Microtel Inn by Wyndham Cornelius/Lake Norman

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Well I came into town late for a one night stay, so I checked in at 10pm. I got a room with only one queen because it was just me. The room was extremely small, there were stains on the walls, holes and sections of the Sheetrock missing, no iron, paint peeling in the shower wall, no working water in the shower or toilet, and when the sink water came out it was black and then brown. I went to the front and they exchanged my room for a double queen bed and it was much better. More than 2.5 times the space, working water, and everything I wanted to get out of the stay. Still no iron though. The hotel is remodeling everything one floor at a time. I would stay there again once they finish the remodeling in about a year.

Non smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. Hotel and room layout poorly designed.

Good experience. Room was comfortable, and a good value for the money.

Positives-very reasonable cost, nice neighborhood, helpful staff, good location, excellent dining choices across the parking lot, plenty of other dining and shopping options close by. Negatives- had to ask for hair dryer and refrigerator (which were advertised as in the room), kind of dumpy and not as clean as it could have been (Our room was OK, but other guests complained about dirty sheets and holes in the wall. One guy called the parent company to complain.), room never cleaned for a three night stay, had to ask for towels and empty own garbage.

This hotel has not been well cared for. There are some signs of having been cared for. It's not really bad, but it isn't good. The colors are poor. The sheets were weird, mismatched. The pillow cares were NOT white. Were they once white sheets? I looked closely at them before I put my head on them. Think they were beige, not discolored white. I frequent bargain priced hotels, but I imagine I will go elsewhere next time.

Great location, quiet room. One negative - hallways are reeking of smoke. Our room was a non-smoking room, and I am pretty sure no one smoked there for a while, but everything in our suitcase had to be washed - not because it was used but just because we had to walk from the elevator to our room.

great place to stay,bring the family you will have a great trip..

This hotel needs to be completely redone. The beds were horrible, room was nasty, and the breakfast was terrible.

I've stayed at a number of Microtel before and always had good experiences. That said, this was not one of them. The whole floor smelled of smoke and something else. The closet door was broken off. Shower and sink water flow had issues. Towels were thin and felt like sandpaper. The vanity mirror had a light on the left side only???? I must say that the man behind the counter was very pleasant and helpful.

We travel from Florida to Ohio at least 4 times a year and this hotel meets our needs.

It was a decent few hours stay. Room could've been better but I guess it was decent for the price.

Rooms could be a little more roomier but great for price

Very conveniently located to Lake Norman and shopping. Clean room, comfortable, and very friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Agree with other guest, just OK, good for one night stay, It was quiet, friendly staff, clean , but a little run down.

Was a spare of the moment stay so I wasn't expecting much. Overall it was a decent stay.

The staff was friendly and accommodating... As for the reviews that speak negatively of this place... The hotel is almost half of what the others in the area cost. If you are looking simply for an affordable place to rest you head this is the place for you... No frills.... A little older, but clean fresh sheets on the bed... The room has a refrigerator too, which the Whole Foods Market across the street would be more than happy to provide fresh food for.... A great breakfast spot is right across the street as well... I visit the area frequently and have stayed in several different 2 - 5 star hotels over the past couple decades... I will be returning to the Microtel... The value just can't be beat

Clean comfortable convienient friendly staff!!!!!!!!

Great room, staff, location & prices.... All and all good

Stayed there previously and was fine with this hotel, but this time, the room was not even cleaned between days....just bathroom towels changed.

tube tv not hooked up. had to listen to neighbors loud music and smell baby oil through the hallway. staff was nice but had a "no tell motel" feel.
