    « Great place to stay. »

    Nice hotel excellent staff! Easy check in and check out. Modern comfortable rooms. Direct TV offered the most channel choices.Good fresh hot or continental breakfast. Super nice lady helps with the breakfast service.

    « Overall pleasant stay »

    I stayed there for 2 nights and visited the Outer Banks in the day between. Very friendly staff, quick check-in and check-out. Room is spaceous enough for one person. Special thanks to the lady handling the breakfast area. One minus: The mechanical function of the bathroom sink didn't work well, water did not flow away, had to remove the plug permanently. I issued a maintenance ticket in the morning but no repair happened when I came back in the evening.

    « Excellent stay! »

    Our stay at this hotel was wonderful! They upgraded our room and made us feel really welcome. If you aren't a member of Best Western loyalty club yet, definitely join - they are one of the best we've ever used. Room was clean and well appointed, quiet and had a great mattress. Breakfast was delicious and because we wanted to leave early they let us come in early for breakfast. Would highly recommend.

    « Wonderful »

    We were here for a week for work. Absolutely every interaction with any of the staff was wonderful. They are the role model for "southern hospitality". A special shout out to Kimmy who is a real asset to this property. She registered us when we arrived and was so friendly and helpful. First impressions are so important and she couldn't have made a better one!

    « Quick trip and stay »

    Staff are excellent, very friendly and the accommodations are nice well maintained and clean. I would recommend others to stay as well as I would again as well. By the way, this location offers a military and state/LEO discounts but you must contact them directly for discounted prices.

    « Excellent Customer Service »

    From the moment I called to make a reservation, to the moment I checked out, I felt sincere caring and compassion from all of the staff. Kimberly was who I made the reservation with, and she found out that I was coming for a memorial service for my sister who had passed recently. She booked rooms for my mother and I, and then when we arrived, she had left us a "goodie bag" with a kind note of condolences and some snacks. Shayla was working late at night when we arrived for check-in, and she was very nice and personable. Checking in was very fast, and the rooms were fresh and clean. The next morning, we had a great breakfast, and then were assisted by Sabrina at checkout. The girls gave us a complimentary water, and made sure that we were satisfied with our stay. ALL staff, including housekeeping were very nice and caring. They made our stay a pleasant and enjoyable one!

    « Most Friendly Anywhere »

    This had to be the most friendly place we've stayed for one night travel stay, everyone greeted and smiled when encountering them. Rooms were updated and clean, front desk very helpful and gave tip on dining and discount related to staying with them. Although did not partake of free happy hour was a nice add-on option.

    « Not clean »

    The bathroom was not cleaned. We found broken glass and hair on the floor in the bathroom. The heater wasn't working properly. The room was too warm. We kept hearing noise from the fridge and from the water ruining from other guests.

    « Excellent Stay »

    Recently I stayed at the Best Western in Elizabeth City, NC. The hotel was very clean; all hotel staff (front desk,breakfast and housekeeping) were extremely polite and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone in the area.

    « Very Polite and Professional Staff »

    From the time we checked it till the time we left everyone we came in contact with were nice and cheerful and would go out of there way to do what they could to make our stay a pleasant one. For those that are vertically challenged you may what to consider packing a step stool to get in to bed with. My wife 5'1" with a bad knee, it was all she could do to get in to the bed each night. The beds seemed a bit tall and quit firm. If they would have had some squish it might have made it a little easier to get in.

    « Sabrina and her staff were awesome »

    I travel to Elizabeth City for work every December through January for the last three years and I always stay here but I've got to say this year was one of the best Kimberly and shayla have wonderful and friendly personalities and make you feel so welcome and the maid service is excellent especially Hannah I don't think I stay at any other hotel in Elizabeth city for the staff alone

    « Great Stay! »

    Just spent 2 nights while visiting family; and have stayed here previously. This was another excellent stay! Clean, comfortable rooms and hotel; very convenient to downtown, eateries, retail stores of all types. Plenty of well lighted parking. Very reasonable rates. Melanie's breakfast buffet is comparable to and as good or better than most Hampton Inns that we have stayed in. The Guest Services Manager, Sabrina, oversees a very friendly and capable staff. Will definitely return!!!

    « Very nice place, extremely nice staff. »

    I have stayed at this location for business, for about a total of 3 weeks straight. I wake up and go to bed, with some of the most friendly people. I caught a few of the names like Tiffany and Shayla, but if I never all there names I would list them. Such a wonderful group of people. As far as the hotel is concerned, you will not find a better one anywhere close to this area. The staff ( and I mean all of them), are as wonderful as they get.

    « Very Clean, Comfy Beds, Close to Restaurants »

    Great rate for CLC members. You are sure to enjoy your stay here at Best Westen in Elizabeth City, NC. We have stayed at most of the hotels here in town, and this is our favorite. A Feel Good feeling when entering your room.

    « Great staff, but old and tired Buffet Breakfast »

    I would stay again for the staff and how clean this hotel was, but if you plan to get some breakfast before you go walk past buffet. I would tell anyone to stay for 1 or more nights cause as we know when we travel hotels are scary even if you read great reviews, I always try to not prebook and go direct to property and look at rooms before I rent them and this hotel was great.

