>Spotlight on the Comfort Suites Riverfront Park!

When Tommy Moore, Owner of Moore’s Olde Tyme Barbeque, showed me the pictures he took from his Comfort Suites room balcony on the Fourth of July, I was amazed by the view! After his attempt at a Guinness World Record for the Largest Open Barbeque Bun, he watched all of the activities, live entertainment, and the New Bern Air Show from the perfect view of his balcony.

I couldn’t resist asking the friendly Guest Services Representative, Frank Wilson, if I could take some photos of the riverfront overlooking Union Point Park from the balcony of Tommy’s room. He was more than happy to hand me the key.

Upon entering, I took a moment to take in the luxurious room outfitted with beautiful pictures, a large flat screen television, desk, king sized bed, comfortable lounge chairs, telephone…the works!

Then I entered the balcony. Wow…what a view! After taking a couple of photos, I returned to the front desk and spoke with the General Manager, H. Reginald (Reg) Poteat Jr., and Frank Wilson.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
