The word on the street is this place is scarey. I was worried to stay here for a birthday night away from the kids. Lobby was very nice, clean and inviting. Front desk clerk was pleasant. Room was $70 on a Thursday night and included the breakfast. The room was your average room. Nothing special. Things that stood out for...

Very Poor Management! The people that work there were generally helpful, however the General Manager used foul language in regards to children and was very abusive to customers as well as staff. I will never stay here in the future.

Was met by "Jubilee" in the beautiful lobby of the Clarion. What a delight she was. The lobby was so festive, I believe there were 4 or 5 Christmas trees, wonderfully decorated by this precious young lady. I own a business, and she is someone I would definately have on my staff! Made us feel welcomed and wanted. Thank you,...

I was afraid to stay at this hotel after seeing some reviews. But I was surprised by the great service. Nice place, attentive support, good breakfast, great price and location. I stayed for 14 days and was very well attended every time I needed any help.

The lobby of the hotel is very nice, however I can't say the same about the room. Carpet is dirty and dated. The outlets are so worn out, a plug won't stay in. The 2 nights we were there we needed heat, but the unit had no knob and it was either bake or off. I had to keep getting...

This is a large but older facility. They have plenty of rooms with a large main facility with a indoor/outdoor pool & hot tub. The rooms are clean & the service was great but it is an older place that has been renovated several times over the years. They do offer a very good buffet style breakfast which is included...

I arrived ready to check in and the desk clerk said due to a "former manager" that check in time would have to be 4:30pm ! She had allowed a football team to stay extra long and housekeeping was trying as hard as they could to clean rooms. Overall, a typical Clarion and there wasn't anything really wrong with it...

This was the best value we could find on short notice in that area. It was a basic accommodation that met our need. The carpet was ragged and the door looked like it was being prepped for painting, but the bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The breakfast had potential to be better than most, but it looked...

It wasn't to my standards. For what we paid I couldn't really expect anything more. It's an old hotel and needs and update and deep cleaning. The amenities are great though. The pool was wonderful for my son and clean. The staff was friendly. However, they seem a bit unorganized and understaffed. The bed was horribly uncomfortable!!! My Husband and...
