The 90-room Microtel Inn & Suites in Greenville still emanates the pleasant smell of new from its 2008 inception and belongs to an exalted economy-hotel chain that has earned J.D. Power and Associates’ Highest in Guest Satisfaction award eight years in a row. The hospitality center boasts proximity to East Carolina University, Pitt County Memorial Hospital, and the Greenville Convention Center and allows visitors to navigate through interior corridors. Each nonsmoking queen suite—which can accommodate up to four guests and one foursquare tournament at a time—is furnished with pillow-top mattresses. Thirty-two-inch flat-panel LCDs broadcast televised entertainment, and guests can surf wireless Internet or sip coffee brewed in the kitchenette. A 24-hour fitness center with treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals helps patrons burn calories during late-night stints of sleep jogging, and a complimentary breakfast fills tummies with muffins and fruit. During the afternoon and evening hours, visitors can soothe hunger pangs by treading toward a number of eateries within walking distance of the hotel.
Walking into Wildlife Inn feels a bit like stepping into the African wilderness. A full-size replica of a giraffe oversees the lobby, alongside carved statues of elephants and big cats. Guest rooms named for African cities—Nairobi, Casablanca, and Mombasa—are awash in animal-print fabrics and pictures of African wildlife. They feature mini refrigerators and microwaves and include a complimentary continental breakfast at a nearby safari-themed restaurant. The inn sits right across the street from the Winston Wildlife Safari in the Oregon's Umpqua Valley. Guests have easy access to the 600-acre drive-through animal park, which is home to dozens of animals native to Africa and the Americas. While you're here, you can also visit the local wineries that have made the Umpqua Valley a regional destination.
Wildlife Safari's 600-acre park contains more than four miles of winding grounds for guests to catch up-close glimpses of its inhabitants—more than 600 wild animals from Africa, Asia, and the Americas. What's more is that they can do it all from the comfort of their car. Through the windshield, families can view bison, zebras, and giraffes roaming the wide-open surroundings, living in harmony with other exotic wildlife. Founded by Frank Hart in 1972, the park has helped to protect endangered species while educating the public about them and their important roles in the fragile ecosystem. Visitors can also make arrangements for private and personalized animal encounters, as well as visit the safari village zoo, botanical gardens, and gift shop.
Captain Tim Abraham has spent more than 30 years fishing, both in fresh water (the Umpqua River) and salt water (the Pacific Ocean). So he knows his way around his 25-foot heated Alumaweld boat. On charter trips, he shares his expertise with his passengers, taking them on quests for fish that include everything from Chinook salmon and small-mouthed bass to perch. He's not intimidated by sturgeon's size, either. He'll help passengers catch those too.