    « the best »

    quality and price very good, staff is great and goes above and beyond. would stay at this property over any other in elizabeth city. breakfast and coffee was hot. very caring staff, always wanting to make sure your stay was great.

    « My Stay »

    Second time staying at this hotel and the staff is so friendly and competent. they make you feel like you are a friend. The room smelled fresh and clean. The only thing I didn't like was every time you turn on the bathroom light, the vent came on and it was noisy. That was a little annoying. Other than that, the room was great and even the housekeeping staff was friendly and pleasant

    « Nice hotel for a reasonable price »

    Staff was quite friendly & helpful. Room had a nice king bed, comfortable sofa w/ hide-a-bed, nice sized Samsung TV w/ DirecTV (!), a spacious desk, and a modern feel. Hotel was quiet during evening/overnight hours. Parking lot is well-lit, and there's lots of fast food & shopping nearby. Free Wi-Fi was fine for streaming & work (FWIW, it seemed capped @ 2 Mbps), but I honestly used it less than I expected, because of the great amount of (included) content available on the DirecTV box. Free breakfast was nice (wasn't just muffins & cereal, like a lot of hotels do now). I stayed here on business (service call from Raleigh) & would definitely stay here again! Nice room, friendly staff, reasonable price.

    « Softball Tournament »

    Reserved 2 rooms for softball tournament. Took 3 calls to hotel to get reservation correct. Should have been a clue as to what we would encounter. Arrived after 10PM. Greeting at desk was minimal. Not greeted as a rewards member. Both rooms smelled musty. Sheets were yellowed, couch was stained. Exhaust fan in bathroom was pulled down and hanging from the ceiling. Bathroom so small could not close the door to get into the shower easily. Only good thing was the close proximity to tournament. Definitely overpriced for what they provided.

    « My favorite Hotel »

    We always stay here when visiting family in Elizabeth City. Our most recent trip was a sad one due to my Aunt's passing on 9/4/2017. I booked a Queen suite for the family and as usual was not disappointed. As always the staff was accommodating, friendly, and professional. I had booked for 3 days but ended up staying a week. They were able to kept us in the same room. They room as always was clean and spotless and the housekeeping staff was always on point with any request we had. It was a sad time for our family and they went the extra mile to help us! . There was an incident with one of the employees (Tiffany) that I witnessed first hand on 9/7/17. She was very professional and never RUDE to this other guest. I personally was stating an opinion to her when this man waited till I left to be nasty to her. I just want to set the record straight about that incident and praise your employee for her professionalism in handling this guest! My family and I have stayed there for all our trips and will continue to do so whenever in Elizabeth City!

    « Jammed in! »

    The room was attractive, but extremely small. The only place to sit was on the bed, or the toilet! I missed a chair or stool to sit on when putting on my shoes! The bathroom was so smail that the toilet took up half the counter space. The front entrance door is locked at 9:00 pm and if you were coming in after that you had to use your room key. Didn't appear to be any security and the area does not appear safe.

    « not a good visit »

    very disappointed have stayed there b4 and that stay was better then this stay the hall ways 2nd fl smelled awful the toilet clogged the first night front desk cking out was not friendly no eye contact too businesses on computer

    « Will not return »

    Dirty room. Hairs on sheets. Ac unit was pulled apart and not put back together. Pieces on the floor. Pink mold in shower. Keycard for room entry never worked...will definitely not return. Staff was friendly.

    « Don't understand the bad reviews »

    About 50 miles from Elizabeth City by wife decides to go online and read the reviews. After reading the reviews my wife began to check out other hotels until I reminded her that we prepaid and were no longer cancellable. We headed to the hotel, as a late arrival (after 9PM). The counter person was very friendly and accommodating. We entered our room and looked around. It was immaculately clean. I proceeded to rip off the sheets, to double check the mattress, etc. They were clean. We fell asleep right away, I had been driving for 16 hrs and was exhausted. Awoke the next morning refreshed. Proceeded to the free breakfast and made myself delicious waffles. My only negative comment is that they didn't have sugar free syrup, my wife is a diabetic.

    « Vacation at Best Western »

    Overall the stay at your hotel was enjoyable. I do wish the rooms were cleaned more thoroughly on a daily basis. The staff usually went out of their way to help with directions or comments on surrounding towns. I would stay at this hotel again.

    « Awful »

    Location while traveling to OBX was the only pro. Overall cleanliness of hotel was awful. Sink was clogged and maintenance wasn't available so the woman who checked us in came up to fix. Breakfast started a half hour late with many families traveling to OBX and looking to leave early for travel waiting to eat. Hotel needs updates and cleaning. Felt gross to stay there. Never again.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Spent a long weekend here for a visit to the Outer Banks. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was busy but they worked hard to keep it stocked. The hotel met our needs for a base of location.

    « Don't get fooled.. Don't Stay here at all Double zero rating 00 »

    This was one of the worst hotel stays ever. The only nice thing was the one receptionist at the front desk that agreed thing we not up to par! Our room floor was damp and had a humidifier in it when we checked in.. The fridge was broken also! The receptionist called the owner and he did NOT CARE!!!!! He cared less about the condition of his hotel!! They moved us to another room and that was only because the receptionist was nice. The workers are nice, but the hotel is not a good place to stay! I would only pay 20 bucks a night to stay here. We have been coming there for years and never had a bad experience like this that the Owner and Management did not care! This might as well been like a quick truck stop! Not worth the money at all! Stay Away! The only good thing were the staff outside of Management and the owner who did not care about his customers..

