I stayed in this hotel for one night, while staying in garner to attend a show at the Walnut Creek Amphitheater. The location of this hotel, compared to the price for the night was great. The hotel was close enough to the amphitheater, as well as plenty of options for a quick bite to eat as well as some shopping... More

I stayed here for a business convention. My colleagues stayed at the Windham next door and I regret not staying there. My biggest complaint is that the Internet is slower than dial-up. Takes forever for simple pages to load. Sure, it's a decent place if you need a place to crash for the night. If you are here on business... More

Went to this Lodge last night and stayed one night. I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually a decent motel. My room was clean, the TV was nice, and the bed was comfortable. But what I didn't like was they promise "High Speed Internet" and it was more like "Slow Speed Internet", Some of the light fixtures in my... More

This pace was cleaner than the last place I stayed at in Garner. The Staff said Hello to me when I walked by. The rooms were clean upon arrival, and ready for check in, no additional work was required. Noise from some of the guests was an issue but that is not the hotels fault, just rude people and they...

Evening noise minimal, mostly heard car doors closing. Hotel looks shady... Poorly maintained grounds, dirty windows and walkways, sticky chairs in the breakfast room, food thermometer sat on outside garbage barrel for two days (strange??). Breakfast food fair... A lot of carbs, cereal, milk. We stayed here using our Choice Privileges points. Would we ever pay cash to stay? NO.
