About the ONeil

Where classic style meets modern elegance.

The O’Neil is the latest business opening as part of the renewal downtown Kinston, North Carolina. Built inside a 90 year old bank building, The O’Neil is Lenoir County’s most iconic hotel. Still containing the vault and the 16 ton metal door, our lobby reminds you of the rich history in this repurposed building.

Refined rooms with a unique history.

Each room has been remodeled with your comfort in mind while retaining the character of the building’s former life as a bank and business offices. The rooms each have their own personalities, so each living space provides a unique experience for our guests. As you return to Kinston, your stays at the O’Neil can be special just by varying the room you book. Comfortable and plush mattresses ensure a good night’s rest, and modern bathroom facilities in each room give you the ultimate in replenishment and relaxation.
