The New Bern hotel experience is a bit like the town itself – a pleasing mix of history and present-day comfort. The historic bed and breakfast inns are iconic New Bern and are a big draw for visitors to the area since, through them, guests get to understand first-hand what these historic homes were like in their heyday, only with conveniences we expect today such as free WiFi, luxury bathrooms and amenities and smart TVs . . . not to mention the often-sumptuous breakfasts (how do cheese-filled crepes sound). These New Bern B&Bs are all within the historic area, so it's an easy walk to attractions, restaurants, shops and other things to do. That said, many of the popular New Bern hotels are close to or adjacent to the historic downtown as well, and among these properties you'll find names you recognize and probably trust: Marriott, Hilton Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn. These nationally known hotels have the array of amenities you have come to expect along with some amenities that aren't available at the B&Bs such as pools, fitness rooms, on-site restaurants, shuttles to the regional airport and meeting rooms. Several offer front row views of the Trent River or golf courses too. So, how do you decide which New Bern hotel to choose? It's a kicker, we know, since they all honestly do offer something special. Perhaps it just comes down to the experience you're looking for – historic or modern, in the middle of town or a bit removed, cozy and romantic or perfect for a few days of work in town.
Occupancy at New Bern Hotels, Inns and B&Bs
The occupancy demand at New Bern Hotels changes some with the seasons and with popular annual events. If, for example, you want to be in town for the incredibly popular Mumfest that happens each October, you'd better plan well in advance since close to 100,000 flower lovers show up. Summer, of course, is also a time when people like to visit New Bern because of the town's water focus. Holidays can see demand surge too. Be a planner!