    « Do not stay here!! »

    I reserved a block of rooms for my family's reunion. Out of the 10 rooms we rented, there were problems in about 8 of them. This location has a big problem with mold. When entering the rooms there is a foul, sour, musty smell. Stay away, especially if you have young children or allergies. The staff tried to accommodate us by moving us around but the problem was too big.

    « Outer Banks Trip »

    We selected this hotel because we were going hang gliding in Jarvisburg, and we wanted something north of the OBX as we were coming from Pittsburgh and didn't want to be right on the coastline. We reserved at the last minute and found a room with 2 queen beds and a sofa, which contained a fridge and microwave. We received the room that we booked. The hotel's outside appearance was pleasant. There was plenty of parking. The staff at the desk were great! Very pleasant and nice. We called ahead to let them know that we would be arriving later than planned, and it was not an issue. The room was small but clean, and had everything that we needed. It was quiet. We asked for bedding for the sofa bed and extra towels and were given all items. We did have to go down to the front to receive these, as I'm not sure there was enough staff to be bringing them to the room, but we were making a trip down anyway, and the woman at the desk was happy to get them for us. I had issues with the internet and was not able to access with my laptop. I had no problems accessing with my phone, though. I did not pursue the issue as this was not a business trip for me. Breakfast food was good, but the layout was not the best. The counter tops formed an inward corner, and that's where the toaster was placed, so everyone was waiting in that area for the toaster and you could not access many breakfast items because of the amount of bodies in the way. It interrupted the flow. Also, the toaster had one side which was not functioning, so everyone was waiting on the one working side. The eggs and bacon were good. There were also pastries, muffins, toast and English muffins, and bagels. Yogurt and packaged fruit were in the fridge, and there were some cereal options. Fresh fruit like pineapple, melons, etc. would have been nice. They did have bananas and oranges. There was not enough seating for everyone at the time we went. The breakfast could have been a little better but wasn't bad. The staff was constantly checking supplies and refilling as necessary, and cleaning tables. Really no complaints other than replace the toaster and improve the layout if possible. Overall, very nice hotel, great staff who were hard working and nice, clean rooms, had all we needed, breakfast was included, comfortable beds and pillows, ample parking, easy to find. The sofa bed wasn't the most comfortable but was adequate. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    « moldy smelling and dirty room, lousy service, all for the price of a luxury hotel »

    Due to the evacuation we needed to find a room without reservations. We have been to BestWestern before and always found it to be reasonably priced, clean and friendly. This stay was horrific: overpriced because it was a weekend and rooms taken, the room itself moldy smelling and dirty. Attempting to speak to staff about it proved useless - as they clearly said: this is the last room, take it or leave it. I will not stay at another BestWestern again - this set the tone for how business are not to be run.

    « Shelter from the storm »

    We picked this location because it was about an hour away from Kitty Hawk, and we were avoiding the ridiculous prices in that area. Though we had only intended to arrive late, go to sleep and head on to our next destination, we ended up checking in earlier because of the storms in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. The sanitation rating was 100%, but our room had stained linens, not enough towels for the number of guests, and the décor was really outdated. Breakfast was okay, but not enough seating for all of the guests. It was ok, but our refrigerator turned itself off in the middle of the night, and all of our lunch items that we travel with, were spoiled. The hotel did make that right at checkout.

    « average »

    The staff changed the sheets after we found some scum on them but I never felt comfortable that the room was clean after that. Initially the desk agent said there was no housekeeping on duty. I did not like hearing that and to be honest-Just wanted the sheets changed!

    « Vacation for Outer Banks »

    The hotel was very nice. Easy check in and check out. The breakfast was really really good. The room was nice and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed here to drive to the Outer Banks because it was A LOT cheaper. My only complaint was that the air smelled a little musty.

    « Outer Banks Visit »

    Clean and nicely furnished room. Pool. Breakfast was very good with plenty of options and definitely an added plus. Quite a drive to Outer Banks from here...but better than paying Outer Banks hotel rates.

    « Moisture problem »

    The staff was very helpful, but the overriding issue of the stay was the odor in the guest rooms. Very musty/moldy smelling, with notable mold/mildew growth in the bathroom and air conditioning unit. If you have any allergy/asthma sensitivities, beware. Staff did their best to correct the issue (put a dehumidifier in our room, odor neutralizer, etc) but it could not be eliminated (and was the same in 4 other rooms we were able to check in an effort to switch rooms).

    « Great hotel for the money »

    The stay was great. Staff was awesome. Only complaint was the breakfast area was way too small. We have an infant and there were only a couple tables that were always busy. Other than that the experience was very good.

