We chose this hotel because it was close to the freeways, easy to get into Richmond & I have been booking through the Choice chain on our travels. On the plus side our room was facing away from the freeway, so it was quiet, the staff were pleasant & the tv was good. The bathroom had had a makeover with...

The front desk staff is very professional in what they do. I also like that the room has both an interior and exterior door. Very unique...

Saw some of these reviews after I booked. Found this place to be clean and convenient to I 95. It could use some upgrades and cosmetic fixes but for the price it was perfect. Shawn checked me in quickly and our food, to go, at the restaurant was good. I recommend this hotel, but don't expect the Taj Mahal......it's a...

Nasty Hotel - I would tell Choice Hotels, the employees were very nice but maybe put them at another hotel. This Hotel was old and terrible. Elevator did not work, hydraulic fluid dripping all over - terrible smell. Doors that would not lock plus this Hotel is a fire hazard. Bathrooms were bad plus our air conditioning unit had towels...

This hotel should be condemned. I had 1 hour to get checked in and get ready for an engagement. I went to the front desk checked in and was given a room. Upon navigating through the maze to find this room, someone else was already occupying it. I returned to the front desk and was given another room. Again I...

Dear Petula S: Thank you for choosing the Clarion Hotel Central. On behalf of my entire team, I do apologize for what happened during your stay. It seems there were miscommunications between housekeeping and the front desk that resulted with you occupying a room that was only halfway through the cleaning process. When housekeeping returned to finish cleaning the room,...

All rooms are entered via several out-buildings from the parking lot. Elevators spastically jumping around with doors that hesitate then lurch to open. Foul odors in stairwells and elevators. Smoke alarm in my room was missing. Sun shades/blinds at window are worn and see-through. I can hear the guest down the hall having a conversation in his room. Trim completely...

Hotel is right on the interstate. The truck noise is VERY loud. The hallways and my room smells of smoke. Hotel is in desperate need of a renovation and upgrade. On the positive side there was hot water and roof isn't leaking.

Dear England I: Thank you for taking the time out to review our hotel. Your opinion is greatly appreciated. It actually touches on areas we thought was resolved.
