Overall, the stay was nice. The location is convenient to the small downtown area of New Bern, NC and the docks were well-kept. The adjoining store was nice and had basic boating supplies and groceries. The only significant problems were the scum on top of the water in the dock area, that mildly stained my fiberglass boat hull, at the waterline, and the fact that the water heater in the showers was not working. No one at the facility knew how to fix it so we took cold showers on a cool evening. Not fun. The next day, the owner didn't seem concerned and laughed-off my respectful and calm comments, and he didn't offer any kind of refund or discount on the dock fee.
We'll probably return but we will check the showers for sure, before paying for the dock space.
Perfect location for exploring downtown New Bern. Store has an amazing selection of gourmet food items! Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