    « 1 night stay »

    Hotel was nice. Breakfast was great. Came late and had to leave early to continue our trip. Hotel was behind a restaurant and we missed the small sign and had to turn around For the short time we were there our stay was good

    « Good stay »

    Bed was a little uncomfortable, AND on our last day room could have gotten clean a little better Other then that Clean crew was great staff was Great We enjoyed ourselves GREAT PLACE TO STAY Thank you best western

    « Rude Service/hot hallways/ low pressure »

    After returning to my room 3 hrs after reporting some issues (tv and telephone inoperable) the items were not corrected and I was rudely told by the desk attendant that it was not her fault. She should have kept up on the situation and ensured the items were corrected. The hallways are damp smelling and hot. The elevator is jerky. The water pressure in the tub and shower are low. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

    « Under poor management »

    If you want to listen to the employees complaining and cussing about the customer. This is the place to go. The front desk didn't believe me when I said it looked like someone had been laying on the bed. After tell me that the all sheets are just wrinkled, they came to see for themselves, and all they did was straight the bed up. With an attitude one asked do you want to change your room. Customer service needs training. Then after entering the lobby I called back to the room to tell them that they had guest waiting to check in, there was no one at the front desk.

    « Great location before OBX vacation »

    Not much to offer in this small town, but a nice hotel about 60 minutes outside of OBX. Price way less than anything in OBX. Great way to avoid a costly night before a week long vacation. Highly recommended

    « Business In Elzabethcity »

    its a nice hotel and good breakfast. Very helpful staff. I have stayed in a few place in Elizabeth City and for the money this is the best value location. Only a few things keep it from very high ratings. Some of the office chairs in the rooms can be damaged and tilt and internet speeds are not very high. They keep it clean but on occasion the rooms can have a little odor but not to the point of stopping a relaxing stay.

    « Do not stay »

    The hotel is going downhill. It's filthy. They're is mildew called on the shower head, the rooms smell awful and the shower curtain had blood stains on it. We waited 5 minutes for someone to come to the front desk to check us in. We even called the phone in the hopes it would draw someone out of the office. After several calls, a girl appeared as if she had just woken up.

    « Adequate but a bit shabby »

    Quiet, comfortable room, as requested; polite staff. Breakfast of dehydrated fried eggs not very appealing but there was a choice of breads and yogurt also available. Overall, just a little run-down. Thanks to receptionist for recommending Cypress Grill for supper.

    « one night stay »

    Good for a stop over but a little over price,. for the location No desk in room. Staff helpful room clean building has seen its better days. Location facing the side of a business. Makes you feel like you are in the warehouse district. Breakfast is the usual not bad but nothing special.

    « Nice Hotel but front desk staff practically non existent »

    We arrived to check in at the hotel after 8pm on a Friday night only to wait for over 5 minutes for someone to come to the desk. There was no staff person in site which was a little annoying considering we had been traveling all day. Finally a woman came to the front and was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and quiet. The water pressure for the shower was not the greatest but not a deal breaker by any means. We went down for breakfast the next morning and they do have a nice variety of items and the staff was around to keep it full and clean. When we went back to our room both of our keys had been changed somehow by the computer. Luckily for us there was a housekeeping person on our floor who let us into our room. When it came to check out once again there was no staff in sight. I guess if you choose to stay here you should opt for an express check out. Maybe that bypasses the front desk. I guess overall it was a good place to stay as far as being comfortable and quiet. I just hope you don't need anything from the front desk because you may have to wait a while for someone to attend the desk.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    Room was good, staff was fine, bed was comfortable and we slept well. A storm came through in the early part of the night and being on the 1st floor, wind in the hallway caused the door to sound like someone was trying to get in. That scared us, but once we realized what it was and made sure the door was secure, we were fine. The breakfast was good albeit the line for the breakfast due to waffle iron placement on the counter was a bit difficult to get through. The hotel is in a good proximity to various restaurants so there were close by food options (you should try Montero's it was close by and delicious.) Overall, if you're passing through Elizabeth City, this is a good and safe place to stay for a night or two and we would choose this hotel to stay in again if in that area.

    « Recent Stay »

    I stay at this property on average about 6 nights a month for bussiness. The staff is always great and very accomomaditing. Nicole and her staff are great. I will have to try the happy hour as the last times I missed it . If it is any thing like the breakfast it will be great.The breakfast is always been very well presented and maintained.

    « Great Staff, Very Professional, and Kind »

    The Staff was awesome, the overall experience inside the hotel was good. I was here to bury my father. Only bad thing about the stay was coming in at night and you see groups of drunken construction workers in the parking lot..

    « My Stay »

    My stay at Best Western was great! The room was very clean and it had really nice furniture. The staff were great especially the front desk service from Shayla and housekeeping service by the Manager Kashara. Highly recommend this hotel!!

    « Nice stay »

    I have been staying here for some time and I have always had a pleasant stay with the hotel. The manager Nicole have always been real nice and I look forward to my stay again. Breakfast has been on point and also the happy hour is always a plus. The room is always clean and smelling good.

    « Sheets with stains and smoke smell »

    Whenever I stay at any hotel, I would check the sheets, bathroom, and towels. When I pulled the covers back on this bed, I was in AMAZED. There was a blood stain in the middle of the bed. Upon walking into the room, I could smell smoke in the room. Even though this is a smoke free hotel. The toilet had a ring, it look like some mold. I requested for a refund the staff members said I could not be refunded my money. They moved me to another room. This room had a smell and again a ring of mold around the toilet.

    « Beware!! »

    Hotel as an absolutely awful smell. Staff said nothing could be done. Had to go to local Walmart to get Lysol and used entire can for 2 nights. People with allergies or asthma PLEASE beware. NO LATE CHECK OUT.

