I stayed maybe 20 times in this hotel, always for business. and somehow it was always like a coming-home. So nice to be remembered by the really friendly staff, which is even flexibel when you want to change your room due to whatever reason. Whenever I will be close to Kinston, for sure the place to stay!!!

The absolute best thing about this hotel is the staff. Personable, polite, welcoming, warm ......none of these terms do justice. From checkin to housekeeping there was not a single employee that didn't greet us with a "How ya doin'". The king suite was roomy and comfortable with a very nice bathroom. If you're a shower geek you'll love the water...

This is a small town with basically 2 hotels, this Holiday Inn and a Hampton Inn. Both are older hotels. The Cons for this hotel: This hotel shows its age in mostly in the bathrooms (wallpaper peeling and bubbled up - probably from the moisture from the showers).

This is a hotel aimed at the short term traveller (it's right by the interstate) and has clean rooms and a decent breakfast. The gym was fairly good as well. Nothing special but decent. I wouldn't stay more than one night though.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Kinston, the ideal hotel for business or leisure. Also welcome to historic Kinston, North Carolina home of the Kinston Indians Baseball team that plays at Grainger Stadium. We are located just off US 70 midway between Raleigh and the Carolina Coast. Originally established as a tobacco inspection center in 1759 along the banks of the Neuse River, the city was first known as Kingston (named for King George III of England). In 1784 following the revolutionary war the people of Kingston requested the letter G be dropped. In 1826 Kinston was incorporated. Come see the many historical sights Kinston has to offer such as the C.S.S. Neuse State Historic Site and the Caswell Center No.1 Fire Station Museum. If you are traveling here on business, there are plenty of companies in the area including Electrolulx, Smithfield Foods, and West Pharmaceuticals. While staying with us our rooms are equipped with a work desk and free high-speed Internet. We also offer spacious king suites which include whirlpool tubs. In the evening come down to the lobby and indulge yourself with some of our fresh baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies as well as fresh fruit. Our hotel will do its best to meet your every need to make your stay as perfect as possible. Visit Kinston and Stay Smart at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites. ... more   less
