Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Kinston

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overall, we were happy with the hotel. There isn't much in Kinston, so the location is about as good as it gets. However, every online listing stated that this hotel would have cribs available. Luckily, I called the hotel three days before our trip, and I was told that they have never offered cribs for guests. That would have ruined our trip if we hadn't checked and planned ahead.

Average at best. Youngstown-Warren Holiday Inn Express has a significantly higher standard.

2 attempts to get the hotel to agree to a refund for the 2nd reserved night which was not used have been unsuccessful. So far, the hotel has refused to agree to a credit for the unused night. The hotel is not in a very convenient place; back in a field by itself with a road to it that does not look like it goes anywhere. The room was okay, but the bed linens did not feel fresh and there was a visible stain on the comforter.

We actually arrived a day early and they honored our reservations without any problems. Great freindly staff. Would certainly stay there again if back in Kinston.

Staff pleasant and cooperative. Will use facility again

the family was there for a family vacation. the staff was very pleasent. All who I encountered had smiles and were very nice. [...]

I stayed there because my son graduated from college in Greenville and all hotels were booked. We were slightly upset at the drive but when we arrived at the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised. Room was spacious, very clean, comfortable, movie theater and restaurant right next door!

Staff was extemely friendly and helpful. We got a 10% off coupon for Golden Corral next door within walking distance. Hot breakfast included was good. Nice room with a great shower and confortable bed.

[...]The hotel staff was friendly, offered me water and snacks [...].The location is great, movie theater, and shopping within close proximity. The King Suite was a great buy and with promo code "WELCOME10" it was also 10% off.The room came equipped with plates, cups, utensils, coffee maker, microwave, large desk. Really well thought out...It was like a cheaper version of the Hyatt Place, all the amenities without the nice furniture.

It was quite adequated for a midrange hotel -- clean, quite,fair breakfast bar. It's a bit of a challenge for an early morning jog as the semi-rural setting has no streetlights nor sidewalks. Convenient pick up of forgotten items at shopping strip across the road.