    « Filthy »

    Checked out two days ago and am still appalled at how filthy my room was. Had I not arrived so late and had to leave so early, I would have high tailed it. Totally not like BW, I've stayed in several and they area usually perfect and immaculate . Let's start with the smell upon walking in the room; ok, not the first time I've had a musty smelling hotel room, not the end of the world. Then, noting the carpet had bits of who knows what all over the place, I began to wonder when it was last vacuumed. Next, there was someone's spit on the mirror from brushing their teeth, funk around the faucet, switch plates I did not want to touch, a puddle of oily Lord-knows-what on the night stand next to my bed, thick dust all over the lamp, a shower so dingy I was scared to use it. Luckily I was there for an athletic event so was able to get away without a shower (eew). Coffee maker; a few packets of this and that just thrown on the tray. If you've read this far, here's the best part, I stepped in a squishy, sticky, wet puddle of I-don't-want to-know right next to the bed. Upon further inspection, I found some change, stacks of dirt/dust, tags from new clothes. Really??? I'm still scared to death that I brought home bed bugs or something disgusting. Finally, did the clerk ask me how my stay was at checkout? Nope. Probably a good thing, I was furious when I left...NEVER, EVER AGAIN!

    « ECSU Trip »

    Good value for hotel near ECSU. Great breakfast. I would prefer firmer pillows but bed slept well. Great distance to ECSU. We enjoyed the separate Living Area & Sleeping Area layout. Enjoyed mini-refrigerator & microwave in the Room.

    « Not bad »

    The room was clean and staff was professional and friendly, but the quality of the room was not very good. The tv didn't work, the ventilation fan was loud and you couldn't have the light on without the fan on as well.

    « Nicole and her staff are awesome »

    I travel to Elizabeth city couple times a year for business The management and staff make you like you family The location is perfect Close to the Coast Guard base close to downtown and restaurants in walking distance I would not even consider staying anywhere else in Elizabeth city

    « easy stay »

    nice , clean ,modern room. We needed a place to stay on our way to the outer banks, We stayed here, it was convenient. The breakfast was nice and well stocked. Fruit and water in a bag to go. It was a very nice place

    « Nice but pricey »

    I have stayed here several times for work. I believe this hotel is a little overpriced since I spend 5 days a week in hotels away from home every week for the past 5 years. I do recommend using expedia, some other travel site or coupons available at most rest stops. You can easily cut 20-30 dollars of the hotel rate. This being said, the staff was remarkable and the breakfast was exemplarary. Comfortable bed, and all items in the room worked with no issues...well except for the TV. There were too many channels, I fell asleep before I could explore them all.

    « Great place, helpful staff »

    Very comfortable rooms and quiet surroundings contributed to a pleasant stay on Christmas holiday. Staff was very helpful. when I needed extra towels, and helped clarify billing even though it was late in the evening when we arrived. They helped us modify the online request for rooms and change it for a less expensive alternative.

    « great place to stay »

    This motel was very clean and fresh smelling. No issues with the room or any ugly smells. The staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't hear any extra loud noises from outside or the hallways. We will be staying here again.

    « Good stay. Recommended »

    My family (4 rooms) stayed here for 2 days. I have stayed at Best Westerns before and was hesitant to stay here because of that. They are typically clean but hover between average and slightly below. I wanted something nicer for my semi-large group. After looking at the pictures online and reading the reviews I decided to give them a try. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. The building was obviously recently renovated and had lots of new touches to make for a better experience. The staff was friendly and always present. I rated this 4 stars because the fan in my bathroom didn't work and BOTH waffle machines didn't work one of the morning we went for breakfast.

    « OK place »

    Spent 1 night here. No big problems, just a few small ones. The rug was dirty and you left black footprints in the shower. The bathroom is dark, it needs brighter lighting. Location is good, east enough to find. Places to eat and shop are close by. When I checked in I used a $50 Best Western travel card. The desk clerk said she had it and would take care of it. When I checked out in the morning I was charged full price. The young lady behind the counter said she could see the card, but it was not applied to the room. I was told her manager would have to fix it. Staff members should know how to use these things. I would not have a problem going back.

    « Won't Go Back »

    My daughter and I were just traveling through on our way to Orlando. I usually stay at Best Westerns when ever I can and am very seldom disappointed. This was the exception. The bathroom floor was filthy. I scrubbed it myself before i would let my daughter walk in there. The office chair was broken and so was the door handle to the room. I went to the 2nd floor to get ice and the whole front of the ice machine fell off into my hands. We did eat at the complimentary breakfast and it was OK, pretty much standard.

    « Bad experience in Elizabeth City, NC »

    Hotel room was small and cramped--couldn't hardly move around. Musty smell to room. Dampness in room was so bad it penetrated our luggage and some of our items were damp and we had to lay them out to try to get them dry.

    « Alright »

    Stayed with the family while heading to OBX. Upside: Clean and safe, newly remodeled (although I agree they should fire the designer) and convenient. Breakfast was typical and free 24/7 coffee. Downside: Not overly friendly, pool is very small and placed by the dumpsters which smelled pretty bad. Many of the fixtures in the bathroom where broken, including the shower handle. Also, no hot water. Overall it met our needs of a convenient spot to sleep for a night but that's about it.

