A Warm Welcome....

This review is long overdue – I stayed at the Inn back in October and had a wonderful stay. I highly recommend a visit. Betty and John were very hospitable, and it was lovely coming back to the inn after a day of sightseeing and shopping. Betty’s breakfast was superb……and so nice to have a delicious meal served personally. And can’t beat the homemade chocolate chip cookies in the evening. This was so much more enjoyable than a hotel room. Thank you Betty and John!! I will be visiting again!

Simply perfect

We went to celebrate our anniversary and had a wondeful time. The innkeepers were both very accommodating and helpful! Betty gave us a map and showed us all the beautiful spot to go while we were in town! Our room was really cozy and the sheets were so soft I asked for the brand name of them to buy when we got home! Thanks again John and Betty! Keep up the good work!!

Nice stay in New Bern

3.0 on July 22, 2015

This was a nice, centrally located place to stay in historic New Bern. It gave me ideas about opening my own B & B! The plusses included central location, parking, friendly hosts. There weren't any minuses, per se, but I'd improve the following: Heavier blinds in the east-facing rooms to block out the 5 AM sunrise; the bathrooms were OK, but needed an update. The AC/Heating unit in our room was in a corner, which made it difficult for the air to circulate to the whole room. The breakfast was tasty and prepared for individual servings, but I'd consider a 'serve it yourself' style so people could come and go, instead of scheduling times to eat.

Chaming place to stay

We stayed and the Meadows Inn for our 15 year anniversary. John and Betty where amazing. They made us feel at home. They were very accommodating to your schedule and delicious breakfast. The location is within walking distance to everything in historic downtown New Bern. There is no need to drive once you arrive. Everything that you need is very close. We will be back.

A comfortable stay in a remarkable little town

We were looking for a halfway point between Charleston and Williamsburg and this town sounded interesting. Turned out it was a revelation, and staying at the Meadows Inn made it a complete delight. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, breakfasts were well prepared and different each day, and the hosts are gracious and welcoming and interesting. I'm glad we chose this place.

My wife and I stayed at the Meadows Inn for our 38th anniversary. We could not have picked a better place. The Meadows Inn is very welcoming and the room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful all three days. The location is great for walking to the shops and restaurant's in old town New Bern. We really enjoyed getting to know Betty and John during our stay and discussing the history of the area. They were great host and we thank them for allowing us to share in their hospitality.
