Sleep Inn Garner

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Garner is a bit out off the beaten path, but close enough to Raleigh and a major concert facility to have several places to stay. We visited to go to the Juniper level Gardens on one of their open weekends. Looking for a place to stay near by, I compared prices and amenities and hit a home run. The Sleep Inn off Highway 42 is a real treasure with hot breakfast, free WiFi, clean rooms with microwave and decent size refrigerator is also had a great price. We were not disappointed. The staff was great and the design is quite lovely for a budget hotel. I recommend it.

Stayed here on the second night of a recent trip to North Carolina. Made the reservation about an hour's drive out and they accommodated my request for a first-floor room. They were quite busy, as the clerk said they had a wedding, a funeral and a softball team there. The room was comfortable, good shower water pressure, refrigerator and microwave in room, things were clean, fast wi-fi, lots on the TV to watch. Very good hot breakfast. The location is right off the interstate but there are lots of restaurants nearby and a Walmart down the road if you need anything. Great place to stay if you want to be near Raleigh but don't want to pay Raleigh prices.

Very quiet! Sleep amazingly! Staff was excellent! Very clean in a nice location in Garner. Will continue to stay repeatedly over and over. They were very observant of my late check out and I was not questioned or disturbed by house keeping or neighbor guest. Excellent

Nice place, friendly staff but a smidge over priced. Pillows are square and hard to sleep on. There is a wall plug near the bed, that was helpful and a chair for the shower area. Breakfast was ok, I don't want to hear news at breakfast but that's me...

Enjoyable stay. Nice shower! Classy. (Well, about as classy as you can get in this price range.) On/off and temperature are on same knob. Not hard to figure out. TV works well. Good digital pictures on the channels. There are multiple inputs (HDMI, USB, Component, etc) on the back of the TV, with the Input button on the TV's side. Bring your cable to throw Netflix from your laptop onto the TV. Room comes with iron, stand, TV, microwave, and decent size frig. You won’t need a cooler unless you have extra beverage needs. Holds lotsa bottles. Tell the kids that the freezer holds loads of ice cream sandwiches. 110v outlets are located for easy reach. Especially the one just above the desk. If you’re working at your computer, like I am now, you’ll appreciate that power port. (In some hotels it’s unreachable.) Although room is compact, the living space is well utilized. Solid layout. I got a good night’s rest here because (1) my mattresses had just the right firmness; very comfy. (2) With the white noise of the fan going all night, I didn’t hear the 24 large construction trucks roll out, which were parked all night in the lot below. (3) Being on the 3rd floor helped too. Well insulated. Fitness room is at the end of the 2nd floor. Three aerobic machines, towels, and water cooler. TV for all to watch/listen. Very courteous staff personnel, from front desk to housecleaning. If you’re the type to walk around the local area when staying in hotels, take note: this area is very very dangerous if you’re on foot. There is no way to cross the busy highway safely. There are no sidewalks, and no traffic signs for pedestrians. In fact, it’s even unsafe if you stay on the same side of the street when you get to the main road. If you go out, take your car. The pillows are more like half pillows. They’re square, like ice cubes. Keys are a little finicky. Even after they recoded mine, it still took at least 2 tries to get the green light and get into my room. Breakfast was fine. Hours are long: 5:30 to 9 a.m. Hot and cold items will get your day going with a full belly. All in all, a pleasant stay. Hope yours is too.

We went up for the Dixie Chicks concert Friday. The decorations are nice as well as the bed, but it is an older hotel. The best part is the staff. Jackolyn was amazing. Did everything she could to get us to the concert on time. We knew we would have a blast, but now we have even better stories to tell! We will definitely stay here again. Shuttle service is a plus for sure.

Stayed for 3 days--rooms, as with all Sleep Inns was small--but we knew that going in. Room was clean with all amenities you would want--great internet--Breakfast was very good and was kept full by a young lady who was very attentive to our needs. Front desk personnel were warm and Friendly on all the shifts we interacted with them--and yes this Sleep Inn has an elevator--some do not--we will be back

This could have been a decent stay if my neighbors were not smoking illegal substances in the next room. I was in a non smoking room on the 3rd floor. I stayed over the weekend due to home renovations. Based on the other reviews, which is why I picked this hotel, the stay would have probably been better during the week. The morning front desk staff were nice enough and told me they wouldn't charge me since i couldn't sleep due to the smell. I did check out a day early. I received the charges and i was charged for a night anyway. I don't mind paying because i did stay. However, they shouldn't have offered to refund me if they were going to charge it anyway.

The hotel was conveniently located for our trip through the Raleigh area. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Shower was spacious. The a/c was a little loud, but that wasn't a huge deal. Breakfast wasn't anything special, pretty much what I expect for this kind of hotel. Overall a satisfactory stay.

Beds were comfy, water was hot. I made the mistake and selected smoking on my reservation. Needless to say, I had to sleep with the window open in January due to my neighbors smoking illegal items and trying to cover it up with air freshner LOL. I would stay again, but I will make sure to pay attention!!