    « Wouldn't go so far as plus... »

    Needed a hotel to house the 5 of us while traveling to the obx. Thought the idea of a suite with a sofa bed would do the trick. It was a tight squeeze for us which was okay but the rooms need a good clean. Sofa bed didn't pull out correctly so we had to lean on it to open it. The sheets for the sofa bed we got was a flat sheet and a blanket. Hoping the blanket was clean (not really thinking about it...). Breakfast was not so good-powdered eggs. The beer prices at the front desk were fabulous though as were the clerks at the desk. Don't think we will return next year.

    « Terrible Renovation, but Nice Sized Suites »

    The pictures look much better than this hotel does in person. Yes, this hotel is renovated. But my goodness did they do a terrible job. From the paint to the lack of grout or adhesive in some areas...they paid too much to their contractors. Other than this, our particular room was clean and the bed were very comfortable. We were traveling with a 2 year old and an infant, which we set up in the living room section of the suite. Unfortunately the A/C in this part of the room didn't work, but the fan provided enough movement to keep them comfortable. Breakfast was ok, pretty standard "hot breakfast" fare, but the room was FREEZING. My eggs were cold before I could even think about eating them. The pool was an ok size but was pretty hot due to being completely in the sun. I do wish they had some kind of umbrellas, especially with little ones. The hotel is in a great location in Eliz City, very close to several restaurants, which is convenient. Overall, not a bad hotel, but I would MUCH rather stay at the Hampton Inn in Elizabeth City instead. I probably would not return here, especially for the price we paid.

    « The room was not very clean. »

    The service was good. However the room was very dirty. The floors looked like they haven't been vacuumed for a very long time. I kept finding trash from previous guest everywhere I looked. The toilet bowl must not me on the list of things that they clean between guest either. The location is good. Seems like a nice town. Plenty of restaurants and amenities around. The continental breakfast was good.

    « Low Quality »

    Multiple broken/half attached bathroom fixtures. Attached only by plumbing and flopped around while using. Toe/Finger nail clippings found on the carpet by my infant daughter. Parking lot was like the wild west as people were parallel parking in spaces that were obviously not meant for that or blaring their audio books in the parking lot.

    « Comfy stay in a clean and new hotel »

    We parked right in front where our bikes were safely left outside overnight. Our family of 5 fit comfortably into a suite with 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa. Breakfast was good and we swam in the pool. We would stay here again!

    « Nice, clean hotel »

    Stayed here while visiting the Outer Banks. A little far out but it is an easy drive to Kitty Hawk. Breakfast is ok. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles and a selection of cereal. Also had yogurt, apples, bananas, oranges and grapefruits. If you don't mind a drive each day, I would consider staying here.

    « "PLUS" what?! »

    We were in town for a graduation. We were told to book here because it was close to the school and the graduate's home. When my husband called we were told that we had booked the last room that they had available for that weekend. When we checked in we saw that they had a "sanitation rating" of 100%. The staff was very friendly. Sadly, that was the best part of the stay. The room (king) was average. The air conditioning blew "almost" cool air (as if it needed freon). The bathroom was TINY. We didn't even have the roller that holds the toilet paper on the roll (the toilet paper had just been left on top of the counter). The room and bathroom were straightened up but not clean by any means. Dirty is a deal breaker for me. (That sanitation rating was a bad joke.) Moral of the story is that we will find another hotel.

    « Check the Sheets?? »

    Very disappointed to choose this location after a long day of travel. Appeared housekeeping decided to make up the bed with the previous guests sheets still on the bed. When we prepared for bed and turned down the sheets, was a disgusting surprise to find filthy, stained, sheets, body hair, and filthy pillowcases, There was no mistaking that these were NOT laundered. Staff promptly changed out all the bedding and apologized, but having to stand out in the hall for over an hr, after you've traveled with family all day is ridiculous. Should have immediately moved us to another CLEAN room.

    « Very nice »

    Very nice, renovated hotel. On our way to OBX but can't check in till the next day but don't want to drive 11 hours in one day either. Good stopping point as OBX is approximately 1 hour drive. Free breakfast. Shopping and nice restaurants in area. Front desk staff was very friendly. Reasonable rates. Highly recommend.

    « True Value for your Money + Great Staff »

    In town for a family reunion and was given the choice of several hotels. Happy we chose BW. The staff was very kind, the rooms clean and the stay was great. Nice pool for the kids and the gym had new machines and weights.. Very nice choices for breakfast and it was included with your stay.

    « We passed through Elizabeth City on our way to the Outer Banks. »

    Even with the Potato Festival underway, there wasn't a lot to do in town. The Best Western Plus was a pleasant surprise. Our room was relatively small, but very clean, neat and quiet - everything worked as expected. The pool was open, but the weather didn't fully cooperate. The breakfast was satisfying, waffle makers and some really good sausage were a hit. The attendant took time for conversation and a helping hand. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Best Western Plus »

    Staff was very professional and worked quickly to get my family and I in a room. The Lobby was neat and the hotel was very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone. I can't wait to book a room for my family next vacation!

