Stayed here for one night with my wife while in town for a Christmas party. Check in was a breeze and the room was clean and met my expectations. Only two minor annoyances. The bed had a pretty big sag in the middle (which was minor) and there was next to no hot water in the shower. When I asked... More

They were crawling around the beds WITH the lights on. Just glad we spotted them and got out before they made a meal of us and went home with us. The manager acted as if this happened all the time. She did refund our money but there was no apology or promise to fix the issue. Beware!!

Thank you for your feedback. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable and friendly accommodations. Once we were notified, we did have a third party company come out to inspect the room along with the surrounding rooms. Their inspection concluded that there was no evidence of bed bugs found. We're very sorry you were... More

Reservations: Booked four rooms for NASCAR weekend well in advance. The person in our party who made the reservations was called four times to try to get him to release our reservations. Very odd! Hotel changed from a Holiday Inn to a Clarion in between the time of the reservations and the time of us arriving. Location: Conveniently located near... More

Reviews and price were what influenced us to choose this hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were very pleasant. We chose to eat at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our meals (the meals were huge). Breakfast offered good options and if you wanted something else you could order.

We just stayed for one night on the weekend to get away. We arrived pretty late - just before midnight. Parking lot was pretty full in the front, but it was a weekend. Hotel is just right off the Interstate so it was easy to get to. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was on the fourth floor and... More

This is one of, if not THE grossest places I've ever stayed. We walked into a tiny room that smelled like it had been deluged in Lysol. We wanted to put water in the refrigerator but how is that possible if the fridge's door doesn't open?? I attempted to work out at the fitness center but the smell of mold... More

Servers in the hotel restaurant; Debbie for breakfast and Jesus for dinner were amazing, overly friendly and very professional. Our room 208 had a crack in the window from top to bottom with only clear tape holding it together, glad we did not have kids with us, looked dangerous. Had one night when we went down to the hotel bar... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was nice. You could tell that some parts of it were a little old, but just little cosmetic stuff. The bed was super comfortable. My wife even said it was the most comfortable bed she's ever slept on.... More
