We read the reviews and had very low expectations other than a clean bed, and that is what we got. I believe this property is a diamond in the making and with some upgrades it can live up to its name "A Resort". The location is probably a hinderance in getting people's attention as a viable option unless the prospect is a boater. We met with the management team and made a few suggestions and if they implement that they will probably will generate traffic that will provide them the revenue to make the necessary changes to really make this property a hot spot near New Bern. They are close to golf courses and downtown New Bern tourism which gives some sightseers an opportunity to have a great experience. They need to perhaps partner with these entities which can help create packages which will attract more travelers. The only other point I would like to make is they should provide a "users guide" in the room, "how do you inform the staff that you would like for your room to be cleaned" and perhaps "another set of keys" so that if you have more than one person that each person has their own set of keys. We did not take advantage of the onsite facilities like the indoor or outdoor pools but from afar they looked clean and well maintained. The recreation facility provided entertainment opportunities especially if inclement weather arises. We had breakfast on Sunday and the quality of food was good, portion was more than adequate, staff interaction was appropriate and the prices were reasonable. I wish them well and we will be back.
