“VERY, VERY ACCOMMODATING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2009

We stayed 2 nights at the Microtel Inn to attend our friend's son's graduation. We thought we were going to need a larger room for the graduate to sleep and the general manager, Nash Patel, told us he could change one of our rooms to accommodate a rollaway bed for my friend's son. As it turned out, her son stayed on campus the last night before graduation. For the graduation, we were hoping to attend it and be back before check out time. Nash went on line and got the graduation schedule for us and told us not to worry that we could check out after the graduation, which was going to be after the usual check out time. Nash was a wonderful host and they also provided a continental breakfast with so many items to choose from. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Microtel Inn to all our friends & relatives. Thanks, Nash!

We stayed in this Microtel when it was first built, maybe around 2000, and our experience was very good, so we did not even hesitate when we reserved here to break up our trip back home to Ohio from Florida (just a place to sleep for a night). What a mistake (although when I read the reviews here now, it sounds like some folks have had okay experiences). I don't know if it was just our room or what, but the room smelled bad, and there were stains on the window seat and the carpet. The entrance to the hotel was a mudhole (and it was not raining), and the grounds just looked unkempt. We had a guaranteed reservation, or we would have kept going after going to the front door, not even getting to the dirty room. The young man at the front desk was very nice and professional, but that is the only positive thing we can say about our experience. The room was so dirty that we did not even consider looking at the breakfast, so I cannot comment on that. Never again!!

I stayed here during the pinks all out and the hotel was awesome. The have the best Continental Breakfast. Most hotel make you pay but not this one. I have stayed at a lot of hotels and this one is the best. The staff that works there, they are so nice and willing to work with you on all your needs. The hotel is very clean. It is a place that i would bring my kids cause i feel safe here. The staff gets to know you and when they see you they call you by name. I just don't know what else i can say. I just hate to leave.

As the name implies: small motel, but everything necessary available. Rooms equipped with major appliances. Close to I77, restaurants and businesses. Great breakfast. Very good rates. Friendly staff.

This our second trip in 4 Months, we're so happy we found Microtel Inn, the staff are so helpful, the place is SO Clean, and we truly enjoyed the Healthy Breakfast. The prices are perfect for this crazy economy. and we will remember Microtel Inn where ever we go. My brother stayed in one in Erie, Pa., on our recomendation and was just as pleased. Thank You, Thank You, and keep up the good work. Those Pgh. Pa. people with the Steelers Six Pack. Jake & Stephanie

The hotel was OK. The front desk people were nice and helpful. The room was spacious but finishing elements were sloppy (paint, fixtures, carpet was stained.)

Exterior was nice and renovation work was being done inside, so improvements seem on the way. Location of the hotel is very good for access to Charlotte, Lake Norman, and Davidson College.

The rate was very inexpensive for the area - 49 per night. That was for a room with 2 beds, a refrigerator, and a microwave.

I've stayed in other Microtel's that were nicer so I hope they complete the renovations here that really are needed inside.

Dear Guest,

We have completed our renovation as of Jan 2009. All of our rooms are fully renovated along with corridors. We can promise the paint smell is all gone and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused during your stay.

We would like to invite you to try us out again with the new "Dream Well Bedding" and "Get up with Joe" breakfast.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience our renovation might have caused and hope you try us again soon!

Our stay at the Cornelius Microtel was a sad experience.
We booked online at the hotel website, but even after showing our confirmation page, the hotel said they didn't have our reservation.
They found us a room other than the type we had requested. The carpet was almost bare --- the thin bedspread did not even cover the side of the mattress - not even a clock in the room. It was totallly unacceptable. We would have changed hotels but we had to cancel by the night before. We could never recommend this hotel.
