First impressions mean everything. This one was just creepy. Parking lot full of weeds, building needs paint job, just a general scary feel. Really hard to find check in desk, walked through dark smelly brick hallways past a poorly kept up indoor pool and an EMPTY outdoor pool. Water park closed on a summer Friday night. Check in staff very... More

Just left and all I can say is stay away from this "resort". We had three rooms. 2 out of 3 toilets didn't work. 2 out of 3 air conditioners didn't work. Mold in bathroom. Stains all over walls. Elevators didn't work. Outdoor pool was drained for "renovation". Guessing they don't have the money to keep it open. Looks like... More

Where do I start? The room key wouldn't work. I bet I went through 8 keys in 3 days. The shower wouldn't produce anything hotter than lukewarm. Had to search the entire hotel to find a working ice machine. The outdoor pool was drained EMPTY (In June/July). There was an indoor pool which was in operation. No hot tub or... More

Don't be fooled when the name of the resort includes the words Conference Center. I checked in late at night after a long day of travel and could not get steady access to the internet. I was later told I was to wait for the IT person to reset the wireless router to see "if" that solved the problem. I... More

We stayed here for an event at a neighboring city. The room was nice but the balcony overlooked the roof. Huge place. Water park is not included. It worked for what our needs were that weekend but was way overpriced. Inclued breakfast not great

Yes the hotels old, but I found it to be reasonably clean. The staff was all friendly and the location is ideal. it's not a business hotel but for an overnight stay or visit to the waterpark it's more then ok.

Here is the deal. The hotel is old. It looks like they are trying to fix it as they go. Unlike some other people we had no problem finding the entrance. We pulled up to the big covered entrance underneath the actual clock tower. Upon entering we walked up to the desk and waited in line as the guy at... More

Just stay away. Cancel reservations if you have them. We had to move out to other hotel for day two it was so bad - with kids in tow. Major pain n butt but so glad not to be here another night. Just stay away! The outside is infested with Mosquitos.

The Clock Tower Resort is comparable to The Bates Motel. The outside entrances were not securely locked, anyone could walk in or out of the hotel. The grounds were unmanicured with weeds and untrimmed bushes. Upon entering the hotel, the lobby was dark and uninviting. When I looked around my room, there was a spider web with bugs trapped in...

This hotel is terrible.The carpet is dirty, it smells moldy. Its in dis-repair big time, peeling wallpaper, dingy halls, walkways falling apart out side, grass growing on parking lot. Out side our glass sliding door the weeds are up to my knees. The shower knob was so hard to turn that I was dry without a towel by the time... More