    « Beach vacation »

    I am currently staying at this Best Western and I have not been disappointed so far. Checkin was quick and the ladies at the front desk were engaging and very nice. I knew coming here that there wasn't much to do in the area but that isn't why I picked to stay here. I am visiting a friend who lives in town and I don't mind driving to where I was am going to visit. It is very close to my friends house and it was a good deal for the time I am staying. So far I recommend the hotel as there is ample parking and the room is clean. I found that the previous reviews of having too much furniture in the room is inaccurate. There is a couch along with a desk and 2 side tables. There is also a fridge and microwave. The hot breakfast in the morning is great!!! The selection is very good in my opinion. They have the normal cereal selection and breads but they also have Belgian waffles, scrambled eggs and sausage, oatmeal with all the fixings fresh fruit, a good selection of yogurt and juice, coffee and tea. They also have muffins which are fantastic. There are a lot of construction workers and military that I have seen stay here so you can notice the dirt footprints but I know that they vacuum the halls daily and it is only in the evenings when they come back that you can see it. The pool is currently not open yet so I can't comment on that. Again I highly recommend this hotel when you are in town.

    « Great stop »

    We had a great stay. Free wifi worked good. The room was clean. The breakfast was plentiful and full of choices, toast, cereal, waffles, eggs. Places to eat dinner were close and varied. Definitely stop.

    « Great night's sleep »

    This location is on the edge of the congested part of the city but a very short drive to many restaurants and the main roads in the city. The bed was comfortable and AC worked great. The rooms are tight so it's great for one or two people. I think it was a former college dormitory hence it's room size. Lots of good options for breakfast with sturdy plates vs what has become so commonly found in hotels (foam - "I may fold in half any moment" plates) Coffee / Hot chocolate Tea available in the lobby around the clock. I look forward to my next return trip to Elizabeth City and returning to this hotel. Wonderful staff !

    « Great Stay! »

    The staff was friendly and the quality of room was superb. We extended our stay for an additional night due to the atmosphere of the hotel. Great experience! Wonderful people! We will be staying again!

    « Won't go back »

    Hotel was difficult to find to start with. The toilet was dirty - yellow ring. The bathroom lighting was awful and the floor needed washing. The bed was comfortable. The TV and internet were good. Not a place I would stay for the money again. Not up to Best Western Plus standards.

    « Microtel turned into Best Western »

    The Best Western company did the best they could given the constraints of the bones from a Microtel. Still had the feel of being a little Microtelish (elevator had old writing on plastic covering). The rooms are small - very small. Fan didn't work. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was efficient.

    « Pretty decent »

    Fairly decent hotel for a good price nothing really bad to say, the beds are pretty comfortable, tried the free breakfast and That was ok as well .. I just can't stand the loud automatic fan that comes with flipping the lights on in the bathroom.

    « Clean and reasonably well maintained »

    Clean and reasonably well maintained property, looks to have been updated fairly recently with new room decor and furnishings. Although the room layout was odd, with the coffee table square in the path of between bed and bath (hope you don't forget in the middle of the night). Overall, a nice enough property to stay a few nights, meets expectations.

    « Worth a visit »

    Good solid inn without issues or drama. Everything in good repair and very clean. Breakfast was well stocked and attended. A bit too much furniture in the he rooms. Table on the way to bathroom posed a hazard at night and needed to be moved. Friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

    « early breakfast »

    with breakfast served earlier than designated time I could eat and still make it to work on time, working in construction this sure helped me out.and the morning person was a pleasure to talk to she was always smiling and joking with all of the workers there for breakfast THANKS

    « Great and clean »

    My son recommended this hotel for his Coast Guard graduation, great call, hotel located just a couple miles from base, affordable and just what we expected, eggs and sausage at breakfast was a nice extra for a free breakfast. Entire staff was helpful and accomidating

    I was really impressed with my stay..even though i read some bad reviews.. But when i drove up and walked in, I was really impressed and the room was nice and clean..Soft bedding and lots of pillows...I will stay here again when I travel to Elizabeth City NC...

    « Best Western Plus Over Priced »

    This location is advertised as a Best Western Plus. The Plus must be the is the price and the wet carpet smell at ground level. If you can afford to stay here, Check and see if there is Vacancy over at the Comfort Inn first and put the extra money you will save in your pocket PLUS a much nicer, LARGER room. I stay in a lot of motels in a year and you expect to pay more for desirable destinations like the beach or resort location not in Nowhere NC where the only thing they have is a Wal-Mart and couple of prison and lots of solar panels.

    « Upgraded but still musty »

    Wonderfully upgraded hotel, but missed out on carpet and air conditioning upgrades. I never knew the brand hotel could dress so nicely and I was immediately impressed at check in; everything I could see was amazing. The smell the jumped out of the room was that of a dank location. If I had not drove 4 hours through rain, being exhausted and late at night, I would have asked for a new room or left completely if dealt another dud. The rest of the hotel was pleasant smelling. Location was close to restaurants and grocery shopping. I would try this hotel again if traveling alone and was arriving early enough to avoid a rotten apple.

    « A visit to Elizabeth City NC »

    We had a pleasant experience on our overnight stay here. We found the staff most helpful, outgoing and got a good suggestion on where to dine. We had a good night's rest and started the day with a very nice breakfast. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

    « Good value in an overpriced market. »

    First of all the price for a relatively safe place to stay in Elizabeth City is ridiculous. Especially when you take in account that ocean front rooms are available an hour away cheaper. That being said the Best Western Elizabeth City was a great value. The room was clean, comfortable, and up to date. The rooms are small with minimum space to navigate around a King-sized bed. This was not an issue for me at all. However more picky people might find this a life altering hardship. The bed was very comfortable for me, but my Wife thought it was a bit hard. I had very limited interaction with the staff. The interactions I did have were pleasant and helpful. I didn't sample the breakfast but it smelled and looked delicious. I would stay here again. I would also recommend it to friends.

