First of all...why don't hotels realize that people need outlets to recharge electronic devices ? Every outlet except the bathroom was in use. Tried to call the desk and the phone didn't work. The drink machine was out of order, there was only one working printer in the business center and it was printing so light that I am not... More

When we arrived after a long road trip, our greeting was a unfriendly "Can I help you?" from the desk clerk. Not a "hello", "hi" nor "welcome to Clarion". Not a real good start, but we remained optimistic about the hotel and our experience. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning... Here were our pros and cons... Pros: 1.Close to the... More

The Clarion Hotel is a nice place to stay at an affordable price. I've visited this location numerous times with my basketball team that I coach. It's not a 5 star hotel but it's definitely worth the price. The location is great, the hotel is clean and the rooms aren't bad either. Thebathrooms are updated, the beds are comfortable and... More

Came back all the way from 4th floor to receive another key. didn't work again. It's like a joke. I feel like I am in a camera show. I have 10 accounts in the... More

After picking up my bags, I called the hotel for the shuttle. The reply by Leslie was "It'll be there in 5 to 10 minutes". After 20 minutes waiting, I called the hotel again to make sure I was in the correct pick-up location. Leslie said, "It'll be there any minute". After 20 minutes later (now 40 minutes), Leslie again... More

The hotel itself is not that bad. It's a little dated but my room was clean. While I was waiting to check in, I did hear one customer get a room change due to ants being in their room and judging by the managers response their had been several room changes for the same problem. My main problem is the... More

This hotel was free for me since I won a radio contest...joke was on me! I would have rather slept in the grass out front. The whole place needs updating or set aflame. There were 3 ladies working the desk, 1 was polite. The carpet in the room was covered in stains. The curtains had a huge white stain. THEN... More
