The pictures on the website were all meant to make the hotel go a couple stars up. It is more like a motel and way below expectations. Bad TV, small rooms, old rooms, The main lobby looked nice. This hotel is a scam and should be called Calrion Motel

Do yourself a favor and avoid this hotel as it is nasty. The lobby and staff are very nice but once you get past that you will find paint peeling from every wall, puddles in all the dark corridors, and worst of all the rooms. Our bathroom was a horrible....the bath tub spout was falling off the wall, the mold... More

I stayed at the Clarion for 3 nights in June 2011. This place has a lot of potential, but needs a lot of work. It's super old and falling apart. The rooms are small and musty. Some of the staff were friendly, some were not. The breakfast is good (eggs, sausage, home fries, grits, danishes) but did not vary the... More

The room rates were great! We planned to have a Bar-BQ in the park for the family reunion but do to the rain we were not able to have. They provide us with one of there hospitality rooms. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Everything or anything we need they took care of us. From 1-10 we would rate them at 15.

We went for an overnight stay in Tampa to watch a game at the Raymond James Stadium. It was aweful. I actually went to a store and bought my own linens to put on the bed b/c I wouldn't let my kids sleep on those sheets. The bathroom was disgusting (we didn't even bathe there)...the ONLY ONLY thing that was... More

I booked this hotel online based on photos and online reviews, what a mistake. The only clean area in the hotel was the lobby. The stairs were cracked and dirty, the handrails were sticky. The room was horrible! It looked as though it had not been cleaned in weeks. We were forced to stay due to exhaustion and because we... More

What a dingy, depressing place. So old and run down. Could not tell if it was clean because of the old run down appearance. Had to put pillows by door bottom due to large gap, did not want anything crawling in. Never again!

We got a $49.00 a night rate from roomsavers.com and based on such a low rate I didn't have high expectations. But upon entering the lobby I thought "hmmm, this might not be half bad." And in all honesty for the price you really can't complain but since this a site where people want to hear and the good and... More

We loved our stay. The room was clean and neat. The pool area was wonderful. The pool was clean and heated. There were plenty of chairs and tables and enough covered spaces if you wanted to get out of the sun. The kiddie pool was amazing. Pirate ship with different slides a waterfall mushroom, it could not have been better.... More

A hotel with lovely freeform pool and toddler pool that makes you feel you are miles away from the roads - but in fact next door to TGIs and across road from a great deli (Jason's). and short distance from shopping mall with Macys and Sears. staff all helpful and room clean if a little tired.
