This is a great place to stay! The rooms are so pleasant and so clean and comfortable. The breakfast is way above average. We were there for a work filled week, cleaning out our parents home and it was a very restful place to stay after long days of working.

We are from Florida and November 2015, was our first time in Garner, Iowa. No, there is not a lot there, and there is only one hotel to stay in. We decided to give it a try. We were there on business, and needed a place close to the work site. Much to our surprise, we found the hotel, clean...

The best hotel I ever stayed in. great staff. beautiful view out back of pond. Loved the executive suite. Beds are great and can be purchased. I would stay there again. The breakfast is the best I loved the omelets. Rooms were so clean they looked like new.

Rooms are very clean! Staff is very friendly and helpful! The beds are also very comfortable! You even get 4 pillows on each bed instead of just 2 like other hotels. Right off the highway so easy access in and out. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that needs a place to stay in the area!

You won't be disappointed with a stay at this hotel. Friendly, helpful and courteous staff. Clean rooms. Good beds and ample pillows. Four on each queen size bed. Good breakfast and rooms are quiet. The best place for miles around. Cookies at 3:00 were a bit late 😩but worth the wait! 🤗. A walk around the beautiful pond out back...

We were passing through the area and needing a motel for one night. Garner Inn was a pleasant surprise: clean, quiet, good food, pleasant staff and a good value. Often locally owned independent motels are lesser quality, but not this one!

We recently had cause to stay at this Inn in both the suite and standard rooms. High end furnishings (real wood furniture, large TV's, marble/granite table and counter tops, leather recliners, chairs and sofas), fluffy towels, and friendly, accommodating staff make this place the BEST! The continental breakfast provides a wide variety of fresh, hot and cold foods. Reasonable rates...

Garner is my hometown, and we've stayed at the Garner Inn four times. The hotel and rooms are nicely appointed and incredibly clean--it gives the appearance of a brand-new hotel. The front desk staff are always kind and helpful. We appreciate the cookies at the front desk in the afternoon/evening and the large complimentary breakfast each morning. The free wifi...

Wow. This property is by far the most upscale place for miles! We just checked out yesterday after a three night stay. The place kind of wiped away all of our assumptions of very small town accommodations. First of all, I room was very tastefully decorated with granite and dark colors and a very comfortable bed with white cotton linens....
