Recently stayed at this hotel and the family had a blast. The rooms were nicely sized and the bed was soft. (slept great) Road side a little noisy but we did fine. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The kids loved it. Plenty of choices and food was cooked well. The kids loved the heated pool and the kiddie pool. They... More

The grounds and pool area are beautiful and the splash pond is too cute! I have stayed here before but the rooms are in need of improvement. The sitting chair in the room was filthy and the arm of the chair was completely broken. The pull out couch which replaced the previous bunk beds in the room was horrible for... More

I give it the maximum rating because this Clarion defied all of my expectations. When travelling on the cheap, you expect to have complaints but suck it up because you're staying for a pittance. When looking for hotels I tend to see a lot of comparisons to other hotels that are several times the price per night of the one... More

My stay at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center was not completely by choice! As if I wanted to pay all of my own expenses on an (IT) Training business trip; I had that choice available. However, my week of training too, was located at their conference center. Yes, I enjoyed the swimming pools; however my room was not very... More

Hotel was good for average stay. It is not the Four Seasons so don't expect too much. Service was good and it was located close to shops and food places and easy access to the highway. Only problem I had was the food. The scrambled eggs and potatoes were quite cold and greasy. So we made waffles instead. They also... More

The lobby and grounds are actually very pretty, two lovely pools are impressive. The bed was comfortable and there was a nice big screen TV. Unfortunately the room we had smelled strongly of urine and the water for a shower was barely luke warm. The free breakfast buffet was not quite as appetizing as the free food at a soup... More

A hot full buffet brkfst was good too. The lobby and dining area was neat clean and updated too.The only thing I wish... More

We spent a full week in March and this hotel is super. When you go through the lobby to the pool area it is like you are in a tropical island. There are two large beautiful pools one for the adults and another great one for the children with a Pirates Ship in the center of the pool. The breakfast... More

We were a group of 92 women at this hotel for an activity in Tampa and the stay was excellent. They gave us a very good price to the group and the breakfasts were also excellent. We thank each one of the staff who were very friendly and even gave us transportation to the group in a motorcoach bus for... More

The room was less then perfect. Every lamp in the room was broken or falling apart. The room had a heavy smell of mildew. The price was cheap but so was the room. This used to be a very nice Holiday Inn. Apparently choice hotels does not have the same standards for their hotels.
