About the Ziegler Hotel

Best Hotel in New Bern NC

The Ziegler Hotel is an icon in New Bern NC. The
2-story house was built in the 1920's and served as a residence for Mr. and Mrs. Ziegler. During World War 2 The Zeigler's would rent out rooms in their house to young Marines stationed at Cherry Point.

 Mr. Ziegler had a watch repair shop in the garage located in the back yard. He had back surgery in the early 1950's and as a result of complications during the surgery was permanently paralyzed.

Needing extra income Mrs. Ziegler converted the garage into two motel rooms. Her success with renting those two motel rooms convinced her to eventually build two cottages and nine more motel rooms. At the time, motel rooms in Craven County were scarce. That was long before the days of large franchise hotels and motels, and she kept had no trouble keeping all the rooms occupied..

Mr. Zeigler passed away in the 1960's. Mrs. Zeigler lived in the house and operated the motel until they passed away at age 101.

By the mid 1950's the Ziegler Hotel was perhaps New Bern's premier place to stay. Anyone over 40 and born  in New Bern NC will probably remember the large neon sign, shown below, that stood on the The Original Sign for the Ziegler Motelcorner of Highway 17 and Eight Street and guided folks to the Ziegler Motel. The Ziegler is located 2 blocks south of Highway 17 in New Bern North Carolina. During the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, Highway 17 was the principle route on the East Coast for those heading North and South. The neon sign  snagged many travelers.

After Mrs. Ziegler passed away in the 1990's the motel was sold and maintenance was neglected. The charming old hotel lost her luster and was quickly fading into the sunset.

However the Ziegler Hotel was purchased in 2007 by the Tyson Group who are committed to once again making her New Bern's premier place to stay.

Remodeled Hotel Rooms, New Beds, Mini-Fridge/Freezer, Microwave, Coffee Pot, Wireless Internet, HDTV TV's, Outdoor Charcoal Grills and 2 New Hotel Suites with full kitchens and stack washer/dryers.
