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...

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...

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...

This is a basic hotel that was quite clean, comfortable bed, and quiet. Evening noise was very minimal other than a few car doors opening and closing. Stores and restaurants were nearby. Bed was quite comfortable. Breakast was okay, no decaf coffee and lots of carbs. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable bed, this is a good place...

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.

It has been a week since I checked into the Garner Econo Lodge, Sunday, November 7th, for two nights. It was around 5:00 in the afternoon and the lady at the desk was very nice and accommodating.

I had a business meeting in Raleigh and stayed at this venue. I requested a non smoking room for the overnight stay. When I opened the door to my room there was a strong scent of cigarette smoke.
