Visiting Kinston? Looking for somewhere fun to stay? Make sure to check out Mother Earth Motor Lodge. You literally travel back in time when you step inside the motor lodge. It was originally built in 1963 and was built to attract tourists visiting Kinston. Mother Earth Brewing revived the motor lodge and created a fun space to stay. Amenities include a pool, shuffleboard, mini-golf, and bikes. If you are looking for a cool retro place to stay, this is your hotel.
If you are looking for a more luxury experience you will want to stay at the O’Neil Hotel. The building, originally a Farmers & Merchants Bank, was designed by the architectural firm Benton & Benton of Wilson, NC. Work on the building began in 1919 and was completed in 1924. Now it is a cool hotel that features a 16-ton vault in the lobby. If you are looking for a boutique hotel experience make sure to check out the O’Neil.
