We have stayed here 3 or 4 times because it is close to our relatives' home. It's probably the best option in the area. The rooms are pretty large, the wifi is free (I think) and it seems to work pretty well. The rooms are fairly clean. It takes forever to check-in even with a guaranteed rez so do not... More

The hotel was convenient to everything. Had a breakfast daily included in the stay. Had a fridge and microwave. The room was clean and comfortable. Ultimately we will stay there again.. The downside was the noisy guest above us for 1 night of the 7 night stay. It was unbearable starting from 1am -4am. Thank goodness the only happened once.

Phil was very friendly and helpful. However, the hallways were very hot and so was the restaurant, the bedroom was moldy, breakfast was marginal only because I could make a waffle, the carpets were filthy in the hallway and the outside isn't being kept up. Also the restaurant staff did not speak English well, asked very clearly for a napkin... More

Stayed here twice on either end of a Southern Road trip. Clean spacious rooms. Good value for an overnight stop. Restaurant is better than you would expect. Easy access from the North, a little tricky from the South.

This review was based on the facility. We were upgraded to a suite - 2 rooms with a king size bed and a pull out couch in the other. Our room was on the 1st floor. The hotel states it is smoke free. However, as you walk down the hallway you can smell cigarette smoke. The room smelled like smoke.... More

We spent the night driving through the area. Just as stated by most, the rooms are very clean and front desk very nice. We were looking for a pet friendly hotel. While it might be an older hotel, I recommended it for your stay. We did not eat in the restaurant.

I wanted a room late at night. It's pet friendly, which I loved. I'm away on visit, so I didn't have my puppy. Frieda at the front desk was very nice. The pet-friendly aspect is the best part and the convenient location! Great value. I wouldn't come here for luxury or romance.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The outside appearance of the hotel and debris cluttering the halls was a little disturbing. They are pet friendly which is important to us. Breakfast Buffett was ample and diverse.

Our room was very clean! We had a long day on our motorcycles and it was so nice to use the outdoor pool. It was very clean also. The desk clerk who checked us in was Bobby. When I phoned to see if there were any rooms available he was very friendly and answered all of my questions. When we... More

My wife and I stayed at The Clarion for two nights, May 23 and 24, 2015. I was very pleased with our stay and would definitely stay here again. They had a free hot and cold breakfast each morning which was pretty good. They did run out of styrofoam cups on Sunday and still didn't have any by Monday. I... More
