Renovated Gem
Cookie-cutter hotels have their place. Mother Earth Motor Lodge is a standout! The renovated room we booked was a suite and filled with just enough colorful mid-century modern furniture. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good. Access is only through the lobby for security and there’s plenty of parking. We were in town for an anniversary dinner at The Chef and The Farmer. Staying here made the occasion even more special.

Two paws up!!
We loved the funkily retro Mother Earth Travel Lodge. The staff were friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating, and our room was clean and comfortable, with a delightfully colorful decor. Our doggie Dr. Jenkins (a corgi) also gave it two paws up. We can't wait to visit Kinston and Mother Earth again.

Fun decor, clean and friendly staff
This place had such a fun decor and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. With a little attention to maintenance of worn table surfaces and upstairs patio, this place would have been a WOW!
