I've ever met. We look forward to stopping in again sometime in the future. While I snuck out to get my work done Friday, the wife and kid were able to enjoy the indoor pool at the adjacent rec center. Overall great little get away!

Great marina view.Posted Dec 2, 2014 on Hotels
Room was spacious with a beautiful view of the marina. Staff was very accommodating. Loud TV noise during the night one night. Bathroom lovely. Quality of sheets and towels just OK.

No Stress Location--Beautiful SunsetPosted Aug 21, 2014 on Hotels
Booked this room on an hour's notice while driving south from VA Beach. Inn Keeper Derek called within 15 minutes to arrange to meet me and check me into room. This is not a standard hotel, but a guest room facility for a residential/resort community so there is no lobby. The king room with balcony was very nice, overlooking the marina and restaurant deck below with great views of a beautiful sunset. Restaurant served excellent salmon salad and folk guitar player provided great evening entertainment which I enjoyed from the rooms balcony. Great place to walk on docks and around the facility. Continental breakfast was delivered to the room at my pre-designated time. Not your standard traveling hotel but so worth the trip off of the main roads if you've got the time to stop early and sleep in late while traveling--maybe even spend a few days as there is a golf course in the community.

Amazing personal service and attitude like none I have ever had. Great feel and location. Very cozy. The only drawback for me is I wish showers were bigger..however, highly recommend.

Great location.Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: The view was amazing.
Cons: The window blinds were not ideal for privacy.
The room was very clean, and Derek, the proprietorwwas very nice. He made sure we were comfortable and brought our continental breakfast to our room at the requested time. The facilities are ideal for people who love boats, and is a great place to stay near New Bern. The restaurant is good and had live music on Friday night and a DJ on Saturday.

Nice place beautiful view...butPosted Jun 11, 2014 on Hotels
room was nice but trying to find anyone to check in was terrible it was in the back of a restaurant and no one knew who to talk to about the room. finally found Chris the manager of the restaurant and helped us out. He was very friendly if you stay here ask for him
