We had so much fun! The staff here is definitely the best we have ever encountered ever. Sitting at the pool. I would see multiple staff members walking the area keeping everything at its best. We could tell they cared about making the guests happy. We stayed at a poolside room with our kids. It was a great room by...

We took 8 nieces and nephews to this hotel (ages 8 - 18) as a Christmas present. They all had a great time! The pool area was the highlight of the trip, but the rest of the hotel was nice as well. Breakfast buffet was included with the room and was very good! Our rooms were located in the tower...

You can tell by the common areas that this used to be a nice hotel. The indoor pool is large and very nice as is the giant hot tub. There are ping pong & pool tables and an arcade. The actual rooms are in major need of updating. The mattresses are quite hard and you can feel the springs through...

I am a youth director and brought my youth group to Columbus for the Indiana District Youth Gathering Nov. 11-13. The Gathering reserved a block of rooms at the Clarion so that is where we stayed. I was impressed with how friendly the staff was both to me and my teen group. I love the retro look of the hotel...

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we visited this amazing town. The staff was wonderful and the suite we stayed in very interesting. This is an old Holiday Inn and we wee told the architect visited all the significant places in Columbus....and there are many....and designed it with those visits in mind. He was a picker and...

I am from Columbus so I knew that the Clarion has a decently priced stay for a 20-something's budget like mine. My boyfriend and I had decided on taking a spur of the moment couples weekend but everything in Nashville was booked. Our room at the clarion was very clean and tidy. I did not take a shower in the...

We stayed here before a local high school sporting event. We received a group rate of $88, which was quite reasonable. There was a hot breakfast which was good. The rooms were a little dated, but I slept comfortably. Two things were below average. One, the window from our 5th floor room fully opened. As a dad of an active...

We were traveling to Indiana and needed a hotel near" Little Nashville/Brown County" found this Hotel last minute. The room was clean and we ate at the onsite restaurant which the food was very good. The staff was friendly. The hotel is an older hotel but seems well maintained. We even tried to stay an extra night but they were...

I was trying to book comfort inn because we had stayed in one before and liked it and we had a member rewards number . But they were booked and this hotel is also a hotel in the same chain. I didn't look at reviews thinking it would be just as good but it was NOT. At first glance it...

Where do I begin!! Looked the same as it did 30+ years ago, maybe even the same carpets!! 😝 We Had to ask front desk nearly daily for toilet paper. One day rather than clean our room, it was sprayed with perfumes that were sooo offensive. Free breakfast was sad: buffet area was dirty, food slopped everywhere, understaffed and no...
