The hotel is under going renovation, it is a little dated on the outside. The rooms are very clean and accommodating The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant on the property has good food at a good price. I have stayed here a couple of times when doing business in ridge crest.

Now Clarion. Rooms remodeled, seem nice except for bathtub and shower. Bed very good, flat screen tv but no HD picture. Clarion does not have breakfast! Building needs work yet, old. Wifi ok. No elevators. Make sure you look at your room before checking in, as you almost always should do!

Renovations had started while we were there, but the building we were in hadn't been started so wasn't surrounded by clutter. Room was clean, although a tad small, but we knew that since we've stayed here many times, and used the meeting hall. We like it there, have had no problems,We'll try it again after renovations are finished.

This hotel has been purchased by Clarion. They are undergoing renovations while still renting out rooms. I have to say that as outdated as the Carriage Inn was, I miss the cleanliness of the Carriage Inn of old. This Clarion is a disaster. I realize they are renovating, but there are just too many things wrong for me to remain... More

First of the reservation was lost, price was different. Room is very old, white bedding is so old and yellow, the towels are nice and white. The walls are filthy with smudges and stains. There is one bar of soap, 2 make up remover towelettes, and an envelope of shampoo. So much for luxury amenities! . The clerk gave us... More

I didn't make the reservation to stay here, but I had a pleasant stay. The room was clean and very non-corporate looking -- i.e., kind of worn blue carpet and a wooden cabinet to hold the old TV. But it was actually quite a comfortable room - no complaints. The people working at the hotel were uniformly very friendly and... More

I was told when I booked the hotel that the pool was heated. We stayed for 11 days in December and the pool was dirty and never heated, it was ice cold. We never used the hot tub because it was dirty. I used the gym once, it needs some updating. The treadmill worked and I used some free weights.... More