    « Less than expected »

    Best Western is normally one of my go to hotels. I usually have a very positive experience, however this has not been the case here. I booked a 2 room queen suite, when I arrived one of the TV's had been removed and they did not have a replacement on hand, Their solution was to switch my rooms. The room also failed to haven linens for the sleeper sofa stocked in the room. I believe this is a trend in this hotel because the room I was moved into also had no linen but did have one pillow in the closet. Overall it is clean and the staff seem friendly and its not horrible I have just had better experiences at other Best Westerns.

    « disappointed »

    I have stayed in this hotel for 3 yrs during homecoming. I was pleased for the first couple of years. This year, I was disappointed. The room was musty and mildewed smelling. The shower curtain was dirty and too short causing water to spill on the floor. The shower head leaked and you had to play with it to get the water hot. I was not happy.

    « Funky rug design & limited proximity to surrounding business »

    Booked this Best Western because first choice in the OBX was totally filled. Less than an hour away from OBX areas. Our stay was not remarkable. We all commented on the rather odd rug pattern in the hotel hallway areas. Rooms were functional and clean. Needed a room with a pull out couch bed. The pull out bed was horrible. TV in both rooms of our suite which was awesome. Elevator is slow and gets plenty of use which makes access to rooms a little bothersome. Wore a shirt from a brewery restaurant in Hawaii, and was scolded by an elderly lady in the elevator for promoting alcohol. Definitely a bible belt location. Breakfast was meager. For the size of the hotel, we expected a better breakfast line up. Ended up going elsewhere to eat. They do have a coffee urn near the check in. The coffee seemed to be in supply 24/7. My biggest issues with this place are that there is really nothing of note around this location. You have to drive a while to find restaurants, gas, etc. Also, for a Best Western Plus the hotel did not overwhelm me. As rewards members, our gift was 2 bottles of water....there were 4 of us. Overall, just an average stay. I would recommend this hotel if you cannot get closer to the beach areas and do not mind the 45 minute to 1 hr ride to the major attractions and restaurants. Wifi worked well without incident.

    « Nice place to stay »

    This hotel is almost new. You can tell the new owners spent lots of money in remodeling. When you stay here it feels like your actually home. The rooms are nice. They are roomy. The employees are are all friendly. When I go home to visit I will stay here before I stay at the Hampton in or Fairfield Inn. It's very quiet. The rooms are very clean. Even if you need extra towels after hours they will get them for you. The also have hot breakfast in the morning. It's worth what you pay.

    « first one »

    this was the first Best Western that we stayed at using Corporate Lodging. The fact that you still earn points with Best Western rewards at some of the best prices offered through this check in service. the prices are about the same as the budget motels. the biggest difference is the comfort. iam hooked on Best Western!

    I travel a lot for work and during this week I stayed at this Best Western and I have to say, I will definitely recommend staying here. The rooms here are very nice, the bed was extremely comfortable and the hot shower was refreshing.

    « don"t arrive late »

    Arrived late (around 8pm), on a Saturday night... Check in was quick and easy.... property and common areas look newer.... was given a room on the top floor (3rd)... Elevator dirty and dingy, as approaching the room, noticed blue paint tape all over the walls and doors in the hallway in our wing.... Upon entering, noticed a mold mildew smell... Later discovered this was due to the window being warped and unable to shut completely... Door to room had dents, and security latch was hanging by a thread.. Same for towel hook in bathroom, hanging by a thread.. Bathroom tub stained, probably 20 years old or more... also fan in bathroom had a 1 inch gap to the ceiling, you could see the mold... Fire alarm in room disabled, battery hanging out of position... furniture chipped.... Some of the counters had a sticky blotch... a few more negatives, but lets face it, that room was not ready for prime time.... Asked to be moved to another room and was told they were full up... was given a 10% discount, but doesn't cover the aggravation.... I will say though that the bed was very comfortable,(brand new), and the tv was loaded with channels all in crystal clear hd, but ultimately it was a 1 star room masquerading in a 3 star property... Kinda felt like an episode of to catch a contractor, where they left without completing the job..

    « Very nice hotel »

    I have stay at this hotel twice due to family functions. Its really nice. I have stayed in two types of rooms so far and they both was nice. The second time I stayed in a room with a king size bed, and a sofa it was very nice but the bedroom was tight. I do enjoy staying here. Very cozy and staff is friendly. I do have to say I stayed both time over a weekend but I do feel they are pricey.

    « Clean/Professionally operated »

    Front desk staff was very helpful and professional. The decor was nice with very clean rooms and common areas. The breakfast was included and was actually pretty good. I thought the price was a bit high for the area but I did not compare it against other in the area.

    « Elizabeth City Trip »

    We stopped in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on our way to Carova Beach, North Carolina for vacation. The Best Western Hotel was convenient and affordable.

We enjoyed our short stay at the Best Western in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.
